We are Supporting Boundary Helping Hands for Remember Me Thursday


On September 23, 2021, the entire world will share the importance of pet adoption, and shine a light on all orphan pets waiting in shelters and rescues. Since its inception in 2013, Remember Me Thursday® has made more than 1.5 billion impressions on social media.


July this summer was Marv's 5th birthday and we had lost internet access because of the wild fires in our area. Ms Ann and June (Zoolatry) held Marv's Party and our family chose to make it a comment-a-thon and raised $65. We chose to give it to Boundary Helping Hands and Mom took it there when she and Mary went to pick up our local feral, Merle .

Boundary Helping Hands helped our feral furrend Merle get snipped and up to date on his shots.  Since he came back home, Merle has been fun to be around. He comes and sits on our deck, we share hunting stories and he does not try to fight with me or Kozmo any more. We are so glad for Boundary Helping hands we are showcasing them for Remember Me Thursday!

About Boundary Helping Hands

For a few years, there has been no rescue organization in the Boundary Region. At the time of their incorporation as a nonprofit society in December 2020, Boundary Helping Hands had rescued over 100 cats & kittens, with the majority in their first year coming from hoarding situations. These were homes and properties with 30+ cats living in less-than-ideal conditions and suffering from many illnesses.
Once in their care, all of the kitties received all required veterinary treatment and were nurtured and nursed into healthy, vibrant kitties. Just last week, Boundary Helping Hands became a registered Charity!

Loving furever homes were found for 39 of the  rescues. At that time some were transferred to fellow rescue organizations (KAAP, Critteraid, Cat Therapy & Rescue, Okanagan Humane Society & SPCA) to give them the best chance at finding the purrfect adopters forever homes.

At any time, there are between 15-35 cats in their facility. Many of these cats require ongoing socialization to help them get over their fear of humans and to become loving house cats.

The work being done by BOundary Helping Hands benefits not only the hundreds of little lives they have saved; but also helps to protect the local bird population, controls the spread of infectious diseases to community pets, cuts down on feral/stray cat waste and spraying/marking of people's property, etc... 

They also help with escaped cats, rehabilitation of feral cats and adoptions to forever homes.

Right now Boundary Helping Hands has cats and kittens that are looking for new homes. We share some of their posts on our Facebook page and for this special occasion, we are joining Remember Me Thursday. The kitty we are showcasing is Gemma!

This is Gemma!

Gemma is a loving, calm and easy-going young lady. She is about 2 years old and just finished nursing her kittens. She is still looking for her forever home, so fill out an application for this beautiful soul today. 

We also have a video of Gemma!


At our house, we are thankful for Marv. Since he arrived he has been an incredibly happy cat! I have never had a cat who was so joyful and has such an incredible sense of humor. If you are "down" he will go out of his way to try to get you to laugh! He is affectionate (on his own terms). It is when you try to pick him up you realize he comes from a place where he he was not treated with any kind of affection. You see the flash of fear and the defensive actions.

On the Remember Me Thursday Website, we have lit a candle for Marv this year. Please click on the candle to be taken to his page on the Remember Me Thursday site. 

 Almost all of the furries who have shared our extended family's lives are rescues and each has their own unique path to become part of our family. We support all the organizations that help animals! 

We are so very thankful that Marv's life is now filled with love and joy and we are thankful that we can help Boundary Helping Hands! And we are Thankful that Brian is doing well weaning off some of his medications!  We are pawticipating in Thankful  Thursday at Brian's Home!

ARRR Selfie with Marv

 Hi Mom! I'm home! You won't believe the adventure I've had!

You went on a trip without telling me?

Yes! I had the most fun. I had a nightmare about Pirates! In my dream Pirates were catching and eating cats! I just had to go to the Island of Pirates to find out!

You went to an Island where they eat cats?

I met the Captain Pirate! He has a ship with lots of pirates, cannons and  shiny cutlasses. When he saw me, He said, Shiver me timbers! It is a Persian Tabby! Have ye come to join my motley crew and rid us of our Ratties?

Of course I said YES! He gave me a read coat, a peg leg and a shiny cutlass! All day I ran around and chased the rats and threw them in the ocean to swim to the closest Island! I got at least elebenty hundred of them off the boat. The Captain Pirate said I was the best Persian Tabby he had ever met!

Then we met another ship of Pirates. Their booty was getting wet and they asked us if we had any zip lock bags.  And my pirates brought out some for their pirate friends to pack their gold and money in and then we waved goodbye.

I knew I had to get home before dark or you would be worried, but before I left they showed me how to swing on ropes! Let me show you Mom!

