I love this picture.
So Half Pint stopped eating this weekend. He lost several ounces from Friday to Saturday, and after trying all kinds of things to encourage him to eat, I started syringe-feeding him. Yesterday morning, he was dehydrated and lethargic, so I brought him to the emergency vet for some fluids. His temperature was 97 degrees. The vet sent him home with a special type of food, antibiotics, and instructions to keep him warm and syringe-feed every two hours. I did so, and there was no improvement throughout the day (though his temperature did go up). I brought him back around 9:30 pm and told the vets to keep him there and give him an IV and syringe feed throughout the night.
Spay and neuter, folks. Spay. and. neuter.
Mimosa’s such a beautiful girl. I feel so bad for her being secluded on my third floor. With Half Pint being sick today I hardly got a chance to spend any time with her. She needs a home where she can be part of a family.
