Manchester, Mandryk, Marchand, Martina, Mavoureen--the newest kids
I have Puffin, Pixel, Mac, Klara and Kerrick yet. Tomorrow all except Klara are going to Petsmart. Klara is not going as she has been limping for a week. Sometimes kittens play and get their claw stuck and twist their leg a bit. This morning during our first loving of the day I was playing with Klara. She used both feet to play with my finger and all her paws felt warm. Then I felt a large lump on her shoulder. I got her in to the vet at noon today. The vet thought possibly her scapula was broken. I was scared as to break a bone in a kitten requires a big force. So Klara was x-rayed. It turns out it was an abcess from a puncture to her shoulder. So someone must have bitten her or punctured her skin with claw when they were playing. She is on antibiotics for a week. I was told that if I had waited until next week the infection would have been very serious. So Klara will be fine.
