A better day for the animals

Much to my surprise, Rowley dog is having a better day. He ate his breakfast, got up on his own three times, and even greeted Michael and Santa at the door when they brought Uru, our new foster cat. I hope this is the beginning of an improvement for him.

Our foster, Uru, is the sweetest thing! She is very small, all black with green eyes, and just wants to be loved and petted. She is by herself for now, since she was sick and hasn’t had her vaccinations yet. She seems to be enjoying the peace and quiet. Today, we took a little nap, and she just wanted to purr and cuddle!

Cats are difficult to photograph-they keep moving!

Now that her sores are almost healed, hopefully her fur will fill in, too.  She had a terrible flea allergy, and was living in a house with more than 10 other cats and several dogs, all infested with fleas! She will be available for adoption soon, too, and would be a wonderful pet!

she's much cuter than this picture suggests

The other cats don’t seem to know she is here, although they were curious when I set up the second litter box and food.

Mr Cookie has spent most of today doing just this - sleeping. If he knows there is another cat around, he doesn't seem to care!

Chippy then proceded to eat Uru’s food before she arrived! I hope to introduce them once Uru is vaccinated and ready for adoption.

Chippy seems perfectly relaxed

So today has been a better day, so far. Here’s to hoping Rowley dog continues to improve. Hopefully he still has a few good years left. And here’s to a second chance for Uru – thanks to the good people at PFL, she has a chance at a forever home!
