Thankful Thursday

I'm VERY thankful for all the well wishes, purrs and love you have all sent to me and my family. I was going to try and get around to thank you all tonight but our interweb wasn't working and now it is almost bedtime for Meowmie.

Last night I perked up somewhat, had an appetite stimulant (Periactin) and ate some Royal Canin convalescence foods and didn't isolate myself. I joined Meowmie on the bed at bedtime and tussled with Castle for Position Number 1, like I do every night. I was still quiet-ish but not like the night before.

This morning, well, I didn't fancy a big breakfast and ignored the cat food Meowmie put out so she mixed up some Royal Canin convalescence food again, I refused to eat it from the bowl, only from Meowmie's fingers - it took almost an hour of finger-licking to eat the whole bowl up! Meowmie was a bit late for work as a result. Here I am this morning, enjoying my breakfast:



Tonight, well I didn't want any cat food so I had an appetite stimulant and then Meowmie went out and got some chicken for her dinner so she could do a chicken test with me. I passed with flying colours and ate up fair amount of it. For dessert I licked vanilla yoghurt off Meowmie's fingers. This is my Give-Me-The-Chicken-face, can you see the utter desperation in my eyes? Even when I am ill and refuse all other food I still get hungry for chicken! (Can you also see where Ben Vet stole my furs yesterday too!?!!)



So, I still feel quiet and I am still not 'myself'. I feel a bit wobbly on my feet too; tonight I have been stamping/shaking my back leg like Thumper the Rabbit and occasionally I sort of loose my balance, but only very occasionally. This is a new thing and we are a bit baffled as to why I am doing this. We'll ask Ben Vet on Sunday. At least I have eaten though, if only a small to average amount.

I've just settled down next to Meowmie and Castle on the sofa, I have spent a fair bit of time this evening on my own in the hallway, under my chair, but I fancy a stroke or two from Meowmie and a cuddle from Castle right now. Meowmie is fussing over me so much, she is worried, I can tell, specially when she has the occasional eye-leak ...one thing is for sure, she definitely loves me.

Night night...sleep tight xxx

Stormie, I am glad you are eating. I hope you are just milking this to get more chicken... purrs.

jane said...

Great news that you are eating and can still do the "gimmie chicken" face. You rest up Storm and take it easy.

PS: Ask Ben to have a look at your potassium levels, sometimes when these are a little low it can cause a bit of a balance issue, but it's easily corrected (just a thought)

Parker said...

It was wonderful seeing you enjoy a little food! You have a squillion hugs and purrs from us here in O Hi O!

Isis said...

Ah, the chicken test means two different things it seems... ;) Here it is a test to see if the humans are fast enough to get the chicken on the plates and eaten before the Abys descend and try and devour it! ;) Sadly for us just like you our humans pass the chicken test, although I hear they are willing to share the chicken in 8 days time when my brother Ramses will be celebrating his 5th Birthday! :) I'm sure they won't notice if a lovely Meezer or two wanted to join in the chicken eating fun round here! ;) Oh and what's great is Tigmut'hep doesn't like chicken that much so it's all ours! :)

Stormiekins, You have been in my heart and on my mind today.
I loved the video of you eating. YOu are a good girl. I hope BenVet can figure out why you are wobbly. I am wobbly sometimes but that is because I am 17 years old and I have my creaky moments.
I am glad your mommie can feed you.
It is good to make her happy that you still like eating. Stormie, you are a great friend and I will be thinking about you this week-end.
Sending purrrs and prayers your way.
Love always, Prinnie

Kaze, Latte, & Chase said...

Why do the vet people steal our blood from our neck? Well Chase is really nasty about it so for him they have to do his leg but still, blood on meezer fur is uncool!

I'm very happy you're feeling better!

Junior said...

Stormie, I am so glad you have perked up a bit and are eating. I loved watching you lick that food off your Moms fingers and it was good of her to stay and do that and be late for work. She does love you very much.

Get plenty of rest, stay warm and eat lots!

We are sending hugs to you and your family......and purrayers.

Boy said...

Do eat more Storm! I'm sending you purrs and purrs and purrs that you feel much better soon!

Daisy said...

Storm, I think you should get to eat EVERY meal from your mom's fingers. I am purring and purring for you. Stay strong and eat well!

I'm sorry you're still not feeling well and not acting your usual self. I know your Meowmie worries. Good luck visiting with Ben Vet Sunday. I hope he doesn't have to steal anymore of your furs this time, that can't be any fun. Are you sure you're not holding out for more chicken tests? Hugs for you and your Meowmie.
