Poor Zuke – most of the time, he’s the last kitten to eat because he takes SO LONG to eat. I told Fred that I think I could feed the other three entirely and potty them in the time it takes Zuke to finish with the bottle. It’s not that he eats so much more than they do, it’s that he prefers to SAVOR his formula. He’s probably going to be a foodie when he grows up.
Pattypan and her wrapped-up leg. They put a piece of gauze over the drain, covered that Vetrap (the bandage that sticks to itself), and then – because Pattypan immediately started chewing at the bandage and trying to pull it off – they covered the whole shebang in tape. It was not easy to get that off her when we needed to change the dressing!
Pattypan went back to the vet yesterday to have her leg rechecked. It was starting to swell up again and the results from the lab (regarding the sample the vet took from the abscess on Monday) won’t be back ’til Thursday or Friday, so we decided to add a second antibiotic to her regimen. Hopefully it’ll help – luckily, having her leg bandaged doesn’t seem to bother Pattypan, and it certainly doesn’t slow her down.
In the first, the kittens are hanging out in the tub being adorable.
In the second, Ambercup is busy showing Calabash just who’s in charge, while Zuke and Pattypan watch.
And in the third, Ambercup LOVES her bottle. Watch those ears go!
