    Re: For animal lovers

    I took Pip to a nearby animal clinic to be checked for a microchip and to see if they could determine the kitten's approximate age and gender. The clinic was closed for the holiday weekend but fortunately there were some ladies working inside. One of them had been out walking a dog and saw me at the door. When I told them why I was there, they let me in.

    It ends up that Pip is about 6 weeks old and is a girl! She has a little ringworm on one ear but other than that, she's in good health. They have a kitten care plan at the clinic so I'll bring Pip back there when I'm ready to start her on that. I'll probably switch Squirt over to this clinic, too, since our old vet's office is so far away from where I live now.

    Squirty and Pip gave each other a bath today. It was so cute! I liked seeing them get along like that.

    The kitties have graduated from sleeping on the same couch to sleeping together. Awwww!

    You're lucky they bonded so quickly! It's sweet when two cats cuddle together.

    Yes, I've had the other experience before where I tried for about a month to get my old cat to get along with a new cat and she just wasn't having any of it! I was afraid of that happening with Squirt and Pip but fortunately Squirt seems to have readily accepted Pip. Maybe he's been lonely.

    I can't wait to get my digital camera back from my dad so I can take good pictures of Pip! The ones I've taken so far have been from the camera on my laptop. I'm thinking about getting a disposable camera in the meantime, if they still make those.

    Pip and Squirt are so cute together. I'm happy that they have bonded.
    Squirt is good boy.

    Poor Pipsqueak seems to be getting pink eye! I noticed over the last few day she's had sleepies on her right eye so I've wiped them away once a day. Yesterday her eye got a weepie (like a sleepie but more goopy) and by last night she had her eye closed to a slit. I looked online to see how to treat it and Lysine was suggested so I got some at lunchtime. I'm hoping I caught it early enough that it doesn't become a full-blown problem or spread to her other eye, or to Squirt!

    I forgot to mention that besides a song, Pip has a cheer. I say "Pip, Pip, hooray!" and she seems to like it.
