Next update

Junior's temperature is down a bit more this morning.  He is fighting them a bit more when they try to do the things to him that are necessary, both good signs.  His blood clotting test came back with one resultnormal and the other off a bit.  The one that is off is not off enough to make his nose bleed.  I am thinking, since he has been breathing heavily that his nose is simply dried out and that is why it was bleeding.

He hasn't eaten for them, so I suggested warming up some Fancy Feast or Friskies to see if that enticed him.  He needs to start eating because if he doesn't they think we will need to put in a feeding tube.  He hasn't eaten since last Friday morning.  I will go up this afternoon to have a nice long visit with him and see if I can get him to eat. 

I imagine they will keep him at least thru tomorrow.  I will be sticking close to him and not going to Colorado for Christmas (as I usually do).  I am also working on getting baby Jan a new foster home, as I wonder if the extra stress of her being in our home added to much stress to him. 

Thank you all for your purrs, prayers and crossed paws.  Please keep them up till he is eating and home safe and sound.

Sending purrs and prayers for Junior! Jan is such a cutie, I hope you find her a good foster home. I showed her to Lily's Daddy when we started talking about getting Lily a little brofur or sisfur now that she's inside only . I haven't gotten him to say yes quite yet, but he does think Jan is cute.

We are purrin' for you Junior. especially me, (Thomas), I am a flame point meezer too. Tinker has problems now and then and the best thing Mommy found was clear pedialyte to keep him hydrated. He is only eight but at time he lays around to much so Mommy knows he need hydrating even though we only eat canned food he still gets that way. We hope Junior feels better very soon=^Y^=Thomas and the Boyz

At least there is a bit of positive news. We will be praying he starts eating and recovering. I am sorry you will miss your Christmas in Colorado but am glad you are staying with him. I'd be doing the same thing. I sure hope he is home safe and sound soon.

May we suggest hand feeding? It always works for us when we're scared and not feeling 100%

We're purring for you. Au, Target, Guido and Ellen

I'm glad to hear he's fighting them a bit. That's a really good sign!

We hope he eats soon. Eating is very important. Maybe he will eat when you are there with him.

Purrs and hugs,

We are praying and purring for you, Junior dear.
Maybe some nice Gerber chicken baby food. When your airways are clogged or raw , it's hard to eat and breathe. Maybe slippery thin consistency food you could lick might do the trick. God bless you.
