Meet Sinatra ...
This little fur baby has kept me hopping this past week. He is the newest member of our household. Sinatra is going to join the "girls" in the house. Right now he has his own room until he gets well and has those front claws taken care of! I have several scratches on me from medicating him ... little stinker :) He would have an unfair advantage over the "girls" in the house with those claws. He needs to regain his energy and doesn't need to be too active.
Last summer he appeared from beneath our deck steps. He was a tiny little thing and adorable. Of course I instantly fell in love with him. I begged my husband to let me bring him in the house but he kept telling me we didn't need another cat in the house. We have two "girls" that are so funny! (Hubby was never a cat person until we had one)
It wasn't long before Sinatra had won my hubby's heart .. in fact he named him Sinatra.
We had him neutered when he was old enough and to keep him safe at night I would keep him on our screen porch.
Last week I noticed he wasn't very playful and didn't have the energy he normally had. On Thursday morning I knew when we let him out for the day something was wrong. We immediately took him to the vet. He was tested and was severely anemic. He was a very sick little fellow. He needed a blood transfusion. Once he was treated, given meds and stayed overnight at the vet's office he is on the mend. He is getting all his energy back!
And he is now a full time house cat! Yep ...my husband gave in and has helped me take really good care of our newest fur baby :)
I love my pets and how can I not with those eyes? We are keeping him in our only room that is a "formal" room with all my "pretties" and he hasn't bothered a thing ... so far. I even covered my white chairs with old sheets. Hopefully soon he can roam the house and meet his sisters.
Now I am off to give some more meds and give a belly rub :)
Thanks for visiting!
