Titan Follow Up

Titan here,

My new Foster Mom got me this nice sweater to keep warm after my surgery. I think I look pretty handsome in it.

Titanic Changes in The Life of a Kitty

Purrsia here,

In the 10 days since I last posted there have been some major changes in my life.

First Monika realized that the shelter had my sex wrong and I am actually a boy kitty, so she and Bob changed my name to Darius.

Next, I had my surgery and they found out I got my hernia because some mean person had kicked me and they caused some internal damage also, but the nice People at The Way Home that Bob and Monika foster for got me all fixed up and at the same time got me fixed.  That sound redundant to me, but I will take their word for it.

Then after my surgery, they moved me to a new foster parent that is also fostering a kitten that is about my age so we can both have a playmate that is our own size.

Then finally because of all the Titanic trouble I have already gone through in my short life, they decided to change my name again.  My new name is Titan.

Our New Foster Needs Help

Meet Purrsia,

Orange County Animal Services contacted our cat rescue and said they had a kitten with scabies and asked if we wanted to take her in. Of course, we went out and got her. We gave her the medicine she needed and the scabies are all but gone now, but the county neglected to tell us that she also has feline herpes and a hernia. We are taking care of her herpes also, but her hernia is going to cost a minimum of $800. The Vet said depending on how hard the surgery was it could cost up to $2000.

Below is the original post from our shelters Facebook;

Our sweet rescue PURRSIA, formally Carmen A397125, from @orangecountyanimalservices needs surgery to repair a bad ingunial hernia.
Her stomach is very distended because a portion of her intestines have slipped thru the muscle causing it to create a large lump.
Unfortunately she is fighting a bad URI and needs to recover before surgery.
She a fighter.... eating and drinking well as well as still lovable and even to playing some during her discomfort. If you can donate to her surgery we would be very grateful.

New Food Part 3

Munchkin here,

The third flavor of I and Love and You, was Purrky Turkey and as with the others, Obsidian and I both loved it. I'll have to see if I can get Monika to start ordering it too.

New Med For Munchkin

Bob here,

I have been trying to find a joint health supplement for Munchkin for a while and every time I tried giving one to her, she would not touch it. This month Chewy had Cosequin Soft Chews, so I tried it. The chews are bigger than she likes, so I have to crumble them into her food, but she eats them with no fuss! She hasn't been on them long enough to tell if they are helping her, but I am so glad she at least eats these.

New Food Part 2

Munchkin here,

The next flavor we tried was Oh My Cod! and the name about says it all. Monika doesn't care much for the smell of it, but Obsidian and I love it. * paws up.

Foster Fail of a Sad Kind

Bob here,

I am very sad to have to say that we released Samantha back outside yesterday. We had decided to let her out into the bedroom seeing as she always used the litter box even if it did just have sheets of newspaper in it. When I checked on her about an hour later she had peed and pooped on our bed. Living her life closed up in our spare bathroom is no life for her and no one is going to adopt a cat that won't use the litter box correctly. So we returned her to her colony where at least we can keep watch on her and give her flea treatments and such when needed.

New Food Part 1

Munchkin here,

Chewy sent us another new food to try. The brand is I and love and you, and the flavor we tried today is chicken me out. Obsidian and I both loved it so it gets a solid 8 paws up.

Play Time For Samantha

Samantha here,

Monika brought in a stick toy for me to play with and Bob brought in the camera to film me. I was having bunches of fun, but I got a little nervous when I first saw the camera. Bob says he is sorry it is so dark, but Windows 10 decided to be evil and say that his video editing program that he used to use is not compatible.

Putting dirt in the litter did not work, and she's not using the Cat Attract litter either, but I had laid a sheet of newspaper down and she used that. So I put another sheet over the litter in the box and now she goes on that, so at least she is going inside the box. It's kind of an odd fix, but it is working so I will take it.
