Saturday Caturday

Rusty's Mom here. I wanted to let everyone know how he's doing, I gave him some Childrens' Liquid Benedryl this morning and of course, he didn't like it much. But, it made him spit out a lot of mucus. So, I called the vet and they had me bring him in to give him an antibiotic shot in case he has an infection and also another shot that will help him with his congestion. So, as you can see below, he's resting quietly now and I'll see how he does when he wakes up. I know that for us beans it's not always easy getting older and I sometimes think that's the same for our beloved kitties. Thanks everyone for being there, Rusty and I both appreciate it.

We hope the shots make you feel better and help with your breathing Rusty.

Benedryl is very bitter and will make a cat salivate ropey saliva and foamy spit. Sometimes it helps to give a pill instead but put it in a #3 gelatin capsule to hide the bad taste.

Rusty looks rough, with his spiky furs, so he must not be grooming himself because he is so congested?

We hope he feels better real soon!

hi Rusty and Rusty's mom. We are a bit behind but glad for the update - hopefully the shot worked out for him. We are still sending him lots of get better purrs and prayers! Sniffles are no fun for anyone but especially for an older kitty it must be rough.
