Target Is Sick

On Sunday Target had a sore throat.  On Monday night he started sneezing.  The vet has confirmed our poor little cat has Cat Flue. 

Luckily Target is fully inoculated so it's very mild.  He doesn't have a fever or runny eyes or a runny nose.  And he's eating.  But he isn't feeling 100%.

The vet says Target will recover soon but in the meantime he recommended plenty of bed rest so our baby is tucked up in bed.  I'm bringing him lactose-free milk every few hours to cheer him up.  And of course he needs extra cuddles so I'm spending lots of time in bed too!

We're keeping Au away from him as Au is FIV positive.  Au is now on his chair downstairs, and Guido is keeping him company.

We'll be back in a day or so with more news.

We know these colds are fairly common, but we're sending purrs to Target for a speedy recovery! The extra attention should help! :-)

Your photo is so great -- it's clearly a picture of a kitty who is feeling glum and snuffly. Best wishes to Target, and to Au, who is quite possibly irked at having to entertain Guido. :-)
