On a side note, I got bit by a cat at work today. It was just a peanut of a cat, about 6lbs. The owner said she had been close and cuddling with it the night before. She looked a little freaked so I was taking extra precautions, but while putting her in the cage I got nabbed. Just enough to break the skin and make me bleed. I have not been vaccinated against rabies (but I am against tetanus according to my doctor who didn't call me back for over 5 hours, then didn't mention anything but tetanus) but Im not all that worried. The owner said she had been with her for a month previous to this (quarantine is for 10 days), but to be on the safe side we are quarantining her for 10 days. I feel bad. Not to mention my finger (where I got bit) hurts. *sigh* I think I really need a vacation.

I have pictures of the trip, but Im not really in the mood to edit them. Two reasons, one being Tweedle's health, the other is the moron clients I have to put up with. Im in a major bah humbug mood... so I'll get to the photos soon. I promise.
Tweedle however, I don't know what Im going to do. Wednesday morning I was checking my email, and she came up to me weezing. I took her right in to work. They took an xray, and nothing abnormal showed up on it. Because of her history when being spayed, they are recommending an ultrasound. For the time being she is on Prednisone and Clavamox. Not the most fun thing in the world trying to pill her... and worse I have to pill Eli too who is still on meds for his UTI. Its a free for all here in the morning!! We are trying to set up an ultrasound with the clinic in NH, but they aren't getting back to us. In the mean time I was playing with Twee, and she all too quickly got out of breath. :( Hopefully it is nothing and clears up before we can even get an ultrasound appointment!!

I swear in the few days they have been on kitten food they have almost doubled in size. Ok.. maybe not doubled, but they are HUGE!! The wonderful owners of Downeast Pet Supply have agreed to sell me the food at cost. And I didn't even have to ask!! I mentioned I wanted to buy for the shelter, and the owner just gave me the price at cost!!
Not only that, but they are going to donate 10 cases as well!!!
Now if we could just keep the shelter in kitten food I'd be happy! I can't imagine constantly buying it for them. I raised about $500 through Ebay selling off some items I had around the house, and a few I found at a local clearance house.

Mom, there are kittens behind this door!!
Let us OUT!!
I weighed them last night, they are 1 lb and about 3 ounces. I so need some good quality kitten food! will have to make that a priority tonight. Mom's belly is nice and full, but you can feel all her bones. I hate feeding kittens adult food.
