UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

Since it has been quite a long time since we have been active, we are going to be Under Construction for a while - trying new fonts, designs, and updating our sidebar stuff. Hopefully we will get it how we like it soon so it won't change too much!

Also - Can someone tell me how to get rid of the giant gap below this notice - I cannot figure out how to do it - thanks!!

Virgil Update

Sorry I didn't post an update yesterday. We went to our regular vet, and he found that Virgil's fever had come down a bit. He is still walking funny but better at the vets than at our house (I think part of that is he has to get used to the floor). He has no broken bones and his lungs sound good. So he is on antibiotics and pain killers and hopefully will be back to normal soon. Last night he was feeling better and playing a bit with some of the toys. He was also a little stoned from the pain meds because he sees reflections in the floor and thinks they are things to try and get - I really think it is a reflection of his white feet. Barney was bugging him but he stopped eventually. He is still crabby to me when I try to give him his medicine because it doesn't taste good at all (at least that is my guess). The pain meds are the worst because they are absorbed through the tissue in his mouth, so you kind of squirt it along his gums - he doesn't like that at all. His eyes are still really dialated from the pain meds so I will probably just not take any pictures for a couple days - I will try and post some older ones when I get home.

The rest of the cats are ok - Lola is getting used to the floor and spends more time downstairs now. Barney loves it and runs all over. Floyd and Kirzon are just going with the flow - they are pretty indifferent to it. I, of course, love it. It makes the place feel much more like an urban loft then a suburban townhouse. Anyway, back to work for me. Thanks to everyone for all the kind wishes for Virgil. We all really appreciate it!

We do not blame you, Virgil. We do not like taking medicines either. We are glad your fever has come down and you are feeling better!

We hope that Virgil will feel better, and better, and BETTER!

Virgil, WE don't like to take meds either! Keep getting better.

I was just catching up to you, and was sorry to hear that Virgil has been so ill! I'm glad he's finally coming around, though. It must all be a lot since he and Lola are also wary of the new floor.

I'm not surprised that Barney took to it right away -- everything is new to a kitten! I'm glad Floyd and Kirzon aren't affected by the changes either.

I hope Virgil improves soon.
We'll pray and purr!

We are all very glad to hear that Virgil is doing better. We'll keep purring for a full and quick recovery.

We hope Virgil continues to improve so he can stop taking the yucky medicines!

The Creek Cats said...

I'm glad to hear Virgil is doing a little better.

Mishkat said...

We're glad Virgil is feeling a little better - we hope he continues to improve. Sorry he has to take those yucky meds, though (we hate liquid medication, and our mom hates giving it to us!)

Many purrs from Franklin, Dobby, and Tasha

Just an FYI...we saw you left a comment on GJ's page about being a host to Moo and Baa. We'll be getting them, then right before they're about to move on...we'll see if you still want to! :o)
