Miri is a Sweet Baby
Hiya... It is now 2:22 am CST. Miri had a eucalyptus treatment this morning which helped. She started breathing easier. She doesn't seem to mind having a towel over her head and breathing in the vapors from a cereal bowl , as long as she is in my lap at the time.
She needed another treatment this evening, but her breathing didn't improve afterward.
Had to use the albuterol inhaler with the funnel I had made out of a water bottle. I sprayed the inhaler into the wide part of the "funnel" first and then placed the mouth of the bottle over her nose while she was wrapped up in a towel.
What a sweet baby! As long as she didn't hear the noise of the inhaler, she didn't mind breathing from the funnel.
After about six breathes, she was "done," and moved her head. (The vet had me count to ten with Sandy... but he was a big boy.) I held her with her upright in my arms and her breathing finally calmed. She slept in my arms for over an hour.
I just put her the bathroom with her curly haired brothers a few minutes ago.
Toby and Sammy are such a silly handful. I am still amazed at their quick adaption to two-legged Mommies.
Gotta go check on her other brothers before I call it a night. They would rather huddle together in a hidey place like a carrier or a big box. They're still not sure what "Inside Land" is all about, but they do love chicken, which is helping their adjustment to two-legged Moms.
The white boys, Jordi (Blue eye, Yellow eye) and Jazpurr (the big baby) are calming down and getting used to being held, but Justin, the other black kitty is a furry little fighter. He is going to take longer to socialize. Good thing I'm used to strong willed kitties! Just wish Maggie their four-legged Mom had brought them to us the same time as the first three.
Love n Purrz, Katie Kat
