She'll keep the leg, but it's going to be best to have that one foot declawed when she's old enough. With her not using the toes and the claws not retracting, it's too likely she could get hung on something and hurt herself. I've seen the damage that can be done to a cat who's foot works fine when they get hung up. Zilla's done it a few times, once with bloody results.
The vet also said it'll be about 6 months for skin to really be clear on where it's died off. I think under her arm pit is going to take the longest as she can't extend the leg so there's less circulation of air under there. He said there's also a chance fur WILL grow back. :D She'll go back in two weeks for her first vaccinations... don't really want to get them done as I don't like the things, but with where she came from, a few rounds of shots are needed. She'll also get her FIV and Flk testing. Praying both are negative.
In the mean time, she's just a bouncy little kitten who looks really rough... lol!!

The new baby is doing good. Gaia got her compresses this morning and ended up getting mad. Some of the skin is peeling back so I was trimming it a bit and there was... hell... I guess you'd just call it 'crud' in places so I was picking it off to keep the area clean for putting on the Dermalone. Well, one place appears to be pretty tender and she gave a good yelp to let me know! Going to call and see if Saturday or Monday will be best to take her back in to let the vet have a look at what's loosened up already. I'm sure they'll be able to clean her up much better than me... I'm so worried about hurting her. I'm glad she's doing well though!!

Still tending the outdoor kitties. Got an email in to my vet to see if they know of anyone who does trap neuter release in the area. Also if they do or know of anyone who does spays/neuters for ferals. I don't have the means to keep them confined after surgery... that's a bigger issue for me than the cost really. I don't want to trap them and have it done only to release them and have something go wrong and there be nothing I can do about it. It would be a girl that took up here and she would have a daughter... ~sigh~ Spot is a gorgeous little girl. She's getting braver about not running when I come out, but still no way to get hold of her. I've taken one of the girls wands out and tried to play with her a bit, but she isn't interested. They play with the stuffed mice I put outside, but only when I'm not looking... lol!! Her brother Tabb is still extremely skittish. They see me petting Gremlin when he comes by but don't seem interested in getting any pets themselves.
Nothing much else going around here. Getting ready for the cook-out in September. It's a community/friend/family thing we have every year. We used to cook a whole pig, but one year we got a bad one. After that disaster we started just getting big hams and cooking those. It starts on Friday afternoon and goes all night with the BBQ ready around noon that Saturday. The fun part is that night and hanging out. That Saturday is the only time I see a lot of my relatives. I've got a couple of friends I invite from work who show sometimes. No Catster families live that close to me so none of them to come.
Off to be bored I guess. Kind of sucks that school has started back...

And I don't see a post on this... guess I never got around to getting in here. My sister made an etsy site! http://catcessities.etsy.com. She's made four sales so far. She's sold two beds on ebay and two in Catster auctions to raise money. Three of the four went to the family of Taz, Ko, etc... they recently lost a member, Boots. I do hope Taz, Ko and Marvel Ann shared their nap mats with him and he liked. Hazel Lucy got the other as a gift from another kitty for all she and her mom do on Catster. So far the reviews are good. The kitties are enjoying the nap mats/toys. Still trying to get the word out so maybe she'll sell more. Smudge is loving it though... he really enjoys Debbie crocheting... he gets to play with the yarn and snatches the occasional toy for himself... lol!

Almost forgot! Here's the link to the etsy site the family mom started to sell stuff to help out. She has THE most beautiful cards!! And we've been told the mats and tents are excellent too!!

My sister didn't sell any of the last round of nap mats she put up on ebay. Does anyone have any advice on how to get people to look? They're really nice beds and my girls love them!! She's sold one, but as it's a birthday present, we'll have to wait until his birthday before hearing how much he loves his new bed.

**Debbie has decided she's not happy with how the pink bed turned out so she's not putting it up for sale. The earth tone one I'm going to post and try to sell for her on ebay.**

I'm hoping she'll want to make some to sell so I'm trying to talk her into it. She'll be out of work next month when the company she works for moves out of state, so depending on what she decides to do next, she might have some time to make more.
This is Lilly knocked out in the bed. I'll have to get the specifics of what kind of yarn she used and all that. It's two colours because she didn't have enough of the purple to do what she ended up coming up with for the design.
This is Kittanna settled into the bed. It's mostly her territory. She claimed it the instant I put it on the couch! Strangely enough, it was originally made with Taillee in mind, but she's the only one I've yet to catch napping in it... LMAO!! Taillee prefers her heated bed to pretty much anything I guess. But Kittanna hardly even wants to sleep with ME anymore after this came in the house!
I'll post updates if I get Debbie to make more of these. We haven't come up with a name or anything for them yet. A friends suggested Snuggle Cup, but I don't know if this will be the only kind she'll make or if she'll come up with other designs for them. We'll have to brainstorm on that one. She's also trying to think up other ideas for stuff to make for kitties and might even do something for dogs. :)
