08/25/2017 – Pre-Weekend Update


Sweet Teese is scheduled to be accepted into our local No-Kill shelter early next week. Once they heard she was spayed and was in great health, the shelter manager put Teese on their move-in list. More news as it becomes available. THANK YOU ALL for your good thoughts and wishes toward getting sweet Teese into a safer environment. Keep those good thoughts coming that she find a perfect forever home soon!

Sweet Teese, the cat who is not ours, went for a vet visit yesterday, just for an all around checkup and to get a clean bill of health in the chance someone, anyone, decides they need a forever cat. There we learned Teese is a spayed GIRL CAT, not a boy cat. See? The name “Teese” really fits now, doesn’t it?

She doesn’t have a microchip (so, sadly, we can’t harass the person who abandoned her… KIDDING, not kidding) and our vet said she was in remarkably great health for living outside with the raccoons since last December. She’s between 2 and 3 years old with beautiful teeth, is FeLV/FIV negative, and is now current with all her vaccines.

We are trying very hard to give her the best chance for a permanent adoption and are feeling a bit disheartened that the No-Kill shelter we love is unable to house her due to space constraints (please see BREAKING NEWS above for a change).

Because we here are at our maximum limit and absolutely cannot bring her inside, she is back outside, staying under a neighbor’s back porch with that raccoon Patches and her babies, probably because of the warmth and to keep a certain other neighborhood cat from picking on her. Teese is a lover, not a fighter, as is evident by a large scratch now across her nose as of early this morning.

Last Friday, we mentioned all the vet trips we were in the middle of with three of the Colehaus ginger girls, plus Ruby. We’re not quite done, but close.

Ruby is back to eating just fine, again. We never discovered the cause of her stomach aliment (Mom still thinks it was an eaten spider), and we’re happy to report she’s gained back the pound and a half she lost.

Sunny’s cough ended within hours of us posting here about it which was about the same time a weather front blew through and waved all that Canadian wildfire smoke away. She didn’t have to go back to the vet after all. However, we’re expecting more wildfire smoke here Sunday through next Wednesday. We’ll close up all our open windows and will keep an eye, and ear, open for any returning cough.

Miss Newton went back for her blood pressure recheck… only to not get a good enough reading to count. She goes back this weekend for another recheck. She wishes you all to know she is not happy about this in the least, AND that Mom hasn’t used her photo for a puzzle in like, for-evah!

Here’s that online jigsaw puzzle of the photo above… before someone forgets. Again.

Zuzu’s scaly back and ears have cleared up beautifully after a couple weeks of Clavamox and ear drops, both of which she took like a pro and didn’t complain a single time. Honestly, how did we get so lucky to have this loving girl be a part of our family?

Other than Miss Newton’s bp recheck, our weekend plans include working on feral shelter and electric outlet improvements because now, when the temperatures are warm, is the time to do that, not when it’s forty degrees (F) and blustery out there. Right, Mom?

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. We really hope someone adopts Teese very soon. It must be very hard to go back to outside life when you once had a home.

  2. Oh Teese, you are a beautiful girl. How could someone abandon you?

  3. Teese is absolutely gorgeous! Sure hope she can find her forever home soon. Thank you for taking such good care of her in the meantime!

  4. Tesse, we are purring hard for you sweetie, stay safe!

  5. sweet Teese, my heart just breaks reading this. Glad everyone is doing well though!

  6. I would SO harass the former owner of Teese…not kidding! I know you will do everything you can for her. Glad to hear about: Ruby, Zuzu, and Sunny. Miss Newton, hoping that BP check turns out excellently, and I’ll play jigsaw puzzle later today with your beautiful image. Eastside Cats is also working on cat shelters this weekend, as well as visiting with relatives who are in from out of town. Enjoy!

  7. Good luck finding pretty Teese a furever home. Continued healthy wishes to
    Ruby, Zuzu and Sunny. Miss Newton good luck on the next bp check
    Hugs madi your bfff

  8. Thanks for the update little one. We’re hoping everything becomes 100% top notch very, very soon <3 And wishing the best for a furever home <3 <3 (=^.^=)

  9. Would the shelter be willing to put up a listing on their website in case someone might be interested?

    • The local no-kill shelter is going through some changes at the moment and all requests are on hold. We’ll post any and all change to Teese’s situation and in the meantime, we’re accepting all offers of good thoughts toward her finding a perfect forever home!

  10. That is great that Teese got such a great checkup! I really would love to see someone give her a home.

  12. We wish beautiful Teese had not had to return to outside. Can you get on a waiting-list for placement in the no-kill shelter. We think it is amazing that she is friendly with the raccoons. They usually aren’t so friendly. Glad all the vet visits, except for the BP check for Miss Newton are out of the way. She definitely has a sour puss expression.

  13. We cross our paws that Teese finds a forever home, and we’re glad she had such a good checkup. Purrs

  14. Poor Teese! I want to use a lot of very inappropriate words about the person who let her go. She sounds a lot like Ellie – and it boggles my mind how anyone could do that. Luckily, Ellie’s microchip was also registered to the rescue that fostered her as a kitten – so they took her in again until I fell in love with her. I can’t imagine your heartbreak at not being able to take Teese in … hopefully she’ll find a good home soon.
    Your ginger girls are truly special!
    ps – Bear lived on the street and when I fell in love with him, I was sure he was a girl. Took the vet shaving his belly for an ultrasound (she was convinced “she” was pregnant) … to find out that OOPS! He’s a boy. SURPRISE!

  15. That’s great news about Teese! We purr that she finds a new home real fast! Glad to hear everybuddy else is doing well…’specially Ruby.

  16. We all think Teese looks and acts so much like Hemingway. Mom always says he’s such a big ball of fur love. How could anyone abandon such a beautiful kitty as Teese? We all hope and pray she finds just the right furever home. We’re also jumping for joy that the vet visits turned out good. We love reading about everyone out there.
    Stereo purrs……….Hemingway and Steinbeck

  17. I am happy to see so much good news- and a puzzle too 🙂

    Hooray for Teese! And thank you for giving her the chance she so deserves. 🙂

    We are glad everyone is doing well after their checkups. And we hope Miss Newton’s new BP reading went better this weekend!
