Well we finally got another Kitty. A lady had a stray who needed a forever home. She said he come to her a bag of skin and bones, declawed and neutered. He looks to me to be a little less than a year to a little over a year. She said she had him for two weeks, got a booster shot for him and dewormed him. He appears to be in good health other than being a little skinny now. He has clean eyes and nose, and breathing sounds very clear. He was obviously someones pet at one time for he is a very loveable kitty and loves to just snuggle and lay beside you begging to be petted I just cant believe someone would throw a defensless declawed kitty into the cold. He had two small wounds on his front legs one one each leg. They are almost totally healed and he does not bother them at all. She had some medicine from the vet for it and it has healed well. We really like him alot its just gooing to be a long time for him and squishy to become friends tho. He seems very upset around other animals. Im sure the bites on his legs helps his anxeity. While we were at his temporary owners house they had another cat and two dogs and he was very nervous from them. We have him confined to the bedroom when squishy is in the living room and then we switch them around for a while and let him be free in the living room to play and socialize. I also have an extra large dog crate that i will put him in when squishy is in the same room as him. She will just sit there and watch him. She wants to play with him but he is not ready for her yet and meows and hisses at her. He ran out of the other room this morning on accident when i was feeding squishy and ran up to her dish and when squishy hissed at him he snapped at her. He didnt bite her but he tried he even bit me cause i was trying to talk to him to calm him down yesterday when squishy got in the bedroom with us and jumped up on the bed right in front of him. He freaked out and i just was talking to him and he reacted in fear and bit me. Hurt like crap but we left him alone for a minute and he was fine and is still lovey dovey little boy. We are very patient with him and know it is going to take a little while for him to warm up to squishy. I iknow he is going to be a good kitty when he gets his weight back and learns to trust his family. Pics will come soon.
