Our fostere has just had to take one of her kittens to the vets as an emergency, as he went completely flat - his heart rate is sky high, about 220, so he has had a steroid jab and she has to give him beta blockers twice a day, but it is very touch and go - he is only 6 weeks old. And not only are we very worried about him, and him pulling through, but also for his 2 brothers - these are Kizzy's babies, they haven't had a good life so far - 2 of her 5 babies died before we got them at 2 weeks old, she barely had enough milk so we had to separate mum and babies and Rach has been handrearing these since they were nearly 3 weeks old, and I think it is debatable how much antibodies they got. Apart from being slow on eating, they were doing really well until this, so fingers crossed he can pull through, and the other two will be fine, especially as it is a weekend!!
