Hey out there!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello, my name is Krista.
I stumbled across this site while looking for health advice.
Right now I have no cats of my own, but am fostering two kittens from my local animal shelter. We had fostered four before, and after a couple of weeks two were big enough to get fixed and get their vaccinations. The other two, the ones I named Stinky and Bolt, stayed with us for three more weeks while they got their weight up. Just last week we took them back to the local shelter so they could get adopted (much against my will, trust me). I was planning on going back and adopting the two anyways.
Sadly, Stinky (who was our baby from the beginning) got sick somehow in the Cattery and just recently died.
It has hit me very hard, and I am still crying over it. But, I have decided to adopt his brother Bolt. The shelter asked if I would take home one of the other cats we previously fostered to treat their ear mites.
So, hopefully I'll have Bolt in the future. He just needs to get his health back on track.
Anyway, that's my story of my cats. haha. Hello to everyone.
I would write a better intro, but it is 1:30 AM here.

Thanks for the welcome and kind words! I'm going to enjoy finding my way around TCS for sure.
We had to take Bolt to the vet yesterday because he was running a fever and was vomiting. He's dehydrated and isn't eating, and the vet suspects it is panleukopenia, and we're doing everything we can to save him. We have to give him fluid shots twice a day, and are currently force feeding him wet food and Nutrical. We were also told that Pedialyte for kids will help too. Wish us luck!
Thanks again!

Thank you for the TCS good vibes.
But, unfortunately, Bolt didn't make it through the night either.
RIP Bolt.
I'm just upset at the animal shelter. Cattery's can be dangerous. If one cat gets sick, then they all get sick. And they are so overloaded with cats, its like they don't have time to take care of any of them. They were only there a week...

Now I have the one other cat we're fostering left. We named her Mochi. She's okay, she's actually eating and drinking a little, she just has some upper respiratory problems. Hopefully if we keep up with the antibiotics she'll clear up.
