Eva's Eden will be hosted by the Franklin TSC this Saturday and Sunday from 10-5. In celebration of our new elongated day we are offering a raffle drawing for an overnight get-a-way in Nashville. More details will be forth coming, but we hope you stop in to enter your name. There will be a range of 3-6 month old kittens on site this weekend. We have a few extra special kittens making a debut, who have a unique story to tell, they will be wearing red bows. If you see a red bow on someone in particular, please feel free to ask one of Eva's Eden's volunteers for their story. … ????
This is Jade. No, she isn't going to eat you. But she is one tough mother. A lady, whom we shall refer to as "Ashley," saw her dumpster diving near her apartment complex one day. She watched as Jade dragged some scraps behind the dumpster and into the bushes. She followed Jade to the bushes and peered in. Lo and behold, Jade was dividing the scraps between her four mewling kittens. A neighbor of Ashley's came down to throw away some trash and Ashley asked him, "Do you know who this cat and kittens belongs to?" The man turned to Ashley and said, "They don't belong to anybody. Her owners moved out 3 months ago. I've been meaning to go to the store and buy some poison." Aghast and fearing for the cats' safety, Ashley went back to her apartment for a large cardboard box, poked a few holes in it and placed a blanket inside. She made a phone call to a friend, who knew the perfect animal rescue for the job. Jade let Ashley put her kittens in the box and she followed her back up to her apartment. Ashley met up with an Eva's Eden volunteer within the hour and mom and babies were brought into the vet. After a fecal test was sent out Jade was put on medication for loose stool. For a few months her body took time to adjust to a consistent diet of cat food, while Jade raised her kittens in peace, quiet and safety. Eva's Eden is still in contact with "Ashley" to this day, and although she isn't able to keep Jade for personal reasons Ashley donates once a month and is kept up to date … ????
Special Needs Cats
Katsa is bright-eyed and gaining weight after extensive tests and medication she is on the road to good health. Thank you to all who supported her through what were some of her darkest days. She loves to roll around in the grass to receive tummy rubs and now has the energy to go chasing after the chickens again. Katsa needs: $400-$500 for extensive fecal testing and medications once diagnosis is complete Petite in stature but great in spirit, Katsa was abandoned all alone in a box on the side of the road when she was roughly 8 weeks old. Off to a rocky start Katsa has been very brave but now she is in need of some extra medical care. She loves adventure, wants to spend every waking moment out in the sun and chases chickens like she ins't … ????

Melvin the cat recently joined our Assisted Living family. Melvin (formerly known as Jasper) comes to us from Eva’s Eden, a shelter in Blaine, Washington. He is about five years old and not much is known about his early life. What we do know is that Melvin is a love and his favorite activity is cuddling. It took him a little while to feel comfortable in his new home, but now he is the King of the floor! Melvin joins group activities, claims his own seat in the living room area, and finds a lap whenever possible. When not snuggling with the residents, Melvin can be found participating in the exercise classes, playing with his mouse, or chasing his own tail. He is quite a character and we all can’t imagine life without this wonderful … 🐾
Hi EE: First off, our new family member is now "Cap," short for Captain Jack, another character who is eye-challenged. Cap thinks this is fine, but then, he is enthusiastic about everything. This includes the half gallon of water he tipped over onto the dining room floor this morning. He then watched me clean it up, as did one of our other cats, who has been eyeing the new upstart with annoyance. Oh well, at least this brought them to a common interest. To be fair, their water bowl was empty. Cap has taken us by storm, his still-kittenish ways really livening up this somewhat stodgy house. There's nothing like a 12 pound black cannonball careening into your lap while watching the evening news. And he pounces on our senior cat when … 🐾
