Still sneezy but better overall

Chun is still occasionally sneezy. He seems more sneezy this evening than before. But since Tuesday, he has improved dramatically. He was already acting pretty normal by Tuesday evening and yesterday he didn’t act sick at all, except for the occasional sneeze. He took several long baths and got his stripes all silky and smooth again. My unverifiable theory is that his fever was already improving by the time we took him to the vet, though I’m definitely glad we went. He got his full dose of sub-Q fluids yesterday morning. The strategy that worked was making smoochy noises at him while skritching his chin the whole time, so he thought that he was sitting still because he wanted to, not because we wanted him to. I don’t even think he noticed the needle.

Lotus sneezed a few times this morning but it could have been normal sneezing from fraternizing with the dust bunnies (well, preying upon the dust bunnies is more accurate). Otherwise he has been normal.

Now Chun is being super affectionate.

    So glad to hear it! Nothing is more worrying than when our furkids are sick!

      It’s funny that all my life I’ve never had a kitty affected by a head cold like this. Maybe it has happened but it was so fleeting or mild that it didn’t alarm me.

    Whew, that’s a relief! To calm my kitties when they need medicine, I do the chin skritching bit and offer sushi treats. Actually they love the Bonita flakes, but I call it sushi.
    Hugs to Chun!

    what a beautiful pic of Chun! I gasped as I scrolled down and the pic came in view.
    thrilled to hear he’s better, and you, relieved

    • littlemiao says:

      thank you. he agrees that he is beautiful. In fact, maybe it was all the awe and praise that the new vet showered on him that morning that helped him to feel better.

    He knows you took care of him.
    Makes him all happy and cuddly.

  5. Awww, that is great news!

    Hugs, Sammy and Mom

    So glad he’s feeling better. It really is terrible when kitties have colds.

    Espressa, my sr-most cat, goes in for her annual tomorrow and I’m hoping to drag Adam along for stitch removal.

    Glad Chun is better and I hope no one else decides to get sick! LOVELY photo!

    It looks like Chun is giving you happy paws in thanks for all your attention and worry?

    Aubrey has been known to leave her toy fish in Mother’s room when she isn’t feeling well. Sort of like leaving a lizard tail, except we bought it at the drug store for $5.

    Animals know.
