Traumatic Tuesday


Yesterday was terrible, just terrible. Mommy came home early from work and I thought "cool, someone to wait on me." Well, not long after that, I was snatched from my sofa slumber and shoved into my PTU.

See, I'd been sneezing since Sunday morning and rubbing my snout on stuff for a couple of days. I tried to tell mommy it was because she hasn't dusted in a squillion years, but she didn't buy it.

So we got to the VET and before I could do more than gouge mommy's wrist, I was stuffed into the "happy box" and gassed. When I woke up later I thought it was a bad dream except my spot #13 hurt and it felt like I had shots. That pissed my off but I was to tired to fight. Bendrix was still dreaming of skipping thru a field chasing butterflies with the pink hippos in tutus.


Turns out, I have a Resperatory Virus. It was caught early and isn't in my lungs.
Still, I'm on 20 days of anti-biotiks and will start an immune stimulator in a couple of weeks. The VET thinks with all the stress of July (daddy being gone, than mommy being gone, then mommy and daddy working lots) I got sick. With my FIV, that is not unusual.

Since I'll have an immune system stimulator now, hopefully that will help prevent me from getting sick from this type of stress again.

I'm taking it easy today. Mommy's VERY VERY nice boss called this morning cause she heard I was sick and told mommy to stay home with me. I'm still angry with her for taking me to the VET and shooting anti-biotiks down my throat last night, but maybe I'll let her love on me later. I'm glad she is here. She is scheduled to Work From Home tomorrow so I'll have her then too.


Any purrs you can send me would be appreciated.


The bright side is that the anti-biotik could cause my to have "loose stool." It will be fun to watch my beans clean that up! snigger

Guess what! I'm happier already cause Huffle Mawson gave me this:

Lets see, I'll pass this on to:
Hendrix's
Pablo in Australia
Willie Snapp
The Cat Street Boyz Gang
Tyler at Tyler's Tattles
William of Mass Destruction
Bendrix's
Victor Tabbycat
Brandi

I'm so sorry that you aren't feeling well and had to go to the v-e-t yesterday. Willow and I will send over some nice soft purrs for you. I'm glad that your mom's nice boss let her stay home with you. I love it when my mom is at home with me!

Purrrrrrrrrs, China Cat

We are so sorry you are sick! Binky, our beautiful black FIV sister who came before us had to be so careful to stay away from sick kitties. We didn't know you were FIV too. She lived to the ripe ol' age of 13. We will keep you in our purrayers and thoughts that you get better real soon.

What a nice boss your mommie has! Ours has a nice boss too and lets her bring us to work if we need watching.

{{{HUGS}}}

Sorry you had to go to the vet! If they said you had feline herpesvirus, you might want to ask your vet about lysine. We get it from the vitamin store, much cheeper there. Not all vets will automatically suggest it yet since it hasn't been "proven", but it worked for me! Hope you feel better soon!

Full Monty Q said...

Aw, Hendrix, I's sorry yur vet trip was yucky. I didn't get to see any flyin purple mousies dis time. I just sat on E. Kay Gee's lap so she could take pictors of my heart.
Hopefully wif the medicines, you an Bendrix will be all the way better in no time.
Purrs!
PS what a nice boss-lady yur mom has! Mom's boss-man is ok, but not THAT nice!

Hi Mr. Hendrix! I am so sorry you are sicky. We will be purrings lots and lots for you. You and Bendrix are very strong, so I am sure you will get well soon. Maybe you can take a pic of your mommy cleaning your loose stools and put it on your blog to punish her for going away. I hate that too. Also thanks for tagging me. I will get to the meme tonight!

Purrs and purrs, Halloween

Poor Mr. Hendricks a running nose is not funny ! Lisa has a running eye but that is due to her grandma age. I am so happy that the vet found out immediately what you had, now, be a good boy and take your pills without trying to kill your mom !

Hey buddy thanks for the award, that's so cool of you! That totally stinks that you had to go to the VET and get all of that done to you, and to make you go to sleep so you couldn't defend yourself is just wrong. I hope the icky medicines will help you get better really soon.

We're sorry you aren't feeling so well, and had to visit the VET. Stress can definitely cause sneezing and respiratory virus. Luna got sneezy after our big move in February, which was quite stressful.
