Tummy and Toes Tuesday

This is a good day for tummies and toes, I think.


I had to go back to the V E T. I was sneezing and snotting and Mom was afraid I got an Upper Respiratory Infection from being at the Hospital overnight. The V E T said that it looked like it was not an infection, but just a virus (spelled Kitty Cold) that maybe I caught while I was there. She gave me a shot, just in case. But, I'm still sneezing, just not so bad now. Wonder how long these cold things last? It's been a week now and Mom is still a bit concerned. The V E T also gave Mom some pills that are supposed to perk up my appetite, I've lost a half pound in the last year and Mom was concerned that maybe I wasn't eating enough (those Moms are ALWAYS concerned about SOMETHING!) But, man do those pills work! I was so starving! I ate like a horse! Mom thinks maybe I'll gain a little weight back. I just hope this cold thing goes away soon. I don't like having a cold!

We're sorry your not feeling well, Rusty! Colds can last about a week or so...we bet you'll be feeling better real soon...it's good that you're eating better too!

When Wally was a babycat, he sneezed for about 3 weeks!!! Even with taking antibiotics!!

cat colds are a little like human colds...our immune system usually gets us over it in 10 days or so, but it takes longer when you are young or old sometimes. 80% of cats have been exposed to cold viruses (herpes, calici and chlamydia) and some can lay dormant in your body til a period of stress, and then show up like 3 days later...least that's what our mewmie says...and she works for a cat vet. L-Lysine helps, as well as saline nose drops and antibiotics to help with the bacterial part of it.

URIs are yucky! We hope you get better soon. It's great to see that those pills work so well and you're eating better.

You look adorable today, Rusty

We are sorry you are not feeling up to par. Kirby was sneezing last week. He had to take a liquid that smelled like bananas. He hated it. But it stopped the sneezing.

Oh it is too bad you have a cold. We have kitties who sneeze from allergies but not often with colds, so I can't imagine what that is like. I hope you feel better soon! And keep eating!!

It is not fun to be sneezing and snotting, especially if you don't have a tissue handy☺
