Purrs for Bambio
Update: I had a long conversation with my friend who is an experienced Mom and foster Mom to special needs kitties and we came to the conclusion that as Bambino is not terribly sick yet and his vet knows him and has dealt with FeLV+ kitties before, it would be best to wait until tomorrow and get him an appointment with her. At the emergency vet you never know who you will get and it's a long trip. His regular vet also has a new treatment for FeLV+ kitties that the emergency vet might now know about. Many thanks to Ann of Zoolatry for the badge on the sidebar. Please feel free to put it on your own blogs. I know the power of the purr.
Karen Jo: I am worried about Bambino. He hasn't eaten much since Saturday. I have tried putting him in front of the food and the food in front of him, but he sniffs it, licks it and walks away. He ate a few treats yesterday, but today he walked away from them. He hissed at Horus this morning, which really worries me because he has NEVER hissed at another cat. He spent most of the day yesterday sleeping. I can't take him to his regular vet today because they are closed. I left a message with a good friend of mine about maybe taking him to the emergency vet, but I'm not sure they would see him. He is still walking around with his tail up and jumping up on the furniture, so he's not deathly ill. This could be something minor like a kitty cold or it could be a FeLV flare-up. Please purr for him.
