The black and white tabby is doing really well now however the skinny ginger one with girl boy bits is a constant cause of concern. I recently noticed that s/he appeared to be walking funny so I took him/her to the vet and after a lot of investigating it was discovered that the cause was a 10mm difference in th length of the femur it don't notice until s/he starts walking.How are things?
Ok thanks I will try adding some pumpkin. Despite the kittens oddities it is still growing slowly but I feel curing the bowel problem will help it add the weight it needsIf the vet is ok with this, could you add a little pumpkin to possibly help with the loose stools?
Ok if the pumpkin don't work I will ask the vet about metronidazole the vet did prescribe royal canin sensitive but ginger wouldn't eat it but his/her mother loved it. Despite the ginger kittens oddities poor sight, kinky tail, male female bits , odd leg length issue he/she is quite a lively happy soul I hope it all doesn't go pear shaped suddenly.A round of metronidazole may help. Ask your vet about it.
I have tried the pumpkin remedy and his/her poop firmed up most of the time, but still there is the odd unexplained bout of loose stool. The kitten is skinny and is smaller than its male and female siblings. I still cannot find a vet willing to neuter this kitten all I got was “ that’s a odd kitten perhaps when its fully grown it might be possible to sort it out”Are you-all doing ok?
Both males and females can be red ("ginger") in color.
The female and male are fixed i got the male done when it had its hernia operation I'm told the best time to do the kitten with hermaphroditism is when it's full grown if I want to take the risk of it not been able to urinate after surgery.
So she's ~1/2 kg lighter than her sister, about a pound. It could be worse, I'd say.
I don't think the male is neutered yet....that needs to be done, like now. By taking care of him, you'll have more leeway with the other two. Otherwise, well, you just know what will happen.
He is old enough now that this must be done.
Back in May (when you were looking for goat milk!) you said the kittens were "at a property in Dartford just outside London"......are you now in/close to London? If I know your general location, I can ask some folks (who know about resources there) for suggestions of Vets who may be willing to see this kitten for spay & neuter.
What I said in post 89 is true The vet said it's a odd kitten because the kitten is equipped with both male and female sexual organs.the vet also said it's best to wait till it's full grown if I really wanted to get it fixed.
Ah......OK. Now I'm confused, because when you first posted today (above #89) you said:
"I still cannot find a vet willing to neuter this kitten all I got was "that's an odd kitten perhaps when its fully grown it might be possible to sort it out."So, that's why I asked your location - so I could try to get Vet recommendations for you.
Now, would you like me to try to get some quality suggestions for Vets/clinics/hospitals ? (at the least, that would give you more options/choices)
It's easy for me to do.
