Jack's feeling better...but really grumpy

Well, this is just great. I'm eating kibbles again. I'm drinking. I'm peeing. I'm PLAYING! Right in FRONT of her! I'm feeling better, and she STILL took me to the V-E-T!

They stole my bloods. They stole my pees. They stuck things WHERE THEY DON'T BELONG!

And then they gave me a bad furcut!

Now I'm going to look all dorky in my Christmas photos, while I open all the presents my OTW had BETTER BE GIVING ME!!!!

I mean, LOOK at this!!!!

Maybe I can hide it by wearing this lei.

In good news...I'm feeling better! Wow, catblogosphere purrs work FAST! A few hours after Persephone posted asking for purrs I got up and ate some more gooshy foods, and then some kibbles, then hopped up on the desk for some lovins, and then I saw Scissors and decided to invite him to play, and we played Whack-A-Rat under the footstool for a while. And later I peed.

And this morning when my OTW got up I hopped up on the counter while she combed her headfurs, and demanded she do me next, and after her shower, I drank water from the bathtub edge.

And then she scooped me up and shoved me in a PTU and took me out in the COLD anyway! Seriously! It was FREEZING OUT THERE, WOMAN!!!! The car said it was -24!!! (that's -11 to you Americats). I nearly froze my tail off in the squillion miles walk to the car!

And what did Dr Tara say? That I'm FINE! She can't find anything wrong with me physically. That's what I said to my OTW! And I didn't need to steal my bloods and my pees and stick things WHERE THEY DON'T BELONG, and give myself a bad furcut, to say it!

My OTW and Dr Tara think maybe it was just the infection after all, and I was just feeling a little under the weather as it cleared up, since she didn't find any evidence of a full bladder or blockage or fever or anything.

Dr Tara sent my bloods and pees away to a lab, who I guess will sniff it over, though what a D-O-G would know about it, I don't know. But it'll be sniffing it until Saturday, when Dr Tara will call and let my OTW know what it found.

I'm going to hide here under the chair.

Don't look at me, OTW. And stop taking my picture, I look stupid.

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Maybe someone could photo shop the "bad fur cut". How rude of the OTW to take you to the v.e.t. and how rude of the v.e.t to steal your blood and pees! I'd put the bitey on something, if I were you!

Tommy and I have sure missed visiting our blogging friends during our mom's computer incompetence problem.

Shilgiah the Cat said...

Hi again,
I just realized that in one of your pictures you have a book called "Pussyfoot". Is that a good read and is it about quiet cats or what?

Everycat said...

Jack we are thrilled to bits that your bloods are normal and all is well with you! That's a great Christmas present!

Happy Christmas to you all!

This is Abby. Batman may stay at your house for a furry long time. He has been hissing at me and I have had enough of it.

Hey, Abby, you have been chasing me too. I need a vacation!!!

Well, at least tomorrow we are going on a car ride and I don't have to look at you all day.
