One of our little foster kitties is on the verge. He's still eating and growing (barely) but not thriving like the others (who in just the 3 days we've had them have doubled in size). Little George's eyes are still fused shut, the others are starting to open. The others are getting some fat, not little George. They were one week old yesterday.

The Shelter vet (I'm fostering through the city pound) wants me to bring him back, (to put him to sleep) if he doesn't start thriving soon


Little George is the orange kitty.

He just needs to grow grow grow

He seems to be doing a bit better, still small and eyes are shut, but one ear is starting to open. So I'm hoping he just had a rough patch and will pull through.

Joanna, I was in agreement with the vet, doesn't mean I hope he doesn't pull through KWIM? Oh and yes he and momma spend about 2 hours yesterday alone (on her own accord).

How's George doing? We rescued an orange kitten in October from PACA at Petsmart, he was a foster/bottle baby.
Are your babies going through PACA/WMR, etc?

No we are going through the city's shelter (they have a foster program which I didn't know about until just this year) .

He's hanging on but just by a thread
We are doing 100% of his feedings. Mom still loves to snuggle him, but he isn't feeding. At this point we are discussing if we should give him until tomorrow or wait out the weekend.

Syringe, he has "good" feeding that we get excited about you know "yeah a couple more of those and he should turn around". Then he has a bad bout, for a bit
