Recap: Thursday, August 27, 2015


  • Lneya spent some time on cam in the morning socializing Rose’s kittens Violet, Sage, Anthos, and Thorny
  • Kayla gave Rose’s kittens their first deworming (and more kitten gruel aka KMR + Royal Canin Babycat wet food) at her 6PM snuggle visit (Thorny demonstrated what happens when someone sneezes behind you, Anthos ate like a champ from the syringe)

  • Sarin is officially up for adoption. If no applications come in for her before Saturday, she’ll be at the LAPS Satellite Adoption Centre in Abbotsford on Saturday.

TinyKittens HQ:

  • Shelly’s morning visit (including Tigress scaling the Sky Bridge)
  • General scampiness and many assaults on the Sky Bridge (Skipper LittleGoat pulled down Chickenfish early in the morning, which made that first step onto the bridge easier later on)

  • Thumper, Flower, and Bluebelle are still getting meds and Flower is still getting fluids; Flower still has pus.
  • Shelly is busy painting and preparing the house for the flooring installers on Saturday. She thinks she’ll relocate Tip and the kittens across the road on Friday until the flooring is done.
  • She may introduce wet food (aka kitten gruel) on Friday, depending on the kitten teeth situation (some have teeth starting to come in, others not so much)
  • Shelly’s afternoon visit — bringing in the three kittens from Sisko’s room for socialization and weighing.
  • Shelly’s late evening visit (the cam reset in the middle of the visit): Owl’s socialization is going well; Mr. T has ringworm (see below); Tip had a “spay me now” photoshoot; Shelly talked more about the new flooring (will start early Saturday a.m. and hopefully only take a day; Tip and kittens will relocate across the road to Shelly’s for a night or two; Shelly’s thinking about closing Sisko up with her kittens in the Cabinet of Solitude and then quickly relocating the whole thing upstairs into a room that isn’t having the flooring replaced so that (a) her room can be refloored and (b) her stress is minimized)

People for Happier Cats/TNR site:

  • Torelius’s PCR results came in and he’s got microsporum ringworm. So plans to bring him are on extended hold — it wouldn’t be fair to bring him in just to put him in isolation and do many weeks of treatments and there’s a limit to what treatment they can do in the field (they might be able to give medication once a day, but obviously not clean the environment or bathe him). Ringworm self-cures in two to four months so they will let him recover on his own and then take a look at the situation then. (They’ve know that ringworm was in the other side of the colony site, where the new feeding station is, but until Henley tested positive, they hadn’t seen evidence of it at the original feeding station.) To quote Shelly; “Our amazing plans for world domination keep getting thwarted by ringworm.” The presence of ringworm at that feeding station means they can still TNR (vet willing), but no fostering at the moment. (This highlights the need for the Isoasis.)
