Last week the little guy developed symptoms of a delicate nature and he asked me not to divulge his particular ailment, so I won’t. (Starts with a “D”) Shhhhhh. This is a bad situation for a small kitten and could lead to death if not properly attended to. I took him back to the shelter to be checked out by Miss Tonya.
She checked little Stormy out and gave me 10 vials of medicine to take home with me. He actually likes the medicine and takes it like a trooper. Meanwhile, he continues to be a sweet, active, funny kitten who doesn’t act sick at all.
For anyone interested in TURTLEGATE 2014, here’s the latest. Turtle # 2 didn’t even stick around long enough to get a name. After checking him out and looking up some information in the inter-webs, I determined that this guy was NOT a box turtle but a water creature. He had webbed feet and scary looking toenails! I walked him to the edge of the lake in front of my house and as soon as he smelled the water he was off like a bullet!
Martha, my neighbor warned me that my turtle adventures are not over since I am apparently a turtle magnet. The woman must be clairvoyant.
What is it with you and turtles? And poor Stormy must have had a stormy going on inside 🙂 Needs some good probiotics 🙂
I have always loved turtles. I guess they sense this and they walk into the middle of the road when they feel the vibrations of my car. And about Stormy…I would say half my foster kittens develop the D word during their stay with me. They usually come from very unhygienic situations and I guess they bring the bug with them. I haven’t lost one yet. 🙂
