Mancat Monday: Catching Up on the Goings On



Brian's Home.  Adopt cats, we deserve it!

Hey, first let me say that we won’t be around commenting too much until probably Thursday.  Don’t worry though, nothing is wrong, Dad has something going on, so busy is the word for this week.

First up, I haven’t been overly good.  Well, I’m usually good, but I am having a wee bit of a wee-wee problem.  Stress usually makes by cystitis kick up and when Sister Zoe was gone I got a bit stressed.  Then she came home from the hospital and I couldn’t go in the bedroom to visit, so more stress.  I’ve had some meds and my fluids so hopefully it will resolve on its own soon.

Secondly, you probably saw the update on Zoe yesterday.  She is eating a wee bit on her own and we’re very hopeful that will pick up once she starts feeling better.  She will go to get her stitches out late this week on Friday.  She is a pretty good car rider unlike yours truly.

Last, but not least, we sure do appreciate all the warm and wonderful thoughts you’ve sent our way during this difficult time.  We love all y’all too!

Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!!  More Forever Homes More Often!  Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Brian, we sure send you some mighty purrs that you feel better really soon.And same for Zoe. We just know she is going to start eating really soon. Bet it feels good to her to have that baseball out of her tummy.

Hope that Dad gets his busy over soon.

Brian you are such a saucepot with your paws crossed and that smile.
Me and the ape are sorry that you are unwell and I am sending big, slow wave rumbly purrs to relax you. Very glad that Sister Zoe got through surgery ok and is now on the mend. Did your Dad get to see that giant Bezoar? Poor little girl carting that around in her tum. Better out than in. Big purrs to Zoe too and we hope you both feel much better soon

Hope you are both in purrfect health soon. Do you take any meds for cystitis? I have heard prozac can help that, maybe it would be good for you to take in stressful times.

Brian once you can see Zoe I bet you’ll feel LOTS better and I daresay she will too!!! I know you’re all glad that she’s home…… for recovery and with the help of ALL of you, we’re thinking she’ll be eating better and certainly feeling better super soon!

Sending lots of purrrrrrs……..

Brian, you look quite smug in your photo as if you had a secret. It is quite an adorable photo. Thanks for dropping by the Mice Bucket Challenge. If you want to guess the number of mice, you can earn a second opportunity to win green papers for a shelter or rescue. Continued purrs and prayers for Zoe.

Of course you are stressed Brian – I bet everyone in da home is stressed! Yikes – too much going on. Praying for a calm, peaceful time for you all – bye bye busy,… Read more »

I’m still purring for Zoe to get all better. I hope you start to perk up too pal. I know we kitties sometimes worry about our siblings or humans around us. Tell Dad not to worry about visiting. We certainly understand cuz M hasn’t been very good about helping me visit either. Sometimes life is just like that for the humans.

Whoa! Healing purrz to y’all and you of you. Maybe you could take something for stress and then you wouldn’t get pee problems. Of course nothing is that easy I know.

You all have had more than your fair share of issues lately. 3 out of the 5 of us have been sick this past week, but paws crossed, we all seem to finally be fine again. Health issues are never fun.

Paws crossed that you two continue to get better! Mommy says that pain meds really blunted Felix and Bibby’s appetites, so it might take a day or two for Zoe to truly feel hungry.

Brian, we hope your pee issue resolves itself and you feel better soon. We know how change can throw you off your game, so to speak. And we hope Zoe starts eating more, too.

Oh no Brian!! We are hoping that you are ok! Now we are worried about you (but we love that photo)…..praying that maybe it was just the stress of Zoe being gone?
Mom has been busy driving Dad all over (he had to get new glasses, his broke in the accident), and more………..he can’t drive her car cause it is a stick and he can’t drive that, so Mom isn’t around much right now either. We are doing our best!
Praying that all of you will be on the mend soon! xoxo

We’re glad Zoe is doing a bit better, and we hope all goes well with getting her stitcheds removed. And we hope she starts eating a bit more, too.

Get better, Brian. We’re purring and praying that your Cystitis clears up, pal.

Sending you our best purrs, Brian. You’ve had a lot of stress, so no wonder you are acting out a little! Hope everykitty is in tip-top form before long — and many kissies to Sister Zoe. XOXOXO

We’re so glad that Zoe is home again and that she did start to eat something on her own, huge purrs and prayers to her for a full recovery with ease and for a good appetite and many purrs and prayers to you, dear Brian, please feel better ASAP!

Hope Zoe is eating today and feeling better. Brian, try to relax, handsome! I turned over Cats of the CB calendar page and there was pretty Precious enjoying a little easy in her bed.
