Getting Along


Here's another picture of me taken a few days ago. Mom hasn't been taking pictures of me lately.

Karen Jo: I have been feeling a bit bummed out for the last few days, Herman. I am coming out of it now. Thank you to everyone for all your good wishes and prayers. Herman seems to be feeling a bit better, despite the ongoing poop puddles.

I knocked my new glitter ball around the kitchen some while Mom was at work today and we rolled my nip ball back and forth three of four times when she got home. Mom is getting sneaky with my daily squirt. Today there was a great sun spot on my platform and I was sound asleep in it. Mom sneaked up on me and although I woke up as she got close, she had my head in one hand and was squirting my Interferon in my mouth with the other hand before I quite knew what was happening. I was so surprised that I just lay there and watched while she got my Temptation. I ate it.

Karen Jo: You have been much more accepting of your Interferon squirt the last few days, Herman. I hope that is because you are getting used to it and not because you are feeling too yucky to fight it. I do think you are feeling a bit better, so I think that you are just getting used to it. I am so glad that you don't mind your medicine in your ear at all.

You always give me my ear medicine just after you brush me. I love getting brushed so much that I am too happy to mind a little ear rub. I hope I don't have to go back to the vet again.

Karen Jo: I am afraid that you will have to go again early next week. If your poop puddles don't stop by Monday, we have to go back and try something else. Maybe a change in food is what you need.

I hope it's not yucky food, if that is the case.

Karen Jo: Your vet carries the Hills Science brand and if you don't like that, maybe I can find that duckpea stuff that was recommended. I am feeling much better about you now. I can tell that you aren't feeling really sick and you are acting almost normally. You still talk to me a lot and grumble at me when I don't get up early enough for your breakfast. You are eating and drinking normally. You are still a happy cat, purring and coming up to me for scritches and walking around with your tail up, with the little curl at the end. The only real difference is that you aren't quite as active as you were before the poop puddles started.

We're sending lots of healing Light, Herman. Single-source protein food is often good to try, a protein that you haven't had before, maybe. We do know how difficult this is for your mom, how worrying and frustrating and often exhausting, to get things sorted out. (((Hugs))) to your mom and kitty kisses to you.

it took me many trys to find a food that kintaro liked and wouldn't give him poop puddles. we buy avo derm and sprinkle about an 1/8th of a teaspoon of benefiber on it. he loves it and eats it all. we get the fish flavors.

Rather good news ! You know Karen, cats don't always play, from what I read he plays a lot. Arthur doesn't play at all only Rosie and the two others are far too lazy they are laying around the whole day !
I give Rosie also the Hills Science brand for sensible stomac and easy digestion. It costs a fortune and I only feed her with it, because she is fragile with stomac and intestins.

We're glad you're playing and eating! Those have to be good signs.

Tamir used to get medicine in his ear. Mom said his coat got super luxurious when she did that.
