help the black kitties!

I am also posting this through the other kits pages - sending out a plea to help a whole bunch of black kitties in trouble!

A vacated hoarder's home in the Chicago area was found to have close to 100 kitties in it - looks like most of them are black or tuxies. We all know it is so much harder for black kitties. (I have a special spot in my heart for a little black cat) Tree House Humane Society, Paws Chicago & Chicago Animal Control have been trapping the kitties, as they are boarding up the house today. Now they say they will not board it up until they are positive that there are no kits inside. Tree House has about 70 of the kits, but they are looking for foster help, adoption help, and surely monetary help.
Tree House is a very good place - they are big with TNR & they have a Community Cat placement too. The kitties look to be reasonably healthy as the man that had lived there was trying to feed them even after they foreclosed his house & now it is unhabitable. While I would love to foster, with 4 inside & a colony of 7, I cannot, but I will be sending some extra funds to help. (I am already a Member of Tree House & Paws)
The goal is to keep these lovely house panthers from being put down - as you know many ferals are. That is why they are awesome, cause they will take a feral group & place them in an area for rodent control or for barn cats. They are spaying/neutering/chipping & vaccinating all these babies. Please help if you are able! Here is their website

I was invited to join, but Momma cannot find the email, and we are even having a hard time trying to access any groups. We keep hearing nutting but crickets chirping around here......sigh


A thank you to all your thoughts & purrs regarding Scaredy. It made Momma smile, and we do apologize if it was kind of a graphic post. Did not mean to upset or offend anyone if we did.....

Well last week I had my blood & urine re-tested. All the levels are normal! I am to stay at a higher dose of prednisolone for another week, then drop to 1/4. I guess I will have to stay on the Denosil & Pepcid & Ursodiol. I am not happy about that, but the alternative is much worse. Once we finish the bag of ZD, Momma is giving us either Merrick Limited INgredient or Natural Balance duck & green pea. She went over all the canned food and eliminated a few that may be an issue too. So- so far so good. I cannot thank you all enough for your purrs
my Zekie & family, Bibi & Meep, Shanara, Smiley. thank you thank you.

Been trying to log in the past few days, and keep getting an error code. I can go to the page where our paw mails are, but then page is not found. So Please I am not in=gnoring you, I just cannot read them! I was stunned when this link actually worked.
Maizy goes back tomorrow for a blood test to see if levels have improved. We have lots of news to tell about the ultrasound & stuff, but hoping to be able to get back on with more. Maizers is eating, taking her meds very good and acting pretty normal. Only one barfie. She still looks like a tiny greyhound with her belly shaved, but she still knows she is a pretty girl. I will get back on for thank yous, pretty tired right now.

 

thank you for your purrs!

Well apparently I look like a had a fight with a shaver. Doc had to REALY shave my belly for the test - even my hips! My throat is shaved for the blood test they did, so I look pretty pitiful says Momma. My little tummy is all nekkid. Good news is that the vet did not think I would eat last night, but I ate a small can of food, and this morning I was looking for breakfast. Boy I have a bunch of pills to take, but Momma says if they work, it's just fine. I had one more dose of Tramadol today, but I prob don't need it now. So now we wait...for aspirate test results, for ultrasound results and for a full thyroid panel. Momma & The Dad were going to go camping this weekend, but they said no way - Momma doesn't want Nana to have to try & get all that med down me, and just in case I do get sicker (vet said sometimes a kitty will get worse before they get better)(greaaat) Nana would have no way to get me to a vet and well, Nana is wonderful, but is not so good in emergency situations at all. If I stop eating, doc will admit me right away. But keeping positive, I have not thrown up and have been eating and purring and carrying my baby-dog around, singing to her. I have been on some of the meds since Saturday, so Momma thinks getting them in my system right away should be working. I go back next week for a follow up to see if my levels are better. Thank goodness for CareCredit - I don't have insurance cuz they wouldn't cover anything IBD - so Momma said why bother, I will just use the card. Anyways, I do thank you all for the purrs, they are helping! I am to try more limited ingredient food (oh what fun...I am quiet opinionated regarding my food choices) Vet wants me to also try HP food. I had tried the ZD before & it gave me bad gas, so maybe we will try the HP. It is over $50 for a 7lb bag! It is hydrolized so that it will absorb better. I really only eat about 1/8 cup or so for a nite time snack, so MOmma is not sure what to do. Vet thinks Halp may have too much in it - even though it is grain free. Momma says it all gives her a headache - yeah there are plenty of foods, but what difference is it if a kitty won't eat them? well...thank you again my dear friends. You have no idea how much your thoughts help Momma. We so wish Catster was more fixed, so that we could all support each other the way we used to, but it's ok, we know you are there for us. Luv you my Zekie & family, Bibi & Meep, Smiley...you are true friends.....

