Progress is slow for little Gandalf



I was able to get a stool sample from Gandalf on Sunday and brought it into the shelter to have them look at it.  Unfortunately their head tech had gone home sick and the staff members who were working weren't as comfortable with their diagnostic skills and identification of parasites, however she did immediately say lungworm without knowing that he was suspected of having it, so I'm going to take that as confirmation of it.


I am fairly certain we have had some progress in his health. Generally giving him liquid medication has been trying because he had a difficult time deciding if he should be swallowing or breathing. The last two doses went in slightly easier. He also seems to be able to eat a bit more before having to take a break. I am cautiously optimistic.


Gandalf, however, cares not for my opinions on the matter, he simply wants to play.

  16. I love the little grey guy. It's true for all of us that we are like kids when we see these little cats. I have 2 cats at home. They are my kid's friends. We took them from the street when they were very, very little.
