Filed under: cat — Tags: , , , — admin @ 2:45 pm

This is Wilma she came to us yesterday or i picked her up yesterday
the photo is not very good but its hard to take her picture as she just wants to be
petted and loved so i cant stay that far away from her to actually take a photo…
She has a bad eye infection so but we are working on it…
I am glad she isnt out today in the storm with her cold but cuddled up in my warm house
she will stay her till she is well and can be in the store to find a forever home..

Time

Filed under: days — admin @ 11:10 pm

Today Frida was feeling a bit sick so she wasn’t going to dance which meant I would get a evening off driving *whoho*
I was thinking of all I was going to do first some laundry and paper work boring bills and school papers that needed to be taken care off especially since this weekend is going to be sooooooooo busy..

I was happily thinking about all I could do this night while driving home from the gym
(Yapp I got there finally)…
Just now I am done whit all the boring stuff and its well past my bed time *hehe* so much for playing with illustrator or perhaps adding some style to this poor blog or even writing a long text about the upcoming weekend with Frida performing at the big Wachovia stadium and Lovisa’s volleyball tournament.

Well another evening perhaps,,,,
I really do need a new lap top so I could do these sorts of things from bed.
My old lap top wont start unless you want to wait a hour or so and I am asleep before I got the dang thing to load any programs and internet well lets say it connect sometimes and I mean sometimes…

Well after all it’s been a great day I am so happy I got to go to the gym I decided we can’t eat dinner together as often as I want or I will never see the gym and I talked the girls through making dinner while driving… I knew I wouldn’t get any as I was going to be home only 10 mins before we had to leave for Frida’s dance,,, but she was feeling ill and we had a candle lit dinner, lasagna made by the girls whom even sat the table while I toke a swift shower

Off to bed I am
Smiling
It’s been a long but good day
And I have plenty of other days to do things on

Why i do this

Filed under: cat — Tags: , , , — admin @ 9:35 am

I wounder sometimes why i do this
its so much work, and it tears your heart out every time I leave a kitten in the store.
But it is great each time i meet a new mom or dad an adopter whom eagerly listens to what i have to tell of thiere new little kitten..

then I see photos like this
and i know why i do this
why i go through ringworms fleas, and bites and scratches and all the worries that comes along with a small small life

I do it because its so damn rewarding to see a kitten come out of its shelll gain confident and grow in all the ways possible knowing he or she has a bright future ahead in a loving family
I do it for all the purrs i get and all the little paws that dance over me when we play
i do it cause i coudl not just go aroudn knowing there are kittens out in the cold with illnesses and with out food and most importendly with out love and a future

i give me hope i guess that is what it does

Delwyn

Yesterday Friday the 19 January 2008 I kissed Delwyn bye bye in the morning she was laying as a warm little purring bundle in my bed where she had been all night.

When I came back from work I found a different cat she was cold and almost gone,
in a very twisted awkward position.

I had to rush her to the vet, I was in panic I have to admit, I wrapped her in a baby blanket and I drove with her in my lap she was in such horrible pain I was not prepared for this.

Stupidly I had thought her pain would come slow and she would one day not be so mobile not so curious and I would then know the end was close.

But it didn’t happen that way, in a few hours it happened so fast.
I wished I had not gone to work that day.
I wish I had listened to my self and stayed home. But then I have felt to stay home with her every morning since she got sick.

It was very fast luckily I live just a few houses from the vet close enough I was actually for a second thinking if I should just run with her in my arms.

I am pretty sure that she felt how much we truly love her and that she seldom had to feel alone and I doubt she ever felt unprotected. She was a very loving cat and would have grown up to a rare beauty if she had been allowed.

We miss her terrible, we even miss the fact she sort of woke us a couple of times each night as she change position or rather whom she snuggled up with, she used to sleep very close to our faces her soft purring was what woke me up each time she came back.

I am grateful for the time I had her and I am happy to be part of a rescue organization whom actually care about the cats that will not survive and whom will not be adopted and bring money back, an organization that really care about the animal them self first and most. And Delwyn was one lucky little cat who was found by them.

Worries

Filed under: cat — Tags: , , — admin @ 4:11 pm

Its monday and i have still not heard a word from the vet…
This morning I stayed home extra long with Delwyn not sure if it was her purring my belly or the fact it was freezing today that made me unable to get out of bed.

