Last Sunday was the angel date of my daughter. It was also the day one of my FHs friends called him about a kitten who wandered into his yard. Believe it or not, my FH asked me if we could help. With ten cats already in the house, I was a bit surprised. He never asked me to rescue a cat before. But I knew that if my daughter was still alive, she would plead this kittens plight (sorry, the apostrophe key will not Work) so I said yeah. Well as soon as I saw this adorable Little thing, I my heart sank. The kitten obviously as Manx syndrome and some serious health problems. I warned FH not to get too attached and immediately made arrangements to see the vet.
Surprisingly, the vet is more optimistic than me. She (we think) has proctitis, along with a host of other problems. She is requiring specialized care and luckily my best friend is coming over while I am work to give it to her when I am not home. She is on several medications and we are hoping for the best. She is about 8 weeks old. We named her Sasha.

I can’t decide if you’re a saint, or insane, for owning 10 cats LOL!
She’s super cute though and I hope she gets better!

Sasha also has a prolapsed rectum (vet put back in), and so she requires special cleansing several times a day. Her little butt is so sore – she cannot even sit directly on it. We try to be gentle as possible but it hurts her for us to clean it but we must do it. She also gets a bath daily and since Sunday we have gotten over a dozen ticks off of her! I hope we got them all now. We are hoping the antibiotics, special creams, the addition of pumpkin and probiotics to her food (recommended by the vet) will help. At least her excretory system seems to work OK and her appetite is good. We are looking forward to the day when we will see her playing! Prayers, purrs, and/or positive energy are much appreciated!

Guess what? Sasha is a BOY! Apparently during the first vet visit, it was though Sasha was a girl because HE has undescended testicles. The antibiotics are doing their work (we are on the second round now) but it appears he may have lingering digestive issues as he has a rather extreme degree of Manx syndrome (a genetic spinal deformity and NOT a breed). He is eating and playing very well, Here is a pic of him recuperating from vigorous play with the chirping birdie toy. We are keeping the name Sasha.
