Wiped him down using pet wipes last night, and he enjoyed it so much he kept rolling around. Many were concerned about his injured eyelid. I have been cleaning it with colloidal silver twice a day. It is healing well.
He is another cat that knows how to open doors. He escaped the toilet both nights. What's with me meeting cats that are masters in opening doors?! 😑
(He is confined in the toilet for now because he sprays.)
Reposted his lost and found notice on FB, but no response. Where is his owner? 😔
I was reeling when I first received the diagnosis for #Abbygirl this morning. Now that I've had some time to process the news I'm in a much better place, though. Yes, the condition is incurable. However, we are blessed to have caught it before physical symptoms of it brought us in. Now we have an opportunity to start interventions while she still has a healthy appetite and weight. From what I am reading in my research, these interventions could help her have a good quality of life for a few years yet.
One thing that happened this morning that was really special was the vet assistant who checked us in had volunteered at Paws and Claws from 2006 to 2012, and she remembered Abby from her first time there! She was SO happy to see that Abby had found her forever home, and it was obvious to her that Abby is well-loved and well cared for. She told me how people could see that Abigail is a beautiful cat, but once they met her they didn't want to adopt her due to her not-so-friendly personality. She shared that the more time volunteers would spend with Abby, the more they saw the sweet kitty under that stand-off-ish, feisty exterior. The volunteers knew it was going to be difficult to find someone willing to be patient with her and allow her to get to the point where she was ready to come to them. She and the other volunteers had been so concerned that Abby would die in the shelter. As sad as this medical diagnosis is, she could see that Abby is having a happy ending to her story after all.
I still grieve daily for Ziva. But had I not lost her, I would not have seen Abby's story -- and Abby quite possibly WOULD have died in the shelter. So as horrible as losing Ziva is - and I still HATE FIP - I can see that good is already coming from that tragedy. And tomorrow, a another kitty will be coming to his new #fureverhome here with Miss Garfield, Abigail, and I. This has been in the works for a couple weeks, and after making sure that it will be safe for the health of all 3 with Miss Garfield's and Abby's recent diagnoses, it is full steam ahead to this new chapter of our lives. <3 #adoptdontshop#ilovemycats#catmom
