"Don't you get bored" - The answer

Posted on July 24, 2015 at 4:40 AM Comments comments (0)

I'm often asked when people first arrive and get out of their cat "Don't you get bored out here".  So far I've managed to contain my myrth at this question.  Now let me see.  I'll give you a normal days routine out here and you tell me if I'm likely to get bored.  Crazy, yes.  Exhausted, yes.  Overworked and underpaid, yes.  Bored, you be the judge.

First I attempt to wake up.  Normally pretty uns...

THE BVCR GUARANTEE AT WORK

Posted on April 21, 2015 at 1:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Today Lynx went off to her new forever home with a lovely lady who will provide her with a loving and secure home.  Lynx has been included into the BVCR seniors for seniors program this time around.  Yes I say this time around because Lynx was adopted some years ago to another lovely lady who gave her much love prior to suffering from a stroke 12 months ago.  At that time, her son who lives overseas returned to ensure that his mother was well cared for and...

I REALLY SHOULD KNOW BETTER

Posted on April 16, 2015 at 9:30 PM Comments comments (0)

I received a phone call this morning about a small kitten found at a wrecking yard.  The little tyke only just has it's eyes open and the poor guy who found it really wanted to get it to safety.  So naturally, being the nit that I am, I found myself telling him the address of the shelter so he could bring it over.  There really are times when I need to wear a gag, but oh well what's done is done.  So here I was, faced with this cute (aren't they all) ...

A CONVERSATION WITH CODA

Posted on October 19, 2014 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (0)

This is a conversation I had with little Coda as she sat on my lap looking lovingly into my eyes. Remembering the state she was in when I first saw her I felt obliged to let her know the BVCR philosophy.  Yes people may say that it's silly, but it's something that myself and all of the BVCR directors and volunteers firmly believe.  It went something like this.

WHY NOT LOWER THE ADOPTION FEE

Posted on July 23, 2013 at 4:25 AM Comments comments (3)

People often ask why I don't lower the adoption fee.  Yes I know that the 2 large rescue organisations often have cats available for $20 and $49.  But I guess I have 2 answers to this.

The first is that I'm not looking for fast turnover. What I'm looking for is the "right" home for each cat and kitten. Placing the right cat or kitten in the right home not only secures the future of the cat itself but enhances the lives of it's...

KERRI'S SO SWEET!!!!

Posted on June 28, 2012 at 5:55 AM Comments comments (1)

Oh Kerri my darling what am I going to do with you?.  Now as you can see butter wouldn't melt in her mouth.  She's so cute and loving and adorable.  She's so sweet, so docile, such a darling lap cat.  OK that's it.  I'm about to roll around the floor in hysterics and at my age that's not a good idea.

Kerri is probably around 8 years old and has been at the shelter for about 2 of those years.  She was adopte...

Little Cookie is the cutest little tyke imaginable but she also tends to be a tad accident prone LOL.

For those of you who've followed BVCR for some time you'll recall another certain male kitten with much ...

MISSY'S HOLIDAY CAMP

Posted on October 11, 2010 at 7:36 AM Comments comments (2)

Poor dear Missy.  She's an old style chocolate siamese around 12 years old.  This is her third time staying here while her Dad is off overseas.


Now the first time Missy came to visit she put on quite a turn when Dad left without her. She threated to decapitate me on more than one occasion over the first few days and then claimed the bedroom off the kitchen as her very own.
