‘Bye, Kama!

Kama’s off to his foster home as of a couple of hours ago. Well, it’s a foster home now. Whether it will stay a “foster” home, I’m not so sure – he’s such an easy cat to love! He’s going to be happy there, whether it’s forever or for now. Earlier today, well, he had his vet visit. Apparently he has a heat murmur (II out of VI in severity), but that’s not so bad, really. Overall, doing surprisingly well after his ordeal, and nearly ten pounds despite being underweight! Treated for fleas and worms, got his shots, and getting…

Morning Kama report

Well, looks like he’s off today  to a vet visit this morning, then possibly back here for a bit until his new foster mom can be home. I’m going to miss him, but my cats definitely are not – they’re making their agitation over this intruder extremely clear. Our trio have formed their own family and they want no one else in their territory, especially not an un-neutered young male! Judging by the condition of his cage, he was playing last night: that water bowl is next to impossible to tip entirely, but it got shaken enough to slop water…

Kama… Playing?!?!

Okay, as if we needed any further proof of how resilient cats are (not that they should ever HAVE to be, of course)… There’s not much I can add that the video doesn’t say for itself. Stamina still low, of course, and he certainly hasn’t gotten back to a healthy weight overnight, and yet, he’s looking just a bit less gaunt, somehow. Just watch the video. I was on the edge of crying while I was taping it. It takes so little to make all the difference in the world for a living spirit in need… In other news… Kama’s…

Morning After with Kama

Kama was seriously glad to see us this morning. He seems a tad unconvinced when I point out that cage with hammock etc in a warm room is better than the garden centre tent – because he knows there are people outside his room who will pet him but we left him overnight! He’s absolutely desperate for contact, poor baby. After cage cleaning and some very active petting, he’s now collapsed next to me, but he’s making sure that his back is up against my leg. He’s showing spurts of excitement, especially when we first come in the room, and during them…

New Temporary Houseguest!

Our story so far, with pics to come once she has a chance to settle in: Friday night, just after dark, I was on my way to the grocery store to pick up some stuff for supper – Jackie had a job interview earlier that day that she felt went very well, and she was tired, and we thought we’d have a bit of a treat to celebrate. In the middle of a large Canadian Tire parking lot bracketed by two of the busiest streets in the city, I spotted a cat trotting across the pavement, ducking under cars and…

Cuddle, Play, Eat, Sleep

Approximately in that order – I’ve lost count of how many little nose-licks I’ve gotten from Cole, and a few times I’ve had to clean kitten nose-prints off my glasses because of particularly enthusiastic cheek-rubs. As soon as we go in to see him, which we do as much as possible, he greets us and comes to say hi immediately. He loves being picked up and cuddled, he snuggles right up under my neck at times, purring madly the whole time. I flopped onto my back once while holding him, and he draped himself across my neck for maybe half…

Cole, Being Cute

Being cute comes naturally. Whoever adopts Cole had better like having a cat who sleeps on the bed – because Cole does! And he wakes up cuddly. Hungry, too, but then, he’s just a little guy and he’s growing! That stuffed mouse has become his favourite toy, he absolutely loves it. That’s the first video below. And he proved to me all over again this afternoon that he is far too trusting and too comfortable with being touched and handled to have been born to a feral mom. That’s the second video. Throat, ears, even his belly, he just purrs…
