Happy Father’s Day everyone- especially to all you cat Daddies. David is pleased with his red bud tree even though it won’t be shipped until this fall.
Today is “every cat has a story” day. Stinky showed up one week before Prancie in 2004. Her name should actually be Lucky because she was lucky we found her so quickly on such a cold night. We are hermits and never go out at night, but our tv had broken and we took a quick trip to Walmart ( 1.5 miles away) to get a new one. When we got home, I heard meowing ( David claimed he didn’t hear anything) so I went looking. Stinky ran right to me, she was running down the road in a big panic with a mini icicle on her whiskers. Needless to say, we kept her- but, I did keep her segragated in a crate for a couple days until I could get her to the vet. I think it was a coincidence that 2 cats got dropped off a week apart, but I am thrilled that we found them.
For all you cat lovers and saviors, please be sure to get any new cats tested for FELV/FIV before you introduce them to the rest of your family. And once they are tested, be sure to slowly introduce them. I will write about that in another post, but there is a lot of info. on the internet about it if you can’t wait.
