    Update on Stitch!

    Although he’s still a bit congested and coughs, Stitch is finally eating all on his own again!! I took him to a different vet yesterday morning, they prescribed him a different antibiotic (Clavamox drops instead of Zydaclin) and an anti-inflammatory and it seemed to help a lot! I’m so relieved...

    Stitch still not eating :(

    Sorry! Had a busy day. He finally started eating this morning!!! Last night he was very interested in the dog food but didn’t eat much. Today he’s chowing down!

    Thank you for your reply. I will have to get a larger syringe because the one I have only holds 3ml. Fortunately I can get a 60ml syringe from my workplace.

    Stitch still not eating :(

    We wrapped him up in a towel and gave him maybe 12 ml of food through the syringe. He fought it at first but then calmed down and let us get a few in. I’m surprised he isn’t afraid of us by now! He doesn’t run away from us which is nice. Before and after the feeding we give him lots of cuddles...

    Stitch still not eating :(

    Good news! Runny nose & congestion has eased up. Now Stitch just has a cough, and a bit earlier today he sneezes up a bloody ball of mucus (ew!)

    Teeth bleeding?

    Thanks! My husband was freaking out, thinking he punched the cat’s teeth out! I had to look it up to assure him that kittens lose their teeth.

    Teeth bleeding?

    While trying to give Stitch his oral medication I believe we keep bumping into his baby teeth and it begins to bleed for a minute or two. Also, a set of baby teeth fell out during the ordeal today. So yay? yikes? Not sure how to feel right now. Can’t wait for him to heal up.

    Stitch is powering through...

    Poor little peachfuzz :( We bought a humidifier for him and it’s cleared up some of his congestion. Hopefully the worst of it is gone by now! Fingers crossed for only 2-3 more days of the sick. I miss his crazy little self!

    I think he was trying to burrow underneath her! Poor thing probably feels weaker since he’s not feeling well.

    Thank you for the info!! I’ll have to try that with him. If not, we’ll just keep doing what we can to get him to take it. I wanted to try mixing it in with his wet food but he wasn’t hungry this morning :(
