8/21/2013 [13-Smokey] Smokey
Maine Coon X, gray/white tabby, Male, 3 months
Smokey and his brother Rig were born in the dirt in the cold, dark dampness under a mobile home. They didn't get anything special to eat nor did their mother while she was pregnant or nursing them. Smokey and his litter mates never came out during the day so, in order to catch them, their foster mom had to live trap them very early in the a.m. These poor kittens were dirty, skinny, starved and smelled of urine. She brought them home, gave them a bath, cleaned their ears and started them a very healthy diet (including scrambled eggs!). Within only a few days, they put weight on and were the size they should be for their age. In the beginning, as expected, they were very frightened of their foster mom and would hiss at her but little by little, they learned to trust. Now, they sleep on her lap while she works on the computer! Smokey has not been around dogs but does get along well with the other cats in the household. Also, there are no children in the foster home so we are thinking Smokey will do best in a home with older, quieter, respectful kids. He is used to normal household noises, like the vacuum, TV, Radio, and dishes rattling in the kitchen. Smokey has been trained to know what the words, "play nice, no-no, don't bite and get down" mean. He also enjoys being hugged, sleeping on laps and getting kissed on the cheek. Our veterinarian was amazed at what a big kitten Smokey was weighing in at 4 lbs. at 12 weeks of age - with his heavy bone structure, tufts of hair in the ears, markings and coat - she definitely believes Smokey to have some Maine Coon in him and predicts he will be a very large full grown cat. Litter trained, up to date on shots, wormed and microchipped - Smokey was NOT neutered as he had one testicle that was "shy" and we are waiting for him to mature to see if it will drop down. Smokey's start in life was not great but he is now a well adjusted, healthy, active playful kitten who just wants to be loved and cherished. What more could any kitty ask?
7/17/2013 [13-Frostbite] Frostbite
DSH, white, Female, 5 Mo
Sweet little Frostbite came to us as a thin, cold little kitten. Believe it or not, she was found frozen to a truck bumper. That is correct ... FROZEN! It was a cold April night and we believe she crawled up onto the bumper to get near the warm engine and as it cooled, she became stuck to the metal. Big thanks to the kind samaritan who found her and rescued this cutie! Due to this experience, Frostbite developed an upper respiratory infection compounded by herpes of her right eye. She is doing great now and her herpes is under control - we have information about this and can share in more detail to the interested adopter (this is why she has two different colored eyes!). Frostbite's best friend in the whole world is Sookie! They truly look like sisters and love each other like family but Frostbite is about a month older than her little twin "sister". These two play, eat and sleep together and are so hilarious to watch - who needs TV? We would love it if these two could find a home together but it is not mandatory by any means. Frostbite is litter box trained, feline leukemia/FIV negative, wormed and up to date on shots. She is not spayed yet as stress can be a trigger for herpes and since Frostbite is doing so well, we do not want to tempt fate. Our vet feels she should be altered when she is about 8 months old and has had time to settle into her new home and life. Rimrock will then work with the adopter to assist in getting her spayed. Frostbite is sure to brighten anyone's day with her constant purring and stunning white coat - how about a little feline sunshine in your life?
