Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
I adopted a 13 wk old kitten and after 3 days she got sick. Ever since then she has seemed withdrawn
I adopted a 13wk old kitten from a shelter & she came down with an upper respiratory problem. She was coughing, sneezing & had a runny nose so on day 6 I took her to the vet & they gave her Azithromyein & prescribed food. Although she was sick she still seemed playful & curious.
By day 7 the coughing was so bad that she had diarrhea everytime she coughed, vomited green liquid and stopped eating.
On day 8 I took her back to the vet & they kept her in overnight & gave her Metronidazole.
It is now day 12, the coughing, diarrhea & vomiting have gone but shes still sneezing/runny nose.
Back on day 8 the vet said she'd has lost weight & I have to get her to eat more but she'l barely touch anything! She is drinking water tho. Also her mood has completely changed, she sleeps ALL day/night, no longer enjoys being held and seems withdrawn.
Is this all normal for a 13 wk kitten to act this way?
How can I get her to eat more?Ive tried prescribed wet food, dry food, wet food & treats!
