Recently published daily recap posts

As of February 4, I’ve started (finally) to publish daily recap posts in a relatively timely manner. Going forward my aim is to start publishing the daily recaps within 24 to 48 hours of the end of the day in question.

I’m also slowly going back and publishing the AWOL posts from the last year — in a fairly random fashion. Since I publish them dated for the actual date of the events (rather than the day I make them public), it’ll be easy to miss them. So, for anyone wanting to go back and view any of them, I’ll update this post as I publish the older recaps.

The following posts have been recently published:

TinyKittens HQ

The cams and Livestream feeds

Since the fix-a-thon, Shelly has been switching cams and feeds around fairly randomly so it’s complicated to keep track of which room was on which stream at which time. There are still two streams (VIP stream and regular regular fix-a-thon stream) and any of the three rooms (Lion Colony room aka the white room upstairs, Happy Forest Colony room aka the purple room upstairs, and the Nano Colony room aka the small feral recovery room downstairs) may be on either of the cams at any given point.

General Notes

  • TinyKittens received a cheque today for $993 from CFOX as winner of their monthly RAMdom Acts of Kindness contest. (Shelly was nominated by Mountain View Veterinary Hospital.)
  • While she was there, Shelly was interviewed about her work with TinyKittens. The radio show wasn’t saved on the CFOX site, but Kimsies recorded the show and played it back via Facebook Live (with a lovely roaring fire video accompaniment.) Note: Facebook Live videos don’t embed well in WordPress so click here to go to Kimsies’ Facebook page to listen to the interview. It’s short, but pretty funny.

Lion Colony Room

The white room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ is currently the home of Wee Pumpkin (aka Wumpkin aka Wee Flumpkin) and Middle Pumpkin (aka Mumpkin) from the Lion Colony.

  • Suzanne visited.
  • Shelly visited briefly in the evening to give Wee his meds and to put out fresh food.

Happy Forest Colony Room

The purple room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ, current home of Calvin, Macey, QuinnBunny, and Rusty. (Note: Regular food cannot be left out in this room as Calvin is on a strict high protein diet, so snugglers/visitors have to bring snacks in with them and leave with any leftovers.)

  • Suzanne visited.
  • I assume Shelly visited, but I don’t think it was on cam.

Nano’s Colony Room

The small feral recovery room downstairs at TinyKittens HQ, currently home to Nala and her daughter Mali from Nano’s Colony.

  • As far as I know, this room wasn’t on cam today until the evening, but I imagine Nala and Mali got a visit from Suzanne. I also assume they got a visit at some point from Shelly, but it wasn’t on cam.

Mason

Mason is at Shelly’s. He has the run of the house, though Shelly says he mostly hides under the couch.

LAPS:

The cams and Livestream feeds

LAPS is currently having some technical issues with their computer and their Internet/WiFi and so they’re generally unable to broadcast a full-time live stream at this time. Their current intermittent streams are:

  • A Day in the Life At LAPS: This is the main general event for LAPS. It’s the stream where intakes are usually streamed along with other shelter residents/rooms.
  • New Intake: This is occasionally used for new cat/kitten intakes at the shelter.

Cupcake

  • Foster mom Shannon posted a couple of videos and pictures of the adorable Cupcake, who was brought in yesterday after his owners decided they didn’t want him and asked a vet to euthanize him. The update on his bobbed tail is that they don’t know what caused the tail injury, but it needs repair.

Early Kitten Roundup

  • LAPS announced that they will be holding an early kitten roundup on Saturday, March 11, 2017, from 11:00 to 16:00.

Recap: Monday, February 27, 2017

Feral Colonies

  • Kimsies was on feeding station duty today. She uploaded a number of pictures at the Lion Colony farm and the Happy Forest. It was snowing again today and the tarps at the Happy Forest needed some repair as a result.

Lion Colony Room

The white room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ is currently the home of Wee Pumpkin (aka Wumpkin aka Wee Flumpkin) and Middle Pumpkin (aka Mumpkin) from the Lion Colony.

  • Gwen visited in the early morning.
  • Amanda visited later in the early afternoon.

  • Gwen visited in the morning.
  • Amanda visited in the late morning.

Nano’s Colony Room

The small feral recovery room downstairs at TinyKittens HQ, currently home to Nala and her daughter Mali from Nano’s Colony.

