Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star


Just a little Star Report.
She's doing great!  Eating, drinking and sleeping well.
She's trotting along beside me as I walk around the house.
She loves to look out the window.
She's still dreadfully thin but it will take a
while to get her to a healthy weight.
She still loves this big bowl, but has also
taken to sleeping stretched out in the window seat
instead of sleeping sitting up as if she's on guard.
I think that is a very good sign!
I worked an auction today so she was on her own
with the other cats.  Looks like everyone did great!

  2. Aw - she looks a lot better... I don't think she has a grumpy face at all! I am glad everyone behaved while you were gone and it's great that she is less "on guard." Happy sign indeed.

    2. I think Keith may be right. And how lovely to have another girl - you don't have many!

    3. No, not too many! And some disappeared, like Tipper, Oreo and Grey.

    1. Funny...it was Peaches that I put all the blood, sweat and tears into...and didn't get to see him thrive.
      Star comes along and is hardly any work at all...just a knock on the door and handed to me.
      She just needed food and love. :)

    1. I wonder which life she is on.
      Hope 8 aren't already gone.
      Although she was pretty bad.
      Maybe a few are already had.

    2. That may be
      But at least so wasn't so skinny
      That she needed to be fed through a tube in the neck
      That is not fun to have on deck

      Delete
    3. That is very true.
      Didn't have that at the zoo.
      She might have had that at the vet
      where 14 days she took what she could get.

  7. Star looks as if she feels safe in the bowl. My daughter's cat loves to hide in cardboard boxes. It's just her thing.

  8. Aw, Betsy, she looks really good. All those issues and already I see an improvement in her eyes. I see she lost the tip of her ear, too. Well, you are her angel, for sure. She reminds me so much of an older cat I adopted that was black and had a round face like Star. I named her Dharma and she was with us for 5 years. She had a full life as we think she was 14 when we adopted her. Thanks for the memory-jog. Do you leave food outside for your cats? I'm wondering if Peaches comes by to eat and then leaves.

    1. She's made some big improvements, that is for sure. It's amazing what hydration and food will do for you. If the humane society spays/neuters a cat, they will tip the ear as a sign that the cat is already fixed, so I'm guessing that is what happened there. And she's been declawed...someone had her as an indoor pet at one time.

      Dharma sounds like a sweetheart.....

      We can't leave food outside any more...we had so many raccoon and skunks when we did that! Peach would just lay out on the porch and nap until I came out and fed him, so I doubt he would change that routine now. Who knows what happened....I fear the worst but hope for the best.

      She needs a good brushing but she won't let me do that yet.

    1. She has adjusted SO well...I'm surprised, actually. I thought she might cower under a bed for weeks but she has done very well.
      She looks better every day! Can't believe we've had her a week already!
