Hey Pet Parents & Pet Lovers,
I’m so excited to let you know that we will be picking Carrie/Kalista up this weekend! (It’s weird to call her Kalista already since she’s not in our home and she’s still named Carrie “technically”, so I’ll refer to her as Carrie throughout this post.)
We delayed bringing Carrie home for a week because of a few reasons.
- PetSmart is actually holding an event to help support the shelter we’re getting her from, and if we rescue her through PetSmart they will get an extra donation towards their mission
- I’m about to go into a very, very rigorous tech week for a show I’m working on, but the show is also this week so next week I’ll have plenty of time.
I’m really sad that we didn’t get her this weekend because I’ve been dying to bring her home, but I think it’s the right choice since I won’t be home for at least 10-15 hours a day this week and… it would benefit both the rescue and me! (Since I want to make sure she’s adjusting well and is getting all the cuddles she deserves)
Carrie went through her spaying last week and recovered very quickly. I’ve actually never seen the recovery after a spaying/neutering, so I can’t speak to how fast the recovery really is, but I will say I was mega surprised to get the e-mail that she was running around and playing immediately when she got home. I’m also very glad to hear she’s doing well, nothing would crush my heart more than if something went wrong.
Carrie is still a picky, picky. So, my hubby and I went to buy a bunch of different brands to see if she would eat them, and we’re trying to get advice from pet parents to see if they’ve successfully gotten their little ones to eat foods that they were originally picky about. I know I will definitely be trying Fruitables again with her since it really worked for Beau and we got some Primal samples to see if she will take to it!
I’m so pumped to have her in our home and I just got excited when I added the little “Kalista” tab onto our menu!! Our house is really going to become a zoo, but I love it and can’t wait to tell you about the adventures we all get on! <3
