Au Update and Wise and Wonderful Masters

 Au is still not eating properly.  He won't touch his biscuits, not the special diet ones or the usual ones, and he's not touching his roast chicken.  In desperation I went out yesterday and bought him sliced chicken breast from the supermarket.  He ate half a slice.  It's not ideal but he needs something in his tummy.  I'm calling the vet later today.

As for the rest: we're gearing up for Chinese New Year, my favourite time of year usually.  I love this holiday because it's party time Chinese style which is always fun.  Plus, it's when the geomancers and feng shui masters publish their forecasts for the year ahead.

This year my favourite Wise and Wonderful Master (he calls himself this so it must be true) has given us the secret to gaining X-ray vision.

Another wise master has given us cutouts and directions for prayers that will guarantee good luck - plus a warning that photocopies of the cutouts won't be blessed right and won't work!


A third master has given us some tips for Western zodiac signs.  As these are obviously inferior, he's decorated those pages with scantily clad models. 


Our Chinese friends were horrified when they saw us consulting these books.  "Con artists!" Justin huffed.  "Crooks!" Lim puffed.

But when we told them the bit where we had "bad wealth luck this month, but this can be remedied by setting up the Three Lucky Coin Pouch, available P35, price RM88" they got super-interested. Blatant commercialism is always fun. 

We spent an hour checking out all our fortunes and had a great time with the catalogs of lucky items at the back.

As all the masters have given us lucky numbers to gamble on, but they all recommend different numbers, we're somewhat confused. However, as Justin said, we can check what wins next month and take it from there.  Yeah.

The other advantage of investing in several Wise and Wonderful Masters is that you can pick one who gives you the best fortune.

I hope your Year of the Rabbit is Happy, Lucky, Healthy, Fun, Prosperous and Auspicious.  That should cover it, no?

Sweet Au, we're purring for you my friend, I hope you will be better and hungry in no time.

Eric and Flynn said...

We hope Au soon starts to eat. We send purrs to him.

Katnip Lounge said...

See if he'll eat baby food, no spices or onions. Most Kitties LOVE it. Perhaps he needs an anti-nausea shot. I was thinking that his liver numbers could be bad due to the rapid weight loss...poor guy...and poor you! Big purrs and {{hugs}} to you.

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

I agree with Katnip lounge about the baby food....something similar happened with Bobo once and he did respond to baby food.

Sending purrs and prayers for Au......xoxoxo

MoMo said...

I am continuing to send my purrs to Au although I am not well myself. Same here, not eating! I have had 2-3 morsels of wet food in the last 5 days and some sips of water. The vet doesn't know what's wrong......

I will try what Catnip Lounge suggests as well....

Mr Puddy said...

Au, Special Purrs for you. If I were you I take Katnip Lounge's advice because it works well with so many cats.

I am glad that Au ate a little bit of chicken. I hope that she gets her appetite back soon. I like the bit about consulting several Wise and Wonderful Masters, then picking the one you like best. I hope that you also have a happy and prosperous Year of the Rabbit.

At least he ate something. I had some troubles with Arthur too, but he had a gum infection and that's why he didn't eat. Now he is back to normal !
I once celebrated chines New Year in Chinatown in London ! Was that fun ! We arrived there and didn't know what was going on ! the dragons an all these festivities and the food was great ! what good memories !

Boo-Bah said...

We are so sorry to hear that Au has liver disease. Try strained baby meat where it is just the meat. My cats and dogs sometimes will eat this when they aren't feeling well.
We hope he will be feeling better soon. Maybe the vet will have more answers when Au goes again.

Anya said...

Geweldig dat Au toch nog iets gegeten heeft , beter iets dan niets !!!
Beterschap en heel veel knuffels!!!!

Betsie wilde vandaag ook niks eten!

Geniet van het Chinese nieuwe jaar feesten Ellen ...
