I have an update! But first, a picture of the former foster back when she was a foster…
That’s right, it’s Khaleesi! Alton said:
I promised you a Khaleesi update a couple of weeks ago, but we moved between then and now, and I’m finally getting around to sending it. As I mentioned, she has stomatitis, and had some teeth extracted the week before she came to visit. It took he a couple of days for her to start feeling like herself.
Then she noticed that Lily was still here and she hissed at her. Which was followed by Khaleesi giving me the “I’d never hiss at anyone” look.
I did get one good photo of her grace curled up sleeping on top of the cat tree where Bubba usually sleeps.
Bubba was forced to hang out on the stairs.
Overall Khaleesi is doing well, and the vet was reasonably happy at her check up last week. If anyone has dealt with stomatitis and has advice, we’d welcome it.
And Lily would like you to know that while their efforts to get single payer healthcare for all Feline-Americans was not successful, she’s still a staunch supporter of the Occupy movement.
Thank you so much for the update, Alton! I was sorry to hear that Khaleesi’s dealing with stomatitis (though I don’t know much about it), but glad that she’s doing well. (Also, I probably always say this, but Bubba and Lily are SO GORGEOUS!!!)
If any of y’all have dealt with stomatitis in the past or currently, please share!
Phelps wonders why there’s no food in that bowl. (As an aside – I had to remove that bowl from the kitten room for now, because the little goobers kept running into it, face-first. I don’t want any cracked skulls and leaking marshmallow Fluff, so I put it away for now.)
Speaking of little Calabash, I weighed all the kittens yesterday and found that we’ve got TWO kittens who are already at or over 2 pounds. One Squash Bug, one Swimmer. Zuke is 2 pounds, 2 ounces, and Phelps is exactly 2 pounds. The lightest kittens are Torres and Louganis (1 pound, 9 ounces each), and Pattypan is one ounce heavier than those two. Ambercup is just under 2 pounds, and Spitz and Calabash are each 1 pound, 12 ounces.
The Squash Bugs will be 8 weeks old tomorrow, and the Swimmers turned 6 weeks old yesterday, can you believe it?
Videos! In the first, the kittens do some skitterbugging.
And in the second, we’ve got some Kitten Fight Club going on.
