holly sat on krista's lap today and ate half a can of food..so that's good. she doesn't look so freaked out tonight..anxious yes but not loonie tunes. i tried to feed her on my dinner break but she wasn't too interested and i didn't have time to sit with her on my lap so i will try again later when i get home.
more new incoming..i said "not now" to two dogs and yes to two others...one is an old beat up dog i saw at the shelter when i picked up kobe...looks like shane with bad skin and a lot of hard miles on him. i pick him up on thursday and will drop him right off at the vets for an overnight for bloodwork and neuter the next day. oh and this dogs name is apparently "Oden."
the other (no name dog) i went and saw on my break today and if i had any more tears left in me, i would have cried. she is a homely black shep/whatever cross..by her teeth, she looks about 10 yrs old...but maybe she is older..some really old dogs have decent teeth. anyway..this poor dog has starved. i don't mean she has missed a few meals..i mean this is without a doubt the worst case of starvation that i have personally ever seen. the staff warned me before i saw her that she was as bad as trooper..but i never saw trooper in real life, just on TV.
anyway, once i saw her there was no way i wasn't taking her in..i will pick her up tomorrow after holly's vet check and i have already booked her vet appointment for thursday morning.
the other new incoming are a brother and sister set of 3 yr old cats. unfortunately for them, i think somewhere in their past they received an FIV vaccine cuz both of them are testing positive now. we do have a couple of true FIV cats at saints but most of them are false vaccine related positives. the problem of course is you can't really tell which is which so it really reduces their adoptability in traditional shelters and it puts these cats at very risk for unnecessary euthanization. anyway..again...can't let a couple of 3 yr old cats die cuz we developed a REALLY stupid vaccine that brands them for life as positive for the very disease they were vaccinated against.
