Thankyou everyone for the information!!

Teeka is 'okay'. They noticed small lacerations on her throat, which probably has been the cause of her not eating. (They suspect something had burned her throat when ingested.) She was already so underweight when she came to us, this explains everything!

They flushed out her system yesterday and they decided against putting her on an IV as she has been drinking water, just not eating.

They said she won't be coming home today or tomorrow - maybe at the end of the week. Until then they will continue syringe feeding her.

I still have not been told what exactly is the cause of all of this - but the adoption coordinator thinks that the kittens were either given something or got into something before they were found last weekend.

:sad:

Poor babies.

Please keep Teeka in your thoughts!!!
