Au Is Fine

Three days ago Au woke me up just before 5 in the morning to say he was feeling sick.  I stroked his back while he yakked.

He didn't have a fever so I let him sleep all day.  That evening he asked for food, and then he yakked up his dinner - in two goes.

As Au is 14 years old and I am a fusspot, I held his paw most of the night that followed.  In the morning he seemed perfectly ok and he asked for food.  So I rushed off to the market at dawn to buy fresh chicken.
Au snoozling

While it roasted, Au demanded breakfast saying he was STARVING.  I gave him a sliver of ham and watched him anxiously.  He held it down.

When the chicken was ready, he ate and stalked about moaning about how hungry he was when I made him wait for seconds.  Then he had thirds and later fourths, all without any signs of being sick.

Au's a funny old boy.  He's a bit stand-offish sometimes but when he's ill he comes straight to me.  And now he's better, he's still grateful.  He came to say hello to me at 1 o'clock this morning and for a moment I thought he was feeling bad again.  But he just gave me a furry purry headbutt and went to sleep.

I love my old fuzzy.

I sure hope Au is feeling all better really soon. It's so hard for kitties to be sick.

You're a good mom. Going out to the market to get fresh chicken to roast. You're a special mom looking out for a special "kid".

I hope Au continues to feel better, and that he just maybe ate a bad bug or something that was only temporary.

We hope you are feeling better Au - it goes to show that three plates of chicken make you feel better than one!

Aw, we sure hope you're fine now, Au, that it was just a blip, an upset tummy, and that you stay well!

I'm so glad Au is doing better. He is such a beautiful senior kitty. Glad to hear he runs right to mommy when he is feeling under the weather.

Hey Au, Hey Target, Hey Guido, Jet here. Hi Miss Ellen.

Thank Ceiling Cat Au is on the mend. (my BFF, Savannah, from Savannah's Paw Tracks, told me to reference the Ceiling Cat).

You take such loving care, that's why he trusts you at times of infirmity.

I'm glad Au's feeling better! Sometimes...well, yak happens. Let's hope that's all it was.

Tamago said...

I'm glad Au is doing better after some vomittings. I hope he continues to be fine.
It's sweet that he comes to you when feeling sick. And of course for headbutts :-)

The Whiskeratti said...

We're glad Au is keeping his noms down. And it's so sweet that he knows just where to go when he doesn't feel well.

Mishkat said...

We're all purring for Au! Glad to hear that he's better. Tasha really seems to enjoy vomiting but Franklin and Dobby only do it when they really feel awful, so they are very sympathetic.

Our mom says she's very glad he comes to you when he's not feeling well. Sending (((hugs)))

So relieved he's ok... I'm a worrier too where the cats are concerned. And I managed to finally get on your page (it keeps telling me it can't find the server) so hurrah! Nice to be back.
