Jake's vet visit

Posted by: Tamandua.Girl / Category: , ,

Jake went to the vet today and got his first shot. He'll get another in a month then the last one in another month or when he's neutered, depending. He also got wormed topically with something new that kills tapes too. Maybe I should have been more skeptical of something new but I liked the idea of the one worming and being done.

I put a harness on him and brought his crate incase he freaked out, as normal cats do. He loved it. He climbed up on my shoulder to look out, tried to explore the car but I wouldn't let him in the front then napped. She didn't find any air still under his skin and he only had a tiny red spot left by his belly button instead of the big bruise he had. She said maybe a dog bit him and the pulling of the skin by the tooth could let air under the skin but I think he'd be in a lot worse shape if he got bit by a dog. Seems to me he fell out of the tree, at least part way. Hit his chest on a limb forcing some air from his lung, a minor bruised lung can sometimes be symptom free though most cases aren't minor. I never found any wounds either except for the bruise. The important part we agreed on which is he's just fine so I didn't bother explaining my bruise lung theory. He loved the vet and kept climbing up onto her shoulder. He was a hit being in a harness where everyone could see him and not screaming in a crate.

After the vet he was hungry so he had some of the Iams kitten that came in his welcome kitty package and ate it from my hand. This is not a normal cat, lol. Then he got restless and meowing so when we stopped at the store Dad walked him and he pooped under a bush while we bought some more food for him. He slept most of the ride home.
Really sorry I forgot my camera because it went so well.

Jake day 2

Posted by: Anteaters & Foxes / Category: ,

Pua has been sleeping in and night-owling so not much to report though she still talks me into playing with her a bit.

He's probably about three months old. Looks like he got all his baby teeth but has lost the front two. The front four adult teeth grow in 3.5-4 months.

The litter stuck on his feet is from the time he spent at the neighbors. We don't use clumping because it sticks like that.

I think he's at least part Bombay cat. I'm sure lots of people with a black cat think that but He looks a lot like them and he has the personality of one to a T. The basic description was bred to look like a mini black leopard, contended, purrs almost all the time, wants to be with people all the time, heat seekers(he wants to be on you preferably around your neck or head). He is always purring when with someone which he tries to always be with someone. He may have gotten left behind when a neighbor on another street moved.

They have this gorgeous black cat in a fancy collar sometimes maybe he was a kitten from that cat or they got him before moving. I thought I saw a kitten there once before they moved but they moved weeks ago.

The other option is a trailer park kitty. Most of them run wild but are friendly though they had some feral trapping for spay neuter this summer. There is one overly friendly black cat there that might have sired him but that fellow doesn't have the same distinctive look so I lean to the first option.

May never know. Though suppose i could try asking him. Dad said he's a Christmas present and jump out of Santa's sleigh to soon and fell into that tree :D
