Saturday morning we set out in the cold for Elkin, NC, 129 miles from our home, to pick up kitties, Jazzy and Bogie. Jazzy and Bogie left Atlanta at around 8 a.m., and we were scheduled to pick them up at around 1:30 p.m. for our leg of the journey that would bring them to Salem, VA, with their final destination being Chantilly, VA.
Jazzy, a three/four-year-old, Maine Coon girl, and Bogie, a five-year-old, Manx/Mix boy, are two FIV+ kitties who were surrendered by their human but not because of being FIV+. They were surrendered because of temperament/behavioral issues. Granted, we were with them for only a couple of hours, but the very worst we could say about them is that Jazzy is shy. Bogie was an absolute lover. He let me give him endless head scritches while he purred and made air biscuits!
I brought sparkly balls for Jazzy and Bogie. They weren’t interested, however. Bogie eventually napped but Jazzy never took her eyes off me. She did finally give me a slow-blink kitty kiss. Sharkie and Blue accompanied us on our road trip so they could meet our precious cargo. This was their last adventure prior to returning home to Bailey on Nocturne.
This is some of what Jazzy’s new mom, Rhonda Dalton, posted on Facebook yesterday: “I put out my hand and she sniffed, head bonked and purrred it up.” Rhonda added, “Oh what a SWEETHEART. What a fool that person was that had her and dumped her at the shelter. If only they had given her the chance.”
Jazzy had been adopted off the internet and was only in her previous home for 15 days before being surrendered.

Be Forever Furless
It is with pleasure that we announce the winners of the Lilly Brush Be Forever Furless: Emma and Buster. I’ll be sending you an e-mail to get your mailing address.
Sunday morning, I discovered that all the e-mail in The Cat on My Head account had totally disappeared, and I was not receiving any new e-mail. After an extended live chat with by service provider, West Host, I was told that the particular server used by my account was full! They were in the process of adding new memory but did not know how long that would take. Approximately 12 hours later, my old e-mail started to load. However, as of 2 a.m. this morning, I still had not received any of yesterday’s mail. I am thankful that finally it all seems to have been delivered.
As my blog is stored on this same server, I discovered that I could not upload any of my photos when I tried to write this post. Consequently, instead of this arriving in your mailbox last night at 12:01 a.m., you are now receiving it some 15 hours later. Due to this, we will not post a Doozy of a Snoozy tomorrow. Without any additional problems (photos from this post have been disappearing as I wrote it.), we will be back for Wordless Wednesday.
Thank you to everyone who joined our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop yesterday. At least that seemed to work thanks to Linky Tools. If you did, however, try to load a selfie and were unable to do so, the blog hop is still open for submissions. And, of course, we hope you will join us again this upcoming Sunday.
Have a catabulous week!
What a fun “adventure” for all:) We think you are wonderful for helping out in this way. We bet those two were thrilled to arrive home to their new loving , forever family! And you had a part in it 🙂

Sorry you had those naughty confuser/server issues…
Transports are pawesome!! We just love to hear about kitties going to a forever home.
The CuteHead network is fantastic! We are so glad those two beauties are on their way to a forever and ever home. Darn computer stuff works great until it’s doesn’t. Glad your server issue is sorting itself out.
Poor kitties! So glad that there are wonderful peoples out there!
It’s wonderful of your humans to help to transport those kitties to their loving forever home ! We’re sorry for your technical problems, we hope it’s fixed now. Purrs
How fun that you got to transport these two awesome kitties! It sounds like their new home is the right one!
Gorgeous babies..i wish them well in their new home..and yes computer stuff has me on the back foot too!..emails programs..urgh always something 🙂 loves Fozziemum xx
How wonderful you were Cuteheads and helped these kitties get to their furever home! Yay!
Dorian is a jewel and a very special friend. Thanks so much for helping with the transport, it is such ambery special experience!
OMC, we didn’t realize you had driven that transport! A big cutehead paws up for helping those kitties go miles toward their eventual forever homes.
Holy MOUSES, that sounds like terrible innernetz issues! Boo HISSSS. Yay for the kitties who you transported though. We agree, who WOULDn’t like a Jazzy head-butt???
Jazzy and Bogie look like sweethearts. How wonderful that they’re getting new homes.
That was great of you to help Jazzy and Bogie get to their new home. I hope they settle in well and are very happy there.
Thank you to Mom Janet for participating in that Cutehead transport. Mom and Dad here got to do one once, and it was really rewarding!
Hooray for Jazzy and Bogie being in a wonderful forever home now.
How cool that you got to transport Jazzie and Bogie. The mom hopes one day she’ll be able to do a Cute Transport.
You are great Janet! Helping those misunderstood kitties. Hope they are firever happy in their own new homes.
Oh Mom Janet, so great of you to help Jazzy and Bogie get to their new forever home, we wish them all the very best in their new home! Sorry to hear about the email problems, hope it is now all getting sorted out.
Bravo to you two for getting those adorable kitties to what I am SURE will truly be their forever home. How very sad….it sounds like a classic case of “gee I really am not interested in keeping these cats” and then just dumping them like used clothing at the store. I think they’re in good hands now…………makes me HAPPY! Glad you’re getting email – I sent you one yesterday then the same message thru Scouts today – something told me you might not be getting your email!
so happy they are both with people who APPRECIATE them, too bad we can’t dump the people into shelters, ‘eh?
KUDOS and love to you for doing what you do….Dorian also, (have known her for quite some time and he is amazing as well!)
Nice one and well done. As for the tech stuff grrrrrrrrrr. Have a marvellous Monday.
Best wishes Molly
What an awesome thing to participate with! I hope that Bobby and I will be able to help with this kind of thing eventually. We are so glad that Jazzy and Bogie are now in a home with a family that loves them and will give them the time they need. We are also happy to hear that someone was so willingly happy to open up their home to not one but TWO FIV+ kitties! A Happy Tail indeed!
Hope your server trouble get resolved soon. Technical difficulties like that are always a pain.
Sampy sends 2934875092834 kisses to Astrid, and we all send lots of love!
Jazzy & Bogie are lovely Janet!! I am so glad you & tom were able to help with their transport & that these 2 beauties have a new home. Some people just expect a ‘new’ cat to magically adapt! It does not happen like that all the time as we know.
Last nite was the 1st nite Purrince Siddhartha napped in my lap & he has been here since Dec. 9th. Patience is the key!
I am sorry you had all that upheaval with the emails/server/hosting thingmajig!
It’s always something isn’t it???
Much love to you, Tom & the Kitties Blue x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0x0
