Two Sick Cats

Bad Cat ChrisChris has been sick for almost a week now. By that I mean he has been sneezing a lot. Other than that he seems fine, which is why I thought he was having an allergic reaction to something that is in season now. I no longer think that because Puck started sneezing yesterday and, as far as I know, allergies are not contagious.

It seems Puck may be more affected by this cold (if that is what it is) than Chris is. This morning he got on the bed before I was quite finished making it and lied down where I needed to put the last pillow. I decided to leave him there and let him rest, which he did until we were almost ready to leave for work. That is when Chris jumped on the bed and started bothering him.

“Chris,” Rose scolded, “Leave Puck alone. He doesn’t feel good.” I had to remind her that Chris was sick too but she pointed out that Chris was tougher than the average cat and I couldn’t argue about that. Hopefully they will both get over this soon. I will have to keep a close eye on them and make sure they don’t get worse.

    We’ve had some sneezing again at our house, but Mom thinks it is this crummy litter that is sending clouds of dust throughout the house. We’ve been using this lightweight Tidy Cats, and the humans hate it ’cause it goes everywhere. We’re going back to the Tidy Cats with Glade. We like it and so do the pawrents. Get well soon, kitties. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

      I buy Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat Clumping Cat Litter. It is a bit expensive but it has less dust than any litter I have tried, including tidy cats. I also get the unscented litter which is better for cats because the perfume is really meant for humans.

    Hi, Chuck: Well, my Angie (the bobtail) has been sick for a week – sneezing LOTS, etc. so she was on a liquid antibiotic and has improved greatly. Got some overdue bloodwork, too, so that trip was $200+ šŸ˜¦ Her pancreas are out of whack and she is SO thin – was 4.75, 6 wks. later 4.38 – vet says she could go downhill rather fast. I hope Puck & ‘adorable’ Chris are doing better – get them in the SUN ! šŸ™‚

    I hope mew mancats get better soon, it is no fun when mew don’t feel well. I have an autoimmune disorder that makes my body weaker and more susceptible to sickies so my Mom has to watch me close. She suggests if mew want to help boost mewz immune system even when not sick, L-Lysine kitty supplement and Salmon Omega Fish Oil added to food help do this and she gives me and my brother both with her thinking neither of us realizes it. We humor her by pretending not to as not to lower her human self esteem, they are so fragile compared to we kitties. We love ‘Grizzly Salmon Oil All-Natural-Supplement for Cats’
    While mew are sick and if not wanting to eat well, try Viyo Recuperation for Cats- it enhances appetite and is full of vitamins and nutrients like Ensure for Kitties.
    I send mew both purrs of healing and feeling better so mew can get back to supervising mewz humans proper.

      That is great advice. I will look into that. I have been trying to do things to keep the cats healthy. I’ve switched to a grain free dry food and have been trying to eliminate the dry food altogether and give them a raw food diet but Chris, Puck and my wife all resist it.
