Prayers need for sick kitty

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Hello, We found a stray 8 week old kitten we named Neumann on Saturday barely holding on to life. He is completely dehydrated and anemic with maggots coming out of his nose. He also was completely flea and worm infested with conjuctivitis and an upper respitory infection. We took him home from the hospital Saturday night and fed him baby food and cat milk through a dropper every hour. We also gave him eye ointment and antibiotics. By Sunday morning we saw small signs of improvement however by Sunday evening his condition worsened dramatically and he could not even stand. We took him back to the hospital overnight where they ran a battery of tests including complete blood work. Today we took him from the hospital to the vet where they gave him an x -ray and gave him nutrition intravenously. His prognosis remains grave. He is sleeping constantly. They can't find anything wrong with him other than he is extremely malnourished and is having a hard time bouncing back. The vet gave him a 50/50 chance of survival this morning. We know everyone's prayers will be the difference maker at this point. Please pray for Neumann's surrvival. Wishing everyone the best! Torri and Eric

Oh poor baby, i hope he gets better


Silly question about the maggots in his nose, does the vet say they were just laid there and escaping, or does kitty have some sort of wound in his nose/sinus cavity?

Poor bub

Eric found him while playing basketball and no one was going to do anything, It was 100 degrees here saturday he would've died then had he not taken him straight to hospital, he's about 8-10wks and only 2lbs. Its so sad,the last thing we need is 6 cats but if he makes it he's going to be a spoiled little brat just like the rest of our boys...FAT TOO!!!

Hi everyone, THANK YOU ALL SOOOO MUCH! We are not out of the woods yet but today I got to spend about and hour alone with Neuman. I was suprised and excited to see his eyes open as the have not been much since saturday. He is still extremley lathargic but he was enjoying being touched and pet even streching out his legs quite a few times! He even lifted his back paw at one point so I could pet his belly! He would start to fall asleep then open his eyes real wide to make sure I was still there. He was also slightly responding to noises in the other room. Unfortunatley Eric had a Dr's appt. and misses all this. I gave the vet a charm I have of a praying angel and they put it on his cage for us. Now for the really good part... I just talked to one of the vet techs and she told me he took a couple bites of food on his own after i left,then they administered a feeding tube just to make sure he got a little more, as of this morning he was still not taking food so this make us very happy.At 8;00 he will get some more.Please keep praying for our little " South Paw" Neuman. I know your love and prayers has gotten him this far!!!

Neuman is comming home tommorrow! The last two days he has been doing fantastic. He is purring,meowing,and making muffins! He's still not eatting on his own so we will have to feed him every 4 hours but its just a matter of time.He still has an upper respitory infection so he still cant smell the food. The vet gave him an antihistimine that will also help stimulate his appitite.He will still be on plenty of medication, but we are just so thankful he's alive.The vet and her staff are calling it a miracle but I know it was everyones prayers and good vibes!Thank you all who were pulling for him. The staff has absolutlely fallen in love with him, they say he his so sweet and cute. Eric and I cant wait to spoil him and give him the life he never had. I bought him a plush new bed, and he wont know what hit him when he see's the amount of toys we have,not to mention jungle gyms, tunnels etc.Thank you all again we will let you know how he is,and send pics soon!

Oh this is wonderful! I just found this thread, and when I read your original post, I thought the worst -- we just had some foster kittens a couple of months ago who had maggots, and they had to be enemas and a dose of worming medicine... and one of them still didn't make it, bless her heart. But it sounds like this baby is going to do fine! Thank goodness... and many many vibes for your little one...

Hi everybody, I'm so excited I cant stand it. Neuman is the cutest sweetest kitten ever. He purrs so loud gives the best headbutts, and meows for attention constantly.No wonder everyone at the vet wanted him. He's asleep in my bathrobe right now. He loves to be close to you body.( someone once told me kittens like to feel your heart beat) Anyway he is on Flagyl for diarreha,clindymayacin for the upper res. infection,and albon(?) for a parasite. Heres the problem he's eatting but not drinking water, He was never tought how,so I'm giving it to him in an eyedropper and literly trying to show him how to drink out of the bowl, but i dont know what else to do. Any suggestions? He still cant smell so maybe it just a matter of time???

If nothing else once he can be around other cats he will figure it out from them. Sounds like he is well on the road to being well.

Sending a to watch over you all
