Thankful Thursday

We're going to take a break from being playful kittens and be serious for a moment.  We are so thankful to be in a loving home with Mom Paula who spoils us rotten and we have plenty to eat, a warm/cool house and lots of loving.  We are so sad for the kitties out there who have no home.


Mom Paula is so discouraged with the rescue groups in South Carolina (especially where we live).  Sunday night, two black kittens showed up at our house.  They are beautiful house panthers and are very friendly, so it's obvious they've been raised around humans.  Mom Paula couldn't bring them inside because Brulee hasn't had all of her shots yet.  However, Mom Paula put some old towels in a box and opened up her storage building for the kittens and has fed them every day.  The neighbor has been calling people in the neighborhood and no one claims to know who the kittens belong to.  


Mom Paula has called every rescue center/shelter in our area (except for the county pound) and everyone has turned her down.  One rescue organization actually wanted Mom Paula to take the kittens to the vet, get their shots, have them dewormed, get their flea treatment, and have them spayed/neutered before accepting them and then wouldn't guarantee there would be room.  Another rescue group actually wants you to pay a $100 deposit to bring kittens there and leave them.  Mom Paula has been so sad over this.  The kittens are very friendly and have actually slipped inside the neighbor's house when she opened the door.  We think there is a nice lady who wants to take both of them (YES) tomorrow.  She would have taken them today, but it was raining when she came to our neighbor's house and the kittens were hiding.  Please keep your paws crossed these beautiful house panthers will find a forever home quickly.  It's getting cold here!

We'll keep you posted about these little house panthers.

    Hopefully those two beautiful panthers have a home soon! We will all say a prayer

  6. Oh we hope that nice lady gives them a good home! Such sweet little things. Your Momma is doing a very good thing and it is very frustrating to try and find homes--shelters really are overwhelmed but at the same time--we hate it that your Momma feels so bad about this and feels so stuck.

  8. Oh Paula...I am sorry no shelter will take them in, actually the shelters around here is the same...it's almost 6 month to a year for them before they can take any kitty in...because they are no kill shelters...

    I love the first picture so much I just can not stand how they are just TOO PERFECT together...so beautiful and just so great with each other...Praline will be smiling I am sure see them play together!

  9. How sad - it looks like those two babies got dumped and your human and the neighbor have been kind enough to look out for them. I hope the nice lady is able to take the kitties (and that she is, in fact, a nice lady that someone is vouching for!).

  11. We're purring that the nice lady is able to take those black kitties--they are usually the last ones to get adopted at a shelter!

  13. What a wonderful lady that is willing to open her house and heart to those darling little ones! All the shelters and rescue organizations are very cash strapped as their donations are way down because of the economy. One large shelter is very close to closing because of this. They can only hold so many.

    We are purring so hard this all works out for all involved! And thank you again, Mom Paula, for feeding these little beauties and tring to find a home for them! You rock!

  15. Oh Paula, we know just how you feel about the shelters and rescue groups around here. It is so frustrating.But we sure do thank you for taking care of those black panther kittens and we are sending tons of purrs that that lady is going to take them. We would have offered to take them, but we are over loaded here. Anyway, thanks so much for taking care of those two.Take care. Keep us updated.

  16. We just love those two black panther kittens - their fur looks so shiny they must have been in a home before being dumped. We hope the lady doesn't let them down and
    thank you Paula for taking care of them.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  17. We have crossed our paws and have our purrs going that the little house panthers will soon have a home with a nice lady. Our Mom has experienced issues with trying to home strays (both cats & dogs) and been frustrated.

  18. It is so hard when the shelters are full up - and you hate to take them somewhere to have their lives be in danger. We hope that nice lady comes back and these lovely house panthers have a new home for chrismouse!!

  19. Thank you for taking care of the little panthers. It is hard for rescue groups. They are getting ready for big adoptions for Christmas, and people don't want to take in more fosters at this time because they are already full, etc. Maw was with a rescue group, and gave up on it because of the politics in it. Hopefully the neighbor will take in the babies and give them a forever home!

  20. I am so glad you are helping thes elittle panthers and thank you so very very much for trying to get them a home and feeding them in the meantime.

    I will pray that the neighbor will take them both. Poor little babies to be in such a position from their former place of living. I hesitate to call it a home.

  21. First of all, "awwwwww" to the nth degree on the two little fluff balls loving each other in the top photo!

    The little black house panthers look like they'd make very nice pets for someone; we hope the lady can take them.

    We're so glad you've been watching out for the black panthers. Purrs and prayers here.

  22. I am crossing my paws and purring as much as I can for little kitties everywhere who need a home. After all, some of us camed from the streets, like me. And we need more rescuers!!!

  23. I work for a no-kill rescue in another state. Please don't be hard on rescues. We all have a limited amount of money and room. The humans who didn't spay the mother cat and let the kittens loose need to be hit upside the head. I'm thankful Mom Paula is caring for the kittens as best she can. We pray the other lady will adopt them and give them a good home. For everyone: Never bring outside cats inside around your cats until the FeLV and FIV status of the outdoor cats is known.

  27. If it were a purrfect world there would be no need for the rescue places. Unfortunately, that isn't the case and some places are not so good. We can only try and do the best that we can to help where we can.

    Thanks so much for your kind words when Opus, my sweet nephew, had to be helped to the bridge last week. It meant a lot to me and my family to hear from you.

  28. Purrs that those house panthers find a nice place to live. Boo at the shelters, lets go poop on their pillows.

  29. Those are all beautiful cats. I hope they find a good home. Over the years, my human never had success with pet centers. They were always "too full" and never had room. You are so good to find them a home.

  30. Slinky black kitties are VERY good companions! xxoo Bhu

  31. We have the same problem with rescue groups around here. It can be so frustrating!! But we are happy that there is someone to take these beautiful house panthers!! And it was so sweet of Mom Paula to be so concerned about them and take care of them.

  33. As two (former) stray house panthers, we are purrrrrrring hard that your two foundlings get a noo home soonest.

    Dad knows about 'no help' rescues. one time he checked to see if a shelter had room for a couple strays hanging around his door. Not only did they not have room, they tried to give him the name of a V*T who would 'put them down cheap'. UGH!

  34. We are so glad to hear that the little panthers have had someone rescue them. Purrs to your mom for taking care of them until they could be rescued.

    We love that picture of the two of you. It is so sweet. Your mom should definitely have that framed.
