Meowza, dear furrriends... We have arrived at Summercamp for @rosie_milo 3rd Birthday #RosieAndMilo3rdBdaySummercamp 🏕️
And, as night is falling, our VP #LordWestenwind sits quietly outside and looks at the heavenly skies and wishes... wishes upon all the stars shining brightly out there...🌌✨
That those who recently crossed #AcrossTheBridge arrived safely amd were welcomed by all those who went before them... May you all Shine On furever more, knowing you will be remembered #NeverFurgotten ... Thinking of dear Mittens @life_ofmittens 🌈 Jerome @menageriedechats 🌈 Max @tijger_haarlem 🌈 Boba @apollo_and_boba 🌈 Zelda @ozzy_princeofbarkless 🌈 Alfie @slimkitty_007 🌈 and also a brave little fella called Woodstock @tinykittenshq that stole our hearts during his very short life... 🌈 ... and that gorgeous ginger giant that was the remarkable Mr.Cat @mr.cat_and_leo.the.brave 🌈😿😿😿😿
That those who are ill, sick or injured may heal and, if for some reason not pawsible, their suffering may become less so they still can enjoy life ♥️ Thinking of sweet Reggie @blackie_reggie ♥️ Rogie @the_bunny_and_sorin_family ♥️ Treppie @dazzleandherminions ♥️ Gus @poncho_grande_ ♥️ Mr Moo @mytuxedokitties and there are so many more, so this goes to all you pets out there who need it!
That those who are lost may come home again and, if not, then please let them be safe, loved, well fed and in good health... Thinking of dear Cindy @cindy_andbunch 😿 Rain @rainyrainthecat 😿 and all those pets who are missing...
That those who are feral and/or stray, are cared for and safe from harm and abuse, their bellies full and that they know shelter ♥️
That those who need suppawt in times of sorrow, find it and may we, Cats* & Hoomans of #COI always be there for one another, whatever may be, pawsies..
Yes, it is a bittersweet place to be, but we wouldn't want to be anywhere else in the whole universe! ♥️
All our Love, #RotterdamCats & #RotterdamCatCrew
*or whatever species you are ♥️

Dr Who and PPD Padishah @mypetsetmoi (who has a fake real sparkly gold speedo with purple lamé) are gonna do a double routine, which according to Dr Who is gonna be FAB-U-LUSH! Already checked on Ebay and we may get up to $ 2,500 💰 for those speedos. I mean just in case they accidentally fall into our paws.👜😹
When we add this to the CAD 10, which our adorable MURRAY @itsmekevin_thecat raised by selling freshly squeezed lemonade 🍋#murrayslemonadestand , we could pay most of the penalty charges from a trip with Clover's BORROWED Barbiemobile. A big THANK YOU to adorable MURRAY🧡 and everypawdy who bought a glass of lemonade!🥤
Lord Westenwind @rotterdamcats even placed a bulk order of 🍋 the lemonade, which is served at his #lordwestenwind14yearsyoung 🎂 birfday pawty.

He suffered a seizure and was diagnosed with a heart murmur.
Thank mew, Bean, fur letting us know. Sending our ❤️❤️❤️.


Chewbacca: So are you really going to wear THAT?
Dr Who: Of course, I asked Mumcat to add some gold lamé to my sparkly purple speedos. There’s nothing like a bit of sparkle to add that j'en sais quoi to my pole dancing. Beside Pradishah’s PPD Meowmy @mypetsetmoi made him sparkly gold with purple lamé for our doubles routine *claps catcher’s mit sized paws together quickly* IT’S GOING TO BE FAB-U-LUSH
Chewbacca: I’m not so sure that that’s what Ollie is expecting at his #holycrapim14pawty I think it’s going to be more like holy crap who let this doofus in.
Dr Who: *grumpily points to invitation* The invitation explicitly said pole dancing. Why are you bringing your glue gun? You know Alpha Male Cat says you can’t glue Butters to the floor again even though that is what Ollie really wants for his birthday.
Chewbacca: Actually he wants me to glue him to the ceiling. But the real reason I’m taking my glue gun is because it’s #lordwestenwind14yearsyoung pawty. He wants everybody to #lendahelpingpaw so all weekend I’m going to be making free repairs. ~
It doesn’t matter if something got broken at a pawty like at #buggys5thbirthday or we just want to make some nice crafts at #sunshinesscrumptioussixthbirthday I’m going to be ready to lend a helping paw. What are you going to do Fluffybutt?
Dr Who: #Ijustwanttodance
We want to wish all our special furriends @olliebolliebutters @rotterdamcats @buggy_supercat @iamyoursunshinee the very happiest of birthdays. Now let’s get these pawties started! And don't forget to bring along anything that might be a #gluegunemergency


