Name my kitten! - Page 2

post #31 of 48
Forgot to say, I think he looks like and Archie.

He's a beautiful boy. I love the red tabbies.

Names. Just to be different, what about using a brand name for a power tool for his name. Something like, Mcculloch (chain saws), Ryobi (drills) or Rockwell (power saws)? I really like Rockwell, it could be shortened to Rocky.

Still thinking about a name.

Whoever he is though, he's got to go to the vet. He's sneezing, coughing, and barely eating. The eating probably will take care of itself, but the sneezing and coughing need to be addressed ASAP. I think it's a URI from the humane society. Poor little guy is a trooper just like Ally. Sick, hungry, probably in pain from surgery, and yet wants to play with me and is purring a lot.

Yes yes yes to the vet visit. If he is congested and cannot smell he is not likely to eat much if at all.

Yeah, if you're a tool dude that's a really cool choice, IMO. I like Ryobi.

Didn't the humane society give him something for the URI? Poor little kitty. It's good that he's separated from Ally. My cats outside are all sick and I'm paranoid about Cammy getting sick.

for your new boy. Hope he gets well soon.

All they gave me to give him was lysine (an amino-acid) to supposedly help fight against or recover from a URI (I can't remember which).

I didn't think it would be enough and now he's on an antibiotic.

As for the name, I have to admit that when I made that list, I was leaning towards Charlie or Jeffrey. I added Ollie in that list as I was just thinking of names that end with a "ee" sound. I really wasn't even considering it, but now after spending time with him for the last 24 hours, he seems like an Ollie for some reason. Maybe it has something to do with so many people liking it.

As long as Ally and Ollie don't get confused with each other's names, he's Ollie.

Thanks for all the help guys. I liked Sonny and Rusty too, but for whatever reason, he seems like an Ollie to me. If they get confused though, I'll change it to Sonny (he's orange and his eyes have this interesting coloration that looks like a sunburst so it fits).

OMG look how skinny he is! Poor little guy.

I voted for Micky but I like Sonny (that's what I used to call my kitten Sonic)

Yeah. He is too skinny. I'm working on it.

I've been spending lots of time trying to coax him to eat. I found today that he seems to prefer eating wet food off of my finger than out of the bowl. So I guess I'll just sit with him and feed him until he feels comfortable to eat out of a bowl or off of a plate.

I also stopped the purina one b/c he just isn't eating it at all and am going to try Wellness to see if he will eat that for dry food. Ally loves Wellness kitten dry food. Maybe he will too.

You could probably keep giving him lysine too, for a while, build up his little immune system.

Oh yeah, sorry - I should have said that. He is still on the lysine. He will be on it until I use up the little bag of it the humane society gave me.

Should Ally be on it too? I've been reading online that the herpes virus that most commonly causes URIs is in almost every cat and that L-Lysine helps the immune system suppress it. There are even sites that recommend life-long lysine supplementation.

I give Cammy lysine since the outside kitties are sick. It wouldn't hurt to have Ally on it, especially since Ollie is sick.

Any idea where I can buy more of it? Is it vet only, or do they sell it at Petsmart, Petco, or Pet Supermarket?

It's not a controlled substance, but then again neither is Feliway and that seems to be vet only.

Petco might have lysine treats, if not you could order some online. You can also get pills from Walmart, Target, Walgreens, any pharmacy place. (They're for humans too, BTW, if you ever get a canker sore, they're supposed to help) But they come in 500 or 1000 miligrams. Kittens only need about 250 milligrams. When I give them to my cats I crush them up with a rolling pin and mix it in soft food. I hear they come in capsule form too, which would be easier but I couldn't find any. Too much lysine give them diarrhea I think.

That's awesome that you have so much patience with 'Ollie'! So sweet!

Really?! I must get some there then. I looked but must have missed it while there.

I will explore the above mentioned options for my little girl.
