Here’s how the money will enable HSGD to help even more cats:
🐈💗 $440 for winter shelter workshop to help keep community cats warm and dry in the winter. (The remainder of the funds for these shelters has been raised. Once the total amount is raised, they will have supplies to make 100 winter cat shelters!)
🐈💗 $210 to microchip 30 cats (every cat that enters our adoption program is microchipped)
🐈💗 $350 to spay/neuter 9 cats (every cat that enters our adoption program or is in our T-N-R program is spayed/neutered)
TOTAL = $1,000
You may think giving a small amount isn’t much, but it’s everything! When all those dollars add up, they can do so much for kitties like us.
If you have some extra coin, we hope you’ll spread some love and donate.
I’ve been filling in Safari on my Instagram news, now I want to share it with you.
Getting on the Internet has been so eye opening. Since my last post, I’ve discovered Instagram and started using it to make new friends. Lots of cats hang out there.
I decided to go all in and create an Instagram TV channel. I debuted my first masterpiece. I call it Origin Story. It’s three minutes long and has cool jazz.
My other big news, I discovered a magic portal that lets me go to all kinds of places and sometimes when I get there, I’m huge. It’s a wild ride.
I showed Safari and he loves it! I was hoping to keep it from Lisa, but she figured it out when she saw all the selfies in her phone. Fortunately she is cool with us using it. I need to get my own phone.
So busy lately. I’m exhausted just telling you about it. Have a good one.
Hi guys. Long time, no blog. I’ve been kind of busy lately, but I wanted to jump on here and give you a mouse update.
I have more evidence that the mice in this house are terrified of me. Remember how I told you that they freeze when I’m around and they don’t move unless I fling them around? Well here’s a lively one and I only ever see it move when Lisa is near it. Clearly it thinks Lisa will somehow protect it, like she protects Safari and me. Wrong.
I do like that I have a bit more of a challenge chasing it and batting at it. It also jumps pretty high, but it is still no match for me. Lisa keeps saying she wants to record my aerial acrobats, but can’t quite catch it with her phone. Hello. Has she not heard of a GoPro? What kind of a professional cat photographer is she? I should probably research it for her. I’m so getting into the Internet.
Speaking of obsessions, Safari has become convinced there is chicken in this canvas. I might have told him this. 😂😻
Lisa loved watching him hunt for it, but I think she figured out I tricked him. Look at what she made us do for St Patrick’s Day. I was indignant. If she thinks she can start putting clothes on us she is in for a rude awakening.
Ok. I need go bunny kick something now. Happy Caturday.
Hi Friends. I have a few PSAs I need to share, so I’m just going to bang out a quick post today.
First one is to drink water. It’s super important for everyone to drink water. I’ve heard rumors that some cats don’t drink enough. I’m not sure why. We love it and make regular visits to our fountain. Safari loves it even more than I do, which is good, because boy cats tend to get UTIs and stuff more than we girls do. It has something to do with their shorter urinary tracts or something. Anyway, drink up and stay healthy.
Next one is about claws. Folks, paws need claws. Seriously. These are part of our bodies so don’t declaw. It’s so not cool and it hurts us. I won’t go into more detail, but you can google it. I’m learning all kinds of stuff now that I am online. I googled so much yesterday I missed a nap. Anyway, my claws are magnificent and I’m glad I will always have them.
One more thing. While I was googling I kept finding references to “you snooze you lose” like it’s a bad thing and you miss out. I love to snooze. In fact, I think it should be “you snooze you win a nap.” I’m starting to think that not everything on the Internet is true.
I like keeping it real, so I augment the food Lisa puts out for us by going on the hunt every day. Helps keep me in shape too. The mice around here are pretty lifeless though. I think they are terrified of me, because they freeze up when I’m around. The only time I see them move is when Lisa flings them around, which is weird, because she tells me all the time how much she is afraid of mice.
Anyway, I find them all over the house, so it keeps me busy. I especially like to get in a morning hunt and another during the night when Lisa goes to bed. Sometimes I leave them in places where she hangs out or in her handbag in case she needs a snack. Personally I don’t care for them. I mean I’ll lick them and give them a bite sometimes, but between you and me I am very glad that I don’t have to eat them.
Safari is another story. He goes for these pink sticks. I kid you not. I don’t think they are even real creatures, more like toys, but what are they even supposed to look like? Maybe we’ve just been living inside too long, but I don’t get it. He loves them though. Lisa says he’s goofy. She calls us a lot of names and I think that time she nailed him. He does have some good pounce moves. I trained him well.
He’s a really good brother. Lisa tells me I’m lucky to have him and to be sweet to him. I think she used to worry that I might bully him. When we first moved in here, everything was so new and I had to make sure he remembered that I’m in charge. We never lived in a house before and I’ll be honest with you, as wonderful as this place is it was a lot to take in at first. It’s also possible I have some control issues. Sometimes I make him move if I want to sit where he is (or even just to prove I can make him move). This used to lead to some bickering and boxing, but that’s all behind us now.
We like hanging out together and I’d say we are a pretty affectionate family. Lisa always greets us with pets and her lovey words, and Safari and I like to nose kiss and rub heads. We are pretty much always together, so mostly we do this when we wake up from our naps or circle the kitchen waiting for that delicious chicken. We also groom each other a lot. Lisa is constantly snapping pics, so we have to look good 24/7. We like to look out of the window together, play with toys, chase each other, and sometimes cuddle. Lisa goes bonkers when we cuddle together with her. It’s like her favorite thing. Ever. She tells us we are together forever. I like the sound of that.
Okay friends. I think that does it for today. Blogging is exhausting. I’m starting to get this concept of work. Time for a catnap, or as I call it a nap.
