This weekend has been super busy!!
Friday a little duckling came in again, except this was one lonely duckling where as last time there were more. Ugh but the staff put him in the highest cage, all we could do is watch him from afar. One of the staff raised Simon up to the cage to see what he'd do and he tried to stick his face in as far as he could but he said he still couldn't reach the little duckling.
Also a young foster kitten came in, the foster parent noticed blood in the poop and it had vomited as well. The kitten was in very bad shape and refused to eat any food, the temperature was also super low. The normal temperature is usually within the 38C but the kitties temperature was 34c. Which is very low!! She was also very skinny, like she weighed a lot less then she looked. The food provider tried to describe it as picking something up expecting it to be heavy only to find it was half the weight expected... Make sense? Anyways the kitty stayed overnight and went home to the foster parent in the morning.
Later another kitten came in. It was an older kitten maybe around 10 weeks, he looked a lot like Blade. Someone found him in a ditch and called the SPCA to come get him. He was incredibly vocal. He looked like he wanted a lot of attention. He was also super hungry and loved the food the food provider gave him. T'was funny the next morning one of the staff called the food provider freaked out because she thought the food provider forgot Blade at work. She had to explain that it was just another kitten that came in more then twice his age.
On Saturday when the food provider came in she came into another SPCA dog that was having a lot of trouble breathing laying out on the floor in the back. We took x-rays and found that the dog had what the dr called pneumothorax, it is when the chest gets filled with air around the lungs. The dr took out 3Liters of air out of the chest!!! Wow, where did all that come from? The dog felt so much better after that and was breathing normally for the rest of the night. Apart from that he had some big gashes on his legs which will need to be flushed and stitched but the SPCA only likes us to the minimal treatment in some cases so do the rest.
The food provider had to stay 2 hours late to help with a surgery come in. A pitbull attacked a small dog. Had large gashes to the neck that needed surgery to close up. The food provider left when it was all done although there was still another patient coming in... There was still another staff in and most everything was cleaned up from the surgery so she thought it should be okay if she left. She was exhausted...
Also there was a guinea pig that came in in the middle of the evening. Was found beside a dumpster somewhere in a box. We felt bad for the little guy but happy that he was here safe and sound.
The staff bought us one of those feather on a stick toys and we've been playing with it too. The staff set it up so that it is on our path to our cages so that we can play with it. Other times the staff play with it with us.
We've got to get some rest now, who knows what tomorrow night will hold.
Take Care and stay healthy,
Simon and Tony
