So the newest foster is starting to learn how to eat big kitty food (the trick is to warm it in the microwave I guess). So I make the mix of canned Friskies and baby food and warm it up. I take the dish into the room where the fosters stay and get him situated so he'll start eating. Once he gets going, I take the trash out to the dumpster. Come back in and he's sitting in the middle of the plate eating. Naturally, the minute I walk into the room, he has to come running over like "look what I did". At least the carpet is easily cleaned :p

Ok, so it's been a looooong time since I've had small kittens. I'd forgotten how nasty kitten farts are! Monday night I let the mewbies sleep with me and once everyone finally settled down this hideous wallpaper peeling odor wafted up. Two of the three bailed out in a hurry so I know who did it. He just kind of looked at me with one of those innocent "what did I do" looks. Here is the guilty party. He even has that "wha'd I do" look in this picture.

When I was in college our dorm mom had a kitten who would do the same thing! She would roam about the lobby, jump up next to you on the couch, snuggle for a few minutes then let one go. We called her "Fart Blossom".

QJ - exactly! Darmok and Jalad at Tanagra, Shaka when the walls fell. I've been pleasantly surprised at how many people have gotten the reference. Even our vet got it when I called. I have the guys scheduled to get their claws trimmed Saturday. They're too small yet for shots so those will have to wait a couple of weeks but my hands can't wait any longer to get the claws trimmed. Usually Mr. YGSS does the trimming but he's not too sure about cutting claws on ones so little. They're only 5 weeks old and so tiny. I've never had them this small, this is fun!

For some reason, people in this area won't adopt male orange tabbys so when I saw them at the kitten nanny (the humane society's bottle baby nanny) I knew I had to take all 3 boys, I couldn't separate them. They're together all of the time. If one gets separated he will cry and the others go find him. I was able to go feed them twice a week from the time they were a week old until I brought them home Saturday.

WMD Kitten Farts...
it seems developing feline GI tracts are notorious for this.

One of my Sainted Vets recommended yogurt (the fancy stuff that has the LIVE cultures innit) to help combat this problem.

I'd give then-baby Raven about a tablespoon of plain yogurt a day and it really cut down on both the quantity and the...er...quality of her emissions.

She prefers Dannon OikosTM, thank you...she turned up her silky little black nose at the ChobaniTM and then 'buried' it.
She's 11 months old now and past the WMD Kitten Fart stage, but she still enjoys (read: 'demands') her plain Oikos yogurt.

I've never tried her on the flavored stuff.
She'd probably eat it, but it has all that stuff that cat tummies aren't designed to cope with, and the whole point of the exercise was to make it less necessary to produce and emit the deadly vapors, not MORE.

Mr. YGSS does that too but these guys are so small that he's nervous about doing it. I'll let the vet get them this time and in a couple of weeks they should be big enough that the Mr will be ok with clipping them. Thanks for the tip though, he usually uses regular clippers, I might go look for the baby clippers.
 
2012-04-26 10:54:15 PM
Gotta brag on my Riktor Pye because I am just so proud of him and his behaviour at the vet's office.
Oh, but he's such a fine clever brave good kitty!

It all started...
(fadeout and harp-like 'back in time' music)

Last time Riktor was at the vet for an ear-cleaning the vet mentioned that he had some plaque buildup on his teeth.
Being a regular denizen of Caturday, I remembered reading about some resident kitties (and goggies) who were feeling so much better after removal of bad teeth...

"Hmmm" I thought. "I wonder if getting Riktor's teeth cleaned NOW might allow him to skip this sort of thing altogether?"
I asked my vet about it. Good idea...except that he would have to be aneth...knocked out for this procedure. Riktor is healthy, hearty and hale...but he is also due to celebrate his 10th birthday this year. Probably a good idea to do a bit of bloodwork first, make sure his heart, liver, kidneys et al are all happy in their work and that being anaeth knocked out won't hurt him.
Bonus: they would also have a baseline for him in the future.

Poor Riktor! The Sainted Vet wanted the tech to hold him instead of me doing so...which may have been why it took them three tries to get enough blood for testing.
He didn't struggle or fight, and the worst thing he said (audibly, at least) was HISSSS...but they were having difficulty in getting enough blood from him.
It was only after I started singing (very softly) to Riktor that he relaxed enough to allow the syringe to do its thang.

Wish they'd have just let me hold him...they probably would have been able to get enough blood first go...and I know it would have been easier for Riktor (this is a completely biased, medically unsubstantiated opinion, BTW).

I promised Riktor that he could ride loose in the car on the way home. He sat next to me and summoned up a tiny little purr.
He allowed me to remove the bright-red vet wrap gracing his silky black forelegs, but the fur on his neck (where they shaved it) is just going have to grow back on its own. Still, he doesn't seem to be holding any grudges...he accepted skritches and was courteous to the neighbor child who wanted to pet him.
I promised him catnip when he came in (even though he already had some this morning)...
and he will get it.
He's probably staying outside because I'm dehydrating spinach, and the white noise of the dehydrator really bothers him; much more so than the other cats who don't seem affected by it one way or the other.

Poor Riktor...it just has not been a great day for him. I'm going to have to make it up to him somehow...
