The topic: There’s some sort of virus going through the house

----------------------------------------------

I first noticed it about a month ago. DaNiece got sick. Right before our Disney trip. It started at the beginning of the week. She was much better by the end of the week, but she was pretty punky for a couple of days.

Then a couple of weeks ago, it was Sagway. I did the same thing with him I did with DaNiece. Tried hand feeding him and gave him fluids. It lasted a couple of days with him.

Then last night, Skippy didn't come running in at night. He did Saturday, he didn't last night. Now, he's sick. I noticed this morning that he was pretty dehydrated so I gave him 60cc of lactated ringers. I brought him in from outside (it's cold and the sun wasn't up yet) and put him on the bed. He napped. Now he's back outside. I've been watching him.

I did see him walking around the yard, then he started digging. Okay, I'll get to see what he potties. And it was pretty runny. Not as bad as what I'd seen from DaNiece and Sagwa (their's was really nasty), but he does have diarrhea. He's walking like his tummy hurts, so did DaNiece and Sagwa. 

I got the jump on his fluids, with those two I gave them on day three. This is day one for Skip. 

Right now he's laying in the grass by the pool. It's warm in the sun, the air is fresh, I'm sure it isn't a bad thing for him to be there. I'll keep a close eye on him, though.
