General Feral Colony Notes
- The next fix-a-thon is scheduled for the weekend of February 17 to 19, 2017. Yes, it seems it is now going to be happening over three days instead of two, likely partly due to the fact that trapping is expected to go much more slowly this time around than last time — there are fewer unfixed cats at the Happy Forest and Nano’s Farm colonies (and the cats there are now hip to the trappers, where last time they just walked into the traps), and the cats at the new colony are more nocturnal than the other colonies and used to being fed in the evening.
- Shelly posted an update about the fix-a-thon. She also posted a link to the new Tinykittens.com page for the October 2016 fix-a-thon (since the old fix-a-thon page is now being used for the February 2017 fix-a-thon).
- The page for the February 2017 fix-a-thon lists 36 cats that are targets
- 12 are from the new Lion Colony (currently named The Great Pumpkin and Lion-2 through Lion-1)
- 4 are definitely from the Happy Forest (Elwood, Macey, Mabel, and Quinn)
- 9 are definitely from Nano’s Farm (Addison, Emory, Maddox, Mali, Marcel, Marley, Merrit, Nala and Racer)
- 5 I’m pretty sure are from Nano’s Farm (Aviva, Macrofloof, Marlowe, Mitt, and Owen)
- I’m not sure where Cato, Harley, Milo, Mitch, Morrow, or Rusty are from.
- The list of 36 doesn’t include 8 cats from Nano’s Farm (Dana, Deacon, Floyd, Muppet, Nell, Osborn, Rupert, or Rafferty) who were not trapped during the last fix-a-thon and are presumably still intact.
The cams and Livestream feeds
Recently, Shelly has been switching cams and feeds around fairly randomly so I am just going to note what cams were viewable when. Generally there is a VIP stream and a public stream.
- The VIP stream was on Calvin all day.
- The regular stream showed Finster and Boo all day, until they went to their new forever home, at which point it switched to a loop of TK video highlights.
- Nothing was streaming live on YouTube.
The F1 Colony Kitten Brigade
The kitten brigade is now just down to Finster and Boo (aka Foo), the Monkey kittens.
- Suzanne had a long last visit with Finster and Boo. The kittens got in some last minute sweater-nursing before the long trip to their new homes.
- Their new human arrived earlier than expected so their tiny suitcases were packed and they were on their way to their new Gig Harbor home before the 1PM expected time.
Calvin is in the feral recovery room downstairs at TKHQ.
- As usual, Calvin had some adorable play time early this morning. (That alone is well worth the cost of the VIP cam subscription.)
- Gwen visited him in the morning.
- Linda B. visited with him in the early afternoon.
Mason is at Shelly’s. He has the run of the house, though Shelly says he mostly hides under the couch.
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.
- There were no social media updates today.
