Kitten Update

Kittens!  Oy vey!  Where did I leave off? 

You know about Buttons and the 3 tinies, right?  Now we have Button's sister because the foster family was flighty and she wasn't getting socialized or growing like her brother.  Well, the littles are typical tiny kittens taken from their momma too early (she was hit by a car).  We had the diarrhea and the puking so they had fluids and antibiotics and got better.  But wait, Pixel started puking again.  We upped her dosage of antibiotics but now she's limping.  Calici virus.  Sigh.  She's back on Cerenia to stop the puking.  Spouse is learning to give her shots so the vet tech doesn't have to make house calls every day.  His choice, she never complained.  I can't bear to do it.  What if the needle goes right thru the skin and comes out the other side?  What if the needle breaks off inside her flesh? What if all the air comes out of her and she flies around the room deflating!  I can't do it! 

Kukido now has a runny eye and that shit spreads because it's a herpes virus.  So all the kittens are getting lysine in their food because she won't eat the lysine treats.  Plus she's getting eye drops. 

I changed Saffron to Buttercup because she's such a fuzzy princess.  And she's fine!  So far.  Oh kittens and their delicate underdeveloped immune systems!
