This and that.....

Let's see - we got lots of odds and ends.....

1. Mom has seen Allie a few times now. So we told her to get it together and get some food and water out for the girl. Allie was hanging out under a parked car when mom got home one night and was on the sidewalk yesterday morning. We weren't sure she was going to come back around, but it looks like we inherited kittens and our very own feral cat. :) Mom is starting to think about shelter for the winter.

2. Fast food kitten update: the shelter called and the boys had a weird variation of calici (no mouth ulcers, which is a major sign). So, everything got thrown in the washer and was washed in HOT (again - just to be sure - mom cleans after each group leaves)!!! Mom is being pretty vigilant with the outlaws since they had been hanging with the boys. We does have a question for you all though.....does anyone know if the FVRCP is a live virus vaccine? The outlaws haven't been vaccinated yet and mom isn't sure if she should do it now or wait a little bit longer.

3. Silver was.....ADOPTED!!! She went home last night with another gray kitten from another litter who is about 2 weeks younger. They will have an older sister in their new home who is about a year old.

4. Head count: mom thinks she finally has it on the new bunch - 4 boys and 2 girls. We think she keeps changing her mind and doesn't really know what she is talking about....  MOL

don't know what I had to go to the v-e-t...nothing wrong with ME!!

5. But, we suppose you really want the v-e-t report from last night. :)  Well.....the v-e-t wasn't very sure and was glad mom brought a brother for comparison (mom brought him for company, but whatever works). They ended up taking x-rays. Seems our tiny boy's knee caps are not where they are supposed to be (completely luxated on both sides). Stranger still is that his humerous bone (thigh bone) doesn't complete into the knee joint - it didn't form right. Of course, the v-e-t wondered what caused it - malnutrition, birth defect, whatever. Mom is more concerned about how we FIX it. The tiny boy weighs about 14 ounces (eep - the cute). It would be a surgical fix and mom is concerned cause he is tiny. So, mom is gonna talk to the head rescue lady tonight about the next step. It won't be cheap whatever it is, but for now it certainly doesn't bother him....he gets around great, just looks a little funny doing it.

The kid went with mom so that grandma could run some errands and go to the gym. :)


  1. So glad to here Silver was adopted! And with another kitty! Double yay!

  3. WE are glad that Silver found a home too. And she will have someone to play with, that is even better.
    Interesting about the little one.Guess it wouldn't get any better as he gets older but can they wait til he is a little bigger before doing surgery. Bet we can get some of the money for the surgery. Keep us posted.

  4. Congrats on Silver being adopted. In regards to the cat virus I have no idea since we dont have any kittehs.
    Sounds like things are moving in the right direction.
    I LOVE the pic of the girl and kitteh!

  5. How nice for Silver and the other kitty who found a forever home.
    Poor little guy. I hope they can help him

  6. That is great news about Silver and her new furblings! We're sure she'll have lots of fun at her forever home. :)
    If the surgery isn't urgent, it can probably wait until the boy is a little older - will it complicate matters if the surgery is delayed?

  7. YEA, Silver!!!
    That last picture is just over the top cute!
    Play bows,

  8. FVRCP is usually modified live.. but it would be best to check with whomever purchased it to be sure. Generally it is a good idea to wait until everyone is very healthy to give a vaccine since it is a challenge to the immune system and you want that as good as possible when it happens. If they haven't caught the calci yet, chances are they got it and were able to fight off the infection, it happens way more then you'd know.

    yea for silver!

    how bizarre about the bones.. sorry about going to the v e t little boy, but us silly humans just need to know what is going on..

  9. was about to comment but Connie covered the question. We'll be all ears to learn about the knees and what next.

  10. Hoorah for Silver! Great news!!

    I am just learning about this calici virus!! I hope to get more info from when we see the vets next week!

    Take care

  11. Great news that Silver was adopted! And getting fur siblings to boot!

  12. Wow, there must be kitties everywhere you look!

    Thank you for stopping by my blog & leaving birthday wishes :)

    Nubbin wiggles,

  13. Great news about Silver being adopted.

  14. Great news on Silver! Hopefully all will turn out okay with the baby.

  15. Way to go, Silver kitteh. Even better, she gets a partner in crime to play (plot?) with. Enjoy your furrever home, both of you.

  16. Silver being adopted was wonderful! And the update was so welcome. I always want to know what is going on with everyone when you have the time.

  17. Poor little boy and his malformed bones!!! We hope there is something that can be done to help him. He is so adorable :-)

  18. Our mom is soooo happy to hear Silver was adopted (she was definitely a fave since she shared a name with one of my kitties now gone over the bridge).

    Hopefully the little guy can be fixed or manage with his unique anatomy.

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku (Mom Eileen)
