Catch -up


Yoko snoopervising Lily's kennel cage. (And bored)

Been a very long and busy week for us here. The beans had company in town for the week, plans to visit other people out of town,  Yoko's UTI and vet visit, an unauthorized charge on the debit card (meaning we had to cut up the old card, order a new one and wait for 10 days using only cash or checks) and then a bully in the cat house.

Yoko is doing better with a new vet.  He still thinks it is a UTI but we will bring another urine sample in this week to see if all the new remedies have made a difference.  If not then perhaps and x-ray or another type of antibiotic.

Lily, the mom cat of all the white ones has been being bullied by Norm of all cats.  He was one that was picked on by Al before we made Al his own room.  A very bitter attack had Norm and Lily falling off the wall shelf onto the counter and then floor.  Luckily no one was hurt but poor Lily was terrified. 

We gave it another day but things did not improve so we brought her inside since we were down two cats (Joey and Chica)  She has been in a large dog kennel for a few days but is doing very well when we let her roam the house.  So far no one has done more than a hiss or swat.  Her two "kids" are Tabitha and Woody but they do not recognize each other. It has been too long.

Lily - the new member of the house.

In the cat house all is quiet now - don't know what brought this on from Norm but he has tried to assert himself with Snowball who just smacks him or pays no attention.  Anything could have caused this.  Seeing another cat outside (like our neighbor Jack) for instance could set Norm off. Lily seems to feel OK - sometimes a sick cat will be picked on by others.

Yoko on the kennel cage - sorry Lily is blurry

We may take in another of the white cats if anyone seems overly upset that Lily is gone.  Only and Smidge were closest to her but Only seems to have taken up with Georgie (poor girl).  Smidge is on her own and may be the one to come inside next.  Let's hope we have a quieter week this week.  What have you been up to?

Paws crossed that Lily continues to make a smooth transition inside. Please keep us posted about Yoko - we want to know she is doing all right.

Sure glad that Yoko is doing much better. Glad to hear you have been having some fun with guests and trips. Take care.

Okay, that's FAR too much going on.

Has the vet run a culture and sensitivity test on a urine sample? It's the only way to positively determine if there is bacteria in the urine and what type of antibiotics are best. Everything else is gue$$ work, IMO.

Poor Lily! Hope she adjusts okay and that things remain calm in the cat house.

Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Poor Lily! We wonder what could have made Norm go after her like that?

In any case, we hope it all works out. And know that we are purring and praying for Miss Yoko.

You have had a busy week for sure. Hope all is going slower and smoother now for you. Glad to hear sweet Yoko is a little better. Hugs and nose kisses

Glad calm has been restored! Hopefully Lily has a smooth transition to the house :-)

Sounds like you have been one busy household! Hopefully everyone gets feeling better. It's not fun when our four legged friends are not doing well.
Big hugs and kisses on the nose for everyone!

Man, those white cats take it on the chin. Our foster, Harvey, has had a tough life so far but Mum and us are hoping that like Lily, he HAS found the right home.

Timmy Tomcat said...

My meowness you have a lot going on. I have to step up to keep the peace here sometimes but it sounds like nothing compared to your wild cats.
Purrs that all settles down in the next week
Your pal

Never a dull moment at your house, is there! The unauthorized debit card problem sounds scary. Hope all is straightened out.

Katz Tales said...

Sounds like the cats are struggling for power; hope it's a skirmish and not a war. That credit thing sounds scary!

Kjelle Bus said...

I hope that Yoko feels better soon and that everything will be OK with Lily inside the house.
XOXO
