So the power is back on and the first thing I did after making a good cup of tea
Pretty..but not my style. (that's my daughter's cat Rae-Rae in background)
was see how all of you are doing today.
Thank you for your comments about my Cali. The vet has already contacted me and her blood work shows that she is in kidney failure. Her thyroid is fine, her red blood cells are good, her kidneys are not. So, now I have 2 cats with kidney failure. The vet has given suggestions to build up her immune system and she says her need to eat more is probably just that she is sometimes not feeling great and the food comforts her. She may be right there because I noticed that she loves the attention that comes with it."OK...we'll see." I am adding more supplements to her food and I will continue to feed her often and we will wait and see how she does. There is nothing we can do to stop kidney failure but she is just in the beginning stages so she may be fine for some time. Ginny is much further on in her kidney failure and still seems good to me. They will BOTH be watched carefully.
The grey kitty that I have left food for is hiding. I haven't seen it since the first night. I will keep putting food there and see it she shows up.There are building all around and many hiding spots.
Helma is doing fine and spends many hours a day keeping guard over her 2 acre lot. She is just a doll and I love caring for her. She is so happy in her world.
Scaredy kitty (remember the one under the bed?) named Buddy is out and about and today he had a nice brushing and was lying across my legs to give me his tummy to groom. I'd say we are just 'tickety-boo' now. Baby steps work I tell ya.
