~ Teddy went in for his dental yesterday & unfortunately, his blood work did not look good to be put under anesthesia πŸ˜” His kidney values had worsened & the vet was very concerned. She did take a look in his mouth & the poor guy has ulcers on his tongue which is what is causing his drooling. Tina snapped a picture of his tongue which I've posted in the comments in case it was too sensitive for anyone to view.

The recommendation was to keep him there on IV fluids until Wed. & see if his numbers improve enough to go under anesthesia to get his dental. The hope is that any bad teeth can be extracted & any existing teeth can be cleaned. If we can get him through this then from there it'll be daily med treatment & subq fluids to keep him comfortable, hopefully get his kidney disease to a manageable point & give him some quality of life finally feeling comfortable & pain free πŸ™

~ Do you have a soft spot for older kitties or maybe for kitties who have lived a hard life out on the streets & are now ready to retire in a forever home? Miss Kiki might just be your girl.
.
Just a few short weeks ago the tables had finally turned in her favor & she was brought inside after living likely her whole life just making it from day to day on the streets of Charlotte, NC. Her coat & especially her lack of teeth (she only has 2 left!) made it clear life hadn't been kind & according to her rescuer/foster mom, since coming inside Kiki has not looked back!
.
She is very low maintenance & enjoys spending her days lounging around. She is spayed, up to date on shots, bloodwork shows no concerns & is estimated to be 7-10 years old. She's a bit skittish at first, may hide & will need a quiet home & patient person to allow her to blossom as she feels comfortable, but we have proof she may become a lap cat (foster mom shared a video with Kiki in her lap). Right now Kiki's foster situation is temporary, so if you know of just the perfect home please feel free to reach out to us at: PML24@hotmail.com. If the right home is found we would consider bringing Kiki under our rescue as a lifetime foster.

~ Teddy Ultrasound Update: So, according to the ultrasound the vet didn't see any masses or anything overwhelming that stood out to indicate a definite cancer anywhere. He has some thickening in the intestines & an enlarged kidney which she said could be early indications of cancer. She also said there wasn't much free fluid in his abdomen, but the little bit could also be indications of early/mild cancer or FIP. No tumors or stones were found, though, so she said the plan now is to put him on a liquid med (telmisartan) to help with the high protein, & to keep on with the buprenorphine & gabapentin & I believe antibiotics. She feels he is stable enough & wants to get his teeth/mouth taken care of asap, so that is scheduled for Monday. Then she said after his dental & a month on this treatment plan to bring him back in to recheck his status/values.

He is a bit stressed & pulling out some fur, no doubt from all the back & forth to vet appointments & getting meds/fluids, etc., but we're hoping after Monday that the meds will help him chill & be able to relax a little more.

Once we get him through all of this & he's at a more stable place (mentally & physically) we'd love to find him his own castle (maybe with Kiki?) where he can retire & spend his days napping in sunbeams, getting treats, & being loved & spoiled by his own person. Please email PML24@hotmail.com if interested & we can discuss them both being P4L lifetime fosters.

~ "Do these floofs make my feets look big??" πŸΎπŸ±πŸ€— Miss Kiki had her grooming appt on Monday βœ‚οΈ & she did very well. According to the groomer "she was very sweet, just a little hissy." Way to go Kiki πŸŽ‰ We're so proud πŸŽ€
.
She was living a hard life outside on the streets in Charlotte, NC with no family to give her the care she deserved. Thankfully a kind lady was stopping by the area daily to put some food out for Kiki & a few colony mates when she noticed Kiki looked terrible & like she needed some medical attention. It was just a couple of weeks ago she caught Kiki & another rough looking kitty & brought them inside & then reached out to rescues on social media for help. We decided we could help with costs to get them medical care & now that they are inside it became clear they are not feral & they seem quite comfortable being inside.
.
Kiki is estimated to be 7-10 years old & only has 2 teeth left 😯🦷 She is spayed, up to date on shots, & her bloodwork shows no concerns. She's a bit skittish & will need some time to feel comfortable, but she is ready to retire in the comfort & stability of a safe, quiet, patient & loving indoor home. Right now her foster situation is temporary, so if you know of just the perfect home for one (or both kitties, but they don't have to stay together) please feel free to reach out to us at: PML24@hotmail.com. If the right home is found we would consider bringing Kiki (and/or the other kitty) under our rescue as a lifetime foster.

~ KIKI & TEDDY ~ The 2 kitties from the Charlotte colony who needed medical attention ~

While we wait for his ultrasound this coming Thursday, Teddy has been having some good days & then some bad days. We're really hoping we'll get some answers with the ultrasound as to what may be going on inside (i.e. kidney abnormalities, bladder cancer, etc.). Thankfully the stronger antibiotics & pain meds have helped ease the drooling & blood in his urine for the time being (although he does still drool here & there).

Kiki continues to be her feisty self & continues to rest & she'll be going in to be groomed soon.

In the meantime, Tina spends lots of time with both kitties working on socializing them & helping them adjust to being indoors. It's obvious these kids have lived a rough life up until recently & they deserve to live the remainder of their lives being cared for & loved (on their terms) in a safe, patient, & quiet home. Right now their living situation is temporary, so if you know of just the perfect home for one or both of them (they aren't bonded & don't have to stay together) please feel free to reach out to us at: PML24@hotmail.com ~ If the right situation is found we may consider bringing them under our rescue as lifetime fosters.

~ Buddy came through his extractions yesterday just fine. He had 6 premolars removed & the vet was surprised to find that he had an extra premolar on the lower left side 🦷 We always knew Buddy was special πŸ€— His recovery is going well & he's resting like he should. Your donations make ALL the difference in the care we're able to provide the kitties, so we thank each & everyone of you for all of your support πŸ™πŸ‘ŠπŸ’—
