Caturday Saturday


It's a nice Caturday here. We are all napping. Mewmie is on the computer, downloading some pix of the kittens she took today. She was gone a lot yesterday and said she has one of her favorite "stinky goodness" dinners planned--Chinese food and a Peach Lambic beer...that's her version of canned food for us, HaHaMeow.

Coco's kittens are now 13 weeks old and just went in for their second V.E.T. visit and the vet commented on how slinky and hardbodied all these kittens are! Yep, like the athletes they are! Jasper's heart murmur can't be heard anymore and the rest of the kittens are stable, Grade I or less and no louder and that's good. Buttercup's murmur is the loudest, a Grade II but it is more than likely the same kind of valvular issue other Furrydance kittens have had, and they grew out of it (Brighton had 3 leaky valves as a kitten and his murmur went away--but Mewmie was concerned so she had him ultrasounded by a animal heart doctor just to be sure it wasn't something that needed medication or might shorten his life).

Clover's eye ulcer healed up, but then he got something else and the vet is doing some tests to diagnose it. It might be Chlamydia, a bacterial infection, so he is now on antibiotics and an eye wash and ointment and he is already much better. Mewmie says she is very frustrated by all these eye problems, as she takes such good care of us, but sometimes viruses or bacteria can be in the mommycats mouth and kittens get it when she cleans them. But Teri rushes them right into the vets when she sees something wrong (that means taking them in to work with her, she works at a cat V.E.T.) and everyone gets better real fast. It's surprising how many people get kittens who have never even seen a vet, but that doesn't always mean they have been healthy or taken care of properly, right?

And Teri helps educate the people waiting for kittens about hearts and eyes and everything that they need to know on how to take care of us, including all the vet records too, so their new vet can see any problems they have had as well as all the littermates info, too. Mewmie says honesty is the best policy and an educated client is the best kind!

Kiki's little Berries are doing great, eyes open, fat and sassy and almost 3 weeks old already. They have all been spoken for now, in fact two people are interested in adopting Bluberrie~~one family already has a Furrydance cat and the other family lost their elderly Cornish Rex a year ago and have been looking for just the right one ever since. Sometimes it's the early bird that gets the worm, so Bluberrie might go to live in North Carolina or New Jersey...someone will be happy and someone will have to wait for a kitten or maybe they might be interested in adopting Felicity or Sunny? That would make everyone happy, including Teri!

Here's the latest photos of the kittens and a little movie of Kiki's kids:

  6. Becky, I have a "cattery" website at http://furrydancecattery.com and you can learn more about these wonderful cats there, but I ask $1050 for my kittens, which I keep until they are 16 weeks old, are spayed/neutered and microchipped.

    Sometimes I have older kittens (I call them teenagers) or mature cats I get back from homes or mommycats I have spayed and retired, and then I ask less for them or nothing except for reimbursement for the up-to-date vet care they get before leaving home here, which can run from $100-$300.

    Glad you enjoy your visits here and I love visiting your blog, too!

    Mishkat, no surprise you think Bluberrie is a cutie...you are partial to blue, I can see :-)

  8. Oh, your kitties, your kitties! All your photos are so precious. They make me smile.

    Thank you so much for leaving such a warm and loving message on my blog. It gave me comfort and hope. I visited your memorial blog for your husband, and it made me weep. I can see how much you love him, and how wonderful a man he was. You are right, time is healing, and I am well on my way with the help of friends and family. Thank you again for your well wishes and kindness.

    xoxo
