Settling in.

New kitty is feeling more at home now. We even got her to play just a little bit. She's spending less time under the bed, too. I think she has cat lice, so I went out and paid retail (!) for a box of Frontline Plus because I needed it right away, and treated all three cats. My wallet still hurts. She still needs to see the vet, pronto. Her breath stinks and she sort of drools a bit - could be an abcess or something going on in her mouth. I hope it isn't anything worse than that. I'll keep you posted.

I had to read and update myself on the situation. You have such a big heart! I hope everything works out for the poor little cat!!!

I'm taking new cat to the vet this afternoon. I hope there isn't too much stuff wrong with it. I don't have any history, so will have to (re)do vaccinations and all that. It will be nice to get an estimate of the cat's age, and to know if it is male or female. I'll post pictures soon!

I admire your bravery, taking on another cat. The one I have nearly makes me suicidal all by himself! Good to know he's going to have a good home at least.

Oh yeah, Riley's breath was something to behold. I damn near gagged while driving when he breathed on me - makes regular vile cat breath almost palatable (for lack of a better term).
