I've had my 3 foster babies for a while now: Lex, Kenzie & Keiko. When i first got Lex (ragdoll mix around 2 1.2 - 3wks....he was sick and bairly hanging on- now he is completely well and fat as a little piglet. Kenzie & Keiko are around 2 weeks old from black dsh's. Kenzie is the runt...but she and keiko both have put on a healthy amount of weight since i've had tem. I just got done feeing them a few minutes ago (it's 4am) and i noticed Kenzie was sneezing a little bit. (no bubbles or fluid in her lungs from her feedings- i'm very very careful with her). Her eye has also been pretty bad since i've been fostering her (when a good samaritan found the kittens- some boys had killed the momma and were in the process of hurting the kittens - well, they scratched up Kenzie's eye..and the bad thing is, it was just when her eyes were naturally starting to open- so she's had issues with her left eye ) All three kittens have alredy been to the vet- i have been giving them clavamox 2x/ day and their eye ointment 2x a day as well...however, i don't think it's helping little Kenzie enough, and since she started sneezing a bit tonight ( she hasn't had a bath lately(just baby wipes)- i'm waiting for her to improve before i bathe her...she hasn't been chilld- there is a heating pad and warm fleecy blankets in their carrier and i monitor the temperature...and to my knowledge since i'm very careful on how i feed my kittens, she shouldn't have any milk or anything in her lungs- so she shouldn't be sneezing.)So seeing how i'm a concerned little foster momma, and i want to rule out any potential medical issues- i'm calling the shelter tomorrow to arrange for one of the vets to check her out...while i'm there i'm also going to arrange for Lex & Keiko to be examined as well just to be on the safe side. It's 4 am now, so when they open in the morning i'm calling and will have the babies checked out just to be safe. Please send my little furbabies some good vibes! They've been through the mill- i don't want those little ones to get ill on top of that as well. I'll keep everyone posted on what the vet says tomorrow.
