Mother Hubbard's Cupboard

A look into the mind of one of the most random, crazy people in all the land.

We Found a Stray, Injured Kitten

And she was skin and bones. She also has a very bad eye infection and will most likely not be able to see out of one eye. There is also a chance that it is actually a respitory disease, which would mean even the "no kill" shelters would euthenize her.

Pray for her and us. I really don't want to have her euthenized....if it is the respitory infection, maybe we could continue to keep her in the pet carrier in the garrage and give her antibiotics and food/love till she could recover. Pray it isn't that.

Mrs. Hollywood and I are praying for your feline friend. We adopted a desperate adult female who showed up outside our home while I was at seminary (in 2001). She was down to below six pounds, hungry and dehydrated (and it was cold, since it was October).

Athena is today chubby (some 11 or 12 pounds), and quite a buddy. Her maternal instinct kicked in when Leo was born.

Cats are survivors, so hopefully with TLC and prayer, your kitten will make it.

Thank you Father. Now all we need is either our neighbor to want her, or for mom to get soft and allow for a second cat to replace Spookie who we lost about two years ago.

Maybe I need to remind her that God provides for our needs, especially since she still has dreams of her former cat.

It was not upper respitory problems (at least not as we know). So we just have to wait 3 days and then we can adopt her for $60. For that they spay her, give her her fist set of shots, and put the trackig chip in her.

Hope all goes well for you and your kitty. We've had a succession of cats "find" us over the years. The last one was last October. She wasn't sick, but she was in heat, so we put her in our garage to avoid another litter of semi-feral cats around here. We ended up with her when none of the shelters around here had room for her.

Apparently we're going to be adopting her ourselves if she is still there on Thursday. As of today she doesn't have upper respitory disease, and her eye seems to be doing better with ointment. So :-D....just in time for me to leave for seminary :-(.
