Re: Marshmallow

i have lost count of the number of times I've had to ask for help logging in. I think my computer is finally remembering my login info and I'm sure CarolC is glad of that. i would send messages saying "me again" or "yes i having trouble again" she's a good sport about it. Finding a home for a cat li...

My boy Tierseas is undergoing chemo

He is 10, blind from eye infections as a tiny kitten (herpes virus). He has been my "squooshy" boy, loving hugs and snuggles. When I knew Bendy was terminal I told Tierseas he was going to take Bendy's torch. and then Tierseas developed a very aggressive cancer, hemangiosarcoma, in his neck, a very ...

Re: Looking for a disabled kitty that needs a loving home.

Are you only interested in a kitten, or would you be interested in an adult? I have a solid black girl who is about 5 years old and just doesn't do well in my house of handicats. She has deformed front legs and all four feet have syndactyly. She is very shy at first and needs time to come around, bu...

Re: Freak Accident: Can a Cat Live Without a Tongue?

Frijole here does not have a tongue. no one knows how she lost it. she was part of a managed feral colony and when spayed she had been normal. 2 years later she ran up to one of the caretakers meowing and meowing. the was thin and filthy. they took her to their vet who said 'your cat has no tongue" ...

Ishkur says th ank mew CarolC for her wheels!

Ishkur is a kitty who had multiple closed head injuries and cannot stand on her own, but she is spunky and full of life. I found a video with a cart for CH kitties and our own CarolC made it for Ishkur! thank you so much. It has taken a lot of practice, but finally Ishkur can motor around in it, nic...

I have toasted Bendy every night since he passed

it occurred to me today that I wanted to also toast Butterbean.
the two of them didn't like each other very much, for the short time they knew each other so I think toasting them at the same time would be inappropriate. Okay, two separate toasts then.

Ishkur's symptoms are improving.

The vet who saw Ishkur has a lot of experience with CH cats (aka wobblers) and he stated that this is NOT a CH kitty. I have little experience with them so I couldn't say one way or the other. Ishkur has a symptom that reminded me a lot of my girl Mimosa, who had severe brain damage from an anoxic e...

Re: Ishkur in her cart!

HM.
I did not get a single notification that this thread had any replies.

Ishkur is doing very well in her cart, although right now she keeps pulling her feet up and using it as a hammock, silly cat.
She definitely likes being upright. Thanks again!
