fundraisers for Fur and Feather

September has been a good month of fundraisers for FFAA. It started with the annual Pie Festival in Pie Town, lots of fun and a successful fundraiser. Denise and I made lots of artsycraftsy things to sell and we got lots of donations. The kids from the Mojave Academy were there to offer help and kept the dogs happy with lots of walks. A good time was had by all!

words of wisdom...

i think sticking to the dream daily
and not being inneruptd
is what art requires
unfortunately we are always being
the artist has to have a strong enough connect
to the story
that thay dont forget...

the nursery rhyme...

Three little kittens they lost their mittens, and they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, we sadly fear that we have lost our mittens."
"What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie."
"Meeow, meeow, meeow, now we shall have no pie."
The three little kittens they found their mittens,
And they began to cry,
"Oh mother dear, see here, see here
For we have found our mittens."
"Put on your mittens, you silly kittens
And you shall have some pie"
"Meeow, meeow, meeow,
Now let us have some pie."
The three little kittens put on their mittens
And soon ate up the pie,
"Oh mother dear, we greatly fear
That we have soiled our mittens."
"What! soiled you mittens, you naughty kittens!"
Then they began to cry, "Meeow, meeow, meeow"
Then they began to sigh.
The three little kittens they washed their mittens
And hung them out to dry,
"Oh mother dear, do you not hear
That we have washed our mittens."
"What! washed your mittens, you are good kittens."
But I smell a rat close by,
"Meeow, meeow, meeow" we smell a rat close by...

3 Little Kittens Studio

Well, well, sure took me long enough to name my art studio and start a blog... but finally, today, it presented itself - 3 Little Kittens Studio.

It all started last Thursday when we trapped the first of the ferals. And now we have momma and all 3 kittens. It wasn't without incident, Shane has the bite wounds to prove it, luckily he's on the mend. The kittens are slowly gaining trust, momma is still very timid, they're all safe in my studio.

This is the first kitten - Hot Rod Robspierre aka Robbie (named after Shane's childhood kitten). He was neutered last Thursday; his 2 siblings make their trip to the vet tomorrow. Momma has to wait till her 10-day rabies quarantine period is up.

We planned to TNR (trap-neuter-release) the family, but it's hard not to get attached. We just want the best for them, momma will probably always be feral. Stay tuned for updates.
