I just popped in to let you all know I haven't forgotten you. I have
been reading, but just haven't had a chance to reply. We've been
purring, praying and rock-rubbing for those in need. We've also been
rejoicing for all the good things.
I found out that Oz has stomatitis, and he has had 4 teeth removed.
He's doing much better now, and is eating mainly Hills t/d, with a
little Wellness mixed with water. He's supposed to eat nothing but
the t/d, but he demands wet, so, at his age, what he wants he gets.
I also found out that Secret, who's just over 2, also has stomatitis.
He had two teeth removed last winter, and today, had most of the rest
of his teeth removed. :-( Strangely enough, it was his front teeth
that were rotting; the back teeth were okay so he still has them (for
I now have 29 cats of my own: Oz, Voodoo, Willow, Marble, Matthias,
Jordie, Cyrus, Nevaeh, Whisper, Sadie, Oxford, Patros, Quattro, Amber,
Shalimar, Mae, Secret, Larissa, Noah, Bailey, Liam, Gryphon, Micah
Blue, Malachi, Thunder, Aladdin, Diana, Ryan and Cinnamon.
Diana, Ryan and Cinnamon used to own Fred Williams on rpcc, but things
went sour for him, so I fostered Diana and Ryan for 3-4 months. He
kept Cinnamon with him. When things started looking up for Fred, he
came and got them. It was a sad day for me when Diana, and especially
Ryan left. Ryan was my rock when Kissa died. :-( Fred's life took
another turn, and he asked me if I would take them back, along with
Cinnamon. This time he was turning them over to me. Needless to say,
I couldn't say no, and so my (not so little) family grew once again.
As well as my own cats, I am fostering 22 Abbey Cats. This includes a
mother and 7 3 1/2 week old kittens. Mum is just recovering from a
URI, and the babies eyes still aren't open (they're stuck shut). I'm
having to wipe their eyes a zillion times a day to try and get them
And if that isn't enough for one's plate, I am feeding 6 strays out
back, one of which looks pregnant. If she is, I'm hoping she'll have
the kittens in our shed or under our back porch, so I can bring the
family in. Not that I need any more cats, but.............
I will try a little harder to keep up from now on.
