Most of you know I have a big ol' soft spot for cats. Well, I was tickled to look at this picture of a padiddle kitty. Hee!

I've been meaning to post some photos of Dixie for some time now. Today, I finally uploaded the lot that I took from the camera to the computer and resized my favorites.

With no further ado: )

beautiful day )

Anyone who tries to tell me there's no such thing as global warming can smooch my cellulite and shovel the lake effect snow from my driveway in April.

I've been remiss. A week ago, on December 27, the family and I went down to the Wyoming County SPCA with two bags of cat litter to donate and brought home an adult cat to do our small part to ease their overpopulation of cats. They are a no-kill shelter, which means they don't get government funding. Their catsplosion may shut them down. If you have the room in your heart and home for an adult cat, their adoption fee is waived until January 7. If you have extra blankets, laundry detergent, purina food, or clay or scoopable litter, they welcome donations. I would recommend taking a visit down there, whether you have a little extra you could give or you want a cat. At any given time, I was surrounded by 10-20 cats. There are cats on shelves. There are cats in corners. There are cats in cages. The bulk of the cats are loose in the cat room. There are rows of giant food dishes, water dishes, and litter boxes. Amazingly enough, the smell is minimal for that many animals. We brought a laser pointer and had a load of fun watching a crowd of cats chasing after the evil red dot. [livejournal.com profile] mechanchaos brought the camera. Hopefully he'll put the pictures up on his flickr account one of these days.

Our new arrival's name is Dixie. She is a grey and white longhair cat who had lived at the shelter for most of her 3 1/2 years. The past couple days she has been allowed to interact with the other cats unsupervised. She purrs loudly when I pet her, and she loves playing with just about every cat toy I have introduced. So far the others have been a bit uncertain of her, just as she is uncertain of them. However, the evil red dot brings out the boldness in all of them.

So far, I don't have the results from Leo. Bloodwork went out, and they're developing the xrays. Things are bittersweet. It's nice that Dixie is in the house, and that Leo's problem isn't bladder-related, but I'm worried about what Leo's issues might be.

Please keep Leo in your thoughts today. It's not his bladder this time. It might be that he has a tummy bug. It might be that his pancreas is inflamed. Then again, it might be that he swallowed something he oughtn't have swallowed and that they have to go in and take out. We'll know more later.

Long, flowing skirts make great hideouts for cats.

That is all.

Because I've got Leo on my mind today, I thought I'd put a new link to these posts. One can never have enough kitty pics, right?

Edit: And in case you needed more photos, here's another old post. I'm not quite sure what happened to how I posted originally, but the pics are still there.

Well, the symptoms were the same, and I guess I was hitting the wrong spot to find the bladder. Leo's got the same thing as last year. They "booked" him. He's going to be catheterized and tested later today and he'll likely be there three days. Lots of no-Leo time. :( The poor little guy. At least I didn't have to take him to the emergency clinic. He'll be under the same care the whole time. Still, I'm worried about him.

Leo's having issues. We have a 9:40 am vet appointment. He woke me up at 4:40 with howling reminiscent of last year's stuff, but his bladder feels normal. I think it might be intestinal. :(

Well, Leo's antibiotics ran out a couple days ago. He hasn't had any issues since the vet changed his meds. His bladder is still small and squishy, not attempting to resemble a tennis ball. We'll be keeping him on the special diet for a while. His checkup is at the end of the month.

For the record, let me say that it is not cool when for several days now the thermometer in my living room is stuck as high as it can go (90) even through the middle of the night. I'm soooo thankful I have an AC room to sleep and read in. I just wish the computer was in there too.
