October 11, 2008
Catlover Pet Sitting has been in existence for about a year now. It's growing slowly some of that due to the economy and some due to my mostly wanting to concentrate on cats. There are still a lot of people out there who feel cats can be left alone with a couple of bowls of food and water. Here in RI there is an overabundance of "hobby" sitters who charge ridiculously low prices, are most probably not insured and may not be in business a couple of months from now. It's all a case of you get what you pay for.
Right now I'm working with a customer who rescued a momma cat and some kittens in her yard. After 3 of the kittens vanished overnight, she called me to come and get them and keep them safe until homes can be found. Three little tiger beauties, two boys and a girl. Momma is with them and all are doing well. This photo is the two boys. The white faced guy is definitely the ringleader of the trio!
My asthmatic foster cat Jonas has had a rough couple of days. He's back on prednisone and also needing his inhaler twice daily. Even with the treatment he's still a bit wheezy. If I remember correctly he was bad at this time last year. It must have something to do with mold and leaf fall at this time of year. Of course it's got to happen on the long holiday weekend when my regular vet is closed till Tuesday; if he's not better by tomorrow I may have to consider a trip to the emergency vet.
