Well sumbuddy broked da compootur.... Soze Mom sez weze makes short updates. Dat weerd compootur just started makin a bads noize. Mom thot it waz da fan, but it mite be da hard drive.
Mom tried ta wake da compoorter dis mornin, but it cant finish wakin ups! It just keeps tryin ta start dat opurratin system.
We hopes dat da hard drive am nots deaded cuz Mom just puts bout ten purrty photos on it and no copies uv dem.
If it am da hard drive, Mom will hafta finds a company dats restores stuffoms from hard drives dat got dead motors.
Miri and Sammy and Toby went to vets on Monday. Miri's lungs sound okays.
Sammy had enlarged lymph glands and waz sneezin sohz him am taking pillz fur dat.
Toby am okays, just wanted to go too. Him am 4 1/2 pounds!
Sammy was almost 4 pounds. Miri over four pounds.
Da Vet lady tried da natural flee killer stuffs on dem, and day okays wif it. Whew... Mom was worried dat stuffoms mite be badz fur dem. Turned out dat Mom hads a rash, but kittiez were okayz! Mom gonna do sompin diffurnt for da shy babiez (Justin, Jordi and Jaspurr).
When Miri Sammy n Toby gotted home, dey all went sleepy fur hours and hours.... and growed some more! Sammy am over 4 pounds now! Yay! Him was all skinny n stuffoms after da last growing time. Da vet thinks dat Sammy am younger or sompin den da other kitties and will be a big boy cuz of hims big earz.
Sammy gotted sompins bads doh. Him haz juvenile glaucoma.
So does Jordi, the bicolor white. Dat meen da kittens can go blind later.
Mom am gonna cheks Jaspur and Justin to sees if dey haz bads eyes too.

Look... Weze Growed!
And still fits in one chair!
Miri in the back, Sammy in the middle and Toby in the front.Still got some Rexness going on... There are two main Rex mutations:
Wavy/Kinky underfur without guard hairs (Devon & Cornish - passive gene) and Curly guard hairs (Selkirk - dominant gene).
My babies seem to have some kind of incomplete dominant...
Can't see Toby's white bib and toe in this pic. Toby is getting more guard hairs in, but his fur is still curly and the guard hairs are wacky looking.
Miri and Sammy have an appointment on Monday. Sammy will get checked for FeLV. Sammy is sneezing and Miri is still hacking once in a while. I hate Miri to go on Clavamox again.
Miri just started having good bowel movements versus diarhea from the meds killing good and bad bacteria. I am giving her acidophilus and flax seed to help her gain back the good bacteria.
Two of my shy babies are getting a bit braver...
Jazpurr of soft white fur (wavy tummy furs) and Justin of smoky fur. Thought Justin was a black kitty, but all of his furs are white tipped in black. Hardly any guard hairs on Justin, just kinky underfur tipped in black. Him is furry purrty, furry shy yet likes being held and him loves to be with Toby, gentler black sorta tuxie boy.
Jazpurr is also sneezing now. Gonna have to figure out how to quarantine some sniffle kids from the non-snifflers... or just give them all meds?!?
Below is Mr. Cranky Jordi of coarser fur and kinky whiskers. (Bi-color Rt yellow eye, Lft blue)... Still responds to being picked up, tummy rubs and back skritches. Furst he has to hiss at you to let you know him not happiez.... unless you givez himz chicken. Den him happiez. Maybe him has itchy fur from bad fleez n and grumble tummy dat needs acidophilus... hmmm dats good idea.
Just purchased a new product from PetSmart. A topical between the shoulders that uses natural stuff that fleas hate, like mint and citrus! Can't wait to see how it works. Just couldn't see using something else on sniffle, sneezy furr babiez.
And made a new friend who can help me find homes!! And she also wants me to draw her 8 cats! She actually had one her cats at PetSmart! Sweet long haired white boy with the pinkest nose.
I am going to start giving them an herb blend on a regular basis that is good for their liver, which can get overworked with FeLV.
Just found this at Animal Wellness Magazine:
From that article:
"Although Lexus continues to test FeLV positive, she remained symptom-free until February of last year, when she had a severe asthma attack which was quickly alleviated with a properly administered homeopathic remedy. After her attack, Lexus vet started her on a glyconutrient and has remained symptom-free ever since. She no longer has fevers, lethargy or poor appetite, has gained some much-needed weight, and happily rules her guardian’s house."
Interesting.... I'll ask my vet about it.

