Was our vacation really only a few weeks ago? Looking back, it seems a lot longer. We were back in Massachusetts visiting family and took a day trip to the White Mountains in New Hampshire. One of our adventures was taking a gondola to the top of Wildcat. The views of the Presidential Range were incredible! Such a clear day. The only issue? The swarms of black flies at the top. They were relentless! It was a lot of fun anyway and would definitely do it again!
Less than a week to go until Snuffy’s big birthday celebration. It’s also my husband’s birthday and our anniversary, but we all know who is important here.
It’s not too late to make a donation to Lollypop Farm in honor of Snuffy’s 17th Birthday! He has everything a cat could every need or want, plenty of yummy food to eat, soft places to nap, and his adoring fans. We adopted him almost 17 years ago from Lollypop Farm and we wouldn’t have this incredible cat without them.
You can donate in honor of Snuffy’s 17th birthday, or send something from the wish list! Amazon makes it so easy to donate.

August is Snuffy’s Birthday Month! We are declaring it the month of Snuffy. It’s kind of a big deal since he will turning 17 on August 13th. Being the super special cat that he is, Snuffy is asking for donations to Lollypop Farm instead of presents. You can make a donation in his name or you can order something from Amazon off of the Wishlist.
If it wasn’t for Lollypop Farm, who knows what would’ve happened to our Snuffywuffykins. He was found as a stray when he was just a kitten. Our little funny-faced boy was sent into foster care until he was old enough to be adopted. That’s where we came in. So, help a cat out and celebrate Snuffy’s birthday month by donating to Lollypop Farm in honor of Snuffy, the best cat ever!
Not that Felix isn’t a great cat. He’s our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week!
Big Felix is a 6-year-old male domestic shorthair mix. This guy is affectionate and mellow. He is not a fan of dogs, however. Felix came to Lollypop Farm front declawed so he needs to be an indoor only cat. Come meet this couch potato wannabe at Lollypop Farm.
Cats don’t get the idea of personal space, or as I call it, stay out of my hula hoop. Eating lunch can be particularly trying. They don’t really want my lunch, they both want to sit on my lap and get mad at each other because they both want the same spot.
What you don’t see is Jezebel to the left perched on the arm of the couch. She doesn’t want my lunch either, she wants my napkin. She has a weird fixation on paper, especially tissue paper, tissues, and napkins. She stands on one end, bites the paper, tears off a strip, and eats it like a strand of spaghetti. As you can imagine, it’s not something we want her to do. We’re afraid if she eats too much she’ll end up with a blockag. She’s always on the hunt for any paper that accidentally gets left out.
At least I never have to eat alone.
Meet C3Po, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week!
C3PO is a 3-year-old male domestic shorthair who needs a new home. This handsome guy would love to meet you. Come to the Cattery at Lollypop Farm and see if he’s the one for you.
It’s Foster Kitten Meow Monday
One of the perks of working at my local human society is getting to have kittens in our office. These two little kittens needed another week to gain a few more ounces so they can be spayed and neutered before they are available for adoption. By opening our office up for these two cuties we have more space in the shelter for other homeless kittens and cats.
This time of year is known as kitten season and in our area it usually runs from spring until late fall. One unspayed female cat can have 2 to 3 litters per year with 1 to 8 kittens per litter. If those kittens aren’t spayed and neutered and go on to have multiple litters of their own, you can see how it can quickly get out of hand.
On a happy note, these adorable little kittens will be spayed or neutered and get adopted. You can do your part to keep the cat population down by making sure your pets are spayed or neutered. There are lots of low cost programs for spaying and neutering your pets and a simple Google search will help you find helpful resources in your area.
Lollypop Farm has an affordable low cost spay and neuter program called SNIP, information on eligibility and how to apply can be found on their website.
Meet Myrna, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.
Little Miss Myrna is 7 pounds of fur and purr. She’s a 5-year-old female domestic longhair mix. This pretty girl would love a new home with places to curl up and nap. A window sill or two where she could watch the birds and squirrels wouldn’t be bad, either. Come meet this little one at Lollypop Farm!
