The injuries were very terrible.

1. Kitten Before She Was Attacked
2. 1st Time I Noticed Something Wrong With Kitten
3. Missing Kitten Found

I was at the vet's office with the kitten from 8:30 am to 11:30 am.

I'm such a dummy! I thought Davida was a little girl kitten. No! Davida is a little boy! So, I have changed the name to Davy!

His little paw will most likely have to be amputated. Surgery is scheduled on the 18 of this month.

This is what was done this morning:

Examination $33.00
Leukemia/FIV test $37.80
X-Ray Small $40.05
Ear Swab, per ear $9.25
Acarexx (0.01%Ivermectin) Otic $18.02
Penicillin Injection $21.20
Fluids Subcutaneous $15.00
Clavamox Drops $16.10
Bandage Application (feline)$24.75
Rcp (1st) $17.00
Rabies $20.00
Total $252.17
Discount $11.50

PLUS: The operation on the 18th will cost me approximately $600.00 - Yikes!!!

I've been told by my friends that I should have had him put to sleep. There's no way in hell I could have done that.

Jewely and Mickey are so precious! They are both behaving beautifully and are constantly giving little Davy a bunch of sloppy kisses. I'm so proud of them!

I am blessed in many ways. My boss is an animal lover, too. He gave me the whole day off to attend to this kitten. Bless him!

My neighbor is giving me very nasty looks. I'm returning them back even nastier. She better not mess with me, the MUCKING *B**CH!

This is part of my 10 ft. high rod iron fence. The woman's Chihuahua's are so small that they can enter my yard. The chicken wire will be placed all around my fence so those vicious little monsters will never enter my yard again. As long as my cats stay in my yard, they will be totally safe from attacks.

Just as soon as Davy gets his operation and heals, I will get the other stray kittens shots and bring him/her inside to live with us, too. This kitten is too sweet and trusting and I'm afraid something will happen to it. Hopefully, I take her to the vet next month. One things for sure, Grandpa and I will be eating homemade pizza, spaghetti and beans for an awful long time! We won't mind at all!

Somehow I think home-made pizza every day sounds exciting and delicious.

And rice and beans is awesome. I love rice and beans.

Pizza is one of my favorite things to eat. I made this pizza today and Grandpa and I will be eating some for supper!

It truly is a poor mans meal. I make it for only pennies. I make the dough and pizza sauce on Saturdays and freeze them into 3 balls. The toppings are bought at Sams. Mozzarella Cheese, Mushrooms, Green and Red Peppers, Pepperoni, Italian Sausage, Jalapenos and sometimes Pineapple. I sauté the veggies then sprinkle them on top of pizza. Left over Pizza is refrigerated and eaten for the next 3 days. Delicious!

I love mexican rice and beans, too!!
Hugs my friend!

I am very sorry to hear about all of this.

I am also glad to see you be productiveand responsible on your end, since the neighbor doesn't seem to have enough of a conscience to try and compromise both your living spaces and those living in them, or even much less to not fucking maddog you after the incident. Talk about adding insult to injury.

Hopefully your minor adjustments are all that will be needed. It would be outragious to have to resort to video surveillance.

You BE COOL, calm and clear headed - you can let that shitbag have the bad karma.

Peace and good health be with you and your little ones.

Tomorrow the chicken wire goes up all around the fence. It will be about 2 1/2 ft. high. I'm sure this will solve my problem. In the meantime, I'll have my dog Cujo tied up right next to the B*'s house. Cujo looks just like the Stephen King's Cujo movie.

I took a pic of Jeweley sleeping right next to the kitten. Be still my heart! I'll post it soon.

Thank you Cris. My little ones are all happy, safe and peaceful for now.

Putting an animal down is easier said than done, especially once you've held them. I hope the operation goes as well as possible!
Oct. 12th, 2005 02:24 pm (UTC)
I do too. The little bones are shattered in many pieces and his whole little leg was infected badly. His temperature was very high, too.

I had a choice of just having his little paw amputated 'cause it would have saved me about $300.00. I told the vet I couldn't have that and to go for the major operation to try and save it. The operation won't guarantee that the paw will be saved, but we at least will try.
Thank you my friend and big hugs!

Yes, he is pretty lucky, considering his injuries.
He has adapted wonderfully to being an indoor kitten.

I'll show you some pics I took today and yesterday of
Davy sleeping peacefully with Mickey and Jewely. Be
prepared to get a big smile on your face when you see

Hug Huggy Bear!

Re: Mk999 here -
Have you ever tried pizza with pineapple chunks? OMG! It is so different and delicious. Gotta love it!

All my babies have their little belly's full and are sleeping peacefully. Davy and Mickey are sleeping right now, together.
I'll be adding the pics I took of them very soon.

