 Hello Yogie Fans!

It’s finally September, but it still feels like summer here in the south so please don’t forget to provide cool, fresh water, and shelter from the direct sun and heat for any outside animals you may have. Also, don’t stop using flea and heartworm preventions. That’s something you need all year round.

Help Us Save Wabbajack the kitten! We have a young cat, just five months old, being fostered by one of our volunteers and he is very sick. We really need your help to save Wabbajack. As of this writing we have already paid $1500 for his vet care and he is not out of the woods. Speaking with the ER vet this morning he is going to need more diagnostics to rule out other viruses. We really, really, want to save this sweet boy. We may be going beyond the $3000 we are trying to raise via GoFundMe. We will update as we know more. But please, if you can help us with his medical bills please do. We thank you so much!

H
ere is the GoFundMe link for this fundraiser that you can share with your friends on Facebook: http://www.gofundme.com/4q35uk6w 


LOUISIANA AND TEXAS KROGER SHOPPERS!! If you have not already done so, please don’t forget to get your Kroger Community Rewards linked to your Kroger Plus Card. Every time you shop at a Texas or Louisiana Kroger and use your Plus Card, Kroger will donate a portion of the sale to Yogie and Friends to help the FIV and other special needs cats we have at the sanctuary. Every little bit helps! Here is the link to enroll or sign in (if you are already enrolled). Choose us as your charity of choice... NPO #80724, Yogie and Friends Exotic Cat Sanctuary (we will be fixing the name later, but it's still all good). https://www.kroger.com/communityrewards

 

We want to introduce our newest cat, Blackie:

 

Blackie is a very, very, shy, maybe six month old, solid black cat. He was brought to us from one of our supporters as a survivor of a community colony of cats being killed by coyotes. He may never socialize with us, but he is safe. We are constantly working with cats like him in the hopes we can get them over their fear of us. If not, then that’s okay too. They will always have a good home with us.

 

Changes and new direction: We still support our 8 remaining big cats in boarding in Oklahoma. It’s one of the hardest things for us every time we visit them and have to say goodbye again. It’s never, ever, easy. But! They are safe, happy, and healthy! So now, we must, for our emotional health and well-being, move on in this new direction for the special needs domestic cats. One way we are doing this is the very painful repurposing of our property. This means taking down the cat name signs on the habitats (but we have a friend who is making a special remembrance for us to display at the sanctuary), removing the big cat toys and bringing them to Oklahoma, taking down the fence and habitats as they are now and remodeling them to accommodate small, domestic cats (we are donating the fence materials to Lumberjack Rescue in Springhill since it is more than we will need and they very much need it), and then remodeling for the little cats. You can see in the photos the progress of the catio we are making on the old gift shop. It is so close to completion and then the cats inside will be able to enjoy going indoors and outdoors in safety from humans and predators. Once this is finished we will continue work on the building we will adjoin to Tigger’s old habitat for the other cats. It’s coming along nicely, but we do need volunteers to help make it work.

 

Volunteers: We need volunteer help. Now that we are not housing big cats, our volunteers do not have to be 18 or older. However, we do need you to have a current, valid driver’s license and a way to get yourself to the sanctuary to work if you volunteer. Too many times in the past people had to depend on others for transportation to the sanctuary and that doesn’t always work out and left us in a bind for help on work days. Volunteering can be anything from fundraising, cleaning litter boxes and cat dishes to mowing and weed eating the property, as well as carpentry skills. Also, just spending time loving on the cats so they get that much needed human attention. If you are interested and can help, then please do.

Wish List: As always, cash is king. We still have bills to pay. We have electric, water, veterinarian, and some construction bills. Some items we need are: Revolution for cats, cat food (currently we use 4 Health Grain Free and Friskies canned), cat litter (mostly Tidy Cat without Glade scented), and toys and treats. Cash is always easier since we can buy items at a rescue discount.

Support a Special Needs Cat:  FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) is a feline only, slow-acting virus. It is so slow to progress that most FIV+ cats die of old age.  Once thought to be deadly and highly contagious, it has since been found to be neither. Just as HIV was once believed to be a death sentence for those afflicted, so it is still with FIV. Only in the case of cats, the mere diagnosis produces that death sentence. Fortunately there are many veterinarians who don’t believe that this is the case and this is why we got four FIV cats. We got them from veterinarians who did not want to kill them. We do NOT want these cats to die just because of this diagnosis either. They deserve the chance to live. And live they will with us. Now that we have our first FIV positive cats living comfortably in their new home at Yogie and Friends, they will need your support. By sponsoring one of the FIV cats you will be providing food, medical care, and their basic care and support. 100% of the sponsorship goes to the care of these animals. None of the Yogie volunteer staff receives ANY compensation for the work we do.

Bake Sale and Fundraiser: We will have our ever popular bake sale at Petco on Youree Drive in Shreveport on October 24th from 11am-4pm. If you can help with baking please let us know. Vegetarian and Vegan baking are needed. We love this event. So do our fans!

