Honey feels yucky

Honey has barely eaten anything nor has she been drinking.  I called the vet this morning and he told me to discontinue the antibiotic because it is probably upsetting her tummy.  Last week when she had the clavamox the same thing happened with her not eating much.  I didn't give her any pain meds this morning because i was hoping to get a hold of Carla Simmons, i thought maybe that they were making her sick too.

Carla and I spoke around noon today.  I told her what had happened over that last 10 days.  She checked in with honey.  She said Honey says she feels yucky, odd, confused and nauseated.  Carla explained to her what has happened in the operation and why it had to happen.  Honey understood why it all had to happen.  Honey said her foot was throbbing, not majorly but at a lower level and constant.  Honey would like to try half a dose of her medicine rather than the whole dose that makes her sleep.  I asked Carla to tell Honey that I need her to eat and drink.  I have been giving Honey water with an eye dropper.  Carla told her that she needed to eat and drink and that she would start to feel better, that it would be slow.  She said because of honey's age that she is not bouncing back as quickly.  I gave Honey a half dose of the pain meds when we got off of the phone.

I went down to Whole foods and bought some rescue remedy for me and Honey,  I sprayed some on Honey.  I also bought some wellness cat food in a pouch because it looked like a lot of gravy and she likes gravy.  So when I got back,  I put the food in a little bowl and took it to Honey on the bed, sprayed her with some rescue remedy and she licked all of the gravy out of the bowl of food.  So i put some water back into the food and stirred it up and gave her that water with the eye dropper and she took it all.   She seemed to have perked up a bit after all that.  She will get the other half of her pain meds dose in a little bit.  I will be working from home for a few more days till things seems stable.  She was giving me head butts which hasn't happened since last week.

Just keep giving her anything she will eat or drink. NutriCal helped save BratCat's life more than once when he refused food.

I am keeping purring for Honey. When I was so ill last month, I wouldn't eat either. I don't often get treats but that was the only thing I would eat. Mum called it my junk food diet but said she would rather I ate that than nothing. She is sure it was the antibiotics that caused all my problems too.

Good girl, Honey, licking up that gravy. Your mom is an angel for taking such excellent care of you.

We're sorry Honey has been feeling so yucky. It's awful when medicines that are supposed to help have those side effects. We are crossing all paws and hooves and sending purrs that things get better very soon.

Purrs,
The Chans (and the rest of the Gang too)
