Mancat Monday with Another Lita Update

Carmine hangs out in Lita's heated bed with one of his front legs outstretched.
Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!  

Did yous all forget about mes?  Litas has been hogging my our blog lately!  

Lita is still fighting hers battle with pneumonia.  Hers has been more lively the past few days.  Last week, hers just laid in one spot alllll day, but now hers is wandering around here and there, and hers is not hiding anymores!

Thankful Thursday with an Update from Lita

Lita comforts herself by laying on my jacket.
Hi everyone, it's Lita here with another update about me.

It has been an awful couple of days.  The amoxicillin the Mom was giving me made me feel very, very sick to my tummy.  I did not eat anything for almost two whole days, so the Mom had to get D to help her syringe-feed me a little a/d.  

I hid under the bed for two days!  

I have spent most of the night on the Mom's bed tonight.  I even ate just a tiny bit of chicken baby food earlier, but I am refusing to eat again now.

Milita's Monday

Lita hangs out on my bed, resting so she can get well.
Hi everyone, it's Lita today.

I know the Mom told you about how sick I've been lately last week.  I still feel crummy, but I wanted to come and say thank you for all the purrs, prayers, love, and hugs you all have sent me.  We really appreciate all of you so much!

I have been taking this nasty-tasting pink stuff called Amoxicillin since last Thursday.  If my fur looks disheveled, it's because I spit some of my medicine out on my fur, and then I like to shake my head and get some of it all over me when the humans quit fussing over me at meds time.  

Despite my best efforts, though, I am getting plenty of the gross medicine.

My Very Good, Very Bad Cat Book Review: #ChewyInfluencer

Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat book cover
I have always loved the Chicken Soup for the Soul books - I've been reading them for 20+ years (now I feel old!).  I love all the inspirational stories these books compile together; they just make you feel good!  So, I was thrilled when I received the opportunity to review Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat: 101 Inspiring Stories About Our Happy, Heroic, & Hilarious Pets

All of us cat lovers know that every kitty is unique.  Some enjoy getting into mischief, some make good therapy cats, and some provide us with endless hours of entertainment.  No matter the personality traits a cat has, though, they are all amazing. 

Every cat lover I've ever known has countless stories of their furry companions.  I love not only sharing my own stories about Carmine and Lita's antics, but I love hearing others' stories as well. 

This book is full of great cat stories.  I could relate to so many of the stories in this book.  I love how the book contains stories about different types of cats - humorous cats, naughty cats, therapy cats, heroic cats, and more.  I enjoyed each and every story.

Each story is only a few pages long.  I find this the perfect length because it easily allows me to read a few stories before I went to sleep at night or on the bus on the way to church. 

I would highly recommend Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat to any cat lover. 

You can purchase a copy of Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat at Chewy.com.

FTC Disclosure: I received a copy of, "Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Very Good, Very Bad Cat," for a fair and honest review as part of Chewy.com's Blogger Outreach Program.  Receiving the book did not influence my opinions in any way.  All opinions expressed on Fur Everywhere are my own.

Purrs and Prayers Needed for Lita

Purrs and prayers badge for Lita.
Hi everyone, it's the Mom today.

Some of you have been seeing our updates about Lita on Facebook.  I've been holding off on officially asking for purrs and prayers for her because I was hoping (and praying) that she'd get better.  Instead, she's gotten worse.  I feel it's time to ask for the support of our amazing friends - to come together to send tons of healing purrs and prayers and love to sweet Lita so she can heal.

After our vet visit in early October (which went amazingly well!), Lita began to have more asthma attacks.  Soon she was having asthma attacks nearly everyday.  Then it became a daily thing.  Now, she's up to several coughing spells/asthma attacks a day.

I am in very close contact with her vet.  Her new vet is AMAZING.  I cannot say enough good things about her! 

We have tried adjusting Lita's asthma medications.  Nothing has really made a dent, though.
