Surgery went fine. I’d mentioned to the staff that Semi (and Tonka) were boys, they’d mentioned it to me various times, but somehow it never got entered in their paper work. So Semi got the stronger drugs, but at least not the tougher surgery. They are not very loopy despite the drugs. Semi had a little trouble gauging the distance to drink water, but didn’t get all weird about it. I’ve not seen Diesel have any problems.
Big Rig was fine being without siblings all morning, mostly napping. Then I went downstairs and she woke up and panicked. So I stayed with her until I had to leave to bring her siblings back. Semi may be pretty lonely tomorrow. I hope he gets adopted quickly. Big Rig and Diesel get to go to their new home tomorrow morning, after the paperwork is done.
They get along well. Their new names will be Maia and Kalino, after stars in the Pleiades. (Spelling may differ). Surgery tomorrow for Semi and Diesel-Kalino.
Medicine or no, everyone is feeling better and all active. Semi is close enough to 2 pounds and Diesel is well beyond so they get fixed this Thursday. Someone is finally able to jump onto my work desk in the room and knock things down. For another few day, probably all I need to do is move the chair further away when I’m not working, and then they’ll be all adopted and jumping on things in other peoples’ houses.
Or one, as Diesel is spoken for. Two surgeries though. I see by the shelter’s ‘adoptable cats’ page that Mater is no longer listed. She was franticly lonely being in the carrier by herself, and looked sad in the cage. Semi will have that to deal with next week.
This morning, Semi’s ribbon collar had gotten too loose and he caught his jaw in it. I cut the ribbon, but gave him a new one, tighter.
Everyone got runny. Tonka and Mater got meds, and everyone is cheerier and eating more. Mater and Tonka were on adoption row today and now Tonka has his own home. (BigRig is Paula’s now but is hanging out here with her sister, Diesel, who will also be Paula’s, so they can break in their new home together.) Sounds like a soap opera synopsis.
The fixed kittens are fine. BigRig’s eye was less squinty after just 2 doses of eyedrops.
Semi and Diesel continue to not gain much, and Semi lost a few ounces. Both have been very ‘loose’. It looks like they’re perking up this evening. No surgery until next Tuesday, but a possible vet visit tomorrow morning.
