Another Day....

Two of the scaredy cats were adopted on Saturday: Speedy (the lighter grey - who turns out was a female) and Curious George (the largest kitten).  :)

Well, mom got to bring Amaretto home on Sunday night. The v-e-t called Sunday morning while Mom was at Petco to give her the full story. They drained the abcess and got her temp down Friday night. Then overnight she got hypothermic and they had to bring it back up. She was eating and seemed ok. But then the vet found another abcess on her side. They ran an ultrasound probe and think they see some on her liver as well. They lanced both abcesses and will reasess. They decided to leave her Saturday night. Mom brought her home Sunday night.....

She has to put a warm compress on two spots and flush them really well 3x per day (Miss DeLynn agreed to help with the one mid-day since Mom has this job thing). Amaretto is on clavamox for the moment. The v-e-t is running a fecal test to see if something is giving some of them the runs and restricting them from growing faster. And back to the v-e-t on Wednesday. They should have test results today or tomorrow and hopefully they will give everyone a better idea as to how to proceed. The v-e-t this morning gave mom three options: 1. stay in hospital and put her on iv antibiotics presuming they will help; 2. send her home and wait for test results (which is what we decided to do); or 3. euthanization. Everyone agreed that we aren't there right now.....

For now she is in this:
And will be there for at least a few days. The v-e-t said she wasn't acting very lively, but mom put her down in the living room when they got home and she did a couple of laps. She is eating well and everything else, so we wait....

If you are squeemish, you may want to stop here. Mom is gonna post a picture of Amaretto:

  7. Has that place been lanced?? Sure looks swollen. Poor kitten. If she is eating, that is a good sign. Weird that they found more abscesses. We sure are sending tons of purrs to her in hopes that whatever has been conquered. Take care.

  8. That poor little girl! Thank goodness she's with you now and will get the chance to heal. If she's eating well, that's a really good sign, I think. When I don't feel well, I don't eat much. purrs

  9. The poor little baby. We hope that picture was taken before the site was lanced. Like Marg said, if she's eating, that's always a good sign. We'll keep little Amaretto in our prayers!

  11. yea for the adoptions!!

    Ok, let me see if I get this right, she has multiple abscesses on the outside, and a few on the inside?? if I am reading that right I'm more then a little stunned and so very much want to know what the heck is going on with her..

    Well regardless of the cause, here's hoping she clears it all right up. Clav has always done wonders for standard abscesses that have happened around me..
