Transport Day: 7 Cats With Homes in 5 Different States! #7catcaravan

Hurray for transport day! This weekend we're heading up the entire east coast and dropping a whole bunch of kitties off all along the way!

Let's meet each one of them and get to know them, shall we?


Fiona was rescued from Broward Animal Control with her babies. They were all very sick, and unfortunately her babies did not make it, despite tons of care from their foster mom, Cutehead Rita A. Fiona, however, she came through like a champ. There were a couple times where Rita thought Fiona might not make it, but both of them are fighters, and she pulled through!

Now she is a gorgeous girl who got her lucky break thanks to a connection between fellow Cutehead Robin O. of Covered in Cat Hair and her friend Birgit F. in Jacksonville, FL. Birgit had messaged her about adopting a kitty and Robin pointed her our way... and the rest is history. Fiona is a lucky girl!

Fabulous Fiona! 

Charlie was dumped at a vet's office in Fort Lauderdale, FL. He tested positive for both FIV and Feline Leukemia, and the person requested he be put down. But Charlie is such a sweet cat that the vet just didn't have the heart to do it. So when Cutehead Maribel M. walked in to the office and the vet led her back to meet "someone special"... she of course immediately fell in love with him, and agreed with the vet's decision.

Enter Rikki's Refuge, a wonderful place in Virginia. They agreed to take Charlie in and hopefully find him a home. And if not, they will love him for life. He is a special boy!

Cute and sweet Charlie.
Pepper was originally rescued with his sister, Cocoa, from Broward Animal Control a few months ago. Poor Cocoa got sick and did not make it, but Pepper grew big and strong -- and super sweet! Pepper's foster mom says he is one of the sweetest cats she's ever fostered!

He was supposed to head up on a previous transport last month, but was a little sick, so we held him back to be safe. Today he is ready to hit the road with the rest of the herd and go to his new mom, Cutehead Lin F. in Virginia!

Snuggly Pepper!

Batgirl was dumped at my dad's office building parking lot. There was a cat there that he'd been feeding for years, and we think someone just thought it would be "okay" to put a kitten there also. As if this baby would be fine because the other cat was. Not true!

My fabulous dad jumped into action, got a trap and got the little black baby safe. One look at her and we knew her name was Batgirl. Look at the size of those ears! She has been in foster with a coworker of his, Cutehead Ashlea M., and now she gets to head up to her new mom, Meredith D. in New Jersey!

Batgirl, complete with batcave (it's going with her on the transport!).

Freeda was rescued from Hillsborough County Animal Services in Tampa, FL. Her time was just about up, and she was saved at the very last minute! She is a gorgeous sweetheart, who got the gift of a second chance at life just in the nick of time!

Cuteheads Maribel M. and Kd P. worked together to pull this one off, and her new mom, Patty P. in New Hampshire is the amazing person who made it all happen! Freeda truly had no time left, and now she has all the time in the world!

Pretty Freeda.
Frita and Sweet Pea

Frita was part of the Ginger Nuggets that we transported to HART of Maine a while back. She was a little sick then, and not ready to travel yet, so we held her back until the next transport.

While she was getting healthy, she happened to become best friends with another kitty who was sick at the time (Sweet Pea nearly died and was forcefed for two weeks till she got better), and the two of them got healthy together -- and got to be BFF 4 Ever! And so when it came time for Frita to head up to HART, we just couldn't let her go without Sweet Pea... so Sweet Pea is hitching a ride too and the two of them are going together!

Frita and Sweet Pea, BFF.

Silly Sheep Boops a Bull

This sheep is determined to teach his friend the bull how to headbutt, but the bull isn't really playing along. So what we get instead is the cutest series of boops -- complete with lots of backwards walking wind-up.

I can't decide if the booping part is the cutest or the way the little sheep's back legs move when he backs up. Boop!

Thanks to Cheezburger for the find!

We All Know Who's the Boss Here...

Three big dogs know when to stand up and when to get out of the way.

For the boss, of course.

Just a little quick, random sillyness for your day! Enjoy!

Otter Plays with a Rock

Pure and simple happiness. Watching this otter play with his rock just makes me smile, because he's just getting so much joy and having so much fun with so little.

If only we could all find such pleasure in little things in life. This rock is the best thing ever!

P.S. I love his face right around 2:00. So sweet!

Two Cats Tuesday: Pimp and Moo on the Bed... Together!

Happy Two Cats Tuesday, Cuteheads! Today Pimp and Moo got busted again doing something they rarely ever do -- they were actually lying on the bed together!

Well, I don't know if they were exactly together, but they were at least on the bed at the same time... which is still huge!

They both sleep on the bed with me at night, but during the day when I'm not in the bed, they are never ever there together. So this was something worth capturing the moment with a picture!

We are only about a cat-length apart! (Click to biggify if you want.)
A little bit before this picture was taken, the fire alarm went off in our building, and both the boys got a little freaked out (of course!). I quickly scooped them both up when I heard it because if one of them got under the bed, we'd probably all burn here while I tried to beg him to come out from under the bed. No way they'd come out with all that racket!

So when I heard it, I grabbed them. It stopped right away, so it was nothing, and I put them on the bed. I guess they didn't want to move after that, so they stayed put for about an hour. Amazing!

Fat Cat vs. Wall of Dominoes

This isn't Shammy the cat's first time at the dominoes rodeo. She's an expert at knocking them down, and she's done it before.

Shammy comes to visit every now and then (she is this guy's sister's cat), and when she does, the two of them like to have their fun by setting up elaborate dominoes mazes and contraptions and then watching them all fall down. Of course a kitty would love this!

P.S. The Cheese Kittens from the #CheeseCatsCaravan transport this weekend made it home safely! Here they are at Cutehead Robin B.'s house in Texas!

Let the shenanigans begin!
