Blink started going downhill this morning. Laying apart from her sisters and not eating, she would try to use the litterbox but was unsuccessful. I watched her with growing concern and when she spiked a fever, off we went.
Apparently she has been struck by something or someone and her back end is bruised and sore.
The vet said the injury occurred very early in her life and he is hoping with time she will grow out of it. She also was lousy with parasites, so all the kittens (I took everyone in) got wormed again. She got a kitty enema and I was given instructions to watch her to be sure she doesn't bind up again.
She has a funny way about her when she walks, before she sits down, she stretches her back legs way out in front of her and plops to the ground, then she wiggles back and forth like a dog does with impacted anal glands. The vet said movement of any kind back there must be causing her pain.
She is really to young to put on any type of meds, and so she is on my watch.
Thanks for your prayers and positive thoughts- those were a few scary moments this morning.
