Purrs for Bambio

Update: Bambino was making motions in his mouth with his tongue like he was thirsty, so I thought I should syringe some water into his mouth, but I remembered that kitties generally don't like that.  Then I remembered that Herman would eat Fancy Feast Elegant Medleys when he refused to eat anything else, so I went to the store and got some.  The Elegant Medleys have a much higher moisture content than the pate style, so I would be taking care of two problems as once.  I gave Bambino just a little bit of the Elegant Medleys and he ate most of it.  I'll try to get some more down him later tonight.  Right now it's "Yay!  He ate!"  Thanks to all of you for the great comments and the purrs.  I know they are helping.

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.

I am sending lots of purrs to Bambino! When one of your FeLV kitties gets sick, I always worry because I know their health is more fragile than non-FeLV kitties.

Sending healing purrrrrrrrrss to Bambino. Eat something, OK? You and your beans will all feel better.

Can you tell, is his nose stopped up? Kitties sometimes quit eating if they can't smell the foods.

Bellen said...

Good luck to Bambino. My cats are suffering from colds right now and not eating much at all, so I can understand your anxiety, though it must be more fearful with his FeLV to worry about. You may have to syringe water and food into him, as much as he dislikes it. I hope this issue can be resolved quickly.

TK and Pip said...

We are purring for Bambino! I know how hard it is to wait and wonder and worry.
You are such a dear person, Karen Jo, I have no doubt that he could not be in a better place.

Brian said...

Don't mind me we are just dropping off more purrs for sweet Bambino.

caspersmom said...

Bambino, Mom and I are praying for you. Please start eating and get well. Hope it's just being a little under the weather. Hugs and Purrs to you.

Mom: Karen Jo I can remember you trying to make up your mind whether to get a cat or not. You have come a long way from writing limericks (which were really neat) to taking care of FeLV+kitties. What a wonderful thing you are doing. God Bless You. Keep up the good work, the kitties need you.

Love,
Cleo and Mom

Fuzzy Tales said...

We're glad he ate a bit and have our paws crossed for his vet check. Continued purrs; we hope it's just a cold!

playfulkitty said...

We will definitely be purring and praying for Bambino. It is so hard on us humans when a kitty is sick. I'm glad to hear that he took down some food. If he needs more water, you could always try mixing in a little extra with his food. A lot of cats will take it that way.
