Powder and Snake

Postby hauk » Sun Feb 11, 2007 8:39 pm

Powder is completely recovered from her Cat wounds, She has dark spots of hair and a lot of white on her back and her tail is blonde, I know she sounds strange but she is one of the sweetest flyers I have ever had, She is second only to Deb's Tom Tom, Joan posted a new picture of her today under that thread about the asian flyer (maybe she will post it again here). Snake had a very quick recovery and I put her in the wild bunch cage friday night, She moved into one of the center Condo's and now I can't tell her from the rest of the hellions. Thanks for asking. Tom

Pout... how come she went to the Wild Bunch cage if she's so sweet? I thought people were lining up to adopt her. I did see the pic Joan posted today. That's what made me ask about her. Wasn't sure how old the pic was. I just fell in love with her the first time I saw her. What a little sweetie. I know she'll be happy in her new surroundings, I was just hoping she'd spend the rest of her life as a pampered princess draped in pink fleece. Of course compared to the wild she will be living the pampered life.

You're so sweet Tom... always the diplomat. You were completely clear. I'm just tired & didn't pay attention to what you said, lol. I'm so happy for Powder. I can't wait to see who the lucky HOF is. I know whoever it is will spoil her rotten like she deserves.

I'm betting she's in charge of that condo right now! :twisted:
Tom didn't tell you that the last time I was over to see her (She was doing so well) that Tom opened the cage, got the nest box out and she shot out like a bullet and ran out of the room, down the hall and into a bedroom with Tom in pursuit and grabbing her 3 times, but she was like a greased pig, leaving him behind in the dust. He closed her off in the bedroom to let her calm down, and she found her way to a cage and crawled in. He said he just had to close the cage door. After that escapade, she was back lying on her side until Tom did some chiropractic adjustments ... then she was fine.
She may have a bad back instead of MBD, but she's fit as a fiddle now and the MBD treatment sure didn't hurt. Heaven help any "Wild Bunch" flyer who messes with her. LOL

Tom says Powder is darkening up very quickly and she is not going to have any white on her soon and thinks that she will not have any white on her at all when she has her next molt.

She is a royal beauty.What an amazing recovery.

Can you refresh my old memory? If her fur is turning back to a normal color, what caused it to be all white?

Thank You for the updated pictures. Wow she is adorable.

Powder

Postby hauk » Fri Feb 16, 2007 10:14 am

Mary: Powder was sent to me by a local vet who would not treat her because whoever brought her to him could not afford to pay for treatment (The guy is not my favorite Vet), Anyway she had been attacked by a cat and hurt very badly, I think that she was so scared by the incident that all of the hair on her back fell out and turned white when it started to grow back in. I started her on antibiotics and a lot of gentle handling, She progressed well and now it looks like her hair will soon return to its normal color. She is so gentle that anyone can pick her up and thru all of her treatment has never attempted to bite, She is very small but she makes up for the size in sweetness. Thanks to all of you for asking, It makes this job very rewarding. Tom

What a sad story. To be that scared, her hair turning white. I am so glad the vet gave her to you. I sit here in amazement at how you gently work with each one that needs your help and care. You know just what to do. She could have been traumatized her whole life.

Thank You

Alopecia areata (AA)

Postby Joan » Sun Mar 25, 2007 5:54 pm

I found Powder's condition in one of my throw-a-way medical journals.
She had Alopecia areata (AA) "which is characterized by the rapid and complete loss of round patches of hair. AA spares white hair, but there is a sudden whitening of the other hairs after a shock. (Cat bite will do that for sure!) AA is an autoimmune disease in which melanocytes in the hair bulb appear to be the target for active T cells. This explained why white hairs are seldom affected. AA is associated with an increase incidence of other autoimmune diseases. While other forms of alopecia are resistant to treatment, AA responds to treatment, which should be individualized. Many patches will regrow in a few weeks without any treatment."

BTW, Tom gave Powder to Connie, his grey rehabber friend, and she brought her back after 2 days because Powder wouldn't eat. She immediately jumped on Tom and shirt dove and has been eating like a pig ever since. That little spoiled furball knows how to get her way. :twisted:

Now that is a girl who is going to keep "Her" Man. :twisted:

Correct me if I am wrong but I think Tom had said he leaves the "spoiling" to the woman.

Well this is one little chick, I mean furball, that knows who she got spoiled from and is no way going to leave that cushy life.

You have to be proud that she loves you so much.

Congrads daddy Tom.

Postby hauk » Sun Mar 25, 2007 9:14 pm

Powder has turned into a very possesive little girl, She will not leave my shirt, As soon as I get her out in the morning I put her on a paper towel to pee, As soon as she pees she jumps on me even if I am 6 feet away and she shirt dives and spends the whole day in my shirt, She does not sleep all day and loves to run laps in my shirt, She hangs out of my sleeve and just watches the world go by, Powder is a very special squirrel, She ranks right up there with Deb's Tom Tom.

Ever Tom's dog Neut is getting sick of Powder. Neut considers all the flyer pups his babies, but now he just turns his head and walks away when Powder's out. Poor Neut. :(
I saw Tom today and Powder may need to be sent to Juvie Lockup soon. She LOVES yellow squash and Tom being the good squaddy that he is, goes for variety. Well, the other night Powder didn't get yellow squash. She stood in the middle of her plate and war danced til Tom brought her some. So much for tough love. :twisted:
