No, no one died, I was the one in kitten heaven on Saturday at the Humane Society. We have a wonderful vet, Dr. Hank’s, that gives us numerous free days of surgery along with raising a ton of money for our Paws On Parade which will be in October. For every thousand dollars he and his team raises he gives us one day in the clinic! Last October they raised $10,000 so we got TEN free days of surgery! I am humbled by this man’s generosity and love for animals.
We had about 25 cats and kittens that were due to be spayed or neutered and we got through them all along with something very unexpected which I will tell you about later.
My job was to take the kittens after their surgery and cuddle them, watching their vitals signs and waiting for them to wake up. Dream job or what?!!
As you can see sometimes I had my hands full!!! There are three in this shot!
Lauren, our sweet vet tech, showed me how to listen to their hearts as sometimes I couldn’t feel the breathing and it scared the wits out of me! This little guy took a long time to wake up and I was getting very worried about her but she was fine!
It was loud!
Dr. Hanks loving on this little one. We had six totally black kittens.
Lauren had her hands full, these three were coming in for their pre-surgery check ups.
We had some unusual pets come in called dagoos, I think I spelled that right. They had been adopted by a nice couple but before they could be released they needed to be spayed and neutered. It is policy not to let anything out our doors without that being done.
They look sort of like a cross between a chinchilla and a gerbil.
Getting her anesthesia.
Hope you’re not queasy. :o)
Hummmmm………what’s this lump???????
Guess what?! This spay turned into a delivery!!! Here they are getting some oxygen, two little bundles of fur, well not much fur yet! They were so cute in a rodently kind of way!!!
The proud Mama! There was no way of knowing that she was expecting. Babies and Mom and doing fine and have gone to their new home. :o)
I’ve just about finished my Love Bears wall hanging although it came out bigger then I expected. I may put it in the church nursery instead of giving it to the people I was planning on and make them something smaller. I just need to put on the eyes and the backing and will be all done. I’ve been working on it for several weeks.
Miss T has been playing with my Go cutting system and having such fun. She’s been cutting out different things from the multitude of scraps that I have and putting them together and stitching around them. I think we might tackle a small quilt one of these days.
Guess that’s it for today. It’s raining here again but after watching the news about the folks in Missouri I have NOTHING to complain about!!! My heart goes out to those that lost everything, some including their lives. It is just unimaginable what this storm did to that little community. Let’s all keep them in our prayers!
