She is 10 months old and was a feral kitten I found, at the old grainmill, where I feed a colony of feral cats. She got an ear infection in AUGUST and has been almost constantly on one antibiotic, or another, since then. She has NOT cleared up! I had them do a culture on the ears and they did culture, for gram negative cocci. It showed too, that Zenaquin or Clindamycin were the best antibiotics to use. Well.....she'd already been on Zenaquin for 28 days, prior to that! So, they gave me Clindamycin. Well, she's been on that for 18 days now, and is STILL not better! So, I called the Vet and told him we HAVE to do something, but, my big question is, does he think, that even though she was tested negative for Feline Leukemia, does he think she might actually be positive? OR, how about FIV?? Well, he said she could be tested for both. I am cringing, about the continueing costs, as I have put SO much $$$ into her already, with all the Vet visits and she's STILL not well! She is just the most darling little thing! Just so full of fun and mischief and loves her Mommy (ME! ) I bottle fed her, when I found her, and so she DOES think I am her Mum! They are taking her in for a few days starting Monday, to observe her and to flush her ears out, under anesthesia and possibly FINALLY figure out what is wrong with my little furbaby. I just want her to feel good. That is not too much to ask, with how short her time on earth has been, so far! I had to put my Spikey to sleep, just a little over a year ago. Spikey was Katy's "Uncle"... (though she never met him!) So any kind or positive thoughts are so, so welcomed! THANKS!
