the beasts at shady lane
This is Lucy.
This is her twin sister, Ruby. The only way to tell them a part is that Ruby has 4 whisker freckles in a line on each side of her nose. Lucy's whisker freckles are in a triangle instead of a line, and there are 5 of them.
You will notice that Ruby's left eye looks a bit weird. Turn out both kitties has some bacterial infection in their eyes. It got both of Lucy's eyes. So I took them to the vet for medication and advice. I picked up an ointment to put in their eyes. It has to be done 3 times a day for 14 days...
Every try to get ointment in a kitten's eyes? You would swear you are wresting an ocotopus. Boy usually holds them, and I try to get the stuff in the eyes without poking them with the tube. We both end up covered in hair, and sweating from the effort. It is really quite a production. How can a kitten weighting 1.4 lbs be so strong, and flexible, and scary?
And this is Smoke our other creature. He doesn't need eye goop so I love him best right now. But his litter box does take longer to clean out...
