Finnegan came into foster as a 5-day old single orphan in reasonably good physical condition with excellent weight. He passed his intake exam with no problems and received his PenG injection. He was on half strength formula for the first day and is now on 75%, tomorrow he will transition to full strength formula. He has gained an ounce in just 36 hours, now weighs 7.9 ounces. Because he had a couple fleas, he also received a bath with Dawn liquid and we’ll observe closely for any sign of live fleas. Over the next few days, Finn will teach us a few hints for helping a single baby thrive. Hint for today is to wrap a wind-up alarm clock in fleece and let the ticking keep him company like his mom’s heartbeat or purrs and supply a furry stuffed toy for him to snuggle with.
