Welcome to day one of our Grand Triple Header Commentathon & Got-Cha Celebration!
******Today we celebrate Rumpy Bump Stumpnots, tomorrow Einstein and on Sunday we will pawty with Top Cat Timmy! Take it away Miss Fitz.
Thanks Toby. We do hope you enjoy our family history so Let's all get to know our furst celebrant:
Rumpy Bump StumpnotsThe story as I hear it is that Dad was puttering on the good old internets as Dads tend to do. He had been thinking of getting another Sphynx. Our Angel Coco had gone over the Rainbow Bridge after having a good life here, first with Dads Mom and then with Dad after Mom passed.
Dad wanted to work with a rescue rather than a breeder so was browsing various purebred cat rescue sites. As he browsed and saw all those cats that needed homes he went from casual looking to seriously wanting to help a cat in need. Dad saw two handsome brothers and decided to get some more information on them.
Corkie and his brother were two American Bobtail kittens. They who were dropped at the shelter as they did not fit the breed standard due to being, well, rumpies.
Bobtails should have a tail that is about one third to one half the length of a normal tail. These cats may also have health problems due to the accompanying shortened spine. Dad emailed the foster pawent and she said Corkie was fine, but, he had an adoptoin application already and his brother had also gotten his forever home. Dad was happy that they both had homes and figured it was meant to be. Well it was but not how he thought.
A few days later he got an email. Corkie was available! Now came the logistics as he was in West Virginia. His foster pawrent suggested a transport company and Dad made the arrangements while she made sure he got his vet check and immunizations which are needed for interstate transport. All done but the waiting.
|After he arrived he went to the foster room. Here he is having |
his very first meal. Dad says that was gone in 5 minutes.
He still has a very good appetite. MOL
|He was curious and asked foster Phantom what he had|
gotten himself into. He was told how lucky he was
as those fosters were having a grand time.
|Look at those big paws. He has really grown|
|He really loved Dad right from the start. Just look at that|
face. He was making biscuits like crazy and still does.
Rumpy says he knew he was in the right home when Dad gave him his new cool name. Dad said "No more Corkie. From now on you will be known as Rumpy Bump Stumpnots." Rumpy ran around the room meowing when he heard that. He says everyone at our Vets office love his name and make a big fuss whenever he goes to visit.
We love you Rumpy. You are our big white whale without a tail!
Thanks Miss Fitz!
We do love our big buddy. Most of the time. MOL.
Now lets get to the best part of this event, helping others with our Commentathon. We are going to tally the comments today, Saturday and Sunday and give a half a green paper per comment up to one hundred to a great rescue that is close to my heart:
This cage free adoption center is where I furst met Dad. I tagged him from my favorite cat tree and when I saw him again I knew I picked the right guy. They have some fun events listed for anyone in the Philadelphia burbs so take a look.
Now on with the PAWTY! This is a three day affair with adult beverages so please spend weekend. Dad says he will stay in his room most of the time and you are free to lay on the bed as long as he has a bit of room. MOL!
|We have more cake so eat all you want|
|Tuna Cakes are the BEST|
|Extra Bacon for Timmy' Cat Scout pals|
|Buddy brews this in the garage. It's Great!|
|We have some craft beer too|
|Nip, of course, plenty more so dig in|
Remember to stay the night if you indulge in adult cat beverages
We hope you will visit the Yard Sale / Fundraiser that will help Jack from Tails from the Foster Kittens. Big Jack was very ill and he needed a lot of vet care and love to pull through. Purrs Jack and family!
Thanks fur coming Come back tomorrow!
