Kitten Fall

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Ahh man im so worried

I have a 7 week old kitten called Miya. She loves to run around, so I usually open my door so she can get a bit more running room. She oftern tires me out so I sat around and checked my emails.
I hear a crash and a loud meaw and I run to see that she had fallen off the stairs. I have no idea how it happened. But we do have another cat who might have gotten anoyed at all her running.
Either way she fell between 6 - 10 feet. Upon closer inspection she didnt have anything broken. Just very shaken. I took her back to my room and checked to see if she could walk ok and there were no pains. She seemed fine and walked strait to the litter tray. She had done the most poo I had ever seen. Three times more then a usual passing at least.
I then took her to the bed and she just slept. I was worried about her so I would do a little check. At around 2am she was up and eating and drinking. She didnt seem 100% but I beleved she was still shaken up.
However the next day (today) things have started to go downhill. She has not eaten anything. Wet or dry. She has been pooing a lot. I beleve it is diarrhea but her stools are solid and no blood. And she is generally rather sluggish.

Here is a picture of the poor thing.

I'm glad you're getting her to a vet.

I hope everything is OK. Give us an update as soon as possible.

She is adorable!

I hope she`s going to be ok and it`s nothing serious. She could have damaged something internally, I guess.

Keep us updated!

Things are looking better

Went to the vet and I have never seen Miya so quite. The vet was great. It was not the same one that de-flea and wormed her last time I was there.
She asked a lot of questions which made me feel relaxed as she was trying to help.
She did a lot of tests. Checked her thoroughly for broken bones. Checked her temperature which was a new experience for poor Miya 0_o
The vet beleved its just brusing and a bit depressed. So she was given a pain killer to help relaxe her more. We where given a cat protien milkshake thing that is like a soup but is filled with protien to help sick cats.
It all came to 30 pounds (around 50 - 60 dollars for you Amiricans)
Once she was back home she was a different cat. The shot helped her so much. She was looking more lively and less slugish. She ate the milkshake thing like there was no tomorrow. Now she has just eaten dry food again which made me feel better.

Yey eating

Thanks guys and I will see you around the forum.

Thank goodness for that! If she's now eating that's a great sign, I hope she continues to improve

Very interesting post.
Glad she is doing better.
Thought cats land on their feet as opposed to dogs.

We all worry when any little thing happens to our babies and this was a very big thing so of course we understand your concern. Thanks for taking such good care of her.
