Well maybe outside can wait.. 

Charlotte has been on the shelter website for several weeks now 'available for adoption' but with out a single request for more information. Considering how fearful Charlotte was when she showed up, I was afraid to just drop her off at the shelter to be adopted thinking she would totally revert to being afraid. I thought I would try to take her in to work and see how she reacted there. I totally expected her to completely freak out which is why I took her on the weekend.  I figured if it went badly I could pack her right up and bring her home.

She did so amazingly well that at this point I'm pretty much being selfish by not bringing her in. I should have simply driven there afterwards and dropped her off. Then I should have arranged something afterwards.  Even now that little angel (or devil) on my shoulder is chiding me for not having emailed the shelter to see if they have room for her (of course they do, this is the slow season) and make plans to get her in there..

I know that until I do the shelter won't call me to take kittens (not that they have any to give at this point... there have only been a few and they generally go home with staff at this time of year because they get kitten fever too) so it will be soon.. but not today.. maybe tomorrow..

btw, someone asked about her coat.. it is still being weird..


There are a few more patches starting to grow in, her belly is doing slightly better.. I had realized that where her fur was growing back on her flank is where I put coconut oil to help her incision heal. So I dug out the remainder of that coconut oil that I had brought down and put some on her and had planned to use the rest of it over the next few days. Charlotte had other plans though and simply ate the oil right out of the shallow dish I had it in. She is the first cat out of 20 or so that I've offered it to that actually ate it

  2. I have to laugh--the little patch of fur on top near her bare area sort of looks like a toupee. Glad she did so well! She's come a long way.

  6. Maybe ingesting the coconut oil will help her coat from the "inside". Hopefully you'll be able to get some on her bare spots.
