Miri's Vet Visit
Miri did really well at the Vet's.
And she did pretty good in the truck ride too.
She did start to get a bit fussy halfway through the ride and want out of the carrier.
The only purrblem was I had to drive across town to the east side. If the Cat Hospital had been closer, I don't think she would have fussed hardly at all.
Dr. Jones said Miri's four month old teeth were in, which means the kittens are definitely between four and five months old, but Miri is very small for age. She only weighs 2.6 pounds! Such a gentle soul too. She let Dr. Jones take a blood sample without any problems at all.
Dr. Jones thinks that she may not have asthma or allergic bronchitis, but just plain bronchitis. She is on Clavamox now. Let's purr that she responds well to the antibiotics and won't need a steroid shot as well. She may still have allergies, but it is still too soon to tell the difference.
However when she was tested for FIV, Heartworms and Leukemia (the test checks all three), there was a mild positive for Leukemia. Which means that their four legged Mommy most likely has Leukemia. So now all the kittens should be tested for sure and then tested again in about three months.
I am having a big sad right now.... Miri and her curly haired brothers are so sweet, and the other three are slowly getting used to being inside. Please pray for these babies that I find their new Mommies soon who are willing to give them all the love they need for what may be a very short life, up to two years.
Love and Purrz,
