saints welcomes "shilo" a BEAUTIFUL 11 yr old siamese girl taken to the vet for euth for litter box issues. geez we have taken in a lot of animals lately for the number one reason for animals losing their homes....incontinence issues inside the home.
anyway shilo is lovely, i hope she does well here.
new influx of FeLV cats from the recent shelter seizure coming this week. we passed the spca inspection, no concerns, no suggestions for improvement (she said she was impressed...whew.) we have purchased large collapsible cages to house 5 positive cats during their isolation period. we also set up (this is sad) a lidded 4x4 xpen for a FeLv positive mom and her 5-4 week old babes. most of the kittens will probably be positive but we can't begin to test them til 6 months of age (unless they show symptoms earlier.) once mom is done nursing, we will move her to the FeLv area and keep the babes in a separate area (sigh, which we have to build, we are ALWAYS reno'ing something around here!) until we test to see who is sick and who is free from the virus. most of any positive babes will probably not live to see their first year...this virus is quick and deadly in the little ones....some of the babes might be naturally immune tho....hope floats til it sinks.
we bought them an apparently $65 (but on sale for $25) barbie bed, super cute and a very cool kitten jungle gym..these kittens may be sick, but they never will be wanting for anything to have some fun for whatever time they have.
my back is still sore and i am currently suffering from chest pain because phoebe is an absolute and total cow and i just about killed myself while chasing her out of my house. she was sleeping on a shelf, did her moray eel thing and shot out, grabbed maude by the ear, knocked over the shelf and the TV which landed on lexi...do you even want to guess how pissed off i was at her? (lexi and maude are fine) i hope she is freezing her prissy, bitchy, selfish and paranoid little butt off by the front door and i am not letting her in til my chest pain goes away.
i asked the spca manager to please seize her from my care, she declined, ratz..i bet i am stuck with that dog for the next 15 years....if she does end up killing me one day...i hereby leave her in my will to tammy. you guys are my witnesses.
