Kit Katie’s Challenges
HIYA!! SAVANNAH HERE!!!
I’m just gonna step up right here and right now. I don’t want Kit Katie to live here anymore. I don’t care how much she tries to win me over. Ain’t happening folks, not one teensy bit. And The Kid Sage pretty much feels the same, sort’a.
So I am gonna turn this blog post over to Mom L.
Hi everyone, Mom L here.
We are indeed having troubling times with our two resident adult cats, Savvy who is a senior at thirteen years old and Sage who is middle aged at seven years old. They hiss, snarl at Katie, which we understand is cat speak for “not on my turf kid”!! And yes, we had Katie separate for about five months when she was first with us, and with Lilly. We do know how to introduce a new kitty.
But doing so with our two grouchy girls has been so stressful for Katie, she developed conjunctivitis and kitty chin acne. And, no, we do not feed nor water with plastic anything.
And this is what she really looks like because her eye drains constantly now.
Two vet checks later, and they believe she has a scared tear duct in her right eye which means this draining discoloration forever. As if her limp in her right front leg wasn’t enough to hold her back from being adopted.
Finally, Sunday, Community Concern For Cats, at no cost, allowed us to have Katie’s front legs/shoulders to be X-rayed. And yes, our good friend and feline expert retired Veterinarian Miss Josie found that Katie does indeed have an abnormality in her right shoulder joint. It doesn’t have the smooth joint connect that her left does. Another detriment to potential adopters, but at least now we have proof that she isn’t suffering, has adapted well and runs, plays and loves life even with this itty bitty bump!
Katie is only isolated to my very lovely office enclosure at night. She likes to have a bit of privacy and we need to sleep. We have her out as soon as she has her brekkies and she has come to join us on the bed with the other two snarky girls!
Katie literally begs them to accept her and allow her to snuggle, play with them.
and then this…
More simply got her a hiss from TKS…
Katie has discovered that she can have her long morning nap right near Savvy, on the outside of Savvy’s favorite tent. TKS used to grab this spot but Katie gets there faster even with her limp!! MOL!!!
Dad P and I thank all of you for believing that Kit Katie, sweet KK, has already found her forever home. However, we know that for her to live her entire life with us (and she will likely outlive us) means that she never again knows that warmth of snuggling with another kitty as she did with Lilly. She never again knows the joy of chasing and “ressling” with another kitty. Her life will be lived by half.
Katie retires to the stairs to look down on family nights, with Savvy next to me on the couch and Sage next to Dad P on his recliner chair. Katie has no place to spend time with us in this family routine. Oh yes, we try and we try, but it isn’t happening.
Dad P and I ask that any of you who are willing, please help us help precious Kit Katie find her much needed forever home. She has earned it, she deserves it.
You can find Kit Katie’s profile at the following links:
Please don’t ever think that we don’t love this very special survivor kitten. What she endured from birth until the time we rescued her from her horrific hoarding situation is unthinkable. All we care about is her ability to live a joyful life as she so deserves. Sharing her with any of your friends, relatives, contacts, etc. in the San Francisco Bay Area is greatly appreciated.
Show Katie’s badge on your blog with great pride.
Dad P and I appreciate you hangin’ around to read this blog post.
