We have some great news about foster brothers, Sylvester and Sneakers. From the Facebook cover photo of these two fur-babies, we were contacted about their adoption availability. After several conversations, it was arranged that Mr. and Mrs. New Pet Owners would come for a meet-and-greet yesterday. It is always amazing to see how the fosters act so differently with others. Typically, Sneakers is the shy boy while Sylvester is the first to come to us for attention. Not with their new family though. Sylvester spent most of his time under the sofa and Sneakers had the more outgoing personality. That change didn't stop the humans from falling in love and they have completed the first step in paperwork to adopt them after they go back to Charleston Animal Society to be neutered.
Last weigh-in on the home scales was on Saturday and Sneakers showed he was 2 lbs 2 oz. while little Sylvester was weighing in around 1 lb 13 oz. They go back to CAS on Friday for their recheck, and I am confident the appointment will end with our scheduling their surgeries for next week.
Hamster received his next Meow Box on Saturday. Typically, he doesn't go "wild" about the contents as they are tightly packaged. This box, however, had a container of treats and it was obvious he was wild about the smell even thought the packaging was secure and very difficult for me to open. It was funny to watch him digging in the box to try and get to these brewer's yeast treats and it's been even better to watch him enjoy having them crushed up in his food (he's eating like a champ). It's nice to see him have a good appetite after his recent dental where his teeth were cleaned and he had to have several extractions due to the FIV. He doesn't seem to be bothered that he doesn't have a full mouth of chompers. Such a trooper he is! He did have a little bit of what I'll call a mouth sore, so on Friday he went back to Pet Helper's vet. Nothing to be concerned about as it is a spot where one of his canines is rubbing against his lip. However, they did put him on an antibiotic for several days and that will end very soon. We are thankful that Pet Helpers can help him feel his very best and we can keep him as healthy and happy as possible. FIV is not something to be fearful of, but education about this virus is essential to keep these infected cats in as best condition as possible.
With that last piece of cuteness, we will say "goodbye" for now. We hope everyone is enjoying their Fall 2014 and has a purrfect week. Thank you for reading.
