The Old Lady Who Needs Help

This special lady is doing absolutely fantastic after her major dental overhaul a little over a week ago. We've rolled back the clock, and she's acting like a kitten again.

This Old Lady has never asked for anything in her life. She's now old enough to drive and vote, and now, she needs help. Ophelia is a classy girl who's always been fat and healthy. In the last year, though, her age has finally caught ...

The Cats at Longstreet

Handsome Hank and Dashing Dean are ready to go to their new home. These two brothers are bestest buds. They're the only two kids left from their litter, and they play and wrestle with each other all day. They would love to go to a home together.

Shep-Date!

Shep's weight is up just over 2 lbs, and his wound seems to be healing well. He started scratching at it last night, so he earned himself another wrap this morning.

He is still pretty darned anemic, but it's finally coming up as he's getting healthier. We have started a medication called darbepoeitin to help him (and Clint) make new red blood cells, as well as started an iron supplement. The new medication isn't the cheapest out there, at about $100 for 9 doses, and they need a dose every week for several weeks. Still, we think they're worth it.

The biggest struggle we're having is that his kidney values are still a bit high. I'm not sure where this is coming from, but as everything else is improving so much, we've taken a watch-and-wait approach.

Hey, you guys!!

***UPDATE: We are good on the litter and mousse for a bit. Thank you all for your help!!****

We have 2 very smoll, very sick kittens here that aren't interested in food.

Could someone go pick up some of these today so we can try them? We ran out with all the panleukopenia kittens we were taking care of last week :-(

If someone could also grab a small bag of the World's Best Cat Litter for these guys, that would be super helpful. It's lighter color so we can better track how much diarrhea is coming out of them, and doesn't stick to them like clay litter does.

Thank you!!!!!

Hey, cat peeps!

If you haven't seen, we have some kittens. We need more Royal Canin baby cat loaf and Royal Canin baby cat dry. We also need a bag of Yesterday's News for our orphans.

Oh, and we're out of Fancy Feast dry in the green bag.

Never a dull moment here, I tell you...

Came in this morning, went to go take care of Tailer. There was lochia (bloody vaginal discharge that's normal after giving birth) all over Tailer and Effie's "suite". We needed to change the towels out. Tailer is still VERY protective of her babies. Kristin and I can move her, but I don't know that she would let anyone else do it, and we have to immediately move the babies to her or she gets really upset.

I pick up Tailer. I tell Devon, okay get the babies over here so she doesn't get upset.

Devon: (hesitates) uhhhh. There are too many babies here??

She wasn't mistaken.

Effie decided it was time to have her babies, as it turns out. Instead of Tailer and Tailer's 4 babies, it was Tailer with all of her babies and all of Effie's babies.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA The girls must think it's April 1. Good one, ladies. Good one!

We now have added 2 tuxedo babies and 3 gorgeous swirly tabbies, in addition to Tailer's 2 blacks, 1 white and brown tiger, and the giant brown tabby.

UPDATE 4/202020:
Ophelia went to surgery last week. We extracted all of her terrible teeth. I am thrilled to report that she is doing AWESOME, and the enormous open wound on her right cheek is already nearly fully healed.
We have successfully raised enough to cover well over half of her procedure. Thank you so much for all your help.

Shep-Date!!

Shep's wound finally looked good enough today and he seemed good enough today for us to brave sedating him and attempting to close it.

This sort of thing is tricky. You have to remove all the dried out tissue along the skin edges, and then carefully peel away any dried out sort of tissue covering the entire wound bed, or the surface of the wound without skin. If you leave the dried out stuff there, the skin won't "stick down" and the closure will fail.

I really didn't think we had enough skin laxity to close it, but as I worked through the wound, we discovered that there was enough, astonishingly, and it closed well!

This wound should now heal very rapidly, as long as the skin flaps stick down to the tissue underneath, and no infection sets in.

Go, Shep, Go!!

We did repeat blood work today, and unfortunately, that still doesn't look amazing. We'll keep working it forward for him. He's on the right path but we need to help guide him.

Tailer and family update:

The kittens are doing well. They are clean and plump, and momma is taking good care of them.

Tailer still isn't eating, and broke with severe nasal congestion overnight. Still, she's much brighter and more comfortable than she was. We started meds for the kitty cold and are continuing her pain meds and tummy support.

We plan on keeping her and the family here for a few days, and until she's feeling better, but would prefer to move her into a foster home before too long.

