Re: Cherry is home!

As she is a black tortie i found myself calling her 'black cherry' this quickly morphed into a drink I grew up on called Black Cherry Wisniak.

so, who here can tell me what that is WITHOUT googling it ?
it will also give you an idea of where i grew up.

Re: Ereshkigal has some residual nerve damage

i'm not finding any one spot that is point tender on her leg, no sign of discharge or outward injury, and with her history of muscle tear i'm inclined to think she has aggravated it again. but who knows, she is one wierd case. the swelling has gone down some, she is eating/drinking/pottying fine. sh...

Re: Ereshkigal has some residual nerve damage

Ereshkigal's foot has swollen up huge. it is at least twice its normal size.
what did she do to it this time????
So i gave her a dose of metacam and she is back in a small cage. she has a nice bed, so if she sits still she is nice and comfy.
AAAARRRRRGGGHHHHH

i don't want to have to cast her leg

Re: Ereshkigal has some residual nerve damage

First I wrap the foot in thick guaze or rolled cotton. Then I use vetwrap or similar thing over that. It is important when using vet to NOT stretch it as you wrap, otherwise it is too tight and you cut off circulation. I put an additional wrap rigth after the gauze ends to help hold it on. Soemtimes...

Re: Miracle in the making!

i'm glad that he still wants to be outside and participate in life. and the meds have helped, hopefully that will help him feel better.

Ereshkigal has some residual nerve damage

her toes on the affected leg do not work. I'm hoping she will regain control/sensation. I noticed today as she was lounging that the front of her toes are raw, they are dragging and rubbing apparently and she does not notice. So I will be making a little sock/book/something to protect them. It isn't...

Re: MD-8 week kitten w/rear paralysis looking for a forever

I have been trying and trying to adopt another twisty, like Bendy was. people post these cats and "oh they need a home right now" and then they don't get back to me or say "well she isn't ready for adoption yet" or, best of all, "we want someone local" even when I've offered to drive five hours one ...
