Cammie was sick on Monday. She was fine Sunday evening but I knew immediately upon waking the next morning that she was out of sorts. She remained in her heated cat-bed, and did not get up to stroll about for her morning stretch as she usually does; had no interest in food or water, and didn’t get up on my bed to snooze before I left for work. She was no better when I came home and had thrown up at some point during the day.
I didn’t think this was one of her usual episodes, which I always ascribe to eating something, however small, to which she is allergic, which is almost everything. She had not thrown up during the night but, rather, later during the day - her vomiting usually comes sooner in such an episode - nor did she try to eat but not feel like actually eating. There was something that suggested another cause, but I thought of making a veterinary appointment for her nonetheless. Considering the current restrictions on social interaction, I was not looking forward to that.
Tuesday morning, I right away noticed a change in the princess. She was more alert, and she was ready to eat. She had a light breakfast, but it was food in her tummy, and when I came home in the afternoon, I saw that she had eaten some of her hard-food and drunk some water. She had not thrown up. That evening, she had a good dinner.
Today, before I left for work again, Cammie ate some food, but not a great deal. She was a little worse than Tuesday but still better than Monday.
This may be just a passing bug, a pale reflection of what the human world is experiencing, perhaps. It doesn’t have all the symptoms of her usual allergic reaction, and it has some that such an episode does not bring. Whatever the matter, the way Cammie was feeling on Monday took another year off my life. I hope she recovers swiftly and well enough to put a few months back on.
Oh John, I truly hope this is a passing episode and Cammie will be feeling better soon. It has been a horrid year, I can only offer my hope that it won't get worse.ReplyDelete
Here's hoping that Cammie recovers nicely, and you'll wipe the sweat from you brow. Keep us informed, please.ReplyDelete
And yes, CB has a rounder, larger torso than Manny who is slim, but Manny's head is bigger than CB's, according to The Hubby.
Poor Cammie, may she have a speedy recovery from whatever's ailing her.ReplyDelete
Could she have caught Renn's cold?
Unfortunately, I don't think rent's cold is to blame...Delete
Poor Cammie and poor John! Here's hoping Cammie gets well quickly! Please keep us posted.ReplyDelete

Our elder dog is starting to fail. It's too soon after losing Lucy. So I've been making her days as enjoyable as I can.
Best healing wishes to your princess!
I'm sorry to read this about your dog. What is his name?Delete
We talk about cats being stressed. I am guessing just what stressReplyDelete
you feel now with Cammie and having to go to work and wondering if
it is a safe place to go to the vet! Hope she comes around without
the dr. visit.
You really nailed it with that statement on the stress of a sick cat especially in these times. My friend just related his experience of taking his cat to the vet which was an ordeal of waiting in his car, passing the carrier to techs in protective garb, on and on, then speaking with the vet over the phone. Thank goodness she is on the mend and we wish her and you all wellReplyDelete
