Toby at the Vets Selfie

Hiya internet friends, I hads to go to vets and now I iz wearing the cone of shame...
I lives in a box and won't come out til I feel better and don't haz meddies.

I hurted my bottom on sumpun, Auntie Katie thinks was when I was jumpin into a window.
I am a furry big boy and I might have slipped while getting into the window above the sink. I don't know cause I cant remember. I just remember my owie hurts.

Auntie Katie saw my owie on Wednesday and tooks me to vets.

 Here I am complaining at the vets... Auntie Katie's camera took photo just as I was about to open my mouth and whine about being at the vets and waiting on Dr. Johnson to see us.
 I looks like a Vampire Cat.

Still waiting to see him....
I was a good boy though, just asked Auntie Katie, why Dr. Johnson taking sooo long?

The vet tech said that another pet was going over the Rainbow Bridge and they were consoling his family.  Okay... that makes sense. Auntie Katie and me were furry sad to hear that.

Da vets shaved my bottom and my legs so I could gets well - I was licking my owie and making it worse.  No we not gotted photos of da owie, but it am the size of a dime, and healing furry nicely now. Soon I won't has to wear a cone no mores.

Happy St. Patrick's Day Weekend....
Purrz from Toby and the Katie Katz.

Saturday Free Vet Clinic Day Selfies

Free Clinic Day Sponsored by 

Check In: Silvia with Mama Cat and Four kids
The all day SCART event took place on Saturday, March 11 at Wichita's Interfaith Ministries with a makeshift clinic set up in their basement.

SCART in cooperation with Inter-Faith Ministries hosted the bi-annual pet wellness clinic event, which also function as practice drills for animal response volunteers while offering free pet wellness exams, vaccinations and city license information for pets whose owners are experiencing or have recently experienced homelessness or poverty.  

Exams were provided by Skaer Veterinary Clinic and services were free of charge.  Information about no cost spay and neuter options was also available. The event was limited to dogs and cats. Proof of low income was required, by appointment only set up several months ago.

Cold day yesterday. Mostly dog owners came to event. The outdoor receiving and registration area was cordoned off to help keep loose doggies from running away.  All the tables were covered by canopies.

Silvia's four kids are seven years old. Mama Cat is about eight.

After filling out paperwork for each kitty, carriers were tagged to correspond with each kitty's paperwork. Then Silvia, a volunteer and I carried the carriers over to a covered semi-circle waiting area of chairs covered by a large canopy before going in the building.
The Cat exam room was actually the women's restroom.  

Natasha was first to be seen. She watched Mama Silvia a lot to know what to do. She was very good and wasn't scared. Every kitty had their teeth checked, bladder and abdomen checked, overall health. Then received distemper and rabies shots, and topicals for deworming and fleas. 

Guero, who had been having diarrhea problems this last week, was thankfully well enough now to get his vaccinations. Dr. Christen Skaer checked both Guero and Gordo's surgeries. Gordo PU surgery, only a few weeks ago, was healing well. (PU = perineal urethrostomy).

Sometimes Mama Narcisca gets a brown discharge. Silvia asked Dr. Skaer about that and she suggested that Mama be checked for crystal problems in her urine since two of her boys had to have PU surgery for crystal blockage. 
Two of the flea products they had on hand were Frontline or Cheristin. Had not heard of Cheristin before. (Cheristin FAQs) Cheristin is apparently safer for young cats and kittens. (FAQ page states, "Low-volume dose is effective for all cats 1.8 pounds or greater")

Vet Exam Kitty Selfies:


Mama Narcisca

After examinations, Kitties were checked out at the "Reclaim" Table. Silvia was told by Dr. Skaer and SCART that if any kitty seemed to be having a reaction, take to ER to be checked and treated and treatment would be paid for.  Every kitty received paperwork and a rabies tag in an envelope.
Review of the event: 
One little dog got loose and happily ran around excited. The volunteers were calm and easily helped the little dachshund return to his Mama.

Two of the topicals were placed too low below the cat's collars. When Silvia got her kitties home, they started trying to groom each other and began gagging and drooling. If the topicals had been put just above the collar line, would have been harder for the siblings to get it in their mouths during mutual grooming.

Natasha did not take to all the vaccinations and topicals as well as Mom and her littermates. She curled up in a ball and refused to eat. She also staggered to the litterbox. We took her to the ER for a checkup. At ER, Silvia was told that only the checkup would be covered and not any treatment if needed. After some discussion (heated), Natasha's treatment was also covered (Benedryl shot).

In Conclusion: Event went well and very organized. Plenty of volunteers who were professional and calm - very good with animals. However I will be contacting SCART to find out why ER said that treatment was not covered, only the exam if needed.

Caturday Art: This Little Kitty am Found Home

Sweet little skinny kitty was lead by her kitty angels to a friend's porch. She is under a year old, with unusual markings. Her wears a calico tabby tuxedo  (bib and white feet), a Manx Poly-dactyl girl, pregnant too ...

 I posted a really yucky night photo three days ago on Facebook, saying if she returns, will need a home asap. She showed up again Thursday to eat on friend's porch everyday, then yesterday morning, I coaxed her to let me pet her and hold her, took her into the bathroom where she gobbled down enough food for two kitties. 

After crying in the window and worrying about the other kitties in the home, she finally settled down on a towel in the bathtub and cried softly before closing her eyes to get some needed rest. 

An hour later, a very good rescue friend called me - she has a friend who has been looking for a Manx kitty for almost two years...

This afternoon she goes home to a real loving Daddy purr-son.  Thank you kitty angels for helping this baby find safety, love and home.  Home Sweet Home.
