Muffin ~ the healthiest of the bunch
Wally~still not feeling up to snuff
Erma~finally eating again & feeling a little better
Oh the joys of fostering!
I'm behind on painting, blogging, housework & pretty much everything else since my 4-legged furballs moved in! This past week has been a roller coaster ride with my 4 foster babies. When one gets better, another gets worse, when one starts eating again, another stops & so on & so on. I've been running back & forth to the shelter clinic with 1, 2 or 3 kitties for sub-q fluids, sitting in steamy bathrooms with them, syringe feeding when they won't eat & giving meds & nosedrops. This is the first time I've had really sick babies & it is NO fun at all! I feel so bad for them. It's just so hard to see them stuffed up & feeling so miserable. I'm used to romping & playing & snarfing food & kitty scratches. Now I'm thrilled just to see them eating!
Muffin, the long-legged gray girl is my only healthy one. She's still sneezing a little but other than that she eats like a pig & plays nonstop! She's really been enjoying trying out all the different foods I've been offering the other 3 trying to get them to eat. She's getting the "Kitty Buffet" 3 times a day - ha!
Hopefully my 3 sickos will be on the rebound soon. It's been a week & a half & I think they've gone through the worst of it. Next time around if I'm bringing home sick kitties I think I'll just take 2. Having 4 sick ones at a time is almost more than I can handle. They are such sweethearts though! Even after I've stuck 3 syringes in their mouth they come right over & curl up on my lap!
I'm still working on my commissioned painting (between kitten care shifts) & then I can't wait to get started on some Fall & Halloween creations! My FAVORITE time of year is almost here!
