It was all going so well...until this morning.
The last few days JinJin has been doing really well. In fact Friday she actually played
! Which anyone who has taken in an adult feral can tell you that is a huge, huge deal! I was thrilled.
This morning poor Jin came walking up near me, sticking her tongue in and out of her mouth & threw up (which frankly was a bit of a relief, I thought she might be having a seizure), then ran to the litter box, trailing diarrhea along the way.
Already late for work, I cleaned it up quickly & called the vet when I got to work. He thinks that since it was such a sudden onset, that something she ate might have caused it. I did give her a bit of water from tuna the night before (which I have given to other kitties as a treat & never had a problem). He suggested either taking away her food & water for a day (too late, I was already at work), or cooking her a bland diet of chicken or turkey with rice or potato, or turkey baby food. When I got home tonight, I boiled up some chicken & potatoes & mashed them up. So far so good, so I hope it was a temporary set back. The dinner was a huge hit with her & the babies, and I even had to give some to the other two 'cause they were causing such a stink about being left out!
