Tony had to go to the ER today. He had a tooth start to cause some pain yesterday. Today half his face swelled up - I joked that he was starting to look like a pocket gopher. When the emergency dentist wouldn't call back, it was already past hours for the local urgent care clinic, so he had to go to the ER. He got a shot of antibiotics and some pills and was told to follow up with the dentist on Monday. He's still pretty swollen this evening, but he says he's feeling a little better.
Today marks the magical 25th day for Amos. He's taken well to his daily bottle of goats milk, and now has to share with the other kittens, who swarm when they see (or smell) the bottle. Today the kittens finished off all 60 mL of milk. A first for them. I'm beginning to be more optimistic about Amos' survival odds. He's still much smaller than the other kittens, but he's active, he does nurse with Floki, and with the daily goat milk supplement, he seems to be doing well. I think I will call the vet on Monday to see what they have to say about having him looked at when he's older and what they could offer in terms of getting his eyelids sewn shut permanently to prevent future infection.
