Out of Town

As much as I hate it, I'll be out of town all next week. My sister will be coming by to take care of the girls. This should be the last time my job forces me to go to the Academy, thank gods!! I am NOT looking forward to this in the least, but I don't have a choice. I hate leaving Gaia knowing how much care she needs and that Debbie can only come by once a day. I'm hoping I can talk her into finding time before class in the morning for at least a quick stop as Gaia needs her antibiotic twice a day. I'll have to teach Debbie this weekend how to do her compress. She bloody hates getting the cream put on after now!! Screams like I'm killing her, but the vet has already told me it's just that she doesn't want it done, it's not hurting her. Already got a major attitude... lmao!!

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!!

Button Added

Added a button for a website I just saw. A friend posted a link about Stonewall in his Facebook. They've got a campaign, "Some People Are Gay. Get over it!". Wish they'd have something like that here. It's designed to help stop the homophobic bullying in UK schools. A GOOD THING!!!

I Like

Ok. Facebook is fun... I admit it... lol! I like the games. Clark got me hooked on Farkle and I found one similar to Bejeweled. The My Kitten is cool too. Found another friend from college I think. Sent her a message to check. Another one I'd looked for here and there over the years and wondered what happened to her.

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!!
