A sad weekend for me and the NOVA Cat family. After 17 years I had to put my Siamese girl to sleep. She taught me so many things throughout the years. She was abandoned at the clinic because she had ringworm. I feel in love with her instantly and she lived with me ever since then. After she gave my other 5 cats ringworm, I learned how to take care of that fungus. She taught me to always microchip my cats. She got outside and jumped the fence. After 3 sleepless nights, I got her back by pasting signs around the neighborhood. After that experience, I placed microchips in all the cats . At the end, she was having issues with her gastrointestinal tract - vomiting daily and terrible diarrhea. Her ultrasound showed thick intestines so we placed her on steroids. This gave her great quality time although she was very challenging to medicate. At the end, she stopped eating and was hanging her head over the water bowl. As hard as it is to say good bye, it was the right thing to do to end her suffering. We will all miss you Bootie.
Congratulation to Aleister. He is the winner of our Fabulous Feline Photo Contest. We will have more contest throughout the year. In his words: "Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?" We had some amazing entries - Mary Lou Starbranch is a beautiful 2 year tortie Oliver licking his chops after a dental cleaning Gilderoy is very social cat, and by social I mean he likes to sit and watch everyone. He hardly ever partakes but this "man of the house" always knows what's going on. One morning I took this photo of him as he watch me and my roommates eat breakfast.
We had such great entries. I hope everyone had as much fun as we did. Please do not despair if you did not win, we are planning another contest in February. The winner of that contest will get a free dental cleaning for the cat of their choice. The winner will have 1 year to collect their price. So in third place is Joey. Wobbles came in second place Joey loves dressing up for the holidays Wobbles made the perfect stocking stuffer. He is so named because he was born without his back feet! Our grand prize winner is Peaches Peaches is a three year old beauty who enjoys pampering and playing with toys. In this photo she is posing for the world to see how beautiful she is. She was a NOVA Cat Foster and Ellen bottle raised her.

[title size="2"]Gelsey - June Facebook Banner Cat[/title] I named Gelsey after Mikhail Baryshnikov's oft partner Gelsey Kirkland. Gelsey, with her beauty, in my humble opinion, and long legs proved to also be grace embodied. You should have seen her prancing along the narrow rails around my dining room. She and her brother Misha were all of just over 3 ounces when I adopted them from Wendy's Colonial Beach rescue charity. Someone had just dropped them off--fleas and all--when they were barely old enough to leave their mother. Today, they are still best friends but keep slightly different schedules. MIscha is up with the sun and at his post downstairs watching the day begin. Gelsey always stays beside me or in my lap until I get ready for bed at night. Often she prefers to take the midnight watch and gaze out the window at the moonlit comings and goings before retiring with me. She is a terrific huntress. No bug has a chance if she is around. Her favorite game is catching paper balls and she will coming running or play if I tear a piece of paper. She is quite skilled, usually catching them in their paws with a flying leap! Her favorit food is canned grilled salmon. She gets this most nights but suffice it to say that I have been know to share some that did not come from a can with her. She can be very persuasive. At night, as long as she is touching me or Mischa, she drifts right off to sleep and stays with me the entire night.

[title size="2"]Mac - November Fabulous Feline Winner[/title] Mac was born in Pittsburgh and spent the first year of his life in an animal shelter. In April of 2010, my Mom and I went to spend some time with the cats at the shelter, promising each other we would not get one - we just wanted to look! Well, that lasted all of about 3 minutes. I immediately fell in love with the cuddly, friendly, playful, and curious cat that we renamed Mac. (He was named after my obsession with Apple products.) I brought Mac home and opened his carrier, nervous that he would immediately hide. Not out of character, Mac walked in like he owned the place. And not too long after that, he did! He brings so much joy and happiness to our lives that we don't mind having to give him his daily medicine, buying his [...]
