Tama's Troubled Tuesday


Tama-Chan: We are posting rather late today as #1 and Tommy had to make a return trip to the vet's this morning. After seeming to get better, Tommy  had a bit of a relapse, refusing all food again this morning. When we got there, Dr. C took his temperature and it was 39.9C/104F. This time, she did a complete blood panel on him and everything is looking fine. His white blood cells are just over the high end of the normal range but that barely registers, and there is nothing obvious in the breakdown either. In fact, Dr. C said she hadn't seen blood panel results so good in a while. His heart also sounds fine and his output is normal. He is a little seized up so she thinks he has an upper respiratory infection of sorts. He is now on antibiotics, plus something to line his stomach. #1 is obviously worried as she is due to leave on Friday for a few days, although she knows that Ms. A will look after him as well as she would, having raised him from birth.

Here are some pics of Tommy from today. First at the vet's:


And then from his short walk today, after being hand-fed chicken breast:



We would appreciate any purrs or woofs you might send our way. We really need our Tommy to be back to his high-energy self soonest!

Since my name is on this post, here is a token picture of me too:

Major paw crossing going on here - this is very worrying, not knowing what is wrong. Äiti says she wishes we could talk.......

Oh, poor Tommy. At least it isn't serious. That's a very good thing. Feel better, honey pie!

Tommy we are purring for you--and we are glad to see Tama as well.

No no no Tommy, you've got to keep getting better.
I am going to talk to my white and orangey kitty, Schroeder, about this. He has magical telepathic powers. I will have him send you all of our good thoughts and prayers and then you will feel good again, okay?

Linda said...

Get well soon, Tommy!

Mr. Black said...

I am sending my purrs to Tommy (me, sending purrs to a dog...amazing). The lady sends her best thoughts. We hope the antibiotics work. Tommy does look good in those photos.

And Tama-chan, you look lovely, as usual.

Ginger Jasper said...

Sweet woofie friend. You must get well. I am sending you my loudest rumbly purrs to help your recovery.. Hugs GJ xx

Sparkle said...

I am sending LOTS of purrs Tommy's way. It sounds like he could not have someone better looking after him while #1 is away... although my human knows how stressful it is to be out of town while one of us is not feeling 100%.

Pei In The Life said...

Oh dear!

Get better soon Uncle Tommy!

Chingmy Kisses!

We are hoping it is just a mild virus he has and that Tommy will soon be back to his usual self. But we know it must be a concern for #1. All paws crossed here for things to improve.
