Back in Time!

Mondays post didn't make it to the blog, so here it is:

Monday, September 19th

There's kittens and cats everywhere! Snooglies is not as energetic today. She's sleeping more than she has been, but is eating. I weighed her and she's gained one more ounce over 3 days time. So at least we're going in the right direction. Today I'll be getting Barbra and Bandita's health records ready for their adoptions tomorrow. I've already heard from Anna Marie today. They are on the road, heading this way. The adoption itself will take place tomorrow. Anna Marie will adopt Bandita and she will be taking Barbra with her to meet up with Titan (both live in Missouri). The 3 little kittens in Thumper's Room today received their first vaccinations. They're Picasso, Shasta and Wiggles. We also took in another new kitten today. Our volunteer, Judy S., found him in her yard. This poor thing made me cry. He is so utterly thin it hurts to look at him. He's about 4-5 months old and weighs just a little over 2 pounds. He arrived with fleas but those are now gone. His first "meal" was fluids, then we started feeding him every 45 minutes, in very small quantities. He's white and buff. Judy would like to name him Caramel Nougat and call him Nougie.

Our visitors from Missouri have arrived home safely. Anna Marie & Eric came Monday night for a visit and then stayed at one of the local motels. Yesterday morning they returned to officially adopt Bandita. It was love at first sight for all 3 of them! They also took Barbra who has been adopted by our Titan friends. Titans live close to Anna Marie, so they did the drop off last night. All went well. Two great adoptions. We took in a new kitten. Judy S., a volunteer, found him in her yard. His name is Nougie. He's about 4 1/2 months, but his arrival weight was that of a 2 month old. He's steadily gaining weight. He has a wonderful purr to him and loves to be held. But, he still has that "flight" instinct in him when down on the floor. So...we're working on him! Snooglies has gained another ounce. I truly wish I knew how old she is. She appears to be ancient. She loves being held, just relaxes and enjoys it. Bella's bottom abscess wound is slowly starting to heal. It's a week old already. She had a setback, but I think we're on the road to recovery now. Will take some time. We have proof now--Emaline likes the Cat Go Round Wheel! Now we need to get Asha on the wheel! Twinkle now looks like a regular cat! She also loves attention and being held. It's a pleasure to see her walking around enjoying herself.
