Triss, my little lynx siamese kitten. We had a scare with her a couple weeks ago. She was throwing up and having diarrhea. We were about to take her to the vet, but she got better that same evening. But it happened again the next day. And she got better again on her own. I prayed both times for Jesus to please heal her. We can’t afford a vet and I was going to have to use a credit card. Both times he did. We knew she might have gotten into something. I tore the house from end to end. Vacuumed excessively and hand washed the floors. Thank the Lord it did not reoccur and whatever she got into, must have gotten cleaned. We also went back to her original kitten food. We switched because it was cheaper. Not worth risking it again and it could be she has a sensitive tummy. I shopped for gentle adult cat food when she’s ready. Anyway, hope you enjoy the picture. I’ll post the others too when they hold still long enough, lol!

Cutest kitten ever! Glad she is better, and, yes, the wrong food can cause an upset stomach.

Lemmy, my panther Siamese, threw up pink today. He’s better now. We can only think he got into something. I really wish we could buy our own place. I try to keep my aunt’s place clean, but there’s no telling what’s hiding. The spay and neuter got delayed. We could not get them into the crates. Especially the mom. She doesn’t allow anyone to pick her up. I’m working with her on that. But it know it’s not going to work putting her in the crate that way. She’s also too smart and knows what I’m doing. Our new appointment is this month. I’m good to trap each one in the bathroom and disguise the crates as a hiding place. Hopefully they will either run into one or I’ll capture on in a towel purrito. Picture of Lemmy hopefully tomorrow.

Here is my little panther Siamese! I call that because he’s all black and has a triangular face.

This one shows how big he is already at 6 pounds. He’ll be 5 months this September 10th.

This one is Lemmy with my Dire Wolf (Northern Inuit) Arya.

These next two are of Yennefer. She’s my little terror but we love her anyway. :)

They are completely adorable and I love those suspicious little eyes. Arya is a gorgeous girl and looks so sweet with the kitty. That is how all my GSDs have been.

Lemmy is driving me crazy. He keeps trying to get his mom pregnant. We’ve all lost a lot of sleep. I now have to watch Yennefer around him as well. She’s gone into heat, but prefers my 8 year old female to him, lol. I have him in the crate right now so I can eat lunch. I feel bad cause he Meeeeoooowing to get out. But every time I do he goes looking for her. A spray bottle works if I catch them together. And he sleeps in a separate room at night with my son. Whose lost a lot of sleep. We’ve got to get them in the crates this time. Can’t take the constant yowling and can’t afford more kittens.

Yes! They need a spay and a neuter and they’ll be happier too.

So I took the day off, September 20th, to get them spayed and neutered. Gave them 2 weeks notice even, and suddenly everyone is going on vacation and also wanting that day off. They want me to drop my cats off and come to work! It’s an hour away! Would the vet want me to be close by in case there are complications? I’m trying to tell them a good reason why I can’t come in that day. I was going to stay close in the area and save on gas. What else could I tell them?

My tabby kitten is only 3.8 pounds and will be 5 months tomorrow. I leave food out all day and night. What else should I do? She loves eating the canned food mixed with the dry in the morning, she won’t eat hardly just the dry. Are other two kittens eating all the morning food and not leaving enough for her? What should I do?

Ok, I just have her a 1/4 of the canned kitten food and she ate it all! So I’m going to stray feeding her separately in the mornings and see if it makes a difference. Any thoughts still welcome. :)

Not really. The chance of complications in young healthy animals is very low anyway. But if your leave has already been approved, you don't really need to give them a reason. . .

I would feed the one who concerns you separately until you find out what their eating styles are. I have had cats who would elbow others out of the way for food, ironically, even when there was more than anyone was going to eat. Often the left out member does not want the food that has already been licked though.

I have never had a complication at the vet's office, or even with wild births outside. I agree that you were given the day off and it is now yours, but maybe there are office politics that play into this. TBH, if something were to go awry, you aren't going to rush into the operating room or kennel area and do anything yourself if it does come down to you not getting the day in the end.

Thank you! I didn’t think about other kittens coodies on the food. Lol! That does make since.

I was guaranteed the day off, but they wanted me to come in. I held my ground and said no. It’s too much gas money to do so being an hour away.

Cat coodies are a big deal at my house. Glad you have the day off and can save a little money on gas.

Just wanted to report that Triss is doing great! She no longer looks stoned and is more active as well. I’ll have a weight for you guys tomorrow.

Triss is officially 4 lbs. She needs one more pound to go! I’m not getting her spayed at this time but she has an appointment in October to do so.
