Titos' Socks

Hola Y'all!!!

We're still waiting to hear about the weekly prize. Sure hope we win it!! Just in case we didn't though, KEEP ON VOTING PLEASE!!
Just go to www.animalrescuesite.com and click on the "shelter challenge" tab. Choose Costa Rica for the country, click search and that should bring up our name. Click "vote" and then type in the letters and numbers that appear to confirm your vote.

Mom bought some baby pajamas for Tito, to try to jeep his foot bandages from coming off, but they were too small. She also bought some baby socks so that is what he's wearing now over his foot bandages. Say a prayer that they stay on and keep him from scratching his neck.

She decided to try the baby pajamas on Milana. They were a little tight though so Milana was not real happy about them. But she looked really cute in them though!! WMFWB!! (waggin' my fuzzy white butt)

Our volunteer, Mary, is spending the night with us tonight!! Storm is getting to sleep with her!! Did we tell you Storm has decided to adopt Mary and will be going back to the states with her? We're all THRILLED and Marys' mom and dad are real happy too!! They can't wait to meet Storm!!

Please keep voting and please say some prayers for Tito. We're doin' the best we can!!!

Tito the cat

We still don't know if we won the weekly so KEEP ON VOTING PLEASE!!! Just go to www.animalrescuesite.com and click on the "shelter challenge" tab. Choose Costa Rica for the country, click search and that should bring up our name. Click "vote" and then type in the letters and numbers that appear to confirm your vote.

Last night Tito had both back feet AND his neck bandaged. This morning he still had on the feet bandages but his neck bandage was off all except for the tape.???
We don't know how he did that but at least the wound was not savaged again. Mom and Dad just medicated it and left the neck bandage off so it can get some air and we'll have to check on him every few minutes, all day, to make sure he hasn't gotten one of the foot bandages off. It only takes him seconds to tear his neck up when he starts scratching it.
Y'all say some prayers and send healing thoughts please.

Tito the cat

Mom is really upset today. Tito got one of his foot bandages off last night and tore his neck open again. It's a holiday here so all the vets are closed.

He came into the shelter with a horrible neck injury from something that had embedded itself into his neck. Mom has photos but they're pretty gross.

We doctored him for about a month and he was healing real nice. Then the vet told us to stop the honey bandages we were using and let the wound form a scab. To allow the neck to get some air we had to leave the bandage off.

Tito started scratching at his neck and ripped open the wound. We had to do the honey bandages again for a couple of days and then Mom put bandages on his back paws so he could not scratch at his neck.

That worked for a couple of days and then he happened to get one of the foot bandages off and did it again.

Mom says she just doesn't know what else to do. She's tried everything and he still manages to mess it up again. He's been here over a month and we've used up LOYS of medical supplies on him. When he does this it just breaks Mom and Dads hearts. They want him to heal.
Not to mention he's breaking our shelter account.

Y'all say some prayers and send healing thoughts for him ok?


Just a quick update

Our volunteers were here yesterday and worked with Storm and Honey on their manners!!! They're both learning real quick and the volunteers are doing GREAT jobs!!

Me and Mom and Dad went to the big store yesterday to buy beer and wine for tonights spaghetti dinner at Aunt Kays!! If you live in Costa Rica be sure to be there!! It starts at 5:00 and Mom and Dad will be selling the beer and wine to raise money for the shelter.

Tito, the neck injury cat, is doing good. He got checked by the vet on Thursday and she is very happy with the way he is healing. He finally kicked off his "boots" last night and so far he is not scratching at his neck. Mom is letting him run loose in the clinic all the time now cause he's been cooped up for so long.

Milana, the four and a half pound pom filed a complaint with Mom yesterday. Don't miss the video!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXRlFeIiHvc

Gotta go!! Our volunteers are coming again today. You guys are SOOO super!!!! Please keep voting and forwarding/sharing these reminders.

WE WON THE LAST SHELTER CHALLENGE!! It was a miracle!! We were in 2nd place the whole time but the 1st place shelter won a weekly vote and that
disqualified them from winning the 1st place prize!! Both awards are $1,000.00 so they did alright too!!! YAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!!

BINGO GOT ADOPTED!!! He's gone to live in the US and will be neighbors with Paco!!! They'll get to see each other now and then!! Is that great or what!!!

We've had some fantastic volunteers last month and they're coming back again tomorrow!! We'll all get baths!! And Bingos new mom and dad, Jessica and Evan, are both vet techs in the states and they did all kinds of stuff to us while they were here!!! Cleaned our ears real good, cleaned our anal glands, trimmed our toenails, and helped Mom with doctoring the cat who has the neck injury. It's been a great June!!

We're posting some photos of the new kid that came in yesterday. Mom named her Honey. She was thrown out of a car window. The man tossed her out and drove away. She ran back out to the middle of the street and watched as he drove away leaving her behind. A really nice woman saw it happen and stopped. She got Honey and brought her to her vet. The vet called Mom and Mom brought Honey home.
Honey had been starved for quite some time. She is doing really good though since she is getting good food, clean water and lovin' from Mom and Dad. She's a real sweetheart and loves everybody. We think she might have had puppies recently and since she has no milk we are guessing they probably didn't survive.

Another shelter challenge has started so please vote for us!! The grants we have won have helped to keep our shelter doors open!!
Just go to www.animalrescuesite.com and click on the "shelter challenge" tab. Choose Costa Rica for the country and that should bring up our name. Click "vote" and then type in the letters and numbers that appear to confirm your vote.
