Thank you for all your tips about feeding them and treating their upset tummies!
Sorry about the large pictures - I'm on dialup too so I should know better, but you know how it goes when you're excited... Monday Night Update
Slooty has had a great day - lots of play, lots of food, and some nice BMs. Her eyes look great and we're very happy with her energy level. She's getting a small amount of Whiskas wet kitten tuna with some dry Purina Kitten chow mixed in when she demands it - which was 5 times today. No vomiting or diarrhea of any kind.
Luna hasn't done as well as Slooty. She's alternated between vary vocal periods where she parks in front of the kitchen sink on the floor(?) and cries and periods where she's just a white fuzzy bump on the bed comforter. We've been giving her plenty of goat's milk when she cries, and she takes it without complaint, but she's still having very bad diarrhea in her litterbox. We've clipped nearly all the hair away from her poor bottom and swoop down with babywipes after every litter trip, but her poor poor bottom...
We were unable to get ahold of our Vet today, she wasn't answering her cellphone and didn't return our calls. Hopefully she just had the day off or was busy and we can get in touch with her tomorrow.
We're worried about Luna, and frustrated. She's not getting worse but she doesn't seem to be getting better, and it tugs on our heartstrings to see her sitting on the bed with her legs all drawn under her staring off into space for hours on end. We're giving her as much TLC as we can, but her condition seems stubbornly resistant to change.
Tomorrow we will try the boiled chicken & rice/potato slurry for her to try and firm up her BMs a bit unless someone has a better suggestion.

Right now Slooty is getting the Whiskas Kitten Tuna wetfood with some dry Purina Friskies Kitten mixed in. Luna is getting goat's milk and diarrhea
That's all I've got for tonight. We will try again tomorrow to get with the Vet about deworming. In the meantime we'll be doing our best to comfort Luna and take care of her tiny bottom.
Slooty's doing great though!
Goodnight everyone! We love you all!
