We saw a sweet video of one of the CFA volunteers helping a koala who survived the fire. It is from The Daily Telegraph, and was filmed by another volunteer.
Polly Smitten-Kitten is continuing to get stronger. She is still too skinny, but is eating well, and has new energy in her eyes. It is good to see!:) The others are growing like weeds, but we will keep them for a little while longer, while the shelter's backlog starts to ease a bit. Do any other kitties have experience with broken tails? Polly and Penny both have breaks in their tails. Polly's is up near the tip of the tail, and Penny's is down about 2cms from the base. We're not really worried about Polly's, but Penny's has us wondering. The shelter isn't concerned, and she isn't having any problems with pooping or balance. She also doesn't mind it being touched, and it doesn't seem to hurt her. It is at an angle though! Is that likely to cause her any problems? Mum isn't sure when it happened, either. We've never had a kitten with a broken tail, that we know of.
Our daddy got a Blogger account to comment on our post on Monday! He is Forever Dad! Hi daddy! We love you (and mum loves you too)!:)