Donations of cash are what we need most. You can donate online via PayPal. You do not need a PayPal account to use a credit card to make a one-time donation via PayPal.

 

Sponsors Needed:

Please note that some cats may be sponsored by more than one person, but rest assured that all sponsor funds are used for the ongoing care of our cats.

We have an Amazon Wish List with a list of much needed supplies for these kittens.

We still need your financial help with the nine big cats we are boarding and any and all donations are appreciated as we continue to care for them. They are safe and well.

Money we raise during any of our fundraisers goes to the boarding of our big cats and for TNR. We have always been, and will continue to be, a 100% volunteer driven organization.

Combined Federal Campaign (CFC):  CFC is in full swing right now, so if you are a Military member or Federal Employee we hope you will donate to Yogie and Friends via CFC. This program is easy and another good way to give financial assistance to the big cats. We hope you will please consider Yogie and Friends when making your CFC contribution. Our CFC number is 42427.

Recycle Ink Cartridges and Cell Phones: Please consider helping us with our recycling program.  Please don’t throw those old ink jet/laser jet cartridges in the trash. Give them to us. We recycle them and get cash for the cats. You can box up the cartridges; put a prepaid label on it that we will provide you, and then drop it off at any UPS shipping facility or they can pick it up at your business. If you need labels, then just contact us and we will get some to you.

August 2015 Update PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 11 August 2015 13:08

Hello Yogie Fans!


We can certainly tell it is summer here in the south. We have been experiencing temps up to 109 degrees in the shade and as high as 120 degrees in the sun. These are very dangerous temperatures and we hope you will take precautions for you and your pets. 

LOUISIANA AND TEXAS KROGER SHOPPERS!! Today, 1 August 2015, is the day to get your Kroger Community Rewards linked to your Kroger Plus Card to help the FIV and other special needs cats at Yogie and Friends Cat Sanctuary. If you link your Kroger card to our rescue via their Kroger Community Rewards program you need to relink it beginning today!! Once linked, every time you shop and swipe your card the Yogie cats will benefit!

Here is the link to enroll or sign in (if you are already enrolled). Choose us as your charity of choice... NPO #80724, Yogie and Friends Exotic Cat Sanctuary (we will be fixing the name later, but it's still all good). https://www.kroger.com/communityrewards


Website Under Construction: There are many changes taking place at Yogie and Friends Cat Sanctuary. One change is our website. Our awesome webmaster is making changes based on our update in mission and structure. We ask that you please be patient while these changes are taking place. You will love the changes and additions as they come along.

We are still a 501(c)(3) in good standing. We STILL support our big cats that are in boarding up in Oklahoma, and we are STILL doing a lot for the little cats. We are currently the only cat sanctuary in North Louisiana. We are helping with cats that others would just euthanize. These special needs cats need us and there is no reason to kill them just because they have FIV or any other virus. We will explain more about these viruses that effect domestic cats as we move along. For now we are trying to update, change, adjust, and whatever is needed as time permits. Our focus is on the animals and we appreciate our fans.

We want to introduce our newest  FIV positive cat, Frazier:

 

Frazier is a young, Russian Blue looking, male. He was a feral found and cared for by some very nice people in the neighborhood he was roaming. They had contacted a local rescue who promised to take him and get him adopted until he tested positive for FIV. They were told they should euthanize Frazier and they disagreed and contacted us at Yogie and Friends. Frazier is now living the life with us at the sanctuary. He, like all the FIV cats, is available for adoption. He’s a little shy, but very sweet and loving. Welcome to Yogie and Friends Frazier!

 

Another special cat awaiting intake. Bubba is another FIV positive cat currently being housed at Bossier Animal Hospital. Bubba is 3 years old and on hold with Dr. Snyder awaiting vetting. He is not neutered yet, but once he is he will be coming to us at Yogie and Friends Cat Sanctuary. He has a lot of swelling on his face from fighting with other cats. This is a common issue amongst unaltered feral cats. Fighting is also the way FIV is often spread. We look forward to providing Bubba a safe, permanent home with us at Yogie and Friends.

 

Circumstances Beyond Control: Sometimes we know there are circumstances beyond the control that cause pets to be left in dire circumstances. Things such as the death of an owner, an owner being placed in nursing homes, or financial situations causing an owner to give up a beloved pet, is not the fault of the pet. A recent death has left four cats needing a home. This is one of those circumstances beyond the control of these cats. They are sad, confused, and missing their human. We are taking the four cats in order to keep them all together. Sadly, people are mostly looking for kittens and don’t often consider that an older cat can make an excellent addition to their home. We are providing them this opportunity to stay together and hopefully make things as comfortable as possible for them.

Wish List: As always, cash is king. We still have bills to pay. We have electric, water, veterinarian, and some construction bills. Some items we need are: Revolution for cats, cat food (currently we use 4 Health Grain Free and Friskies canned), cat litter (mostly Tidy Cat without Glade scented), and toys and treats. Cash is always easier since we can buy items at a rescue discount.

