Happy Valentine's Day!

Gus:  The, I mean I mean students wanted to wish you all a Happy Valentine's Day with some photos.  I decided to show them how it's done. 

Wait!  That's my sexy pose.  That's not suppose to be in here.

OK.  That photo is better for students to see!  Now here are the students' photos.

Happy Valentine's Day!
We love you!

Kitten Cribs

Welcome to this edition of Kitten Cribs!  Ever wonder how the rich and famous kittens* live?  Join us as we tour the home of the cast of I Love Kittens.

Lucy, Ethel and Fred live in a four story townhouse in the suburbs of Kansas City.

There are five bedrooms

Three living areas.

Two dining areas.

And two bathrooms.

The bottom level also serves as a play room.  When these kittens aren't on set of their wildly popular show** you will find them chillin in their crib!

*These kittens aren't rich or famous.
**Their show isn't wildly popular because there isn't a show.


Update on our commentathon!
We had 28 people comment during our commentathon.  We are going to round that up and donate $30 to Great Plains SPCA's Foster Program.  Thank you to everyone that commented!

Super Sunday Selfies

Gus:  Whatever kind of bowl you like (super, kitten, puppy, food), today is your day!  To celebrate, the minions students have taken some super kitten selfies!

We think the day after all these bowl games should be a holiday in the US.  What do you think?

Grief and Foster Kittens

Gus:  It is with great sadness that we have to tell you of the passing of little Ricky.  Ricky went down hill very quickly.  He was rushed to the vet Thursday morning and Friday afternoon the decision was made to humanely euthanize him.  The Mama was there with him in his final moments.

We'd like to say that it gets easier each time we lose a student but that just isn't the case.  Even though we may have only known these kittens a few days, we still grieve them.  As soon as they walk through the door, we fall in love with them.  It is ok to shed a tear or two or ten thousand for them.

Part of the grieving process includes asking what we could have done differently.  Most of the time, there isn't anything else that can be done.    These little lives are very fragile and they are often exposed to awful things before they ever come into your care.

The important thing is to remember is that they were loved until the very end and that someone was there for them in their darkest moments.  They also now have someone to wait for at the Rainbow Bridge.  Someday, when the Mama goes to heaven they will be waiting there for her.  She will hug them and kiss them and all of us will go to heaven together.

Selfies with Santa

Gus:  The Mama has really been slacking!  She hasn't even introduced you to the Caribbean kittens yet.  They've been with us since mid-October.  I think they had every parasite possible when we first got them - coccidia, giardia, tape warms.  Yuck!  Unfortunately, we lost 3 of the kittens.  Their small bodies just couldn't handle all those foreign invaders.  Five kittens are still with us as well as their mom.  The kittens went to visit Santa today. They wanted to share their selfies with Santa with you.






Do you know what all the kittens asked Santa for Christmas?  A loving home!  They will be available for adoption at Great Plains SPCA's Merriam campus in a couple weeks.
