Not A City Girl Any More !

My small space in a big world

Archive for the category “Cats”


Back in February  I sadly had to send Molly over rainbow bride because og Feline Leukemia. She is so missed to this day.


They are inside cats (girls)  and are spaded so I never  thought about them getting Feline Leukemia. Really I didn ‘t know there was a shot to prevent it . I know about dogs and my knowledge about cats has been limited. A feral cat was courting my girls threw the window and managed to convince Molly to sneak out one day.( I have no idea why this cat liked my girls as they are spaded but he did) . Molly spent the night with this cat and returned in the morning. This is I believe how she got sick.
Her best friend Mary Jane had to wait to get the test the vet said. 


So yesterday was the day Mary  Jane was to get her check up and test. She had a negitive test result and her checkup is she is a healthy middle aged kitty. I am so glad that stress is over with. She recived her Feline Leukemia shot and her Rabies shot and all is well for her. We miss Molly so much but in a way Molly ‘ s  life and death educated me on cats and in turned helped me protect Mary Jane.

NYCACC be Accountable for not doing right by the Animals

Every once in awhile I post something about animals that is important to me. This is one of those times. There is a Petition   going around to give New York City a little shove towards doing the right Thing.

I know it is such a shame that you have to give our elected officials and our government departments a shove to do the right thing. This is what we must do so I am trying to help do that.

It is so important to me as I have one of those dogs from NYC as part of my Family. Here she is on her intake photo. She looks so frighten and do you blame her for being so scared? Midnight was going to be killed because she had kennel cough. It is very treatable and more important  it is preventable.


      This is a photo (below) a volunteer took. The volunteer took the time to have her comfortable to take her picture. The VOLUNTEERS are AMAZING at the NYCACC. Thank you guy’s so much for all the care you give to the NYCACC animals. This is the picture I saw on my Facebook in the middle of the night on a To Be Destroyed List on Urgent Part 2 Death Row Dogs.  A Facebook site that post dogs that are not seen by the public. I had this feeling that I needed to give her a home and I am so glad I did. She is so very sweet and smart. I contacted a Rescue in NYC  Social Tees Animal Rescue  and they made it happen for Midnight to become part of my Family. I live in Western NY and Midnight traveled across NY state to find her forever home.

There are so many people out there that are trying to save these animals and yet the NYCACC is suppose to be doing what so many of these caring people do. That is why it is so important to sign thePetition . To make NYCACC and the NYC Department of health accountable for not doing their job and not doing it right. So please sign the Petition and make NYCACC know they need to do their job and do it right. NYC is suppose to be a leader and yet they are so un-evolved when it comes to our pets.

This is Midnight sense she has been with me. All NYCACC wanted to do with her is kill her.

Animal Advocacy

For anyone interested in Animal Advocacy I have started another Blog Paws Abilities 4 Paws . 

It is about our Shelter System that needs change, my view of our shelter systems and of course and always there are pets that need help getting out of that system.

I have a dog (Midnight) now a part of my family that was in that system. If I had not seen her on my Facebook page she would have been killed the next morning. I saw her and welcomed her into my home. This was Midnight when in that system Image

Mary Jane

So this is Mary Jane. When called she will answer to Mary, or Jane or MaryJane. She is a little terror and you wouldn’t think she could cause damage ohh but she can. Her cat pole is all tore up and now I will have to shop for a new one . As you can see she loves boxes. She also loves paper bags.  She is all kitty but with dog mode. I think she has been living with dogs to long as she loves to tease them and chase them and be chased by them. I bought her toys and she does play with them but her most favorite are rubber bands , my hair ties (yes she steals also, I caught her red pawed in my room stealing my hair ties!) The ties to bread and milk bottle caps. She is a little terror but I wouldn’t trade her for anything. She is fun to have around!

So sad

I spend a lot of time on facebook sharing pics of dogs in high kill shelters that need fostering or adoption. One I always do is URGENT2 which is the NYC shelters. I go there because that is where I got Midnight from. I work and sign petitions, send letters to try and change the killing of perfectly great dogs. Tonight was sad because all the dogs threads were quite . Those dogs will be PTS tomorrow morning . I just can’t get the fact as Americans how we can do this on a daily basis to these animals.(that includes Cats and Rabbits etc…)We have taken a step back making horse slaughter legal again. We Americans are not all that we think we are. We have not evolved all that much. Tonight I go to sleep so sad for trying to save those dogs know they will be PTS in the morning. This is my opinion !

The cats have recovered from the Midnight Terror

When I first brought Midnight home the first thing she did was jump into the turtle tank! The second thing she did was terrorize the cats. The cats started to hide in the bathroom until night came and they knew Midnight would be shut in my room. So I had to start Midnights Kitty social skills.  She  has done well and now Molly is out doing what Molly does best
