A Little Better


Kitty’s feeling a little better this evening. She’s had some catfood and drank some milk, the first time she’s drank anything on her own in almost 2 days. We’ve had to feed her water with an eyedropper to keep her hydrated as she wouldn’t drink anything on her own.  She’s more bright-eyed than she has been and more aware of what’s going on around her.

I just checked on her and found her eating more catfood. Yay!  She still has a fever and I won’t breathe a sigh of relief until her fever breaks, but I do think she’s on the mend. Her meow is kinda raspy and pitiful, and she sounds clogged in her nose, so we’re thinking respiratory infection. Poor Kitty. Glad we got the antibiotics for her when we did.

Kitty says to tell you “Thank You for all your kind wishes, thoughts, and prayers”.


She says “you’re all a bunch of really nice, thoughtful humans”.

(And that’s saying a lot considering how much disdain Kitty has for the human race.)



Cattle, corn, wheat, beans, mud, snow, ice, and drought. Plenty of fresh air and quiet. Our life is sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes joyous, but never boring.

    I’m so glad she is feeling better. Tell her that I hope she has a full recovery even if I am just a human.

  5. So glad to hear Kitty seems to be better, but she still doesn’t look like her usual, vivacious self. Those eyes say it all.

    I’m so glad to hear she is on the mend. I didn’t know you were giving here water in an eye dropper. Guess I missed that post.
    Her eyes look better. Upper Respiratory sounds like what she has. Poor little girl..
    Hugs coming from Lexington. Stay indoors Kitty where it is cooler….

    I’m so sorry to know that Miss Kitty is feeling puny! (I’ve been away from the ‘puter for two days!) It’s encouraging to know that she’s showing signs of improvement. Wouldn’t it be nice if our sweet fur-babies could say something like, “Mom, my tummy hurts!” or whatever, when they don’t feel well? Hoping she’ll be even better by this evening!

    Awwwww. What a picture. Poor poor baby. Glad she is better. As long as it’s going in and coming out it’s a waiting game now. But that face….she looks like she is on her sick bed on the back of that chair. She is so sweet, best wishes.