Thank you for the POTP. I must ask for more for my sweet kitty girl. It appears that her IBD has now turned into the triad. Her liver is inflamed, the bile duct inflamed, and the pancreas is very angry. She got an extra dose of pain meds as the ultrasound pushing on her hurt. She has shown no sign of pain - once in a while she looks like maybe she feels icky, but that has always been the case. The vet has her on several meds, and wants me to have her eat only single ingredient food to try & calm it down. I think that our kiity guardian angels were watching over her, because Smitty, Tigger & Maizy were all due to go for their checkups. (Felix had his in Feb) Something told me to get her in first. That in itself is so lucky, as she is not showing any jaundice and was still active & eating. So we caught things before they escalated badly. We will have the official radiology report on Thursday. So her mild IBD that was controlled for years, has reared it's ugly head. Of course I will be scouring IBDKitties.net, and if anyone has aideas/help etc. Love to hear it. I feeled rather stunned, and yet blessed to have caught this early, and concerned that I did something to make it worse. She does like her bite of toast or egg which I did not think was too awful, I just hope I did not contribute to this. I will feel horrible - more than I already do to see her go through this stuff. I have had this little girl since she was 1 week old. I fed her every 4 hours round the clock, I saw her take her first real steps & try to run. Gave her "Baby Dog" to sleep with. I must pull her through this - please just say an extra prayer or meow for her. Thank you my friends. I will keep you posted.
A very worried Momma Renee

The quartet wants to wish all those Dadders of 2 and 4 leggers a wonderful day. Sometimes dadders don't get as much attention as mommas. But they are truly so important. So today we celebrate all those manly men that are special parts of all our lives. I love my The Dad so much. He is my big daddy for surezies. Also can I get a few purrs? I went to the vet Friday and all looks great but my liver levels biirubin is high, oc thinks its from my ibd, so I must have an ultrasound Tuesday. Hopefully out will be ok. I have 3 meds to take to help. Of course momma is worried. We will post udate once we know more. Meantime. Go headbonk and whisker kiss your dadders!

Thank you my friends for all the lovely bird-day wishes & gifts! I actually did have a nice day! I got a few bites of scrambled egg and toast. And I got a puffy new bed! It is almost like a cup & all squishy! No one has DARED to go in it either. Momma has been really busy with work, and trying to do yard stuff, so we have not been here lately. I sure don't act like a 10 year old. Momma says I am even getting more mellow with age. We had a bbq for Memorial Day, and one of the human sister's friends (they have been pals since age of 5, and they are 30 now) anyways, for some reason I always hissed at her - ALWAYS. Didn't like her really, even though she is nice & an animal lover. She always calls me Ninja Kitty. anyhow, when she was here for the bbq- I did not hiss. I looked at her while she spoke to me too. SHe looked at Mom, and Momma looked at her- they were like whaaa????? so I can bestow niceties - when I want. I have been even much more lovey to Momma & The Dad too. Course - The Dad - there are no words for my obsession with him. I am happy, healthy & trim - looking forward to at least another 10 years, or more!

Happy birthday my Maizy-Cat Kitty Girl. You are my special kitkin, and I bow to your every whim. I give thanks every day for you - even as you are sitting almost on top of the key board while I type this. I am your humble servant, and you my dear Miss Fuzzy-butt have given me so much love, and turned The Dad into a certified Cat Daddy. oh and guess what? I've got ripe bananas!!! Guess what I'm baking tomorrow? Just for you...ok for me & Nana too...

Hello to all our pals. Yes it has been a while. Momma has peeked in here & there, but we all know that sometimes things here work, and sometimes they don't. Honestly we got a bit frustrated, and there has been so much work to do, and some health issues & stuff round here, that Catster kinda took a back seat. Imagine how happy we were when popping in, to see that things will soon be revamped. None too soon, as I am sure we did lose many kitties that used to come here. Well, I am sure that we cannot comment on diaries ands such, so I wish to say hello to all, even though we were not here too much, our thoughts were of many of you - really truly they were. I hope the new year is going well for you all. The Kitty Quartet is doing well. Felix had some bad days with the cold and dampness, but he purrs like a freight train most times. He is still nervous around The Dad, but a tiny bit better. Smitty has dropped a few ounces, and looks better. Tigger has declared everything his as usual, and I well I will be approaching my 10th birthday in a few months. I really haven't slowed down either. I play when I choose, I smackety paw when I choose, and hiss easily - when I choose. I am now a chicken addict, and look out if Momma has cooked salmon. I am down to 1/4 of my prednisone every other day. That is about as far down as Momma can get it without me barfing. But that is better than 1/2 daily. The human sister is now in an apartment closer to her work, about 45 minutes away. Momma now has the room back as her office. Good & sad at the same time she says. We had wanted to try & send holiday cards out to our pals, but again, just did not get there. Momma is starting to feel better, and getting her old self back, so hopefully we will be here more, and the to-do list will get shorter. Well, again I wave my tiny paw to all of you, and send hugs to a certain mancat (you know who you are ahem my Zekie-poo) *blush* purrs from Maizy Cat
