Thanks everyone!
She's been introduced to the Hoover this afternoon whilst Mummy got to grips with some overdue housework! She did really well, and only retreated once! On my lap (again) sleeping! Bless her cotton socks!

Glad she's ok not nice when they are not well. I was thinking the blip could have been the kitten milk it didn't agree with my two horrors  ;D

I've always adopted adult cats, so can't really contribute anything except all good wishes that Martha recovers soon.

Hello ladies!
Martha fine this morning had me up at 5.15 purring and meowing! Had kibbles by herself, no puke or diarohea evidence anywhere so just a blip! Vet pleased with her progress. She's put on 60g since Monday and temp normal but still 'skinny'..... She's on my lap now dreaming away, and booked in for first vaccination next Sat! Just got to wean her off her recovery AD food and onto kitten food proper but vet happy for her to have it bit longer!! Need to keep my eye on her bowls.....as we stopped antibiotics and laxative today!!!! :Luv: :Luv2:
Relieved, Marthas mummy

Doubt it will have been the spider, but mention it to the vet.  Sending tons of love.  Let us know how she is this morning

Poor Martha!
Having been bright and playful and eaten a few kibbles, kitten milk .... she just puked and then had diahrea in her litter tray. She's now sleeping in her little bed poor lamb but breathing quite quickly.
Naturally I'm now worried about her now. She has been eating spiders today and one big one. Any pearls of wisdom gratefully received.  :thanks: :scared:

Afternoon everyone!
Martha continues to do really well!
She's eating mainly by herself but sometimes needs a little encouragement. So affectionate, and really playful now. I've left her this afternoon to do a half day in the office which I think will be good for us both!!! Going to the vets tomorrow to get clean bill of health and hopefully no more syringe meds!!! Fingers crossed that she's over this horrid time.

Ah yes.  The lovely Marley (news of whom I have been deprived of, because Marley's Mum and dad are (quite rightly) too buys enjoying him to post about him  :evillaugh: )

Hello Martha's Mum and hello Martha.

She is so cute and tiny, love the pic on top of scratcher.

It's a worry when they won't eat but you seem to be doing all the right things. I can't add anything to whats already been said, the cat mums know best. I'm a cat dad.

Hope to see lots of pics of Martha

Oh Hollycat - dont do yourself an injustice.   :-: There are a number of knowledgable Cat Dads on here, and you're one of them.   After all, you know just the right cat sized space to make on your bookshelves to accommodate one standard sized cat.   :hug:

Aw that's such good news to hear!   ;D ;D  Clever little Martha.   :Luv:

I can just imagine how pleased you're feeling this morning.    :hug: :hug:

Isn't it lovely when you're the absolute centre of their world, and you cant move without having a Klingon?   :evillaugh:  When we had Ross, he used to suckle on my earlobe.  It was weird at first, but I quickly got used to it, and took it as a huge sign of his love and his trust in me.

Enjoy your playtimes today.  Wish I was kitten snuggling right now instead of working  :evillaugh:

Morning lovely mummies!
Martha continues to do well and ate kibbles during the night whilst we were asleep (I moved the bowls further away - thanks for the tip ladies). She came upstairs about 7 this morning meowing and purring so was very happy to see us both and have a lovely cuddle. She came downstairs and drank kitten milk, water and ate more kibbles. I then put some of her recovery food down and again a bit in my finger and she edged nearer to the plate and ate half!!!!! I've continued to put her back by her food and she's drinking water, kitten milk and finished of a 1/6th of a tin of recovery food this morning""" :Luv:
We decided to park the vet check this morning in favour of giving her a bit more time to settle and get into happy eating habits and knowing she's safe ......
I couldn't even go to the loo without her following me ......
Currently on my lap purring away, so I hope we have broken the back of things!!!!
Thank you all for your lovely messages and support  :thanks: :thanks:
