My coworkers and I found 2 little bundles of fur Saturday. Both were hungry and dirty. One black and one white. The black one was cold to the touch but alive. Called the hubby and kids to come get the babies. Called home every break to check on them. By the time I got home Sat. evening black one was stronger and warm (thanks to electric blanket). Discovered a woov (fly grub) on the black one, tried vicks vapo rub to bring it to surface so I could get it out, did not work. Off we go to the vet after work Monday, got the grub out (bad scene) I hate for animals to be hurt even when it is a have to. I thought they were about 2 weeks by size but vet says closer to 3 weeks as they are almost teething. Vet put the black one on amoxil and has me syringe feeding both science diet a/d. They are little toms. As of last night black had not pooped, would pee up a storm with stimulation but no poo. Finally went today and daughter said it was dark and stank. Off we go to the vet again. Black one since pooping is more lively than he has been all this time. Vet says he might have a tummy infection and to keep up the antibiotic. Their weights are black one 8 ounces and white one 13 ounces. If we had not found them together I would swear the white one was older. No way of knowing what happened to the mother or if she just misplaced them. They were under the dump tank of a vacuum truck on the frame.
