My new sweet girl arrived this morning! When the foster mom delivered her she had pooped in the carrier. She told me she is a nervous type that "doesn't travel well." Since then she has had two small episodes of diarrhea...maybe a tablespoon and one half each time. No visable blood, dark brown, no worms. She hasn't eaten or drank yet, which does not disturb me as Franz did nor eat/drink for almost two days. She is confined to her own room and is sitting in her 2 tier wicker basket, that Franz had no use for. It's partially enclosed so she has a sense of security. As of now, I'm chalking this up to change anxiety. Her skin tugur is fine, so she's so far not dehydrated. The diarrhea episodes happened away from her litter pan. I showed her where it was, let het lay it it, but he is partially blind, remaining eye is cloudy vision, so maybe she could not find it yet. Foster said, no prob with litter pan. Any ideas? Oh she is a year old or just a bit younger, spayed about a week and a half ago.
