We lost CoalYard early this morning. He never did quite "take off" as his brother Guzzler did. We noticed last night his front ankles what would be our wrists were both swollen, I was going to take him to the vet this evening after work. Instead I took the body as a precaution to make sure Guzzler was not in any danger(the babies have not been around our other 2 cats). What he had has a long name but it is an infection that enters through the umbilical. Poor baby did not have a chance. Had he not been on Amoxil last week we would already have lost him. My daughter is heart broken but, our vet bless his heart made sure she understood she has done a wonderful job with my grand kids. Had Guzzler checked "again" and he is thriving.