She is a funny girl who growls and hisses when first approached, but once she decides you are safe, she starts purring and rolls over and touches your hand gently with her paw and asks for pets ❤ she's going to need someone gentle and understanding to help build her confidence in hoomans.

Things happen for a reason.

It was a good thing a patient and friend (and blood related cat to one of my own cats) is in a diabetic crisis and Kristina Clifford was up taking care of her late last night. If she hadn't been, she never would have seen the text messages.

It was a good thing that Gemma Kenworthy has a sick tiny kitten we needed to go look at late last night, and then we had to go to the clinic to get tiny kitten some tummy meds.

It was a good thing I took one extra second to put on real pants before we left the house to do all of these things.

It was a very good thing I have a habit of walking through and looking at all of our in-house patients every time I'm here.

It was a most excellent thing that Sierra Hall couldn't sleep.

And it was an equally excellent thing that Kristin Lassiter was up trying to resuscitate a dying neonatal kitten and was therefore also looking at her phone.

You see, things really do happen for a reason.

When I checked on Tailer, our heavily pregnant kitty who came to us several weeks ago with a mutilated tail remnant we needed to amputate and a healing but previously broken pelvis, she was in labor.

Of course she went into labor late on a Saturday night. That's what they always do.

I wasn't sure she could push the babies through her pelvis, so I ended up here at the clinic for hours watching and waiting to see what she could do.

By 2 am, it was clear she wasn't getting anywhere. Kristin came in just after midnight because I had bad feelings. Sierra was amazing enough to go pick up Kristina and get here by about 2:30.

By 3 am, we had her on the table. Within 15 minutes, all 4 of her babies were out. By 3:45, she was in recovery.

She never would have been able to have these kittens on her own. Three of them were in one uterine horn, and the last had the left uterine horn all to himself. That means the big guy had 50% of her uterine blood flow and all those nutrients to himself. He's HUGE.

Tailer doesn't feel super great this morning, but she's okay. She's not eating yet. She is drinking and made an enormous poopy in the last few hours.

When we came in midday to check on her and the kids, we realized we forgot to put up the cardboard on the crate. We never forget that, but at 4:xx am, you forget things. One of the little black girls had managed to push her way through it and was all by herself on the floor, screaming bloody murder when we got here.

Needless to say, the cardboard is up.

I think Tailer and her babies will be just fine. The babies aren't too skinny, even though she doesn't have much milk yet. I'm hopeful that she'll start eating like her normal, robust self within a few hours.

Never a dull moment.

I am so honored to have a team that can help with random emergency C-sections at 2 or 3 in the morning on a Saturday night/Sunday morning. And that they can function without sleep. And that they are good enough and dedicated enough that 2 people were able to successfully resuscitate 4 drugged kittens.

Even in flip flops.

Kitten Watch 2020:

Tailor is in labor. No kittens yet, and I am terrified she's going to have trouble with her broken pelvis, but it's too early to make a call about taking her to surgery yet.

Be brave, Momma.

FRI 4/17/2020: Yet another update. 2:30 pm

We have confirmed that we are receiving 3 females this afternoon, not all 6. We have 1 foster home secured, need 2 more.

*****************************************************************************

We are taking in the last of the intact females from the hoarding situation from a few weeks ago. We don't know if they're healthy or not, pregnant or not, but no matter what, we need fosters.

There will be 6 females. We'll get them started on vaccinations and treat anything that needs to be treated, but it would be sensational if we could find some bathrooms or something in the area to foster them until we get things sorted out.

Fosters help us get to know these cats in a more natural and realistic home setting, helps reduce the stress on the cats, and helps us by providing more individualized care.

We will try to have them processed and ready to move out late this afternoon/early evening.

Please email us at [email protected] if you think you might be able to help.

We are closed to all intakes for the near and maybe indefinite future until we 1) Get cats adopted; and 2) Get our reeeeediculous veterinary care bill paid down.

Otherwise Dear Devon Reed Cunningham might strangle me, and we wuv our Dear Devon.

I don't know if you'll remember, but about 3 weeks ago we took in UnMaid Marion and her 3 kittens. Those kittens are growing up fast, and they're only a few weeks away from weaning and moving into homes.

Here's an update on Marion, Ava, Mojo, and Molly

Update on Clint Lazarus Eastwood, as requested!

Clint has made many girlfriends these past several days, let me tell you. He's still on aggressive fluids and trickle feeding through is nasogastric (NG) tube, but he also eats on his own, and eats pretty well, and has started grooming again. He's using his potty box and has consistently gained weight.

