The Medicine

Kitties!  Guess what?  The medicine I am taking each day (I have 8 tablets left) has had another effect on me.  Not only am I better every day...and mommy said she had no idea just how badly I must have been feeling before the diagnosis (for several months) until she sees me now..all happy and active.

But the other great thing is my coat is like satin again and NO, not one, dry skin flakes.  There is no steroid so therefore that isn't it.  I just am finally getting well.  Mom feels badly that she didn't know I was ill.  She thought I was just "slowing down".  I have to a degree but not to the extent it seemed.  AND I am a bed hog again as I haven't been for awhile.  I lay like a log along side mom and she won't move.  Well, she finally did last night after quite a time.  Ah.  I rule the bed as well as the waves.

Mom said she is going to ask the pet sitter for some weekend in October so she can visit other favorite brother before the snow in the mountains is an issue.  And it will be.  I won't like that visit at all as it leaves me with no one but the sitter twice a day.  Mom has decided she won't think about me until she is close to home on the way back again unless the pet sitter emails something that needs attention as she needs to have a break too.  Just like me.

Look at the wall hanging at the v-e-t's examining room for me!




and look at the tee shirt mom wishes she had!  Other favorite brother sent the picture.  I know who she would vote for!!!

  1. Katie, we are so glad you are feeling better! That's wonderful news. And our Mom feels for your Mom; she knows how hard it can be to tell these things, especially when you live with someone, it's often not obvious. Especially with us felines.

  8. I'm so happy that you are getting better, Katie! Sometimes it's hard for humans to tell how we are feeling - too bad we can't tell them in way they understand. My human loves that T-shirt and wishes she had thought of it herself.

  9. Katie, it is scary, the lady says, how easy it is to miss how we kitties are feeling. We hide it so well and sometimes it's quite subtle. The quilt in your vet's office is so pretty!

  24. Katie san, I'm very happy you are feeling so much better. How wonderful your mom can even see it on your coat. She shouldn't feel too bad for not knowing you were ill...kitties hide their illnesses really well. She is wonderful to take such care of you :-) I love the wall hanging. It's very cute!!

  34. Katie! We love the t-shirt and We were wondering - why haven't you officially announced your candidacy yet for Purrsident??? (Or did We somehow miss it?)

  35. Katie, that is such wonderful news! Mom wishes she could feel how silky your fur is now.

  36. Dearest Katie-Isabella,
    Oh my, you feel like the very same as I do... going away is heart breaking for leaving our six fur babies behind. But we did on Sunday afternoon till yesterday afternoon. We went to Atlanta for Chloe Agnew's (former Celtic Woman singer) with the Atlanta Pops Orchestra, an Irish tenor and former River dance dancer. We had such a wonderful time! But in the car on the way home I felt like wanting to call our babies...
    Weird but that's how the heart is tugging us.
    You can now travel in peace since your baby is doing a lot better! Oh, we too know that difference between shiny hair or dull hair that is hard to cuddle with.
    And yes, coming home after having been in the hotel, of course Barty plants his entire cat body like a log beside me and stays put. After all, it is HIS bed and he tolerates his humans to sleep with him. How generous of him.
    Happy to read all the news here and okay, go ahead and detach yourself for a while and unwind in a way... We all need a break once in a while!!!
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  37. We are so glad that you are feeling better, Katie! We hope you continue to feel better with each passing day.

    That T-shirt is pawesome, by the way!

  38. Oh Katie, so wonderful you're feeling well again. So very, VERY WONDERFUL, indeed. If your coat is looking shiny and you're back to hogging the bed, it sounds like you're doing super well. Please tell your mum to not feel badly. We kitties do tend to hide stuff about our health. Just something we do. Don't know why. We just do. And that t-shirt? MOUSES! You know if they make them in marmie cat sizes? I could wear something like that, myself!

    Purrs,
    Seville
