Mancat Monday and an Update on Milita

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine.  

Last week, mes went to the Stabby Place with Lita, and mes was not amused.  Mes thought it was only Lita who was going!  

The Mom got mes out of my carrier first.  Dr. Stabby weighed mes, and said mes weighs 11 pounds - my highest weight to date!  

Dr. Stabby said the Mom could decrease my Prednisone dose and see mes again in three months because mes is doing so well.  

So mes and the Mom were happy that mes was doing so well.  Then on Friday, the Mom's friend, D, noticed that mes was limping and told the Mom.  Theys looked at all my feets and all my toes and poked at thems all and made mes annoyed.  D told the Mom that he saw that one of my claws looked black and blue on my left front paw.  The Mom was worried and watched mes walk around for a bit.  Mes was even sitting with my left front paw off the floor.  The Mom was sad that mes was in pain and did what hers could to makes mes comfy.  

The next day, mes wasn't limping as bad, and yesterday mes limped a little less, still.  The Mom had D look at my paw yesterday, and hims said that my claw is not black and blue anymores.  It is back to pink like the rest of my claws.  The Mom is glad that it is healing on its own.  Hers thinks mes probably got my claw stuck somewheres and tore it a bit.  Hers will continue to watch mes to make sure mes is healing and not in pain.  

Milita Update

The Mom here with an update on Milita.  The Clavamox made Milita very sick - she was vomiting at least once a day and had runny stool.  I was concerned, so I called the vet on Friday, and she said I could stop the Clavamox.  Still, I wanted to keep her on it if it was possible.  Unfortunately, she was feeling too terrible while taking it.  She began to eat very little, and in addition to the vomiting and diarrhea, I decided it was best to discontinue the Clavamox.  She was even seeking Carmine out and hanging out near him, which you can see in the photo above, and she never does that.  

I will be asking the vet what we can give her instead of Clavamox tomorrow when she goes back in for another chest x-ray.  She is still taking the Baytril and Prednisone.  

We would appreciate continued purrs and prayers for Lita.  Thankfully, there has been no coughing in days, and I'm hoping this is a sign that she's healing from the pneumonia.

  2. I am so very very sorry for Milita. The Baytril is very very strong. What infection does precious Milita have?

  3. Poor Milita. I had trouble with Clamavox, too, and can't take it. We're purring for her and hope she is better soon.

    Carmine, I ripped one of my claws out one time and it really hurt! I hope your claw is better now.
