The Baboo Kitty Has Spoken

Today mommy picked me up and noticed I'm coughing and wheezing again. She called Daddy, told him that she is desperate for a new air purifier filter for me, and she's getting the scary zoom thing out of the corner. It makes alot of noise and goes around the room seeking something...mommy seems to hold it back, and it pulls fowrad as though it's going to get me. I hide as best I can. Mommy calls it the 'Hoover'. I don't's a scary thing. It hides in the corner quiet til mommy gets it mad by putting it's long tail in the electrical outlet. That would make me mad, too. Mommy just changed the blanket on the back of the sofa for me so it's less dusty. She's worried.

Is there anything else anyone can suggest for mommy to do to help me breathe a little better? Mommy nagged Daddy over the phone to let the Super know that the corner of the living room ceiling needs fixing. Mommy told Daddy a new filter for the air purifier is top priority! She's going to get that scary thing out now....oh, I better hide in case it gets me. And I'm not goin to the Vet! I'm not! I'm not!

Oh, and Mommy got some meat to cook..I begged for some but she said 'Ruffy, it's not time to make Dinner yet! You behave! Yes Mommy I always do!

Oh Ruffy - feel better!

Does your mom have any air fresheners around the house? When mom first brought me home, she had air fresheners plugged in, and they made me sneeze and cough so she got rid of them.

Stay away from that scary sucking thing! We have one here, and I hate it too!

Lots of orange tabbies like us have allergies, Ruffy. Mom thinks it must be genetically carried by whatever genes make us orange tabbies. Maybe you have some mold or dust mite allergies?

I get a quarter of a generic 10-mg Claritin tablet (loratadine) in a pill pocket each day.

Have your mom turn on the hot water in the shower.The bathroom will get all nice and steamy~that should help you breathe easier. You can stay in there 10 minutes at a time.
Helped me when I had a kitty cold a couple of years ago.
Hope you feel better!
Love and purrs,

wow we find that interesting about the orange tabbies Jasper... my eyes get all reddish in the spring, and they seem more sensitive to light than the other kitties. Hope you feel better Ruffy.
