Re: Babies: Cats

Did the person who brought Thelma know what happened to her mama? It's
so good of you to take her in and I bet she's just adorable. I've never
had a real kitten - Seamus was probably the youngest that ever wandered
in here at about 5-6 months old.

The others were all about a year old when they showed up. Would love a
kitten, but there's no room for one. Also - my vet expenses have soared
this year. They've found a vaccination for FIV so all 4 of my cats are
getting that at $100 each and now they're also able to test for
Bartonellosis. I've only had Jack tested so far, but he was +, so I
began treatment. He's already quite improved, tho he hates the medicine.
I get Mick and Braveheart tested tomorrow and Shimmy next week. Testing
is $30, treatment $62. Hopefully the others don't have it. The reason
the medicine is so expensive is that the vet couldn't find a veterinary
source - he had to buy it from a human pharmaceutical source (it's the
same course of treatment we would take if we got the disease) Add to
that their annual visit for all other shots and the one in May for their
6month flea injection and I'm looking at $1200 this year - before food.
But they're definitely worth it.

I do have one that weighs 17-1/2 pounds, but, as you might have guessed,
verrrry laid back.  Incidentally, Thelma came to live with me last night, 
brought by a person I had never met before -- she just heard I was the
lady."  Thelma is probably about 3 weeks old and has to be bottle fed
four hours, Right now she's drinking about 1 tablespoon of kitten formula
each feeding, but I think she'll be ready for kitten food real soon.  Now 
there are over 30 members of my furry family.  How's that for more than
ever wanted to know? <LOL> Today, for the first time this year (or last), 
there are more plants than weeds in my beds.  Noticed that the Lilium 
formosanum are coming along nicely, the Baptisia are up and one of the 
peonies has huge buds.  When checking out the ginger lilies I found the 
Hedychium coronarium's rhizomes are turning red and getting ready to send
shoots. It just gets better every day!