  • I assume that both Gwen and Amanda visited with Nala and Mali, but the room wasn’t on cam today so I don’t know for sure.

Mason

Mason is at Shelly’s. He has the run of the house, though Shelly says he mostly hides under the couch.

  • New Intake: This is occasionally used for new cat/kitten intakes at the shelter.

National Cupcake Day with the Beauty and the Beast Litter

  • LAPS streamed their Kitten Cuddle Room live today on Livestream.
  • The kittens are going for spays/neuters Tuesday and Wednesday, and Belle’s spay is scheduled for Thursday. There were a lot of applications and adoptions will be this weekend.
  • They uploaded about 4 hours of the Kitten Cuddle Room visits. The first video was the first 10 minutes, before Amy hooked up the better cam.

    The second video is four hours during the day.

Cupcake

  • Foster mom Shannon has a new kitten with a bobbed tail to look after. Cupcake was brought in to LAPS today. Someone got him from a breeder, decided they didn’t want him, and took him to a vet to be put down. The vet brought him to LAPS.

TinyKittens HQ

The cams and Livestream feeds

Since the fix-a-thon, Shelly has been switching cams and feeds around fairly randomly so it’s complicated to keep track of which room was on which stream at which time. There are still two streams (VIP stream and regular regular fix-a-thon stream) and any of the three rooms (Lion Colony room aka the white room upstairs, Happy Forest Colony room aka the purple room upstairs, and the Nano Colony room aka the small feral recovery room downstairs) may be on either of the cams at any given point.

General Notes

  • Earth Options by Pets First posted an update on their donations to-date for TinyKittens and People for Happier Cats. (They donate food for the ferals as well as 10% of purchases made by TinyKittens supporters at Earth Options.) They also hinted at exciting news to come later in the week.

Lion Colony Room

The white room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ is currently the home of Wee Pumpkin (aka Wumpkin aka Wee Flumpkin) and Middle Pumpkin (aka Mumpkin) from the Lion Colony.

  • Gwen visited in the morning.
  • Linda Bell visited later in the morning.
  • Shelly stopped in briefly in the evening, after she left the Happy Forest room — just to move the floor cam up to the bench, which is where Wee and Middle have been hanging out the most.
  • Shelly visited again shortly after 10 PM. She gave him his antibiotics and eye ointment. His belly feels much less bloated. She told Middle that he’d be going home as soon as they could a new roommate for Wee.

Happy Forest Colony Room

The purple room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ, current home of Calvin, Macey, QuinnBunny, and Rusty. (Note: Regular food cannot be left out in this room as Calvin is on a strict high protein diet, so snugglers/visitors have to bring snacks in with them and leave with any leftovers.)

  • I presume that Gwen and Linda Bell also visited this room.
  • Shelly stopped in very briefly in the evening, mostly to adjust the on-bench cam. The three “upstairs” kids (Macey, QuinnBunny, and Rusty) were all cuddled up in the bin looking adorable at the time.

    Macey got some pets from Shelly; the other two opted out.
  • Shelly visited again in at around 9:30 PM. She brought snacks for everyone (Calvin was a bit hissy when she came in.) and attempted to clean some ears (there has been a lot of ear scratching lately): she got one of QuinnBunny’s done before QB deftly escaped from the blanket, but she was able to do both of Macey’s with only some token hissing and growling from Macey. (Shelly also remarked on Macey’s many love bite wounds. Thankfully Macey doesn’t have to worry about that ever again.)

    But the toys in the room are magically multiplying. Pretty soon there won’t be any room for cats. 😉

Nano’s Colony Room

The small feral recovery room downstairs at TinyKittens HQ, currently home to Nala and her daughter Mali from Nano’s Colony.

  • I presume that Gwen, Linda Bell, and Shelly also visited this room, but the room was off-cam (as far as I know) all day.

Mason

Mason is at Shelly’s. He has the run of the house, though Shelly says he mostly hides under the couch.

  • New Intake: This is occasionally used for new cat/kitten intakes at the shelter.

National Cupcake Day

  • LAPS is holding a day-long event at the shelter for National Cupcake Day.
  • They’re also featuring a “Kitten Cuddle Room”, where for a donation you can have the extreme pleasure of cuddling and playing with the adorable Beauty and the Beast kittens.

Belle and the Beauty and the Beast Litter

  • Foster mom Narod posted several pictures of Chip and Sultan meeting some of the other foster home residents.

