A few more pics for Tina fans.
She hasn't really ballooned :) Just shows how camera angle can distort. However, I am happy to report she has put on a little weight and is now 2.9KG

She is so beautiful. She looks brighter eyed already in the photos. Bet she'll look even better with a bit more weight on her.
So glad she's somewhere warm and safe after all the recent storms!

Thats what Moira said on the phone, she would not have lasted until today outside we think cos another bite and it would have killed her along with the raging infection she had......I just feel so relieved and also have to thank Sue for donation and a Purrs person for the same  :hug:

Tina went to the vets today and she is a lot better than last week and her tail is healing nicely. The vet said that because its a big would that is good cos the infection has not got locked in causing an abcess. It is exoected that the scab will start to come off next week sometime.

She has flaky skin down to poor nutrution but she is gobbling food at a rate of knots right now so nothing to worry about.

In the picture she looks so much better already than she did  ;D


She has had blood taken for FIV/FeLV tests and ger first jab, including FeLV and test results will be back in 1-2 weeks.
The other part of the jab will be in 3 weeks.

It cannot be told whether she is spayed and I have asked you all a question  about this .

So I think in 11/2 weeks all is going very well and Mpira has also told me that she has met a couple of other cats briefly and apart from a hiss and a growl Tina has stayed in her place on the sofa  ;D  Nothings changed then cos she did that at Sues with the dog,

She also has been batting around a pebble that came in accidently and is asking to explore, so she is starting to befave like a youing cat should.

Her age has been reassessed at under a year old by the vet that saw her today.

I am sooo pleased how she is doing  ;D

Tina is doing very well. Her limp has gone and her wound, though still looking nasty, has started to heal, at least its stopped bleeding. She was much perkier yesterday. She hasn't gone back into the igloo which is a good sign, I think, as she is clearly relaxed enough to sit on the sofa or windowsill. She is eatting very well and pooing/peeling normally. I have made an appointment with the vet for this Saturday at 11:00 to check up on the wound and, hopefully, get the first vaccination done and the blood tests. I will have her microchipped and the second vaccination in three weeks time.

It appears she also likes macaroni cheese and is not shy about helping herself off my plate, cheeky girl :)

Great pictures Moira, thank you  :hug:

I do hope that wound heals quickly cos it was a huge chunk out of her tail.

She looks so wistful and am just so pleased she is safe inside because I dont think she would have lasted to now if she had been left outside and she knows that too.

Tina is ultra friendly. She cuddles on my lap and purrs a lot. Despite the pain she is in she has shown no sign of aggression. When she sits she cries a little as it obviously hurts her. Her wound is quite bad and deep and is still bleeding. I think it will be a few weeks before it heals. She still can't tolerate me touching her hind quarters and I have to just drip the saline solution onto the wound to wash it. On the good side, she coninues to eat well and is spending more time on the windowsill or sofa rather than hiding away in the igloo.

You are right, it will be very difficult for me to rehome her, I've never given up a cat before that has come into my care. I'm sure people will understand why I wont let her go until she is 100% better (however long that takes) reached her normal weight and has been checked for FIV/FeL. In Leicester CP do free neutering so I will have that done also before she goes (assuming she hasn't been speyed already. I guess she will come into heat over the next few weeks if she hasn't). I will pay myself to have her microchipped also (the new slaves can easily change the details).

Is Tina friendly? I know someone looking for a youngish cat. They want "everything done" though, which is the downside. Maybe I could talk them round on that..... ;)
