Mancat Monday: Tis Brrrrrrr Humbug Season


Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it! Dang, it sure has been cold down here in the South and I sure hope that isn’t a preview of things to come.  Oh, we’re nice and warm in the house, but we always worry about our ferals.  They always seem okay when them come running for breakfast, but we still worry about them out there in the cold.

Hey, several of you have been asking about how Sister Sascha and I are doing, and thanks for that.  I’m doing just fine so far.  I’ve been feeling great and we’re just hoping I won’t have another relapse.  Sister Sascha, on the other paw, is still not well.  Sister Sascha has a severe case of sinus drainage that has been causing her to cough and sneeze like crazy. The peeps have been trying to give her antihistamine meds but, true to her spirit, Sister Sascha has been most uncooperative.  I am so easy to give pills to, but Sister Sascha wins the prize for being my most feisty sister…paws down, she wins.  But the peeps shall keep trying, no matter what she says.

So, that’s a wrap from here.  I hope y’all manage to keep plenty snuggly warm. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Oh oh, poor Sascha. We have some of the sinus sneezies here too. My vet said she thought since there was no sign of other symptoms, Toby might have a small intranasal polyp that was causing sort of permanent irritation. We did a couple of short courses of antihistamines (of course he’s the only one in the house that doesn’t scarf down Pill Pockets) which didn’t seem to make a great amount of difference, so if you guys come up with anything else please post all about it!

Yuck to the allergies and the pill, to neither of us is that a thrill. Hopefully she’ll be on the mend soon, glad you are and lets hope it will finally stick.

I think also about cats and dogs without home when it is cold outside. That’s so sad. I hope Sasha feels better soon and you will have a wonderful Thanksgiving together.

Brrrr humbug is right. It is just too, too cold. It was 21 degrees the last two mornings and that biggie storm is coming our way. We hate it and so does our mom. She gets so grumpy. Brian, since you are feeling better, Mauricio says that you should stop by the Campfire at Cat Scouts and warm up. We are really sorry for Sascha. Tell the humans to get some of the Greenies pill pockets. That’s what worked with Lisbeth. And we’ll keep her in our prayers. Purrs and hugs, Mauricio, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth… Read more »

Brian I am so happy you are doing well. I do hope Sister Sascha gets better soon. My Tubby not very cooperative with pills either. He has teeth and claws and knows how to use them.

Glad u are better. SIster Sasha must have watched that “how to give a cat a pill cartoon”…LOL

Glad you’re cozy & warm. I’m warm inside too even though it’s getting cold here. We also worry about our neighborhood kitty Squatty out in the cold at night. It will get below freezing here in the winter and we’re still thinking about making him a little shelter. Whether or not he uses it is up to him.

Hope Sister Sascha gets well soon. Sneezing slobberies is no fun!

BRIAN! So good to hear you are doing so well! Keeping paws crossed for you though!

The Human worries that I will be like Sister Sascha or worse if she ever has to give me pills. Sigh. I am NOT a Good Boy like you.

Julia Williams

Brian, I am so happy to hear that you are feeling better but so sorry to hear that sister Sascha has some health troubles. I will send her lots and lots of healing purrs and I just know they will help. I wish she would cooperate with the pills but we know it’s hard to understand that the peeps are just trying to help.

Please tell your Dad how thankful I am for his friendship.

Oh your poor mum & dad! Pilling a cat who is resistant is a blood curdling experience and the kitties no like it either! MOL! We are more than pleased to hear you are doing better! Let’s hope Sister S gets better soon.

Ditto on the too cold, too early. It was minus 20 Celsius with our windchill early on Sunday AM and we, too, thought about all the ferals and roaming kitties in our city.

But hey, we’re all one day closer to Spring, right? 🙂

Paws crossed for Sister Sascha (and you), that she’s back to 100% very soon and that you don’t have any more relapses.

Texas, a cat in... Austin

I hope Sister Sascha will let your humans give her her pills so that she can get better. We’re sending purrs for her!

It’s been very cold in the state named after me too. Okay, less cold than in NY but still…

Sister Sascha you must be good and take your pills. I am glad you are doing well Brian.

The wind has been blowing cold here. Banjo and I have been trying to keep warm.
Keep well kitties!
