Update on Georgie and Auction for her Vet Bills

Vintage potholder from auction

Georgie is still at the vet's and may be home today. She is improving slowly.  I have been working so Don has been running over there to see her and help feed her. She is now eating on her own and things look good.  She was a VERY sick girl.  With her diabetes we have decided to move her inside the house since she was living in the cat shelter with Snowball and the others.

Our bills are mounting incredibly fast for her and I have a couple of other sick kitties at home.  Rosa has a UTI and Ivy still needs fluids and special  for her CRF.  Please consider shopping with us at her auction this coming week. - we have lots to offer.

At auction - new handmade pottery ornament

The auction is running thru Dec 7, 2014 to give everyone time for holiday shopping.  New, vintage, gently used and handmade items are listed.  Please stop by our auction ( Wildcat Woods Vintage Treasures) often as I will be adding things daily. Share  if you can't bid.  I can use any and all help with this!  

Thanks so much.

Purrs and Prayers for Georgie

11:20am Mon UPDATE - Our Georgie has diabetic ketoacidosis and will be getting IV fluids for 3 days at the vet and then they will regulate her insulin!  Didn't see any symptoms of this other than drinking a little more.  Our finances are a bit stretched due to Ivy's constant need to go to the vet so we will be having an auction this weekend - on Facebook and another on my blog.  Will keep you updated.  Thanks for caring!

Our sweet Georgie is not feeling well today. Mom noticed she  had lost a little weight and was being a finicky eater.  Changing foods and more attention seemed to help but this morning she did not want to eat anything.  She is also sitting by the water bowl a lot.  Those are the only symptoms - weight loss, lack of appetite and drinking more - all signs of Chronic Renal Disease.  She is only 8.  Mom gave her a couple of homeopathic remedies and she seemed to perk up a bit.

One of our vets opens at 3pm on Sunday so we will see how she is doing.  If things don't look any better, Mom will bring her in today rather than wait until Monday.  Please keep her in your thoughts and send lots of purrs!

Thank You To Donna!

Baby Doll

For our Thankful Thursday post this week we want to give a shout out to Mom's friend Donna who adopted the feral cat Panther from SC and also took in Marg's Baby Doll.  Mom got to visit her recently and saw how well both cats are doing in their new home!

If you don't recall the details about the sleek black cat Panther - he was almost put down twice at a shelter in SC and then they scanned him for a microchip.  A call was made to the woman who had placed him and his journey began.  Our pal Brian from Brian's Home took up the quest and one thing lead to another and Donna wanted Panther.  His story is here.

Panther's turn to get some love.

It took months but Panther has blossomed.  He is still a bit shy at first with newcomers but will come out for Mom Donna to be loved up and petted.  He has the run of the house now and his best pal is Baby Doll!  Mom even got to pet Panther for a tiny bit.  It is amazing how well he has adjusted to his forever home.  Mom Donna says he looks at her with such love in his eyes that she just melts.  He is her loverboy. We know he is soo very grateful for her and his new family.

Baby Doll was being fostered at Marg's of Marg's Animals but she did not get along with other cats so had to have her own room.  Donna saw the post about Baby Doll on Facebook and said she would take her.  Baby Doll adjusted pretty quickly to her new home.  She prefers to stay on the upper level and still gets put out when the other cats invade her rooms.  She does, surprisingly, let Panther hang out with her. They both eat in the same room.

Baby Doll has her Mom time when Donna puts her make-up on in the bathroom  Baby Doll sits on the counter and lets Donna smush her face, talk to her  and love her to bits.  Funny how they all have their quirks.

Senior kitty Simmee

Donna has a magical way about her with problem cats.  They blossom under her care and love.  She has a big generous heart too. She also took in three senior kitties - Simmee, Grayson and Annie -  that were left at home when their owner went into a nursing home.  They had been living in the basement of his house.  Again, it took patience and lots of effort but they now are part of the household and interact with the other cats and people.

Donna also cares for a colony of feral cats that live in the fields behind her house.  Thank you Donna for all you do for your cats  and critters everywhere.  The world is a better place  with you in it!
