Ugh, so I made the announcement today about my new adoption. I cannot wait to get him on Saturday!!! Anyways, I go to college here in BG and had an exam tonight. I went out there early and parked over in this stadium lot for a minute to review my notes. I look up and see this little tiny kitty! I drove over to where she was and tried to get her to come to me. She wouldn't and ran up by the building in a corner. I very slowly approached her and finally got a hold of her. She ended up scratching my face and biting my finger. I held her in my arms and took her to my car. I had a cat carrier in my car (just in case) and put her in there. Couldn't believe I looked down and my finger was bleeding so bad but I didn't care. I know she only did that because she was scared. I would do the same thing!!! She calmed down and I took her straight over to my vet's where my mom works too. She didn't make a peep she just sat in the carrier. Of course, I am already loving her. I had to leave her so they could look at her and I ran to class to take my test. Well, I am sure I failed it because all I could think about was her. Oh well. I went back to see her and my vet said she has a bad upper respiratory infection. She is about 3 mts old. My vet said she is concerned about how skinny she is. She ran a feluke test and it was negative (thank god) but my vet is still very concerned. She was skinny like my little punkin who just passed away. But I'm thinking, well she is only about 3 mts old and probably hasn't had much to eat so of course she would be skinny right???
My vet wants to keep her there for observation for a little while before I would take her home. I wanted to take her home tonight and nurse her and love her and get her better but my vet said it wasn't a good idea since I am getting my new boy on Saturday, we need to make sure she is going to get better first and clear up her respiratory situation.
The girls that work up there besides my mom know me really well and are very good to me. The one girl said tonight, "hon, after what you just went through with punkin being so sick, I think you should wait to see if this kitten gets better first"
I hated leaving her there but I am glad she is not outside now at least and will have a warm bed, food, water and medicine. They are going to worm her tomorrow and start some meds for the infection tonight.
Thanks so much for listening......... give me your thoughts.
