Benji is spending a little time at the "spa"
Benji's diarrhea became too much of an issue. I had originally contacted the shelter about it and they sent some meds to me to give, and I did. The next morning there had only been one incident of diarrhea, so I was encouraged. That evening when I got home there was between eight and ten! On the encouraging side a few of his 'deposits' were actually pudding / toothpaste consistency so despite the frustrating feeling that I was fostering a monkey who was flinging his poop, I had hope. The above photo happened because he needed a bath because he had gotten it all over him.
He wasn't going anywhere that night so we just cleaned the room again and hoped for the best. I didn't know when the thicker stool was produced, so I was so hoping that in the morning things would be different, but things were pure liquid again. I contacted the shelter and I was told they wanted to see the vet and keep him for a few days to watch him, so we brought him in and left him there.
I was offered three little black kittens, but it didn't work out for a couple of reasons. I'm hoping to get Benji back tomorrow, but we'll see how it goes. If not, at least I will have time to give the room a full cleaning and disinfection so it can be ready for someone new.
