when you are going to sit down and let her crawl into your lap, have a small litter box there - in your lap
I will try that. It makes sense. Why had I not thought of it before! What medications does she take, for what and for how long has she been taking them?
She is on a pink liquid by mouth. I think it is like a pencillin, an antibiotic. The vet said she looked like she had ringworm so he gave me this plus an oitment to rub on her spots.I suspect she might also have been a bit frightened or stressed while you were bathing her.
Maybe a little but per the vets instructions she has been getting frequent baths anyways so I think she is kinda used to them by now. She does not purr when she gets a bath but she seldom fights me while I am doing it except when I have to get around her face. Some of the ringworm spots are there and whenever I wipe her face with a wet or dry rag she acts just like a kid and hollors about it. But when I wipe her bottom with the warm wet washcloth while I am bathing her she goes and goes.get a good, high-quality canned food
Last night I tried the food again. This time I crunched the science diet and a tiny bit of meat from the stew we had for supper and then made it into a thick soup with warm milk. I fed her with a baby spoon and she ate three or four kitty size bites of it before she lost interest.
I will get her some canned babyfood today and try that.Do you have any other cats?
Yes. Luke is my other house cat. He sniffs around the kitten but really has no interest in him other than scolding me when I make the kitten cry and when the kitten heads towards him he moves away.are you 100% absolutely certain the dogs won't harm her, even in play?
Jock is only 2 so we are very careful to be right there with them when they are together. Right now Jock mainly watches the kitten or when we are on the floor with her he will mimic our moves trying to play too. He is the only one that will let the kitten get close to him but right now he is afraid of her a little. When she tries to cuddle and play right next to him he will move away but he will touch noses with her and has licked her a couple of times.Just be patient with her, give her some time to mature a bit and show her what you want her to do.
Thank you for your responces. I look at the charts on what they should be doing at this age and read what others say thier Kittens are doing and I am concerned that we are doing something wrong that is causing her to be slower than she should be in her development. Her next vet trip is on Friday. I will ask them about dehydration and electrolites or should I go sooner? Is there a sign to look for a serious problem?
