well let’s first introduce the new foster arrivals at Planet Kitty. i’ve been dropping little teasers about them and here they finally are and boy howdy are they precious!! Introducing, the Golden Girls!
i picked these gals up earlier today, and when they were handed to me, not only was it apparent that they have some sort of upper respiratory going on, but that they weren’t eight weeks yet either. (often times when i meet these peeps, i want to give them a lecture about spaying/neutering their cats so that this doesn’t continue to happen, but that only tends to irritate them, and i haven’t figured out yet how to get the info across. not to mention the fact that they kept the male of the litter as well :S)
these little lovelies came from Grand Junction where there’s still a “country folk” mentality when it comes to cats and dogs. “country folk” is the only way i know how to put it. very frustrating.
anways, back to the beauties…i know i can just hear you all grumbling, “where’s the pictures?” lol ok ok!
while down in GJ picking up the browns, i also picked up some Lysine and am giving it to these four to see if it won’t help with their little colds, URIs. they are skinny, scared, and probably stressed too as they didn’t have much of an appetite tonight. Blanche, seemed the healthiest of them all, and wasn’t sneezing or had watering eyes. she also was very playful and definitely had more meat on her bones than the other two. they are all tucked in now, with tons of pillows, soft places, and food and water. i will just let them chill for tonight and check on them first thing in the morning.
btw i wanna say a big THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO DONATED TO ELLIOT’S CHIP IN!! the good news is he doesn’t have to have an enema tomorrow and is ok until we follow up with our regular vet on tuesday to see what she thinks about it all. and if there’s anything else that should be done. meanwhile, i keep applying water to the poor guy’s little bum.
and as i mentioned, i think somewhere earlier. a foster backed out on me on their commitment to the Brown’s and so now i have them as well! one of them was adopted, but i have the 3 of them that were left. oh and btw, abby is not a girl but a boy! and so i name HIM Aidan. i feel it’s the least of what i should be able to do since i now am fostering a total of NINE kittens. yeesh! here are a few pics of the browns.
and remember this little guy? Teddy? well he’s been in isolation here, and will be retested end of this week to see if he still comes up positive for FeLV. i don’t think he will. the little booger has been puttin’ in weight and looks good! i could be wrong tho. i have news on him end of the week. PROMISE!
i’m so tired, and my own critters, specially the dogs, are feeling the neglect of the last few days….they’re paying back for it right now by ruffhousing…get it? RUFFHOUSING? ok yeah i know…corny. time for me to go to bed. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!
