Lucy at Home

Was able to pick Lucy up this afternoon from the vet's office. I was sent home with antibiotics, appetite stimulants, anti -nausea pills and a piller. She is to take the antibiotic 2x a day for the next 4 weeks. Dr. B. said it's the 2nd worst infection she has seen. Hoping she starts eating soon or they may have to tube feed her.
I've spoken to the boys and tried to get them to understand they are NOT to torment her at all!
"I do NOT torment.  I merely like to point out her faults in a highly visible  and vocal manner."

"I'm innocent, Mom.   I don't know why you accuse me of such things!"

Mysterious Lucy

The vet just called and said that she wants to try another antibiotic on Lucy. This one is more effective in treating her infection. The only trouble is it can make her sick. So --she is wondering if I can drop Lucy off at her "kitty clinic" over the weekend to get her started on the twice a day pills and monitor her reaction to it. I would be able to pick her up on Sunday with instructions on how to give her the antibiotic and the anti- nausea pills. Technically, I know this would be best for her as I need to be out and about for part of the weekend. The other part of me just wants her at home with me.

The vet told me I could take Lucy home today after work They were able to complete all the tests. Dr. B said that Lucy has a very bad urinary tract infection, possibly even a kidney infection. She thinks that is why Lucy is not eating/drinking like she used to. The vet gave Lucy an injection of antibiotics and asked me to bring her in next Monday for another needle. The trick now is to get her to eat. I have many sample of food to try from the vet's office but none seem to interest her. I've just finished brushing Lucy and giving her tiny between the ear kitty kisses. She is purring.
Purrs and prayers for her recovery are always appreciated.

Lucy Part 3-the vet called and told me Lucy was going to spend the night there.  They need to get a urine sample and her bladder is not cooperating.  I'm hoping (praying) I get to pick her up tomorrow after work.  I miss that cute little face begging for more and more food.
Update-Brought Lucy in to see the vet this morning-again-she hasn't been eating and the vet can't see what's wrong with her.  I have to leave Lucy there while they run tests.  It is very hard walking home without her in the carrier. Will keep you posted.

The kitty brats decided that a rainy, cold Saturday deserved a lot of cuddling down nap times.
It's fuzzy because of the low light. I couldn't turn on the flash, though, and risk waking them. Could I?
Any cat-owned person knows the answer =)

Hello peoples,
I had my yearly vet visit today! Mom is so pleased that I have lost a bit of weight! I'm down to 12.2 pounds. Just a couple of years I was 15 pounds. Mom is the only person is the western hemisphere who doesn't own a car, and since it was so lovely and cool and crisp outside, she decided to walk me to the vet's office. The vet is about a 15-20 minute walk-one way. I cried piteously all the way down. Mom talked "baby" talk to me telling me how nice the vet was and how beautiful I was. My favorite part was when somebody overheard her talking to me and gave us a "look" when they passed us. Tee hee. Crazy Mom.
The long and short of it is Dr. B said I was sweet, beautiful and healthy!
She gave me a catnip toy when I left. Mommy got the bill :)
Have a great week everyone!

Had a fun, company filled weekend!
Mom came for a visit on Saturday and we had lots of fun shopping.
Went out with some friends on Sunday for lunch and a bit of shopping at Marshall's.
The kitty brats lucked out there as I found them a super duper scratching post =)
They all seem to like it which is unusual.

Oi, Mom, don't think your sofa is safe now!

Enjoy your week!
