We have Mittens back in the house. This time we're trying to get her back on speaking terms with her brothers. After we fostered her and her sick eye, the sibs couldn't be in the same cage anymore. "You smell different! I don't know you!" Then she got depressed because she was in a cage all alone.
Plus they all needed a cage break so they're all here in one bathroom! Looks like they got the hissing out of their system yesterday. No snuggling though.
But what's this on her brother? A circular small bald spot the size of a pencil eraser.
"Um, Jo...does this look like ringworm to you?" She came over to check and the black light says no but she said there WAS a cat with ringworm last week but they removed it and it was on a different level cage than these cats but she's suspicious and brought me the ringworm cream. Oh these street urchins! It's never a good day for them until they're in their forever homes, poor things. So much stress all the time.
And so we asked Jo where all the kittens are and she said that even the local shelter mentioned that it's a slow start to kitten season this year. They think it's because the TNR and free spay/neuter days are working.
