sydney is a senior tabby and white female with bad ears, bad teeth and drinks far too much water. nice cat, started chowing down on fancy feast before she even got out of the carrier. i so like cats with good appetites..their adjustment periods are much easier on me.
milo is a senior shitz cross with bad eyes, bad ears, bad teeth, no hair and a very distended belly...he looks very cushingoid to me and i have already discovered that he absolutely LOVES fresh blueberries and whip cream.
charlie is a smaller senior blonde collie cross, she is shaved with a puppy face (so cute!!!) and she has a mass on her tail, bad teeth, bad ears, open and fungating tumours on her nipples and she much prefers cheese stix to blueberries.
i have booked all three for vet checks/bloodwork on thursday cuz all of them need surguries pretty darn soon.
speaking of vet checks..today was tess and merry's re-check day. i stopped and bought them breakfast at mcdonalds but merry ate both hers and tess's so i had to share mine with tess or she wouldn't have gotten any.
merry had fewer mites upon scraping so that is good...she stays on the baytil and ivermectin and gets re-checked again in 3 weeks.
tess's elbow wound is slowly closing in but she also stays on baytril and we will try manuka honey to help heal her wound. her next recheck is in a couple of weeks. the better that tess feels, the more she bosses me around...carol...i want this... i want that..open the door... let me in, now let me out.
apparently she needs her own personal slave.
lucky has been leaking urine lately so today i trimmed up her back end, combed out the matts and gave her a good clean and tidy up job. she really seemed to enjoy it...she probably was a human in a previous life who understood the pleasantries of the spa day stuff...except like me she hates pedicures..they totally piss her off.
a fellow stopped by today with his 10 yr old rotti...he is leaving the province in a week. he has tried several of the other shelters and the timing is bad...animals are being diverted to other shelters right now because of a number of things. i sent him away with a couple of other possible places to try but i suspect i will be hearing from him again. he has had lainey since she was a puppy..she seems like a really nice dog....still i hope he can find some place for her besides here.
hope floats til it....
help!..i am being buried alive in all of their hope...sucks to be ever helpful, hopeful me.
