better day

Cleo is better today. The vet visit was uneventful. Cleo might disagree, after the sneak attack from behind, for a temp check. Anyway, she did have a fever, which I knew, but was not dehydrated, and seemed to be in pretty good shape otherwise. She got a antibiotic shot, which was nice, no doses of clavamox twice daily.

She's not 100%, but playing, and even engaging her foster sibs. She had lost some weight, from 2.2lbs, down to 1.14lbs. As of this morning, she is back up to 2.0.


Cleo plans her attack on Detroit


The other to crazies seem to have calmed down a tad, and now all 3 love attention. Cleo got a lot of attention while she was sick, so she really likes it now, an Detroit and Beulah both stand on the kitty condo and kneed it while waiting for a little attention.


Beulah dares Detroit to pounce


Unfortunately, we found out this morning that the shelter had a cat test positive for Panleukopenia, so the cat room is now quarantined for at least 2 weeks, so I have these guys for at least that much longer. That's fine for them, and me, but I hate that there will be no adoptions for that long, and we will all keep our fingers crossed that no other cats get it. Here's a link for more information on panleukopenia. http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=1+1352&aid=222

Too cute!
One is just like a cat we rescued from under the house, another just like her offspring!

Good for you! Check out ally cat allies, and learn about the TNR program. Feral cats can be trapped, neutered and released and live happy lives. We have 1 we trapped, and we have a heated house for her, and feed her, and now a couple others come by regularly.

Good to hear that Cleo is on the rebound. And great photos - those three are as cute as any we've seen all year.

I'm glad you were able to get them out of the shelter before the panleukopenia shutdown.
