Frootbat Friday, Nolo Style

Every time we do a Frootbat Friday, Teri says she remembers the first time she heard that word...from  Kaze and Skeezix and even Dragonheart...

It's a term that just makes her smile, like Furry Dance does...

On this Frooty Friday, we introduce to you a kitty named Nolo! Our friends that follow us on Facebook already know about him, but here's a little back story...

Last Friday, just as Teri was getting off of work and sitting out by Lake Anne with Kely, she got 2 messages from FB friends that there was a Cornish Rex in need at the Fairfax County Animal Shelter.

Teri has been a foster mom to a few mutant cats in need, and well, she couldn't just drive home and not do something! She hadn't ever been to the Fairfax Shelter before but she was impressed with what she saw, including many volunteers who stopped in to take the shelter dogs for a walk... Sweet!

They took her in to meet Nolo, but he was terrified, ears flat back and lunging at the cage door. He even had scratches on his nose from doing that! They told her he was surrendered the day before, his owner had died and a family member took him in, only to find they were allergic and poor Nolo was taken to the shelter!

He was friendly and outgoing on intake, when the staff snapped this photo...

But one scary night there and he turned into 'Unadoptable'... Fortunately the shelter had worked with the Sphynx rescue organization, S.O.A.R. (Sphynx Open Arms Rescue) and they contacted them about Nolo and two friends of mine heard about him and well...Teri's a foster mom again!

She brought Nolo home last Friday and set him up in the 'rehab' cage in the basement and he settled down very quickly and as you can see from this video...before long he had 'Happy Feet'! Like Teri said, that makes her happy, too!


We will keep you updated on Nolo (who has lovely Frootbats) and the search for his new forever home!


  1. Such transluscent beauty and color! And yer ears are pretty good too. Just joking... MOL!

  2. Poor Nolo! That must have been so frightening for him to be in that shelter overnight. Humans don't realize how traumatic it is for kitties who wind up in that situation. Paws crossed he finds a home soon.

  3. So relieved you are the guardian angel who was sent to rescue Nolo. Best in finding him a loving home soon. Purrs from Deb and the Zee/Zoey Kitties!
