Here At My Home Again

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.

  1. We're glad you're home, Katie, and you and your mom are right, if it's a cold virus there's nothing to be done. Someone on Brian's blog (re: Gracie) suggested a humidifier to help with breathing, if you have that issue. Sending lots of healing purrs and purrayers to you all.

    Blessings and Light.

  2. Katie we know it does both you and your Mom good for you to be home. Kea is right a humidifier if you have one may be a good thing to help clear your congestion. Is there any other Vet you feel might be good to get another opinion? We are purring for you to feel better and for your brother to feel better and your Mom to feel better. We'll be purrin and praying.

    ((hugs))

  4. We are *all* glad and relieved that you are home, Katie, especially your Mom. It is quite true that there is no medication that will get rid of or cure a cold virus. You can only treat the symptoms. You have a nice rest and let Mom pamper you...after all, as a kitty, you deserve pampering! :-)

    The spelling was correct except that it is one word, not two. A "rhino virus" is probably a virus that affects rhinoceroses. :-)

    Here is a web page about rhinovirus infections in cats:

  5. Mom and I really hoped you were able to come home today! I'm sure the humans at your vet's office are very caring but there's no place like the edge of a warm bed.

    When it comes to sniffles and runny eyes, M gives Viralys L-lysine powder. It did wonders for Rocky and she usually keeps some around. Our vet's office recommended it as it has anti-viral properties and can be used as a first line of defense for the rhino virus. Big plus? We like the taste! http://www.entirelypets.com/vetsoluviralys.html

    It comes with a little scoop so there's nothing to measure.

  6. Sweetheart, you remember how congested I was when I had the sneezies recently? Mommy put a humidifier next to my cage and that helped a lot! Do you have a humidifier? If you don't, you can hang out in the bathroom when Mommy and favorite Brovver have a nice hot shower. :)

    I am glad you are home now because there's no better place to recuperate than to be among your loved ones. xoxo

    We are all purring for you to make a full recovery quickly!

    Much love, Your Boomie

  8. Oh Katie, we are so glad you're home.

    Our Mommy runs the vaporizer for us. It might work for you, too.

  10. We're so glad you're home Katie and we hope you get better soon! We don't doubt for one second that your mom loves you very much and would never have left you if you'd be totally alone at the v-e-t. She did what was best for you and she'll always do that but now you are home recuperating with your brovver and we are purring you both are better very soon! Hugs to you mom!

  11. Hi darling girl, I am verreh glad to read your urine test was clear AND that you drank and drank and even ATE some. If you don't have a humidifier or vaporizer, your Mommy could just put a big pan of water to simmer on the stove. The Human's mom used to do that a lot in the winter when the cold air gets so dry.

    I think you will feel better in a couple of days--the Human has had one a them Rhinoscerus-things since last weekend and she is still snuffling and coughing some. A cold will run its course eventually, but too bad we kitties can't blow on command, MOL! Let me know when you're up for a visitor UTB, darling XOXOXO

  13. We're glad you're home, Katie. It sounds like you and your brovver can convalesce together. At least that way, your mom can worry about you in the same place and not one in the human hospital and one in the veterinary one. We agree that a humidifier may help, or just visiting the bathroom while the shower is running, if you don't have a humidifier. If the shower steam helps, your mom would know that getting a humidifier would be a worthwhile investment for your cold. We are purring for both you and your brovver to feel better soon!

  17. We are glad you are home, Katie, and with your brother too.

    Would a change in vet/vet clinic possibly be an option? If you picked up the rhino virus (assuming that's what it is) at the vet's?

    Lots of loud ad rumbly purrs to you, Sweet Friend,
    The Chans

  18. Oh i'm so glad you are home with your Mom and brother Katie! They love you so very, very much. I hope you get completely better soonest. Being sick is so hard on everyone. One of our kitties had a rhino virus last fall, and was horrible indeed! Maybe you need a different vet? My husband and i changed veterinarians a few years ago, because we were uncomfortable with the way our former one diagnosed and treated our four kitties. But your Mom knows best, and will decide the right thing! Hugs sweetie!

  31. Katie, you and I know how upset and worried our moms can get when we're not feeling well. I am glad you are home now. And home with not only your mom, but your favorite brother, too.

  33. Well Katie dear girl I'm glad you're home again....I've heard on some other bloggies about the allergies that kind of make your skin ripple and twitch and it seems to be somewhat of a real mystery for many kitties! Anyway, you're there and you're with your Mom and brother and I know there's no place else you'd rather be. I also know your Mom will take care of you in the very best way she can with all the love in the world. That's all that matters!

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  34. I know your happy to be home with Mom and brother, and i know they are delighted to have you there. You and brother are under the best care with Mom. Moms are the best nursies. You both get well.

    ReplyDelete
  35. We hope you feel better soon, Katie. It will be easier on your mom to have you and your brother in one place. If you don't get better perhaps a different vet should be considered.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Katie, if that happens to me, mom will bring me to the vet too. She is very afraid. Like now, i haven't been eating much again... Mom is worried. I hope you'll be better soon, katie. The hell house is no fun.

  40. Get well, Katie. You and your brother need to get well so your mom can relax. This has been a terrible time for her too.

    ReplyDelete
  41. We're very glad you are home, Katie. We hope you will start to feel better quickly. If your mom still questions the vet's diagnosis, maybe she can get a second opinion. Even if it turns out to be the same, it might help her feel better too.

  43. Hi Katie, I had asked about your being left alone at the hospital and was so worried about that. I can imagine how scared your mom was. I am just glad to know that efurrybuddy at the hospital was being checked on and taken care of during the holiday. I am much happier that you are home so you and your mom and favorite brother can all stay warm, cozy and snuggly together. Please feel better soon. Hugs, Janet and Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
