Coccidiosis!

Posted Oct 15 2012 12:15pm

We just got back from the vet. The bad news is that our little Prezzemolo has coccidiosis, which is a common parasitic infection of the intestinal tract, especially in kittens. So this came as no huge surprise, though we were hoping that he’d get a clean bill of health…

We’ve already begun treating him for it. It’s no big deal, really, since it was caught early (but I read online that it CAN, if left untreated, lead to death, aaaaagh!), but we will have to postpone the meeting between Prezzemolo and the rest of his new feline family for a couple of weeks. Treating ONE cat is one thing; treating SIX cats, quite another!!!

There is good news, though: apart from the coccidiosis, the vet told us that he’s purrrrrrfectly healthy. So this is just a minor nuisance…Oh, except that Stefano and I will have to keep sleeping apart…uffa!

Butwe’d do anything for our kitties…

P.S. Stefano took this photo of Prezzemolo yesterday…I howled with laughter when I first saw it (it looks like Prezzemolo is waving at the camera) and asked him if I could publish it on the blog…So here is an example of what Stefano can do with his big fancy camera! ;)
