ME I CAN FEED, WATER AND CLEAN BOXES AND FIX MY OWN MEALS LIKE SALADS.

2017-07-21 Thread Armstrong-Brown, Sheila DDS Timonium
I am scared to get him a friend since I have 14 other cats in the house.  He is 
alone in a big area of the house.  But I am not sure if him and another cat 
would spread germs back and forth.   My cat clan is up to 28 cats.  Insane.

I have never had anyone tell me my cats needed cholesterol tested.  
i was beginning to wonder if the list was still there, had not heard anything.

Re: [Felvtalk] Checking in.....

2017-07-20 Thread Sheri Burbridge
Hi there! Things have been quiet around here but I was sincerely hoping
that meant everyone was doing really well!

Bob, I'm glad to hear little Gilbert is still with you and comfortable
despite his prognosis. How wonderful that he has had such a good home with
you during this time.

My girl Violet is doing great! She's such a character and very much a
kitten still! She killed a mouse last week (which is horrifying, I've never
seen evidence of a mouse anywhere in our house, I'm hoping it got in and
she just took care of business and there are no more!) Luckily, she didn't
eat it (and I got it before the dogs), just left it at the top of the
stairs as a good morning gift for us!

I'm glad she's doing well because our Cocker Spaniel with renal failure and
2 bad knees is enough of a challenge at the moment. I can only handle so
much at a time.

So there's my update! I hope every one is having a happy and healthy summer!

Not at all related. I have no idea why a cholesterol would even be run on a 
young kitty like that. Even with an older cat, it is seriously questionable 
whether cholesterol has any relevance.

Bob, you are a true hero to these little angels. It will absolutely hurt like 
hell when you lose your new boy, and you know that, but you are a kind soul who 
will take the pain to help these babies. Thank you for quoting me. It is 
something I have said for a long time to explain my insanity to others, 
especially my mom who couldn’t understand in the middle of all my sobbing about 
losing another one, why I continued to do this to myself.

I took home a little girl last year, who also had a diagnosis of cancer. The 
shelter where she had been staying, was closing down and she was obviously not 
adoptable. Someone at the shelter had heard of my reputation for being a sap 
for hard luck cases, so I was contacted out of the blue and asked if I would 
take her and let her live out her days sleeping on a comforter instead of in a 
shelter. I agreed. After watching her for a while, and obtaining her previous 
medical records and reviewing them, I was skeptical that she had cancer. She 
wasn’t deteriorating, but she had a whole lot of serious pain from something. 
Happily, after much running around and thousands of dollars, we had her in for 
surgery in March and a piece of tissue was removed (a remnant it appears, from 
an infected uterus which was removed) and I was so gratified to see the 
immediate change in her personality. She immediately brightened up - even 
played a bit - and started hanging around us instead of being in a poor mood 
and sleeping alone upstairs all the time. She still has pain but it has 
markedly reduced.

Every once in a while - something disastrous turns good. I am crossing my

It is had not to hate those who dump kittens and puppies.  All they ahve to do 
is get their female spayed.  Worse yet are those who use kittens and puppies to 
train pitbull fighting dogs.  We are beginning to close in on those people in 
our county, but there still remain those who say the are just dogs, cats so why 
worry about them.  That is what we have to unite against.

I'm really happy to hear from the group. Bob, you are a wonderful guardian and 
I'm so happy you have a new kitty cat to watch over - no matter for how long! 
Right now, I don't have any FeLv kitties - FIV yes. I foster and volunteer for 
a couple local rescue groups 
and it's mega kitten season. Some of my foster friends are having heartbreak 
because of the loss of babies.- while others see the tragedy of overcrowded 
animal control facilities so there is killing. One friend asked about balance - 
how does one achieve balance - keep sanity - not become numb. How does one not 
feel hatred toward one's fellow man/woman when dumped babies are found - we do 
what we do because we care and we want to make a difference - even for a little 
while. It's pretty hard sometimes to let a foster go (adopted) one you raised 
from a tiny kitten - bottle feeding, cuddling and loving. Adopters are screened 
but unless they continue to keep up correspondence the I wonder is always 
hanging in your mind. 

Siorry to ramble - guess I needed to get somethings off my mind - again Bob - 
happy tails!!

These little ones give so much more to us than we give to them.  They have kept 
me going in some dark days and been such a comfort to me.  They are worth every 
hour and penny spent.

Bob, you are a true hero to these little angels. It will absolutely hurt like 
hell when you lose your new boy, and you know that, but you are a kind soul who 
will take the pain to help these babies. Thank you for quoting me. It is 
something I have said for a long time to explain my insanity to others, 
especially my mom who couldn’t understand in the middle of all my sobbing about 
losing another one, why I continued to do this to myself.

I took home a little girl last year, who also had a diagnosis of cancer. The 
shelter where she had been staying, was closing down and she was obviously not 
adoptable. Someone at the shelter had heard of my reputation for being a sap 
for hard luck cases, so I was contacted out of the blue and asked if I would 
take her and let her live out her days sleeping on a comforter instead of in a 
shelter. I agreed. After watching her for a while, and obtaining her previous 
medical records and reviewing them, I was skeptical that she had cancer. She 
wasn’t deteriorating, but she had a whole lot of serious pain from something. 
Happily, after much running around and thousands of dollars, we had her in for 
surgery in March and a piece of tissue was removed (a remnant it appears, from 
an infected uterus which was removed) and I was so gratified to see the 
immediate change in her personality. She immediately brightened up - even 
played a bit - and started hanging around us instead of being in a poor mood 
and sleeping alone upstairs all the time. She still has pain but it has 
markedly reduced.

Every once in a while - something disastrous turns good. I am crossing my 
fingers for your new charge.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"

Just wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing? We've been very 
busy

here with the end of the school year, holidays, graduations, etc.

My Violet is doing well, she seems happy and healthy although I'm
struggling to find a healthy food that she likes. She loved the honest
kitchen food when I first bought it but now isn't very excited to eat 
it.
I'm going to check out other options at a local pet health food store 
this

week to see if I can find something she likes.

I got a tattoo for Mo about a week ago. I felt like it was the closure 
I
was looking for and the artist even let me put his ashes into the ink. 
I
know he is always with me now but I'm still very emotional about the 
whole

ordeal. It's been two months but still feels so raw.

I hope all of you and all your fur babies are doing well, I just 
wanted to
pop on and say "hey". I'm so glad to be heading towards summer and 
back in

my garden again. It keeps my mind busy and is so cathartic. We planted
catnip for Violet, she absolutely loves it! It's so funny to watch her
bliss out when she eats a leaf or two?

Best wishes,
Sheri
