Would ya'll be surprised if I told you that we have another cat? Scott found this tiny, malnourished, pitiful soul in the parking lot at work last week:
She's approx. 7 - 8 weeks old and weights 1 1/2 pounds. She had fleas (of course) and probably worms. Dr. Patti treated her for both.
She had another issue as well and if you're squimmish, just skip the next paragraph. I have heard of this but I have never seen it in person. And I don't care to see it ever again.
Dr Patti found a lump on her neck/chest. At first she thought it was some sort of an infection. No, it was not an infection, it was a Botfly Larvae living under the baby's skin. She pulled it out with a tweezer and I just about died. This all happened so fast and I was so incredibly grossed out over it! This thing left a hole in the baby's skin that almost the size of a dime! This thing is called a Cuterebra and basically, it's a giant maggot. Discusting! If you want to read more about it, here is a link. The article is quite humorous to help with the gross out factor but I will warn you, there are pictures.
Okay, so enough of that. I'll get back to the cuteness!!!
We are going to keep her. After I nurse her back to health, there's no way I'll be able to part with her. But there's one little problem. Scott and I can't agree on a name!
So, I decided to have a contest! Send me kitty names! Just leave your suggestions and ideas in the comment section on my blog. Feel free to send as many as you would like. Try to keep your ideas not too cutsy though. Scott doesn't like cutsy. Men!
We can of course only choose one name but when we do choose one, the winning name will receive a complimentary copy of the upcoming 2016 Crazy Quilt Calendar:
I will announce the name that we choose on August 16th. If a name is suggested by more than 1 person and we choose that name, the first person who suggested it will be winner.
Please share this contest on your blog and other social media places. Scott needs a lot of ideas to choose from. Remember, he's a man! A good one, but still a man!
