Babies Vet Visit


Imrlgoddess

937 views

I took the muffins in this morning to see our family vet.  They hadn't gained any significant weight all week and I was worried. He said they were close to dehydration and gave them both some fluid. 

They've been fed twice since the visit and ate a little better than they did yesterday. Dr. Lambert is an older fellow who still practices simply because he adores animals, honestly I don't know how he stays in business because he works with everyone who walks in the door. He told me to keep feeding them like I have been, with Pedialyte mixed into their formula. He also told me to feed them water to help combat the dehydration. 

He was hopeful but honest given that I don't know the condition of their mother & what she may or may not have had going on. Please keep lifting them up & lighting candles for them.  The muffins and I appreciate ya'lls prayers. 

New pictures coming soon. :my_shy:

Will double down on the candles and incense---and may you and your dear spouse be blessed richly for all that you are doing for the babies.

My thoughts and well wishes are with you and the muffins.  Fluids and more fluids.  A hard road - but I hope everything works out for you all.  And many blessings on Dr. Lambert.  Those old fashioned vets are the best.

I'll ask Lady Bast to watch over the babies. Tiny kittens are so hard - thank you for taking care of the pretty babies!

May all the Blessed Eternals, by whatever name one calls Holy, look kindly upon those small cat-momma-less-babies.  

(No insult meant, Imrlgoddess, but you are NOT a Usual kitty-momma who can make good milk with colostrum and keep them perfectly snuggly---but I admire immensely your attempts, and ask the Deity's blessings and aid for you in your compassion.)  May they be graced to become Big Mighty Huntahs, growing in health and strength.  

But if this is not to be: may they have an easy going, and wait happily on Rainbow Bridge for escorts into Wonderful Joy.

A thousand's worth and another thousand's times worth of blessings on rescuers of all sorts, and a million-eleventy blessings on animal professionals (*paging Dr. Lambert, DVM!*) who use their skill and resources to help---and kinda forget about the weekly budget for rent, meds, and insurance for a while, while they work to relieve suffering.

In peace and hope, and remaining sincerely yours,

samira

I can't top @samira_catlover's blessing (and I would never try), but I wish you, Thor, and Hestia good things. It really is tricky when you don't know what happened to or with their bio-mom. I'll keep hoping and praying for y'all.

Wishing you and you kitties well. Alfie approves of rescuing kitties. He was tiny once. Sigh......image.jpeg

@Blahblah: Oh, gosh, there's another kitty who likes to play at being Roadkill.  Our Senior Cat from a shelter, Lucky (?maybe part Maine Coon?--any road, he is a HUGE kitty) sprawls out the EXACT same way.  Dunno whether he's trying to dump excess heat or whether he just wants a belly rub.

Health and strength to all the horrible spoiled-rotten awful FurryBrats (yes, even canines: the Eternal made them, so there must be a good reason) who share our lives----and lots of the same, plus good wishes and hope, for FurBabies in shelters and foster homes!

Thank y'all so much! They ate well last night & this morning. I've upped the water intake so it seems to be helping. I discovered the most wonderful thing when cleaning Little Thor's face, He Purrs!  It's the cutest damn thing ever! 

@Blahblah that's a big kitteh! That's where I hope these end up. Spoiled & poofy.

      I always read that the genetics for twins are connected to the mother and not the father, but what a huge coincidence then that Jed who is a twin is also having twins.

      Yes, Jed one the twin grand Duggar contest. He will now be JB’s favorite. Since they are both girls, they might be identical. Which is just spontaneous. Unlike fraternal. Which is highly genetic due to ovulating more than one each month being genetic.

      Depending on when the babies are coming in 2025 she’s most likely at the tail end of the first trimester or a few weeks into the second. I’m guessing they did one of those sneak peak blood tests to find out the genders.

      According to the video, they found out at an ultrasound. The technician turned off the screen at some point, and just wrote the gender of twin A and B in envelopes. They gave them to James, who arranged the gender reveal.

      Their oldest Truett was born may 2022 wich means they will have 4 under 3 for a little while.

      They didn't specify a due date, but ended the video with this message. She must be due very early 2025. They did two ultrasounds - one three weeks or more before the gender reveal where they found out that they were expecting twins, and one close to the gender reveal where they found out that it was two girls. I don't have kids and don't know how early you can see if it's a boy/girl, but I assume she must be at least 10-12 weeks.
