Thursday, May 12

Our 3 surgery cats did just fine! Abe, Asha and Felicity made the trip. Big thanks to Donna and Larry for being our transport people!  

Abe had his upper 2 canines removed--both were fractured. According to the x-rays, it looks like he might've had a fracture of his lower jaw at some point. This must have been in his first year of life, as his past mama had him since he was about a year old and nothing was on his record from her in regards to a jaw fracture.  But....the fracture is fine--has healed nicely and causes no trouble. Except.....he now needs additional kisses a day to make up for his discomfort when this happened! He told me he required that!  Good Abey Baby boy.

Asha had just one extraction--a lower premolar on her right side. She also had a little tartar removed. She did just great.

Vivienne also did just fine. Her FHO (femoral head ostectomy) was done. Dr. Darcy said nothing more was needed other than the removal of that femoral head---everything else looked good!  She will be on cage rest a few days, then will be out and about under some supervision. Exercise is good for that hip. She's been napping quite a bit since her return. And that is ok.

We had BOXES last night!! We are grateful people here for your help!

The heap of kittens in the back Thumper's Room have lost 2 of their pools---they have graduated to blankets and rugs! They simply don't "stay put" anymore! All 3 mamas are wonderful, but Chloe is especially willing to help any and all of the kitties to a meal! Reeves likes to make flying leaps. The 5 white babies are getting to be stronger walkers. Violet the white kitten that was wobbly is better--barely any wobbles noticed! Ozzie still has wild hair! Genevieve is so pretty.

Monday when we have our surgery day, we will bring the 3 mamas and all their kitties up to the Kitty Kabana room.  We will close the door, the cat door and the window so they have the entire room to themselves. They will have some fun! 

38 more days till Catathon! Oh my goodness---it's getting closer! We are so excited and have been working hard on this event. Fun times coming! 

Remember to keep those shoes a'walkin'---we need the miles for ResQwalk!

Samson Wolf is in a home!!  I felt that he was having a little issue again with his tail and poo.  So, to keep track, I had to put him in a double condo pen. He was ok there, but he wanted OUT OUT OUT!!  But with him being out, I couldn't track his poo.  What a delimna. So.....he is with a friend of mine. She has no other cats, wanted to help, he can be in the whole house and she and he are very happy with this arrangement!   All is good. He likes to lounge on the back of the couch. I have a strong feeling he will be a keeper. He's a wonderful boy---so full of sweetness and love.