 And they fed me a real fresh caught tuna! And they had their ship artist paint a picture of me! They told me I could come back any time!

I had a ton of fun, but I am super tired! 

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!  

Now go away and let me snooze!

Marv the Fill-Ins and the Feline on Friday

Friendly Fill-Ins

 This Friday it is all about ME!  Furrst, I, Marvellous, shall do the Friendly Fill-Ins.

1. Is it wrong to __________________?

Is it wrong to like to BITE!

I can't help myself. I bite Mom all the time! My furrend CK likes to bite TW too!

 2. I wish I had kept my _____________________.

I wish I had kept my bed that I had in Richmond
I got this bed from Mr Spitty for my very furrst Christmas. I LOVED it!  When we moved things happened very quickly and 2 bags accidentally went to Goodwill instead of being put into the pickup truck to Midway. The cat beds, stuffy toys some sheets, blankets and some of Mom's clothes were in those bags. I very seldom sleep in the new beds Mom bought when we moved here.

3. _________ is my idea of living happily ever after.

Living here in Midway with my Mom is my idea of living happily ever after!

4. It’s been a long time since I _________. 

It's been a long time since I thought about growing up as a street cat in Tehran, Iran.

The Friendly Fill-ins are written by 15 and Meowing (the first 2) and the second two are written by Four-Legged Fur Balls! We hope you enjoyed learing about Jo Jo as much as we love learning about you dear furrends!  You can click on the buttons to be magically taken to 15 and Meowing and the Four-Legged Furrballs blogs!

Poetry and Question and we are THANKFUL!

 Hi Guys! I THINK we are sort of back to normal.  Mom was not around much for 4 days this past week. She left the house early in the morning and did not come home until way past everyone's regular bed time. Cinnamon and us cats had our suppers really late on Friday and Monday (Alex works the late shift) and Mom did not get home until around 10 pm. We were not too happy. 

I, Marv, layed on Mom while she had coffee before she left every morning and I held onto her leg (Yes, I used claws) and tried to keep her home, but it did not work. Then she had meetings yesterday and was gone almost all day and in the evening too. We were not amused. She tells us she has one more day, next week.

She was home today and I have laid on her even more than I used to in Richmond. Cinnamon is laying on her, Jo Jo is laying on her and so is Kozmo! 

Poetry Thursday!

Yes! We are participating in Teddy's Angel Brother Sammy's Poetry Thursday at Two Spoiled Cats

If you would like to read more of the poems about this picture, click on Sammy's button and look in the comments for the people who are participating! Following is the inspirational image we wrote our poem about.

We went fishing to pass the day
It will be fun, or so they say.
Sitting on the  bank I wished
That I had never said I'd fished!
Where we are there is no 'net
I can't use my phone - I got it wet.
I wanna go home but Dad say No!
Gosh the time goes by so slow...

Merle Update and a Question

Merle avoiding Mom

We have a question to ask. It is for our feral buddy Merle who lives in our furrend Mary's shed. Some of you take care of feral cats. Our winters do get cold, sometimes for a few weeks we get really cold. We are wondering if any of you know of a solar powered heater or blanket that can be used to to keep the sleeping quarters warm. Currently we do have a couple of layers of insulation but would love to add a heat source. We are looking for something solar for safety reasons and that it is difficult to get power to Merle's preferred living location.

Thankful Thursday

Me, holding Mom down

I am thankful that things are (sort of) back to normal! I really missed Mom!

We are thankful for all the bloggers who host the hops! We are thankful for Ms Ann at Zoolatry who does the incredible graphics and badges and we are also thankful for our blogging furrends! Thanks for visiting us! And thank you for your comments! We Love you all! Now you can click on Brian's Thankful Thursday button to go to Thankful Central

Feline Friday!

For Feline Friday I thought I would let you know who was at the end of the tunnel from Wordless Wednsday!

 I visited 2 cats through the tunnel! 

Furrst was Precious! I was looking for Jo Jo and she had it dialed into Precious' place. Apparently she misses having another grrl cat to visit with and has been visiting Precious a lot.

Then Precious came back to our house to lounge on our deck. Kozmo brought out a special Yeeow butterfly for her! She is the purrfect company! What a wonderful lady cat!


The cat is out of the bag...Rumpy

I skeedaddled! 

I wonder if his Dad knows that Rumpy and me are the Mayhem Squad!

For More wonderful Feline Friday, please click on Sandee's button to be taken to Feline Friday! We LOVE Sandee's hops.

Mom will be too busy (and too tired) from working the election to post until next week. We KNOW you will miss my Art, our Selfies and my Awww-some Jokes, but we will be back!
