Not at all to do with interior design

Posted on Wed, 14 May 2008 by KiM

It’s official – I have lost my mind. I have 6 cats in my house. Yesterday I became a foster mom to a cat (I named him Felix) who’s been a fixture in my yard for the past few weeks. He went to the vets yesterday and has all sorts of health problems, but all treatable with antibiotics (PHEW!). I am fostering him through a FANTASTIC organization here in Ottawa called Friends of Abandoned Pets, who are graciously paying for all his medical bills. He has to live in my second bedroom until I get some test results back, so things are a little “hairy” at my house. 🙂 Pun intended. I wanted to post this because I am very grateful they are helping Felix and I hope they can find him a great home, especially since he turned out to be such an amazing cat. They are having their annual dog walk in a couple weekends so I thought I’d plug that too, because that would be a blast…and I may be their photographer. 🙂 So I’d like to introduce you to the newest (though hopefully temporary) member of my brood, Felix, one of the luckiest cats around.

Delurking to say Felix is a lucky cat. Props to you!

Hi Felix, when Kim tries to paint you or take you thrifting just say NO (or Meow.) Well, if it’s the same color as her kitchen it might be ok….

Julia, come on over – maybe after we find out about his having ringworm (contagious to other cats and people). Peggy, he is irresistible. Rachel, I’m not even sure why I thought of the name Felix, but it suits him perfectly. Thanks Princess in Galoshes!

Pink – he already told me he would love to accompany me on a thrifting venture. But he did say no to painting him. Maybe he’ll at least let me do his toes?

lsaspacey says:

Yup, cats can ALWAYS read that word.

AMR says:

Whomever adopts him should paint their walls that colour of blue. He looks fantastic against it! You’d never know he had ringworm! 🙂
Maybe pass along a paint chip with him.

And Felix the Cat was a b&w cartoon. Great name.

you have SUCH A BIG HEART!! incredibly mad for taking on SIX cats, but that’s why they love you 🙂 (and so do we!!!)

jawcey says:

Awww…he’s ADORABLE! My cat sitter works for Friends of Abandonned PEts – I’ll try to make it out to the walk!

PS – any flea market road trips coming up?

kim. says:

Jawcey, no road trips planned (so freaking busy) but the Great Glebe Garage Sale is on the 24th, and you can hitch a ride with me if I can manage to go!

jawcey says:

I know! I’m so excited! I’ll let you know if I need a ride – if not, let’s try to rendezvous at some point during the mayhem 🙂
