She's not terribly unwell, she sleeps a lot and is generally happy.
And now she has come down with ringworm. Which means that her vaccinations will be put off AGAIN. Which means that we still cannot let her outside! And there is nothing she wants more than to get past that door and play in the sunshine!
|but.. But.. BUT... I'm cute and cuddly and you want to give me everything I want, like letting me outside to play with butterflies and skinks!|
Cat fur makes this difficult. :-o Plus, she might clean it off and it's not safe for kitten tummies. Plus, we now have to wash every thing she has touch, bleach the floors and we are supposed to isolate a 3 month old kitten and not cuddle her. A very affectionate, well socialised kitten. *sighs* So, those grown up cats just became outdoor cats, with nice little beds in hubby's shed. I am not popular with the Tabby or the Burmese.
The vet explained that she also needs to take the medication, Griseofulvin, for six weeks, to clear it up properly. Side effects of Griseofulvin are nausea, vomiting... (skip the tolerable ones)... permanent liver damage, neurological damage and death.
So Very No.
So Dr. Eccentricess and Dr. Google put their heads together and researched all the other possibilities.
The safest I have found is... oh yes, this is going to be fun! Salt baths! Epsom salt or Sea salt baths!
|Fun! For Whom?|
Yes! I can do this and totally pretend not to enjoy myself and not get thousands of soggy kitten pictures and maybe even one or two soggy geriatric spitting/hissing monster pictures (for their own health, of course)
|YOU let her do this and just took pictures! Betrayal!|
|The heater warmed towel is earning forgiveness.|
