HELEN KELLER KITTEN

HELEN KELLER KITTEN


1. The kitten was doing so well with the eye medication the vet prescribed for her, but her little eye started swelling again about a week ago.


This pic was taken when Grandpa and I started
giving her the medication a while back.



After the medication, she looked so well, but now
her eye looks like the picture above again!</center>

By and by, I want to thank all of you who suggested a name for her in one of my prior posts. You all came up with really wonderful names, but the one I liked most was HELEN KELLER. I felt the name was most appropriate since she’s blind. Thank you
[info]purplevenus!

I took her to the vet again yesterday and he prescribed eye drops that are suppose to be applied 4 times a day for 8 days so the eye hopefully dries up completely. I’m to take her back to him in 8 days and if the drops don’t work, her little eye will double in size in time and explode. I’ll keep my fingers crossed in hopes the drops work by that time, if not, then I’ll take her for the operation, and will do whatever it takes to save her life. It’s amazing how much I’ve grown to love her since she was born 4 months ago. She’s still tiny and hasn’t grown at all. Helen loves to eat, and I’m amazed at how she follows me everywhere I go throughout the house. Does she smell me or what? :o)

2. I have more bad news. I was unable to trap the remaining female cat to have spayed, and now she’s pregnant again. TRUST ME! It’s IMPOSSIBLE trying to catch one cat among 20 something cats that have already been spayed and neutered!! If this cat has more kittens, I’ll have close to 30 cats! I have so many, I’ve totally lost count! I told my vet about it, and he told me to try and catch her again, and if I do, to call him any day of the week, any time of the day, and take her to him so he can spay her.

I buy a 40 # bag of Meow Cat food per week. They’re fed in the morning and in the evening, because I want their bellies full so they’ll leave the birds alone. Friends and family think I’m nuts, but they just don’t understand that I’ve grown to love each and every one of them, and there’s no way in hell I can just pretend they don’t exist by letting them starve to death.

I’m trapped and it doesn't feel too good. Perhaps I am crazy for loving animals so much!

BloodHounds are not the only animal with excellent sense of smells. Most all mammels have a heightened sence of smell, but where one of the senses is taken away the others are heightened.

Years ago when the Cattle Drives were common place, A major problem was when cows gave borth on the trail but were too weak to continue and died. The calk would loose the scent of its mother and wander off, The drovers found out that if they Covered the calf's eyes and blew into its nose 3 or 4 times the calf would pick up the scent of the driver and think it was its mother, and follow him.

I did the same thing when I got a new puppy for years.

Apparently Hellen has your scent and knows you are her Mommy...

So ends the trivia lesson for today :-)

I always learn so much from you! I guess since Helen is blind, she smelled me while placing the medication on her eyes, either that, or I smell like a piece of fried chicken to her! :o)
