Our Dolls are Almost Ready for Forever Homes >^..^< >^..^ >^..^< >^..^<
Jezzie and the Pussycat Dolls underwent spay and neuter surgeries yesterday. It felt as if I had swallowed a bowling ball all day long waiting for the vet’s call to say that they were perfectly, well perfect. In other words, back to normal, minus their reproductive equipment of course.
On pickup, they received a lot of comments regarding their sweet temperament and adorable good looks. I think the vet techs all wanted to take one home with them but, alas, no such luck. Not today anyway. Nevertheless, I was SO proud of our babies that I’m sure to have beamed like the sun with pure delight when I saw those little whiskered faces again, peering out of their carriers at me!
Which brings me to the topic of this blog…. How am I ever going to say goodbye to our kittens when they leave us? Many of our LIVE CAM fans have expressed similar sadness at the revelation that the Pussycat Dolls; James, Jinx, Domino, and of course their stunning Mama, Jezzie-Belly, will not be with us much longer, making each day just a little bit sweeter. The community as a whole seems to have fallen as much in love with them as I have. I believe they sincerely want, to be absolutely direct, only the BEST for them. The best would entail having their own wonderful humans to love. Humans committed to protecting them, adoring them and providing a warm and inviting lap every single day of their hopefully long, happy lives. And perhaps, if dreams really do come true, they will even be invited onto the huge, soft human bed. A true nirvana for most kitties, or so my own cats tell me.
For now, the Dolls are REALLY happy to be home from the vet, foster or not. They played all night long. I know this because I couldn’t sleep without constantly checking on them. Who could have known that tipping the play towers on their sides would just create a whole new playground to explore? Silly us, we thought that we were discouraging the babies from overdoing it on their first night fresh off the surgery table. I suppose the concept was at least sound in that it kept them closer to the ground and reduced any vertical stretching and pulling that might upset their stitches. Those who watched their initial, seemingly drunken behavior… tossing food across the room, using their water bowl as a kiddie pool, falling all over each other and hanging upside down from their new playground surely enjoyed a hilarious show. Like I said, what am I going to do without my daily kitten fix? Doomed, I am, surely?
My next post will be about the incredible grace exhibited by our Mama, Jezzie-Belly. She’s been in that playroom for over three months and remained the Madonna of motherhood, patience and affection throughout. Sadly, she’s taking much longer to recover and exhibiting more post-surgery pain than her babies. Yet, she greets me with the grace of a queen each time we visit. I only wish I had that kind of inner beauty. Stay tuned for the final days of Jezzie’s story. Please don’t forget to like the Towncats Facebook Page and support them in any way you can, even if you are unable to adopt one of our kittens or make a small donation. They do great work and Jezzie’s brood is just one of MANY examples. Every thumbs up helps them get noticed and do even more good work. In fact, none of this would have been possible without them. Also, stay tuned to see how things turn out for Jezzie and the Dolls on the Kitty Cat Cam Live Webcam. They really appreciate your support, and so do we!
