It’s been a while since I’ve posted! The news is all good so far. The kitten got to come home on Wednesday! She’s been living in my bedroom and bathroom while I keep my other cat in the kitchen and living room. She walks around just fine on pain killers, and we’re hoping she continues to be okay as they wear off today. We’re looking at about 2-3 weeks for recovery of the fractured hip plate.
Bathroom habits seem to be good. She’s pooping in her litter box, but I haven’t seen her pee yet. Her anal tone is returning, but her tail still drags along the ground. Apparently it can take 2-3 months for that to happen. If she doesn’t regain control of it, amputation might be something I need to look into.
My girlfriend’s mother made a comment about how she looks like a Buttercup. My girlfriend loved the name, and kept begging me to name her Buttercup. I couldn’t think of a better name and caved, so she’s Buttercup.
Again a HUGE thank you to everyone that’s helped out with the cost of helping her. I’m set up a donation option for those who would like to continue helping fund the kitten’s recovery. I’m currently over $600 down. Please don’t feel obligated to give anything. While I can certainly afford to care for her, I do appreciate any donations that can be given.
