Sorry this took so long to post. For some reason, in the mornings this forum (and another one for dogs- yes you have an "intruder"
) won't come up for me. I had to "take a break" from trying so I could get school started and finished with the kids sometime today, so here I am.
The most wonderful news...Tigger was not pregnant!!!!!! I was fine with my decision of having her spayed but finding that out really made me glad I had her done so she didn't get pregnant again!!
Unfortunatly, I was only able to keep her in the garage until this morning and then she practically attacked my husband when he opened the door to check on them, flew out the door into the upstairs and hid out until we opened the door to let the dog out, and she was gone. She is still hanging around the house at least. She is mewing for her babies, but she won't let me anywhere near her, lest she gets trapped again.
The boys came through fine, though I am a little worried about Mr.Ray. He is swollen this morning. The lady who took them for me brought them back late last night and he had made a huge mess in the carrier that she did not clean up, so he had been sitting in his own feces (with two opened wounds
)for I don't know how long. I am hoping it is not infected but I won't be surprised if it is. Any ideas what I can do? He has always been the gentlest of the kittens, but he's been very stand-offish today. He wasn't that way last night.
I am also having a problem with them using the litter box now. Because of the neutering I was told I needed to use shredded up paper for awhile in the litter box. Well, they used the paper but not for litter
. I walked into the garage and there was paper every where!!!
What do I do? They are now finding other places, and there are many in this garage, to do their business. Many in spots that I cannot see or get to, and the smell is
Thank you to all of you who were so supportive. You made the whole day easier yesterday and helped me feel right about the whole thing. Katie, if you ever read this, thank you for leading me to this forum. I am forever grateful to find a place I can come to for help, and actually get it. Thanks
As soon as I get my film develped (O to own a diggie!!!), I'll get some pics posted.
