    Prayers please - kitty emergency

    I have not yet updated the sites today. This morning, due to complicated circumstances, I accidentally put dog anti-flea and tick meds on our two kittens. She is desperately ill and seizing and he is more vocal and active but also affected. I feel awful and have no idea how I will pay for this, but am at the emergency vet now.

    Bless them they took her in immediately, and him shortly afterward, before I had even checked in. Please say a prayer for Marigold and Kathmandu.

    Oh no, Karen! I am so sorry. Please don't blame yourself, accidents happen.
    I'm sending all the love and healing thoughts to Marigold and Kathmandu, and to you as well!
    I just saw your second post. That's wonderful news. You must be so relieved.
    How old are those two babies?

    We think they are about 4-5 months old. And thank you, it was so so scary.

    Now I am faced with a bill I have no way of paying, but I could not let them die.

    We've had kitties at the clinic who had either the wrong flea meds or too much of it applied. It's definitely a nerve wrecking sight.
    I am so, so glad that they will be ok!

    No worries. The kittens' wellbeing takes precedence. How long do they need to stay at the emergency clinic?

    Prayers and healing energies and love are being sent from us for your dear little kittens Marigold and Kathmandu, and for you too, Karen. I'm so glad they are recovering!

    Bless you, Karen, for taking them in to get treated right away, and bless the little kitties! Please don't blame yourself. Accidents happen, and the important thing is the babies will be okay. And no problem about not updating the pages. This emergency took precedence!

    I got tp take them home tonight, and just need to keep doing them every 8 hours and watch them carefully for 24 hours. They are very happy to be home. The ride home (Over an hour's drive) was very noisy indeed. But all is quiet now. I think we are all just exhausted.

    What a scare, but I'm glad they are OK now and back home. Flea meds should come in "bottles" that only release one drop at a time, it can be difficult to see how much you give. Try not to blame yourself.

    Hugs to you and kisses to Marigold and Kathmandu.

    Here is a first aid tip in case the wrong or too much topical flea prevention has been applied:
    As soon as possible, bathe the cat in Dawn dish liquid or a mild shampoo to remove as much as possible of the substance, before it can get into the cat's system.
    This is especially important if you can't get to the emergency vet right away. It will greatly improve the cat's chances of recovery.

    Yes, Kermit immediately bathed them, but it was only after they started showing symptoms, sadly.
