I went to check on the dog Candy for someone yesterday. Decided to take a stroll through the cat room. Saw this cat that I actually started to network the day before. Asked to see her, very light ( a little over 5#) and frail. Cat was owner turn-in, owner evidently developed case of allergies. The kind that takes 17 years to develop. After giving it some thought, I decided to take kit and have her spend her last days in a better environment. I was pretty confident that as an owner turn -in she wouldn't have one of those communicable diseases.
Anyway, I took her straight to my vet. The beginnings of renal failure, heart sounded good, I did not opt to have X-rays taken as I would not be doing any heroic measures with her if cancer was present. Teeth are bad and may need a canine pulled.
I think I will keep her name, Snooper. One of my staffies is named Snoopy (I kept his name as an owner turn-in) She is very sweet and affectionate. She has a loud voice and uses it well until I figure out what it is that she wants. She likes to sit on the bed on top of a pillow, so no joint problems here, what with her jumping up and down from the bed. I am keeping her alone in a bedroom and visiting her throughout the day. If she gets stronger and gains weight, I may slowly start introducing her to the others.
Sorry, no pics at this time.
Forgot to mention she had been declawed
