Wordy Wednesday - Salmonella!!

Maxwell Tigger Repurting (Katie am still on strike cause her am growlie. She can't remember who me and Bootsie am) 

Ronnie before getting sick
Auntie Silvia's kids are sick with Salmonella! Katie Mom bought Purina Naturals at Petsmart and Purina Indoor Cat Chow at Walmart on August 12th. NO FUNDS TO GET 5 cats MEDS.

To top all that, Silvia had an emergency with Ronnie last week - got into hard to open cabinet and bit a Tide detergent pod. Money came in for shot to help get rid of toxins - yet by weekend, Silvia rushed him to ER for fluids - she owes the motel owner for ER and paying her phone. Mama Narcisca went to vet on Monday for UTI and she owes for that bill. Then yesterday, Ronnie back to vet and he tested for Salmonella! All the kitties are throwing up with diarrhea.  Throwing out cat food (we gotta finds out if foods supposed to be tested somewheres) and no money for more food or meds for her kids... Need to cover debts and cat food and meds for salmonella... Need purrs and help asap.

Uncle Mike's neighbor is still in hospital (Vet Visits and Emergency Purrz) His name am Dirk - he has indoor and outdoor kitties and Katie Mom has been feeding them everyday... Dirk had a white mama cat supposed to stay in the house, but she got out while the emergency crew showed. Katie saw a white kitty and tried to pick her up to see if it were mama cat or white boy cat (checking fur milk) to put her back in the house, but she scrambled out of her arms and took off. She hasn't been seen since. Katie and Mike tried to finds the kittens in the house, but no good. We am wondering if something happened to the kittens cause Mom said white kitty didn't have any milk and her has not come back home... 

Bootsie and me am doing betters. The ouchie on my neck is getting much smaller thanks to little pills Mom gives me with my favorite canned food and ointment on my neck.  Bootsie has lost some weight though, yet her am taking her pills likes a trooper. Just gots ta finds sumpin her likes to eats.

Pearl am doing lots betters too and we hopes to gets her to her foster home furry soon. The foster Mommy's house has been getting lots of remodeling down - hopefully likes a day this week Katie Mom can get over to see where Pearl will be staying.

Our Friend Liz who has Mitchel had her car go kaplooey, transmission stuffs and had to go to shop. She somehow scraped enough moneys to gets it fixed and then it died last weekend! Thankfully in a parking lot. Well the transmission shop picked up the car and has been working on it... We sure hope the problem is under warranty and she doesn't owe anything. She had to take a bus to works again this week and she is picking up the car later... we are crossing our paws. 

Well dat's all fur now... we hopes to tells you abouts Hickory Hollow Animal Refuge furry soon. Katie Mom am going to gets them backs up on the webs to help them gets more volunteers and funds.
Hickory Hollow Ranch

Kitty Vet Visit Updates... AND EMERGENCY PURRZ!

Hiya, Maxwell Tigger with my selfie from the vets on Friday.  
I'm doing the mewz cause
Katie Too am under protest because Bootsie is sharing the computer room with her... 

Bootsie am in a big kennel cage so Mom can make sure her eats and gets her meds... cause Katie don't wants Bootsie out in the room... Mom don't get it. Katie and Bootsie were together before I came into the picture...  That Katie Too am 13 and don't like nobody now... I don't get it. We used to cuddle together in Mom's lap at our old place.

How you like my handsome face? I have a big chin like Tony the Tiger of Frosted Corn Flakes (no corn for me, breaks me out), yet I think this selfie hides it well. I'm back on Prednisilone starting with a higher dosage before tapering down and the vet trimmed my nails.. Just my neck is sooo itchy!  Katie Mom is helping my neck sore heal up and I will try not to scratch.  Already looking some better. Mom doesn't want to show you the icky photo of my sore. We just show you when it looks better and let you imagine how yucky it is... My total vet bill fur Friday was $63 and a previous balance for me was $34 so I costed $97 not counting change.

Pearl didn't get any vet photos, because Mom had to drop her off Friday morning, since there wasn't any appointments available. She is on another antibiotic twice a day, which is furry hard for Katie and Uncle Mike to do with their schedules. Hopefully she will be able to go to her foster home this week... Her Vet bill was about $51. 

