Yep, I did it again. Rescue I mean....UGGH. It was an emotional day yesterday, as I brought Jack in one last time to the vets - my kindly Dr. Boehm (aka Dr. Hottie). He wasn't available when I made the appointment for Jack at 4 pm., but I found him waiting for me when I came in. He wanted to be there for Jack. Thanks Dr. B. It was still questionable, and still is, if I made the right decision or not, and its so hard to tell when they are not displaying the serious symptoms that lead you to treat the animal in the first place. He was so quiet, and looking at me lovingly. How do you say goodbye to that? But I did, after it was reassured to me that whatever was going on was due to his lungs, or heart, and that all the money in the world might buy him more time, it wouldn't be cured. So, I did it. I then brought him home to bury him in my mini pet cemetery. I must make a little cross to place on his grave, in between the rose bushes.
Well, look who we have here. This cat, Lefty (I know, I need to come up with some better names) I've written about from at least a year ago when he appeared at Baldwin. He is a very very nice cat, very dirty, unneutered, and now very sick. I heard him a few days ago wheezing, and sneezing, and said I must get him seen. So, I got him. So, hopefully I can get him in to the clinic tomorrow, treated, neutered, and I think I may have a foster for him, through the kindness of the girl that has been accompanying me on my rounds on Sunday - the crazy girl Sheryl. With a heart of gold I might add. Fingers crossed. Lefty is doing mighty fine in my bathroom - after work I will go in and try to clean him with towels, he is so very dirty, but look how very pretty he is underneath! :)
I have not seen pregnant mama on Second since the day I should have gotten her. I could kick myself. Although there is another cat sneezing like mad - its so sad to know there is another sick one. Lefty was easy to get because he is so very sweet. He sleeps in a tote I had placed there about a month ago. It had the tiniest opening, but that big kitty managed to crawl in and out of there. Amazing what their bodies can do. Speaking of, I saw the BIGGEST raccoon this morning on Sixth in the garage, and he squeezed his body through the tiniest opening when he saw me coming toward him. BRAT. I am sure he came back as soon as I left and gobbled most of the food that the six cats there were depending on.
OK, gotta get ready for work. There are so many updates I want to share but never seem to have the time. Winky may be going to her new home on Saturday, and I will be making an appointment for her spay today. She is much better also after her trip to the vet on Monday - that was a scare. Her limp and lethargy seem to be gone. Thanks Tracy for taking care of Winky!
Have a great day!
