Waaa... Wednesday

Right now I'm kind of a sick boy and having to take a lot of auntiebiotics (the auntie no one likes, as I see it), so for now I won't be around much as My Mummy is having to concentrate rather a lot of time and attention on me to get me better once more. The good thing is that I'm only 6 yrs old and pretty healthy, and My Mummy seems to have caught this before any real internal damage was done (paws crossed), so I have a reasonable chance of a full recovery. However she is all too aware that cats can and do die of this problem as it's very hard to catch, ID and cure - I guess it's lucky for me that My Mummy is very vigelent (not much sneaks by her), even if it does mean being pinned down and forced to take auntiebiotics a few times a day! That's the bit I hate, but My Mummy is doing her level best to make up to me by giving me only the bestest, yummiest chickens to eat and I can sleep on her bed all I want too! :)

One minute I was my normal self, the next I was one sick kitty... I gather I even have to try and gain some weight, once I'm better as it was a sudden weight loss that triggered My Mummy to realise I was masking the fact that I was sick from her. I've now had the lecture about naughty boys hiding things from their Mummy's always getting found out anyway 'cause Mummy's have special senses! Hubert the vet was impressed too as he thinks he'd have missed it himself had My Mummy not bought it to his attention. Well there you have yet one more reason why she's My Mummy, she just knows me far too well to miss even something as subtle as this parasitic gut infection...

Oh no!! What do you have that makes you have to take the icky medicines (I despise them myself)? I'll be purring so hard you can hear me across the ocean!

Duh...just re-read. That sounds like a horrible horrible thing to have! My vet is the same way, always tells the LL that she has an eagle eye. So glad your Mummy figured it out!

Oh Ramses, I am very sorry to read that you are sick. I hope you will get all better soon. I know your mom will take excellent care of you. I am sending purrs for your quick recovery.

We hope you will be on the mend soon Ramses, it is certainly no fun being sick and having to take those yucky antybiotics. Good thing your mom is quick to see you weren't well.

purrs,
