So I got some updates this weekend …
Tess and Sloan were adopted together! By twins!! At least a family with twin girls who are very excited to have twin kittens. 😉
And Charlie was adopted! Sadly, not with Chaplin but with a family that fell in love with him.
Jellybean had his vet followup. Unfortunately, it sounds like his meds are long term. That’ll cut his adoption chances. 😦 At least his progress is good enough that I can reduce his dosage. But it sounds like he’ll have to have a small dose forever, unless it can be determined — for certain — that his allergy is to chicken. Apparently with this medicine, if you take the cat off and it relapses, you have to start all over again with the full dose. The really unfortunate part is that he hates — really hates — the medicine. I’ve read that you can put it in food so if I can find something he loves enough, maybe I can try that. I don’t understand why drug companies would make a usually long term medication taste so bad. I was doing some online reading and all cats seem to hate it. So dumb.
Luckily the vet didn’t seem worried about his knock-knees.
Bella has been put on the transfer list. We’re hoping to find her a home were she won’t get bullied and where her foster can really work on her socialization. Here, she spends most of her time hiding from Murphy and, to a lesser extent, Cookie or in isolation to keep her safe.
Finally, Cookie and Jonesy have become friends. No more hissing or avoidance. In fact, they play tag together! It’s very good for him since she can jump wherever he can; he’s used to being able to start something with Murphy and then cut it short when he jumps up high somewhere to gloat. Now, the game ends when Cookie says it ends. 😉
