Brendan and I could really use some vibes!!!

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
Well, Brendan called me this morning at 9 am saying he thought there was something wrong with his new kitten. I asked him what she was doing and apparently she had been howling for about an hour and had thrown up twice. I looked up her vet info and let him call and make an appointment. Little Hida has an appointment for 10:30 this morning and I'll be the one taking her (I told Brendan to go to class as usual and just make sure I had access to the kitten so I could come and get her). I'm hoping it's not anything serious, after all she had just been to the vet one week ago for her first vet visit. But of course it just makes us both very nervous. Poor Brendan was sounding so upset on the phone. The only thing that had been wrong with her from the last vet visit was that she had ear mites, and Brendan had been treating that properly ever since. So please, if you have any to spare, send some of those magic board vibes you all have! We really want Hida to be ok and to perhaps have just had an upset tummy!

Thanks guys. We really appreciate it.

Well I just got back from the vet a few minutes ago. It didn't go so well. They ended up doing a radiograph on her as well as some bloodwork and it looks like she's having a problem with her kidney's. The vet gave us medicine and food in case it's a urinary tract infection, but it was obvious that that is not what she thinks it is likely to be. If the medicine doesn't work in a day or two the prospects are pretty grim. Please keep sending us super TCS vibes. We really, really need it to just be a urinary tract infection. Thanks for all of your support already! It really means a lot to us. I'll let you all know how things end up.

You guys really are the best. It makes me feel so good knowing you guys are all here for her and for us. Thank you all so much. Eddie, thank you for saying such a sweet thing in your comment. It was truly very nice of you.

We're waiting to see what she's like in the morning. Still hoping for just a UTI.

Ok so I've got a bit of an update. Like I said, yesterday at the vet we decided to try the UTI medication in hopes she would be the small percentage of kittens that young who get one. They gave her a shot to calm her stomach and gave us some antibiotics to give to her as well as some special food to help with it. As soon as I got her back to Brendan's house I gave her both her antibiotic and switched her to her new food. Little Hida was understandably tuckered out from her stressful morning and fell asleep on top of my sandals. A little bit later Brendan and I left to swing by my place (mind you, I left with no shoes as I didn't want to wake Hida lol) and when we came back Hida was in a total playful mood! She played (and played HARD) for probably about an hour. She was even letting us touch her side (where the doctor could not touch without her screaming in pain). Of course this made both Brendan and I happy, but we remained cautious as we didn't want to get our hopes up and have the problem not be solved. So, as the vet had said, if she's not better by late Thursday or Friday then it's not a UTI. SHe told us that if it was a bigger problem she would become more lethargic and eventually would want to do nothing but sleep. When I left little Hida was curling herself up between Brendan's legs for the night. I called Brendan as soon as I woke up this morning to see how she was doing. Apparently when he woke up she was curled up tight in his armpit, and once she woke she started into a massive play session again. Brendan called the vet to get their opinion of the situation and according to the vet we should be "cautiously optimistic." He mentioned that he was surprised that she had made such a turn around yesterday and that we might have "dodged the bullet on this one." Of course he said to monitor her because we're not in the clear yet. He also recommended that if she continued to do well we take her in for another of the same shot they gave to her yesterday. Brendan agreed and also added that if she keeps doing well he'll take her in for more bloodwork to check her levels (a couple of things had been "high normal" yesterday). So, we're excited, but still trying not to be too excited. I'm really hoping that we did in fact come out of this without anything serious, but I'm certainly not letting my guard down!

I'm going to ask for continued vibes, because I have no doubt that it's TCS vibes and the prayers from our friends that have gotten her this far! Thank you all so much for what you've done already. It means the world to us.

(Sorry it's long, I just wanted to give you guys a full update.)

That is really great Katherine. I hope Hida is okay in the end. She might just be a special care kitty. Its great that she was playful and feeling a little better. Brendan sounds like a good kitty dad. More vibes for Hida. HB's from Meishka.
