It has been a rough weekend here at Casa de Gato. We have had some good things and some not so good things.
First off, I had to clean the kitten room this weekend, it was getting rather gross. I've been keeping it rather warm in there (I'll get into that in a bit) and the poop and pee really were making the place rank. Have to say though, doing so was not easy...
Not sure if you can see it but Issac Arnold is shivering in the beginning of this second video :( which is why we are keeping the heater running and keeping beds near by. As you can see everyone else seems to be doing better. We started Clavamox to see if it might be a bacterial infection making their stools so liquid, and we seem to have some improvement. I even saw one real honest to goodness tootsie roll.

Issac Arnold and Smedley got honest to goodness baths, with soap and running water for a rinse afterwards. They were both fairly good about it, but seeing Issac Arnold all wet makes his thin body condition all that more painfully obvious. Since there has been some improvement, I don't know if I should push this further at this point or wait it out and see what happens. I fear that Issac Arnold is at the point where he can either get better or die - there appears to be no other chances for this boy. The fact that he is still alive at this point is pretty amazing. I do hope and pray he is a miracle kitty and he pulls through this.

And then just to make things horribly interesting, Jack has started peeing around the house and the urine is bloody. I haven't been keeping up with the herbs that have been keeping him steady because I have been so caught up with the kittens and losing Smivick and working so hard on making sure we didn't lose another. I was so hoping that he didn't need to stay on the herbs for the rest of his life, but at this point I am guessing what ever damage that Catswell did to him is irreversible. He breaks my heart because when he is peeing blood I know he must obviously be in pain.
