Nario is one very sick little kitten. He had been the healthiest and most outgoing of the bunch. We have had some sneezing going on, but not him; even this morning he was being his goofy energetic self. Then we had some snot bubbles and I wrote to the shelter and told them (I realized when I got home from work that no one answered me so I'll have to go in tomorrow to get something) when I went to check on them he was in the box sleeping. I let Eliza and Ezra out to run for a few minutes and when I went to put them back Nario was still in the box.
I put my hand on his ears and they felt cold - not that means a whole heck of a lot as he was sleeping - and then I put my hand on his little body and I couldn't tell if he was purring or shivering. I picked him up and he did neither.
I fed them and everyone ate but Nario. I put a little in his mouth and he ate that and almost seemed interested but then turned around and walked away. I tried offering him some baby food, and no go.
Unfortunately I don't seem to have a thermometer in the kitten room (it's probably hiding out with the 100 or so pairs of nail trimmers that have gone missing in that room too), so I'm off to get one (and a few other things)
Not sure if I'll get another chance to update you before the AM, but I'll let you know how it goes
