Sparkle comes home

Cat update 05 11 2022

This last month has been busy.

As you know, I got a call from the local shelter that they had Foxy Girl. She’s home and doing great. About a week later they called again, saying that they had another of my cats. They had Destiny, the mamma of the nine kittens from 2020. She had run off a couple of days after I let her outside. The bad news was that she had been hit by a car and had died. They cremated her for free. Then, before I had a chance to pick up Destiny’s ashes, they called again saying they had another of my cats. This time it was Sparkle who had been missing for about a week. Sparkle is back home and staying a little closer to home. All three were completely separate incidents.

When I got the winter mats and tangles off of Little Sweety, one of the barn kitties, I was shocked to see how skinny she was. She was eating like a horse and always wanting more. I took her in to the vet and found that she has hyperthyroidism which had kicked her metabolism into overdrive. So now she’s getting a pill twice a day. She’ll get checked again in 6 weeks.

Somewhere in the middle of all that, my water heater sprung a leak. It took awhile but I managed to replace it myself. That saved me about a thousand dollars instead of hiring it done. Good times.
