Mancat Monday

Hi.  Iggy here.  I'm a new prisoner member of the Monkeys.


Although my new housemates are not particularly welcoming, I'm not really complaining.  I have to admit that this gig is far better than where I was before.

I used to live in a house with one human and 80 cats.  The human got sick and went to the hospital and asked a friend of hers to come feed us.  When the friend saw how many of us there were there, she called the SPCA to come take us away.  We were all over the news!  A lot of my housemates stayed here at the SPCA in Montreal, but I was hauled off to Gatineau (about 2 hours west) with some of my friends because they ran out of space.  Thankfully my new Mommy came and got me from there on Thursday.  She also changed my name from Grimlin to Iggy.  She can call me anything she wants as long as she keeps those scratches and belly rubs comin'!



Mommy had to take me to the vet yesterday because I haven't been eating right.  They gave me an appetite stimulant and some antibiotic cream for my eye (it's infected).  I also have to go back to the vet this week for tests.  We are all hoping that my low appetite is because of all the stress I've been through and not an underlying illness.

I know I've only just met you all, but I could really use your purrs.

Iggy

Welcome, Iggy!

Of course we're purring for you, hoping all is fine, that it's purely stress-related. You HAVE had a very stressful time of it, from a hoarding situation (very unhealthy), to a shelter, to your new home. That would throw anyone off.

Paws crossed and smooches from our mom!

Welcome, welcome, Iggy! You are jut too too cute. I'm sorry to hear about all the trials and tribulations of your life so far. Efurrything has just taken a major turn for the better, though.

The secret is just to get along with efurrybuddy. The girls can be kinda bossy, but if you let them have their way, it's smooth sailing.

Wishes you many, many belly rubs from hereon in -- and lots of treats, and TLC. I hope your health problems will soon be rectified, too. You're such a trooPURR!
