Paddy update – very worried

A short update about Paddy’s condition.

No improvement so far. The good news is she made it through another night and she swallows all the food and water that is given her.
Not much to do but keep her warm, continue to feed her, wait and hope for the best.

Afternoon update

Paddy is under observation with her vet (the operation was performed by a very friendly and caring emergency vet). Her temperature had dropped and she seemed to be getting weaker She had a very heavy procedure (part of the intestine was removed) and she didn’t look like she had really recovered from the shock yet. There were a few glimpses of attention when kittens meowed. The kittens, by the way, helped in keeping her warm this morning by cuddling up against her.

The kittens and how they are doing

Fine really. Earlier last week they discovered food and what you can do with it and now they all eat, drink, poop (not always where they are supposed to) and for the rest they are taken care of by Briti.

That is all but one. Quickly after the trouble with Paddy started we lost one of them. From day one she looked poorly and we feared she wouldn’t make it through the first days. With some assistance like giving her good nipple position she did make it, and hopes were she would be fine although she remained the runt of the litter. She died shortly after Paddy stopped feeding

  1. We are so worried too, Paddy. Please get better!!! There is so much love for you all over the world, we hope it helps you get warmer. We are purring and purraying for you. We are also very sorry to hear about the little kitten.

  2. We are purring very hard for Paddy to get well. And I’m so sorry or the loss of the little girl kitten. That is very sad.

    I’ll be checking back for updates. Your kitties have become quite dear to me, also.

    On a lighter note, I wrote into “Cute with Chris” and he posted one of your pictures. He got the details wrong about the kittens’ names, though — sorry. There are a few comments already, and it looks like people are loving it. I only know you as “Photoguy”, so that’s how the picture is credited.

    You are a truly amazing photographer and obvious animal lover. One of the commenters realized that after seeing just that one picture!

    Anyway, I hope all the purrs and prayers for Paddy help her to muster and take a turn for the better. As you say, it was quite a major surgery and a shock to her system.

  3. My thoughts are with Paddy and so sorry for the loss of one of the kitten. I know people that have had a similar surgery as Paddy and it takes time. You are doing a great job taking care of her. I hope all goes well. Thanks for keeping us up to date.
