Baby Frootbat Report ^^



Well, we are sure all have been waiting for new pix and kitten news, and finally it's Friday, a day off and time for a photo shoot!

The babies are doing well. Wednesday, I was a little worried about Dandelion, the largest orange boykitten. He had a couple of days where he didn't gain grams like he had been, and he began to sound little snuffly. He was still nursing but I had a hard time falling to sleep worrying about him.


So, on Thursday I loaded mom and babies up in a travel tent and took them in to work with me. Everyone got examined and Coco was running a slight fever, so we drew some blood for a CBC, to check for infection. The results were fine, thank goodness. All the babies checked out ok too and by then the Dandi wasn't snuffly, but his lip under his nose was a little inflammed (like ours gets when our noses run). So my vet said, lets put mom on antibiotics and some with get into the milk and to start using an antibiotic eye ointment on the newly opening eyes of the kittens to help with any bacterial infection that might be going on.



I am pleased to say today that everyone is doing fine, and after the little bit of weight loss, Dandi isn't the biggest kitten now...it's Clover, the brown tabby and white boy! And little Daisy is the first one with her eyes completely open...and Dandi, will be the last...his are still tightly closed.



So, without further ado...here's the latest video! Enjoy!!

  12. Just found your blog; can't let you go now. Lovely darlings and the video made me squeak! These are the most special and dear felines! I am currently 'fostering' a Bengal and can relate to the 'airing out the pipes' in the Mancat post! Don't we love them!

  14. OH, I meant to check in much sooner to see if they were born but I've been swamped and save the animal blog, not posting or reading much. I've got a project I've had to focus on. But they're HERE! YAY! YAY! Adorable. I'll have to scroll back to get the story of when it happened.

  15. Oh Miss Teri and Coco! Thank you so much for your love and purrrs on our behalf. We are all home again after some scairty time in the hospital. Daddy is going to be well again... But I am not feeling so fine anymore. You know I had the two week injection five days ago...but my cough is getting worse. Nothing like mucus is coming out. It is very dry. I am eating well and drinking. Mommy is beside herself because she blames my condition on herself. It breaks her heart when I struggle with my raspy cough. She does not want me to even purr anymore because it might set off a coughing spell. Do you think I have a lung infection? If so, is this real bad or can there be medicine to make it better? I am going to the Vet on Monday...thank you for listening. Please convey my very best and happiest wishes to Coco and her precious babies. I am so glad they are all coming along well.
    Your adoring Miss Peach
