It was a bit quiet about the five little other cats we take care of atm beside the triplets. The reason for that is pretty simple since there was nothing much to talk about. Not because these little fellas are not as cute as any other cats or anything like that but more so because we were struggling a bit with there progress.
All 5 are healthy by now but they're still not as used to humans as the triplets are by now. 4 of them are doing ok and we can play with them and pet them but one of them is giving us a little headache (this is also the one which you can't see in the pic). He's still extremely afraid of humans and doesn't let anyone touch him. We were trying so hard to get him more comfy with us but nothing really worked. So we talked with the head of our fostering/ rescue organisation and she found another foster home were the little trouble maker and one of his sister will move into tomorrow. Which doesn't mean that we wanna get rid of him but it's the only option we have atm to get him hopefully more socialised. We know that both of them will be in extremely good hands so we're pretty sure that this is the right decision. ❤️🐾❤️ Which kinda leads me to another point as well: We're always saying thank you to our amazing colleagues of our organisation but we haven't said once that we also need to thank the @kittenxlady as well since she is the reason why we applied for being foster moms for cats/ kittens in need! After we stumbled across one of her amazing videos on Facebook about bottle feeding little kittens we read more and more about foster homes for animals in need and how much work it is and also how important it is as well! She's doing an amazing job so we just wanna say thank you for educating so many people about this extremely important topic and leading us into doing fostering. If we wouldn't have started this journey we wouldn't have met so many amazing people which we are so grateful for and we wouldn't have the opportunity to help so many furry friends! ❤️🐾❤️
WHAT.A.DAY!!! So today we had appointments with both the triplets and the quintet. Everything was pretty fine with the quintet but the triplets were causing a bit of trouble.
All three had serious diarrhoea since yesterday so we squeezed in an appointment at the vet and guess what! They have giardiasis. For those of you who don't know what that is: when you break it down it's diarrhoea which is caused by a parasite (giardia). It's highly contagious to both animals and humans and you need to be extremely careful. You need clean their room every single day properly (which includes disinfection) as well as their food bowls and toilets.
Since we now know that they're infected we already started their treatment and hope that it'll get better in about a week. Especially since it's even more dangerous for small kittens, elderly or ill cats so we really need to be careful and keep an eye on them.
It's so crazy to think about that we're foster moms for just about 4 months now and we already had kinda everything which a cat could have. We had a pregnant cat, a newborn, we experienced death, we had a cat with just one ear, now we have 5 extremely wild kittens (about 16/17 weeks old) who can't get used to humans and now we also have 3 kittens (about 8/9 weeks old) who have FVR AND giardiasis. So basically there's nothing which could really shock us anymore and we're just doing this for such a short amount of time! 😸 But when you see how well they're doing when they leave our home you couldn't be happier to do this! 😻❤️🐾❤️
