    The vet only charged me for a re-check exam so it was $26.50. I also got them a slightly smaller litter box for the condo (Emma knocked theirs over and scared herself) and a blanket to go on top of their cardboard box, since that seems to be their new favorite spot. So that was $12.68 and they're well stocked up at $1081.15.
    I figured the lump might be that, but it is always best to check! Everything is sounding good for the girls!

    One of my All-Time Favorite PT pet stories had to do with the 'skin tag' found on the belly of a cat.


    After a tense wait and doctor's exam.......it turned out to be a nipple!

    Good news about the lump!!!!!

    And thanks again for your kindness!

    LOLOL Richard. I don't remember that one.

    My Speckles used to get that lump after vaccination. When she got to be about 12, I stopped giving them to her.

    Good news and thank you once again for all you are doing for these sweet babies. I so wish I could fly down there to see them.
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, champagne in one hand and strawberries in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming WOO HOO - What a Ride!

    I got two very sweet cards today, one of them had a note and a donation from Randi, the other was the second check from Mike, which Kelli was kind enough to pass along.

    We're at $1111.15 I'm almost out of canned food, which is what Dr. St. Germaine wants them eating primarily, so we'll get stocked up in a few days. They're starting to turn their noses up at Fancy Feast in favor of Merrick and Wellness Core....these girls have good taste!

    LOL! They deserve to be spoiled!

    I wonder if the vet will want some kibble in their diet, or dental treats, after the dental surgery to help keep their teeth clean.

    Hug those girls for me!

    Cathy, I'm happy you were on guard - I think it's best to be safer than sorry, any time.

    Glad you got Mike's $$ and my card. It sounds like the girls are doing well in your care - and it's good to hear about the potential new Mommy to the girls. Fingers crossed and prayers being said it's a good match.

    Thanks for all you are doing, Cathy!
    ...RIP, our sweet Gini...

    I'm still here lol - I worked over 50 hours this week, which means the girls are getting lots of attention but I haven't had much time to myself. Annie is starting to explore the pen more, and to demand pets from people other than myself. This evening one of my regulars was chatting with Annie, who was alternately hissing at her and begging for ear rubs. I was very confused by the exchange, but she was purring the entire time so I think she was enjoying herself....at any rate, she could have walked away from the petting and she didn't. 0.0 Such a character!

    Annie drools a TON when petted, and Emma does a little bit too! It's pretty funny and adorable, my knees are constantly damp from drooly kitties in my lap!

    WOW this story is amazing to read, one of the many reasons i have been on PT for over ten years, seeing the love from people here to help animals, it is truly fantastic. You were asking who Lisa is, i only know one Lisa here with a huge heart of gold and that would be KUHIO, i imagine it would be this lovely lady.

    It is wonderful to see these kitties together, i hope they will stay together and be in a very loving home.keep up the great work , you guys rock.

    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Eeeeeeeeeeeek, soooooo...dentals are underway right now, and I just got a phone call I was NOT happy to receive. Both girls have EXTENSIVE damage to their mouths due to feline orthodontic resorptive lesions....basically, their bodies are trying to re-absorb their teeth. This is EXCRUCIATINGLY painful, to the point where even cats who are anesthetized will get a spike in their blood pressure if a lesion is poked.

    So there's good news and bad news. The bad news, obviously, is that they've been in a lot of pain for a long time. Also, they will both have to have a LOT of teeth pulled and it's looking like it's going to be close to $2,000 per cat. I'm going to start a new thread once I get the total this evening and try to get some fund-raising suggestions from folks here. My hubby is unemployed, so today's bill is mostly going on the credit card and I'm just going to...uh...hope he doesn't notice!

    The GOOD news is that they will both feel a million times better after they recover!! Emma in particular has one tooth which is broken off at the gumline with the root exposed, and having that tooth removed will improve her quality of life immensely! Annie is having three canines removed as well as a few others, she's under as I type this so I'll update as soon as I know more.

    I'm torn between absolute elation and panic right now.

    Here is a good article about resorptive lesions: http://www.avds-online.org/info/felinelesions.html

    Here they are last night; I gave both of them lots of treats since I had to take their food away when I left for the evening.

    Snakemama, are they having their teeth extracted today? I was just wondering if there would be an opportunity to raise the funds before they have the procedure. If not ... well, I have not contributed to the Annie and Emma fund yet, so this would be a good opportunity !

    They are having them done today. The original estimate before the dental x-rays revealed all the hidden lesions was much smaller! I'll keep everyone posted, and I will start a new thread once they're home recovering.

    Annie is all done and waking up, and Emma is going under now!!
