So Very Grumpy

Cloud: I am such a mad little kitty today. No food or water last night, and then Mom took me to visit some aliens. They made me sleepy and when I woke up I had no belly fur, and I'm a bit ouchy right now. I was apparently not very happy to see my brother, because I gave him some REALLY MEAN growls and hisses. So I got put in my room with some dinner, and nom-nommed a ton of food. The beans thought I might be ready to try again, but I still wanted to attack my brother, so we are quarantined for the rest of the day (we still were going to be put in seperate rooms for the night, but the beans were going to let us snuggle for a little while until I decided not to behave).

Niko: My sister is so wierd. She hates me right now, and I don't know what I did!! And then my day was stinky anyway, cuz I had to go to the V-E-T too! I still have a cold, so we are trying yet anofer anti-biotic!

Mom: Please send purrs to both my babies. Cloud is basically OK, but she does appear to be slightly uncomfy and I hope she stops hating her brother soon.
Niko also seems generally OK, and we may be getting closer to finding out what is behind all his upper respiratory infections. I asked that he be tested for FIV and leukemia today, and when they took him back to do so, the new doctor we had today asked me about his walk. We never mentioned this before, but he does have a slight wobble and tremor. His regular vet (there are several at this practice) felt it was something he would grow out of or maybe just a mild brain issue that he was born with that will just be there and cause no harm. Well, this vet noticed and thinks he may have Toxoplasmosis, which she says can cause both respiratory issues and neuro issues. We will have the results of all 3 tests probably on Friday. Until then, he is now on Clindamycin in addition to his Clavamox. The Clindamycin should help if it is Toxoplasmosis, and may help too if it is some other infection. Both cats are also on Lysine, by the way.

sometimes the vet says they smell bad- like the vet and the place they don't like. They suggest a dryer sheet- they'll smell exactly the same, and that vet smell will be gone!

I don't know if this will be any use or comfort, but Sen-Chan had two different cat flu viruses (herpes and calici) when he came to me. He was on medication for months. Now, at 15 months, he is big and energetic but he still sneezes, snurfles and coughs, more at certain times than others. The vet said he would probably always be like this, and not to constantly worry about it.

I hope both kitties feel better real soon. I will purr and purr for them both.

Mommie said to let you know that the pictures on my blog of Imp are very deceiving. From looking at your blog, I think she is about the same size as you are maybe just a tiny bit bigger. Which is about half the size of me.

I will have Mommie take some better pictures of her so you can judge her size better. Of course she might just be small from being hungry for so long.
