Arrival Story:
I was born on a horsefarm in cold December. In Feburary 2014 I was picked up in a group of kitties for TNR. But when I got to the fix-it place, I was too small and very sick with an upper respiratory infection. Been trying to get free of the snotty nose every since. Been through several antibiotics and still working at it. But Mom and Dad have fallen in love with me so they are calling me a failed foster! This be my home now.

On June 26, 2014, after months of trying to overcome my snotty nose and terrible eye problems I had surgery to remove my infected eye. A very sad thing because Mom feels like she failed. But almost immediately my health improved. I am playful, eating better, no more snot rockets. I am happy. It just takes humans a little getting used to this.

Finally Doing Better

Phew - it been a tough time. The night after my sinus surgery I had a very hard time breathing. My humanz did all kinds of odd things like taking me in the steamy bath, putting drops in my nose. I mean really, I can't breathe so you put something ELSE in my nose? Put on some more antibiotics, then steriod nose drops. Finally things started to get better. Mom talked with Dr. Stacey and everyone hoping the snot sample shows something cause no way we gonna do that again. I started playing again and right now my nose is pretty clear! I finish antibiotic in couple days. Then we find out how things really are.

Sadly, my procedure did not go well. The vet was unable to irrigate my sinuses. The congestion just be too thick. Attempts irritated my nasal passages even more till I cannot breathe. I was asleep and knew nothing of this, of course. I ended up intubated until Dr. Stacey could get things controlled. Good thing mom not be there. I am home now on new antibiotics, a heating pad. Ate some supper. One good news is Dr. Stacey was able to get a specimen to culture, so maybe we be able to treat my sinus issue once and for all.


Me at Vet!

Yeah, I be sick again. Can't ever seem to get over the snot-rockets. Dr. Stacey wanted me in today before I get sicker and they are doing a kind of sinus wash and culture and stuff. It was pretty confusing this morning in very cold weather for mom to suddenly pack me up and take me to the vet. I pretty scared cause I don't like it there. I don't like being away from brother Bob. Mom waiting now for Dr. Stacey to call about how I did.
