Scout Without Banjo


Several people have asked how Scout is coping now that we've lost her brother, so I thought I'd do an update.

She'd seemed very lethargic in the week or so before Banjo died and actually perked up a bit after he was gone. We realized she must have known he was dying and been depressed because of it. But there's no denying a spark has gone out of her. It isn't just that she's alone now. She was always the timid one and leaned heavily on Banjo for moral support. He was the calm one, the brave one, the one who bathed her face and neck every day and reassured her when things were scary. Now she's lost that, and she's adrift.

Steve especially spends as much time with her as he can, because she's always been his special girl. But she's not eating well. As much as I miss Banjo, I know she misses him more. He was her rock, and now he's gone.
As for Huck, he seems to be feeling a lot better; he's eating and running around and terrorizing the other cats again. But we are still waiting on some test results.

Glad to hear Huck is better. Sad for Scout though. What a sweety.

I ended up adopting a litter of five kittens. Three were healthy but two became very ill from flea anemia and required constant care. The day after I lost one of them, her sister's temperature went up and she started eating on her own-in fact she ate so much I named her Piglet. Even the vet was amazed. It was like losing her sister gave her the strength to keep fighting. Hang in there Scout! Feel better. You're a fighter!

Charles, she really is so sweet.

Amy, sounds like you had quite a time! Do you still have all four? And you're right; I think Scout is stronger than she realizes. She must be to be so handicapped and still have survived on her own for the first six months of her life.

I ended up finding a home for one of the kittens and I kept the other 3-a boy & two girls-they just turned 10. I also have a set of brothers that were born to a feral mom and they are 12 and a 7 year old girl I adopted from a rescue. Then in March I found a pet carrier near the dumpsters of my apartment building and inside was a small dog and a kitten. I found a home for the dog but it looks like the kitten is staying with me. So my total is now 7 cats and I tell myself that if Candy can handle her group of cats then I can handle mine. : )

Poor little Scout. This post made me cry. She will be grieving and need a lot of love in the near future. It is good to know that she will certainly get that at your house.

cs harris said...

Amy, LOL, it's good to know we're not the only crazy ones. Although the story about the dog and kitten left in a carrier by the dumpsters turned my stomach. How could anyone do such a thing? There really ought to be a special place in hell....

Suzanne, we're going to try moving her crate in with the Marmalades this weekend to see if that helps. I guess I've never talked about the Marmalades....

C- as a sister myself i know how scout feels. my sister and i are always watching each others back. good thing Scout has Steve as her backup. and if Huck is acting up - maybe he is on the mend too. hope you have a happy and uneventful 4th of July. Best, Ali

Sad for Scout. Glad she is perking up though.

Or how about putting her with Whiskies? we just love him and he'd be like a giant teddy bear for her. Sabena

Ali, enjoy the holiday! we're celebrating FINALLY getting my mom's old house on the market. It has consumed our weekends for the past year.

RR, it will be interesting to see what she makes of her relocation this weekend. Fingers crossed.

Sabena, I'm afraid he'd collapse her crate! The Marmalades are actually his litter mates; I wouldn't go so far as to say they're normal, but at least they're not retarded.
