My baby will be able to see me soon

marilyn_cApril 12, 2013

I just noticed that Favio's eyes are starting to open. At least, the right one, a little bit. He is doing very well. He has had some problems with constipation. That had me concerned because he eats so much. I gave him a little enema this morning, and that remedied the matter. I have never given anything an enema, but I had one of those very flexible feeding tubes that I use for the possums. They have a rounded end and are very thin, so that served the purpose and got things moving. Maybe too much info, but y'all said to let you know how he is doing. I do know to stimulate him to help him go, and he pees a lot but not the other. I have spent extra time doing that and gently massaging his little abdomen, but when he didn't go for going on four days....I was really getting worried. He is such a good kitten....purrs all the time. I have some pictures on my camera and will post them this evening. He is going to be spoiled rotten, I can tell you that much..

awwww how sweet he is. I had to do the warm wash cloth massages on the bottoms to a few of the itty bitty ones too. Those momma's know just what to do!

Glad to hear that Favio is doing well. I can't even imagine the bond you two will have as he grows up.

I love the update. That Favio deserves to be spoiled, so don't you worry one bit about doing that for him. You're a good mommy!

Glad you thought of the enema, Marilyn. I'm afraid I wouldn't have. Favio's a lucky little guy and I think he knows it! He sure found a way out of that truck so you could take care of him. It's nice to be appreciated, isn't it?

I think it's so cool that your baby already knows you so well- heartbeat, smell, touch, voice, probably even taste and soon will actually see you too. Favio is going to be your special heart-cat, I think. Treasure him, Marilyn! Enjoy every second.
