Today we are volunteering with Catz Meow Transport again. We could use lots of purrz and prayerz. First of all, brother accidentally drove over the median at a drive up restaurant window last night and bent the fuel line on our transport car. We are having to rent a car today.
We are helping Bonnie on her journey across Kansas to her mew Mommy in Colorado and then picking up Mama and three kittens to take them to Oklahoma to meet their mew Mommy Angela!!
From The Catz Meow website: The Catz Meow, Inc is an all-volunteer, leg to leg transport service for the safe relocation of cats and kittens in the continental United States.
Using a network of volunteers, and following all state and federal guidelines, we transport cat(s) across the country. Anyone may apply for transport – adopters, rescues, owner reunifications, military moves – anyone who needs to move a cat from one part of the country to another. We bring peace of mind that one’s loved one will be transported with infinite care and will arrive to its forever home safely.
Bonnie’s Story from Catz Meow: Sweet, affectionate Bonnie’s troubles began even before she was born. Her back legs failed to develop correctly so she has born with no feet and has only stubs where her back legs should be. Nonetheless, she manages to get around in her own way. In March 2017, when she was about 1 year old, Bonnie was surrendered to a local vet’s office in Louisiana. The Heart of Louisiana Humane Society stepped in to take financial responsibility for her and place her in foster care. She languished there, waiting in vain for someone to take her home.
Then Bonnie’s luck changed, thanks to TCM’s Share and Care page on Facebook. Terri in Colorado saw Bonnie’s picture, read her story, and fell in love with her. The necessary arrangements have been made and now Bonnie is set to travel to her new family, which includes fellow rescue cats Ollie and Peanut and a 25-pound Flemish giant rabbit named Fred. She’ll finally get the love and attention she deserves.
Yesterday, Bonnie began her journey with a layover at one of the transporter's homes. Brother and I will be meeting Bonnie in Wichita about 1pm and then heading to Salina to hand her over to another driver who is also taking Gracie one of Mama Jewel's kittens to forever homes. Here are some Selfies from yesterday's journey:

Mama and Daughters Journey to Love:
Go West young kitties! Rhonda in Girard, OH took in pregnant Momma. Five kittens later, Rhonda had a lot of placement work ahead of her. The sole male kitten was adopted by a neighbor. Rhonda turned to social media to find homes for Momma and her 4 little girls. Pam in Marysville, WA fell in love with Gracie with the first photo she saw.
Pam helped name all the kittens but she chose a special name for Gracie, naming her after her very dear friend Grace, who lives in Ireland. Gracie will join Pam’s family that includes 3 other kitties; Lily, Jazzy, and Autumn, a dog Tahsa, 3 parakeets; Tikki, Sky, and Sunny, and a dove named Lucy. Gracie will get “all the love she can stand” from Pam and her husband Faron.
Meanwhile, Angela in Davis, OK offered to adopt Momma and the transport planning process began. The remaining 3 kittens had no adoption interest at all so Angela asked if the 3 kittens could be transported to her along with Momma because, “I already love them all from afar!” The rest is history....
This kitty family will travel together until Momma, Gracie, Jewel, Roxie, and Samantha make a stop in Kansas. Then Gracie will continue her journey west and then Momma and three kittens head down to Oklahoma - that's where brother and I come in. Bonnie and Gracie will travel together to Colorado. Brother and I will be picking up Momma, Roxie, Jewel and Samantha and taking them to Oklahoma today.

Will share how things went tomorrow!

Purr. Es. (P.S.) Please pray for Silvia and her kitties. We are struggling to get in enough metal recycling to help her move to a real place to live. Gordo and his litter mates were given chicken bones without Silvia's permission, which caused their sensitive kitties tummies to throw up. Gordo may have hurt a tooth because his eye and nose keep running. Some tummies have settled down, but not completely. The cats have not yet seen the vet.
There was some mis-communication last week
which kept Gordo and the other kitties from having a donation to cover their vet visit. If you call Arapaho Vet Clinic to help, please let them know you are putting credit on the account so Silvia can take her cats in to be checked from a chicken bone incident. Please do not say it is for a payment... the vet office will give you a wrong message. I will call them in the morning to let them know that donations may be coming to help with the check up. Arapahoe Veterinary Clinic: 316 262 6491. Thank you and God Bless you for your purrs and support.
