Sick Kitten :(

This little guy is SIIICK!

He has an upper respiratory infection. This is really common in kittens that get adopted from shelters, but his is BAD. Also, he's so dang young (and small- he weighs just over a pound and a half!) that there's hardly anything we can give the guy to help!

So please send up a prayer for little Major Dutch Schaeffer (his official title- can you name where it comes from?) and we'll keep you posted. He has been to the vet twice. The next benchmark is Friday and we're really hoping he'll be improved by then!

I have no idea how I'll handle an actual human child. I'm freaking out over this little kitten I've had for just over a week. We love him so much and are so attached! He MUST get better!
