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!
