TL;DR Not Pip.
Saw some roadkill not far from us yesterday, had obviously been there a few days and was unidentifiable but probably a cat. Took it to the vet who was pretty confident there was no chip. So almost certainly not Pip but I still gave it a decent burial.

😍 The kitten who was found injured, with almost no blood left in his body, with paralysed legs - is in excellent shape now and growing fast. Here he is playing happily with his new young adult brother McCoy (also a rescue).
(Kitten Chekhov is on the right - not yet five months old but already almost as big as an adult.)
The two like to play-wrestle and to chase each other around the house.

Update about the rescued kitten: 😍 The little boy has made a full recovery. You wouldn't believe that this is the same kitten that was found half-dead from injuries, with almost no blood left in his ice-cold body.
He's now warm, safe, healthy, playful & happy. He has even regained full movement in his paralysed legs.
He's still shy and often hides, but enjoys cuddles and gets on well with my other cats.

#SlowCatIntro UpDate Day 4: I visited with Betty from my side of the door. I sniffed her & loafed by the door for awhile. Neither of us got hissy. Mom played with me, then I hopped up to my China Cabinet platform to nap. Success!
S L O W intro process going well. Calm, no tension is good. We'll keep the door shut between us while continuing our dinner at the door routine all week. #CatsOfMastodon #AdoptDontShop #RescueCats #SaveThemAll #TuxieCat

A poop and blood test suggest this might just be a bacterial tummy bug (bacteria found in poop, but blood tests look strong). Dinah’s had a shot of antibiotics, subcutaneous fluids and an anti-vomit medication. We trudged home through the rain and she’s just eaten a good lunch! So I’m hoping we’re on the mend. #OhDinah #RescueCats #CatsOfMastodon

Poor Dinah and I are off to the vet today, as Dinah spent the night vomiting ☹️

On a… possibly related… note: any recommendations for tatami cleaner?

A year ago this week we rescued four tiny kittens from a bin.
This week two more were rescued - again from a bin.
What is wrong with these people?! (If I caught them it would be a massive head wound at the very least...)

I've updated my foster kitten donation wishlist for May -- it's KITTEN SEASON! 😭😭😭 It's been a tsunami the past couple weeks. I still have a few older kittens looking for homes, and now I have this sweet mamacat and her four 4-week-old kittens we pulled from a full shelter, so I've added a few more age-appropriate things to the list this month. Donations from the community here have helped so much, THANK YOU! #FosterKittens #CatsOfMastodon #MutualAid #RescueCats

We’re attempting to look remorseful. But we’ve just puked off the top of the cat tree on the catio 🤦🏼‍♀️ Portable spray washer was engaged that has partially cleaned up the mess. Hoping a rain storm does the rest. #NorahNeko #RescueCats #CatsOfMastodon

A plaintive meow from Dinah’s bed suggested she wanted to come out but wasn’t prepared to do so while I was in the room.

I’ve thus been driven to bed in my own home! (The consequences of refusing to budge might be a wet cat bed 😐)

Is Dinah secretly employed by my mother? Questions abound 🧐 #OhDinah #RescueCats

This week, I am looking after this fine senior lady. Yanko is another rescue cat from the Japan Cat Network. Her regular foster mum has gone on holiday, so I have filled my house with cats! No one is thrilled by this, but as they’re all talk and no action, we’re muddling along OK 😺😺😺 Yanko is generally a sleepy old girl, but is capable of letting rip the most blood curdling yowls for no obvious reason. Neighbours may yet call child protective services 🤦🏼‍♀️ #rescuecats #catsofmastodon

perfectly perched on a fluffy white bean bag is a smoosh faced yellow and white super fluffy 5 pound unicorn cat with yellow eyes and a freckled nose.

my favourite pic i've taken of Tinycat - she's come so far since the day she was rescued. when i come to visit she even lets me pet her belly without biting me. she just squints her eyes & purrs. and that's love, man.

Mimi is a former feral who is very timid. but she also loves pets more than anything in the world. so once you've earned her trust, & she feels safe enough, she will come up for headbutts, roly-polies, & so much purring.

I just found these old photos of Pebbles from 6 years ago, when we'd first adopted her, and I love the progression from the first night (spent mostly hiding in a desk drawer) to the second afternoon and then the final phase of ruling the house (by Day 4). :)

Spent the afternoon with a cool person doing cool (and important things) in a level-set interview for an upcoming article We hung out at The Grove in Kitchener.

Turns out the cafe is part of the KW Humane Society's Pastry Path campaign! Proceeds from that huge cookie went towards the KW and Stratford HS!
