Hey! Remember how, back in January, we got a pregnant calico kitty, and we named her Kokomo? This is what she looked like back then.
And she kept getting bigger, and I was all “Koko! Give us those babies!” and she was all “What babies?” and I was all “Koko, you goof. Give us the babies!”
And she said “No, seriously. WHAT babies?” So I took her to the vet, and the vet checked her over and was like “Well… I don’t know. I don’t feel anything, but… maybe?”
Then a few days later, Koko WENT INTO HEAT, and I was all “Oh, lord. Why?”, then I took her for an ultrasound to be super sure she wasn’t pregnant, and she wasn’t, and she said “Told you!”
Remember that? Well, we got an update on that sweet girl! She went off to Petsmart and was snatched up after only a few days. She went home with Rachael and joined a family that included a big brother Pong. They’re not BFFs, but they get along okay for the most part.
Rachael wrote up a WONDERFUL description of Koko, and sent lots of great pictures. I’m sharing a few of them below, but go on over to the Challenger’s House Facebook page to see more pictures, and read the full awesome description.
Now go on over to Facebook and check out the pictures and description of that sweet girl. She looks so happy!
(Thanks Rachael, for allowing us to share!)
So where did the new basket come from? the one in the image of Two-Bit.
That was on the Winnie’s Wish Insta-Auction, and I bid and won it. Andrea hand-made it, I believe!
From Michelle: Hi Robyn, a question for you and your readers: Both of my cats have had urinary issues (one had urinary crystals and the other had a bladder stone which required surgery) when they were fed Blue wet and dry food. They are now on prescription Royal Canin Urinary SO wet and dry food (and I put a little filtered water on top, and encourage them to drink the filtered water from their multiple bowls, etc. etc.). But the SO food is expensive, not popular with my one cat, and might not be effective (what it says on the bag of food!). I’m not sure if I should continue with the SO food and see if it works (it has been about 6 months) or if there are better alternatives. Does anyone have any experience with this?
Connie posted a link to her post about this very issue (thanks, Connie!) If anyone else would like to weigh in, please do!
The boys came through their neuter surgeries just fine. They were still sleepy and dopey when I got them home, and they spent the evening snoozing. Every now and then they’d wake up and stare in confusion at the new (to them) guys, who you’ll recognize…
They’ll be back here with us for about a week (they were having litter box issues which are easily fixed), and then will head on back to Petsmart.
They both seem a little puzzled – like they VAGUELY remember being here, but aren’t quite sure. As of bedtime last night, they were both hissing and growling at the Greasers (and Sodapop was growling back), but Hemlock seems interested in them, too. If you recall, Juniper was a hissy little thing when she was introduced to Privet and then to Hemlock, so I think in a few days, they’ll be playing like they were always BFFs. Or at least tolerating each other!