Our tiniest of our furballs, Hope, has graduated on her vaccinations. She is growing and thriving and we are just waiting for her to be old enough to spay. We will also have her retested for FIV and our hope is that she tests negative and only showed FIV as a result of her mother’s antibodies. Paw and claws crossed!

 

These cats are all sweet and loving and we are more than happy to give them this opportunity to live out their lives in peace and comfort. We are hoping that our volunteers will give them the love and attention they so richly deserve. The building is being set up like a living room to give a natural feel of home for these cats. Volunteers can just hang out with them. It’s all good for us and the cats. We gain so much from them.

 

Volunteer Needs: We need your volunteer help. Volunteering can be as simple as spending quality time with our special needs cats, loving them, and socializing them. Basically just spending time with them. The FIV cat house is setup much like any living room in a house. We are doing this so that our volunteers can sit and read, watch a movie, etc., all the while allowing a cat time in your lap and just being loved on. This will allow these cats a chance to see what it’s like to have love and attention. We also need help with cleaning litter boxes, law maintenance, cleaning the building, fundraising, building outdoor catios, and more. If you are interested please let us know.

Hello Yogie Fans!

I took a break and skipped June for the update. Sometimes you just need a break. But, I am back and there are some very good things happening at Yogie and Friends.

First thing is we hope that everyone, human and animal, is safe from all the flooding the area has been experiencing. The Yogie property and animals are all safe and well.  Our big cats in Oklahoma are doing very well and there has been a great deal of rain there as well. We have been considering building an Ark, but fortunately that isn’t needed at this time. And we are grateful for that! Lol!

Our long term plan for Yogie and Friends, after our big cats passed on naturally, was to repurpose the big cat habitats for special needs domestic cats. Since we wanted our big cats safely out of here this plan has been moved years sooner than expected. We have been modifying our habitats to ensure that little cats could never accidentally get out. That work has been done. But after much thought and consideration we have come up with what we feel is a much better idea for our special needs rescues. We have a wonderful building we used for admission into the sanctuary. It is insulated, dry walled, painted, has heat and air conditioning, and is just a pretty building we have not been utilizing as we had before. We are now using this building and are in the process of making a connecting run from a large dog door out of the building and into an enclosed habitat. We have put in cat friendly furniture and enrichment and are housing special needs, more specifically, FIV positive cats. These cats will have the choice to stay inside or enjoy the great outdoors safely away from cruelty, vehicles, or other predators. We are excited about this. This building is also where our office is and it is much more convenient and a great house for these cats to enjoy. We will have an open house for the public to visit in the near future. Right now we are giving our newest residents time to adjust.

We want to introduce our first, special needs residents, to our Yogie and Friends fans and supporters:

 

Olaf.

Olaf is a beautiful, white male with flame tips and blue eyes much like a Siamese cat. Olaf was a feral cat who was injured and nursed back to health. He had an injured leg when we took him in and during his X-Rays a bullet, not the cause of the current injury, was seen in another part of his leg. During that healing time he proved to be a most loving, playful, and happy boy.

Gatsby.

 

Gatsby is a beautiful black and white cat with some very unusual facial markings. Tim said it makes him look like a guy. It kind of does. He will look at us and you would swear he is giving you an Elvis smirk. He is sweet, but a little nervous right now because of his feral beginnings. He is the only survivor of a colony that had been being killed by an unknown person. He loves being held and petted.

Hope:  (Photo Coming Soon)

Hope is a tiny ball of fur named, Hope, because she offers us hope of our new direction at Yogie and Friends. Hope is about 8 weeks old, a long haired tortoiseshell kitten, who had tested positive for FIV, but all medical literature regarding this virus, tells us she may have tested positive from antibodies from her mother and may test negative in a few months. We hope that is the case for her and she is currently housed separately from the other FIV cats. She is a playful and fun kitten.

Voodoo.  

Voodoo, is a beautiful solid black male cat. He looked pretty beat up and was missing hair that is growing back nicely. He was one of three cats living at Bossier Animal Hospital until rescue could be found.  He loves being held and loved on. 

 

Paisley.

 

Paisley is a long haired pastel calico. One of the three from Bossier Animal Hospital. She also loves to be cuddled. She is the least shy of the three cats that arrived from the vet clinic.

 

Sunny.

Sunny, is a gorgeous solid orange cat. He also is one of the three from Bossier Animal Hospital.  Sunny was pretty shy at first, but he seems to be coming out of his shell. He is very affectionate.

 

These cats are all sweet and loving and we are more than happy to give them this opportunity to live out their lives in peace and comfort. We are hoping that our volunteers will give them the love and attention they so richly deserve. The building is being set up like a living room to give a natural feel of home for these cats. Volunteers can just hang out with them. It’s all good for us and the cats. We gain so much from them.