Thank you all for helping Miri! Here is a recent video to watch fur Sunny Day.
Thanks to Cat Blog Auction, sweet little Miri ( short haired tabby) is doing better after antibiotics for bronchitis. Here she is playing with brothers Toby (tuxie) and Sammie (long-haired tabby) and my camera strap!
Miri is still coughing a little and still needs a followup visit with Cat Hospital of Wichita.
Her brothers have wacky, wavy and curly Rex like Furs.
Toby and Sammy have done a bit of growing, but are still small for their age. The lump underneath their ribs is hard to feel now... their bodies are in an awkward growing stage which is part of the picture. Still, enlarged liver is a sign of FeLV.
All the Kittens may have FeLV and will have to be tested.
Please keep purring for a forever home for these sweet guys. Toby, Sammy and Miri are all smaller than normal size kittens at five to six months old.
Their harder to tame down brothers are bigger, yet making progress with understanding. Had a Helen Keller moment with Jordi (bi-color white) today. He finally connected the giver of chicken, my fingers and scratching his ears! He even smiled and relaxed his face. What a good boy!
Will get some more updates on the three wilder boys and new photos. I hope I can get the bigger boys neutered this coming week using vouchers from RETAIN. Want to get them neutered at Kansas Humane Society because they will give them shots and test for FeLV as well. I hope if they test positive that K.H.S. will still neuter them while they can get over the surgery easier.
Thank you all for your kind donations to Maggie's Kitten Fund. I know your purrs and support are going to make a big difference in six kitten's lives.

(Shhhh.... Miri am sleepin.)
Dr. Jones said that the wheezy sound is now in her upper respiratory only and the congestion is moving up into her trachea so she can cough it up!
She said to continue the rest of the antibiotics and bring her in for another check up after that.
She doesn't need Prednisone!! Which is great because it is not good for growing kittens.
Miri has also gained a whole pound of weight and has grown some more!
She is still a little girl for 5 months old.
Miri and Jaspurr (the biggest white kitty) are the only ones showing straight furs.
Justin (Brownish Black), Jordi (Bicolored Eyed White) and the long-haired boys all have some sort of kinky or curly furs or whiskers.
Seems that the underhairs are more kinky and the top furs are more straight. have to look up which Rex mutation that is closest to theirs which I hope will help them find new foster Moms who can lovingly look after them with patients and purrz.
Gotta a new problem with the furbabies.
Sammy shown blinking at the flashy box has an odd lump under his right ribs. Toby seems to have it too, so must be an enlarged organ. It is in the spot where the liver should be... enlarged liver is a sign of luekemia. Making an appt for these two sweet hearts who purr all the time. Sammy even purrs when you pick up his brother. Will get him tested for Leukemia as well.
More updates soon on these curly critters.
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning. . .

She is still chronically wheezy and hacking, just not as frequently.
Taking her in to Dr. Jones at The Cat Hospital 9:15 CST
Dr. Jones wants to run some more tests.
Please purr for Miri's trip and her tests.
Sketch Drawings Up For Bids!
MATCH ALL BIDS ON THIS WEEK'S FUND RAISING FOR MIRI!
Bidding update Friday August 13 5:50 pm est
$12.00 Ginger Jasper
We are taking bids for the top ten highest!
I am pitching in to help sweet Miri get some more $$$. One hundred percent of the money raised for Miri and her brothers goes for their expenses. Miri has improved but is still having trouble breathing. She is on her last round of antibiotics and will need a checkup and possibly prednisone as well as spaying. It is still unclear whether the only problem is infectious bronchitis versus chronic asthma as well. There are still vet visits to follow for all the kittens. The boys will also need to be tested for leukemia and be neutered.
There are a limited number of sketches offered so be the first to bid and keep checking to make sure you have one of the top ten highest bids to assure that you will receive one. If you have a winning bid you will be contacted after the auction has ended and at that time you can pay for your sketch.
To bids on a purrtrait, please go to
Hiya every purrson,
Our Mom am sooo grateful fur all dats u iz doing to helps hur wif dis overwhelming task of saving deze here kittens and dere Mom and all da expenses in doing dat.
- Katie Kitty Too
Will be capturing Maggie as soon as she can (Miri and her brother's Mom) to get her spayed and tested for leukemia.
Unknown how Maggie will react after capture. We am purring that Maggie will calm down and be able to be adopted versus going back outside as a homeless feral. Will try to get a better photo of her. She is a very pretty grey tortoise shell.
Purrz of thanks for all you are doing to help me with this ginormouse task of saving these sweethearts who deserve a chance. I know that Maggie in her own way asked me to take care of her babies after they were weaned. I promised to do my best.

