More Good News


See that mousie? I am getting ready to whap it up into the air! It fell in the track of my Turbo Scratcher, which made Mom laugh. She scooted it around the track a little ways, but I just fished it out again with my mighty claws and threw it around some more. I still feel great and am still making lumpy poop. Mom went out this morning and she smelled like the v-e-t when she came back.

Karen Jo: I went to get you some more medicine, Herman.

Yuck!

Karen Jo: Aww, Herman, you know that the medicine is making you feel better. I have some good news for you, too. Once you finish up your antibiotic that you hate so much, you don't have to take it any more until next month. You only have to take the Centrine until your poop gets back to normal. If everything goes well, you will have some time when you only have to get your Prednisol and your Interferon, neither of which you mind taking at all. Best of all, you don't have to go back to the vet again, unless something happens.

That sounds good. I am so glad that I feel better. Mom and I played soccer when she got home tonight. I really missed that. I am glad that the weather is warming up a bit, too. Now Mom will stick her arms out from under the covers and cuddle me more. I love it when she stretches her arm out to make a pillow for me. She doesn't even mind petting me in the middle of the night, at least for a little while.

Karen Jo: I love it when you pat my cheek with your paw to let me know that you want petting. I really do believe that you have gained a pound. I've checked three times now and each time I come up with a ten pound difference in our weights.

I finally let Mom see me eating my green pea and duck food. It was driving her nuts that she thought I was eating some of it, but just a tiny bit at a time. I am nibbling at all my dry foods and eating more of my pea and duck and kitten chow. I am eating most of my Medley and some of my Stinky Goodness, too. I just wish that the weather would settle down, so we could have open windows.

Karen Jo: So do I. I wanted to open the windows yesterday and today, because it was warm enough, but the wind was blowing something fierce.

We're pleased to hear you are still eating better and are interested in playing - you know you have to toss things about so the Mums have to run round and pick them up cos it keeps them fit.

Way to go, Herman. We like to read these posts, they make us so happy. Mom laughed about you patting your mom's cheek for petting. She thinks that's so cute. But I don't think she would like it if I did it to her.

This makes me happy Herman!
I am so glad you are feeling better.
I have been taking terrible tasting medicine too for my tummy. It tastes like poison and I thought maybe mom was trying to poison me, but dad said no.

Keep feeling better and enjoying your toys and good food
