Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – March 27, 2017

Bow-Tie looks cute for his blogDear Friends,

I am so excited and anxious to share this news!

It’s about my most important mission….

…getting special needs cats adopted.

I work hard to help find my special needs friends (Friends Like Me) forever homes.

Everywhere I go I spread the news, ask for donations, and pass out literature.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie's bow tie is spinningWell, guess what?

There are only two special needs cats left at Cat Depot right now!

All the rest of them have been adopted!

That makes me so happy my bow tie is spinning!

But, there are still two Friends Like Me kitties there who need homes.

Please let me introduce them.

 

 

 

Torrie longs for a homeThis is Torrie, a beautiful and refined lady who likes head and chin scratches.

She would be comfortable curling up on your bed for a nap.

Torrie is 8.5 years young.

Sadly, she was relinquished because of inconsistent litter box use.

As if often the case, the cause was medical and not behavioral.

She has proper litter box habits now when she is well.

She is on a prescription diet to battle her (sorry, folks) constipation.

Torrie has someone who will pay her adoption fee when she finds her forever home.

 

Bonanza longs to find a familyNow meet Bonanza…

…how pretty is she?!?

Bonanza is an affectionate girl who enjoys attention and human interaction.

She likes to rub against people and encourage them to pet her.

Bonanza is 7.5 years young.

She has some spine issues and arthritis, but doesn’t let that stop the outflow of love.

She is on kidney supplements (sprinkled on her food) and a special dry diet.

 

 

Bow-Tie counts his moneyAs I write this, Bonanza just plucked one of my heart strings.

Do you know what I’m going to do?

I checked my stash, and I have enough to purrsonally pay for Bonanza’s adoption.

We just need someone to come and fall in love with her, and take her home.

Will you be that someone?

 

Please go to Cat Depot and see both Torrie and Bonanza.

The adoption fees will be paid.

The special needs food is not expensive.

The love these two girls have to share is priceless.

 

Bow-Tie loves his jobThis is why I love what I do.

I help my Friends Like Me kitties find loving homes.

I’ll sleep good tonight.

Love,

Bow-Tie
The Dapper Gent

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – February 20, 2017

Turtle girlHi everyone,

It was exactly a year ago a very special little lady came into our home.

This is Blueberry.

She was very, very shy at the time.

She also has very poor vision, which made her frightened of everything.

 

Like me, she is from a hoarding home.

People hear the word “hoarding” and tend to look away.

It’s ugly, I agree.

But animals in hoarding houses need humans.

Cat Depot’s Community Cat Care goes into these bad situations and helps the cats.

 

Food bowl in a hoarding houseThis is the type of food plates found in Blueberry’s home.

Bugs thrive in that environment, but cats cannot.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cats being rescued from a hoarding houseThis is what happened to Blueberry and her family when Community Cat Care arrived.

They were humanely trapped and taken to Cat Depot.

They were tended to medically and then spayed and neutered.

 

Why am I telling you this now?

Why am I showing you these unattractive moments?

 

Because now I want you to see this…

Blueberry

…meet happy, healthy, and well-adjusted Blueberry today!

 

Two of the other cats were named Abbott and Costello.

Abbott and LeviMeet Abbott and his brother Levi.

Costello has a new loving family too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Abbott and LeviSo, thank you to Cat Depot’s Community Cat Care Team.

Because of the care cats receive when we are in dire situations, we can have happy endings.

Just like Abbott and Costello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and BlueberryAnd just like my Blueberry.

Thank you.

Have a happy week!

Love,

Bow-Tie

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – August 15, 2016

Bow-Tie wears a black bow tieHi Everybody,

Big week coming up in the cat world!

I’m not sporting this black tie for nothing.

I have an important announcement.

 

August 17th is National Black Cat Appreciation Day!

Cat Depot is making it National Black Cat Week from August 15th to August 21st.

During that week, all adopters of black cats get a $20 gift certificate to Columbia Restaurant… and a feline friend for life.

