Momma Tortie Update

We had to leave Momma Tortie at the Houston Cat Hospital. She is very ill, running a high fever. Dr. Smith put her on antibiotics and is giving her fluids.

Momma T. has infected mammary glands and a URI. That's all we know so far. The heart murmur has changed from a 3 to a 1-2 (not sure what that means). A heart specialist will be out on Tuesday to do the sonogram.

When Momma T. gets to come home, she will be quarantined from her babies as well as all the other cats and kitties.

We'z purring and purraying like crazy fur Momma Tortie...we won't stop til she is all better. Mom sez dat heart murmers go from 1 to 6, with 6 being the worst. So dropping from a 3 to 1-2 is good.

Poor Mama T. I bet he feels terrible not being able to take car of her babies.

Maybe Dinah can watch them for her. She has weened her own babies, but she may still be able to keep her milk flowing for Moma T's.
