Busy busy! Kitten pic

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Well tomarrow my fuzzies will be 2 weeks old. My how time flies. Anyway ive been kinda MIA the past couple of days. Been running around alot. But im never too busy to get pictures of my fuzzies!




They are all doing great! But their ears are still plugged up, is that normal?

Oh and can a kitten get parvo? And if so how can i treat it? None of my kittnes show any signs but right now parvo is coming outta the ground. As we are just now melting. And if my puppy catches it, which he can, he might give it to the cat who can give it to her kittens, IF they can get parvo. Which is why i ask.

I don't THINK they can get Parvo. It's all over the place, and that's why you have to get your puppies shots, but I think it's specific to canines.

Silver I think I might call my vet but he isn't there today. I also noticed that I have never read anything on cats getting it.

I don't think cats can get it, I think it's strictly a canine thing.

Boy oh boy are they precious or what

Our puppy died a couple of months ago from Parvo. I asked the vet because I was worried about my cats. He said it was a dog specific disease. Dogs and cats don't share many things, except for URI's and fun stuff like that. Oh, they share the fact that they both steal our hearts.

I posted the question into the heath forum, I found out that parvo is a virus that does effect cats, but in a different way. So im gonna have to go and get the Parvo booster for my dog tomarrow. ( soonest ill have ANY money) I dont want them getting sick, and we allready had parvo scare 2 weeks ago with the puppy.

you really don't want your baby kittens to get distemper (what they could get if your puppy or you bring in parvo or feline distemper).
I lost two 9 week old kittens to what we believe was distemper and from what i've read about it, if a young kitten gets it, their chance of survival is very slim without hospitalization, and even then i think the mortality rate is about 75%. Plus, it's expensive, we spent about $450 trying to save our two.

I agree, which is why im going to get Kozmo the booster to help prevent it. With the amount of animals in my area, and that my family has. i dont really want to get it in my house.
