Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – June 29, 2015

Dear Friends,

It was a big week for this little guy……I went national!

There is a radio show all about animals and they invited me to be on it. It was kind of scary but I said yes because I have an important message to deliver.

Bow Tie has his lady bug for courage

 

My lady bug helped give me courage. She’s always smiling so she makes me happy. I wore my lady bug tie to match her. But, I was so nervous about the show I got the tie on wrong. All of my lady bugs were flying upside down. Uh oh. Better check in the mirror next time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Bow Tie Joins his Mom in the Radio Sound Booth

 

My mom took me into the sound booth. At first it seemed so big and so scary. But then I remembered I was there to deliver a message for all cats. I had to go on there and tell everyone hoarding is very, very bad and not to do it.

So on behalf of all cats who have had a terrible experience like me, as soon as they said “who wants to talk?”

 

 

 

Bow Tie Raises his paw to speak

 

I raised my hand and shouted out “I’ll go first!” (Of course I was speaking cat, so no humans understood.) I got really brave when I remembered it is my job to speak for those who can’t speak.

 

 

 

 

 
Bow Tie Speaks into the microphone

 

I got right up there to that microphone and said “Do not have more cats than you can care for.” We suffer so much when people have so many cats they can’t provide proper care. You better know I told them everything that happens to us in that environment.

 

 

 

 

 

 
Bow Tie speaks on the radio

 

This was my opportunity to speak and I took it. My message was heard! People started asking questions and showing concern. So many of them just didn’t know and don’t understand. But I’m here now, I’ve found my voice, I’ve found my forum and I will work hard. Bow-Tie to the rescue!

 

It was tiring though. The stress of it all wore me out. My message was out there and my work was complete.

 

 

 

 

 

Bow Tie is all tuckered out

 

It was nice to curl up with my lady bug and know I did my job. People know a little more now about hoarding and about how to care for us. Sleep came easy to this young radio star.

See you next week.

Love,
Bow-Tie, The Dapper Gent

Bow-Tie’s Bulletin – June 8, 2015

Dear Whitey and Friends,

Let me just start you out with a test…..

Bow-Tie's Choppers

 

See those choppers?

And see those other choppers?

What’s the difference???

 

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie doesn't have any teeth

 

 

 

​The difference, my friend, is one has teeth and one doesn’t.

 

One guess which is which.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie's Selfie

 

 

I took a selfie to prove my point…………

Took this one hour after I woke up from a three hour induced sleep.

Note the glassy eyes and druggy stare.

 

 

 

They pulled all of my teeth out with the exception of six on the top. What I’m going to do with those, I don’t know. I guess I can gnash some corn on the cob.

When I got home, I was happy but a little unable to control my actions.

 
Bow-Tie and his favorite toy

 

​I ran over to my favorite toy. But once I got it in my mouth I forgot where I was again. I sat there for a long, long time seemingly engaged in a drug induced fixation.

That passed then the next couple of days were filled with soft food and more drugs.

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie says No to Drugs

 

 

 

 

By day three I “Just Said NO”…….
No more meds for me!

 

Tomorrow I’ll go back to the doctor and get my medical release. I have had to lay low here a while until I was declared medically sound to hit the road. I’m excited and I’m thankful you have my back, Whitey.

 

So, here I go……….
Bow-Tie is on the Path

 

I’m on the path.

I see the light before me.

I’m ready to fill the might paws set before me.

Signed a healthy, happy and ready,

Bow-Tie, The Dapper Gent

Hi Whitey and Friends,

I’m still new at this but I’m excited about my weekly blog. This week I’ll tell the story of my final days at Cat Depot. What a great place, huh? We all like it there but it doesn’t compare to a real, furever home.

 

Bow-Tie Fills Out His Adoption Paperwork

 

 

My last day there was a happy one. Wonderful Miss Marianne filled out the paperwork for my adoption. She had a smiley face, didn’t she? I know I always look a little grumpy but that’s because of my folded ear. It makes me look a little crabby, but I’m not.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie is grateful to Dr. Jill Kirk

 

Dr. Kirk was really good to me and helped heal most of my wounds. I’ll tell you, that hoarding environment is brutal on us. In the weeks to come I’ll talk more about it but for now I try not to think about it. Anyway, Dr. Kirk came to give me a final tummy rub. I’m a sucker for a good tummy rub.

Even in my very first days there, I would roll over and welcome a rub. Everyone thought it was so cute. Me?  I just wanted the attention and the loving.

 

 

 

Bow-Tie and his favorite Cat Depot Volunteer, John

 

 

One of my favorite volunteers honored me in a big way. His name is John and he likes to paint. Look at that painting he did of me! It’s fantastic. John came to say his final good-bye, too. Did I mention I also like chin rubs?

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie meets with Terri Gagliardi to discuss his blog

 

Miss Terri wanted to meet with me before I left. She does the blog so she wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing. She approved me taking it over so I have to do a good job. She is really nice so I gave her a nice head butt.

 

By then it was time to go and I was anxious to start my new life.

 

Bow-Tie says goodbye to Buddy

 

Buddy is still waiting for his furever home so I said good-bye and good luck to him.

Did you know I was missing my tail? You can see it here. Yep, I’m missing a tail, an ear and lots of teeth. Oh well, I have a big heart to make up for the missing pieces. (kitty laugh)

 

 

 

 

Bow-Tie said farewell to his friends at Cat Depot and headed home with his mom

 

So there you have my final day at Cat Depot. May all the cats there be as lucky as I am to find a furever home. And may they all drive away into the sunshine and live happy lives. Like me!

Thanks for being my new friends!

Love,
Bow-Tie
