If the diarrhea is watery, you must ensure to give her more electrolytes. flavorless peidalyte for babies is good. You can begin with just sprinkling a little salt on her food.We are still having diarrhea with her so guessing she's going to need deworming at the vet tomorrow but she's still eating and playing so we are monitoring her.
When we first got her we had her eating WholeHearted grain free but then the store was out so I got blue buffalo grain free. A day or so after starting on blue buffalo she started having diarrhea. I figured it was the food change so I kept her on blue buffalo for 4 days but she kept having diarrhea so we have gone back to Wholehearted grain free just in case she was having an allergy with blue buffalo.
Hopefully the vet will have some ideas for us as well.
She's steadily gaining weight. By my rough guess (using Mondays as her weekly 'age up' days) she turned 8 weeks old today! She's 1lb 6oz as of today. I can no longer feel between her spine though I can still easily feel her ribs.Can’t wait for more photos!!!
sounds like things are going very well and they will be bff before you know it, both such cutiesJiji is definitely a little brat so I'm fine with Luna putting her in her place. Jiji will pounce Luna, get swatted, roll on her back like "I give up!" then be back pouncing Luna 5 seconds later.
Both of them are using the litter box and eating so I'm happy with the progress. The real test will be Thursday. Everyone will be at work all day so Luna and Jiji will be closed in the room together.
There are lots of vertical spaces Luna can reach to get away from Jiji and Jiji has a few hiding spots I don't think Luna can access so hopefully it goes smoothly!!
One of Luna's new very important cat jobs is to supervise every feeding of the kitten. When Jiji starts calling for food Luna will come with me into the kitchen, watch me mix and warm up the wet food, then follow me into the cat room. She doesn't try to take the food or bother the kitten when she eats, she just sees me do it so she 'helps' as cats do.
Luna is playing a lot more with the feather teaser than she used to which has been really nice to see. Luna has also lost a bit of weight since the kitten came which I worried about but she's still eating and pooping so I think it's just because she has something else to do besides sleep most of the day lol.
Jiji doesn't get hissed at too often any more, mostly just swatted for being a brat.
Yay, great news.. yes it is totally normal. She is just playing and testing boundaries and when Luna disciplines her she rolls on her back submissively etc. Angie used to do that to Byron a lot and he would wack her loudly on the head, but never hurt her. She just kept jumping on him 2 minutes later, lol, but at about 6 months, she finally calmed down.Fun update! Jiji came out with me today and helped with errands. We went to PetSmart, Petco, Hobby Lobby, and Lowe's. Anyone who wanted to, got to pet her and she did great. Hopefully soon she will be big enough to start harness training. (I live in Oklahoma and all cats are harnessed trained in the event of displacement via tornado!)
I bought a two new cat trees for the cat room. One came today, the other will come tomorrow. I got it all set up and took pictures of the girls checking it out!

A quick question. In the last week or so I've noticed Jiji approaching Luna with her body sideways, ears back, and then trying to pounce. Luna only has to smack her once and Jiji is on the ground on her back with her feet up. Is this an attempt at play or something concerning?
