Well sadly the fab five are 'failing to thrive'. They aren't getting sick and they aren't obviously dealing with this in any way other then they weigh the exact same amount today that they did when they showed up. They are happy, they are playful, they are obnoxious.. so I'm not anywhere near worrying about them.
But someone or two someones has diarrhea (there are many well formed 'tootsies' as well as your poop-poop platters) and there has been some vomiting so I grabbed as good of a sample of the PPP as I could and took it down to the shelter. They said they would call me if they found anything out of the ordinary (and no call came) and they sent me home with some dewormers for round worms (pretty standard - all kittens get strongid) and tape worms (cestex) so the kittens got their first taste of getting stuff shoved down them last night. It went pretty well. Only Niki overly reacted (why am I not surprised)
They also have not been eating well at all. (did I mention these kitties have severe ADD??)
|this is a toy right?|
|Maybe if I hadn't called it 'slop' before putting it down??|
|Yum yum, you kittens are gonna LOVE this.. (right?)|
|Well this smells different|
|I'm not eating that slop|
|*sniff* *sniff* Why are you sniffing this??|
|I have no idea!|
Fancy feast kitten.. Forgetaboutit..
Seriously guys, what on earth do you want??? Play is not food.. hey, get back here!!
*headinhand* *sigh* I am seriously hoping that deworming them will spur their appetite and it will be nothing but awesomeness from here..
|Don't you wish this was you?|