In a lot of ways, his blood work is so much better. His anemia, isn't responding, though. and he has an unusual type of hair loss along his breastbone that worries me. You see, cats can do this very rare, special thing with a particular sort of very bizarre hair loss when they have certain kinds of cancer. I'm worried that might be what we're seeing.

We did a quick ultrasound on him last night here at the clinic. There was a trace of free fluid here and there, but he's been so sick that I'm not all that surprised by that. And we've been pushing his IV fluids pretty hard, too. Still, it's enough reason for me to be even more worried.

We set up for a professional ultrasound on our boy for later this afternoon so we can try and get some answers. To be specific, we're looking for pancreatic cancer. Anyone who knows me well enough knows that I lost my mom and 2 cats to pancreatic cancer over the years, and it's not a friend of mine.

In the meanwhile, there's sunshine. Walks around the clinic. All the noms and water he wants. Stalking the birds. Car rides to and from Casa Kristin for overnight care. And so much love.

Keep him in your prayers.

Shep-Date!

**GRAPHIC PHOTOS**

Shep's wound continues to improve. He's still eating well, but he hasn't gained any weight. I am considering lightly sedating him tomorrow to place what are called mattress sutures across the skin to help with closure. There's enough loose skin around it that we can cover about half of it already.

Unfortunately, his blood work isn't where I want it to be. It's easy to forget he's only 4 days into his journey. His anemia hasn't improved, his liver values really haven't moved much, either, and his kidney values are trending up. We've decided to place an IV catheter to give him fluid support starting today.

We'll keep at it, and see what happens.

Keep him in your thoughts.

Shep seems to be doing well. He's still having soft stool, and he's still rather jaundiced, but he's active and still eating like a starving pig. I am so happy with how his wound is progressing!

We're sending out recheck blood work today to see how things are coming along on the inside.

I am grateful and honored to part of this guy's path to being whole and well again.

So, we take our pets 🐶 (Tux), 🐱 (Ginger) and 🐱 (Bowie) to the 😻 Harmony Hill Animal Hospital 😻 and we have 5 amazing heart loving professionals who always take such great care of our fur family members. I am working on putting together 5 Kindness Bags to take to them and would love to have 5 pet loving friends to help me with it. I am sponsoring some items myself. Who's in with me? Raise your hand 🙋‍♀️🙋‍♂️below ⤵️Thank you! 💖🙏💖😽
Bringing you 48 cans of this tomorrow. They are the 3 oz cans.
🔔🔔🔔We have received interest but no adoptions yet! Please PM me if you think you can open your hearts and your home to this adorable puppers Miss Piggy!! Saving her life and giving her a forever home will also save the life of another pup needing a foster home. While piggy is an absolute joy to have in my home, I can not continue my rescue & foster missions for any more dogs until she finds her forever home ❤️🔔🔔🔔 Please help spread the word and share my posts! https://www.facebook.com/1563510016/posts/10214705845350786?d=n&sfns=mo
***PLEASE SHARE*** Miss Piggy has yet to be adopted! We had 2 possible adopters, however they were not the right fit. We are determined to find that perfect match for her ❤️🤔 If you believe you are her perfect match, or know someone who is, please share with them and PM me, or fill out the adoption application. I will post a link in the comments, feel free to copy and paste and share! Ideal candidates will have a large fenced in yard, no other dogs, children over the age of 8, previous dog ownership experience (bully breed experience is a plus!). Piggy is 1.5-2 years old, considered a “pocket bully” mixed breed, spayed, up to date on vaccines, great with kids, okay with cats (she sees them as hissy toys and likes to chase them if they run, but she is not aggressive toward them). She currently is being fostered in my home with 3 cats, 5 birds and 2 children and is doing fantastic since her rear hip surgery 2 and a half months ago (see her running video in the comments below!) hard to believe she had no use of her rear leg when I rescued her and now she’s thriving! Please PM me with any questions you may have, or for the link to adopt her. Due to her medical expenses, a majority of which we raised funds and paid off, we have her adoption fee based on the remainder of the payoff amount of her hip surgery debt. Her adoption fee is $450.
Samantha Roberts this is the new vet clinic in your area that I was telling you about. I personally know (and have worked with in the past) most of them here. Check it out for your big puppers! Promise you won’t be disappointed ❤️
question for the vet: What is your recommendation for cat food? I don' t feel that the cat food out in stores are really giving my kitties the best in nutrition
So good to know you have a clinic!!
I was in that shopping plaza the other day (I have a weakness for Arby’s) and saw your new digs! So very exciting!
Our ceilings can't compare, and neither do our pigeons :-)
