Worried about the little girl - Page 2  

post #31 of 44
How has the mom been eating? If she's not getting enough nurishments than it could be contributing to the low milk production. Maybe try vitamins for mom and baby. Hopefully your sister will be able to care for her, but if her current cat has fleas than Pink will have to be secluded from them as fleas, on an already underweight/possibly unhealthy cat, can be VERY bad and possibly even kill her. I know you want to do what's best for her while, at the same time doing what's good for your family, so just call the vet, they shouldn't charge for a phone consult and if you explain your situation they might be able to advise you what'd be best, and least costly, for you to do for her.

It's Pink & Mango that have fleas. I bathe them everyday & just treated Peaches with another dose of flea meds (what our vet suggested). Pink has actually had very few fleas on her, it's Mango that's had them badly. I moved their crate last week to a new area with NO carpet or other fabrics other then their blanket. I had hoped that would have worked but they still had fleas today.

It's not the fleas that are making pink sick, Mango has them too & worse. Pinks hair is allot longer though & takes me more time to find the fleas, I wish I could shave her

Peaches was very sick with diarrhoea a few weeks ago but she's all better now thanks to her pro-biotics. She eats voraciously.

What is the difference between the golden and the white?
I'll add that to the shopping list with the gelatin maybe I'll just get hubby to pick up KMR on the way home from work, that seems simpler.

Thanks!!

Hi,

I think it would be a bad idea to separate the kitten from its mom unless there is absolutely no other way.

There is no other way

MY cats have fleas. Sorry, my typo. It's really not what I want either but my sisters roommate is allergic to cats. Pink will be back with mom on monday.

This kitten is severely under weight and doesn't seem to be gainig weight either- so something is clearly wrong and you should have a vet take a look at her and start additionally bottle feeding the kitten.
I agree, kittens go downhill so fast and the weight of this kitten shows something is wrong. Please don't waste time on home remedies and internet advice when this kitten needs a vet, it's part of raising kittens.

OKAY. I am also trying to figure out where she's going this weekend, get Tasha in and about a million different things, it's only been about 3 hours guys .

Anyway, I just worked it out with my sister so Pink, Mango & Peaches are ALL going to her place for the weekend . Apparently her roommate isn't REALLY allergic & is excited the kittens are coming Some people!! *sigh*

As I mentioned she is still running around, playing with Mango and generally being a kitten. She's also well hydrated. I really appreciate everyone's concern. I assure you, if she shows ANY signs of being sick or unwell I will do something about getting her to the vet immediately.

For right this minute, she's okay!

Hi,

good that they will stay together this weekend , will your sister be able to get to a vets if she goes down hill? And do you think she'll be able to bottle feed the kitten? Pink hasn't been eating solid food up to now, right?

Yes & Yes. I already discussed with her that it's going to be a bit of work taking care of pink, but my sister has a cold so she won't be going anywhere this weekend anyway - so she'll be staying in with the cats . Actually she's REALLY excited to care for them, she hasn't had a cat since she move to university (again "allergic" roommate), she has 3 at home (IN Toronto still) but misses them terribly.

There are TONS of 24/7 vets in Toronto (where we are headed) it won't be a problem getting her to a vet. Hopefully I can sort something out so my vet will have a chance to see her before we go though :S.

I'm already packing up the things she's going to need :S.

Extra towels
Kitty litter/litter tray
Bowls
Food
Toys
Syringe
The KMR when I get it

Pink just pooped (in my hand!!! ) it looked perfectly normal, no worms or anything, just small.

Tried to get her to the vet today, but just couldn't do it. We'll try again tomorrow before we have to leave. BUT.

She ate 1/3 cup of KMR for dinner, yum yum! Then peed then pooped on me! So the plumbing is definitely working :S. I'll be feeding her again around 11pm tonight then try to get in an early morning feed if I can.

Thanks for all the suggestions guys, I'll try to keep you posted.

I have no words.

I tried to get her into the vet but we just couldn't make it in time. She seemed perfectly fine at 8:00 last night. When I went to get her to feed at 11, I could tell she wasn't well. There are no emergency clinics in town, all I could do was make her comfortable and hope. It wasn't enough.

My beautiful little pinky dinky, I'm so sorry, I should have taken her to the vet 3 days ago - I didn't think anything was wrong, that she was just small.
