Confetti Finally Goes Home

Posted on Sunday, May 19th

Confetti Finally Goes Home 5,291 days. That’s 14 ½ years. Until April 30th, Confetti was the kitty who had been with Furkids the longest. Confetti was born in November of 2002 – the same year Furkids was founded, and came to Furkids in November 2004 from the Atlanta Humane Society, which means she may have spent her entire life in shelters. Confetti was adopted and returned several times over the years. Usually she was returned because of inconsistent litter box use. The last time she was adopted was in 2015. Whenever Confetti came back to Furkids, she settled right back in just like she… READ MORE >

2019 Kitten Season: a Full-Blown Population Explosion!

Posted on Monday, May 6th

2019 Kitten Season: a Full-Blown Population Explosion! The phones began ringing and emails began to fly in some time in February. A few here and there, and then the number and urgency began growing in direct proportion to the warming temperatures outside – and to the number of homeless mama cats and their litters of kittens. It happens every year, but with this year’s early spring the onslaught is much, much more severe! We don’t have time to ponder why. We just have to act, and act now.

Posted on Thursday, May 2nd

Jethro’s Cheeky Diary: the Power of Positive Thinking When Jethro came to us as a hurricane refugee, he was a truly sad kitty. He struggled to feel at home in the shelter, and although it was comfy and he got to participate in our Purrkids program (for shy, depressed or less social kitties who need extra attention), he still seemed so sad.
