I have not been posting much because I was dead worried.
Kiri's diarrhea did not get better.
And last week Orion didn't eat and began to poop stickily as well.
Me - and the vet as well began to panic: what if little Kiri had brought some FeLV from her stray times. I must confess that we didn't test it in the beginning because she was so hyper-active and happy. We felt she couldn't be so active and playful with a virus lingering in her tiny body.
But now I was worried about Orion and began to feel really guuilty.
The first good news: 2 days later Orion was back to normal- he obviously had caught a minor tummy bug and was back to devoring his food.
For Tuesday now we had booked Kiri for her big snip and decided we will test anything (including FeIV and FeLV) - plus Trude wanted to look at her little colon and pancreas.
Yesterday evening Kiri was home - and although it was a slightly bigger surgery than just the snip she was her normal fun self. She came to my chest when I was in bed and stayed there and purred up a storm.
And today we got the good news that all her tests were negative.
Her colon is irritated and her pancreas as well- but Trude thinks it will be solved with the diet.
The diet of course is the problem. Little Kiri is an accomplished thief. This weekend she stole a slice of ham with strong mustard (!) from her father's sandwich and dragged it under the bed before anyone ccould stop her. So now she has to sit in the guestroom while we eat.
But I am so happy and relaxed that it is nothing difficult. I have some new pics which I will post at the weekend- I just couldn't do it when I was so scared
