OK, just keep an eye on her.


I always got clues about my kids health by testing their
body temperatures. The body temperature of a cat is
between 38 and 39 °C. Try to do the pulse rate a couple
times to see if you can get an undisturbed rate.
A normal cat heart rate ranges from 140 to 220 beats
per minute, and is largely dependent on how excited
the cat is. For a cat at rest, the average heart
rate usually is between 150 and 180 bpm, about
twice that of a human (average 80 bpm).
Good luck with it.
Aside:
My resting heart rate has never gone over 70 BPM, ever!

She's only sneezed once or twice today, I haven't seen Grace since Her dinner. Speak of the devil, here She is now, She's eating Her dinner.

Grace seems ok now, She's not sneezing and She feels cooler too, sounds like She'd just gotten a feline cold when she went next door.

Tinkerbell had a feline cold and needed anitbiotics. Take Grace to a Vet. She is more important then Comp parts.
Money is not easy to comeby here, but none of the six will miss a Vet visit when needed.

Grace does not have a cold or whatever anymore, She is not sneezing and Her appetite is back with a vengeance, She also feels cooler than I felt Her on Wednesday, She emptied Her dinner bowl on Thursday, which the day before on Wednesday She did not do, I am not trying to buy anything right now, nor can I for that matter. I am not made of money Uli.

I usually take my bp first thing when I wake up. (It's been very good lately, almost worryingly low. I'll talk to the doctor about it soon.) The machine also gives the heart rate, of course, and that's doing nicely too, about 60 plus or minus a couple.

Thank you, everyone, for all of the wonderful raccoon name suggestions. Five surviving kits is the biggest litter I've seen! At this point I cannot tell any of the babies apart, with the exception of one who has particularly light fur. Pilar waited a very long time to bring her litter by and chances are I will still be confused as to which raccoon is which when the babies are weaned.

I have therefore decided that the names most suitable for this litter are James Sotherden's entry: "Who, What, When, Where, and Why".

The light furred raccoon will be Who, because he's on first... er... uh... I mean he (she???) was identified first.

And of course, now I can pretend that Eric is calling raccoons for me when I head outside with grapes and Eric, with hands raised dramatically to the heavens, exclaims "Why???!!! Why???!!! Why???!!!"

There was a Wednesday in a previous litter, Vic. In fact, I believe you named her and were therefore her godfather.
