Kitties, I am home. I drank and drank when I got home and had some wet food to eat. I let mom hold me a little while and she heard my snuffle and stuffy nose. :-( While I was gone I got a shot for my allergies. Not sure what else as there was no charge except for my urinalysis which was clear.
They still maintain that this is largely allergies, mom does not. Yes, I have them but the shot would have taken care of that. Mom called the Vet again and there was a voice mail for mom while her phone crashed to the floor and broke apart. Essentially that if it is a rhino virus (sp) it will have to work its way thru. You can't give antibiotics for a cold.
A person commented on my last blog and said "why is it better to go to the Vet hospital if there is no one there to take care of you? Can't your mom take care of you till they return to work"
This is a question that needs and deserves an answer, so here goes. Mom was afraid for me and had tears when she was advised to leave me there again. I had been lethargic, sleeping in one place for hours at a time, eating little, drinking too little, sneezing and made odd little jerking movements under the skin plus I was incessantly licking my lips. I did not play and I did not sleep with mom nor did I bring toys in to her..just once and only one. That's why mom took me back to my Dr. The long and the short of it? She was afraid. As for waiting several days here at the house, I needed to be seen and assessed then, not days later. I got a shot, something for nausea and assessed that moment half an hour before they closed for the Holiday. There were people there at given times to keep watch on all of the woofies and kitties there in the hospital, medicate and talk to the Dr. None of us did without anything except our dear families.
I am in on favorite brother's bed after I drank and drank. Had that bite to eat and now, I am curled on the bed's soft blanket.
I know mom will do all she can to help me and make me comfy. She loves me so.
Mom also has my fave brother here while he recuperates and we are ALL so grateful for each warm and loving well wishes for him and for me, and for my mom as well. You are the beauty of the blogging community and the reason we are all truly a family.
