Another sex scandal

Baloo is a girl!

Like Birch, when little Baloo got to the vet for surgery they discovered “he” was a “she”. She’s so skittish, I never checked. Just took it on faith. They went ahead with her spay and she’s fine and resting at home.

The new ones (still four!) are doing well. I’m kind of stunned how well. The way little B&W’s eyes were the first night I thought we had a long battle ahead of us. Today? They’re both feeling well enough to battle against the drops. 🙂  And their eyes look pretty normal.

But stink? Holy smokes. Took a fecal sample in today and I am just praying it’s not coccidia.  If it’s not, I’ll give them a bath — even Hamish at his worst didn’t smell like that. If it is coccidia, there doesn’t seem much point until we’ve gotten rid of it. 😦  At least they all use the litter box well. That’s where the crate comes in handy. They’re so close to the box. But it’s really not enough room. Hopefully, the two will leave soon and it’ll be better. I console myself that if they were in a store or at a clinic they wouldn’t have more room.

Ginger boy is a bully! Always picking on the little girls. It doesn’t help that Tortie is a drama queen (of course) and squeals bloody murder on a regular basis.

    coccidia seems to be bad this year.. here’s hoping they get over it quickly. Do you guys use marquis paste?

    it is amusing how many kitties get mis-gender-identified.. I had it happen to me (they told me if they were boys or girls before I took them home) too many times, that now I always verify.. and I do it again in a week or so just to be sure.

    • The test came back negative! Yippee. I know you can get false negatives, but for now I’ll take it! It must just be crappy food and “over crowding” smell. Pee yew.
      I can’t remember what I used on Ella but I’m pretty sure it was pill(s).
      Heh … I know Foster Dad John has had some mis-identifications and maybe even TinyKittens, too. So I don’t feel bad. Boy or girl, they get the same treatment and love in the foster world. 😉

  5. Now if that’s not an eye-catching headline, I don’t know what is! 🙂 Hope they get better soon, for your sake as well as theirs!
