I won’t be around today, sorry guys.
This morning at 5am, a kitten that was acting entirely healthy 2 hours earlier had a seizure and proceeded into agonal breathing… no corneal reflex, etc—that is, basically he was brain dead. I rushed him to the emergency vet and put him down.
I have three other kittens that are suspect—one that is extremely ill right now and it’s touch and go. All are at the vet and being monitored closely. At this point, the only link we have is the Blue Buffalo kitten food I was feeding. This is the first time I have used this food with kittens (previously, I have used Royal Canin) and coupled with the fact I have otherwise previously healthy males presenting with UTIs, it’s our only guess that it’s the food (especially when coupled with my vet’s experiences for the past month, noting Blue Buffalo being fed to animals that took ill and/or died).
So yeah… fucking sucks. Ideas on how to sue this horrible company? Not only have two sweet, previously healthy babies died, but I have one teetering on the edge and two looking questionable. I have lost thousands of dollars. These kittens were already sold, sold MONTHS before they were born, and now I have to tell them that their kittens are dead.
I’ve bred cats for five years now and have only ever had a single kitten die. Two, maybe three in a week, is the worst thing.