Sir Tobias Curlyfur of Purrzalot (aka Toe-bee!)
=^..^= =^..^= =^..^= =^..^= =^..^= =^..^= =^..^= =^..^=
Update on Miri:
Miri is still having some trouble breathing. Yet she is acting like a normal kitten - running, jumping and zooming all over the place. She is halfway through her treatment.
Dr. Jones is changing her antibiotics today and I will be picking them up later.
These kittens are carrying a Rex mutation gene of some sort. All the boys show some signs of wavy or curly fur. Also, Miri and the black fur babiez are changing color from brownish to silver grey undertones. Pleze purr that this special Curly trait will help them all find homes, even the feisty three J's (they still hiss, but then lick my fingers! Silly boys).
7:25 AM on Wednesday - going to take two neighborhood male cats to the low-cost spay and neuter this morning. Still have two more males in the neighborhood and Maggie, the kittens Mom, plus Daisy and Bootsie of the Katz Gang. (Daisy and Bootsie are scheduled for the 20th.)
Thank you all for your purrz and impurragement. Will hopefully get to your blogs furry soon.
It has been like one thing after the other. My mother is disabled and has several emergency things going on right now. My mother's health is very poor. Some financial and legal matters have to get done asap.

Miri is improving from the antibiotics. Been three days on. She is still hacking, but the wheezing has lessened and the hacking cough sounds more upper respiratory versus in the lower parts of her lungs.
She definitely has a lot more energy! She has been romping with her brothers, but still goes back to her "safety zone" sometimes, which is a chair in the living room. She likes to hide beside the laundry basket and watch her brothers playing and "the world" from there. The photo shows Toby in the hamper and Miri on the outside playing.
The Clavamox is liquid form and she hates the taste. Wanted to share my solution.
Try this with your babies by using their favorite treat.
- I wrap her in a towel and feed her a bit of chicken.
- Then give her the med in an eyedropper by poking the dropper in the side of her mouth.
- After she's swallowed most of it - some drips on her chin, I feed her some more chicken.
- This is really working! She is tolerating the nasty stuff cause it is sandwiched between chicken bites!
All the babies will need testing for leukemia... I'm just glad that Miri's immune system is working well right now.
Well every fur baby has fleas again and treatment was just two weeks ago.
Our town is having problems with Frontline working to get rid of fleas this year. Seems like the fleas are getting tougher. Will be calling Dr. Jones this morning to see what she recommends instead. Hopefully it isn't too expensive. Six treatments of flea meds... $$$$.I might be able to give the tamer babies a bath using flea shampoo, leaving the more expensive flea treatment between the shoulder blades to Justin, Jazpurr and Jordi. The three J's are calming down sooo slowly. Chicken seems to be the magic ingredient.... They still hiss at the slightest new thing, but will lick food off my fingers and Jaspurr sleeps on his back with his tummy up now!
They also don't like sharing yummies... Jazpurr will growl at Jordi and put his paw on his head.... "dis am mine!" Course then I get some off the plate and give it to Jordi anyway.
Thank you all for helping these babies... I am praying for a new Mommies for all, especially a loving patient place for the three J's, someone used to working with partial feral kitties.
More updates furry soon.
