Lost Ragdoll cat survives 5 months

“An exclusively indoor ragdoll cat known more for her placid nature than her hunting skills has defied remarkable odds — surviving five months in the Adelaide Plains after she was reported missing by her distraught Perth owner. “

You may have heard about the Incredible Journey (2 dogs and a cat return home). Now we have the amazing Ragdoll cat, Luna. Her owners had taken her with them on a road trip and in Melbourne, even though Luna was in a harness attached to a barrier, she managed to break free off and got outside through a small gap in the window.

Where there’s a will, there’s a way, when it comes to cats.

Poor Luna ended up starving and dehydrated and ended up in Adelaide, 12 kilometers from where she got out of the car. She was noticed by people at the Dublin Cricket Club in South Australia and someone recognized her as the lost cat, of which “Missing” posters had been put up.

Luna was taken to the Adelaide University’s Companion Animal Health Centre, where she was identified through her microchip.

“I’m very surprised she survived,” said a spokeswoman for the Centre, Diane Whatling.

“Although cats are scavengers, these ragdolls are a very sensitive breed — she may not have even known how to hunt.” Ms Whatling said.

I am so happy that Luna survived and is now reunited with her family, whom I don’t think will be taking her in their car any more. This tale also reminds cat owners to micro-chip their cats, so they can be returned home to be looked after.

Foster & Adoptive parents of Fur-babies

Here is a story of a wonderful woman Nikki who takes in kittens and cares for them until they are well enough to go to adoptive homes.  The video is on Facebook, sorry if you can’t or don’t want to log into FB but this is the only way that I can provide the link to the audio-visual of this amazing story.  Such is sometimes the nature of the internet world !!

.

The story is about 3 little kittens who were abandoned in freezing temperatures but Nikki was alerted to them.  One of the fur-babies nearly succumbed but Nikki tube fed this baby and she (named Bagel) pulled through.   Nikki gives up all kittens to new homes and gives them temporary names so even though these kittens may have been named after foods, of course, those names don’t have to be used by their new carers.

I’m happy to say that all 3 kittens became healthy and were all taken up by good homes.  Nikki has pictures on Instagram (another social media thing that you have to sign up for in order to view the photos).   Nikki’s Instagram page is below.

My Foster Kittens

Our beautiful boy Shandy cat was adopted by us on 1 January 2000 !   A memorable occasion as this sweet boy was a bond between my partner and I and helped us with responsibilities while giving us enjoyment and contentment.  Sadly Shandy passed away in February 2016 after being with us for 16 years, but as one of his adoptive parents I will always miss him.  He has his own Featured Page on this blog, and you can read about his wonderful adventures on several blog posts too, links below.

Help Shady

shady-april-martines

Shady is a 6 year old kitty whom is in need of urgent Veterinary help.  If he does not have surgery soon, he will probably die. However, surgery CAN help Shady.  His “owners” have already spent a fortune on a first operation to save his Life but all that is standing in the way now of operating in order to fix Shady so he can resume a normal life, is the green stuff.

https://www.gofundme.com/saving-shadys-life

If you can DONATE a dollar or five dollars or whatever amount you can, or know someone who can, please do so now by clicking on the Link above.  Seriously, is there even one person out there who is reading this, and will HELP where it counts ??

Shady’s “owners” have already taken out Loans so there’s no need to tell them to get some credit or Loans.  If you have hundreds of dollars or a thousand that is surplus, consider dontaing it to saving an innocent life.  Yes you can donate it to another cause, but if you really feel COMPELLED to help save this sweet little SIX YEAR old cat ( not very old ) …… your doing so  NOW  will be so very much appreciated by beautiful Shady !

Monty Magic

I have fallen in Love …….

with a  Cat !!    Yes, I love Monty Boy, just as much as I still love my beautiful kitty Shandy who sadly passed away on 24 February 2016.   Who wouldn’t love Monty?  He is a little boy, born with a chromosome problem, affecting the bridge of his nose, but fate dealt its hand and he was adopted  by Michael, someone who at that time never dreamed that he would ever have a Cat, let alone fall in love with this Paw-some cat.

Michael & Mikala have an online Etsy shop and sales go toward helping shelter animals.  I have purchased the Fur-ever Calendar and love it.   Will you help too?

https://www.etsy.com/shop/MontyJewelry

Please keep sweeeet Monty Boy Cat in your thoughts / prayers / healing …. as he has trouble at the moment with his kidneys.

I wrote the following poem for Monty Boy.

POEM FOR MONTY

You can follow Monty’s story on Facebook, and the FB videos will show you just how much Monty and Michael love each other.  This love is awe inspiring and touching.  Once you have met Monty Boy, you will never see an animal friend again as “just a pet”.  They are not pets owned by us,   WE  are owned by them, THEY grace us with their joyous, stoic and honest presence.

Thank you Monty Boy Cat.  We love you.

Our beautiful boy Shandy   passed away  on 24 February 2016 at 2.34 pm.

Those who know me well, understand that I believe in a “bigger world” than what there seems.  I believe all Life forms are spiritual beings or sparks of consciousness from the “Divine” or the Source, incarnated into physical forms.

I believe that our Shandy cat was a special Be-ing sent to us, to keep us together and to teach us responsibility and how to Love.  One month has passed now since he departed us, and his messages are still coming in strong.  First of all, let me say that I once experienced a cat that had crossed over, returning in Spirit form, to let us know she was okay and in spirit form.   That was a long time ago, when I began looking into our spiritual essence and connections.  I am positive that Shandy cat will also visit me in Spirit, if I call upon him!

Thank you to Ethan for doing a Card reading for me recently.  “A Message from Heaven” came up which was clearly a message from our beautiful boy, to say “I’m still around, don’t worry.”  On Sunday 27th February I was moping around the house, thinking of course about our beautiful Shandy cat, whom I still miss ALOT and then ….. I felt his loving presence.   Hooray!!

Animals are so amazing.  They truly care about us and worry over the bad energies we pick up from our workplaces, etc. and truly wish for us to be peaceful and happy.  They pick up negative energies from us and this stresses them, or makes them jittery.  Be nice to each other and look after yourself, not just for yourself, but for the sake of your animal friends.

Love your animal companions well, while you can.   If you would like to submit your message about what your Animal friend teaches you, please email me:

thehumanring@gmail.com   and I’ll post you out FREE a

No longer by our Sides, but Forever in our Hearts.

Our best friend,  Shandy

The words in this Video say exactly what I want to say.  Thank you  B.J.

Shandy

Most of all, I miss your awesome loving smile.

We will Meet again one Day !

 

A Tribute to Shandy Cat

IMG_0285

Goodbye to an awesome wise being, our cat friend Shandy.   Shandy our sweeeeet little beautiful furry friend passed away on Wednesday 24 February 2016 at 2.33 pm our time.

Esan & I will miss him and after some time, my grief will heal and his Spirit will carry me on.   Shandy lived with us for 16 years since he was a baby, a gift from Heaven, our Millennium cat whom kept Esan and I together, and taught us responsibility.

His Earthly “tour of duty” is over, but I like to think of him now in Heaven and I told him that I will meet him again one day.   His body just packed up internally and there wasn’t alot that could be done for him to make him comfortable and happy and little chance of a full recovery.  He knew he was ill so we said our Goodbyes.  I played him some music from Lia Scallon’s CD “A Song for the Animals” at our local Veterinarian and that helped.  He went peacefully and we buried him in his garden.
