Sophie goes back to cattery

Sad to say, the fostering of Sophie has come to an abrupt end.

On Saturday, Sophie had severe diarrhea in the afternoon, and again at almost midnight, although she had hardly ate on Saturday. She refused to let me wipe her last night, and again this morning. I think she may need some medication to make her better, but if she doesn’t like me enough (although she’s always purring and kneading away) to let me wipe her diarrhea stain, trying to give her medicine would be quite unthinkable.

Her sponsor decided that it’s best for Sophie and all if Sophie returns to the cattery, where she won’t feel stressed and where she will be able receive full-time care, so arrangement was made for the pet taxi to send her back. It was my choice to foster Sophie and I’m sorry that things did not work out. At this point in time, I’m not capable to provide the level of care that she probably needs (maybe when I’m semi-retired and can spend more time at home).

2 days is a little too short. It is probably more stressful for Sophie to be moved from place to place in 2 days.

Actually pilling a cat is not that difficult once you get the hang of it and Sophie seems like a nice docile cat which should make pilling all that much easier.

Sorry to hear things doesn't work out well. At least everyone tried.
