Explosive Cats

Scott and I walked into the house today to 2 cats that'd detonated like a pair of wet adobe hand grenades.

Wet adobe that you have to soak with club soda first to get it up out of the carpet and then carpet shampoo to clean the rest of it out. Think dried brown asphalt. At the last place we lived, we had a carpet cleaning machine we used so much we killed the thing. Because you see when it isn't coming out one end, it comes out the other. Scott says he used to think cats were neat elegant things that were more like self-propelled china than actual animals. Now he knows they're all just an infection away from hiccuping once, giving you a cross-eyed look, and then blasting partially digested cat food in all directions.

Now Teddy is sick. I was wondering why he hasn't been wanting his pills for the past 2 days. I had to sit on him and shove them down his throat. Now I know he's sick too. He has the dreaded poopie tail syndrome just like Ajax.

2 cats with diarrhea that LOOK like they don't feel well. 2 cats with heart disease and diarrhea that obviously are a bit dehydrated and I can't give too much subcutaneous fluids to in case it overloads their hearts.

BOTH are going back to work tomorrow for more diagnostics, meds, and some fluid therapy.

Keep your fingers crossed for my cats!

It's so late, but I had to check on Ajax kitty.
Now you've got two down.
I'm saying a little prayer for them as I get ready to sleep.

I hope Teddy Bear and Ajax kitty get better and keep it from the others as much as possible.
(but you know, Maggie is just too bitchy to get it).

Hang in there E. The "boys" will be better soon, I just know it. I am sending hugs and positive thoughts to you and my grandkitties.

It's bad enough when 1 is sick - but too is downright terrible! Have our fingers and claws crossed for your guys.