 

Bow-Tie laughs at humansSometimes it’s a little bit harder for black cats to get adopted.

That’s because people are silly and believe silly things.

It makes me laugh that humans are so silly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Black cats are wonderful.

Let me show you some of my special black friends who need homes.

 

Marcus is an adoptable cat at Cat DepotThis is Marcus.

Marcus is a handsome dude who is very gentle and quiet.

He would love a nice, quiet home.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rosalita is an adoptable cat at Cat DepotThis is Rosalita.

She’s a pretty little girl, isn’t she?

She would add beauty to any home and family.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jade is an adoptable cat at Cat DepotMeet Jade.

She’s a lovely, petite girl who would love to curl up on your lap.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stardust is an adoptable cat at Cat DepotThis is Stardust.

She is a little cutie who loves to give head rubs.

Stardust is FIV positive, but perfectly healthy, and will live a long life.

If you do not know about FIV cats, please talk to the people at Cat Depot.

They will educate you on these cats and prove they are just as wonderful as any other cat.

Stardust will show you herself if you stop in to see her.

 

So these are my black cat friends, and this is my wish…

…that you adopt a black cat during National Black Cat Appreciation Week, August 15-21.

 

And to all those silly humans who think black cats are any less lucky in life, I say…

Bow-Tie makes a goofy face

…take that!

Here’s to black cats, and National Black Cat Week!

Bow-Tie,
The Dapper Gent

Bow-tie feeling betterDear Everyone,

I’m feeling better now.

Still on my medicine, but I’m feeling great.

So it’s back to work for me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie shouts out about his latest projectI’m shouting out loud about my newest project.

This one is close to my heart.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LoverboyMeet Loverboy…

…he is a special needs friend of mine.

He is 8 years old.

He has severe stomatitis and decreased kidney function.

Decreased kidney function is pretty common, and can be controlled.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie shows he doesn't have teethThe stomatitis is something I can relate to, because it involves teeth and gums.

I had it myself.

The cure? Get those teeth out of there and get to fixing the inflammation.

Cat Depot pulled all his teeth and he is much, much better now.

Once the choppers come out, the pain goes with it.

Eating soft food is easy to do.

Hard food has to go down whole, so we need a lot of water.

I eat hard and soft and never have a problem.

Loverboy will eat just fine, and his mouth won’t ever hurt him again.

 

Loverboy is a complete lap cat.

He loves humans and loves attention.

 

I’m on a campaign to get Loverboy into a loving home right away.

He’s at Cat Depot, and he is ready to go home.

 

Bow-Tie offers his pocket moneySpecial needs cats sometimes take a little extra financial support.

Most of the work has already been done and paid for on Loverboy. But he does need medicine and regular check-ups with the doctor.

I’m prepared to chip in for his adoption.

(I have inside information that Cat Depot may be working on something special, too.)

Don’t let a little money stand in the way of love.

And don’t let a toothless kitty scare you.

We can lick you just as good without teeth! Hee hee

 

Loverboy looks for an adopterSo, put this picture in your mind…

…that’s Loverboy watching out the window.

He’s watching and waiting for that car to pull into Cat Depot to take him home.

Bow-Tie yawnsPlease give him a chance.

Special needs cats rule!

 

See you next week.

Bow-Tie,
The Dapper Gent

Foster Care

From the Desk of Shelley Thayer…

Mighty Lou

Mighty Lou is a diabetic cat in loving foster care.  Prior to finding a foster parent for Mighty Lou, his health was difficult to regulate. Since arriving at his foster home, a transformation has occurred. His health is stable, he is making progress by leaps and bounds, literally, and he is happy.

Foster care is a life support for cats like Mighty Lou and others who are currently “learning the ropes” of family life,  through the loving and generous hearts of foster parents.

Please consider helping a cat or kitten this year by providing needed stability during a critical time in their life. Foster parents save lives.
