Saturday evening I noticed Charlie wasn't as active as he usually is, and after scooping him up for some snuggles I realized he also felt quite warm. Normal cat temperature ranges from 99.5-102.5 and Charlie's clocked in at 103.8, putting me on high alert. Sunday morning his temp was still 103.8 so I began fluids and a broad spectrum antibiotic and continued monitoring him in case we needed to rush to the emergency vet.
His temperature went down a bit and was 102.9 before we went to sleep. This morning it was normal at 101. If you remember, Charlie had a mysterious high fever about 2.5 weeks ago, so a second mystery fever has me pretty stressed 😔 We were able to see our vet first thing this morning and we're doing a full work up and started treating him prophylactically with a different antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, and more fluids. Blood tests should come back later today or tomorrow.
Please keep Charlie in your thoughts and send him good vibes ♡
