Freddy's digestive issues have cleared up. I bought a can of condensed goat milk last night, and I've given him a couple of small servings of that, mixed w/ water so that it's regular strength. He drinks that up like it is going out of style, then begs for more. I don't want to give him too much, but I thought he could use the extra calcium, and goat milk is usually digestable. I took his picture, but so far I'm having lots of trouble with the editing software, so that will be posted later.

So am I, I have a feeling this lil guy will pull through and turn out to be very loving kitten. I'd love to see that pic when you get the software figured out.

I would love to hear the latest on Fred, I hope he's in good shape by now, I know he had such great care that I'm sure he is all better.

Freddy is loaded for bear now. He's putting on weight, and is just about ready for his booster shot. His eye is still hurting him, but that's much better. He lost all his fur on one side of his nose, I think from always being gummed up with eye discharge, but he has some fur growing back now.

I put a new topic up, under "Freddy", as he now has a name.

If he had trouble with cows milk but none with goats milk I think he just has a cow milk allergy, like some peoples do.

I never gave him cow's milk, as most cats have trouble digesting that. Goat's milk works with almost any animal, including the human kind.

Ah............so what do you think was causing all the tummy trouble? Just adjusting to new food from whatever he was eating before you got him?

I think we just gave him too much food at once. The lady who found him fed him, then the vet tech at the vet's fed him, and we fed him at our place too. His little system went from empty to overfull, and that didn't settle well for him. It's awfully hard to NOT feed a skinny little kitten, but we really should have given him smaller portions at first.

I know what you mean. When you see somebody who is all skin and bones, you want to fatten them up quickly. It's so hard to do little meals more often. I remember reading about the people who saved the concentration camp people. They gave them really rich food right away and many of the people couldn't handle it. Slow and steady is the way to go... Good luck to the little guy. I hope things have settled back down by now.

He's doing great now. He had to have his breakfast late today, as Coco, his "roomie" had to have her spay surgery, and she couldn't eat. I didn't want to make her go hungry while Freddy was eating. He had to wait for Kevin to come home from dropping Coco off to get his breakfast. He was pretty mad. He grabbed my ankle with all four paws and demanded his food! Luckily he's had a manicure, and has no sharp points on those claws.

It's really hard to explain to a kitty who wants his breakfast WHY he had to wait. Glad there was no lasting ankle damage!
