I don't think he's going to make it. You may have read my saga about my foster family (under urgent: kitty diarrhea). Well the virus seems to have taken it's toll on each of the kittens, and none moreso then little archie now. He has both diarrhea and vomiting. The rescue director took him in for sub-q fluids yesterday and he sort of perked up, but last night he took a major dive. I've been trying desparately to get fluids into him and to keep him going, but i don't know what else to do. The rescue director is calling the vet again and he'll probably go in again. I just don't know how long to drag this suffering on. He's in so much pain. Poor mamma can't even comfort him very well as she's still trying to get over the calici virus that had her mouth swollen open for 48 hours. To make it worse i'm stuck here at work wishing i could be there holding him.
