Update on our special boy “Dave” :-(

Update on “Our Special Boy Dave”  Dave is not very well, bless him, I went to give him his medicine at 8pm as usual last night and he was just coming out of a fit (he had not had one since February) he was in a bit of a state so left him to come completely out of it before giving him his meds, I sorted the rest of the rescues out and went back to his pen “Daves Gaff” he was sitting up with very wide eyes and drooling a lot, as I went to go in he started to go into another fit, a very bad one and was thrashing around in his pen where as when he normally has a fit he lays on his side and just paddles, I knew this was a serious fit by the amount of saliva on the floor, I rang our out of hours vet to warn them I was on my way with Dave and through a towel over him to get him in the cat carrier, we arrived at approx 8.45pm, I held Dave while the vet gave him a rectal diazapan, he still did not come out of the fit, so approx 10 mins later he had another, still he was not right so he had to stay in the vets last night, this morning was a little better but still wide eyed and still salivating, he is back with me now but have to keep a close eye on him, he is booked in Monday at the vets for full bloods but if he has another fit in between he will have to go straight back, he certainly isn’t his normal self, Dave is more like a dog than a cat, a very laid back gentle little boy. I will keep everyone updated, the picture of Dave trying to climb the tree was the last time he went out on his harness and lead and the one on his side was when he was in full fit the other two were taken at the vets this morning. Come on Dave you can get right lovely boy :-)

Our Dave goes to Nursery :-)

Stables Stables 1 Stables 2

Our Dave and I got invited to go to Stables Day Care Nursery in Wem on the 10th March, the children all sat in a circle and were amazed at Dave with his harness on, Dave went around all there feet smelling (each to his own haha) and rubbing against them, he really enjoyed it as I did and so did the children, they were all so well behaved for such a young age. Sorry no pictures at present but we are awaiting permission from parents. A great day had by all :-) Sorry not brilliant pictures:-(

Update on Dave :-)

Dave is doing very well, he has had his yearly MOT and vaccinations and also had his nails clipped, he is still going around the garden when it’s not raining but this time of year as it’s so cold he spends most of his time in his heated sleeping area and in his heated igloo and who can blame him :-) We have just had another rescue pen built and attached it to “Dave’s Gaff” so they have a shared safety area, there are 4 kittens in the new pen at the moment and Dave loves to see the other cats :-)

Dave has 2nd visit to School 7/4/14

Dave has been back to school today for the second time, they had invited people to tell the Year1 pupils at St Peters School Wem about there jobs, myself, Barbara and of course Dave went along to give a talk, I went in my uniform as I work part time at our local vets Bridgefield Vets in Wem as well as running the rescue and Barbara is one of my brilliant volunteers. All went very well and Dave loved the attention and fuss although I think he has put a bit of weight on over the winter and will have to get him a new harness as it only just did up!! The children were amazing, so good and well behaved, I think everyone had a great morning. Thank you St Peters Wem for inviting us :-)

Update on Dave 30/3/14

Dave has been able to return to his “Gaff” and as a reward for giving up his pen to the 8 emergency’s he has a new scratch post and loves it, I think he’s quite happy to be back in his new home and wont be long until he is back into his regular walks around the garden 

Update on Dave 21/2/14

Dave has yet again had to give up his pen to an emergency intake of 9 cats from Telford, the council told the owner she must re-home 9 of her 12 cats, we took in 8 as she managed to re-home one but one was heavily pregnant and gave birth on 5th Feb, Dave moved out of his pen on 25th Jan 2014 and as no interest in the 5 we have left in there he is still in a normal rescue pen, he was a bit disgruntled to begin with but has settled well and think he likes the company of the other cats either side of him, hopefully it won’t be long before he can go back into his pen, as a treat for him giving up his pen to help his fellow felines we have a nice new lrg scratch post for him when he goes back, he is such a good lad and we all love him :-)  

Update on Dave 12/11/13

Dave bless him has had his booster and blood test and passed with flying colours, his blood test showed he is on the right dosage of medication and also had a thorough health check while having his booster jabs, his breathing is fine still so we will just wait for next summer to see what happens, during the winter months Dave does not go out for walks around the garden as too cold and wet, I bet he can’t wait for spring/summer but then thinking about it niether can I haha

Latest update on Dave

alt

Dave’s breathing has been very noisy of late, this happened about a year ago but x rays showed nothing abnormal.  I took him back to the vets as he sounded like he was struggling to breath, poor lad, they now think he is suffering with Asthma and allergy related (like hayfever to us) he had a steriod jab that should of lasted 24hrs but unfortunately it didn’t and during the night the stress of him not being able to breath made him have a fit, I took him back to the vets the next day and they gave him a longer lasting steriod jab which seems to have done the trick, looks like in the summer months Dave will need steriod injections to keep his hayfever at bay.  He is due his yearly booster vaccination very soon and we will also have a blood test done to make sure he is still on the right dosage for his epilepsy medication. He is such a lovely boy, watch this space!!
