Weekend Cat Blogging #389 HERE!!!


Last week I posted about Smudge being diagnosed with FIV.  He was actually doing a lot better before we took him to the vet.


Vet visits are always stressful and at this one, they took blood and then gave him a shot for possible infections.


Before we took him to the vet, he was pretty much acting normal, except that instead of interacting in the evening while we were watching tv, he would go sleep behind the bathroom door, where the heating vent is. But he was still eating and going outside, like normal.


But after getting back from the vet, he is not eating as much (though he likes to be handfed rotisserie chicken!), sleeps all the time, doesn’t show much interest in going outside. 

Usually after getting back from a vet visit he is traumatized for the rest of the day, exhausted from the ordeal.  I’m hoping that the FIV is just making this bounceback take a little longer, and that he’ll perk up some soon.

    Hugs to Smudge. I hope he bounces back quickly, too. Give him some love and extra chicken from his internet friends, Muffin & me.

    Oh Pam. Hang in there. Could be Smudge is fighting off infection the same way people are supposed to – lots of bed rest and warmth and good grub. Hang in there! Sending hugs and good wishes your way.

    Sweet Smudge… Hold out for the chicken and rest in the love of your family and WCB friends.

    We are featuring our kitty cousin, Eddy Mildew, this weekend.

    Happy Thanksgiving Week! Thanks for hosting.

    He needs more chicken. And probably more time to recover from the trauma of his sister Coco disappearing for a week. Smudge is certainly beautiful.

    Smudge may not want to go outside now that it is colder out. Sounds like he is trying to stay warm. You might experiment with a heating pad turned on low and wrapped with a towel.
