Three Kitties Needing Vets

Katiez Katz Selfies Today are Three Kittiez Needing Vet Visits and Purrz Pleaze:

Gordo back in May
Monday Oct 24th correction Update: Gordo's Blood work done Friday tested for overall blood chemistry and anemia, including thyroid. Results came back Saturday within normal parameters. Silvia will pick up papers on Monday. He weighs 12 pounds which is light for his bone structure. He used to weigh more over a year ago.

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,
Katie Kat,

  1. We sure send purrs for everyone, Silvia and her crew are blessed to have you on their side.

    1. Thanks Brian... I'm doing all I can, Silvia doesn't want them hurt, yet she is so exhausted herself.

  2. Update, didn't make it out to Leon, Kansas to Hickory Hollow, but will call them and talk about if they have room to help out with Silvia's cats. Sometimes they can take cats and dogs on a temporary basis until owner can take them back, especially if help providing room and board. I had talked to the owner about getting a new website up and spreading the word about their sanctuary grassroots style for them several months ago. -Katie Kat.

  3. We're purring and praying for you all. Thank you for being such a champion for Sylvia and her babies.

  4. We know what a tough situation Silvia is in, and we wish we cold do more to help out, but with no extra $ right now, we can only purr, pray and send POTP, which we will continue to do. We look forward to hearing more about the shelter in Leon. Thanks for hopping with us. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  5. Such a stressful time for Silvia and her cats. She is fortunate to have you for a friend. Hope things change for her soon!

  6. I do hope the shelter in Leon can help, it sounds a very good place. Not knowing distances involved, would it be possible for Silvia get a job there? Thank you for being there for Silvia and the cats, it is a blessing in deed. purrs ERin

  7. Healing Pawkisses and Purrayers to you all <3 <3 <3

  8. We send homes and lots of love for luck to come your way.
