COT: Recovering

Last week Au showed me he had a small hole in his side that had turned septic.  I took him straight to the vet, and he had a jab.  Luckily the abscess was quite small, so we didn't have it bursting and draining.


Poor old Au though turned out not to like his medicine.  He was terribly ill twenty minutes after taking it.  I went and got him a different lot, and that was OK for one day.  Then that made him ill too.

As his abscess was shrinking nicely, I decided to leave him alone.  I just check on it twenty times a day by "petting" him.  Au knows perfectly well what I'm doing but he lets me fuss.

Today the abscess is almost totally gone.  And Au is feeling his old self again.  When I opened up a new bag of cat biscuits, Target and Au both raced over to eat the first bit from the top of the biscuit barrel.  As Au would say, "It's my favrut!"

Au! You should your medicine, mate! Have you been fighting with a feral cat that you get that abscess? Take care, OK?

Oh no! Poor Au! I am so, so glad to hear that he is much better. I would like to buy him 10 barrels of biscuits so he gets to nibble all the top ones. Pixie is like Au too. He gets very sick if put on antibiotics and is prone to fever after a vaccination. It makes me more protective over him when he is unwell.

It's good that cats sometimes heal themselves without big medication ! So he is back to himself now, if the appetite is there ... :)

We're glad you're feeling better, Au! Sending you many purrs.

P.S. your human is really nice to let you two eat out of the top of the biscuit barrel like that! We never get to do that!

We're so glad that Au is doing better! Look at that big barrel of foods!

To answer your question, Sadie is an Alaskan Husky. She was rescued from a puppy mill as a puppy so we don't know if she's mixed with anything else but she was bred to be a sled dog.
