Shame on me! I forgot to update on the domestic rescue side of things! The mom and kittens that Laurie is fostering for the MSPCA are doing great! Sadly, one little kitty did not make it, but the fact that the other 4 are thriving is a miracle in and of itself, considering none were expected to do well as a result of the meds Mom had to be on.
Mom is a wonderful doting mother....as is Dougie, their step-dog! ;)
