Misty's First Day Home


Hello everyone. I'm living in the bathroom now. Mom put my bed and some food & water and a litterbox in here for me. I'm really, really tired and can't stand up good.

I'm very skinny now and Mom wants me to eat, but I don't feel like it. She wants me to drink, too, and I don't want to so she gives me water in a plastic thing in my mouth. I have to take lots of icky medicine that I don't like. It tastes terrible, but Mom says it will help me feel better.

Everyone is hissing at me. Well not everyone, just George, Tipper & Max. They said I smell weird. Mom, do I smell weird?


You smell like the hospital, sweetie. But don't worry about it. After a few days, that smell will go away and you'll smell like our house again.


(sigh) Is that where I was, in the hospital?


Yes. Dr. Olsen at Care Animal Clinic saved your life and Dr. Jacobs at Wisconsin Veterinary Referral Center fixed your insides. If it wasn't for them, you'd be at The Bridge now. After you're well, we'll send them a thank you note, OK?


OK, but not right now. I need to rest.

That looks like a very comfy bed to chillax and heal in Misty. Rest is the best medicine besides eating and taking your yucky medicines. Each day you will get better and better.

Hugs and purrs from Chi Town!

Lots and lots of rest for you, little one. You're getting stronger every day and you'll be back to your old self in no time.

Oh Misty, please eat. It's very important to do that to get better again even though you don't feel like it.

Dear sweet Misty,
Each will start to get better...we promise! But, you must eat, little one. Everything is going to be fine.

Very truly yours,

Please eat Misty, you need to eat to get better! Try baby food if you don't feel like anything else.

There, there sweet Misty, you rest up now. Don't worry about anything, just listen to your Mom and all will be well again.

Rest, sweet Misty, just rest and don't you worry. Try to take the medicine and you will be okay in no time. Ignore the boys, they are "nose-driven" and don't know what they're hissing about! Get well soon, sweety.

Rest now & get strong, Misty. But you have to eat. That helps you get strong. Purrrrrrrrs

I feel like teleporting over to Dr. Olsen and Dr. Jacobs and give them a big ol' smooch!
Take good care sweetie - we are praying for you!

I'm glad you are back home and not over the bridge. I think everyone will stop hissing at you soon enough. They were probably just scared and confused, that's all. Get some rest and heal up good.

We're with Parker. We want to give those Vets great big kitty kisses and purrs of gratitude! We're so glad you are home and healing up, Misty!

At December 02, 2008 10:22 AM, Blogger ML said...

If you want to give out an address, maybe via email, we could send those wonderful vets a thank you note and/or a holiday card for saving sweet Misty's life.

I think after all of that it is normal that you want to snooze so much. All those meds may be making your little tummy feel funky--and it's got enough reason to feel funky little one.

Misty, I am so happy to see you at home and on the mend. Take plenty of time to rest and I hope you will start eating good soon. I am going to keep purring for you until you are all the way recovered and back to your regular self!

Oh Misty you just rest and heal up nicely! We are so happy that those great vets helped you! Even if they poked and prodded at you.

Time to relax an get better! You needs to eat an drink fur yur Mom, plus then you won't taste the yucky medicines so much. We's so glad yur home an on the mend!

Try to eat something and make your mom happy, okay? And don't worry - we sniffed your blog real good and we don't smell anything strange. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

We know the living in the bathroom is not fun and neither is getting hissed at, but hang in there, Misty! You need to eat and drink so you will gain back your strength, ok! We are still purring for you!!!

Misty, you've been through so much, so of course you're tired. Get all the rest you want. I do hope soon your appetite will return. All of us are still purring for you.

Poor kidlet. I'm sorry everybody's going all troll on you. We do the same thing to everyone in our house too, so I don't think it's especially personal. Plus, I know your mom isn't doing that. Moms always take care of us no matter what we smell like. Rest well, Misty!

Misty we are glad that you're home now. Please try and eat something, it will make you stronger and feel better.

Sending gentle healing purrs to you sweet girl.

Misty, it takes an awful lot of energy for your little body to heal, so you need to get all the rest you can. Food and water are good for making energy, so please try to nibble and sip a bit. The most important thing is to take your medicine and rest. The hospital can be a good place (sometimes) and that smell will go away. It's definitely better than The Bridge.

Misty, I'm sending purrs and nuzzles to you for a quick recovery! *sniff* I don't smell anything strange!

Medicines are icky, but they will help you heal up good. I'm sorry you're getting hissed at. Tazo hissed at me for a couple of days when I first got home. You'll get rid of the hospital stink soon, especially once you feel like grooming again. But be careful of those stitches!!! Don't chew them or you'll have to get a cone head. And don't let anybody else chew them either. :) Hang in there. We're still purring and purraying for you.

Ask someone to bring you a donut. I bet that would appeal to you.

I remember when I was sick and didn't want to eat. Well, I *wanted* to but it was like I couldn't remember how to get started. I think the Woman opened a can of chicken to make chicken salad and I wanted some of that so she gave me some. And tuna water. Those things made me finally start eating again.

And now I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. I wonder if we have any more donuts...?

At December 02, 2008 6:33 PM, Blogger Derby said...

Misty you do look all spent in your pictures. You need to rest, but also eat a little. I know you don't want to eat lots cuz your tummy hurts, but you do need to eat and drink.

Snuggles and purrs to you.

Sweet Misty make sure you get lots of rest and eat. An empty tummy probably makes the medicines make yout tummy more upset. I liked Max's and Luxie's idea tuna water or Feast soup?

Oh Misty we are so glad you are so cozy in your cat bed!! Please eat and drink so you can heal up real fast!!! We will keep purrring and purraying until you are 100%!! (((((hugs from our house to yours!!!)))

That is how you well get yourself feeling better.. even being a kitteh I do not understand why our defense mechanism to get ourselves better is to starve ourselves :(

I am so glad to see you home Misty. Try to eat a little bit to get strong again. It's very scary what a little bit of thread can do. After the scare MB had with Livvie, she keeps all thread hidden away from us now.

Get well soon. Purrs, Sukie x

Just popping in to check on you, Misty. Hope you've had some snacks and some water and lots of good naps. Do you have to eat super small meals of special, bland kibble all through the day? I didn't mind that because I got to eat every three hours. The Mom didn't like it so much because she hadded to get up during the night. heh heh Hope your tummy is starting to feel better. Hang in there!

Has your vet suggested Pepcid AD? 10mg.. cut into 4ths. 1/4 tab before meals.

ASK THEM first before trying... Dehydration sours their stomach... Pepcid helped calm my cat's stomach.

Also... you might want to ask you vet to show you how to give her fluids at home. It's really easy and less stressful for the cat.


I hope she feels better soon.
