So everyone is doing well. Late this afternoon, they came downstairs for the first time. As soon as my back was turned, Trudy was up in the cat tree! (They're supposed to stay calm and not jump... ha!) Here's a little video of the gang and a couple of stills as well. It's good to have them home!!
Buds Sophie and Lawrie chill together. These two have become fast friends.
Naughty Trudy headed right for the high ground. (Yes, that's a track thingy sitting on top of the cat tree. Hey! We're crowded around here right now! LOL!)
Grandma Winnie keeps a watchful eye on the recovery ward from the desk.
Welcome Justice to Space Paws and keep your paws crossed for his recovery!
Space Paws has another foster - Sonia took in Justice, a 12 year old, who had been scheduled for euthanasia this morning because he had begun growling, swiping at people and eliminating outside of his pan. Co-worker Beverly found out about his impending fate yesterday and went to Sonia (Bev wrote to me yesterday morning, but when I didn't get the email right away, she wisely sought out Sonia).
Sonia readily agreed to try to help Justice. Beverly picked him up this morning and took him to a vet near her... and, sure enough, he had a UTI. If the condition has been chronic, that would explain all the behaviors. So, he's had his first shot of antibiotic and Sonia has tucked him in her intensive care unit for critters (her big crate). The big guy is decidedly not a happy camper right now... understandably so - he's been uncomfortable for who knows how long, got snatched away from his home of 12 years, been poked, prodded, forced to urinate, shot and schlepped to an unfamiliar place. And, to add insult to injury, he now has to get used to new food, too!
I'll post pictures and more info as soon as I've got it. Sonia is pretty busy so it may be a few days! Beverly and Sonia, you rock!
