Waiting for the Doctor to come in & take my temperature

I started feeling poorly and my human said if I didn’t feel better the next day she threatened me with a visit to the Cat Doctor vet.

Shhh I'm not feeling well

The next day I felt much worse and looked a bit raggedy with a hollow horse meow

So it was to pass…….

Boxed up to Cat Doctor vet...... sigh

Down we went to the Cat Doctor with me protesting all the way. I hate being boxed in the back of the car!!!!

That night I settled down in front of the Aga and had a cozy night but the next day was the start of the pills……. a week of twice a day pills…..

Yuck yuck yuck I hate taking pills!!!!

Later that morning I was feeling well enough to help bring the mare and foal out to the field.

No rest for the sick; helping take the mare & foal out

Off down the lane way to turn them out

Come on what are you waiting for?

    It looks like you’re feeling a little better. Don’t overdo it! You deserve more Shepherd’s Pie and Aga time!

    did you know that cat nip is a natural fever reducer? I found this out when my kitty had a fever.

  5. Hi Bo.
    Heard from Toby the Cat on Twitter that you were not feeling well.
    Purrs you are well after all the pills are gone.
    Looks like you are one busy kitty!

    Hi Bodacious, I had forgotten you, though I don’t know how. Hope you are over the flue now. Vets are not nice places but they do make you feel better. More useful than doctors. Keep up the good work I won’t detain you as I guess this is a very busy time for you. Love Maureen. (sorry I am a human) but you would hae loved our Norweign Forrest Cat named Petal sadly gone 2 years ago, still miss her, you bring back happy memories. She would have loved your life.

    he is a lovely fluffy ball of fur! I love all the stories you tell. And I can’t believe he is so friendly with those animals!! Hugs to Bodacious from Argentina
