|Gordo back in May|
He is eating some and keeping some of it down. When I checked on him yesterday afternoon and also around five - his eyes were bright, not lethargic. His skin is very loose, but doesn't stay up. Silvia has been getting him to drink water. He still has an appetite. He even ate an okra last night. This morning though after he emptied his bladder, he tried to go again a few minutes later. His urine does not smell sweet - diabetes is out. Still needs checked for thyroid abnormal thinness. There are other tests he could get too. At the moment, he has an appointment to see my vet on Monday.
Gordo's Mama Narcisca gets her anal glands plugged easily
and needs them expressed again. She was running a mild fever last night - 105, and was throwing up from licking this morning. Need to get her in to get expressed.
And Mom's Cat Bibi still needs her ears and teeth checked... didn't get in to see doc yesterday. Bibi is 15 years old. Maybe she needs a tooth pulled. Dr. Johnson is really good at teeth pulling and doesn't charge much... sweet Bibi doesn't like carriers and going places and hides... but we figured out her hiding place.
NOTE: While writing the blog post...
Silvia is stressing out about two cats needing seen and her Aunt is trying to convince her to take cats to the kill pound and come live with her (although she has no extra bedroom that I know of. She would be on the couch). Getting harder for her to look after herself, find work and not getting enough sleep with the cats needing vet help. I may go out to a no-kill ranch today, see if they can take them in, but lot to ask to take five cats -
Hickory Hollow Ranch - I have been out there. Wonderful place near Leon, Kansas, yet understaffed. I have talked to them before about working on getting their website working and getting more people knowing about their animals needing homes. They just built a new area for their cats. Silvia wants her cats to be in their own room and that might be possible there. I can offer to pay their room and board. The ranch is out near Leon, Kansas. I am headed out there this afternoon after I go speak to Silvia, see if she wants to go with me.
I am willing to do anything to save Silvia's babies and get the stress off of Silvia. I have come to know this gal. She is such a good lady with the kindest heart, always putting others before herself.
Please keep us in your purrz,
