Today was another sulphur bath AND a vet visit. I’ve got the bath stacking puzzle figured out now. I pick up most of the toys and washables out of the room; take out 1 litter box, empty, clean, refill, and set it aside; remove the kibble, wash one bowl, refill, set aside, swap out the water bowl, fill, set aside. Then I remove the bathroom rug, pop the kittens in their carrier, put it in the bathroom. Then I bleach the hell (or the fungus) out of everything else in the room, remove the remaining litterboxes, put in the clean box, food, and water, set up a clean hammock and a few toys. Then I wash and fluff each kitten, dropping each in the room as I finish. The biggest complaints are from the first one back in the room, all lonesome, and the last left in the box, similarly lonesome. Then I clean the rest of the litterboxes and replace, put a 2nd kibble bowl out, and wash the carrier. I have fewer toys out at a time, and some, like boxes and paper balls, are recycled after use. The room is cleaner than it generally is, although kitty litter is instantly scattered, and sometimes somebody transports some sticky poops to various spots.
Last night, I found out it was Falafel who was barfing. He barfed thrice and then was sad and tired. Before I went to bed, I ran the “da bird” toy and he had some interest, although he didn’t jump about. This morning he seemed fine, although he also is the one who sneezes. Today they had a vet visit. Ringworm is still there but not spreading. Falafel got an anti-nausea shot and some antibiotics.
Despite everything, they like the carrier and 3 of them are cuddled up in it now.
The good news is I don’t have to show up for jury duty today or for another 12 months. I did consider that discussing ringworm would probably get me kicked off.
And apparently, it’s “sulfur” in the U.S.A. I like it as “sulphur”, I don’t write “theatre” or “colour”, but some of my words were first met in English literature.
