Dear Santa Snicker


Well Snicker here and I hope you guys are having a great 
Christmas.
I am going to answer a few letters so lets get started. 


Hey Snicker? How are you?
I really wanted to ask you a question. Is there another cat that's older than you, if so, how old is she/he? By the way, my kitty named Rufus says hello from Texas.
I also love the way that you guys take care of the animals, I really want to go!
One of my goals is to go there and pet every single cat and kitty. 

Lots of love from Texas, 
Sofia. 

Hi Sofia and Rufus. My mommy says I am about 6 or 7 years old.
I came from a shelter so they are not sure exactly
how old I am. The oldest cat here at BCR is 
Abby and she is about 18 years old and the next oldest is Keller who is maybe
15 or 16 years old. We have a nice guest house
that you can stay in if you ever want to come and
visit me. Just email my mommy and let her
know when you would like to come.
Hope you are having a great Christmas and thank you
so much for writing me.
Snicker

Snicker, are you feeling ok? I haven't see you around much and
I hope you are just sharing the spotlight, but many of us
fans want to know.
Thanks,
Connie

Hi Connie. Yes I am great. I have to let the other kitties have the
spotlight too *Purrs* I have been hanging out in the 
lobby greeting people and then in room 4 playing
with my friends. Take care Connie and Merry Christmas.
Snicker 

Hi my name is Michaela and i am 15 years old i love animals i am from Green Bay Wisconsin  wanted to ask about what you do all day and whats your favorite food and toys also i hope you are having a good time 
                                                               Love Michaela 

Hi Michaela, what a pretty name you have. Well
I do what most cats do all day, I sleep and eat and just generally
sit around being cute. *Smiles* My favorite food is 
anything with chicken in it and my favorite toy is the 
feather toy that the staff plays with me alot of the times with.
I do the Snicker wiggle and pounce on it.
Thanks for writing and Merry Christmas
Snicker

Stefan ask: How does it feel to live with such a big family at your forever home :)?
Stefan its amazing. There is always someone to play with
or snuggle with. The staff is wonderful so there
is always someone playing with me. Also we
get alot of visitors and they pet us and brush 
us and love us. So living here with everyone 
is the best thing in the world.
Merry Christmas
Snicker 

Hello Snicker,
My name is Cliff and I live in Illinois. My mom wishes I would cuddle more, but I can't be bothered with that. Any tips on how to make the mom lady feel loved, while maintaining my cat like independence?
Thanks!
Cliff and Marc

Hi Marc and Cliff.
Well some cats just are not cuddle cats. That does not mean that we
don't love you. We just are very independant like some cats are. There 
are many cats here at BCR that do not cuddle with people
but will cuddle with other cats. Every cat is different so do not
take it personally. Cliff loves you I am sure.
Merry Christmas
Snicker. 

David wants to know:
My question is about my siamese kitty named Pretty Girl. She never purrs. She seems happy to me otherwise, i love her and give attention when she will let me, i feed her treats and she plays alot. She just seems ok. Please help Snicker!

Hi David. Some cats do not purr. It is just something we either do or don't do. There
is nothing wrong with your Pretty Girl and I am sure she loves you. She
just does not purr. They still do not understand why or how we purr exactly. 
So just love your Pretty Girl and I am sure she loves you.
Merry Christmas
Snicker



Thank you for everything you so for me and the kitties here at BCR.
We hope you have a wonderful holiday.

Dear Snicker Dec 4th



Well I am back. Whee been so busy these last couple months helping my mommy get ready for Christmas and just being my adorable self with all the visitors *Purrs* We are really busy around this time getting out all the calendars, ornaments and pictures to our sponsors. I will tell you how you can get a special BCR Ornament after I answer this letter *Smiles*
So Denise wants to know:
My cat is also blind and he finds his way about the house without any problem.
Just lately he's taken to head butting the door to the understairs cupboard where the electric meter is.

I can't catch him in the act, because he's got ears like a bat and comes wandering over to me as soon as he's aware that I'm moving.
He headbutts me occasionally, especially when there is food about and he likes to rub his head on the furniture, but when he goes for the cupboard door he's really very loud with it. There are no corners or other edges which me might be "scratching" himself with.
He's about 13 years old now and has been blind all his life.
What do you think?

Denise let me first thank you for taking in a blind kitty. We are not much different from sighted kitties are we ? When we headbutt you it means hi, and that we trust you and it also is a way we share facial pheromones with you and other objects, basically claiming then.

Since I cant see I use my other senses of smell and hearing to find things and my whiskers to judge where things are also. You know as cats we do things that no one understands, sometimes we don't even understand it. There can be something here that has been here all the time and I will be walking around and smell something different and go check it out. Then its like wow is this new? Something that is mine? Well its mine now and I will just investigate it and rub on it and claim it.

Maybe that is what you kitty has done. He has smelled and heard the sound the meter makes. He may hear it and you can't.  Have you checked just to make sure there is nothing in there that should not be? Is the meter working as it should or making a sound now that it did not before?  Could a mouse have gotten in there and he smells it or is it totally secure? Just check everything to make sure its all ok. 


It may be that as I do sometimes in finding something new and exciting that then I have to explore everything about it. Since its inside a door he can't get in that makes it even more interesting. You know how we are about closed doors.  He also senses that for some reason you do not want him messing with it and now maybe it's a game to him. As long as he can not get hurt as you said there are no corners or anything and there is nothing wrong with the meter or anything inside there that should not be, he should be fine. He will just have to reside to the fact that this is a door he is not allowed to open and go inside or see what's inside there. 

You know he may find something else to become fascinated with like I do and then he may forget about that spot. 
Denise thank you so much for writing me and for taking care of such a wonderful kitty. *Headbonks*
If you would like to send me a letter you can do so at dearsnicker@gmail.com
Please though do not ask me medical questions as I am just a kitty and not a vet. If you have a medical issue please take your kitty to your veterinarian. :) 



So I said I would tell you more about the wonderful ornaments we have this year at BCR.  They are amazing. There are only 2 ways you can get one of these ornaments. You can either sponsor a kitty here at BCR or be a sustainer for 10 dollars or more a month.
So head on over to our website:Blind Cat Rescue and pick

out a kitty you would like to sponsor. We have a couple new babies on there now that need sponsors. Can't choose just one. Then become a sustainer for 10 dollars a month or more. 


Christmas Tip: We all know everyone has that person that always
gives them something they just do not like, or can not use. So you have to sneak to return it so you do not hurt the persons feelings. We all know this persons means well but they just do not know what to get you that you will like. This year you could always suggest that they give a donation to BCR in your name or you could even just ask your friends and family to do this instead of giving you a present.
