I know you are worried sick over this tiny fragile baby. Your close attention to detail is giving him a better chance at life. Yet you need some balance, take time to enjoy these baby days, as they fly by sooner than you think. (You may already be doing this, but your posts are all pretty worried sounding!)
Well, it has been going to the bathroom pretty good since I started it on formula (on Thursday around noon) and I noticed yesterday that it was starting to look more like diarrhea. From what I can read it is the proper color and all. It was kind of like toothpaste and started getting a little bit sloppier. It doesn't seem to be having a problem control it though. It did have an accident on the sheet I have in her box and that was the loosest I have seen it. I only fed it formula at 9:30. I will see if this helps any. She is getting pretty brave, I let her out of her box and she was wondering around, sniffing and exploring. She followed my Dad out to the kitchen chasing his slipper.
Then it wondered over by the piano and I pushed a few keys and about scared her silly
...she was trying to squeeze under the piano, which of course wasn't near enough room.
I have been pretty worried about my kitten since I got it, Mom thinks I am worrying too much over it. Sometimes if it cries when I have fed it and washed it and let it play I just don't know what to do, so sometimes I feel I just have to walk away or lose my sanity! It usually settles down after a few minutes and if I peek it is laying there or it will be sleeping.
I know if this diarrhea keeps up, I could face the danger of it dying from dehyration, so I am trying to keep a pretty close eye. Her skin turgor (picking up a little fold of skin to see how quick it snaps back) seems to be all right.