This weekend we left her brother Vaughn at the store, his so handsome and so spolied (by me)
I miss his morning and evening routine that involde at least a half hour of playing fetch.
He is still a bit skiddish jumps for every odd sound and hides when people he dont know enter his room.
But His such a lovely cat i hope people will see that in the store. His purr are the moste amazing on i ever heard and by now i heard a few..

it is very hard to foster kittens for a longer time and then give them up and as soon as a kitten gets sick the fostering time just gets longer plus you may just have that one and not the whole litter which means you get close to the kitten in a whole other way.

Markus one of my former foster kittens a little orange tabby i will miss him forever i think, i have his photo at work and by my computer at home and i just finsihed a scrap book page about him this weekend.
But i know His new Daddy and he has a great home and one weekend i will have time to go visit him and his adopted sister Gracie, whom I also fostered. she is a beauty and has a really funny background storie.

I learned when giving Markus up that when a cat gets sick and you tend to them its extremly hard to give them up so therefor Delwyn is ours.

when and if she gets well i will adopt her no one in the family would be able to give her up after all off this, even my mom called from Sweden when she got back home after the holidays and asked how Delwyn was doing and when i told her there was a small chance that it wasn’t FIP she said you cant give her up you have to send her here then…

well soon i hope the vet will call me soon i will get the result i dread and yet want so badly. I dont know how i will deal with it if the DNA says its FIP even if I try to tell my self it probably is, the fact she is still not worse keeps feeding my hope.. she is such a little cutie
The vet just called and told me the results had not yet come… (sighs deeply)
I asked him how long a cat normally lives with wet FIP his replay was simply I am very suprised that she is still alive
if it comes back showing FIP

I have to get back to work as i wont get any answer today i will try not to worry about it

Dewlyn back at the Vet

Filed under: cat — Tags: , , — admin @ 9:21 pm

Today was the Vet appointment at the vet I take my own pets, it felt good to go there they all know me well… Delwyn was not whining when I toke her she just looked up at me with those sad huge eyes of hers, she has lost her voice it seems to come and gone a bit but she still purrs loud and clear some days more other less.

When we came in to the doc he was checking the paper work from the other vet and could not find any blood samples so I told him just to take new once, he looked at Delwyn and softly felt her belly, he opened her mouth and said it that it looked like FIP at a first glance. I almost broke down when he said it and asked what can I do for her, and please don’t just say keep up with what you do?? And how much longer do she has? And what will happen next? All these questions that constantly buzz around in my head came at once.

He said something about that she shouldn’t really be with us now and that it was odd that she wasn’t getting worse and that was what spoke against FIP.
He was going to take the liquid sample from her belly and asked if I could hold her or not,
Not of cause, I am a huge wimp when it comes to my pets…
I turned around and a tech had to hold the lil kitten while he toke the sample she whined just a little but His reaction was priceless for me…
“This is interesting it doesn’t look like FIP at all it looks like urine”
I could tell he was surprised and my doctor usually doesn’t say anything until he has test results.
So now my hopes are up a lot, but I have to be a realist in all this it can still be FIP I have to realize that.
The liquid sample is going off for DNA test a test that is 99% certain as far as I been able to read on the net.
When they did a blood simply Delwyn was crying loudly so loud that I was standing in a corner with my fingers in my ears and finally pleaded “please stop, are you not done soon” they asked me if I wanted to wait in the waiting room and I said “yes” and ran off… sheeeeeesh I am such a wimp. But she was screaming and crying and finally growling and hissing she got a light of fighting spirit left in her that little thing…
She peed all over the table so they got a urine sample too.

And we see her as the gentlest and sweetest cat ever (hehe)..

The Doc gave her a worm medication and prescribed antibiotics, as she isn’t treated for anything right now. He also said it could be a defect she was borne with if it’s not FIP.

He checked her catoracs and said that was not a regular catoracs that cats get by age it was a defect she was borne with and it did have an impact on her vision, but had nothing to do with the illness, there was other eye disease connected with FIP.
An operation would run somewhere about $2000 to $3000 and they could not do it here.
But he thought and I do to that it was nothing to bother with right now.

We haven’t seen that her vision is bad she isn’t clumsy at all.
The DNA test will take a few days
So now we have to wait again and wait and wait.

As soon as we got home Delwyn headed straight for my lap and purred loudly then for her food bowl she eats and eats and I have seen a increase in her eating of dry food and a decrease of her eating of human baby food (or erhm she is spoiled and don’t like ham)

When Lovisa got home later in the afternoon she called me and said she felt Delwyn was better she had more of her glimmer back in her eyes.. Can it be the antibiotics??
Who knows????

A few more long days of wait….
Alice
