It’s no secret that book lovers are also frequently cat lovers as well and Flights of Fantasy Books and Games has long been a refuge and home for rescue cats with Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).
In Memorium – Store Cats:
|Miles (circa 1994-2009)|
(joined store in 2004; d. 2014)
(joined store in 2009;d. 2014)
Miles was our first store cat who joined us in 2001 and passed away in 2009. He was approximately 7 years old when joined our family and despite being FIV positive he lived a good 15 years!
Amber and Bob-Cat weren’t with Flights of Fantasy as long as Miles. Both were lovable and welcomed our customers with a head nug and a purr. They came to us as adults: Amber in 2004 and Bobcat in 2009. Bob-Cat had some injuries and Amber later developed cancer. Bob-Cat passed away at his station near the cash register watching over us until the very end!
|Bob Too Perry|
Then came Bob Too! Bob Too was a feral cat rescued by an FoF customer and joined the store in 2015. In addition to being FIV positive, Bob Too came to us with a broken tail, untreated hematomas in his ears which caused them to whither, missing teeth, and long hair that was totally matted. Well, he got shaved, neutered, de-wormed, de-flead, and now he is DELIGHTFUL! Taking his station at the register, Bob Too is here to welcome our customers and continue the tradition of providing a special home to cats with special needs.
|Bob Too is sometimes awake to greet you!|
Deciding that Bob Too needed a furry companion of his own, we worked with the local cat rescue group Kitten Angels to find the most recent member of the Flights of Fantasy family - Harmony!
Harmony. who joined store in 2015, is also an FIV-positive cat. Companionship is important for cats too! Harmony is very loving, every inch the lady, and the purrfect match for our little lord of the manor, Bob Too! Unfortunately, Bob Too kept eating her food and she began to lose weight. So, a loving and loyal Flights of Fantasy customer stepped up and took Harmony in, where she thrives as a mouser extraordinaire!
Harmony: "Yes, you may kiss my paw."
