Re: Kitten with open fontanelle and one eye bulging

this kitten doesn't have hydrocephalus so doesn't need a shunt, it has a mis-shaped skull which is why the eyes are bulging. I actually type medical notes about this kind of stuff in human babies. The skull needs to be reshaped and how that is done in tiny kittens I really don't know. The link I pro...

Re: Trying to find wheels for Ishkur, CH kitty

That is fantastic!!! wow! Thank you so so so very much :) :) She is a very smiley girl. She wants to interact with the other cats but when she gets excited her front legs wave all over and she ends up hitting them repeatedly. They don't understand why she is so rude. I let her bat me, she uses soft ...

Re: Trying to find wheels for Ishkur, CH kitty

i'm glad you're working through all the details, that kind of thing right now would drive me insane. while the cats aren't stressing me out overmuch, I'm job hunting and that is eating my brain alive. I can't focus or think much about anything it seems.
so thank u thank u thank u a million times.
