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!!!!!

    Hope your little guy gets better soon. I know how it is to medicate cats that just won't let you do it.

  Hope your kitty feels better soon. Giving meds to any pet is usually a challenge, so wishing you the best.

    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

My spark friends

Monday, November 14, 2011

I can't say enough about how helpful my spark friends really are! I absolutely love them, and the worst part is, knowing you will never meet them face to face to be able to hug them. That is the hardest part. They have been so helpful in all facets of my life, not just weight loss.
This website is truly a godsend, otherwise we would never meet all these wonderful people.
Thank you is all I can say and it sounds so minute for all the help they have given me.
Loving you all!!

    You know, the thing is that you don't have be able to hug us in person, we "hug" each other each and every day that we come here and talk to each other! When you think about it, there are literally millions of people here, and we touch each other in a very special way, because God makes sure that we touch each other in the ways that we need! Is that not the greatest thing or what!?!

Boring

Sunday, November 13, 2011

I don't want to be boring, but I don't have anything new to say in my blog.
Walk 1 mile, Pilates and some yoga.
Sorry to bore you people.

    You are so regular and consistent with posting blogs. No need to apologize for being "boring". Would be difficult to come up with something exciting to post every day.

I suspect that posting, daily, about your exericse habits helps motivate you to keep up the good work.

WTG!
