I just came back and thanks God she's not sick. At this point I don't know what else to do. She doesn't eat anything. I gave her canned food, dry food, infant formula, and she wouldn't eat. Probably she's just very sad. I spend all day with her and I try to play with her and nothing. Probably she's used to be around other kittens and I can't have another one. The vet admitted she's a little undernourished, she weights less than half a pound. I would do anything to make her feel better even if that means to give her up.
So, now that she's actually been to the vet, what did they say about her vomiting the other day? And, what advice did they give in terms of food. Is she drinking anything? From your post it sounded like they just kind of sent you on your way.
I'm surprised that the shelter on petfinder.com adopted her out at such a young age. Was she more active before you took her home?
That doesn't sound very good at all - you seem to be doing what a loving pet parent does - playing with and giving love and affection to their baby on a regular basis. You may want to check with another vet for a second opinion as far as her physical exam goes.
Best of luck I will be keeping your kitty and you in my thoughts - may she get better soon!
Finally I just received a list of the things the vet did to my kitten on her first visit. it says:
6/26/04 Felv/ Fiv NEG
6/26/04 to 6/29 has had diarrhea getting solid (yeah right!!)
6/29 vaccination > falocell 4
6/30 began with canned food and ate well
0.33 paracur for the next 3 days
7/10 one drop advantage
the funny thing is that she is a male!! gotta change name )
finally she's eating a little bit. I have to put the food in her mouth though. Diarrhea is less watery i hope it'll get better soon.
She's soooooo cute. She's much smaller than i thought, she's just a wee little thing. Glad you have some more history on her. She'll probably get more active in the next few weeks. Once my kitten hit about 8 weeks she was ALL over the place. And it really did seem to happen almost overnight.
I agree about the vet comment. In my last post i was hesitant to say anything, but through all your efforts I feel like you were misguided throught the entire process. It actually started with the shelter your recieved your kitten from. They should not have let her go in that condition. For her to be that sick and the vet just send you home and tell you she's "not sick" is very alarming.
On the flip side we know you did the best you could, you were trusting the vet's judgement and it was unfortunate that this happened. But, your kitty was loved every moment. Hang in there!
