So the five of them are so active and LOUD.. you would be shocked to realize we have a serious issue going on. Two of the fab four started to lose weight. The girl and the white faced boy were down almost an ounce in a day. They also produce stool so odorous that it could probably be used to strip paint off walls.

Anyway, I took those two into the shelter with a stool sample. Nothing was detected, so I was sent home with instructions to deworm again on the off chance they were so infested the first dose didn't take care of it all, and we gave them both some fluids. When they got home they had a few bites of food, which was wonderfully encouraging, but not nearly enough to sustain. Kittens have that horrible window where they should nurse AND eat, because neither one alone gives them enough calories to sustain them, and when you throw in just one other little thing, it can so easily tip the scales in the wrong direction.
I also got a package this weekend. Cats & Co had a surprise giveaway, meaning they offered up "something" for us to win, with out telling us what it was. It was so fun to win and wait to find out what it was.. well here it is..

I have yet to figure out where I'm going to put it, but I do love it.
