Adoption Update (August 10/11 and August 17/18)

August 10/11
Last weekend (August 10/11) was a little slow for adoptions with only two adoptions - but what great adoptions they were!  Frittata was finally adopted after waiting her turn for almost a year.  And Little Rock - one of our special medical kittens - was adopted.  Woot, woot!!!

August 17/18
A pretty good weekend for the kitties.   Wingtip finally found her forever home.  She was the last of last year’s “Shoe kittens” – whose mom was even adopted before her.  Social networking played an incredible part in her adoption and a friend of her foster’s boss ended up adopting Wingtip.  Just goes to show, when you “share” on Facebook, it really does help!   Let the happy dancing commence!

Also adopted were Jules (yay – black kitten adopted on Black Cat Appreciation day!), Pablo, Mica, and Diego.  

A big congratulations to the adopted kitties and their new families.  We’re so happy for you!

Here's Jules with his new mom and dad in celebration of Black Cat Appreciation Day. 

Remember these kitties?

Remember the crazy day in June when I was out of town for work and came home to eight new rescue kittens and then received a request from a vet to help a kitten two days later?  Well, here's a little update!

The Eye Kittens
Well, Zapp Brannigan turned out to be a girl so has been renamed to Hattie McDougal - a female character on Futurma.  Hattie's eyes are fine - yay!  Leela had her surgery and is doing well - but oh boy, is she a fiesty one (see the little firecracker below!).  One of Zoidberg's eyes has cleared up completely but there are still major issues with the other one.  He is being treated by Animal Eye Care in Cary and is being treated with several medications but right now we are at the wait and see if it gets better in a few months mode.  :-(

Leela, the firecracker!

The Prison Kittens
The prison kittens are all doing well.  We named them after gunslingers.  We were originally going for an Outlaw theme, but couldn't come up with names for the ladies - not true female outlaws whose names people would recognize.  So they became: Butch Cassidy, Calamity Jane, Annie Oakley, Wyatt Earp, and Doc Holliday.  We have two health scares with them - one with Butch and one with Wyatt (about two weeks apart).  They became lethargic, not eating, with temperatures that were incredibly high (they were both in different foster homes).  In fact, Doc's temp was 105.6 when he was rushed to the vet.  Lots of cool compresses, fluids, antibiotics, steriods, etc. and hospitalization.  But they are all doing fine.  Testing and blood work did not show any cause for their illness.   Below are the Prison kittens several weeks after rescue.

The Vet Kitten
Devlin, the three legged kitten is doing pretty well.  He tends to scratch where his leg was removed, so we've been battling infection and lots of vet visits - the latest vet visit was Friday.  So he's now sporting clothing to keep him from scratching.  We looked at doggie tshirts or sweaters today at the pet store but he's a small guy, so our medical coordinator (who is currently fostering him due to his issue and her proximity to our vet) took a sock and cut it and he's swearing it as a "sweater".
