So we ended up adopting Tessie my foster... (shocking isn't it?).

Well here are just a couple pictures from I believe Saturday? Or Friday. We tried to get her groomed but she bit the grooming people. She had her nails clipped and ears cleaned though. I ended up buying some waterless foam bath for her and so it's helping with cleaning her fur up :thumbs up

Doesn't she look awesome in her new collar?

awww sweet :cloud9: Tessie :lovestruck:

Glad to hear of the adoption :thumbs up & yes the collar is a great colour for her.

How does she take to being brushed? I've always started young with brushings so they get used to & like them :thumbs up

Not very well. She is extremely sensitive and ticklish on her backside. We're taking her in for a checkup soon to make sure nothing is wrong. She tolerates the brush for a few minutes then turns around and bites it. So I've just slowly been putting on some of the foam, brushing it out and wiping her up.


It's some new stuff by Blue Buffalo and it smells awesome

After I eat breakfast I'll find her and get some more pictures of her

She looks wonderful, congratulations on another foster failure! With patience she will learn to enjoy the brushing, you're doing well by just doing a bit at a time. She'll learn it's a good thing (hopefully)...

kung foo kitten!!! I was playing with Tessie with a shoelace and the kitten came out of nowhere and I managed to get this picture. She didn't hiss or nothing she just freaked out

She's a sweetie (and so is the little kitten). She looks to be getting along with your gang really well huh?

I'm going to get that foam shampoo for my gang. I haven't needed to bath them much because my allergies aren't super bad anymore, so I'm afraid they might not take kindly to being put through a regular bath now.

Czarina hates being brushed too. I have to take her in to have her nails clipped and ears cleaned because she will not let me do it, like the others do. It's no bid deal though, it's not like it's a daily thing so...

Uhhh 9 that I own directly. I have usually around 5 ferals I care for (I spay and neuter them!) but also my neighbor has 2 outside cats she rescued as strays. She has severe asthma and just couldn't bring them in, so I helper her with getting them fixed and everything so she keeps them outside.

I've got 3 fosters left and 1 leaving Monday!

Tessie goes to the vet next Friday for a checkup! Haha this should be interesting..

Better watch out! You are becoming perilously close to being as bad as me. :rolleyes: :D
