It's Transport Day: 4 "Cheese" Kittens Heading to Texas! #CheeseCatsCaravan

Yay! It's transport day again! This weekend we have four adorable kittens on the road with us -- all named after cheese!

Brie, Blue, Cheddar and Gorgonzola were found by Cutehead Donna D. with their mom, Princess Izzy. She took them all in and decided to keep Izzy, but couldn't keep all her kittens. After a long search all over to find a rescue to take them, fellow Cutehead Robin B. stepped up to take the babies in and help them find their forever homes!

Only one thing... Robin lives in San Antonio, Texas -- so they asked if we could help! And, of course, Cuteheads are happy to come to the rescue and help give some pretty kitties a ride!

Meet the Cheese Kittens and their mom, Izzy!
We are cheeeeeeese if you pleeeeease...

It was a couple weeks of working hard to find all their drivers, but we are officially on the road today!

And then, guess what? When it got around that we were going this route, it turns out a pretty black kitty named Daisy needed a ride along the same route... so she is hitchhiking with the Cheese Kittens! We are driving Miss Daisy!

Daisy is going to her forever home about an hour east of Montgomery, AL. She is a lucky girl!

Daisy was saved from Gaston Animal Control!

Help Future Transports!
Want to help transport rescue kitties in the future? Sign up to be one of our volunteer drivers by filling out this form so we can contact you if a cat needs to go through your area! The more drivers we have, the more cats we can help! Thank you all!

Tremendous Thank You!
Huge thanks for Donna D. (@TigerBoyTheCat) for rescuing this precious family and everyone who donated for their vet care and boarding, especially Dana M. (@danapixie on Twitter!) for helping coordinate and round up drivers!

And huge thanks to all our Cutehead drivers! YOU all make this possible. Carol G. (@Gabby_da_Tabby), Terry F. (@brian106sc), Tia R., Donna H., Karla M., Caroline F., Laura P. and Vivian P. (vivian_perkins)! And super huge thanks to Cutehead Jan H. for hosting the sleepover Saturday night!

And the biggest thanks of all to the new moms and caretakers: Robin B. (@CheshireK) for taking the Cheese Kittens and Sherry O. for adopting Daisy!

P.S. The Cheese Kittens are going to be ready for adoption soon if anyone is interested! Let me know and I'll put you in touch with Robin!

P.P.S. You may also see the hashtag #DashMemorialRescueRun along with this one on our trip. A great Twitter friend for many years, who helped and shared and supported so many kitties in need, was shockingly killed by two dogs this week. @DashKitten was a friend to many, and a longtime friend of Cute. One of our drivers, Brian F., had the idea to dedicate his leg of this transport to Dash, and I thought that was a wonderful gesture -- so I said I'd tweet using that hashtag also. Our hearts go out to Dash's mom, Marjorie (@whskr), at this sad time. Hopefully these kittens we are transporting will have long, happy, wonderful lives in his memory!

Ferocious Kitten vs. Innocent Pit Bull

After seeing this video, I am convinced we should all write to our senators right away demanding that kittens be banned from your state! They are ferocious and evil and can attack without a moment's notice. And the poor innocent victims, like this defenseless, harmless pit bull, just don't stand a chance.

Kittens are just too dangerous to be kept as pets. Don't you think?

P.S. We officially have all our drivers for this weekend's transport! Momma Izzy is so happy her babies will be able to get their ride home! She is staying put with their rescuer, and the babies are off to Texas from North Carolina!

Yay! Me and my brothers are going on a Cutehead road trip!

Cute Kitten Ear Wiggles (and a Transport Need!)

Synchronized Ear Wiggles is one sport this adorable bunch of tabbies would surely excel in!

When they belly up to the milk bar, they are so happy with their meal that their little ears just start dancing... all of them!

P.S. We have a transport this weekend and we just need TWO legs filled! Is anyone in or near these areas? Can you help? If so, please fill out our volunteer driver form! If not, please share with your friends in case they know someone!

There are 5 kittens heading home. Two carriers, so they fit in any car!

These are the legs we need:

3:50pm - 5:30pm: Auburn, AL to Greenville, AL
5:45pm - 7:45pm: Greenville, AL to Mobile, AL

These four kittens (they are the Cheese Kittens, all named after cheeses!) need to get home. Mom is staying with the rescuer. Can you help drive them?

Can you help drive us for a couple hours Saturday, please?

Cat vs. Soda Can (and an Update on Sweet Pea, My Parking Lot Kitty)

Empty soda cans should not be left on the table, and this cat is going to make sure that's how it is -- no matter how many times the silly human puts it back on the table. Will he ever learn? Sheesh!

Or maybe he's teaching his human to fetch. In that case, well done, kitty! Looks like it's working!

NOTE FROM CUTE: Many of you probably saw on Facebook Sunday that we had to take my favorite parking lot kitty, Sweet Pea, to the vet. When I went to go feed them that day, it took a while for her to come out, and when I did finally see her I knew immediately something was wrong.

Her back paw was very swollen and she wasn't putting any weight on it. She was walking with a horrible limp, and there was a gash scratch across her nose. Oh no!

Click to biggify and see her paw better.
I immediately called her other parking lot mommy, Kelly, and she came right over with a carrier and we scooped Pea up and put her in. She stayed overnight at Kelly's and yesterday she went straight to the vet in the morning. We had to make sure she got all the care she needed!

We don't know exactly what happened to her, and the vet couldn't tell either. It's possible it was a bite. There are huge dinosaur-sized iguanas that hang out near the bushes where she does. Or maybe a raccoon, but we highly doubt that because they get all get along just fine, and always have.

Sweet Pea got some medicine to thrwart off whatever is causing the swelling and I'm working on a temporary foster while she heals. She can't go back in the parking lot like that. She needs to be able to run if needed and be fast and not hurt. Paws crossed she heals quickly. It breaks my heart to see her like this, and hurts me to know that something hurt her.

Here is a video of me petting her. She is the sweetest girl! You can hear her purr some, too, in it.

Her vet bill was several hundred dollars (whew!), but she's worth it. We got all bloodwork and testing and everything done, since she was there.

I will keep everyone posted on how she is doing. She is my FAVORITE parking lot kitty right now. She has to get better!

Siamese Cat Won't Leave Dog Alone

Relentless. This cat is relentless!

No matter where this poor doggie is -- the couch, the bed, the floor, just walking around tail-wagging -- no place is safe from the onslaught of Siamese sneak attacks! From the air or on the ground, this kitten takes her being-annoyingness very seriously.

Thanks to Cute's friend, Guido the cat, for sharing this on Facebook!

Cute Kitten Loves to Dance

Pavel the kitten was named after the Pavlova, the famous ballerina -- so it must have been destiny that he turned out to be such a gifted and enthusiastic dancer!

Clearly his wallflower brother in the background did not inherit the same gene.
