So I haven't been posting much about the kittens, because.. well.. they aren't really up to much. They've been sick with an upper respiratory infection for a week now and have been on antibiotics since Monday, 5 more days to go.
Last night, Brian and I started to worry a little: the kittens didn't seem to be getting better at all- quite the opposite. Kittens who were sick before, are worse. Kittens that weren't sick at all, are now sneezing. One kitten is even wheezing. After what seemed like an endless game of phone tag with the foster coordinator, she told me that it isn't uncommon for them to seem sicker, that they must go through the entire cycle. She also informed me that many of the fosters taken out last week have 'kitty colds' and some aren't going to make it.. PANIC MODE!
I've since separated the kittens into 3 groups: not so sick, sick, and SICK! 'Not so sick' have been in their cat playpen in the living room, while 'sick' was placed into the spare bedroom, and 'SICK!' are in a kennel in the bathroom, receiving steam treatments. They will all be getting some 'Little Noses' decongestant when I get off work. I'm so worried.. =(
