Foster FailureWe've added a new member to our little family.
Meet Brindle (Brin for short) a little sickly pound kitty that we decided to foster after seeing how awful she looked stuck in the nasty cat room at the shelter. Joe absolutely lost it when he saw her, and there was no way we could leave her there.
We took her home, brought her to the vet, got her some meds, and she was good to go. She improved times ten just being out of the shelter for a few hours.
We fostered her for all of 36 hours before we went right back to the shelter and adopted her officially :) We are what they call Foster Failures.
She wasn't eating, was coughing and wheezing, and just not being her kitty self for about three days. We were shooting food into her mouth with a syringe just to get her to eat something. She had nasty snot in her nose, and a nosebleed from the horrible sinus infection. Plus, she just got fixed about a week ago, so she generally felt like crap.
I have been bringing her to work with me the past three days, just to keep an eye on her, and force feed her every hour or so. She's doing SO much better. She ate almost two spoonfuls of food this morning, which is a huge deal for her.
She's a blessing to our home, we love her already.
Fargo is taking to her as well. Sometimes he will grab her in his mouth and carry her around. She's not quite well enough for that kind of rough housing yet, but I know that they will be BFFs very soon.
I am known to have brutal cat allergies, and so far, so good. I think my shot therapy is coming in really handy. Say some prayers that my allergies stay at bay, and we can keep this little furball of happiness.
