Exercising

Sunday, November 20, 2011

Today I went to the movie with my teenage daughter (the movie was called 'Happy Feet Two') and while watching the movie I even exercised! I exercised my leg by lifting it up, and then setting it down normally for 50 times.
My legs are pretty big so it was a very constructive exercise. I felt the soreness after finishing each leg!
The cat is eating much better and had quite a bit of water today. he is healing wonderfully!! I am very happy!

    I should do that while any sitting as it will help. My legs are getting flabby from the weight loss so that may help. Thanks for the suggestion!!!

Glad kittie is doing good!

sick cat

Friday, November 18, 2011

Today I have a sick cat who is vomiting and not eating. I feel so sorry for the poor boy. We went to the vet this morning and he thinks it is a respiratory infection.
He doesn't want to even eat.
The doctor gave him a shot of penicillin, and then he gave us an antibiotic to take home to give him by mouth. This cat hates taking anything by mouth so this will be a battling week.
At least the poor thing should be feeling better tomorrow, the vet says.

    Thank you all for the support!
He is fighting the medicine a lot, but, we have 1 person to hold him, and 1 to give the medication, so we are able to do it anyways. I hate doing this to him but it is for his own good.
Love and Hugs to all of you!!!!!

    Sometimes when I can't get one of our kitty's to eat we use baby food (meat w/o onion powder) or plain chicken breast meat. Also we always keep a can or two of special canned cat food for these occasions. Good luck and I am sure your baby will be on the road to recovery very soon. Take care....Kelly

PS: As far as giving your kitty medication, I crush(if pill) or take apart a capsule; mix with a little baby food meat (turkey or chicken), and syringe the kitty slowly as not to let him aspirate any of it. I have a kitty that has to take hyperthyroid medicine 2x a day and that is how we do it....she now looks forward to her "treat"...LOL

    Awwwww. I'm so sorry about your sick baby. I hope the antibiotics will help soon. We joke that we are running our own vet clinic here since we have to administer so many pills, fluids, injections, gels etc.

We use a pet piller to administer the pills. It has been a lifesaver. The only catch is to make sure it has no parts that can come off and be swallowed, because, yep - we had that happen once! I highly recommend this one:

Medication help

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Someone told me about the site www.needymeds.com and it is supposed to be helpful in letting you know how to get the best deal on any prescription medications you take.
I hope this helps somebody.

    Needymeds is a wonderful site. If anyone needs help obtaining their rx medications and have questions shoot me an email....I used to do this for a living at a senior center. Would be happy to help as sometimes it can be a little confusing. Take care...Kelly
