Autobiography of a Former Shelter Cat

My newest castle guest

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Well, well, well—my humans clearly are not listening to me when I slap my paws, with claws out, down and say “NO MORE”!! Good grief! Mom L’s office door is closed these days more than it is open. I know Katie goes in at night with the introoder guest is in her cage so’s Mom L can open her door for some fresh air. And oh my cat! Does she ever need fresh air with this one!

Nothing like good ole’ diarrhea to stink up my castle! Yuk! Moving on—this is Carmelita. Our latest foster through our organization Delta View Cats. Mom L and Dad P are co-founders. Our organization will cover all her medical and other costs through to her adoption.

She was starving and filthy when my wonderful pet sitter, Miss Kandi, found her at one of her nightly feeding stations by our harbor.

This kitty jumped into Miss Kandi’s car like she was never gonna leave. And when she was offered food, she did a face plant in it!!! So Miss Kandi called Mom L and Dad P and they said “bring her to us”. We helped her get cleaner with a dry shampoo bath but we knew right away that she had a serious diarrhea problem—it was like puddles and weird color and so smelly! YUK!

So off to the Kitchen Clinic she went the very next day so my pal Doc Josie and her sidekick Miss Gemma could get her FeLV tested (negative), vaccinated with her first FVRCP, started on deworming and treated for fleas. This girl was so patient, not bothered with all the poking and prodding. Just a little sweetheart. She is about one year old, already had kittens at some time and not spayed. (That will happen very soon).

 

You can see in the early photos how thin she was and dirty and very sad looking. She weighed only 6 pounds and 6 ounces when she arrived her twelve days ago. She is very lanky, her legs are so long! She has some growing up to do, don’t ya think?

Now, she weighs 7 pounds and 9 ounces!! And with a couple of changes in her wet and dry food diet, and some different meds and a daily  probiotic, her poop is looking better and smelling lots less yucky!

Carmelite loves to be cuddled, held and likes to play.

Carmelita will be spayed as soon as we can find a low cost spay clinic for her. Then she will go to adoptions through our pal Community Concern For Cats. I’ll be sure to keep my readers updated on her progress.

When belly rubs are safe

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

Sometimes we kittehs just don’t like to have out bellies touched and other times, we just totally luvluvluv it! Katie used to let Mom L and Dad P give her lots and lots of belly rubs when she was first with us. You remember we rescued her from a terrible hoarding situation when she was only about five months old. By the time she was about nine months old she was really getting the hang of making her tummy available for belly rubs.

Sadly, Katie stopped letting Mom L give her those belly rubs a couple of years ago. No reason, she just stopped once she left the confines of Mom L’s office where she lived for a couple of months to get further socialized after we adopted her. Sweet girl, no one wanted her ‘cuz she was so shy. She was adopted twice and returned both times. That’s when Mom L and Dad P said “she isn’t going anywhere else again. She is ours.”

So you can imagine how excited Mom L was yesterday when Katie let her give her lots of belly rubs for like five minutes!!

Katie let her rub her up and down her whole underside and she even posed for some photos and never rolled over and ran away like she has been doing.

Can you tell that Katie hasn’t grown much bigger than she was in 2018? She is still a little kitty compared to me at ten pounds and TKS at twelve pounds. KK is a petite seven pounds.

Hope you enjoyed seeing Katie let Mom L give her belly rubs.
