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!

Litter scooped, water changed, and 3 scoops of food added. When I came in, magnolia was on the bottom self and even got down on the floor by herself for a treat! Progress! Everyone seems to be getting along with sickle as well. Maisie did throw up some food before we left, but seemed to be fine after. Played with the feather toy and sprayed some catnip for everyone. Good shift!

Monday PM – quick scoop and feed for Memorial Day. Magnolia was on the 2nd shelf when I got there and took her meds easily. Cyrus got very near her face a couple of times and she had no reaction. Sickle had no scuffs or verbal altercations with anyone while I was there either.

Sunday AM. Great shift. Everyone was very sleepy and relaxed. Cyrus played with a tennis ball. Creamsicle was relaxed and doing well. I sprayed cat nip on some of the shelves and it coaxed magnolia down for a while to explore.

Creamsicle can come out of iso now. He has a lot of energy and is very quick to start shit with everyone. Keep a close eye on him. He’ll probably need multiple breaks either back in iso or the room cage when he’s been too much of a butt.

Gave magnolia her pill and gave her and the rest of the kitties treats after. She was a lot more cooperative today. Scooped the litter and swept the floors, food and water levels all looked good so I didn’t add anything. Played with all the kitties with the wand toy for a bit. Creamsicle was extremely energetic and affectionate and tried to bolt every time I opened the iso door

Friday Am The room was still pretty clean this morning. We got all chores done & added the a few scoops with the lysine. Creamsicle, was very interested in what was going on outside of iso. Every time Cyrus passed he would paw at the door & at one point when I went into the room he dashed around me & out of iso (I got him back in before any of the other cats could mess with him). He is very curious & playful! Magnolia is still on the top shelf but was almost tempted to come down when… Read more »

Chores done Lysoled and brought in the cat tree by the door, put the grates back on the big cage Creamsicles left eye looked watery. It’s also very warm in iso We’re not sure if Shiloh is coming down from her tree. She’s been in the same spot since I saw her last night and did not move today at all. We moved her tree closer to the counter and set out a food and water and litter box for her just in case, as she seems very scared to come down. When we gave her food in her tree… Read more »

Monday – PM – Creamsicle is a sweetie. Wanted to come out so bad and actually bolted out of the room for a few minutes before I could put him back in ISO. Maise and Gilly didn’t like him coming out. Maggie gave me a really hard time taking her pill but she took it. 1 pee blanket, vomit on the floor near the mop bucket, and about 3-4 pee spots near the cabinets. Water buckets were cleaned and refilled including Maggie’s. About 4 cups of food with lysine. Swept and mopped and all kitties got pets and treats.

The iso door was open and Creamsicle was hanging out in the main room. He seemed to be doing fine and was very relaxed. Shilo was in the iso room. I put Creamsicle back in iso and he didn’t care for that too much.

Can tomorrow’s shift rinse them off and lean against the brick outside to dry? Please and thank you! New cat in iso!! His name is Creamsicle. He’s about 7 months old. He’s very sweet but a little confused about having to be inside. He cannot come out into the room yet. Shiloh is in the bottom of the cat tree by iso door. Everyone… Read more »

All chores done! There was a couple spots of vomit (I think) near one of the water bowls. Shiloh did not come out but was very affectionate this morning. Milo and Cyrus got in a little scuffle, everyone fine upon leaving. Had to change out one of Magnolia’s blankets, she missed her bucket up in the corner

Plenty of food in all bowls. Magnolia took her pill. Everyone got treats. Milo threw up a couple times, but it may be because he got too many treats, whoops. Shiloh did not want to come out and when I left the door open, she ran up top bc Cyrus & Milo ran at her. Sat and gave her some extra love in ISO. All chores done.

One pee blanket. Magnolia took her medicine. She took a very big poop immediately after scooping her box. Shiloh was crying at iso door but when I opened it she was not interested. Left it open and she stayed in iso and was kinda okay with the others visiting. Start opening iso on shift and encourage her to come out, then put her up when your done.

Got all the chores done and gave Maggie her pill. Found 1 pee blanket and put it in the laundry. Added 3 cups of food and lysine and refreshed the water bowls. All cats seemed good, though magnolia was angrier than usual when I gave her her medicine. Shiloh was very friendly and loving today. She seemed curious about venturing out of ISO but then got upset when Cyrus kept trying to get in.

All chores done, including trash taken out! Business as usual this morning.. Cyrus running around like a wild man and Magnolia is still up on her perch looking like someone just stole her purse. Shiloh acted like she wanted to come out, but seems cautious around Cyrus. Stayed to play with everyone for a bit, all in good spirits upon leaving

Then she hid on top the ISO cages. Milo, Cyrus and Gilly played with the feather on a stick toy for a bit at the end of shift. Maggie even played with it from the top shelf a couple times.
