a thread for crazy cat ladies! I thought maybe just pics of your own cats, and if there's not enough then just any old cat you can find!

I have 8. Technically only 5 are mine, the others think they live here. Mostly because I feed them with everybody else and they never seem to leave!

Egads! I'm on a team at the shelter that handles applications for foster cats. Today they posted not one, but four kittens. We have been slammed with applications. There haven't been many kittens this year, so they're in really high demand. To make it worse, I've been on leave for 2 months after hurting myself and can barely remember what I'm supposed to do.

Quick update:

Annie may still have surgery, it would be tomorrow if so. The vet is on the fence about it, and I get it.

Stevie is the one w/ blood in her stool. I was scooping the litterboxes and she wanted to play in the box I was scooping and then needed to poop. So I thought I'd wait, and then scoop her fresh poop only yikes, yeah she's the one w/ blood in her stool. I called the vet and he had me bring the sample in since it was fresh enough.

I'm sure there will be more updates tomorrow.

edj3 your vet sounds amazing, glad there's no rushing surgery until as much info as possible suggests that is needed. Also glad you all are financially able to handle the bills. Sounds like kitties are meant to be with you for sure, so they get the love and care needed.

Our vet just called and said Squeakers has pneumonia. She's going to start him on 2 antibiotics and do repeat x-rays in 2 weeks. He is FIV + so it's pretty worrisome. We're not sure exactly how old he is. Somewhere around 12 we think. He was our 2nd foster failure.

Wren I hope Squeakers responds well to the antibiotics. I hate that darn FIV. We had a wonderful cat that had it and he did very well until older, then a lot of infections to treat.

Edj3 - good investigating!

Our vet asked if we were going to keep the name when we adopted him. Then he squeaked for her and she understood. He can convey more by squeaks than if he meowed. Sometimes he has a silent meow. You can tell from his mouth that he said meow, but with no sound at all.

Squeakers is a nightmare to give meds to. Definitely has to be burrito wrapped and then it's hard to get his mouth open. It would sure help if he wore lipstick. Finding the mouth on a resistant black cat is a project.

Oh Wren44, that would be a pain! Fortunately Annie is a growing kitten who's always ravenous so I crush her little pill and mix it with a tiny bit of her canned food. She gets that first and when it's gone, she gets the rest of her canned food. Two more doses for her. She's still got the prolapse, hoping that as the parasites leave her body, she doesn't need to strain so much.

We won't know if the injection worked for Stevie's Aleria parasite until we get a stool sample again. The bloody stools are nearly gone, so I'm hopeful.

Had an interesting time last night with Grace. She likes to sleep on my lap under a blanket in the Fall. So there she was on my lap sleeping and Nugget jumped up and laid on my legs and put his head on her side and fell asleep. She never even stirred while he was there.

Annie has one more day of parasite meds (so in her soft food tonight). Thankfully she doesn't care there's a mashed up half a pill in her gravy, she just gobbles it all up and then we give her the rest of the soft food. She's still having episodes of prolapse so if that continues through the end of the week, we'll call the vet again and see if there's anything else to try before opting for surgery. She doesn't seem to suffer in the least when it's popped out and bloody although she complains mightily when we smear the ointment on. Guessing it stings and also I wouldn't want someone putting stuff on my butt either.

Stevie is also doing well. We won't know for sure that the tapeworm shot did the trick until we collect and haul in stool samples from all four cats, probably next week.

These kittens make us both laugh and in today's world, that is a very good thing.
