I'm going quiet until Monday. Things have gone a bit nuts. Before I give you the details, just know that everyone is okay (or will be okay shortly).
A wave of serious upper respiratory swept through our rescue's facility at Petco. We've got some pretty seriously ill kittens on our hands, including Henry :-(
He has a pretty high fever and is at the vet's office for the next 24 hours for medication and rehydration. When he is okay to be released, he is coming home to me for the duration of the healing process... along with Tika and Abby (who will be spayed in the morning if their fevers are down and their conditions are under control before coming to our house). They will be moving into the family room when they arrive.
Good thing my husband is gone, as he wants fewer kittens and not more in the house. There will be fewer on Saturday morning... five fewer to be exact. Petco is being bleached and sterilized daily between now and Saturday when the Adams kittens will move in during adoption hours. (Of course, this is dependent on everything being healthy and ready for them... which we are anticipating will be done. I will not leave them if there's a doubt... promise!)
We've re-shifted the Jeffersons back to the upstairs bathroom. It's just easier to work around the bigger numbers with them up there for now. They will get possession of the foster room when the Adams leave for Petco.
I'll take lots of pictures in the meantime, but I need the rest of my time/strength/sanity to deal with my kids' schedules and sick kittens. If there is news to be shared, I will do so on the Facebook page and in updates at the end of this post.
I plan to be back on Monday with a super-size edition to get you back up to speed.
PS--- R-word results remain negative until we hear differently (which I do not expect at this point). F-word situation is much improved. Kittens show no signs. Big guys received Capstar and I've vacuumed/sprayed/laundered the bejeebers out of our surroundings for the past two days. If they're not gone, they will be soon. :-)
PPS--- I've been promised a major break when the dust settles (and only the Jeffersons here after Henry and the girls are healthy). So this is just a ten day push to make sure my baby has a place to heal. It's worth it to make sure he is okay.
