Belated Gotcha Day for Mamacita and Rosa


Oops, Mom forgot our Gotcha Day yesterday!  Oh well.  It was a hard day anyway since it was two months since Ivy went to the Bridge. We can forgive Mom that slip.  We know she will make up for it with lots of love and treats today.

Rosa

 It has been a whole ten years since Mom rescued us from her yard when I was about six months and Rosa was  a tiny kitten with her brother Angel Manny.  Both kittens had URIs and were very sick so Mom trapped all three of us at once.  She inadvertently caught Ivy a few weeks before that  but decided to keep her inside too.


Mamacita
 We are very shy kitties but have come a long way.  I will sit on the sofa next to Mom or Pop and let them love me up...but don't try to pick me up or put both hands on me at once..I will run away so fast!  Rosa loves to be petted but she won't sit next to them like I do. She gets overstimulated quickly and ends up whapping me or anyone else around and then running of!

Mamacita and Mr Kitty
I have kind of taking a liking to Mr. Kitty -  he is a plus sized cat like I am and very handsome.  He likes to sit next to Pop too so we both get lots of loving and enjoy that time together.  Thanks in advance for all our good wishes .  We look forward to many more Gotcha Days!

Mom Cheri here with updates on the cats - Minnie is holding her own but continues to fight us when we give sub c fluids.  We ordered a harness to hold the needle in place and give fluids while she walks around - will let you know how that works.  She also is not eating consistently - never mind the rx food!  I have found a liquid supplement for picky senior kitties that she likes and also a gel with high calories.  These both seem to help her  hold her weight.

Al's eye is not better altho it does not seem to bother him.  His third eyelid shows.  It does seem to be neurological and time will tell if it gets better.  Mr Kitty is getting used to his thyroid meds (herbs) twice daily.  Georgie is off her food again so I am making sure she eats by giving her food when the others are not around so I know she eats it.

The weather is not helping my mood these days - altho we need the rain, it has been damp, foggy and rainy for five days now with the rest of the week the same.  Thanks for thinking of us and  for the good wishes Mamacita and Rosa.

Oh my! So much goings on, but first off...Happy Gotcha Day to Mamacita and Rosa! Have you talked with your vet about installing a feeding tube for Minnie? It goes directly into the stomach...I've seen it online. That way, she will get food whether she eats or not! Purrs for Al and Mr. Kitty too!

Eastside Cats said...

Got your message about the feeding tube...of course you knew more about it than I! Sorry bout that. Have you tried nutritional yeast to encourage kitties to eat?

We are purring and praying for Minnie, Al, Mr. Kitty and Georgie, and all of you. Good health and all good thoughts to you, dear friends.

Mamacita, we had a formerly feral kitty who lived to be 19 years and only finally sat on my lap once at age 12, then decided it was too much, but she would curl up under any chair I sat in and slept on my other pillow after we all went to bed and the lights were out. And that trick with the second hand is such a memory! One hand was fine, but if the second hand even moved toward her, her leg muscles were underdeveloped, a birth issue, she couldn't run, but she did. Happy Homecoming Day to you and Rosa.

Summer said...

Happy gotcha day, girls! I can see why your human forgot - she must be really distracted with so many kitties who aren't feeling well. I'm sending purrs to them all.

Maxwell Faraday Richman said...

Thinking of Georgie and Al - and wow, Minnie, a harness that'll hold the IV in? Brilliant! Way cool about the gel too - didn't know about that stuff.

The Cat Guy said...

yahh!! ten wonderful years with those two gorgeous kitties! I love black cats and Mamacita and Rosa are especially delightful knowing they were rescued from outside lifestyle. I dream of bringing my outside black kitties inside, but with the urine marking, that might not go over so well.

Fur Everywhere said...

Happy Gotcha Day, pretty kitties!!

Please let us know how the harness works for Minnie. We found that NutriCal helped Jewel maintain her weight when she wasn't interested in eating much. :)

We will continue to purr and pray for all of you <3

The Swiss Cats said...

Alasandra, The Cats and Dogs said...

Happy Gotcha Day Mamacita and Rosa, boy were you lucky to find your family, they are terrific.

Healing purrs for those who need them.

(Sigh) We understand about the weather giving you the blahs, there is a tropical depression over us so everything is gray and gloomy.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Happy Gotcha Day to Rosa and Mamacita. Maybe you'll get extra treats tomorrow.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
