Early this morning at 2 am. It was a little thinner than I would have preferred but not full on diarrhea. I had broken down and made literal sugar water, a 4/1 water/sugar mix and gave him about 2 ml's of that yesterday evening. The teeny quarter teaspoon in his milk hadn't been enough to matter. I didn't give him anymore this morning, a. because he turns his little black nose up at it and b. because I don't want to give him the runs. I went back after he ate this morning and added half a tablespoon of pedialyte to his milk just make sure for later on. He's at the office today being safety kitty, a little miffed about being in his box again but he's snoozing so I only here a little peep when Honey and I talk too much. I'm a tired but relieved mama this morning. Office kitty pics to follow later!
Took the wee one in to see about treatment for either worms or possible blockage. He was a little trooper and got snuggled in the waiting room. He weighed in at 7.5 oz. Doc took his temperature (not a happy kitty) and told me he's still too tiny and too underdeveloped to handle any kind of vaccination or medicine. He didn't give him an enema for similar reasons: too small, too much of a risk of causing the opposite effect and dehydrating him again. Doc did take a look at the ick that was on the thermometer, seemed satisfied. He didn't mention worms or parasites. And the presence of ick on the thermometer is a good thing, it means no blockage up in his belly tract. So advice for now: Get a warm, wet cloth and rub him all over his belly and rear area. Add a pinch of sugar to his diet so his body can do the job on it's own. Home we went, a warm cat bath he got, and a belly full of freshlymixed milk with a pinch of sugar. He went straight to sleep in his condo. Today's candid is him in the truck snoozing on the way. Moms big rumbly moving box kind of lulls him, he likes to ride around.
Made it to 6.4 oz today! I've been adding bits of wet food fat/oil to his milk & he's eating 8 ml's at a time now. Still sleeping often but waking up & playing & purring more. We're going into his fourth week & I've noticed he can potty a bit on his own. I still stimulate just to make sure. He's a total snuggle bug & loves to be cuddled up. He toddles around more so I made him a little condo. I turned his box onside & left his heating pad in there. He's got some rug to explore & stroll around on. He's still so dark is hard to get good photos without using the flash which I try not to do. Thank goodness mommy has so many art supplies! Drawing pad walls yo! Sweet Little Thor with his sweet little face and that little licky tongue!!! Omg.
Growing by leaps & bounds. Weighed in early this morning at 5.1oz! We have officially doubled weight! He's about 20 days old and seems to be developing pretty well given his little bitty state. He is awake for longer periods & likes when Honey rubs his little belly. Walking & squeaking!
Introducing...... I got to looking at his little round face & the way hid little ears stick up.... he reminds me of Toothless the dragon from How to Train Your Dragon. We have him, Toothless Thor Winchester, Madame Princess Fluffypants, and... Texi. (Yes I'm a Supernatural junkie) I had to go back and brighten every photo because he's just pitch black except for his white patch on his chest. He's outgrowing his bunny. A whopping 4.5 oz!
Since we could all use some good news and happiness in our lives in a world filled with terrible news everyday, an adorable stray kitten interrupted a live news broadcast in Detroit. The kitten was very vocal and insistent upon getting attention, and proceeded to climb all over the newscaster. The kitten has been taken in by the Humane Society and will be up for adoption.