Her nasal congestion is better, though. Pearl and I got to share the car on Friday, to go to our homes... it rained lots on Friday too. After my vet visit, Katie tooks me with her to pick up Pearl and as soon as she gots into the vet office, all the water just poured out of the sky.  Pearl and Katie hads to wait to go to the car. Lots of rainy noise on the car roof while I waited for them.

Then Bootsie who am 9 years old in September, had her appointment on Saturday... and we sure glad that Bootsie not has ring worm and that her skin am just itchy and she needed flea med and Prednisilone likes me to stop itchies. Here am Bootsie's I don't want to be at the vet's selfie. Bootsie gots a nail trim too.  Her bill am wrongs and needs fixin cause she never bin to Willowbend afore and pets gets half price on first exam visit. Dr. Johnson saw her likes nine years ago at another vet office - but dats diffurnts. Her bill plus a Revolution fur Katie comed to $92 when it shoulda been $67. So looks like We gonna has a $25 credit after Mom calls them on Monday.

Katie puts $63 of my bill on Care credit. Katie paid Pearl outta purrniversary money (from our Daddy purson Aug 23 am Mom and Daddy's purrniversary) and Uncle Mike hads to borrow about $126 fur Bootsie, Katie's flea stuff and my previous bill.   All together rounded ups to includes change was a little over $$240...

Now here comes the next part. Bootsie needs a tooth removed which am gonna cost about 352.00 and we dont know that includes the 20% discount that Dr. Johnson give us...  We don't gots that moneys and needs alla helps we can gets so Bootsie can has her tooth removed. Dr. Johnson said she has a resorptive lesion and it am painful. Her eating some but not wanting to eats her favorites food.  

We hads more to talks about ... but Mom just gots a phone call from Dirk, Uncle Mike's neighbor - Flash's Daddy, fell two days ago and hasn't fed his indoor and outdoor kitties and needs to go to ER... Which explains why Flash has been hanging around Uncle Mike's house for the past two days more so than usual... His fence is locked up and Uncle Mike has to climb fence to gets the keys.  Please keeps Dirk in your prayers.  He can't get up out of the chair and must have passed out yesterday cause he thought it was Saturday.  Katie Mom and Uncle Mikes has to go help and feed his kitties... (Pearl at Mom's house still hasn't had her antibiotics yet today)  


Purrz and Meows,

Well Here We Am Again.

Hiya folks...Katie Kitty Too with a real selfie as the junior exec of the computer room at Katiez Furry Mewz. This pose was inspurred by Erin the Cat Princess in her selfie today. As you can see we kinda looks alike, us tuxies do... Tuxie Power!!!

The Mom started writing our blog around midnight, but her was just poopled... tired bumfuzzled sumpins. 

Here I am getting ready to get in Mom's lap so we can finish blogging this afternoon.  We wants to thank all the folks who stopped by to visit last Sunny day, even though Mom and us kitties was just too tuckered out to visit back!  We purmice to visits more furry soons... cause we loves alla yous!

(We dids updates on Facebook. If you gots sumpin else, let us know and we update there too. Blogspot dont likes Moms mobile windows phone and won't let us blog on that. And Mom's pc am at Uncle Mike's where I reign supreme in the computer room. No internets at our house.)

Katie Mom looked back at last post and was wondering who to give the fashion wise bunny rabbit to!  Well there am like four pawsibilities... Virginia of the Poupounette. and three other cat folks on Facebook. Will keep you posted about that...If no takers, will auction it off instead.

Good mews about the car kinda sorta... they put the car back together and kinda fixed the bumper frame, but that was it... Uncle Mike and Katie Mom picked up the car Monday... the trunk leaks water and it rained today. At least the Mom can drive Uncle Mike's car without her lips turning blue...

Yeps, you heards right... brand new car upholstery was turning Moms lips blue and lowered her oxygen levels. If Mom had to drive 2016 Ford Focus rental one more day, she would have landed in the hospital. Did you know that car manufacturers are not required to tell how much toxic stuff is in your upholstery? And no regulations about amounts of furmaldehyde or nuffin!!! Mouses!!! as a certain cat princess loves to say. Seriously, the toxins in new cars are dangerous... what is wrong with humans???

