Hi I'm new to pet forums and I'm hoping someone can help me. I recently adopted a very young kitten who lost his mum, he was 2-3 weeks old when we got him. Everything was great with little Samuel Spratt (Sammy) until a few days ago when he was 7 weeks old, he started vomiting and despite a checkup and antibiotics from the vet, this continued until he was eventually rushed back to the vet very weak and dehydrated the next morning. He was given IV fluids and some glucose but remains hypothermic and extremely lethargic. The vet still doesn't exactly know what's wrong with him, but thinks it was/is some kind of bowel obstruction, the cause of which remains a mystery - he could have eaten something; he could have had an accidental injury; he could have a congenital problem. He wants to keep him for a few more days to keep him stable and try to get his temperature up. He is no longer vomiting, is eating a little, and did a little poop this morning. The vet is being very guarded about the situation- and also I'm based in France so the language barrier is a problem with my French being tres basique. Basically I am very worried. I love this little dude and I am desperate for him to recover. But I also want to be realistic for my 4 year old son, who is waiting for his best bud to come home. Is there anyone out there with experience of having a young kitten with a bowel obstruction? (I know they are so much more fragile than grown cats so I am looking specifically for kitten stories please). And / or recovery for kittens who seem incredibly weakened after illness. I saw him today and, although the vet said he was a bit better today, he was so limp he wouldn't even unfold his paws without help ;( Any voices of experience would be very welcome right now. Thanks for reading.
