    after all the sadness and hurt that the last week has bought to my family, we now have another battle. Flossy wasn't looking too good this morning, panting heavily and seemed quite hot. there was even a little blood in her wee. off we went to the vets with the kittens too, only we had noticed by the appointment time that a few of the kittens were sneezing. it turns out Flossy's temperature is through the roof and she and all of the kittens have cat flu. i'm mortified. they've all had injections and there are tablets for Flossy too. i've been warned to keep an eye on their weight and top up feeds if necessary. now i have to pray they make it. what else can life throw at me in one week:(

    Oh no! Thats awful, such a worry for you, I am so sorry to hear this :frown5:

    Did the vet say what is wrong with Flossy? It doesnt sound like cat flu if she has blood in her wee, more like maybe cystitis or something? :confused:

    I really hope these poor little babies make it, they are so very young, I just hope and pray that you can get them well again. Im sure if anyone can, then you can do it. Good luck.

    she has cat flu and an infection so is being treated for it all - probably due to being run down after all the litters she has had and the life she was living. can't believe how things can turn out. i'm still trying to deal with losing Faith and her siblings and now have to pray these little ones make it. life can be so cruel

    Oh hun, it never rains but blxxdy pours does it.
    Lets hope the antibiotics gets to work on the kittens quickly and they all still feed.

    I do feel so sorry for you and your family going through this. xx

    sending plenty of positive healing vibes your way
    those so called owners, eurgh I hope something is done with them!
    how anyone can keep a cat in such horrible conditions is beyond me
    I wonder if they have any conscience at all, but I guess not

    Oh noooooo ... I thought you had seen the last of it ...

    As long as the babies keep feeding they should to fine ... Nutridrops to boost them will help

    I though I had the same with my litter, little sneezes here and there

    Sending all the vibes I can ... We have to have a happy ending for this litter and mom

    All fingers and toes crossed for a speedy recovery for all. Life can be really crap sometimes as I realised last week which was a REAL bad week for me, but heartache like this never gets easier especially after everything you've been through.

    As I've said before, thank god for people like you.

    Always here if you need me sweets xxx
