Where to start? Let's see, 10 days ago I picked up a new mom & 6 tiny kittens (sorry, still no good pictures). I thought all I'd have to deal with were a couple of fleas, but no-o-o-o... Mom (Sailor) came down with major Upper Respiratory Infection, first in her throat - causing massive drooling. She wasn't able to clean or care for her infant kittens very well and barely able to eat anything. She lost her magnificent motor-boat purr. Poor baby. She's such a skinny little thing anyway. After a couple of trips to the shelter clinic, we came home with a laundry list of meds - ValTorb for the sore throat, Vitamin C & Lysine to boost her immune system, and Colostrum to help with her milk production. That seemed to help for a couple of days, but (of course) the URI expanded to her eyes & nose. She stopped eating again. Back to clinic for more meds, now MetaCam & Amoxicillin. We'll beat those germs out of her yet!

So now you know why there've been no posts, no pics, no videos. I'm exhausted.
