Recap: Wednesday, February 15, 2017

TinyKittens HQ

General Feral Colony Notes

  • The next fix-a-thon is scheduled for the weekend of February 17 to 19, 2017.
  • Shelly posted a video of the welcoming committee that greeted her when she went to the Happy Forest feeding station today. Macey, Saratoga, Quinnbunny, Rollins, Hannity, and Eaton are all ready for forever homes. (I assume that, as with Ramses, they won’t be brought in unless and until they have an adopter ready and waiting…except for Quinn and Macey, who are both on the hit list for the February fix-a-thon, Quinn for dental work and Macey because she isn’t spayed yet and is suspected to be pregnant again. Eaton wasn’t quite sure of being an indoors when LAPS tried to socialize him in January/February of 2016 — it’s nice to see him feeling better about that now.)
  • Shelly also retold Saratoga’s sad story in that post — Saratoga was very pregnant when she was trapped on April 8, 2015, along with the also very pregnant Echo and Hera and seven other ferals (Tiberius, Piper, Nash, Moore, Hayes, Soren, and Rio); the stress of the situation caused her to miscarry her entire litter so she was spayed and returned to the Happy Forest. The fact that she’s showing signs of enjoying human company now is a *huge* step. It was Saratoga’s and Echo’s bad reactions to being in captivity that inspired Shelly to try to find a kinder, gentler way to care for pregnant ferals.
  • Shelly also posted a short video (in the TinyKittens Unite group) of Sable letting Shelly pet her at the feeding station. (Group permissions don’t allow posts/videos to be embedded so click the link to go watch the video.)

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 highlights of past litters.
  • Nothing was streaming live on YouTube.


Calvin is in the feral recovery room downstairs at TKHQ.

  • Presumably Gwen visited in the morning, but I missed all of the visits today due to cam resets.
  • Kathryn Jane visited with Calvin today.


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.

General Notes

  • There were no cat-related social media updates today.
