Hello everyone! It is actually our 10th Blogoversary! We sure haven't posted much over the last few years, but we try and stop by if we see that a kitty has crossed over and leave a few words on the blogs.
This is Smokey. He was a foster failure from 13 years ago, when we took in 4 foster kitties who were all very ill. They were about 9 months old when we took them in. It took a long time to get them over their horrible diarrhea, and get their Herpes-1 virus under control. They all had a messy eye on the right side, except for Obi. We are foster failures because we end up falling in love with the kitties and keeping them.
And we have another group of foster failures, where we have 4 more kitties who are now about 2 1/2 years old. We need to update our blog. It is on Maw's list of stuff to do.
Thanks for stopping by! Hugs to all of you!
All of us at Forty Paws.

Today is a very sad day at Forty Paws. G.T. crossed over this morning. This poor guy went through so much in his lifetime. He broke his leg in 2005 as you can see from this picture. He was climbing up onto the top of the china hutch and fell off, breaking his leg. He had horrible allergies for fourteen years, and received allergy serum shots every week, in addition to extra shots at the vet when he would start scratching and ulcerating his skin in various spots on his body. And over the last few months he went into severe kidney failure and was on fluids and also had to be put on Lasix because the fluid would build up around his lungs and cause him to have rapid breathing. Medical intervention throughout this guy's life kept him alive. And he would NOT TAKE PILLS. So everything had to be injected into this kitty. He did fine with injections. But forget about any pills!
He was a happy cat, and loved to eat anything with spaghetti sauce, alfredo sauce, salmon, rotisserie chicken, turkey, shredded cheddar cheese, and certain salad dressings. He was always licking off my plate. Yes, he ate cat food as well as human food... He sat on my lap a good deal of the time, and slept with me as well.
We lost his brother, Dorf, last September when I was at the PSI Pet Sitters Convention. He threw a blood clot and it paralyzed the back end of his body. So he crossed over on September 10, 2015. And now we have lost G.T. on September 4, 2016.
We fostered the entire litter of these cats back in 2000. There were 8 kitties, and they all looked so identical, that we put ribbons on them when they went up for adoption so that people could look at their biographies and see what kind of kitty they were. Both G.T. and Dorf went to the adoption for several weekends, and were not adopted, so we ended up keeping both of them. And we really enjoyed them so much! They were both such great kitties! But they both had serious medical issues for the majority of their lives, and so we wonder how the other 6 kitties did in their homes.
So very sad here at Forty Paws.

We opened our Secret Paws yesterday, on Chrissymouse Day! What a great time we had!!!! You can see by all of the pictures that we were enjoying this nip festival!!! It came all the way from England, and everything was written in German on the packages, but Paw was able to read it because he took German in school!!! So, anyways, we received this totally awesome package from Katzenworld!!!! We are totally impressed with the nip/valerian festival that they sent to us!!! We even love the box!!!!
Here is Dorf smelling the toys in the box!
Madeline joins in on the festivities here.
Madeline is laying in the box, while Misty and Dorf are watching her.
