KC: Day 4



KC is sleeping on my shoulder while I type. She spent last night sleeping on Charley and then me.

It is flooding outside. When If it stops raining, will take KC to vet: she can't breathe thru her nose and gasps. It's normal for a shelter kitty and she is taking antibiotic. And, oh, is she gaining weight. Bet her little fat belly weighs a pound by itself. In the other photo, KC has discovered the joys of kitty grass. I was getting her RX ready, so she was up on the kitchen counter where I keep Missy's grass.

K.C. looks so trusting that her Momma is going to take care of her little head cold...I still get the chils when I think of that photo taken in that horrid cage, those pleading,defeated eyes...
SHE KNOWS she is in a safe place now!

You've done wonders, ML!!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Rose, that is the perfect description: pleading and defeated. Charley is worried she still looks sad, but in a few days that will gradually change.

Yeah, we've done wonders with her, it was a tough job, but someone had to do it...hee-hee.

She just came up and JUMPED in my lap to get on my shoulder to sleep. No more typing now.

Amen to that, Rose. I love it that she is an "equal opportunity snuggler." Most cats have "their person"-look at Karen's mob. Stay safe, ML, be careful in the high water.

Rose, I'm glad to see that you are still among the living. How are you feeling(yes, crappy, I know)-I hope you can take it easy for a few days.

I hope everything is ok with that bundle of cuteness. And the rain. Hope that stops soon.

Poor baby still has a stuffy nose? That's what Cairo was doing just before I took her up to Kathleen. Her little nose was all stuffy and she was breathing through her mouth and sneezing. Also, if you go to www.crewsviews.blogspot.com and check out poor George from 2 days ago, he had to go to the V-E-T and they dripped saline in his nose to clear it out. He wasn't too happy, but I hear he behaved like a gentleman. My cats would go nutso trying to scratch and claw anyone who would try to do something like that. Get better little angel KC!

She is just too cute! I hope she gets over the wheezing real soon. I am so happy to see that after her miserable start in life, she is going to be happy in a loving home!

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Yes, I think she is already figuring out she has got a couple of suckers here.

Going to attempt to take her in to Dr. Smith tomorrow and get her weighed, and have her stuffed nosey checked. She's been taking her antibiotic two times a day.

KC's poop is getting near normal.

Yippee for KC's poopie! Obviously I'm not sqeamish! Her little nosie is stuffed up. Are you taking her in today or tomorrow? She looks so comfortable cuddled up with hers Mommy. Rose definitely said it best! Kisses to KC, Missy & Bear!!!

Karen C. said...

I actually had to lie to the vet who issued the health certificate regarding the poop. It seems that firm poop is a requirement for airline travel.

ML (Mary Lynn) said...

Well, Karen C, if you hadn't, I would not have her here now, would I? So am I glad you did whatever it took to get this little baby to us.

I put Bear some supper out, the homemade chicken soup w/egg noodles. Peanut (nickname for KC to emphasize how tiny she is) PUSHED Bear aside and munched unashamedly. Dr. Smith said her eating that kind of people food is fine. Now she's going potty. Such a good little KC.

Someone asked me today how she got her name and I said she was named for an angel!

KC, you're in our thoughts! We hope you feel better furry soon 'cause we hate goin' to the vet! Our's is furry nice but likes to stick things up our b*tt! So feel better soon!

KC, just ignore Oscar and Simon! They should not have told you that! Your vet is going to do all that she can to make you all better. We love you little princess peanut!

Poor thing! It's no fun having a cold! I remember when Boca came to us(to be fostered) and he was so stopped up and had to breathe thru his nose! Terrible! But after a couple days on his antibiotic, it cleared right up! Looks like KC is thoroughly enjoying Missy's kitty grass! :)
