Thankful Thursday and Rusty Update

Here I am giving Mom the laser eyes to impress her while she takes my photo with her new picture box she got for Christmas. As you can see, I can get up in my window perch more easily thanks to Mom's thoughtfulness getting me the little bench to climb up with. I am thankful for my Mom and my window perch. I can watch all the snow fall outside (but I'm not thankful for the snow, it can go away any time now. I HATE snow!)

Rusty's Mom here. Thanks everyone for the thoughts and suggestions. We have a whole house humidifier attached to the furnace because I have so many issues in the wintertime with dry air (I get nosebleeds all the time without the humidity.) Rusty seems kind of phlemmy and congested so I'm going to try some benedryl on him. The vet said that I could give him 1/2 teaspoon of Childrens' Benedryl to see if that helps. I just have to get to the store and we're in the midst of a snow storm right now so I might have to wait until tomorrow. But, I'll give it a try and see if it helps. It scares me so much when he starts that wheezing and he acts like he can't get his breath. Keep him in your thoughts. Thanks so much for all of you being here to help.

Rusty we agree with you about the snow - it can leave here soon! We have a storm too (probably part of the same one you are in)

And that is great that you can give him a bit of benadryl - hopefully it will do the trick. With this crazy weather lately I wouldn't be surprised if it was causing the problem (I know my sinuses are messed up from it). We are still sending lots of purrs and prayers for Rusty to be better soon!
