I'm officially in the process of adopting sweet Ida Mae, who has been living with me as a foster since September. I love this cat SO MUCH and I'm really excited to adopt her into my family! Here are some pictures to illustrate how far she has come in the past nine months. When she came to me she had a vicious mouth infection and had to have all of her teeth removed. Because her mouth had been in so much pain, she hadn't been eating, drinking, or grooming herself properly. She was so scrawny and her coat was a mess. But now her mouth has healed up and her coat is thick and shiny and she has gained a couple pounds and she is so playful and sweet and happy. What a difference!

Thanks everyone! Hopefully the adoption will be finalized by next week. I just received her vet records today and have been bummed about how sad it is. She only weighed 5.5 pounds when she was rescued and her file is filled with phrases like "severe inflammation", "raised ulcerated masses", and "bloody drool". I hate to think of her that way and how miserable she must have been. Poor thing. I knew it all already… but it's sad to see it all in writing. I'm trying to just focus on the good-- that she's happy and healthy now. I just don't know how her former family could have let that happen to her. Oof.

Takecare, it was similar with our macaw. At the second vet check 9 months later, the vet couldn't believe it was the same bird.

My phone camera is terrible, but Hester hates photos so I have to take them with whatever when I get the chance. Since adopting her last September, she has become really attached to me, but is still pretty scared of almost everyone else. It's taken a long time for her to warm up to me, even, and it's only been recently that she'll sit on my lap and also allow me to pick her up for longer than maybe 30 seconds at a time.

Now that it's winter, she's become a sooky winter lapcat.

Image

She's my baby! She doesn't normally sit like that, but she was weirdly enjoying it that evening. She likes to knead the air with her front paws when I rub her belly.

Messy beak! She is earring fried zucchini blossoms stuffed with Vcon cashew ricotta. I don't really want to share, but who can refuse that little face?

Image

Less cute is what she wiped her beak on before I could catch her with a napkin (my physics work).

I'm hogging the thread today. This photo cracks me up. I caught her mid blink.

Image

Molly is "helping" me study. She always steals the orange pen even if she has to grab it from me while I'm using it.

I think this is her "mom, you've taken enough photos today" look:

We had a bird that looked like Molly at work today! Someone found him on their porch last night. He was the cutest thing! He ate some apple chunks, bit all of us, and then went to sleep.

Image

I was able to track his leg band back to his breeder, and they contacted his family. Apparently he had been scheduled for a wing clip this week, and I think he must have known that and plotted a way to escape. He opened the door to his cage and flew out the front door just as it was being opened. He spent two days on the lam before he was captured. His family was so happy to get him back!

Yeah, that's a green cheek all right.


I'm so glad it's a happy ending. I can't even imagine. I had Molly's band removed. It bugged me that she had some ownership manacle on or something.

Oh Mady! And Molly!

I love when cats do that thing where they stick their tongue out just a little bit. It's so adorably silly looking.

This is Juta. She was dumped at a local dog shelter in May, thrown out of a moving car with 4 others. Two ran away, one was hit by a car (but making a recovery) and two were caught safely. She was very weak and had tick fever so a friend fostered her while she was recovering. Friend went on holiday at the beginning of July and asked us to 'look after her' for a week. We didn't really think we were ready for another dog after our beautiful Uller (another rescue pup we had had for 16 years) died in March, but boring story even more boring, Juta stayed. We realised that our home is happier with a dog in it.

Now to see if the photo works...

That's one of the PPK filters. I think it's for l-ong-s-tory-s-hort (without the hyphens, obviously). The more you post, you more you'll discover funny little easter eggy filters. Part of the fun of the PPK!

Juta's story (and that of the other dogs she was with) is so heartbreaking. I'm so glad she's found a happy home with you! She's beautiful!
