Kit-Cat Update

Kit-Cat did so good at his vet appointment the other day! He’s such a calm little boy.

Me, on the other hand, well…I saw stars and had to sit down.

Apparently I get faint at all doctor’s appointments…not just my own.

I’m sure it had something to do with the up-close-and-personal visual of the vet pushing Kit-Cat’s pins back into his leg. (They had started to pop out through his skin….*shudder*) Apparently that’s normal, and if everything continues to heal right, they’ll be able to take the pins out for good in a couple of weeks. Yay!

We’re going to take care of him until he’s ready to go to his forever home. (More news about that when we know exactly which home that is!)

We sure will miss the little guy though.

Max, on the other hand….I think he wants the other half of “his” house back.

    What a beautiful kitten. I wish I lived closer, because I would take him. I lost my cat of 16 years this past January. I miss him dearly. I hope you find him a good and safe home. He deserves it. And may you be blessed for taking the time to care for him. I know he appreciates it.

    We have a stray kitty that we had to have pins put in her back leg too! She also had the pins push back out through the skin and they\ vet eventually removed them. It’s been two years and she is doing great. Hope your kit-kat has the same results. :)

    Oh Layla! He is adorable!! And I would have been flat out on the floor if ANYTHING was sticking out that wasn’t supposed to be. Sheesh!

    From one animal lover to another, I’ve had my woozy moments at the vet on more than one occasion. You’re not alone! Kit-Cat is beautiful and so blessed to have rescuers like you. Who knows, maybe your pup will warm up to him!

    LAYLA, i am probably your girl (the keeper of kitkat) anyone that knows me, knows i am an animal lover especially of cats. my black cat “scooter” (age 15) just died a few months ago & things around here are not the same. i have always been a black cat girl, as a matter of fact i had a cat that looks just like kitkat back in the mid 80’s (age 15), he was also one i can’t forget. i don’t know how far we are from each other but i would cross the sea for a critter. does this llittle guy need me? i would like to think so.

    I guess I am secretly hoping you end up with Kit-Cat. You showed such love when you rescued him and you’ve bonded with him. Maybe it’s meant to be. Our animals choose us. I have 3 rescues right now and I am so thankful I have them in my life.

    You and Kevin are kitty angels!
