Day Four - 5/28/08

Weight: 6.8 oz

Feedings: Every 4 hours

Eaten in last 24 hrs: Approx 27.5 ml of KMR

Stimulation: Yeah bowels working :).

All went well yesterday. The biggest accomplishment was the fact that Dudley's bowels are working. Of course, now that we got them working each time I stimulate him, I get gross orange liquid. This morning at the 7:30 feed, when I took him out of his box he had already started a bowel movement without any stimulation from me (does this mean he is getting close to eliminating on his own??). The bowel movement was a little firmer and there was a lot of it. I am hoping this is not something to worry about.

In 24 hours Dudley gained .3 oz and the food intake continues to go up. After three days of the every four hour feedings, 3:30AM is getting old but I think I have to keep it up for about another week before I can start to move him to every 6 hours.

We are running out of the supply of KMR that the vet gave us so I will have to go to Petco today to get some more. The other three felines are still unsure of Dudley. George still growls at him and Gretel is getting a little more interested. Andrew may turn out to be the one that adopts Dudley and takes him under his wing. He is very interested in Dudley, sniffing him any chance he gets, with no negative reaction, just real interest.

Andrew checking out the new addition.

"So when can I play with him???"

Dudley relaxes in the crook of Mary Beth's arm.
