Av, glad to hear of your kitty not losing the leg.
I want a puppy, but with my wife's allergies, we are holding off for now.
My daughter wants a kitty, but same thing.

Believe in karma; don't take justice upon yourself, nor try to render justice on your perception of yourself.

Yes, Sarge, that's me talking, not you. I get that you don't see things that way...and that's OK.

Elsewhere you kvetch about those with different views screening you out. I certainly don't always agree with your opinions, but [channels Spock] I am and will always be your friend.

If I ever find another store that carries Moxie, I'll try to ship some your way.

I like to see the sweet sides of you manly dudes 😉 you did good Sarge.

I feel you ... actually. I spent the last 5 months + doing post bushfire wildlife search and rescue ... and we only assessed 7 koalas all of which were severely emaciated and dehydrated and we KNOW there are more out there in likely the very same condition ... but we couldnt get to them.

There was nothing more I could do ... once the local rescue group got cold feet and pulled their license. After that we were totally fucked.

You did all you could and instead of 4 emaciated pups dying ... you have saved one.

Cags can Carla take antihistamines? For the allergies?? Then you can have a puppy .... OR guess what get a breed that has non-allergenic fur.

I have a Maltese they have a single hair layer very much like human hair and is non-allergenic also poodle crosses are great prospects for the same reason and poodle fur also doesnt smell doggy ... its awesome.

Food for thought 🤔😉😂

Good news. They named the pup Molly.

Up for adoption today and a group of

I hope she gets a good home. I worry about the shelter I volunteer at - they have a pretty solid foster program that has helped a lot over the past couple of months (and a lot of folks who fostered while working from home ended up adopting the critter) - but now we're getting into kitten season, and that's a bit trickier because while we do have a kitten foster crew, they're not going to adopt the entire litter, and arranging meetings with potential adopters is complicated right now. Not a good year to be a kitten. Not a good year to be anyone, but I have a soft spot for kittens.

Well, cat is home (since sat) and miserable. Has to be confined for up to 6 weeks, so we'll see how it goes. Have built an enclosure for her in my cupboard, but she's not very impressed. Smile

Back to the vet today for bandage changes. Also, she hasn't eaten since I got her back, and I'm struggling like hell to get her antibiotics into her, so hopefully they can give her the shot instead. Hopefully.

Anyway, will see how it goes. Cost a fortune of course, but worth it every time. (Also, she is now the new record holder of my most expensive cat. Very Happy )

Do you have a space to build a catio? So she can go outside but still be "confined?"

The antibiotic shots are the best. My youngest is known as The Squirminator. I dread having to medicate her.

Min is now my two-time record holder for vet bills, first for her week-long hospitalization for corona (yes, really - no, not the same one that's going around), and then for having her spleen removed. She's my baby though.

Well, she's back at the vet since yesterday...still not eating, although her vitals are fine. They had to syringe-feed her last night. Apparently they suspect she has a very sore throat (I assume from intubation during surgery) so they've adjusted treatment accordingly, now we waiting to see if she will eat. *sigh*

Menolly, I live in a flat (apartment?) so there's no "outside" for her to go to, other than the "real" outside. Smile

Ah. No balcony to screen in and set up a platform or something for her to perch on? That's a shame.

I have a balcony, but it's completely enclosed. Not usually a problem since they outdoor cats.

I had a cat develop a huge abscess on her face after a wound. I was able to get powdered antibiotics and put it in her drinking water. Since she was old, she drank a lot of water so it worked well. She survived that and many other adventures before passing away blind, deaf, and toothless at 23. (What is that in cat years, anyway?)

Anyway, much better than fighting to shove pills down cat's throats. Done plenty of that! And I don't like needles, either.

Sarge, people suck. And then there are people like you, who are the opposite of suck. You give. We need more like you. Group Hug

Still no real change unfortunately. Vets did some scans and ruled out tumors etc. but she's on a feeding tube now, nothing to do but hope she starts eating by herself. Sad

Oh no .. thats awful news. Hoping she picks up soon.

When shes discharged you could try rubbing sardine oil over her nose n mouth. If she was a dog Id rub peanut butter or honey. See if it sparks interest.

There is absolutely no place or need for putting both owners and animals through the nightmare of giving cats oral antibiotics. Makes me angry. There are excellent long acting broad spectrum antibiotics that can be given by injection (some that remain active for up to two weeks). This, NSAID's and confinement in a small space. The loss of appetite is not significant (with the proviso that infection is ruled out - and with the antibiotic it pretty well will be). Cats can survive for long periods on very little food as long as they have a good supply of clean water. and a regularly cleaned litter tray. In fact it is wholly to be expected; think on it - you are laid up in hospital or home with a busted leg in great pain. The last thing you want is to get stuck in to five courses with chocolate to finish. What is needed here is a small quantity of high quality food - say white chicken meat- cut finely. Maybe a bit of good quality cat food mashed up into a paste with a fork. But still, it could be weeks before the cats appetite returns to normal (and the antibiotics will depresss the appetite on their own). An injury of this nature is a long term process; all of the pinning and plating in the world will not rectify the trauma the tissue has been put through and this needs time and care to recover. Forget tumors and stuff - they are a white elephant.

TLC and time will do the trick - and harden yourself to the cat's confinement, because she will work on your heartstrings like a virtuoso violinist on a fiddle, but it is very important.
