I LOVE the photos of George and Precious...THANK YOU for sharing...

Now...about that poor kitty...Kim had a great idea about contacting your vet and seeing if they can recommend a rescue or shelter or a staff member that can help this kitty out...

Try calling them...if you have the information and know that someone can help in advance half the battle is won...then all that would be involved would be getting the kitty to your house to be safe until they could come and pick it up...

Sounds like a good plan to me...

I am thrilled that George is doing so well...you are such a good Momma...

How about this kitty for your brother? Of course, how could you get it there...Judy

UNFORTUNATELY I SAW THE KITTY AGAIN YESTERDAY AFTER 7:30PM UN MY WAY 2 THE BUS STOP. I WAS HOPEING THE KITTY FINNALY FOUND A HOME. AGAIN 2DAY AROUND 2PM A SAW THE KITTY OCUPYED WITH TWO WORKING CLASS GUYS. I WISH I HAD MY CAM TO PHOTO THE KITTY TO PRINT AN POST PHOTOS AROUND THE ERIA BUT IT WAS NOT A GOOD IDEA TO BRING THE CAM OUT IN THE RAIN. I WILL HAVE TO TRY ON A CLEAR DAY. I WILL UPDATE AGAIN SOON ON THE KITTY. GEORGE IS DOING FINE AND MISS THE PRESENCE OF THE PUPPY. HE HAD SO MUTCH FUN ON VALENTINES DAY.....five.gif

Please see if you can find out whether there are any no-kill rescue groups in your area. Either call the vet office and ask them or do an Internet search. This kitty needs to get off the street before she gets killed by a car, or gets pregnant (if it's an unspayed female), or ends up in the wrong hands. I worry the most about the friendly cats who WILL go to just anyone..........

Sorry if I sound frustrated but I get way too many emails from people who are "concerned" about a stray in their neighborhood but then don't actually follow through to DO anything about it. If you can get this cat to a safe situation where she'll get vetted and have a chance at adoption that would be great.

Where are you located? I'll do a search for you for a no kill shelter in the area or fosters etc that might be able to help you with this kitty.

Erika, I don't usually suggest that people call Animal Control, but this might be a case where you have to. They're the only ones with the power to issue a citation if the owner isn't providing adequate care for the puppy. Plus they can do followup visits to check on the puppy's welfare.

GEORGE IS DOIN GREAT! THE PUPY NAMED RUBY I WAS WATCHING FOR MY FREND WHO WAS IN THE HOSPIS WAS SENT TO ANOUTHER HOME YESTERDAY. MY FREND IS GOING IN FOR A LONGER STAY IN REHAB AND I NO LONGER CAN PROVIDE TO CARE FOR HER PUPY ANYLONGER. YESTERDAY THE PUPY INCURED A SINIFICANT AMOUNT OF DAMAGE TO MY BALCONY SCREEN. HOW CAN A SWEET LITTLE POOCH LIKE RUBY DO SO MUTCH DAMAGE. SHE IS IN NEED OF SOMEONE WHO CAN BE HOME OFFTEN TO WATCH HER. I HAVE MORE PICS FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY.

Hi

Send me your pharmacy information and I will pay for his prescription over the phone. I have a target card if that makes any difference...they should do it but ask first.

Send the information to:

loveferals@yahoo.com

Put IMOM in the title so I don't miss it. ..or just send me a pm

HI Ericka,

I got both your messages. I got home late last night. Some out of towners moved into the dinky apartment on the alley where some of my cats eat and immediately started trouble. Wait until they what kind of neighborhood they moved into...night falls and the drug deals, etc start...I hope they move out soon. Anyway, trying to get the kitties fed with a minimum of problems.

Got home and another crisis with a friend's cat.

I am happy you got it from Walmart for $4.00.. Here in Florida they put out $10 coupon for new prescriptions. Maybe there is more competition.

I will try to check with you later on

I received this email from Erika and she asked me to post as she doesn't have a computer at home right now and is trying to use her phone which is giving her trouble also...

But, the good news is!!!!! George pooped...IMOM angels, please continue praying that George can work this problem out himself so his Momma doesn't have to stress and worry...

Here's what Erika wrote...

"When i got back home from the library george let out several nice size poops! Then again after 9:30pm. i will Be keepin a close eye on him over the next few days an if he is still letting them out by thurs then he wont have to return to the vet. There were atleast three big marbal size ones sofar+normal size ones. I take it to be good news. This was the same result when he was ok befor after an emana:) i will again keep you updated on his progress! Can U please also post this to my imom page! I willnot have access to a computer tomarrow to post the good news on george:) thank you again!"

Lactulose is dose to effect so too much will give the opposite of what you are trying to handle (as you found out)...Did you ever think you would get so excited about George's bathroom habits? You know you're in love with your kitty when you get excited about poops

Erika,

If you have a family emergency like that again, and you can't take George with you, please post and let us know. I would be willing to pay to board him at your vet's so he can get his meds, and I bet a couple other people would pitch in too. George seems to be doing really well as long as he gets his meds, and we'd hate to see him have a setback again because you had to go away unexpectedly.

Hugs to your boy! :kittydrinking:

Erika,

I wanted to say ....

Oops-Happy-Belated-Birthday.jpg

Sorry I am late. :blush: I knew it was in the summer - I just got a tad confused with all this hot, humid weather we've been having !!!!! :P

So glad that Georgge is doing better. Yep, you "know" how much you love your kitty when you get so excited over their 'poop habits'.

I have issues with my kitty - but the opposite now. Giving him stuff so he won't have diarrhea with his meds, as he has become sensitive to nearly everything. It's difficult I know.

Give the kitties cuddles for me; and I'm sending you :hugs: and love, not just for your Birthday, but EVERY day !!!!!! God bless you all.

Sending ALL of ou LOVE,

Donna and 'The Bandit' :wub:
