Buddy is nibbling dry food but not eating enough to 
maintain his body weight so still tube feeding him some. 


Today's cat is Fred

Fred is both blind & FIV+.   He came to us from the local animal control
facility.  The day after he arrived he was running a 106 temperature
and had broken out with one heck of a bad upper respiratory infection.
Thank goodness for feeding tubes and antibiotics!
He has actually had 2 feeding tubes in his 3 years with us.
He is a super friendly fellow, loves sleeping with the other cats.

You may see Fred & his roommates today LIVE
on http://ustream.tv/blindcatrescue

Julia and I played hooky yesterday and went to the Wilmington for the day.  I figured she needed to at least see more than the farm while she was in the US.  Thanks for letting me 
use your photos Julia!


Lock 1 on the Cape Fear River.  You can ride 130 miles down the river from
Fayetteville to the ocean by boat if you wanted to


Julia,  the waves were really strong


Lots of sea gulls,  the kids were throwing them popcorn



Snake at the aquarium 

at the aquarium

An albino alligator,  very rare 

We were able to actually pet the rays.

In the butterfly house,  it was so full of butterflies, really cool!


beautiful butterflies on the flowers



Turtles hanging out

A marker showing you storm surge height for some hurricanes.
The stick was 25 feet tall,  Really gives you a good idea how bad it can be.


On the river.  A huge boat coming under the bridge.  This bridge
lifts straight up by hydraulics instead of opening up in the middle.
Once the boat cleared, it lowers back down.  Bet the cars on the bridge were not happy,
it took about 10 minutes to clear under the bridge.

Tug boat,  Those boats are amazing how fast they can move

Pelican on the water.  Because the area that we were in is only 30 miles from the ocean it is also salt water
so there are actually dolphins and lots of pelicans.

A pictures of a house taken from the boat.
Wouldn't you like to have that view from your back door?


Buddy Report

Buddy is still not eating,  he still has a feeding tube.  He does not act like
he is in any pain.  If we do not see improvement by Monday he will go back to the vet



We WILL do boxes and chat tonight LIVE on http://ustream.tv/blindcatrescue
Chat at 6,  Boxes at 6:30 pm EST

Buddy Report

I picked Buddy up first thing in the morning and we headed to Raleigh for him to see a specialist.  We needed to find out what this mass was that was pushing down his organs on the X-rays.   5 hours in Raleigh,  blood work, x-ray and ultra sound later showed the mass was not a tumor (thank goodness!) but actually the internist felt it was a glob of fat.  (Too bad we can't just take it out with liposuction)  Blood work is perfect right down the middle,  x-rays do not show anything else out of the ordinary... all tests actually show him to be a pretty healthy cat  EXCEPT he is not eating.   We have no idea why.    He has a feeding tube, and boy he is not happy being in a crate at all.    We hope he will decide to start eating again soon.
