A Kitten Recovers

Let me, Mss Inky, tell you about this past week. It has been a very stressful around the foster room and we have been purring up a storm for our little sister Rikki.

Since we little ones came Rikki has been fighting off a bit of something. She would be fine and full of energy and then just a bit quiet. Monday she ate very little and then nothing on Tuesday. Pops got her on Claivimox but she still did not eat so he was worried and took her to the vet. We thought she would stay in the catspial but no.

We were worried.She looked sad and her fur was funky but she did not want to be with any other cat so we let her be.

Pops put her in the big crate so she could rest. He started feeding her kitty-milk that he made to keep her strength up. He Would feed her at 6am and then a bit before he leaves for work at 8am. Then at 530 and 830 too. He told us not to worry but we did.(He was worried too but wanted us to feel better)

He made a special bed for her so she would be warm. She did not eat on Friday.

On Saturday morning I went on the cat tree to say good morning and she told me she ate the treats he had given her. Wow. I heard Pops coming and ran to the top of the tree to watch. He was real happy that at least the treats were half gone and he made a new dish up for her and gave her the kitty milk.

We got a nice breakfast and a bit of play. I asked her when Pops left how that stuff was and she said it was kind of good. The holding and making you eat was no fun. Just not what a cat allows. The other fosters heard her say this very loudly and a bit cranky. We all purred and meowed agreement as we knew then that she was getting better. Whew. Scary when a kitten is sick.

So at 10am Pops came down again and he was surprised that she ate all the treats and the dry kitten kibble too. He was all happy and gave us all a few extra treats.

Well good times never last as his friend came over with the hose-monster. Why he lets her come in here with that just mystifies we fosters. I mean she is nice and plays along with Pops and us but then always with the WHOOOSSHH.. Pops runs away too so maybe he cannot control this. Hmmmm.

So then Pops brought Rikki out and we all played. She ate right along with all of us. She did tire out a bit quickly but that is understandable. We are just glad she is better.

Oh yeah I almost furgot...

Fitz and Buttons went out to the vet too. Fitz showed us her belly where she has an ouchis. She said to leave her alone so no problem. She can be a bit scary. Buttons said he felt funny too but we cannot see any ouchie. His tail does lay flatter though. Hmmmm.

Have a good week all..

If you know someone who wants a kitty and they live in PA we are here..

I hope the little kitty gets all better, soon.
And that those kitties as a whole all find homes, too.

Really glad that Rikki is feeling better, and that Fred and possibly Buttons have new homes! We've got another feral in the house ourselves - her name's Fearless, and I guess she's here to stay. We're working on getting used to it...

Congratulations DOTD! how very exciting for you. Moma recalls what is is like to see a sick kitten recover, sometimes she was not sure I would still be here over 2 years later, but kittens can be tough when we wann live!
Purring that Rikki continues to feel better every day.
