So this morning Floyd is still ok - not great but ok. He is still not eating on his own but he is being very good about being fed. And he does usually give the food a few licks on his own. Hopefully we will get some good answers next week after we see the specialist. You can see from the pics yesterday he looks pretty good - they don't really reflect his weight loss (all that fur hides it) and I noticed he is also loosing quite a bit of fur again - which is to be expected. But like I said, he is holding his own. For you newbies Floyd is the all black kitty sitting on the floor yesterday.
If you take a close look at the Kirzon pics yesterday (he is the black and white - easy to spot with no Virgil pics) he looks a little thin around his eyes. I am trying to keep an eye on him too - he may have something going on with allergies - I think it was this time last year he had the same thing. We have more eye medicine then a pharmacy at our house so I know I can take care of it without a vet visit - luckily the stuff from last year is still in code, plus I think that it is the same one we have for Barney (I have to read them - there are 2 where the tubes are similar). He is also getting the stinky breath a bit again, so he will need the tooth cleaning soon. With Floyd getting sicker that will be delayed a bit, so he may need to do the antibiotics again before he goes. But he is eating well so I am not too worried at this point. I will keep an eye on him.
Lola is very snuggly lately, and she has been very nice to Floyd - she loves him more than the other cats - he took care of her as a kitten (he was a great mom) and she likes to be near him if she is nervous, like when they were both at the vet. She is less crabby then normal and I think it is because the younger ones are being calmer. And in case you didn't know, she is the gray kitty.
Virgil wasn't in any pics yesterday - he was busy in the kitchen playing with stuff and knocking it down. And running around like a maniac. And chasing various toys. He is such a sweetie to me but he is absolutely hilarious when Brad comes home - for about 10 minutes he will rub on his legs and just be crazy - I never noticed it until yesterday - he litterally slides down to the floor while rubbing on his legs. It is so funny I have to get it on tape.
Finally, Barney. He is almost 6 months old now - I can't believe it. He is still pretty bitey and sometimes it is very hard to get him to stop. But he is getting better. Oh, have you seen the video of the orange cat yelling at the black and white cat - like she is a woman mad at him for cheating? If not you can see it HERE. I don't remember the first place I saw it - I just searched and found it here - no idea if it is on youtube but it would not surprise me. Anyway, I thought it would be funny to see the cats react to it so I started it at home, and Barney freaked out! He thought it really was a cat in the house and bolted! I turned it off right away and tried to call him back - it took about 15 minutes and he was very nervously looking around to see if the angry cat was still there. I felt bad for him, but it was pretty funny. The other cats looked over but didn't really care much about it.
Oh, and I forgot to mention - Barney will be an elf, based on the votes recived. I will be posting the Halloween pics first, in the next day or so, and then will be trying for the elf pictures. Wish me luck!