TinyKittens HQ

The cams and Livestream feeds

Since the fix-a-thon, Shelly has been switching cams and feeds around fairly randomly so it’s complicated to keep track of which room was on which stream at which time. There are still two streams (VIP stream and regular regular fix-a-thon stream) and any of the three rooms (Lion Colony room aka the white room upstairs, Happy Forest Colony room aka the purple room upstairs, and the Nano Colony room aka the small feral recovery room downstairs) may be on either of the cams at any given point.
The streams bounced around a lot today, lots of resetting while staying in the same room and lots of switching the streams around between the rooms; it was hard to keep up. (At 10:50 PM, the regular feed switched unexpectedly to Neelix highlights so presumably there are some technical issues; it was back on the Happy Forest room at 11:38 PM.)

General Notes

  • Shelly posted a fix-a-thon update. She mentions that seven cats remain in TinyKittens care; those would be Wee Pumpkin, Middle Pumpkin, QuinnBunny, Macey, Rusty, Nala, and Mali. (Calvin doesn’t count among the seven because he came in during the previous fix-a-thon.)

Lion Colony Room

The white room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ is currently the home of Wee Pumpkin (aka Wumpkin aka Wee Flumpkin) and Middle Pumpkin (aka Mumpkin) from the Lion Colony.

  • Gwen visited in the morning.
  • Linda Bell  visited in the afternoon.
  • Shelly was apparently there in the early evening, but the cam switched to a different room in the middle of her visit so I missed it.
  • Shelly posted additional pictures of Wee’s eyes, post-conjunctiva-tissue-removal, along with an update on his health. They got his test results back today and are hoping that any abnormal results are due to his heavy parasite load (and the inflammation that goes along with that) and that the values will return to normal once he’s better. They’ve switched him to doxycycline because it has additional anti-inflammatory properties. His adult teeth are starting to come in, and his ears are looking better.

Happy Forest Colony Room

The purple room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ, current home of Calvin, Macey, and QuinnBunny.

  • I think Gwen visited in the morning.
  • Linda Bell visited in the morning.  She mentioned during her visit that Nicole would be coming in the afternoon, but I didn’t see Nicole at all today.
  • Shelly stopped by to shut off the light in the evening — I don’t know when or if she visited prior to that as the cam was not on this room at that time.

Nano’s Colony Room

The small feral recovery room downstairs at TinyKittens HQ, currently home to Nala and her daughter Mali from Nano’s Colony.

  • The room was on cam off and on throughout the day, but I didn’t see any visits there. I presume that Gwen and Linda Bell went down there at some point, but I never saw them on cam. Mali is still pretty snarfly, but sweet.

Mason

Mason is at Shelly’s. He has the run of the house, though Shelly says he mostly hides under the couch.

  • New Intake: This is occasionally used for new cat/kitten intakes at the shelter.

Daryl

Lily and Black Pearl

  • Two lovely older kittens were surrendered today: Lily, who is black and white, and Black Pearl, her all-black panther sister. Their owners had taken them in as young kittens to keep them safe from coyotes in the area, but now the human baby in the house has developed a severe cat allergy. They are very sweet. They will be going in for their spays this coming week, hopefully. (Black Pearl is definitely in heat and there was much amusement on cam about how frisky she was.) You can watch their intake in the video embedded below or directly on LAPS’ Livestream channel.

National Cupcake Day

  • LAPS shared a picture of some of the cupcakes that will be available at LAPS on Monday.
  • They also posted a picture of volunteers manning the cupcake table at Waldo and Tubbs in Fort Langley today.
  • Foster Mom Jules posted a selfie (of her, Seanna K, and Daniela, I believe) from the Waldo and Tubbs cupcake table as well.

Recap: Friday, February 24, 2017

Feral Colonies

  • Kimsies was on feeding station duty today. She posted several pictures and videos at the Happy Forest colony.
  • She also posted two videos of the Giant Pumpkin at the Lion Colony.

TinyKittens HQ

The cams and Livestream feeds

Since the fix-a-thon, Shelly has been switching cams and feeds around fairly randomly so it’s complicated to keep track of which room was on which stream at which time. There are still two streams (VIP stream and regular regular fix-a-thon stream) and any of the three rooms (Lion Colony room aka the white room upstairs, Happy Forest Colony room aka the purple room upstairs, and the Nano Colony room aka the small feral recovery room downstairs) may be on either of the cams at any given point. (The regular stream was offline completely from about 10:30 PM until 11:12 PM.)

