Heya lovely once. Dear lord I'm going to have to write this in pieces while trying to shove something in my face called food cause I hadn't have the chance to eat yet and while looking for her... Constantly.. Of course pictures etc definitely will follow later! At the moment she's a handful! More then a handful. (pics: I'm horrible with phone uploading so got to shove'm on the pc somehow and upload) God picking up your kitten is a double cutting blade! We put her in her basket as we deemed it safer to drive such a long way home. (and her safety comes above my need to hold her all the way) but she reached her arm and paw out to her mom and her mommy cat to her. Needless to say me and the breeder where in tears. It was harsh. I'm taking her baby away. God I felt bad for a minute or 10. The trip itself went well, she slept the whole way and occasionally woke up to see what was going on (like when we took a turn or so and we even made a quick stop for a pizza as it's pizza day.) [Lost her somewhere in this tiny studio...] But at home, well no one prepared me for this lol. Dear lord. So we put her in the litter box right away. But she crawled out and before I could pick her up again she ran under the bed. She hissed and growled at me. So I let her be for a while cause I can understand, away from mom and sibblings, everything new, big and scary! [She's hiding again] Once I could 'grab' her gently again, I showed her her water and she drank, a lot, again bed hiss growl. On attempt 3 I was able to show her her food, she ate like a piggy that was starving (being well aware at the breeder there is always kibble out, no way she's starving). Oh yes bed hiss growl again. So now we're about 3-4 hours later, I lost track of time and she's again somewhere under the bed. [I lost her again, I can here her mew, dear god be right back] Don't get me wrong, I can pet her and if I wrap her in her fleece and cuddle her and kiss her she all allows that without complaining. Then she's the sweetest thing you can imagine. God not to mention she's softer then soft. Oh those head smooches and her smell. I can even touch her ears, nose and such without any complaining. She even sometimes purrs! When she fell asleep in the blanket on my lap, for the love of god she's a heavy dreamer, breather and sound board. But once she woke up again > bed hiss growl. *sigh* Like now, yes she's under there again. The first 5+ few times she hid she at least made sound so I could track her with a small heart being scared she would be stuck somewhere, the little troublemaker! (If I could get her out volunteerly I wrapped her up and cuddled and kissed her to bits of course) Atm I lost her AGAIN!!! and it's death silent. I think the poor thing fell asleep under the bed somewhere between the boxes. Now I feel bad for her she has to sleep there, alone, even if it's cause she want to while she has so many warm soft places she could go to instead! Thank god I have a awesome breeder that calls in to check how it's going, to guide me and comfort me that the hissing and growling will stop, that she's just a bit stressed for now due the big change. She did laughed her b--- off when I told her her baby is a piggy that was starving. She says not to worry, only to keep an eye that she goes to the litter box eventually. Preferable in it. So the whole reason, bless my honest breeder, I got her 10 days earlier is that the kittens had a bad reaction, not sure it was on the de-worm or the injection. Safira was the trooper of the bunch, she only throw up a tiny bit, but the others. The poor baby's! 3 had to stay the night at the vet. They got tested right away on gardia (I spelled it wrong, didn't I?) and got preventive medication just in case, but my breeder did request to come and get her just in case that when the 3 come back home they don't keep running in a circle of passing it down to one and other. My breeder is doing this 10 years, I trust her completely and blindly due the good connection we have, so we went to get her to keep her safe here. Meanwhile the results are in, thank god it's just a reaction. No parasites, no gardia, tritri or any other thing that could be it. Pfew! I was so happy not only for me but also for my breeder of course. I only did notice, the vet on her European passport wrote Saphira.. Oh well, close enough? Once we visit our vet, guess I can always ask if they can fix it or make a new one? If not... Among celebrities spelling mistakes is a trend too no? And there you have it, that was my hell-one-of-a-kind gotcha day and why it got sped up. What a story uh? God this is going to be a long night. I wont relax until she feels comfy and home.
