Just Getting Along


Here's a picture of me from last week getting a drink of water. I haven't been cooperating for the camera lately. Every time Mom points it at me, I walk right up to it and sniff it. Not much has changed since we blogged last. Sorry it's been so long.

Karen Jo: I have been coming home from work really tired and just go to bed.

I have been sleeping up on the couch or on a chair lately, rather than in my bed. It's warmer and we get an open window almost every day now. I am mostly eating my food with my medicine in it, though I didn't eat my pro-biotic today. Mom is threatening to syringe it into me before she goes to bed. Ha! The last time she tried to syringe my fiber into me it didn't work well at all. I am still making pudding poop and getting it all over my litter box and over the edge.

Karen Jo: I got the idea of putting puppy pads all around your box and that is working out quite well.

Sometimes I pee on the puppy pad instead of in the box, but Mom doesn't seem to mind.

Karen Jo: That's OK, Herman. It's what they are for, actually. I think you need all new litter. I'll get you some tomorrow.

I haven't gotten furminated yet. Things keep happening to keep Mom busy when she is supposed to be taking care of me.

Karen Jo: I am still taking good care of you, Herman. You get fed, medicated, petted and brushed. I just haven't had the time to furminate you yet. Maybe tomorrow.

I am a bit more interested in food sometimes. I got Mom up at four in the morning to feed me again. I haven't done that in a long time.

Karen Jo: I was glad to do it. You had eaten up all your fiber food and part of your Stinky Goodness. That made me very happy. I just wish I could get enough food into you for you to gain some weight. I can still feel your backbone when I pet you.

Herman, it's good news that you are chugging along ok and being interested in your fuuds a bit more. You really have a great Mom, look at that line of fuud bowls, all full too. We wish our Mum would leave us lots of bowls of fuud out all day, can we come visit with you?

Keep up the eating Herman!

Herman, our mom used to have to put down pee pads all around our litter boxes for Cal's poop puddles. They worked very well for that purpose. We wish you were eating more and not making poop puddles. We hope you get to feeling better really soon!!!

Herman, we are glad to hear that you are getting your human up early to feed you! Good for you! I hope that continues.

Oh Herman we are glad you are eating a bit better but we wish you would eat more and put on some weight! And the pudding poop isn't great but at least it is a bit better then it had been. Maybe the warm weather has an effect - I swear my cats loose a little weight as it gets warmer. We are still sending you lots and lots of purrs and prayers!!

We hope you can put on some weight Herman and that you will be feeling better soon. Please let you mom syringe you. It's important you get that stuff inside you.

Hi Herman!!
after your mom cleans your box really well and puts brand new litter in, have her bring a very fresh poop sample in to the vetplace. Sometimes old litter hides things in poops - the fresh new litter might find what is causing your poops to be so runny.
I hope today you have an open window and sunshine!
Here, we will have rain all day but the birdies are out and that makes me glad!
