double sorry about no post last night too.

I came home from work with a killer headache. it is still not gone this morning, but it is better than it was...at least for now.
anyway the only new news I have is we have a new cat. I haven't met him yet, he is still at the vets. he is a young unneutered stray found in a prickle bush with a neurogenic bladder from some kind of major trauma. the plan is to neuter and insert a urinary catheter and then keep his bladder empty for a few days. this may help restore bladder function if it isn't too late. he was found by one of the neighbors of one of our volunteers.
apparently he is a very nice and friendly cat, currently listed at our vets as "prickles" but the staff are calling "pickles" and quite frankly I am not too fond of either name but whatever.
he will be neutered, have the cath. inserted, viral tested, tattoo'd and vaccinated today and he should come home (with or without a functioning bladder) in around 4 or 5 days. hope floats the catheter works so we can find him a new home and if it doesn't, we probably permanently have a new wrecked cat.
and a slap upside the head of whoever got themselves a kitten, let him roam around outside to get hurt and never got around to neutering him...the cat says thanks a lot for screwing up his life big time.
