Surprisingly, no new pics of the kitten. We joked about naming her Suri, and ensuring there's no photos of her for the media until WE'RE ready! Oh, and until we're paid millions of dollars! ;-)
Took her to the vet this morning (yes, she's a "her"). Was nervous - didn't want bad news. Turns out she tested negative for both feline leukemia and worms. They treated her with a quarter of a worm pill (she only weighed 1lb 4oz!), and gave her a flea treatment as well. They noticed a number of abrasions, one of which might've caused an absess in the foot, hence the swelling. She's on painkillers for that (4 days worth - TINY little droplets of painkillers!), and 2wks of antibiotics (to also help with eye goo/upper respiratory, other owies, etc).
She was QUITE popular at the vet's office, and I became quite the hero when people found out we stopped out on the major highway to rescue this 6wk old frail little thing. And, of course, when she has "No Name" on the paperwork, more names were suggested - lol! Since it's a girl, we're having a hard time nailing down a name we're both happy with. It was the same with Tucker, but girls are harder to name I think.
After leaving the vet's office I decided I was already half way to the garden, so we drove out there, enjoying the sunshine and fresh air. I think she liked the comfort of the towels in the cage but still getting fresh wind... I made sure she was in the shade with the windows down and spent maybe 10-15 min picking the first peppers (Gypsy), the first beans (Blue Lake), a BIG yellow 8-ball squash, some other squash and some snow peas. Over 6lbs total of squash today - although that 8-ball was more than 2lbs on it's own!
Came home. Gaver her her first antibiotic dose of the day, and played with her a bit. She's still real timid, and Notch being a big ol' hissy crank isn't helping. Tucker mostly just frowns at her. And boy does HE, our "baby", seem SO BIG now!
Had lunch of ramen with sliced chicken, sliced squashes, swiss chard, bok choy and snow peas in it - good combo! Played with the cats more. Took the boys outside and let them enoy the fresh air and sun (oy - HOT!). Tucker's LOVING picking unripe cherry tomatoes up by the stem (or sometimes the whole thing in his mouth) and walking them back after I throw them for him - weird, hunh!? I laid out in the sun for a bit as well...
Came in, got some reading done, played with the cats, Brett came home, and then I let the kitten fall asleep on my chest while we watched a little tv. Then Tucker, not knowing she was there, curled up between my legs. Brett ended out going to get us dinner! Once Tucker realized she was there, I think he felt betrayed....
That's about it for the daily report!
