An April update



I am going to save the rest of the story for a time when I am a little more awake. Since I have had several people contact me asking if April was okay, I wanted to share with you a small update.

April is still with us. She has been very lethargic and has not eaten or pooped or peed since I have had her. I am very worried about her. She is not producing milk or if she is it is minimal. I am bottle feeding the kittens every two hours and running on no sleep and a LOT of adrenaline.. It is not much fun, and I'm not making a lot of sense right now.. :) fortunately, the kittens are nursing well and are gaining weight.

April is allowing the kittens to suckle on her and snuggle close for warmth, which is a huge comfort to them and a bit of a relief for me as I do not have to worry about them being chilled - a huge risk factor in kittens.

She spent yesterday and today getting rehydrated at the vet clinic. I will know more this evening when I pick her up.

  1. Thanks for the update. I will keep my fingers crossed for her (and her babies), and have Nicki and Derry turn up their purr motors.

  2. Continued purrs for this poor girl. It's terrible that her previous "owner" allowed her to get in this state.

  3. I was afraid to ask about April, though I too wondered. I know that if anyone can get her and her babies through this to good health, it's you.

  11. We purray that she can gain her strength back and help you with the babies. The fact that she cuddles and lets them suckle shows she is trying her best.
