Funny there Patricia.
My sister came by to help me. She had the idea to roll up Squeaky n a towel to restrain her. Well, when she tried, Squeaky wiggled out and when my sister tried to catch her she bit her. She also let out an ear-piercing shriek like you've never heard.
I finally got ahold of Squeaky, immobilized her in my lap between my legs and my sister got the dose in a bit at a time. One mistake I think I made was trying to get it in all at once.
Tomorrow, I'm back on my own. Wish me luck. I'll be out of town for a while and I have a woman who is a cat foster mother who has agreed to give Squeaky her meds. She says she has done it many times. She'll complete the dosage. Fingers crossed.
I am sorry to hear about Squeaky, I hope she gets well soon, well cats can pick up viruses and bacteria just like people, such as being at the wrong place at the wrong time. No you not failure, you took her to the vet and get some treatment, and attempted to treat her as well, even though it was messy. I hope your cat gets well soon.
Squeaky got sick last weekend. Sneezing and what looked like conjuctivitis (redeye) in her left eye. Took her to the vet and he diagnosed a combination of herpes for the upper respiratory symptom and chlamydia for the eye problem. He gave her a FVRCP shot for the herpes and prescribed 10 days of doxycycline in liquid form.
I have not had a lot of success administering the doxycycline. The vet's nurse did it and it looked so simple. When I do it, it turns into a tussle. Three attempts today and on the third attempt I managed to get it into her and she ran away under my bed. I found her foaming at the mouth, just like a rabid animal. I'm sure she ejected almost all the syrup. I think I may have gagged her by sticking the syringe too far back.
Anyway, I feel like a failure as a cat parent and I hate the fact that now she looks at me with suspicion when I approach her. To make matters worse, I injured my toe and I'm going to Las Vegas to visit my daughter and her family in the next few days, so I had to hire someone
But then she just crawled up and curled up in my lap. I guess cats have short memories.
Very cute kitty.
Yes it would :-)
That would have been good.
O.k , well a pity you to for to cat sit my kitty. you could have raided the fridge tehehe as well look at my paintings.
A dog named Gibbs? My best mate is a rabid NCIS fan, and of Gibbs in particular. I shall have to tell her about your dogs name as she is thinking of getting a puppy. Excellent! *laughs*
I cat-sit for people regularly. It makes a good holiday. Everyone trusts me with their cat, because I'm a ... cat person. I live a long way from Sunderland though.
