Good news/Bad news day.

Bad news. Not a single adoption from the adoption event I had to run my 3 boys to. That after juggling to get their microchips done at the vet's where one of the microchips came back out and had to be sterilized and reinserted and that made us late and then getting them there, and no one was expecting them even though I had been assigned to that store so we had to set up an extra cage. Whew. Three adoptions at the other store. Figures.

Good news. All the kittens are still hanging in there, and Ashfur is eating voluntarily again. I have them all on reglan and biomox and fortiflora and that is all I can do. The rest is up to them, and since they are eating they have a shot.
