Duchess spent two days at the veterinarian's office after she came to live with us. As you may know, she spent the past EIGHT YEARS in a local shelter. The day before I adopted her she spent time at the shelter vet so you can imagine my surprise when my vet told me she had five infected teeth, both ears were infected and her remaining eye was so infected she could not see!
When I went to my vet to retrieve her after her two day stay, the technician told me that "shelter care is not the same as regular care". How could that be? The shelter vets charge a discounted fee but does that mean the service they render is acceptably incompetent? This kitty and many other animals may be suffering under the "care" of veterinarians whose job it is to keep them well!
Unacceptable! All the more reason to adopt a shelter pet (or seven)!
She currently is not feeling her all-time best but in time she will recover and gain much needed weight.
She is a loving girl. Very trusting as well. I cannot imagine the suffering she has endured!
She has been in the upstairs guest bathroom since Thursday after her surgeries. She looked so sweet in her iron canopy cat bed but I have no photos. You'll have to take my word!
I, however, slept on the tile floor next to her. My back feels surprisingly good, though! LOL!
Faerie Princess and Atticus slept near her on the bed in our room this morning but Duchess didn't want them to get too close. She certainly is a bed hog!
I wish to thank everyone for their well-wishes. I have been busy with the little angel so I may not have responded to everyone as I would have liked...
To those in Irene's path...be safe. You are in my prayers!
