Manly Monday

I get to go first in today's post because Yuu-Chan's leg is still sore and he's feeling a little sorry for himself. We now suspect the soreness is a symptom of a calicivirus infection that also caused the eye problems. Paws crossed he is all better soon. I really miss playing with him! As for Tom, he is still spending some time with the cone and some with bandages. So, right now, I am the only truly valid one among us three brothers.

I have been hanging out with Tom as much as I can.

Yesterday, I also helped #1 make the bed:

and I had a bit of an adventure as #1 and Uncle U had lunch on the terrace, and both Yuu-Chan and I got to go out in our harnesses!

Yuu-Chan: I hate the fact that my leg is sore because it means I can't run and play, and my little brother doesn't really understand. #1 has been taking really good care of me and I have been spending a lot of time either in the hammock:

or on other soft and comfortable surfaces:

Tom: I continue to be submitted to various tortures associated with my foot. It is regularly bathed in a diluted Betadine solution to keep it clean, and I get cream put on it. Then I get either the cone or some kind of bandage. #1 took pity on me yesterday and left the cone off as it was so hot. It is cooler today and raining, so I have it back on. Bummer.

Still, my overall form is not affected by this, as can be seen in the following:

And here are some exceptional flying ears for you!

And just one more shot:


  1. Sorry about the health troubles, Tom and Yuu. Feel better soon! The second to last shot of Tommy is a great Dlying Ears one!

  2. Those harnesses are great. Most colorful and look super comfy as well.


  3. I"m sorry Tommy and Yuu-Chan are still feeling poorly. I am purring for you both to get all better soon. That calicivirus is very mean!

  4. Very manly of you to still play frisbee even while injured Tommy! We are sorry to hear about Yuu-Chan's calici. Hope he is feeling better soon. You boys looked like you enjoyed your time wearing the harnesses and getting outside.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  5. Lots of purrs for you- calicivirus is horrible. Stran-veli has it and he has to be careful of bacteria and viruses. He gets a very sore mouth from it and bad lungs. We hope it calms down sooon!

  6. We're sorry to hear your paw is still hurty Tommy and that Yuu-Chan is still under the weather too with a sore leg. It just goes to show us ladies are the hardier sex!!
    Hope you're both better soon.

  7. It seems like this is Bad Foot and Leg Month. Blog Mom is still limping around, although she refuses to wear a cone. I hope you boys get all better real fast.

    wags, Lola

  8. Tommy & Yuu we are purring for you to get better soon.

  9. We are purring that you are both better real soon...but Tommy...those ears!!!! You make us smile!

  10. Boys, we are so sorry to hear you are feeling poorly. We are sending lots of purrs.

  11. Yuu-chan and Tommy, we hope you both feel better soon. Tom, you do look pitiful in your cone.

  12. We hope you both feel better soon.
    This calicivirus....this is the second time we have heard about it....Whicky Wuudler (if you know him), said maybe I should be tested for that.
    Hope you guys will be ok, and Tommy, just love that last shot!

  13. I just love the way your ears fly Tommy, you're so cute.

  14. Tom and Yuu--my goodness what is up with the leg and foot stuff? Is Yuu have sympathy pain too? Poor kids. Have a good Monday and I look forward to happier feet and legs soon!
