The little one now is nine days and hold and still hanging in there. I really want to name him, but that's up to Millie. I was thinking Frankie (for St. Francis of Assisi, whom I've been praying to a lot this week).

Still no luck find a surrogate mother. Millie has decided that if the kitten makes it through the weekend, she's going to see if we can wean our oldest litter of kittens (almost 7 weeks) a little early, and hope their mama will accept and nurse him.

Thanks everyone for your continued prayers for this little guy. I'll try to get a picture of him tonight.

Our little guy is really in need of prayers. He was sneezing and very congested last night, so Millie suspects he now has an upper respiratory infection. He's eating well, but is pretty weak. He's 10 days old today and is starting to open his eyes. Millie doesn't seem very optimistic about his chances for survival, but is determined to do all she can for him. Please keep the prayers/vibes coming for this little one.

I have everything crossed for the poor little mite, and for the mum cat too.

The little guy, Frankie (it's officially his name now) was at the vet this morning and definitely has an upper respiratory infection. He's being treated and is eating well, but the concern is that the infection will reach his lungs. If so, he doesn't have a chance. In the midst of this we found a surrogate mom for him at one of the shelters whose three are 2 1/2 weeks old. Just about the right age for him and he needs other kitties! Unfortunately, he can't be exposed to her or the other kittens right now. Please send all the prayers/vibes you can spare that Frankie pulls through. The good news is that his mom, Mia, is growing stronger and eating well on her own. Thanks!

Just wanted to update everyone on Frankie, our little fighter! The URI has left him very weak. To give his foster mom a bit of a break he's temporarily in the care of one of the founders of a local no kill shelter, who's seen many newborn kittens through their first few weeks of life. Frankie is being tube fed and, in spite of how weak he is, still has a good appetite. His foster moms feel the next couple of days are critical if he's going to survive. Thanks so much for the prayers for Frankie and please keep them coming!

Way to go Frankie - keep fighting. I wanted to thank you, Eileen - I "forgot" about St. Francis. I hadn't thought of praying for our little kitties to him, don't know why. But that's my plan now. Hugs, Kim.

I hope the little guy makes it, he sounds like a strong little fighter!

Just got the news that Frankie made it through the night. He's still weak, but stable, and had a good size BM. His foster mom thinks this is a good sign. I hope this little guy makes it. It's going to be just devastating to his foster mom if he doesn't. Thanks for the continued prayers!

Well, our little guy hit the two week mark on Tuesday and is still hanging on and still in need of prayers. His full name is now Carson Francis (big name for such a little guy). He's continuing to amaze his foster moms and our vet with his will to live. Unfortunately, he's now developed aspiration pneumonia and there's real concern about damage to his lungs. The good news is that he's actually gained a little weight and continues to have good appetite. His mama, Mia, is growing stronger everyday and should be well enough to be spayed in few weeks. Will keep everyone posted.

Thank you for keeping us posted. I loved reading your post this morning. It made me smile to know that Frankie is doing well.
post #46 of 57
Little Carson Francis, who has touched so many hearts, will be in my prayers.
post #47 of 57
Poor guy is such a fighter. I will prayer he makes it.
post #48 of 57
My 6 yr old bottle baby had the aspiration problem, too. Twice I took her to the vet for tiny lasik (for fluid on the lungs- they gave her a needleful-just the metal part-they had to do that to get her the tiniest amount possible) and antibiotic shots, and she is a healthy little horse now . I will pray for your baby cat.

Just wanted update everyone on Mia. Even though we couldn't save her kittens Mia is now healthy. She was spayed last week and will be returned to her site tomorrow where she'll be safe and well cared for. Thanks to all for your prayers and support for Mia and her kittens. This was the first litter Millie has lost and it very emotional for everyone involved. But, thanks to little Frankie and his siblings, there were many connections made and lessons learned that will enable to provide even better care to newborn kittens in the future. Thanks again.

No, sadly we lost Frankie when he was 17 days old:

I'm sorry to hear about your pregnant momma. Is she being monitored by a vet? That could make all the difference. The problem we ran into with Mia is that she was trapped just a few days before her kittens were born. There just wasn't time to get her stabilized and between the uterine infection (which we didn't know about at first) pneumonia and a very difficult labor, she was too weak to care for her kittens.

Please don't be scared. I'll be praying for you and your sweet kitty.

I.m so sorry..what a loss......
Yes, she is being followed by my vet..due any day...the shelter wanted to abort her kittens but I talked them into letting me take her..that was three weeks ago.... they didnt even know she was sick. Her temp was 105.6 almost two weeks ago. Shes improving..but still sneezing alot and sniffling.
I'm concerned her kittens will get this....the vet says at's a toss uo whether to leave the kittens with momma or not....she may have antibodies to this which she can pass to them. My own cats now have a cold but havent been nearly as sick as Patches.......Was Mia running a temp? I'm glad she's better...thanks for letting me know about Frankie.....
post #54 of 57
When Skittles had URI she had a temp and she was 2 weeks in to the preg... at 6 1/2 weeks she was 100% better... Vet said the kittens should be ok
post #55 of 57
Oh good!! I know you had mentioned a uri before to.....I was wondering but didnt want to scare you!
post #56 of 57
Hopefully she has them soon and we can see how the kittens are...
post #57 of 57
I am glad that mum is now healthy, such a shame about the poor kits. I am glad you have made some good connections though, it means that they didn't die in vain.
