A photo kind’a post

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

It’s been a “hodge-podge” kind’a week here in my castle. Remember my newest castle introoder guest, Bart?

Mom L spent most of Friday taking him to emergency. He was walkin’ around Friday morning like a tripod cat—not good! Bart hated being in the garage and he cried and cried and thrashed in his cage. He apparently had injured his right front “wrist”. He has a clearly painful soft tissue injury and is now on anti-inflammatory meds and pain meds. He is finally lookin’ a teeny bit better today, Monday. We moved him into Dad P’s office. Mom L has sweet Carmelita in hers, and Carmelita was spayed on last Thursday! Sheesh—what a couple’a days that was!!

So this post is easy peasey. I have some recent photos I thought you might enjoy.

The photo above was taken this very afternoon. And yes, that is my tail wrapped around Katie’s bottom! We shared our afternoon nap in this spot.

Lousy lighting, but this is Katie’s new afternoon resting place lately. She loves the sun as much as I have always loved it.

This is me after a long day at the vet’s office. My arty-right-us is getting worse in my left front leg so’s Mom L and Dad P wanted me to have some pictures taken of my leg, shoulder and neck. I’ll let you know what’s up once we get some answers. Likely, it’s just old age!!

And Sage, the ever hopeful dinner guest. Just waiting for Mom L or Dad P to toss her something off their plates when Dad P grills chikhen!1

That’s it from me this week. Let me know if you have any questions. Hope all of you are doin’ great!

One castle guest TOO MANY!!

HIYA!!   SAVANNAH HERE!!!

You know that I have already put my paws down about all these castle nuisances guests arriving at who knows what time of the night!! You remember I even did a Friday Meme about this, right??

And sadly for me, in my fifteenth year of life—NO ONE LISTENS TO ME!! AAIIIEEEEEEEE!!!!

Ok, glad I got that off my chest. You know kitties, it is never acceptable for our humans to bring into our castles some uninvited guest! Don’t you agree? That said, as I suggested in my latest Friday Memes post, Mom L and Dad P have yet another castle guest to my once peaceful domain. And even worse!! He’s a BOY cat not neutered!!! YIKES!!! He howls/yowls all day and all night. Thank Ceiling Cat I am hard of hearing. Mom L goes to bed with ear plugs!

This boy cat arrived mid week last week, and he so sucked up to my sweet Miss Kandi, my beloved pet sitter, that she just had to call Mom L and ask if Mom L wanted to take him in. BUMMER!! Mom L said—ahhhh…sure. She knew this guest was gonna upset my our peaceful castle.

He jumped into Miss Kandi’s cat and would not leave!

Thankfully, Mom L got him into the Kitchen Clinic last week so he got his vaccinations and flea treatment. But he still needs a “snip and tuck” if you know what I mean???!!! Doc Josie thinks he is about ten months to fourteen months old. Guess what he weighs???? For a youngster, this boy cat is already hitting ELEVEN POUNDS!! And he is NOT fat!! YIKES!! He has room to grow!!!

So’s the only place I would allow him to be housed is in my castle dungeon garage. I directed Mom L to leave the fan on in my laundry room, net to the garage, so’s I don’t have to hear him yowling his despair about being in a cage. Yes, that’s right. He is in a nice comfy 42 inch cage with toys and all he could ask for. I am not, after all, running some B&B for dumped abandoned community cats!!! (ummm…maybe that is a bit strong to say??)

You can see as he poses next to a 36 inch cage, that even as a young adult, Bart, yes Dad P named him, is a tall boy!!

Bart loves to play but even more he loves being pet and showered with attention. He will be neutered within the next week if we can find a vet hospital that will so that quickly. Thankfully, our city of Pittsburg has given us an allowance for spay/neuter even at regular veterinarian hospitals. But there is a long wait list to get him in for that surgery.

If any of my readers know anyone living in Northern California, San Francisco bay area, please do share this post. Bart is available for adoption through our partners at Community Concern For Cats. Contact Mom L: rodgerslcr at gmail dot com

Hard to believe anyone left Bart behind. He has not yet met any visitor from whom he doesn’t just love receiving pets.

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.

PAW PATS, SAVANNAH
