I just can't seem to get rid of Efah's Upper Respiratory Infection! Everytime we go through the meds, he gets better and as soon as he goes off the meds he gunks up again. I'm frustrated enough to take him in to see my vet, but I don't have any funds to do so. I'll just have to keep him on the meds I have now and see if Laniq can get him in somewhere on the shelter's dime. I hate doing that because then I never get any real answers, though.
I just spent nearly $80 on Roz yesterday. She's got more steroids for her mouth and some Clavamox, an antibiotic that we hope will clear any infection. I also got ear mite solution for every cat in the house. Boy do I really hope all of that finally can knock out her rodent mouth! If it doesn't, then Dr. Huskey says there's some possibility of very rare issues. All very costly.
We had several adoptions yesterday, but Efah and Nimue both are still with me. Nimue was actually the better behaved of the two for once. For some reason Efah was growl-ey all day. In fact, a couple came up to adopt a cat who had seen him last week and remembered him and Wanted him. But he growled when the lady held him, so they adopted two other cats. Thanks, Efah. Thanks a heap!
Next week I am running the adopt a pet with a few other volunteers. Laniq is going to a graduation ceremony. I'm dreading the transport issue, but am looking forward to being in charge. It would be really awesome if we had as many adoptions and foster-to-adopts as we did yesterday. We adopted out 3 cats and 5 others went out as foster-to-adopt. It was a pretty good day yesterday. Even one of those adoptions was a shelter cat who has been with us for a long while.
