Litter Box Cleanings

The litter boxes should be dumped and totally and fully cleaned the first seven days of the month, alternating AM shifts and PM shifts per month. April was done by the PM shifts, May will be the AM shifts, and June will be the PM shifts again. Be sure to dump and clean them and sign the signature sheet on the med door after completing. This is very important!

One pee blanket, one undigested food vomit blanket, and a good amount of pee spots. Food nearly all gone so added 6 scoops and some to Eloise’s bowl too. Ginger ate all her food with gabapentin. Good shift overall, except for Shiloh getting spooked as I was finishing up, falling off the bench and into the water bowl, spilling it all over the front of the room. Pretty… Read more »

Hey y’all!! We could use some more behind the scenes help with CAAWS if you’re interested! We need help with keeping up with our animals on the website (WordPress, no html knowledge needed), sorting and answering emails, and help on the phones (about one week a month, an hour a day). Pleas, email me at kelly.caaws@gmail.com, or text 225-324-8903. Thanks!

Dropped off Eloise at the shelter. She has been a great foster cat!
She is in iso for now, she eats main room food. The way to her heart is through brushes and chin scratches. Also she loves string toys.

Calm shift at first and then things got more animated. There was one pee blanket and one puke blanket. I added 1 cup of food with lysine. Ginger ate half a can of food with one Gabapentin crushed up in it.
She thanked me by peeing on my earbuds. Her pee looks less red. Gilligan got so worked up on catnip he fell off the shelf. Camille decided to sit in the blue chair even though there was some pee still on it. Good shift overall!

Got more gabapentin for Ginger! It’s in a pill form now so the dosage is accurate. Crush it with the morter and pestle and mix into food.
