Hey y’all. I just wanna update and let y’all know that Joxer is feeling SO much better. I haven’t found any blood in his pee in a couple days and he’s started actually using the litter box again which is a huge relief. I’m so happy!! Thanks for the advice.
Thank you for your kind words and advice,
We got through last night quite well. Tiger and Pooh are what I decided to name my two little kittens. Pooh is obviously the one whose poo was a struggle from day one and Tiger is very feisty when he gets hungry.
So little Pooh was still very bloated, but as I massaged his belly for a while he eventually had a big poo without any traces of blood – I think perhaps the blood was not in the feces but rather from the very hard poo he struggled to get out. He drank very well after that. I also noticed this morning that he and his brother Tiger made quite a mess in their little nest, so I am glad that both of them were able to poo during the night.
I am a little concerned about their milk intake, as I have read a 10 day old kitten should be drinking 10-12ml formula every 10 hours, but they still only drink about 6-8 ml every 3 hours. I don’t know if it maybe because they suffered a great deal of discomfort while not being able to poo that much?
I am a little worried about Tiger as well, he starts drinking very eagerly and the just spits the bottle out, but immediately after that starts crying and searching, when I try to give him some milk again he does the same. His poo was also a bit hard this morning and the last push was very soft and splurting.
I also gave them a bath this morning as they smell terrible even if I stimulate them with a wet wipe (Organic wipes – fragrance and alcohol-free)
that seemed to ease their discomfort.
I do change their bed sheets 3 or 4 times a day, and the get a bath every day.
Do any of you have any advice for cleaning their bedding to get rid of the smell more effectively? Or what else I can do to make them smell better?
Other than that I guess I am just overly tired and get a little paranoid to quickly.
I will be taking them to the vet in this week. I would like to keep their formula the way I am giving it to them now as I don’t want to upset their stomachs further, but I will definitely try the olive oil.
Thank you for the advice, I will keep you guys updated
First of all, I am a first time bottle-baby mama and this site has been a LIFESAVER. Thank you thank you.
I have four 2 week old rescue kittens. They were abandoned more than likely on the day they were born and due to weather, neighborhood dogs, and them being covered in insects, we decided to take them in after mom didn’t come back for the entire day.
They have been growing consistently, eating very well. They crawl around when they are out of their nest for feedings, eyes are beginning to open, seem pretty healthy!
However, after pretty normal pooping the first two days, they just stopped defecating all together. When they finally did it was very runny and there was a tiny bit of blood on the anus after each stimulation.
I took them to the vet where she prescribed some antibiotics and said the bleeding shouldn’t be an issue if it starts getting better.
That was 3 days ago, and they are still having diarrhea and blood on their bums, red and inflamed anuses. I am feeding them canned KMR halved with Pedialyte. They seem healthy otherwise, not lethargic or feverish. Has anyone had any experience with this??
Just spotted the spy cat in the drawer. Wonderful!
Love Spy vs Spy.
Can’t scan any of my own photos to add because the computer that drives the scanner when phwtt! on Friday. If it was just the power supply I can get it fixed. If anything else got fried it’s just so much e-waste.
Avogadro’s number is just a (very large) number – approx 6 followed by 23 zeros. It’s defined as the number of atoms of the carbon-12 isotope (that’s the common everyday carbon, no radioactive nonsense) that you need for it to weigh exactly 12 grams.
It’s useful because it lets you convert chemical equations – which are written using ratios of numbers of atoms – into weights and measures that you can use in the laboratory.
