Mancat Monday

Mancats are super silly!
Harrison has been acting like a silly kitten since Rusty has been here.

Checking out the trash drawer...not sure what is so fascinating in there...

Decided he should just jump on in there!  Thank goodness it wasn't full of gross trash, just some papers :)

Now how are you going to get out?  Did you find what you were looking for?

Such a silly goof!  Have your cats been acting silly lately?  I think mine are enjoying the cooler temps too.

Wordless Wednesday

It's Official - Rusty Blaine is a member of the Four Crazy Cats!

He had his neuter yesterday, so I could finally adopt him.  Welcome to the family little one!

Mancat Monday

The boys have had a good week...trying to make sure everyone gets the attention they need!
Rusty and Regina will be going to have their surgeries this week and Regina will be staying at the shelter.  Fingers crossed she gets adopted quickly.  She is a sweet girl.  I feel bad that she won't have a friend to help her feel comfortable in the shelter since Rusty won't be there.  I'm sure she will make friends with the other kittens though.

Harrison is trying his best to get the kittens to play with him!  He has been talking and chirping more.

Oliver has now been with me for 4 years.  He isn't too fond of the babies, but it takes him longer than anyone to adjust to new things.  He is starting to play more and talk.  He is my sensitive diva!

Rusty and Regina don't mind playing and having fun!  Rusty weighs 3 pounds now and Regina is just a couple of ounces behind. They seem to be growing by the day, getting taller and longer.  Slow down and stay babies as long as you can!!

Definitely a favorite toy!

Harrison acts hungry all the time these days.  Here he has stolen some kale from Aunties salad and is chowing down.  I don't think he is losing weight, but I need to double check the weight chart.

Rusty loves to eat too, and is trying to see what Harrison has.  He wasn't too impressed with this choice of snack!

Poor Flynn missed out on getting his picture taken this week, but he is doing well.

Mancat Monday

The mancats are all feeling better and back to their playful ways.
Catnip is always a nice treat...
 While they all love this treat, Flynn gets the craziest over his nip!

(Harrison is under the bench, Oliver in the middle, and Flynn stretched out in the floor)

Rusty isn't into nip yet, but has discovered the crinkle balls... 
He still plays and sleeps all the white he has on him...only orange on the top!

So thankful to have a healthy household once again.  Rusty should be able to go next week for his neuter and adoption!

Foster Friday

Our house is a bit quieter right now...
These four babies went back to the shelter on Tuesday to have their surgeries and go to the adoption floor.  It was hard to see them go because they are such a snuggly group.  It was a purr fest in the carrier while we waited! 
Regina and Rusty stayed behind because they are getting over their colds.  They have to wait two weeks from the end of symptoms before going in for surgery.  They are both improved and ate like pigs last night! 
Rusty came to get a snuggle and sleep off his food coma!  He is a sweet boy and will be joining the panthers once he has his surgery.

Mancat Monday

The mancats are starting to feel better.
Oliver has been out and about since early last week.  He was able to stop taking his medicine on Thursday.  He still flicks his head some, so I wonder if there are a few remaining ulcers but he is eating well and not hiding, so I think he is fine.

Foster kitten Charlie's necropsy results came back showing Panleukopenia.  The vet feels this is what the boys have at the moment too, but since they have been vaccinated they will be fine, but still have to feel bad for a while as they fight off the virus.

I've been doing a lot of reading on panleuk and while most common symptoms are diarrhea, vomiting and not eating, there are others like congestion, ulcers, sneezing and symptoms like an upper respiratory infection.  Thankfully, my crew is continuing to eat pretty well.

Rusty is starting to act like one of the big cats too.  Oliver isn't sure what to think about him trying to get his night snack!  

The kittens have had the worst time with the panleuk.  Rusty has been super congested but still eating.  From what I have read and the vet has said, there are different strains of the virus, like the flu.  Some are very deadly and others not so much.  Although we have lost two kittens, it seems that the rest are either not coming down with it, or are fighting it off.  Rusty is improving daily, but now Regina has it.  Hoping she will be like Rusty and feeling better in about three days.

Harrison is hard to see, but look for the eyes in the cat ball.  This  ball/bed is Oliver's birthday present, but so far, Harrison has claimed it!

Flynn spent yesterday hiding and last night I think he is coming down with something again.  He is still eating so I will just continue to monitor him.

Fingers crossed that by next week we will all be at 100%!

Happy Birthday Oliver!

Happy Birthday to you Oliver.  You bring such joy to my life and I love your quirky personality.  I never know what to expect with you!  I am so glad you are part of the family.  Now you are the oldest and have a big role to play as big brother.  I know you are up to the challenge!

Purrs and Hugs to my favorite 4 year old!
