This is how she does it


I just thought you should see this: Danica at the vet this morning: two cats in each carrier, and the little one (Gingerello), in the bag with pink stripes! It was pouring too, and she was on the bike. So, just do the math, as people say. Incredible.

The little one's veins could not take any more needles, so his therapy was left for tomorrow. Also, in all this horror, he sits in this bag, so unbearably cute and innocent. And sick. Let's hope for the best.

It is a boy

Vet told Danica yesterday that little, yellow, extra cute Gingerella is actually a boy. Danica says she should change its name. He is also very sick, but the vet said that he may survive . He is on the antibiotic therapy, but introvenous. Danica also says he is very weak and scared.

Tomorrow Danica needs to take five(!!!) kitties to the vet. Sometimes, I can not even imagine how she does it.

It is never that nothing is going on...

I have same bad news from Danica's shelter: three kitties are sick. Among them, Okac, the one who had all those eye operations, and a new yellow kitten , Gingerella. She was vomiting a lot, and today, does not eat. Danica had already taken her to the vet, and they gave her some fluids, and something else, so she stopped vomiting, but she does not eat at all today.
Danica also fell when she was tending to thee cats in the basement part of the shelter, and she really hurt her head.

Only good news: Viktor brought much food from Hungary, and I am posting a picture of it. So, at this moment, food is not a problem, the vet bills are.

As to the medicine, she has currently vitamin paste (Gingerella loved it before she got sick), and she has all kinds of fleas medicine, and also some de-worming stuff. She always needs some ear cleaning fluids, hair ball stuff, and medicine for older kitties, with extra sensitive tummies, but, basically, now the money is most important for the vet bills.

The good news is : the new one (Danica calls her Jane Doe) is pretty well. I am also posting some of the pictures of her together with Gingerella, and a latest picture of poor Okac (has pneumonia).

Another kitten...where do they all come from in the winter?!

Danica , looking for a lost kitty from the shelter called Tigi, found another kitten . Actually, this kitten found her, because he (or she - Danica still doesn't know), simply approached her and , Danica says, almost begged her to take him... Danica says it was painful to watch and she could not leave him to freeze to death ( it is snowing over there and is very, very cold).

The little one was fed and wamed up, and as you can see, is sharing currently a cage with little Gingerella. She does not mind - on the contrary, likes to have a friend.. Danica can not name him yet, for she does not know kitty's sex.

Fortunately - Viktor is going tomorrow to Hungary, and will bring some good, but cheap food. I sent some money today, because some nice people sent donations. The new one was given some badly needed vitamins that Frank sent.

I do not know how cute I am...

I could not resist posting more pictures of the new one - Danica will call her Gingerella...Danica sprayed her today with Frontline and she did not like it.

Let us enjoy the photos of Gingerella.

Unbearably cute new kitten

Needles to say... Danica was bringing home , on her bike, Marponi from his cortisone therapy (he is really sick), when close to her house and the shelter she heard pitiful meowing...and meowing...In a car's engine there was a kitten, screaming...For half hour Danica was under that car, trying to get the little one out from the bottom side, and she managed.

With no unnecessary words, I am just posting the photos of the little one, after she had brought him to the shelter, gave him a warm bath, and food...Next step - trying to find him a home, and, fortunately, and like everywhere else, it is little easier to find a home for a cute kitten then an adult cat, no matter how nice.

Let's keep our fingers crossed.

p.s. She says that Frank,s catnip is still the most wanted thing among the kitties! Everyone is going crazy about it.

Have they ever heard of catnip?

Danica says that the cats went absolutely nuts about catnip that Frank had put into the medicine - vitamin package! However, Zule (the big yellow and white male), kind of grabbed everything for himself and it almost led to the real fight when other kitties came attracted by the grass.

Futka, (bushy black haired young girl), got so offended that eventually jumped up on Danica's knitting machine and refused for hours to come down...

The pictures are self explanatory.

Frank's package has arrived!

I am posting some delicious pictures of the Upper House members (those who are currently in Danica's apartment for various reasons, instead of downstairs in the shelter), discovering the joy of a new package from the U.S., but more then that - the ever growing tension and fuss about who is going to get into one of the boxes first!

Danica is very happy, because now she has a decent stockpile of good medicine for cats. Again, she thanks Frank from the bottom of her heart.

Oh, that cardboard box...

Until we get new pictures with happy kitties all over the medicine & vitamins package that Frank had sent - here are some pictures of some food that Viktor brought from Hungary...

Anyway, as you can see, they are happy and curious about the food, but - and anybody who knows cats will nod with a big smile- they are even happier because of a big upright cardboard box that Danica needed for something... Well, whatever it is that she needed this box for, she can not use it, for, there is a huge line of kitties waiting to take high rise position in this magical, wonderful box! Is there anything more cat-ish then loving to get into a cardboard box?
