    About 2 years ago I found a stray cat outside at one of my cat sitting clients homes. They said they had seen her off and on for a few weeks and they said none of the neighbors has a cat. After calling all local vets and animal rescues in the area - it was clear no one was missing her. My client was not able to adopt her but she did foster he medical care for the first few months - and that was such a blessing.


      She was underweight, was crying and had a head tilt. I think she was ready to be rescued because when I put the can of tuna fish in a cat carrier she went right in. I took her straight to my vet and it was there she had a lot of tests and an exam. She was a very fractious cat. If you know that word, then you have a good idea of how this vet trip went!  


    It was tough. She was scared and  didnt feel well, and was stressed from the experience.     We named her Lanie Cat. When she came home I had accommodations already prepared - a cozy condo with a window view, a bed, litter box and a scratch pad.


    It was covered of course on the top and sides for privacy. She had a great window view and fresh air. But her favorite was fresh food. She could t get enough food. Over time, my husband and I have really tried to work with her, creating a safe environment for her and building trust.    


      At first she wouldn't play with us. A toy or string toy was seen as a threat. Lanie is a fighter and she would attack to kill any toy we offered her. Then one day I heard a chirping sound coming from her room. When I peaked inside she was playing with the bird toy that makes a chirping sound when tapped. I was overjoyed!


    This might have been one interaction but it was a very good sign. ​ ​ Since then, we began interacting with her even more. She is learning to play and learning to be touched. Now she can let us pet her and today I even gave her belly a massage. Lanie is still quick to swat or react when stressed, but when things are quiet and slow she is so relaxed. It's nice to see a cat transform with time and love.


    We call it learning to be a house cat! Do you have a rehabilitation story you could share? You can post a comment and tell us about it or email me at info@purrview.com and I can help you share it in a post.

    happy cat dish from Tonia Fleming on Vimeo.


    Im not entirely sure where this adorable dish was made but every time I clean it for the kitties it makes me so happy. The day that I filmed, the sunshine happen to make it sparkle! That just made my day. Do you have a bowl like this or one that makes you happy when you clean it. Tonia!

    Greetings on this beautiful Sunday morning! I am so happy to be up and awake - last night was a difficult breathing night and I'm not sure why? It was cool and it  didnt feel like too much pressure in the air. But! I am beginning to realize I'm having some elevated asthma the past 24 hours from lots of cat sitting and exposure and I think I am having side effects from one of my inhalers. Research says that 75% of the population has the DNA to expel mold and mycotoxins from the body thus healing quicker from the affects it takes on the person and 25% (like me) can not expel the mycotoxins.


    Therefore even though we remediated our house, biosweeped and deep cleaned our home in January - the mycotoxins could still be residing in my liver -making me sick or agrivating the inflamatory response when exposed to allergens like cats, dustmites, pollen, grasses, trees. Yeah for me. Last week and this week Ive been having alternative labs done and in August I will be seeing the Mold/Lyme doctor Margaret Ditulio in Atkinson New Hampshire and I cant wait to have a real diagnosis and a proper plan for healing. Atleast I have the joy from my cat family - they are so sweet, so funny and a comfort to be around. Do any of you suffer from asthmas? Have any of you ever been exposed to mold illness? Id love to hear from you. -Tonia

    In June I attended a yard sale hosted by the Kingston Animal Hospital in their parking lot and they donated all the funds to the Kingston Animal Shelter's Animal Care Fund.


    The Animal Care Fund is an account that is set up separately from the Kingston town budget and is solely funded by donations. Because the shelter and the fund is a government entity it can not seek or ask for donations, it can only accept them. The town budget alocates approximately $800 a fiscal year to animal care expenses. So the Animal Care Fund provides the bulk of the care and no tax payers pay for that care in their taxes. Its a win win because the shelter goes above and beyond to provide veterinary care and well ess exams, vaccines, heartworm prevention and treatments, microchips, spay/neuters and much more - all to help the dogs and cats that enter the shelter. Providing that care costs money and in the last fiscal year which just recently ended the Animal Care Fund spent about $5,800 on animal care and shelter expenses, it took in abiut $5,100 in donations and the Kingston Animal Hospital also generously donated over  $5,000  for veterinary services and care in addition to the animal care fund expenses.


    If the Animal Care Fund had to generate donations to keep up with veterinary costs they would have to raise around $11,000 roughly. Since it cant seek donations - the fund then waits for kind hearted people to donate to it every year. This June at the yard sale the fun group at the Kingston Animal Hospital coordinated a great yard sale - with an excellent variety of items, great parking and a good amount of shade. In addition, they had awesome giveaway items for adults and kids alike.


    Joe from The Dunkin Donuts on Rte 3A Main Street in Kingston, across from the highway on ramp donated 2 dozen donuts and 2 large Joes of Coffee for the volunteers that helped during the event! The event raised $1600 for the Animal Care Fund! What an amazing day. Here is a video I produced for PCN on the yard sale. The first person I interviewed was Ember Fleming - Do you recognize her??? She is Dustin's sister! If youd like to donate to the Kingston Animal Care Fund send a check to Kingston Animal Care Fund  to the town hall or the shelter and they will deposit it into the fund. You would be helping a lot of worthy dogs and cats. Enjoy! Tonia

    Today has been a very nice day and at home my kitty's are sitting in the window hammocks and on top of their cat tree's looking out the window.



    I know theyre watching birds fly by, chimpunks racing around the yard and probably have a birds eye view of a lot of things I cant even think of.




    I wanted to share some of my favorite cat pictures of kittys sitting by windows or staring out their windows. Its so cool to watch them quietly and see what theyre doing.

    This looks a lot like my house, maybe not so many wall hangings but I do have a cat collectible, trinkets and toy collection.[/caption] My daily CAT alert share this great story about the 

    Museum Exhibit on Cat Ladies! Not sure if I like this title,  but I do love how they promote and educate about TNR through the exhibit itself and promotes the incredible work that Cat Ladies (and cat men) do to help cats. The article has a great radio segment to listen to and some cool pictures! Does you house look like this? Mine is pretty close. This looks a lot like my house, maybe not so many wall hangings but I do have a cat collectible, trinkets and toy collection.

    On Halloween weekend Papas Pet Project had a grand opening celebration to usher in the new pet supply store and soon to open adoption center at their new location at 14 Manomet Point Road, in Manomet. Dustin and I arrived just in time to see a few kittens and dogs dressed in adorable costumes! We had a lot of fun that day and I produced a pet mews segment for PCN. The organization will continue to do adoptions from Per Smart in Plymouth, but the new location will allow them to expand and help many more cats and kittens! The proceeds from the pet supply store, which was decorated like a late 1800's country store, will go directly to support the adoption center!

    In the fall of 2016 I produced this PSA for Papa's Pet Project. They had just opened a new location in Manomet to help cats and they took on two new adventures. The first was the opening of a non-profit pet supply store where all the revenue goes to support the adoption center located right next door. This new location allows for more educational and fundraising events to be held at their own location. The PSA gift to help them gain publicity for their new location and first major fundraiser held at the store.
