Mancat Monday: The Medicine Man Is On the Prowl

mancat monday brian 08022021

Howdy gang, I hope all y’all are doing okay. I’m still doing about the same, maybe a little better, not worse though, so I suppose that’s a good thing. Nope, I’m still not eating enough on my own and yep, the Dad is still supplementing my calories by hand feeding me. I’m very cooperative, once he catches me.

That’s what I’m doing up here in the sky lounge, trying to avoid the medicine man. I’m a smart one, I can tell time and I know that I get some of my medicine just prior to feeding time. I’m peeking down and I know he’s coming. Maybe he won’t look up here. Nah, he’ll find me, he always does. That’s okay, I know he’s doing this because he loves me.

It’s August already and believe it or not we’re supposed to have some cooler temps here. Cooler means we’re going from stupid hot to just plain hot, but hey, we’ll take it. I bet our air conditioners would love to take an hour or two off. Okay, that’s it for me today, I’ll see y’all on Thankful Thursday. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Your dad’s a nice medicine man. Hope what he gives you doesn’t taste too bad, my
friend. – Tom x

So sorry, Brian…not eating enough is never a good thing for cats…my Coco has a vet appointment today too 🙁 He doesn’t eat much either and sleeps 24/7…something is really off. I hope you feel better soon, Brian.

I hope your medicine isn’t too yucky-tasting! Ducky’s medicine for her hip dysplasia pain supposedly has a honey flavor to it. It can’t be too bad cuz she doesn’t refuse to take it. You need to start eating more, Brian, so you can keep up your strength.

looks to me like you are hiding in plain sight. your dad is a great dad, to chase you down and hand feed you meds and food. try hard to make it easy for him to catch you. we need you to feel better and better and get back to eating from your bowl

Awww Brian, your Dad just wants to help you…….sending much love to all of you and I sure wish you would eat better on your own! xoxo

Hurray for cooler temperatures! I’m all for that. This morning I spent several minutes trying to catch Jezebel for some eye medication. At least it was just the one eye gunky this time – much easier than putting ointment in both eyes and drops in both ears. Whew!

Sometimes it’s best to stop avoidin’ the medicine man, my friend, and just let him help you feel better. I know it’s a hard thing to do. I know the medicine and stuff is usually icky. But if it makes you feel better… PURRS

We all duck the old fellow when he has something we don’t like. Luckily we do like pill pockets or Dad would be out of luck

Glad to hear you at least eat if you are hand fed. Hope you will get a diagnosis soon to get you back to normal.

What a blessing your medicine man cares enough to do this. Go ahead and give him a break, let yourself be caught once in so often without trying to hide, it will encourage him.

Good to hear your slightly better but you must let dad feed you or you will take ages to get much better so behave Brian lol

Have a bettertastic day 👍

Brian, I hope you will find your appetite soon. It usually bothers the humans when we
do not want to eat.
I will send you extra purrs in the hope they help you feel like eating.

Brian, Sawyer totally knows how to tell time as well. He knows exactly when it is time for treats, lunch, dinner and snack and shows up promptly (if not early). Thankfully he as been a champ about eating since getting home, so for a change he is getting all his meds. You continue to be good about taking yours. You are absolutely right. Your dad loves you and that is why he gives them to you. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

You can’t hide from the Medicine Man. You can only elude him for so long until he catches you. You may as well just cat up and get it over with, then you can go about enjoying what you were doing without fear of being caught. Who am I kidding, that’s not going to happen, right? lol I’m glad you’re doing some better, though. Take care, little furriend!

Memories of Eric and Flynn

Your dad is trying to help you, Brian. I hope you soon start to feel better.
