After a week of touch and go, the Sin City girls are both back to normal! Eating, drinking and just as importantly, normal stool! We went from liquid, to normal after 2 days of the magical Metronidazole. Seems they had giardia. Giardia is a parasite, and not only did the 2 girls have it, but everyone ended up with it. The vet figured they would all end up with it, so he gave me enough to treat them all. The rest of the clan have 2 doses left, and all the stools are almost back to normal. Whew.

Vegas is feeling better.

Vegas does her impression of "Killer Clowns from Outer Space."

A nice photo pose from the Sin City girls.

So, the Sin City girls spent 2 days in my office, so I could better monitor them, and keep them from infecting the others, and keep the others from eating their food. I moved them back in with the rest of the "colony" Sunday morning. The elephants are all romping up there and should be on a fast track to get to weight.

Dallas still has that sour puss face.

Colonel has the same look on his face.

Albany stops for a photo.

Vegas just woke up from a nap.

Sergeant prepares for a nap.


Plays peek-a-boo.

Hopefully, there will be smooth sailing from here on out.

That 'clowns' photo needs an ICHC caption. The other kitty (Major??) looks SO disapproving of Vegas's silliness.

Actually, the other kitty is Sin City sister, Reno! LOL!

Ick! Giardia! I've had that. Good thing you nipped it in the bud.

Kudos to you for taking such good care of the fuzzballs.

Any news of the Cougars from the shelter?

Martha said...

Glad everyone is feeling better--great photos of the crew...

DoodleBean, seems there was a recently adopted kitten that died from what they believe was panleukopenia last week. Not one of mine, but one of the other fosters I know, Ted and Martha at The shelter has taken all kittens under 6 months old off view and into isolation for about 7 days, which is the incubation period for it. Far as I know, the Cougars and Diego are all still there. I will keep you posted when I get more news.

OMG! That's awful, Jamie! Love and prayers for the shelter kittehs comin' down from B'more! Do keep us posted.

That's so serious I almost feel frivoulous saying how much I loved the pics, especailly Major playing peek-a-boo. Glad your crew is doing better!

Jamie said...

So far, so good. And the good news is, Diego and Johnny Cougar and Jessica have all been adopted! Justine is still there, but doing fine. I will post some more pix tomorrow of the Circus.
