: (

Well, we've got some sick babies on our hands.

When they moved in with us on Saturday everything seem fine, but Wee Willard's small size did concern me a bit.     He was eating well, so I thought he would catch up with the others in time.

Over the next couple day all of their appetites decreased, and the kittens started dropping weight.

So, I took them into the shelter to see the vet, and they'll be staying there for a couple of days until they turn things around, and start gaining weight again.

I visited them yesterday afternoon, and nothing's really changed yet.  Hopefully when I visit today, we'll see some improvements.

I'm anxious to get them home, but for now they're where they need to be.

Please don't worry.  They'll be fine.

I look forward to their return and hopefully soon "Wee" will be an ironic nickname for Willard.

I have no kitten pictures to share today, so Marcel is here to make your heart happy.

  1. Oh gosh do I love Marcel. I posted this video to my blog yesterday! We should all smile all the time, because it's worth it.

  2. Oh, thanks for Marcel. I started to weep when I read about the Trimble tabbies. Marcel headed me off at the pass and saved me from a snotty nose. I will, however, pray for their quick recovery!

  13. Marcel is a dear. Healing, positive thoughts for the tiny Trimble tots. We're going through some trying times here as well with Skootch (who refuses to eat). Heal, kitties!!

  14. Hugs and love to you and the babies. I should probably be embarrassed by the number of times I've watched Marcel (and gone back to watch the first one). But I'm not.

  15. Oh, no... :( I'm sending good thoughts their way, and hope that this isn't much more than the (from what you've said, pretty common) bout of illness for fosters. I'm sending good thoughts your way as well, since - faith they'll recover soon aside - what caregiver of any stripe wants to see their babies sick? We're with you all.

  16. :( That's never good news. I'll keep a good thought for a quick turnaround!

    When you said Marcel, I was hoping for an old lost shot of Marcel Bartlett or something. Disappointed me :( But that's okay.

  17. I'm so sorry to hear that the tiny tabbies are ailing. Two people and two kitties (a tabby and a torbie!) on the other side of the country will be sending good thoughts to the Trimbles (and to you, too -- even for an experienced foster-er such as yourself this has to be hard.)

    Hugs & head butts!

  22. We will send good thoughts from Texas that the kittens feel better soon.

  23. Oh no! My own kitty Bear has been feeling poorly the past few days... Hoping things will turn around after a visit to the vet this morning...
    Let's kick this bug together eh Trimbles?

  25. So sorry to hear this news. Sending the kitties purrs. And warm thoughts to you.

  26. I so hope they are OK (and you and the Bean too). I've had my own experiences with sick and dying kittens and hope that these little ones are just suffering a temporary setback. My thoughts (and those of my little feline menagerie) are with all of you.

  37. Love and healing thoughts for the Teensy Tabby Trimble Trio from a very concerned human, a goofy Golden (yes, I know a d-o-g !!) and a senior floofy, dilute tortie.

    I adore Marcel the Shell....a great anti-dote to the stresses of ill kitties.

  38. When I read "Marcel is here to make your heart happy" I thought I would see a video of Marcel (né Oliver) Furman - one of the many many kitties Laurie fostered to be a loving beautiful healthy cat. Alumni, please remind Laurie (and us if you don't mind) of what a wonderful foster mom she is with updates of your beautiful kitties! If you haven't checked out the latest on Kenneth Wiggins, please see his and his big brother's blog here: http://merlinthemagicalcat.blogspot.com/

  39. And Laurie, you make our hearts happy with your heart-warming blog. I can't tell you how many days a visit to IKBC has turned my day around. Thank you for all you do for our feline friends.

  40. Oh no! I hope they feel better. Sick kitties make me sad. My baby stewie was very sickly as a kitten and was in and out of the vets. I'm glad you have been seeing them
