Some Good News, Some Bad News

Momcat and Little Black One seem to have disappeared. I've not seen them, and their food is for the most part untouched. Even Patches Man is nowhere to be found. I think it is possible that he is the father of the kittens, since I saw him at the den with Momcat several times. I'm continuing to put out food and am keeping an eye open for them.

Some good news is that another "stray" resident of the building site, a very fluffy cat that I call Fluffmonster, does have a home. I was never sure whether she was a stray or just and indoor/outdoor cat (no collar), but today I saw that she had her belly shaved and had her ladycat-operation. Yay!

Also today, I took Little Tabby to my vet for a checkup. The good news is that he is FIV and FeLV negative! Yay! What a relief. Unfortunately the bad news is that he has ringworm. They took some hair to grow a culture, but the vet says from the symptoms he is positive that it's ringworm. He gave me some meds for I have to apply to the affected areas. It means that he still has to be kept away from the 2 Bs, which is sad. I can see that LT is lonely, and in my one bedroom apartment the 2 Bs are not happy to be confined to the living room. In any case I'm just relieved that the FIV and FeLV were negative.

Little Tabby loves Quincy fev-vers!

I'll try to post the next part of the story of Mrs. B tomorrow or Wednesday. I'm sorry I've not had time to visit all the blogs lately. That stupid thing called a job, does not care whether there is a kitty crisis.

I also apologize to the winners of our I love the 2 Bs competition. I have not send out your prizes yet! I'll try to do it before the end of the week.

What a little cutie!!!!!!!!

Chey & Hot(m)bc - yes, to me the main thing is the negatibe FIV and FeLV. The ringworm is just the inconvenience of keeping the cats apart and keeping LT confined. He is realy very playfull so I wanted him to be able to run around freely. Well, I just hope it will not take to long to clear-up.

Quincy - we still have some fev-vers, but maybe in future I'll ask you for a few more. He goes CRAZY for them. It some stage I'll try to get some video of that.

Rebecca - I'm in Baton Rouge.

Thanks for the update. My heart still breaks for Precious' kittens and I hope they found a good home, or like some have said, they were Angel kitties and when I found Precious their job was done. Maybe, it is the same for Little Tabby!

Those Quincy fevvers is the bestest. Glad Tabby is healthy wifout the ucky diseases. Such a cutie.

That is good news that little Tabby has a clean bill of health. With modern medication the ringworm should clear up in no time.A cat I adopted several years ago had ringworm and passed it on to her litter of seven kittens. I kept them away from the nine other cats I had "inherited" at the time and we never had any problem with clearing it up.

He is just so cute! A handsome tabby! Yes, glad to hear a good report from the vet and like everyone else said, the ringworm will clear. Just make sure it's good and gone, because I've heard it's very contagious. I'm sure you know this. I've not ever had to deal with it, but we just had a problem with a kitty in the rescue group I foster for. Little Solomon had ringworm and it came back after they thought they had gotten rid of it.

LOKi said...

Yup, that's a little tabby kitten, awright. If ringworm is the worst he gets, he's a lucky lil guy. He's sure to find a furever home wif those cute eyes an huntin skills.
