Pilling A Cat
Juliescooter asked how Mom got Me to take my pills. We would have taken photos, but Mom has to give Me my pills all by herself. Since she only has two hands, and has to use them both to do this, she found Your Pet's Best Friend Blog which shows the same method Dr. C showed her. If you click here, it will take you to "How to Give a Cat a Pill." It tells how to do it with pictures and tips for uncooperative Cats. Mom uses the pill-pusher, pictured last. You can click on any of those photos to biggify.
Storm visited my blog when I first got diagnosed with lymphoma and gave us some good places to go on the internet for information. Storm is currently in remission from lymphoma and is a very good encourager. The two helpful links she gave us were -
The Feline Lymphoma Caregivers Guide
The Yahoo Feline Lymphoma Discussion Group
Petey is another blogging Cat who is in remission from lymphoma. Miss Peach too. Others in the blogosphere have struggled with chemotherapy too, and have gone on to the Rainbow bridge, like Buzzerbee. There may be more, but I don't know who they are at the moment. We just don't get to make the rounds like we used to.
Wednesday I have to go back to the V-E-T for bloodwork. I don't know how they make blood work, but however they do it I suspect I won't like it. Mom says Dr. C will be happy that I'm feeling so well. In fact I woke Mom up at 6:20 this morning to announce that the food in my bowl was getting low, chased Catzee all over the place, took my pill, and got extra treats. No pictures though. For now, it's time to say good night and get ready for my midnight Cat nap.