Everything’s coming up roses! 🌹

I’m feeling cute in my Pink and Yellow Rosebud Bowtie from @fashion.pawradise

Meowza, dear furrriends! So, the LordCat Himself, the one and only #LordOfTheCouch will be celebrating his birthday tomorrow! 😻🎊🎉🎇
On Friday, July 12th, our VP #LordWestenwind will turn 14 years young and that calls for a special edition of #RotterdamCatsKaraoke #LordWestenwind14YearsYoung 🎀
What we #RotterdamCats & #RotterdamCatCrew would love to the most, is ALL of you furrriends or at least as a many of mew as possible to join and sing songs of pawsitivity and suppawt - as there many out there who could use some love and kindness, whether it is a pet, a stray, a feral or Hooman... ♥️
It is a harsh world out there, pawsies, so let's #LendAHelpingPaw whenever and wherever we can...♥️🐾🐾
In that spirit, our #LordOfKaraoke
will sing whatever Happy Songs you want him to sing! 🎤🎵🎼
We love you all, pawsies and we couldn't imagine our world with you all, without this wonderful feline community we call #COI
#coicommunity and to us, that means all other pets, too! 🐾🐾

Meowza, dear furrriends... We #RotterdamCats & #RotterdamCatCrew just want to take the time to send some love and suppawt to some furrriends out there who need it!
Our newly found furriend & fellow panther Shadow @cutemagicalpets crossed The Bridge recently, while he was awaiting treatment for lung cancer. His Meowmy and brofur Gizmo could use really use some extra love and purrrs right now, pawsies 🐾❤️
The saddest tragedy struck the family of @adventuresindiaperland as they had to say goodbye to three of their older kitties Santana, Frampton and Maggie very suddenly and all three in a very short time. This loss is beyond everypawdy's imagination and we deeply feel with their family. Please go and show them some love and suppawt in these dark hours 🙀🙀❤️
To you kitties Shadow, Santana, Frampton and Maggie, we say .. Shine on, dear ones, shine on #AcrossTheBridge out there in That Great Beyond, where it is Furever Springtime ... Shine brightly over your grieving families, furever and ever more #NeverFurgotten

Then, there are quite some kitties out there battling illness, so please send them all your #HealingPurrrs & #PawsitiveVibes.
Then, our buddy Reggie @blackie_reggie is still fighting an ear infection and he still could use your pawsitive vibes and TCL #purrsforreggie 🐾❤️ His Meowmy set up a GoFundMe, link in their bio @blackie_reggie ❤️
Wishing Sheldon @sheldonandpals all the luck as he was rushed to the ER earlier and, while he is back at home, is still not doing well 🐾❤️
Sweet Hugo @lulu_and_hugo got salmonella and is very sick with a high fever now, so send him some love too ❤️🐾
Sending strength to poor Jack @love_jackanddex #welovejack who is suffering from a blocked urethra which has also been the case with dear Boni @boni_mckenzie who is being treated but still in bad condition.❤️🐾
Much love for brave kitty Lola @lola_warrior_princess whose cancer has returned and sending #purrsforlola ❤️🐾
Dearest furrriends, we send our purrrayers and suppawt your way. Whatever you are going through, please know you are not alone. We repeat, you are not alone.

UPDATE: I am so happy to say that my vet's guess at cost was higher than what his vet visit ended up costing!😅 In light of this, Hero's bill has been paid in full. What a relief!
Thank you so much to all who donated to his care! 🥰 **A separate post will be shared with his vet visit pics.

Hero has a vet appointment this afternoon but, he's a bit short on funds.😟 Hero is going for some bloodwork to monitor his disease as well as, to check on his thyroid. Hero has both leishmaniasis (a blood born parasitic disease) and hypothyroid.
With his weight gain, I'm concerned his thyroid meds need adjusting; however monitoring his disease is also important to ensure he's not heading towards a flare-up. Up to this point, his disease, while actiive, has been very stable. I hope the bloodwork will continue to give us good news this way.

Any financial gift of support is appreciated to help Hero afford his medical visit this afternoon. He short $135 based on what the vet estimated his bloodwork cost to be (between $400/$450). Thank you for your support of this big snuggly lug! We are grateful for every dollar gifted. No amount is ever too small.💖

To make a financial gift, please send e-Transfer to randomrescue7@gmail.com OR a direct donation can be made to Beaches Animal Hospital (1-416-690-4040) under the name Jiha Humayun (Hero's other rescue mom - it was a joint effort😊) Thank you!

Had a great time at the earth day fair! Such an important day, we should think of it always #earthday




WE do our own yard maintenance here at the shelter. Mowing, weed eating, clean up and making this a home environment for our animals.
The other thing to keep in mind is that this gives us the opportunity to have the animals get familiar with loud noises, and see how they react. Besides, they help water the plants too 😂 and get one on one cuddles!
