Kittens are prone to many kinds of virus. Especially if the mother is not perfectly healthy, essential care is needed for the kittens to make sure they survive till at least 2 months, which is the youngest age for them to get vaccinated. After all the tragedies and traumas, we are left with 6 kittens, looking good every day and we hope to make sure all of them grow up healthily. So since few weeks back, we've been monitoring each and everyone's mood, behaviour and appetite.
Last week, we sent 2 kitties (from 2 different mothers) to the vet since both of them refused to eat and looked pale and weak. They both have watery eyes, but the vet confirmed they did not have flu or fever, so only eye ointment need to be applied everyday. Also, antibiotic was prescribed, 0.25ml for each kitten, twice a day. After a few days, both of them become active again, but one of them still refuse to eat on its own so we need to force-feed her everyday.
Another common disease we've been experiencing is skin problem. It's difficult to constantly maintain everybody's health at the same time especially since we've been having many visitors come and go once in a while. So we'll try our best from now on to make sure everybody is happy because, hey! - A healthy cat is a happy cat!
