Hi there! Long time no talk! Unfortunately I was away from my computer for 3 weeks due to some medical tests, and visiting family! I’m back now with a vengeance, and I can’t wait to share all the fun things that I have been thinking about and working on!
First though, I think it is due time for another update on those little kittens! They have grown so much! The boy (Brother) and bigger girl (Coraline) are literally twice the size since I left. The little runt (Madeline) has also gotten a lot bigger! She is thriving and keeping up with her bigger brother and sister. It really is amazing to see how far she has come.This is Coraline!
Dexter has become so attached to them, it is really sweet. He loves to play and cuddle. I’m so proud of him for being such a great big brother! He’ll cry if he can’t get to them, and he runs around just like he’s a kitty too!
Before I left, each kitten was tested for feline leukemia and AIDS, and all three came back negative! I was thrilled, and want to thank each and every one of you that spread the word or donated. It really helped more than you could imagine.This is Madeline!
As you can see in this picture, Madeline still has some issues with her left eye. It doesn’t seem to affect her ability to play and see, but I’ll be taking her to the vet soon just to be on the safe side. They will also be starting their first round of vaccines shortly.This is Brother (for the moment)!
We are still looking for forever homes for two of the kittens, so if you know anyone in the Atlanta area that would love to become a kitty mom or dad, that would be amazing!
That’s right folks, it’s Dexter’s 2nd birthday today! I can’t believe it has been almost 2 years since this little guy came into my life. He really is such a joy, and I’m so happy to have him!
On his last birthday I baked him a kitty friendly cupcake, only to learn later on that cats are missing the “sweet” taste buds! I felt silly, so for his 2nd birthday I bought him some fancy kitty food. He’ll also be getting a brand new climbing/scratching tower this weekend!
Am I the only one that really loves kitty birthdays, or do any of you do anything special?
Hey everyone! I wanted to update you on the kitty rescue mission. Oh what a journey it has been!
We originally were able to get the three kittens in the photo, and every day since I have been trying to catch the other two. However, these little dudes are adjusting well. They are insanely playful, love to eat and drink loads, and love to have cuddle mountain parties!
This morning I went to check on them and the little runt (the one in the middle of the picture) was very lethargic. I decided to take her (yes! it’s a girl!) to the vet just in case. While we were there, the vet prescribed her some nutrition supplement to help with weight gain, and some deworming medicine.
On a sadder note, it seems like all of the kittens have fleas. The vet gave me Capstar oral medication that will kill the adult fleas, and in the meantime we are being very careful and washing/vacuuming everything.
The next step will be testing them for FIV/kitty leukemia, and then we’ll start vaccines once they are old enough. After that it’s off to find forever homes! I’m still on the search, so if you know anyone in the Atlanta area who would love a sweet kitty, shoot me an email!
Finally, I want to take a moment to thank each and every one of you for donating or spreading the word. It has been such a journey for these little guys and it definitely doesn’t stop here. Unfortunately the flea medication took quite a chunk out of the kitty fund, so any more donations will be more than appreciated! In fact, I have a little treat up my sleeve for anyone who donated or donates in the future! Thank you again!
