Our 2 surgeries yesterday went well.
David Morgan our new kitten with the lip droop is all sewed up and the lip looks good--back in place where it should be. He has pretty blue sutures around his lower incisors helping to hold the tissue in place. And then a button under his chin holding the wire in place that holds the gum line in place. He will sport that wire for 2-3 weeks. I wonder if the person who tossed this kitten out of the car even wondered about how he would land on his face? Makes me wonder. But....no matter. He is here and is safe. This is one exceptionally sweetie pie of a kitten. He almost turns himself inside out to be petted! Such a gorgeous dark orange boy. David Morgan is already up in the Main Area.
Rowland had his ear hematoma repaired too yesterday. No tubes, so that is good. He has many sutures in the ear to keep it flat. His e-collar is removed and he went back to his Covie land this morning. He's much happier there! We will take his sutures out in 12 days. He received a good grooming before going back to the Cove.
This morning the door to both Thumper's Room was opened and the 7 new kittens in the back made their way up to the Main Area. They are doing good but will be put back in the Thumper's Room for the rest of the day. Then tomorrow we will do it again! And they now have names! Lots of kitty names to remember.
Kukisi--female, white and black
Valentine-- male, black, long fur
Denise--female, grey, long fur
Darzin--male, grey tiger, medium fur
Shelly--female, brown tiger
Sheila--female, brown tiger
Is your head spinning on all these names?! All but one name is from the Name a Cat list. Shelly and Sheila are identical so Sheila has a clip on the end of her fur on tail to make a "flat tail" to be able to tell the difference of these two girls.
We had BOXES last night. We are so very grateful to you for your help!
