Day at the vet!

The kitten spent the day at my vet getting fluids and love and attention.

She came home with medications AND a name: Bird! Apparently when they were cleaning her eyes and nose, they decided she looked like a bird. She weights 12 ounces - less than a pound - so she's actually Little Bird. It suits her and seems to be sticking (for now).

Little Bird is on an antibiotic to try to cure the serious upper respiratory infection she has and she's getting eye drops to keep the crusties away so she can see and breath properly.

I spent the day trying to organize a foster care situation for her where there are no other cats - she's contagious, afterall! But everyone who loves cats is either allergic or has cats already! So Little Bird will be staying with me for the time being. She'll be in our bathroom, where she will get lots of attention and will benefit from the steam from our showers.
