1.They are happy, playful, enjoy their food and purr when petted. They love to chase each other and disembowel all toy mice.
2. Annie and Audrey sleep together. Audrey still tries to nurse once in awhile. She usually gets a swat from mom.
3. When either one of them uses the litter box it is not solid. Audrey sometimes has blood in hers. When she poops she cries loudly sometimes, not always. She goes from one box to another crying before she settles in one. Sometimes her poop is runny. Annie's tummy rumbles at times like it is full of gas.
4. I had them on Performatrin kitten dry first. The mom started with Eagle Pack Holistic Select chicken moist food. When the kittens were ready to eat moist food I put them on Performatrin kitten soft. Everyone had loose poop but I put that down to being teenie and nursing.
5. It was suggested by the vet because of Annie's runny stools that she be de-wormed again and change food to no-grain. So, test came back clear of parasites and she started on only dry. No difference to speak of. I now have them back on soft food. Audrey just had her booster and another de-worming last week. She was down for 5 days. Eating but no play and warm. Loose poops and blood. She perked up on day 5 and plays like a lunatic now and eats fine, drinks water and I have added plain yogurt to their soft food for help in any stomach bacteria. This morning, loose poop, a little blood.
Needlesstosay, I had to have them observed by the professionals.
They are stumped really. Not sure if this is only a bacterial infection but one of the techs mentioned that a lot of kittens from shelters are coming in with this.
So, another week of observation and let's hope the meds will do the trick. I want these girls better and I want less stress at Christmas. And that's that!
