roswell's vet bills

City Kitties came over this morning and we tried to get momcat2 in a carrier (not happening -- we'll trap her later in the week), but they loaded up Roswell and her sister (Newton? Pixel? Pug? Jelly? Chester? Ball? Lemon? Gnu? Sparky? Sleestaak? Batz? George?) to take them to their vet appointment. First on the list is Roswell's right eye, which remains swollen shut and has actually gotten worse. After that, treating their "worm bloat belly" -- which I take to mean they're filled with worms like Dom Dellouise leaving an all-you-can-eat buffet. They're also getting their shots and some expensive FIV/FLV testing.

All this is going to be in the $300 range. A bunch of people have emailed to ask if there's anything you can do to help -- apart from adopting a kitty that needs a home in your neighborhood, please consider donating to citykitties. Donations you make here will be earmarked specifically for Roswell and her family.

Roswell is going to be some human's best friend for the next dozen years.

I was thinking of calling the momcat Courage, because she's exhibited more courage than anything, human or animal I've ever seen before. Her devotion to her kids, and her willingness to put herself in frightening situations to protect them melts my heart.
