She is great, and there are a lot of good tips there.
Here is a quick run-down of Spike's day:
I feed Spike at every 2 1/2 hours, so I can get the recommended daily serving for his weight in him every day. Even during the night. He would probably sleep during the night if I let him, but - he needs approx. for his weight, (6.7 oz,)56cc's daily, and he doesn't eat a whole lot at each feeding.
Spike squeals occasionally around a meal time, but I have to wake him up usually. But he's been more and more active everyday. It's really amazing at how fast the develop, and so worth the effort and work.
Spike is 3 weeks, 3 days, and has been refusing the bottle, so I have been trying some chicken baby food, (no onions), otherwise force feeding him his bottle, as he has to get something in him. After much tested patience, he eats, and I take him to the litter box and stimulate to make sure there's not a poopy (he goes #1 on his own), but he usually poops once every other day, at 10:30 PM on the dot.
This also associates the litter box with pottying. His poop is a yellowish green (vet says normal with the brand of formula he's on), and is a toothpaste consistency.
If you need anything else, feel free to PM me...I'm on at all hours of the day and night..lol
