The Kitty Returns & Day 11

Whew! Atticus is home and has survived the 1st day of Mommy giving fluids and meds. Last night I had to force feed home baby food as he refused to eat but this morning I awoke to his purrs in my ear urging me to the kitchen and his bag of food. By the time I was ready to give him his morning meds he had gone back for 3rds. Hungry kitty! He is on a painkiller derived from morphine, I call it 'kitty heroin'. I have a few pics of him stoned out, he looks kinda cute.



He seems to be feeling better, and even came for cuddles on the bed. And he is a purr machine! Even between doses of kitty heroin, lol. Elke (his 1 1/2 year old sister) isn't quite sure what to make of him. She is particularly offened by his smell and I don't blame her. He is a bit of 'dribbler' these days and though he does his best to clean himself he doesn't always get everything. The vet says that this should most likely go away, but there is a small chance he will remain a 'dribbler'. I am happy as long as he remains unblocked! We go to the vet on Monday for another look at his kidneys and to see how or if they have recovered. And to to talk about options if they I haven't. I am scared.



as for it being Day 11, I got a lovely surprise form paperscraps (Mary) with a beautifully altered composition book. I love the sparkly gold 'K'!

Oh honey, I know you're worried about Atticus but I know he's so glad to be home and getting all that good Mommy love. My best wishes that all shows well when he returns to the vet.

I love your new journal/comp book. It's delightful!

Peace & Love,
~Barb~

I just thought I'd share that a friend of mine has a 14 yr old Missy Girl cat that has had the same kidney problem and won't eat so at 87 years my friend has been hand feeding her cat for 3 years now.

I just found your blog through thru flickr. I just wanted to say that I hope Atticus was able to recover from his problems. I went thru the same thing with my Merlin several times who looks almost identical to Atticus. He finally had to have a type of plastic surgery that opened his uretha to the size of a females so that it wouldn't get blocked. They couldn't figure out why he kept getting blocked. It has been a few years now, but he is doing good. I hope Atticus is as well. They really take a piece of our hearts.

Hi Kati,

I thought I would stop by your blog and check it out. Looks like your falling behind on your post. :( I have a blog (2) and I fell behind on one then created a 2nd dedicated to art. I know I love to write but I also love reading other peoples blogs. I put your blog in my Snarf reader so post away so I can read your blog and look at your art work.

Love the atc cards you sent me.

All My Best,
Lorrie Mello from Massachusetts
