Yesterday, we did a bit of a photoshoot and took some video in the kitten room, to put together a quick "Thank You" video for our supporters on Patreon. We also got some photos in the course of doing that, which are at the end of this post.
But before we get to that, we'd like to update you all on the health of the kittens. The charts below are all part of the kitten weights spreadsheet which you are welcome to look at for more details. All weights are in ounces, because why not use an archaic measurement system for something important?
The Spice Girls + Nutmeg are all on a course of Amoxicillin now. And also, Neomycin ointment for their eyes. They all seem healthy, but you have to carry on antibiotics for a while to be sure you're not leaving any nasties behind. And as you can see, Fennel had a rough time, but she's rapidly recovering! We're going to continue to give her special food until we run out, probably.
As you can see, Toffee, Custard, Cobbler and Shortcake are all at the same weight that Biscuit, Pudding, and Crumpet were when they were fixed and adopted. However, we're still holding them back until we can solve at least the diarrhea that Toffee is still having. They also all have oddly swollen bellies that no amount of deworming, or vet work has managed to definitively solve -- but the vet's last theory was they just like to overeat, and if the diarrhea is solved, we're willing to go with that. Generally, though, they are healthy, happy, and gaining weight. Currently, we are waiting on the results of a fecal culture that should be done by the end of the week. They're also all presently on Metronidazole and the same Neomycin.
Just for comparison, here's the chart of Hazel's litter from the start of the year. This is what it looks like when you have a present, attentive momcat and super healthy babies:
All right, on to the photos!
