Hospital Visit

Hello, it's me, Jake, and I am in the hospital. I have an IV in my leg for fluids. I know that Skeezix would disagree, but I don't think that pink is a good color for this ManCat. Mom came to visit me tonight and that made me so happy that I purred and purred. I am feeling a little better since the staff gave me some fluids and administered meds. I even ate some of the crunchy bits and used the litter box.


I have to stay here overnight? Mom, do you really have to go? I hate being sick. I wanna go home.















Thank you all for your good wishes. They mean a lot.

Friday evening update: I am home and I feel MUCH better! Thank you for your positive thoughts.

We're glad you're feelin' a little better, Jake. I (Smeagol) had to stay overnight at the v-e-t early this year and it's no fun, but hopefully they'll be able to make you feel all better and you can go home tomorrow.
We're still sendin' you strong purrs.

Y'know Jake, Skeezix is right about pink, it does something for a mancat. I'm really glad you are feeling a bit better. I hope the amylase issue is something treatable like pancreatitis and you feel much better soon and can escape from the hospital and be back home with your Mom and Bathsheba

Rumbly Purrs to you fella

Oh Jake! We didn't realize you were sick! I'm glad you're HOME and feeling better now. Vets sometimes refer to NQR Kitties - Not Quite Right. That's when we won't tell them what's wrong, even in tests.

Anyway, stay well, furiend! I didn't like my pills either, but if I didn't eat it in a pill pocket, Mom just popped it down my throat so fast, I was surprised and just purred! Victor's a sucker for Pill Pockets. There are new flavors from Greenies; you might like them.

Bathsheba, please be nice to Jake while he's not feeling well. Be a compassionate queen.

Jake, dude! Get well sooner! I see yur cage had a 'caution' tag - kewl!!! It's ok to sleep wif yur mom when yur feelin better. They's nice pillows.
Purrs,
