In case you find this blog

I just realized I never updated this blog. In case you are wondering, LB found a home over a year ago. She lives with 2 dogs and absolutely LOVES them. She is also still (knock on wood) symptom free. YEAH!

Little Bird needs a NEW home :(

Sadly, Little Bird was diagnosed with Feline Leukemia (FELV) back in early September. Burta, the resident adult cat who had been mothering her and cleaning her had to go to stay with a friend. Burta has currently tested negative for the disease.

Little Bird stayed with her humans for 2 months, but Burta finally had to come home. So Little Bird has moved onto the next phase of her adventure - to a new foster home where she lives with 2 dogs. In less than a week, she adjusted to the dogs and was already sleeping with them and jumping on them. She is just so brave and isn't phased by anything. THANK YOU to the wonderful human who is fostering her and watching her grow.

She needs a permanent home, though. Somewhere she can live as the only cat or with other cats who are FELV positive. Cats who are vaccinated against this disease will still be at risk if they live with her. She can live with dogs - and obviously live happily with them. She loves humans. She'll need to be an indoor-only cat, to protect her but also to make sure she can't pass the disease on to another cat outside.

She'll make a GREAT companion. If you would like to meet her, please email me at

LB and her new friend

LB (now Alex) has been in her new home since Friday night. The first 24 hours was a bit stressful as the resident cat, Burta (who is 3) was not thrilled about a new kitten in the house. There was hissing. LB then spent about 20 hours in a bathroom where she played and jumped and snuggled with her new humans. Burta smelled her through the door.

Sunday night LB came out and hung with Burta and her humans - no hissing!

Monday night, this photo was taken (it's dark, but hopefully you can see them hanging out a foot apart):

It seems that these 2 will be fast and good friends. YEAH!

Mission complete: Little Bird goes home!

At 6:41 pm, 2 weeks and 1 day after FFF rescued her, LB went to her new and final destination. She's got 2 humans to adore her and 1 cat friend to teach her how to be a cat.

Her weight just before she went home tonight: 1 & 3/4 pounds. She gained a full pound since I met her.

Will she be long-haired? Medium-haired? Who knows, but she went to live with friends of mine and I feel lucky that I will therefore get to see her grow up and know who she becomes.

To everyone who helped - FFF, auntie Megan who "socialized" her during the day when she came to work with me (which meant cuddling and playing with her and bottle feeding her), her guardian who anonymously covered her vet bills, Laura who lent me the large crate and kitty hammock, Lori the pet-sitter who donated her pet-sitting services while I was away last weekend, my vets who showered her with veterinary expertise and got her back to good health, Robin who played with her over lunch, and of course my darling husband who tolerated me bringing another rescued creature into our small home - THANK YOU. It really did take a village but she was worth it.

BIG night of activity!

First, LB has to eat:

And then check out a sneaker:

Then it's play time:

Some videos of the evening's activities!

Lb and her pal the DOG!

A friend to all, LB and Sky the dog are buddies. This is them when LB is in the kennel - but when she's out, the touch noses, Sky licks her, LB rides on her back, and they hang out. Of course, when I go to take a picture of any of the above-mentioned activities, they stop and LB comes charging or goes charging, whichever floats her boat!
