First, my grandmother went to the doctor Tuesday and he said she was healing nicely! She isn't going to need surgery! Thank God!! She is still sore and having trouble adjusting to doing some things. She goes back to the doctor in 2 weeks to see if she can take the sling off.
Second, our kitten, Stormy is hanging on! On Monday, 5 days after her last attack, she began flopping around on the floor like a fish out of water. Then on Tuesday she began trying to walk. She couldn't' quite figure out how to get her front paws going so she kinda slid around. Wednesday, she began to walk and going outside, supervised. She walks like she is drunk, but at least, she is walking!! I am still having to feed her with a medicine dropper and she is not able to use the litter box, so a lot of extra laundry! I believe she is going to be blind out of her right eye, but otherwise, I think she will recover.
Third, our other kitten, Raven, brought home another kitten tonight. We have several alley cats that roam the neighborhood. This kitten has 3 other siblings. One of the others has a growth around its eye. Ryan tried to grab it, but it hissed at him. It looks like an infection took over and has formed a mass on its eye. We are going to work on catching it to drop it off at a no kill shelter to get some attention. Jaiden wants to keep the other kitten that followed Raven home. It is a he, and he doesn't seem to be too feral yet. Public service announcement: "Please have your cats fixed if you do not plan on breeding them!" It is so sad to see all of these homeless pets wondering our alley!!
Fourth, next week Daisy is going to go to the great "farm" in the sky. She has even started getting aggressive towards Ryan. He was trying to get some loose fur off her hind and Daisy snapped at him. I think that helped Ryan make the decision. I really hate to put a healthy animal down, but this aggressiveness is unacceptable! I told Jaiden that we were going to take her to a farm where she could run and not have to worry about her hurting any more kittens. Jaiden is okay with this because she and Daisy aren't that close. I always try to tell the girls the truth, but in this case, I think "really stretching the truth" is the way to go.
Thanks to everyone that has left comments, emails, and have been sending thoughts and prayers this way! They all are appreciated!
