My poor little baby started to feel worse during the day so our vet thought it was best if we brought her in for a check up. Turned out she had a fever which we were suspecting. The vet did several tests on her, including feline leukemia. Luckily they were all negative and she was instead diagnosed with a virus. She’s being treated with antibiotics (Clavamox) and I can already tell she’s doing better, even though it’s just been a few hours since the first dose.
Unfortunately, it is very common for kittens that were separated from their mothers too early to have a weak imune system. It has to do with the weaning process where the kittens development requires the mothers milk in order to receive enough nutrition. Let’s all cross our fingers that Katniss will remain healthy and live a long & happy life!
