the boys in the box
The boys started their morning today with breakfast followed shortly after with their second bath. The vet can't give them a flea treatment at this tender age so recommended giving them a bath using Dawn dish detergent. It was then that I recalled seeing commercials on TV for Dawn where ducks and other victims of oil spills are being bathed in Dawn detergent.

This afternoon Steve, the vet called. He wants to try them on a probiotic first to see how they respond and I agree. They are only about 19 days old and putting them on medication could be tricky. So this afternoon instead of my nap I dashed off to pick up the probiotic that I mix in with their kitten formula. Now I am keeping my fingers crossed that we see some solid results in the next few days.
In the meantime the boys are growing daily and they are feisty which are encouraging signs that I am doing this right. I have only hand reared one kitten before and that was Teika, 12 years ago.
