Meet Chanel, my new tripod foster.....

... that will probably be a foster failure. She is super sweet and a senior and has a "smoke" coat. Add only 3 legs into the mix and it's a serious sympathy factor for me! The underside of her is white and the outer part of the hair is a dark chocolate brown, almost a black. It gives her a seriously motley look! She came in totally infested with fleas but 2 baths later and a flea treatment and those fleas are evicted. What do you think? She is home now, settling in. There has been a bit of growling here and there but nothing serious. Not sure what name we will finally decide on - the runners up are Samatha (Sammy) and Mary Lou

Aww, she looks like an absolute sweetheart. What an unusual coat color! She looks really thin - will you need to fatten her up?

Oh, yes, I will need to fatten her up quite a bit. I have offered her several flavors of wet food and she has picked at most but not eaten much. I offered several dry varieties, too with Science Diet adult being the most popular. At this point I do think stress of the move has played a part but we will see what a vet check says after the holidays.

We now call her Pretty Girl, because frankly she is not. For the first few days I had not seen her use the litter box (not unusual with 6 other adults here), then we had to leave town for several days for a funeral. I now see that she is peeing in my shower, or on hubby's bathroom floor near the shower. Ugh. We decided to go ahead and treat her for a possible UTI to see if that helps. Unless this solves the problem, this makes her largely unadoptable to the general public, so I will need to make a decision about her soon.
