CUTE Kitten Ready for Adoption
On Monday, Dr. Liz Wynn came in to give Afton’s special foster kitten the next round of vaccinations and a clean bill of health so that she can be adopted. She absolutely LOVES to be held. You can’t put her down because she freaks out and leaps back into your arms so she is going to make a really wonderful pet for someone who can be with her all the time.
If you are interested in adopting her, message Karma or Afton:

Another hot day today but still productive!
Thank you to everyone that came in to help. It was greatly appreciated and allowed us to get some projects done after lunch. Sign-offs were done for feeding and cleaning. MC did food prep before lunch and covered the radio while I was in the staff meeting. Bridget helped her finish the last few diets and clean up.
Bridget, Bethany, Fred, Abbey, and Cassidy cleaned the two empty enclosures next to Nabisco. I patched up the lockout on the Enclosure not attached to Nabisco.
Thank you to the ladies who covered the Gift Shop today, everything seemed to go well and they covered all of the tours, private and 3 PM
That’s it from me!

Kristine’s Bobcat Rehab Overnight Kitten Report
FLINT – When Precious Flint got back to his room from being outside, he looked around his room and then he played with his stuffie, doing somersaults with it and the attacking it, biting and bunny kicking it. So cute! Then he attacked his scratching post, knocking it down, lol. He carried his hut all over the place in his mouth, dragging to different spots the attacked it, biting and bunny kicking it. He’s too cute!
After a while, Karma came back in to clean his room and give him fresh water and food, while he had his Bemer treatment. When he got back to his room, he excitedly checked everything out and then played like mad! He carried his stuffie in his mouth and ran all around the room with it, then he would roll and do a somersault with it, then attack. Adorable! He ran around the room several times, playing with his toys along the way. He sure loves getting into his refreshed room!
He played and played and played. He ran and would dive on his blanket, then slide and roll around, then get up and run around the room, then grab his stuffie or hut and drag them around. He’s so cute, he brings his stuffie and drops it right in front on the camera, then gets up on the camera box and grabs his stuffie from up there and then plays with it, lol. After he wore himself out, he got all cozy on his hut to take a long nap.
Later overnight, he woke up and played for a short time. He got up on top of his triangle scratcher and laid over it, lol. I tried getting a photo, but he moved before I could, lol. He played with his stuffie and he played in his box enrichment, then he wandered around for a bit, before going to his dinner plate to eat. After he ate, he took a bath and then went over to his hut and got all nice and cozy to take another nap. As I write this, he has woken up and is playing on his blanket with his stuffie. He’s just too precious!!!
ASH and CINDER – Ash and Cinder were out of sight for a lot of the afternoon. All of the CamOp reports said they were hiding out of sight, lol. They did come up front in the late afternoon and wander around the left side for a bit. They checked things out and Ash found some leftover food and ate it.
They paced the fence in the right side, then Ash went into the middle section and Cinder continued to pace for a bit, then she followed after Ash. A little later, just after dark they came back up to the front left side and looked around some more. Then they wandered around the right side for a while and looked over toward Malachite’s cage. They didn’t react much so they must not have seen him.
Then after a bit, they both disappeared into the middle section to their secret napping place. Later overnight they came back up front and wandered around, then they sat and watched towards Malachite’s enclosure. They must have seen him this time because they both stretched their heads up looking that way for a while. So cute!
They stayed there watching his way for a while, then they went to the left side and sat by the pipe watching and waiting. They reached their paws in the pipe opening, anticipating dinner, lol. They played with the pipe for a while too and then they got up on the hanging shelf to lounge. After a while, they were back down by the pipe watching it and digging around. As I write this, they are wandering around the front section and watching for Malachite. They are too adorable!!!
