Many Visits To The Vet

This past month has been tough. I stopped eating on my own totally for a while and had to be syringe fed and giving fluids. Recently, I started eating again a little but still have to be fed liquid food with a syringe and given subcutaneous fluids every day.

At one of my many vet visits I caught a really horrible cold/upper respiratory infection and had to go on antibiotics. It was very contagious so it wasn't long before Cadence came down with it too. He was pretty pitiful and making all kinds of funny noises. We both had to go to the vet and get shots and medicine. I think we have gotten over the worst of it. I don't have a fever anymore but I still have some congestion.

After not eating on my own for two weeks I suddenly decided to start eating, but only good stuff like tuna and chicken and a little of the Fancy Feast cat food we use to eat before I got cancer. The kind full of by products and wheat gluten.

My humans don't know what to expect from me. One day they think I'm a goner and the next I'm eating on my own and moving (slowly) around the house. Somebody has to keep order around here. I have work to do. Litter boxes and food situations to be monitored. It's tough being alpha cat!
