we have alot of sick cats. in the FELV area...ronnie, asia, betsy, misfit and the rock are all battling a cold. the rock is by far the sickest, he really os not feeling very well. we have moved him into a cage to moniter him more closely and are hoping the meds kick in by tomorrow because he has been on them long enough now. louise is also unwell...but she does not have a cold. i am not sure what is up with her but i am assuming it is not something very good. i think the anemia is bringing her down, she hasn't moved off the couch since i saw her at 7 am this morning..her eyes, nose, mouth, chest and breathing is clear and she just seems incredibly tired and when i looked at her gums tonight, they are awfully pale.
we weren't very careful with our infection control and the cold virus is airborn and it has moved into the medical area. tasha is a bit congested but it is apollo that i am really worried about. because he is a diabetic, he is more suseptible to infection than most. he is so stuffed up that he is not the least bit interested in eating and this is really going to mess up his insulin dose.
everyone is on antibiotics and immune boosters and i started the sickest on some homeopathic decongestants and sc fluids. i called the vet...they weren't too keen to have our germ laden friends hanging out and infecting the clinic...they said to force feed and do the fluids and call them in the morning and let them know how everyone is doing.
al is over his "woe is me" and eddy is driving me nutz jumping on and off the keyboard. tony is sitting next to me trying to decide if he should climb up on my lap again...mr. stiffy sure wants to be a little lap dog.
i think i got three "i know you are full but...." emails and a couple "if you know of a home..." emails...but sadly not a single..."hey, i won the lottery and i have a ton of money to give to saints." or " i would like to volunteer to work my butt off..." emails...that kind of sucks.
anyway...i am working myself up to a major "get on top of everything and everyone and pick up all of the dropping balls" spastic fix everything fit and this is never too much fun for anyone.
good thing i only have 2 days off....a week and i could turn this place upside down...2 days will only give me enough time to fix up a couple of the bigger things....but next week i have 3 days off!
