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!

We had a kitten dropped off here by someone (we live near a highway) and we followed your fine example and took her in. Her name is Nicka because she was saved in the nick a time. LOL

What a lucky little kitten to be dropped off at your door step! Only you could come up with such a clever, and most befitting name!

I love you my dearest inspectorjury!!

Darn now I have to confess that Alexis came up with the name. But, she's my daughter so It's almost the same as if I had thought of it. LOL
