Recap: Thursday, February 4, 2016


Feral Colony Cats

ferals currently being socialized at/through LAPS as of 2016-01-29 - Tellar, Eaton, and Rio

Note: Tellar is temporarily residing with Foster Mom Jules so that he can get used to being in a home environment. Eaton and Rio are still together at the shelter.


  • Jules posted a short video on Facebook of him snuggling with her.

Rio and Eaton

  • Kayla (and Amy?) had a Periscope session with Rio and Eaton at the shelter after the cats had been given their vaccinations and deworming.

Star Wars Litter

LAPS staff and volunteers have been easing up on posting videos of the kittens as we head towards adoption day, but you can go to http://livestream.com/accounts/14083503/starwars to watch the Livestream of this litter live. (Note: It’s not always easy to tell what day a video is from — Livestream uses relative time, i.e. “xx days ago”, for posts and Zulu Time, which is currently eight hours ahead of PST, for comments — but they are in reverse chronological order on the page.)

  • Weight chart
  • Today’s visits/videos on Livestream (in chronological order, titles from actual posts):
    • Cupcake Day Party! Kittens all have adoptions! – I don’t get a chance to watch all of the videos for the Star Wars kittens these days, let alone watch them live, but this one was too cute not to watch. Tiny birthday hats, cupcakes with kitten-friendly “icing” (made from Friskies, peanut butter, and corn starch), and much cuteness. There was also some interesting conversation about ringworm protocols and various shelter news, including Beetlejuice’s adoption and the fact that all of the Star Wars kittens have adopters (who are being picked up by their new humans next Wednesday, if I understand things correctly); Amidala will come back into Jayne’s office after they’re gone.
  • They posted some very cute pictures from the cupcake birthday party.


  • In the above posted Star Wars kittens video, Jayne is overheard mentioning that Kayla got the bloodwork back for Toffee and the vet has given Toffee, whose kidneys are not working properly and who is in the loving palliative care of LAPS staffer Kayla at her home, only about two to four weeks to live.


  • Beetlejuice, who was brought in from the feral colony in very bad shape on December 9 with Spice, was adopted today.

The cams and Livestream feeds

Today, Shelly set up a new Livestream event for the Feral Recovery Room. This was so that she could set up a new cam on Noelle and Elf downstairs at TKHQ.

So we now have three live streaming webcams at TKHQ:

  • The Jingle Bell’s Romper Room of Delight stream (which used to switch between the romper room and the feral recovery room but now switches between the romper room and NoElf)
  • The Feral Recovery Room stream (which is now just on Satine, Enara, and Tiger/Buffy)
  • The TinyKittens VIP cam (which gets swapped around periodically between the rooms that are part of the romper room stream).  The VIP feed (wherever it’s pointing at any given moment) can be accessed for a monthly or annual fee. (Consider it a way to donate to TinyKittens monthly, with the VIP cam feed as a perk.)

The change in setup occurred earlier today but a couple of the feeds reset at around 19:00 PST — as of that point in time, NoElf were on the romper room feed, Jingles and his pals were on VIP (and making me a little seasick because the cam has been tilted all day 😉 ), and the ferals were on their own feed.

ferals currently recuperating at TKHQ 2016-01-27 - Satine, Enara, and Tiger

  • No updates yet today.
  • The Visits:
    • Shelly visited.
    • Gwen visited. (The cam reset near the beginning of her visit, which I was watching on DVR, so I missed most of it.)
    • Kimsies visited.

Formerly-Feral Mega Romper Room

This is the room where Comet, Mistletoe, Jingle, and Nicholas are currently residing until they head to their forever homes.

  • No updates yet today.
  • The Visits:
    • Gwen visited. (The cam reset while she was cleaning; I was again watching on DVR so I missed a large chunk of her visit.)
    • Kimsies visited.

NoElf Room

This is the room downstairs where Noelle and Elf are currently residing, on their own while Noelle’s ringworm status is still positive.

  • No updates yet today.
  • The Visits:
    • Because the new cam wasn’t set up until pretty late, I’m not tracking (can’t describe/list) all of the visits to see NoElf today.
    • I know Kimsies visited because she posted videos (see below).
    • I presume Gwen visited at some point.
    • Shelly visited at least once. (I missed the visit live or even on DVR, but thanks to Little Darling I didn’t have to miss it entirely.)
