The good news, from NewDealFarmGrrl:
The last little kitten from the bleg needs to relocate to Maryland. A number of folks chimed in that they’d help with relocation costs. Is this something Balloon Juice can get rolling?
Kitten is staying at my house and is scheduled to see the vet this afternoon for well-kitten and shots visit so we can make sure Kitten won’t endanger Jefferson’s (Barb’s cat) stressed immune system.
First pic is Kitten playing with a tassel toy in the basket-with-heating-pad I set up for her.
Second pic is her enjoying ear skritchies — for such a tiny kitten she sure has a huge purr! She loves tummy rubs with a passion, but I couldn’t manage a pic of that. Very affectionate but lonely kitten wants to go to her furrever home!
I don’t have the faintest idea how to arrange transport, so I would be forever grateful if Balloon Juice can help.
I have a small carrier for her that my cats have long since outgrown, that can go with her as well as the food my brother bought. Plus my too-small surplus litter pan and some litter.
Debit, as regular readers will know, took in another one of the kittens. She also recommended TLC Pet Transport, the people who got Walter from Cole’s home to hers.
But, the less-than-optimal news, from B Lamb:
I talked to TLC Pet Transport and they are sending a more firm estimate later today, but said the cost is over $1000. They have relays that run regularly on certain routes, but Minnesota is not part of that. We have to pay for the additional cost to get from Minnesota to their central location.
They wont take the kitten until she is 8 weeks and has all her initial shots. I may need to pay for another vet visit to be sure she has all her shots, which is fine.
I will let you know when I get the quote.
I am in and out right now. My new preemie granddaughter, born on the 4th, is now home, and I need to help my daughter and son-in-law today by watching their sons while they go to a bunch of appointments. I will check email for the quote, as I can.
I’m going to be away from the computer until later in the evening myself. But once we know exactly how much Miss Calico’s Big Adventure will cost, I’ll re-up this post with the details. I have an email for Barb, so anyone who wants to chip in can send me a message (‘Contact an author’) or firstname.lastname@example.org ) and I’ll reply with the link…