General Notes

  • Someone will be coming to pick up the trap covers on Sunday to repair the fraying problem they’re having.
  • The two very timid Surrey Community Cat Coalition cats are going back to SCCC on Saturday.

Lion Colony Room

The white room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ is currently the home of Wee Pumpkin (aka Wumpkin aka Wee Flumpkin) and Middle Pumpkin (aka Mumpkin) from the Lion Colony.

  • Gwen visited in the morning to give Wee Pumpkin his meds, put out more food, and tidy up.
  • Suzanne had a long cuddle session with Wee Pumpkin in the late morning.
  • Amanda visited in the early afternoon.
  • Wee went to Mountain View (with Macey) to have his eye looked at and have his rapid heartbeat and quick respiration rate checked out. Shelly and Gwen visited with him in the early evening (shortly after 7 PM), and Shelly gave some updates.
    • The conjunctiva tissue covering Wee’s cornea was removed.
    • They vaccinated him and gave him a third dewormer, Advantage Multi — Wee is wheezing a bit and there are a couple of spots on his lungs that could indicate lungworms, and Advantage Multi works  against them and other parasites. They’re waiting on test results, which they should have tomorrow.
    • They gave Wee his Surolan ear drops and eye ointment — one more eye ointment tonight.
    • Shelly pet Middle Pumpkin a bit with a feather stick and Gwen petted him briefly with a comb, but he wasn’t a fan.
    • Shelly later posted pictures (the pictures she took last night, I believe) of Wee’s conjunctiva tissue, corneal scarring, and persistent pupillary membranes as well as an update on Wee’s vet visit on her TinyTapeworms Facebook page. In addition to issues she’d mentioned during her on-cam visit, she also mentions that Wee’s liver appears to be enlarged so they are consulting with a specialist.
    • She also posted a video of her cleaning Wee’s ears during his intake on February 17.
    • And a video of his ear mites.

Happy Forest Colony Room

The purple room upstairs at TinyKittens HQ, current home of Calvin, Macey, QuinnBunny, and Rusty.

  • The Happy Forest Room was not on cam today from about 9:27 AM when the feed switched to the Nano’s Colony room until 5:45 PM when it switched back. I presume that the snugglers (Suzanne and Amanda) popped in here at least briefly while they were at TinyKittens HQ during the time that the room was not on-cam.
  • Shelly and Gwen visited with Happy Forest cats at around 7 PM. They vaccinated Rusty and QuinnBunny. (Calvin is already current in his vaccinations and Macey has had a big day so they’ll do hers tomorrow.)
  • Joy of Joys! Calvin’s cat dancer is now properly hung up in the room. He’s a happy boy.

Nano’s Colony Room

The small feral recovery room downstairs at TinyKittens HQ, currently home to Nala, her daughter Mali, and old man Racer from Nano’s Colony.

  • Racer went back to the colony today. Kimsies posted a video of his release.
  • Suzanne had a good snuggle session with Mali this afternoon.
  • The room was no longer on-cam at the time, but I assume that Shelly and Gwen came here after they left the Lion Colony Room at around 7:30 PM to give meds and vaccinations.

Mason

Mason is at Shelly’s. He has the run of the house, though Shelly says he mostly hides under the couch.

  • A Day in the Life At LAPS: This is the main general event for LAPS. It’s the stream where intakes are usually streamed along with other shelter residents/rooms.

National Cupcake Day

  • Foster Mom Jules was live on Facebook with Kayla having Abel, Chandler, and Lexi taste-test the cheese, apple, apple sauce, and peanut butter pupcakes she’ll have tomorrow at Waldo and Tubbs in Fort Langley.

    Foster Mom Jules has Abel, Chandler, and Lexi at LAPS taste-test her pupcakes for National Cupcake Day.

    Unfortunately, Facebook Live posts don’t embed well into WordPress these days, so you’ll have to go to the LAPS Facebook Live post directly by clicking the image or clicking here.

  • Reminder: Cupcakes benefiting LAPS will be on sale tomorrow at Waldo and Tubbs in Fort Langley, Harvey’s Pet Foods in Langley, Paw Street Market in Langley, and Tisol Pet Supplies in Langley.
