Transport Saturday: Pretty Mommas, Fluffy Kittens and a Handsome Cow Cat! #11cattransport

It's transport day again! This time we have a pretty pregnant momma, a litter of prissy, floofy kittens, a sweet ginger family, a few cute kittens and a handsome man-cat -- all heading up to Forever Home Feline Ranch in Springfield, Illinois!

Let me show you the Prissy Ts first. We are calling them that because they all have prissy little names that start with T! And they are gorgeous!

These girls were rescued from Broward Animal Control in Pompano, FL. They are lucky girls who are going to find the best forever homes, I just know it! One of them, Tally, already has an adopter waiting for her up there!

The Prissy Ts: Tabitha, Tally, Tessa and Trudy.
Then we have Momma Misty. She's a pregnant lady who is one of the cats we got from the hoarder situation in Tampa a few weeks back. She was supposed to have been spayed... but you can see how that didn't happen. We she got down here, I took one look at her and said, "That cat's pregnant!"

Luckily for Misty and her future brood, the Ranch said they'd take her and love her and her upcoming babies -- and find them all homes when they are ready! What a lucky girl.

Momma Misty. 
Up next next we have Tangerine and Mandarin, a mom and baby family that were also rescued from animal control. They had mange when they were at the shelter and got lots of love and care at their foster home, and now they are ready to find real forever homes! And so they're coming along!

Tangerine and Mandarin!

Next up is a three-kitten family that are just too darn cute! Dixie, Eden and Blake (his picture is not here) are little cuddlebugs that also got their ticket to the Ranch!

And last, but definitely not least, we have Roman! He is coming from a small shelter in Georgia. Cutehead (and frequent driver and sleepover spot!) Laura N. fell in love with him when she met him at the shelter, but couldn't take him in herself. He ended up on the urgents list and his time was almost up, so we asked the Ranch... and those angels said he could come along too! Hurray for Roman!

Don't you just want to plant a smooch on Roman's face?
This makes 97 cats we've helped transport so far in 2013!

Follow Along!
You can follow along with their transport today and tomorrow on Your Daily Cute's Facebook page and on Twitter using the hashtag #11cattransport. I'll be tweeting as @YourDailyCute, of course! Help us cheer these kitties on!

We kick off at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow!

Tremendous Thank You!
These cats are all safe and headed home thanks to some amazing work by many amazing people. We couldn't do any of it without our super partner in rescue, Stacey of Good Karma Pet Rescue of South Florida. Our fabulous fosters: Cuteheads Maraly and Bob W., Carie P., Beth H. and condo babysitter, Colleen! An incredible amount of gratitude is owed to our amazing vet, Dr. Seskus of East Oakland Animal Hospital.

And huge thanks to all our Cutehead drivers! YOU all make this possible. Lisa B., Dotty C., Dana K., Joni C., Laura N. (also the sleepover spot!), Tia and Helen, Laura and Cindy, and Brenda B. (who is also the Ranch's president!). What a wonderful group!

And best of all, thanks to Forever Home Feline Ranch for making it so we can save these cats by giving all these kitties their cowboy hats and welcoming them to the Ranch!

Cat vs. Crazy Cat in the Mirror

In this epic battle of cat vs. cat in the mirror, we see fur-fuzzing, back-arching, twist-hopping, side-crawling and more!

How will it end? Who will back down first... the kitty on our side or the kitty in the mirror?

Cat Drinks From Sink and Dries Her Face With a Towel

Bianca likes to drink from the sink like most kitties, but she does not like her face to stay wet after she's done under the faucet -- so she uses the bathroom towel to dry off her face!

So now this house needs hand towels and paw towels, apparently. Which I'd take over what my kitty does, any day. He just shakes his head and gets the water all over the bathroom mirror. I wonder how I can teach him to use a towel!

P.S. BlogPaws kicks off today! Last night I went out to dinner with a bunch of cat blogger friends, and had a blast! I'm looking forward to kicking things off today, and of course, am hugely thankful to Purina for sponsoring my trip here!

Here is me and Disco from Curlz and Swirlz
I'll post more pictures during the day and weekend on the Cute's Facebook page. I bet I'll get to meet lots of cute kitties and doggies here!

Amazing Cat Opens Five Doors to Get Outside!

When a cat is determined, a cat is determined. This crazy cat opens five different doors on her mission to get outside.

Door and handles are nothing for this kitty. She knows her way around the house, and nothing -- especially not a door! -- is going to stand in her way of getting some fresh air.

NOTE FROM CUTE: Of course I do not think kitties should be outside, but this was too silly not to share!

P.S. I'm heading off to BlogPaws today! It officially starts tomorrow, but I'm getting in a day early to rest and relax and be all rested up for the big few days. I love BlogPaws every year! It's like a big blogger buddy reunion. And this year, the fab folks at Purina are sponsoring me to go! So that makes it even better. We do like them here at Cute. :)

Two Cats Tuesday: Moo's Fake Box

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today Moo has a new box (you know how he loves boxes!). But just between you and me, let's not tell him that this isn't really a box, OK?

This is a mighty fine box!
Wait. Holdonaminute. What are you saying?
This isn't a real box?! What do you mean?
Seems like a box to me!
This is a cardboard square thing that came inside one of those big under-the-bed Rubbermaid boxes. I took it out and just knew Moo would get in it and act like it was a box!

Who cares that it doesn't have a bottom? It's close enough for Moo!

Mittens the Cat is Best Friends with an Alpaca

Mittens the cat has a best buddy, and won't leave her alone for even one second. Sweet Lacey the alpaca is just trying to get a little snack in, but Mittens is determined to love on her and demand attention instead!

Can an alpaca eat in peace?! Sheesh!

BONUS CUTE: The march of the alpacas!

P.S. All the kitties from the #15catcaravan transport this weekend made it home safe last night! Buddy stayed in Richmond, Suki went to her new daddy in Edison, NJ, Bella is with her new mom in South Kingstown, RI and the rest of the cats and kittens are all safe and sound at HART of Maine rescue in Maine! Thanks to everyone who helped and to all of you for cheering us on! I'll post more pictures on Facebook soon!

Happy Mother's Day! (And an Last-Minute Transport Request for a Momma Kitty!)

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there -- of both human and furry children!

I don't think Pimp and Moo got me anything for Mother's Day today, but I'm sure they'll each cook up a nice gift in the litter box later at least...

My two sons, Moo and Pimp!
I'm going out to dinner later today with my mom and grandmom and the family, so we're doing the human Mother's Day, too. I might be a little biased, but I think I have the best mom! 

My mom and I! Aren't we cute?

We have a momma kitty that we need to get up to Forever Home Feline Ranch in Springfield, IL next weekend. She is one of the hoarder kitties we brought back down from Tampa, and we had no idea she was pregnant until she go here. She was supposed to have been spayed up there... but clearly she wasn't. Argh. Bad hoarder!

Luckily, our good friends at Forever Home Feline Ranch said they would take her in preggers and give both her and her babies the chance they deserve. Thing is, we need to get her up there ASAP. Our vet thinks she is not going to pop just yet, but it could be soon, so we want to get her up there next weekend.

We need a couple legs filled. If you're in these areas and can help, please fill out our transport form. Thank you so much! Please share!

Saturday, May 18
Lake City, FL to Valdosta, GA
Orlando, FL to Gainesville, FL