Blessings Be my friend!
Hugs and big kisses from me and the kids!

Oh my god. I just went back to read what happened. Poor Davy!

Stupid chihuahuas.

Sorry, I wasn't logged in and my message came out as anonymous!
Yes, Davy was viciously attacked. Poor baby.
In a way, it may have been a blessing for him
because now, he's an indoor cat and enjoying
every minute of it. I'm seeing a great big
smile on his little face right now, as he sleeps
right next to Mickey. I'll put up the pics very

Thank you my friend and big hugs!

Free cats...
...Are always the most expensive.

My little Ashcroft, a cat that when found as a kitten with his brother in the alley behind my old apartment wasn’t slated to live past a month do to the injuries sustained prior to finding him has grown up to be the wobbly leader of the pride. Well worth the small fortune it cost to keep him going during the touch and go times.

So while it might be a little rough in the pocket for the next few months, the love you will get in return from Davy and his littermate will equal a fortune in the years to come.

Of course you know that now don’tcha:-)

I got to say, that’s not only one cute kitten, but also one heck of a happy looking one in spite of the trauma it’s suffered. You are an awesome pet parent.

P.S. Kudos on finding the fourth little gumball machine...

Re: Free cats...
I'm becoming more and more immature as the years go by. I've got gumball machines and animals on my mind. Poor Grandpa, he's become just as immature as I am.

OMG! Your cats are so beautiful. Thank God Ashcroft encountered his Guardian Angel (You) All your cats look so sassy and spoiled, but that's what they are for, to spoil rotten, huh!!??

Davy seems to have forgotten all the pain he went through recently. He has taken over one of Mickey and Jeweley's little dog beds. But Mickey and Jewely have improvised by getting in there, too. How strange to see little dogs cuddled up to a kitten.

Yes, money is worthless, unless you use it on little creatures that need your help so much. I just went and bought my winter coat at the 2nd hand store, it cost me $3.99!! I'll be spending over $1,000.00 on a kitten. It's okay, coats can be replaced, but the love of an animal can't!

Love you my friend. Thank God for people like you!

I recently noticed that you had added me, and thought to look over your journal. It's great to see that you are a big time animal lover as well.

It wasn't so great to see that you recently went thru something that happened to me as well. A dew weeks back our black female kitten was attacked by something when she'd snuck out of the house. She managed to make her way back into our garage. but the base of her tail was badly damaged as well as her right hind leg.

Thank goodness my son's GF works for a vet!! Even with the major discount she received, the bill looks to be roughly $1,000. She looks very odd now, because the vet had to amputate her tail. If there's an upside, I can now tell her apart from our black male kitten.

She's to have her stitches out any day now, but she has been just so affectionate since her return home.
Oct. 12th, 2005 01:57 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much my friend for adding me, too!

Sometimes it can be so painful loving animals as we do, huh?
It affects my life in a terrible way, knowing that little
animals are homeless and suffering so. Sometimes, it's just
to hard to bear.

I'm so sorry about your little kitten and I'm so happy she
was found before it was too late. I have had 2 black cats
in my life, too. They were totally wild cats and would
always explore the neighborhood. One day, they never
came back. That's when I swore that I would never permit
myself to love a cat again.

Now I have 7 cats to worry about. I have 10 stray dogs in the back
yard, 2 of them are indoor poodles and are the love of my life.

I've also noticed Davy become very affectionate, just like your
kitten. She looks at me with so much love in her eyes, that
all the expense and time I've recently spent on him has made
it all worth it!

Hugs my LJ friend!

His little paw
Poor lil kitten.
Oct. 12th, 2005 01:45 pm (UTC)
Re: His little paw
I know. Hopefully the vet will be able to save his little paw.
It will take a miracle.
Thank you my friend and big hugs to you!

I'm so sorry for the little kitten... Truly. I'm so glad that they have you to look after them...

Huge hugs and love always,

Oct. 12th, 2005 02:00 pm (UTC)
Thank you Mickey! I know you love animals just as much as I do and I'm also happy to know that your kitty is loved and cared for so much.

Hugs and love my friend!

Davy is getting better and better as the days
go by. The antibiotics have brought down the
terrible swelling and his temperature.

Hopefully, he won't get his little paw
amputated on the 18th when I take him for
his operation.
Hugs my friend!

Oct. 14th, 2005 11:00 pm (UTC)
Thank you! The kitten is doing great. He becomes more and more spoiled as the days go by. Everytime he sees me, he rolls on his back in a sassy way and I go rub his stomach.

He's still in danger until he gets his operation. Pray that they won't have to amputate his little paw!

I hadn't seen you for too long. I've missed you!
