Mrs Ann made this badge for me and that a whole bunch of you are purring and praying for me. I sure do appreciate it.
I almost died and I am only 4 weeks old. It all started Wednesday (September 9th) when Youngest Boy who is awfully nice got us out to play. He noticed I was acting strange. I was having trouble standing up and slid right out of his lap when he was cuddling me. Mommy rushed me to Big Ridge and by the time I got there I was even worse. I couldn't lift my head or swallow and my temperature was very low. They discovered I had Coccidiosis!!!! Even though the stool sample I gave them September 5th was clear. They tried to give me some medicine for it, but I couldn't even swallow it. It looked like I was a goner for sure.
Mommy brought me home and they tried to keep me warm and they tried to get me to swallow, but I just couldn't, then I got diarrhea. Mommy knew that without fluids I wouldn't never make it so she rushed me to the ER vet in Woolmarket. And they gave me fluids and shots for the diarrhea and when I threw up medicine for that too. It was a long..................... long ..........................night but Thursday morning things stared looking up. I started swallowing and eating. The nice vet lady couldn't believe it, she said it was a 180 degree change. I just know it was all the love everyone was sending me and Mommy's promise. See everybody thought I was going to die and Mommy couldn't stand it, so she promised me if I would fight to live she would keep me and love me forever.
I am doing better I am eating a critical care food in addition to my kitten formula. At first I wasn't really interested in eating but finally this afternoon I started acting hungry and actually ate out of the bowl for Mommy. I am taking an antibiotic and a vitamin supplement. Yin and I both are taking Albon for the nasty parasites. I get tired easy and Yin doesn't understand why I don't have the energy to play with her for long. We play for a few minutes but then I just get to tired to play. I usually crawl up in Mommy's lap and sleep while Yin plays. When I start stirring Mommy tries to get me to eat and I eat between napping then Yin finally eats, today we ate together because by that time I had some energy again and stood up to eat instead of eating while laying down. and then she plays some more and I nap some more and then when she finally gets sleepy we both go back in the extra huge dog carrier that Mommy has turned into a kitty suite with a fluffy bed and litter box, and some water. And then Mommy does other stuff like feed the other cats and dogs and laundry and human stuffs while we are sleeping.
I am exhausted now so I will talk to everyone again later. I think I will like blogging. Yang