Now I haz to apologize fur the next thing... and the food bowl should apologize too.Wednesday Mom, me and a food bowl collided and something cut open mom's finger. I'm blaming the food bowl and Bossy Tommy Cat who came in my domain and scared me...

That's the official story. Not getting another peep outta me coppers! Me didn't do nuffin...mol. I'm an indoor cat and gots rabies shots otay!?! Mom's finger just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and food bowls can be mean when they break and sometimes nip you. Mom bled alot... afore her slapped dat wound together and treated it with colloidal silver. But her finger swelled ups too. Mom went to ER, was there all night and saw nobody but triage nurse. So she left and went to her clinic when they opened at nine and they butterflied mom's finger... and she gots purrscription for Clindamycin 4 times a day! Lucky for her she likes pills. ptooey! Clinic did not has Tetanus shots. so her went to health department and they wanted $53.00!!! So No tetanus shot... Mom just needs a booster but 53.00?!?! Mouses! Her tried another clinic and they not take bank info fur proof of income... needed benefit letter but her lost that (Mom's tired brain was invaded by fuzzy aliens earlier this year.)

Ifs you am all waiting fur a photo selfie of Guero, here we go!
Him was at the vets when dis selfie was taken on Friday.  Mom had to borrow money to get his blood panel done - $98.
Furry thankful for dat borrowed greenies cause Dr. Vet said with his major surgery and all the meds he had, time to check his blood levels and organs... Furry Good Mewz: All in Good range!!! Whoo Hoo! Way to Go Guero!  Him finally hads some goods pooh too. No throwing ups. Now do stay away from strings... dey nots foods.

Fur Silvia's health though, if you have seen the You Caring updates, her doc found a pea sized lump and she had a mammogram Thursday... waiting fur results... most likely will need surgery to remove... pray for benign. Silvia is so compassionate that her was more worried for Guero...

On the job front, Silvia got a call last week from an aircraft tooling company - she went into interview Wednesday and does a test on Monday (tomorrow). This would be wonderful works cause they need someone in parts ordering that is bilingual. Job would start end of August. We purring for this bestest job. Not counting all our chickens yet, don't let Bear hear me say chickens... Howsomever we gotta to keep rents paid til we finds out and then until her first check... On the short list and they called her! This is even better than the survey job pawsibility.

Now fur a loverly selfie of wittle Pearl with Uncle Mike:   Pearl may has another foster to looks after her... Mom needs to get details sorted out how to get her there. Here in town good. The foster lady am out of town right now at family reunion. Pearl still on antibiotics and sniffling. Her tongue am staying pink and her sure eats alot.  Me sure her am going to be twice my size as a grown up girl! From 1.3 pounds to big kitten needing two hands to hold her... Pearl has come a long way.  Thank you all fur helping Katie Looks after her.

Well weze almosts dones.... Maxwell Tigger still needs purrs though - steroid pills didn't help much. Him gotted Revolution okay. but still gots skin rashes. Mom wondering if it am food related. Her going to stop giving him Sheba canned Salmon for treats and try something else. Me and Max both eat Authoriy grain free so not about grain allergies. We gonna try Dinovite as soon as we gots funds to gets the powder cause it works best and lasts longest.

Mom helped a lady her hadn't talked to in over a year find a temporary boarding fur her kitties overnight, while she found a mew place to stay...(same foster that may be taking Pearl this week) Her was evicted from parents home after Mother died... long story and lots of wrong decisions, still not right what her brother did, selling the home out from under his sister.

And Liz, Mitchel the orange kitten's Mom had her car go kaput... her lives in Topeka so Uncle Mike can't really helps with car. Her am trying to gets transmission fixed. Mom am helping Liz puts a funding campaign together to get the car fixed.... Liz has two beautiful rosaries and several digital photos her am willing to gives for helping with her car...  (60.00 or more fur rosaries and they am worth much more. Please specify which rosary.)
Liz has a new job starting tomorrow! Her car is a 2005 Dodge Neon SXT. $900 before starting on car - no car back til 1800 paid in full. Smith Brothers Transmission: 2647 S E 6th Ave, Topeka, 66607. 785 727 1051. Liz must get to work! Bus, cab or walk 2 miles.
