It's been another busy and crazy week at our house, so hang on...
Monday morning we woke up to find Caleb had passed away in the night. We are not sure what happened, as he was eating and playing before going to bed. No reason to think something was wrong with him!
Remember Mom Bella? She had been at the shelter for over two months, but was adopted this past weekend! Woo Hoo for her!!
The roundworms have gone, but we started seeing some tapeworms...remember the fleas from the other week?
Everyone had to go to the shelter on Tuesday for vaccines and a new dewormer. We also took in a poop sample to make sure Caleb didn't have panleukapenia...negative thank goodness! The shelter has seen a lot of kittens with the deadly disease this year unfortunately. Because we were "suspect" the kittens had their exams in the parking lot! Better safe than sorry.
The kittens took their dewormer and vaccines like champs and have been more perky since then.
They are all starting to play more and eat like piggies!
Regina is our most rambunctious one and loves to try and escape from her room!
Now on to Tanner. I'm writing this on Thursday and he is currently at the vet and will be spending the night. He is so dehydrated that we all felt some IV fluids would be beneficial to him. The vet took some x-rays as well and noticed he has a kidney stone..which seems to be new. He also peed blood while there, but no infection was present, so not real sure why so much blood. He is starting on a different antibiotic to try and help the cold and also now a possible kidney infection. This has me concerned because before his lymphoma last time, he had unexplained blood in his urine then too. Wonder if it is a stone or a tumor? Will ask the vet today when I talk with him.
His blood values looked good still.
We discussed a feeding tube, but that would require a trip to the vet school. We also have to be mindful of sedating him at this point.
The vet is impressed with how "well" he is acting given all that is going on. Now, if only he would eat!!
I hope my boy can pull out another miracle, but he definitely has me worried. We appreciate all the purrs for healing and comfort!
