Feeling Better

Just a quick note to let everyone know that Tungsten is feeling much better. Some antibiotics from the doctor helped, though I think it may have turned her poop to liquid. I understand that destroying more bacteria than just the bad ones can do that. The orange one startled me on the weekend by pooping outside the litter-box, for the first time in years. In fact, she didn’t even get close to it, relieving herself in my bedroom at one o’clock in the morning. I suspect that she had to go and felt that she couldn’t make it downstairs.

The latest example of her number two that I’ve seen was firmer than that late night deposit. I haven’t seen anything that I can prove is hers since, so either she is much improved and making it to the litter-boxes, or she is holding it all inside. Since she didn’t do that Saturday night, and her behaviour now is back to normal, I think she is doing well with regards to litter-boxes again. I of course forgive her the missing of the litter-box (by about fifty feet and a house storey) because everyone is under the weather now and then.

She was enjoying the warm sunshine in these pictures, sniffing the air at the window at first, then retreating to the bed for a snooze. Thank you to all those who wished her well during her recent illness.


  1. Awww, Tungsten...We're glad she seems to be doing better. We do recommend the use of probiotics when on antibiotics, though (whether human or cat). A little FortiFlora or something similar (and less costly) can do the trick. Continued purrs for her. That last photo is especially lovely, btw.

    Oh, and our human says that she feels the same way today that she did yesterday. No wine...just lots of whine! :-D

  2. Good to hear that she feels just a bit better.
    My 14 yr old cat, Ally, has a terrible time with arthritis so he sometimes doesn't make his deposit in the box. Very close to it though.
    My purr gang was young and are now getting older.

  3. Terrific news for Tungsten and you too! (even with the misplaced deposit)

    She's such a tiny little girl, and an orange tabby....absolutely adorable!

  4. Glad she is doing better, she is so sweet in her photos. Was wondering how she was getting along.

  5. I am glad Tungsten is feeling better. Yes antibiotics are notorious for causing liquid poops, animal and human alike.

  6. Yay *Timmy does the happy dance*
