Random Fridays....

So Licorice has been out and about more. She was supposed to be spayed last Friday, but that didn't happen. She still has some hot spots from chewing. She is on another round of antibiotics. Mom has a cone but is hoping she won't have to make Licorice wear it. Licorice is still a little growly with everyone here....and mom puts her in the bathroom at night (mainly cause mom is afraid Licorice will get in the bedroom at night and not come out).

Well, she has one spot that looks much worse. Mom tried to put the cone on her this morning. So far the score is Licorice - 1, Mom - 0.

Mom says we are pretty good with her.....Licorice is now over 6 pounds - which is 2 pounds over where she was when we found her. So it is all good. Just gotta get her spayed and get her available for adoption.

So an update on Nasa/Hubble and Orbit at the shelter.
Mom noticed a new sign on their cage Tuesday night. It pretty much said that they think that the Science Diet fed at the shelter appears to not agree with their stomachs and that they should eat something different once they are adopted but it is too hard to feed separate diets at the shelter.

Pffffftttttt.....  Mom is afraid the sign may scare people off. And she also thinks it is more Nasa than Orbit. Mom wants to add her own sign "and I wouldn't feed them Science Diet anyhow".

We may have some exciting adoption news on Monday. Oh, and we put a teaser on facebook about a newbie and didn't follow up - mom says it has been one of those weeks....stay tuned.  :)


  1. I don't know if it would be appropriate for what Licorice has, but have you tried cocoanut oil?

  2. one of those weeks? I can relate, it's been one here too! I hate using those cones, seems like torture device more than anything.

  3. Sounds like Licorice is starting to do a little better. Too bad another spot came up.
    My cats won't touch Science diet.
    Have a great day.

  4. Aw, poor Licorice! (Yes, Bellen's right, you should join the coconut revolution! lol It does a lot of good, seriously) Fingers crossed for adoptions, and new food for those babies...

  5. You darlings. Licorice please get well so you can have our ladygardenectomy.

  6. So much going on! Can't wait to hear

  7. Adoptions? hurrah!!!

    What about an inflatable blue collar for Licorice?

  8. We hope that spot clears up soon. And Licorice can be spayed before she gets on the prowl...again. ;)
    Mommy doesn't have a good opinion of Science Diet.

  9. Purring for all spots to heal soon! And we agree with not feeding Science Diet. Bleh, bleh. Purrs...

  10. We hopes Licorice gets all better soon so she can find her furever home.

    Science Diet doesn't sound yummy to us!

    Mom is looking forward to hearing about the newbie. Have a great weekend, efurrybody!

  11. Nooooo, not the cone!!! MOL.

    Totally agree with you about the Science Diet garbage food (and I used that term "food" loosely).

  13. MOL about the Science Diet comment - we are in full agreement over here!

  14. Good luck with Licorice! We hope her spots get better so she can get spayed.

  15. We don't like the cone, either, so we don't blame Licorice one bit.

    Great comment about Science Diet. We hope that someone who has the same opinion sees their sign and adopts them into a forever home.

  16. Hope Licorice's hot spots get better so she can get spayed and get on with her life and search for a furever home. Good luck to Hubble and Orbit. Maybe your mom can sneak some other food to them. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Guilietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  17. Love the name Licorice. Poor girl, having to wear the cone of shame. Hopefully her hot spots get better soon.

    Has the vet suggested possible food allergies?

  18. We sure hope Licorice's hot spots clear up!
    Play bows,

  19. Ugh cones... they're the worst. I avoid if at all possible. They always look so sad with them on too, lol.


We love to hear from you.....
