*Sorry in advance for the lengthy post*
Background: We picked this two babies up from the shelter on Friday - they were found as a litter of 9 in a shed with no Mum and have been hand reared by the shelter for the past few weeks. They are 8 weeks old and we’re fleaed and wormed before we collected them - but we’re covered in poo and sharing a couple of litter boxes between the 9 of them.
Saturday/Sunday: both experienced diarrhea which was yellow in colour, absolutely stunk and had slight sickness.
Monday: vets couldn’t diagnose because they were too young (?) gave them anti-sickness injections and more worming liquid. Told us to keep an eye on them over the next 10-14 days. Same symptoms as above.
Today: Our tabby has perked up loads and is now having almost solid poos and no sickness. Her sister, however, is going to the toilet with diarrhea almost instantly after eating (can’t even make it to her litter tray) and is very lethargic, but still alert. She’s lost lots of weight too and only approximately 450g.
We do have a vets appointment tomorrow morning for her as I don’t think she’d see the next 10 days if she was to carry on like this. Has anybody ever experienced anything like this? I’m hoping it could be parasites or something and not anything more sinister 🥺
Thank you in advance!
