Luvs-Food ...

I wrap my kitties pills in cheese or ham...they think its a treat..they come running and jumping up...so I give it to both..one w/pill and one without.
Their favorite treat however is called Live a Littles they are whole chicken treats made by a natural pet co. called Halo. They are a bit costly and my husband thinks Im out of my mind but the kittens cry when they see me get out the bottle...you can even break the cubes up and sprinkle on food..amazing how they will start eating what moments before they snubbed.
As far as I'm concerned there is very little I wouldn't do for Pyewacket and Mystique...they keep me smiling and continue to bring lots of laughs and joy into our home..they will meet and greet you at the door...and then will entertain you...you too would have to love them!!

advantage flea medicine helps them, too. my one cat had a reaction, though!
my one kitty has to go to the vet tomorrow, sigh. he must have a bladder infection. poor guy is straining and straining but nothing is coming out. it's so sad when the cats get sick; they don't understand why they are in pain or are feeling ucky, and it's not like you can explain it to them. okay, i'm getting tearful, i must go pet him now. poor guy.
Bet your vet will put your cat on CD food.

How long has your cat been suffering? Couldn't your vet take him in sooner? My cat's vet will always see my cat immediately if he's ill. They don't make him wait for an appointment. If there's a problem, they want to see him yesterday.
he just got sick last night. he has an appointment this afternoon. poor baby, but now he seems his usual self. he's still going to the vet, though, can't take any chances with these guys. BTW, he's been on a special food before because of a UTI, so they may well put him on it again. he did tinkle this morning, so hopefully he's doing better.
about the post with cats laying on you, oh, mine kind of take turns. this month, several of them have been alternating. my one kitty (the sick one )
lays right on my pillow. and my very old cat lays right on or next to me all of the time. my other kitty lays right on me, too.
but the one is so crabby. she usually comes and 'accepts' some pettins, but gets angry because i THINK or something like that and she leaves the room.
gotta go get the cat carrier. oh, is he gonna be mad when he sees that carrier...
sorry about your kitty. It's hard when your pets are sick cause they are so dependent on you. I somehow feel that my kittie's allergies are my fault. ya know.

so he's loopy and will probably pee all over the place like he did when they had him on valium before cause it makes him so out of it, but that's okay, as long as he's all right.
:D :D :D
thanks for asking!
i went and checked; it's c/d, oops. the antibiotic is clavimox. ugghhhh, they hate when they need to take medicine. he's one of the sweetest, most lovable and gentle cats you could know, but when it comes to trying to give him medication, he's a fighter!
Sox has been on Clavimox and some other kind of antibiotic.. but usually the only thing that helps himi is a steriod shot.
I am going to ask about prednesone (sp?) next time we go to the VET

thanks for the kind words!.
so, to update, my kitty is off of the clavimox now, we just finished giving it to him, and is his old happy self. :D
and about the putting pills in cheese, chef suz, i appreciate the advice. but my cats usually just gnaw off the cheese and spit out the pill, lol. we gave up on that one. ham might work, though! we'll have to try that one out.
and georgeart, about the guilt-when-kitty-gets-sick thing, i know what you mean. it makes you so sad that you can't help them understand WHY they're sick and all.

i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink
& rock on, PITTSBURGH-
