not feeling good

Mom said she's gonna start crying pretty soon if me and Lacey don't start eating better. It's been furry hot here and even with the a/c, me and Lacey feel yuckery and have not been eating much at all. Even cousin Midnight is doing the same thing. Mom keeps opening cans and we just don't want much. Today I dry heaved and mom had to give me a pepcid cause I didn't have much in my tummy! Ugh. It's definitely cause of the heat but she's getting nervous now. A few days she understands but she can't handle more than that. Once you've had a kitty that stopped eating and made themselves so sick they died, I guess you get furry upset at stuff like this.

Please purr we feel better soon and mommy doesn't cry about us! I don't want to make her cry. I don't mean to, I really don't!

OK Finney - you listen to me buddy! You need to start eating, pronto! If my mom's gonna force me to eat that grain-free nonsense, you've got to eat it too!

MOL Monida! See sweetie? you aren't the only kitty barfing lately! Thanks Tink. Mom said she's through fooling around and gave us some more B12! It might make us have more energy enough to drive her crazy but she said it's worth it if it makes us eat!!! There are 5 cans in the fridge right now that have been opened and we couldn't care less. She did take some Purebites and crumble them up on top of our Fancy Feast and we did eat some more. She's got a million tricks up her sleeve.

It's hot here too but so far we've not stopped eating. In fact Mom says it's like feeding a couple of teenage boys. We like Fancy Feast Classic from your Mom's list even better than the more expensive brands. Mom says OK, kitties; whatever it takes. Guess some of the shelter pets may be getting some very good quality food. Very little gets wasted in this house.

That's what she's been giving us Tia. Except we don't want anything at all but the fish flavored ones and we don't even eat it all. Sigh. Poor mommy! She'll keep trying and believe me, she even gave us some dry Merrick B.G. But it's cousin Midnight's food and she can't keep taking it from her. No money until Friday either. After that she'll get us our own bag for days like this. We usually only eat that in the summer like this, I don't know why. At least it doesn't dry up easily with the a/c and fans on.

Thanks Pumpkin! I'm sorry you're not eating much either but at least it's good to know it's not only us. That's why she figured it really is the heat even with the a/c on it's like our bodies are still not adjusting as fast as it got hot out!

Now listen up, Finn. You and Lacey are two purrfectly healthy kittehs. There's no reason for you to stop eating except for the horrific heat and humidity you've been having. I could see it in your eyes when your Mommy posted those pics yesterday of you guys sweltering in the heat ~ please feel better soon so Mom won't worry about you!

Oh nose! Finney you can't do that to your poor mommy! You have to start eating Mr! Don't make me come over there and smakey paw you! Ok... I wouldn't do that to you cause you don't feel good, but you've got to start eating. If River can make it through a CA summer on the streets (and he did poor guy) You can make it through a New England heat wave, please??? Maybe your mommy should be playing the squirt bottle game with you and some nice cool water... that might help.

C'mon Finney, you gotta eat! Mom knows how it is to have all those opened cans when we aren't feeling well! I bet your momma has some tricks up her sleeve and you'll have your Finney appetite right back. When it's so hot we just don't feel great and sometimes we're just not that interested in food. It's been really hot and humid for us today also. What's the deal - it's May! I'm purring for you and your mom! It's time to eat, buddy!

How do you feel about pouch or canned tuna? Sometimes I get a treat of it from Mom. Even if I won't eat my other food, sometimes I will eat that. I have to be feeling really ill not to eat some tuna! :)

Finney-----summer has just begun to show its hot head....You need to eat to keep up your strength...perhaps some treats and real turkey will help....I don't have much of an appetite and worry my mistress too....do you think that it keeps them on their toes.....I do.....I just want to remind her that she better take the best care of me....I am the princess and want to be treated as such....but don't worry them too much...ok?

We haven't been eating as much either the past day or two since the heat came on suddenly. We still eat our dry food, though. Mama is wondering if we've got some kind of pact with my feral Dad out there. He comes to see us alot, hanging around outside the cattery. Then he goes around the side of the house to eat our leftover wet food that Mama puts down on a plate! He's eating REAL good, let me tell ya! I'm with the others - eat treats, dry or otherwise. Just eat!!!

There was a time a few years ago when I wouldn't eat anything at all. That's when Meowmy started to give me shrimp. *rolls from side to side with happiness just thinking about shrimp* Meowmy gets the frozen bags of already cooked shrimp. I like the extra large or jumbo the best. She takes out 4 or 5 at a time, puts them in a little bowl, and defrosts them in the microwave. Then she breaks one up making sure that it's not too hot inside. Usually, it's still pretty cold, but you have to be real careful because sometimes there's a real hot spot in the middle. Yummy! Then she fills the bowl with enough water to cover the rest of the shrimps and keeps them in the fridge. It's nice to have a real cold and delicious treat in the summer - and all year long. Funny thing is... I don't like lobster or clams - just shrimp, shrimp, wonderful shrimp. I hope you eat something soon, dude. Try shrimp!

Finney! Buddy, what is up with not eating? I'm sure your mom has tried everything. Have her get you some fancy feast, some of it is pretty stinky! Oh and make sure you don't have any boogies in your nose. I had boogies for the longest time and couldn't smell my food! Hope you feel better soon and start eating!

Aww Finney, I'm sorry the heat is making you and Lacey feel yucky. I'm the same way, I always lose my appetite when the temperature's too high. Just make sure you eat a little bit here and there. Your momma loves you and Lacey so much and worries when you don't feel good so let's not give her anything to worry about, okay?

Purrs for your tummies to feel better!

Love,
Sally Maria

Hope it cools down so you both start eating again! I've been known to lay in the bath tub to cool off. It's the best way to cool off.

Rose likes to sit in front of the fan and let the cool air blow on her.

Hi Lacey and Finney,
I don't stop eating, and always want more, but even in this heat, with the AC on and all, I don't want as much as usual. Have you tried chicken?
Purred by: Bibi (Catster Member)

Hope you and your fur pals are all better. My tummy gets yucky in the heat too. Even big Meep didn't each much until it cooled off late last night. Today and Thursday and Friday are supposed to be better so maybe you will eat again very very soon.

Hi everybody! I'm only gonna be on here a second cause now with everything else, mom is having computer problems. She's ready to scream! me and Lacey did eat some FF last night and this morning and a little bit of Merrick kibble about an hour ago. I'm still super grouchy though so she's keeping an eye on me. She's madder than I am right now though cause of the compuper issues and other stupid daily stuff gone wrong! Blah. I'll pop in a little bit later for sure and let you know how it's going. Thanks for being here for us guys and thanks for all the nice rosies and POTP and stuff! We love you!

We're purring for you to keep eating and to start feeling better. The food provider didn't think about how hot weather could affect us kitties, she may have to think about seriously getting an air conditioner this year.

Don't stop eating!! If you do your mommy may have to take you to the scary vet where you'll get poked and prodded. feel better!

Gosh what a day for my poor meowmy! On the plus side we've been eating a little more. Today was a nicer day and after tomorrow it's supposed to be in the 70s for awhile. My poor mommy had to reformat her computer and now she's got to put everything back in it! she's not having fun. Her whole day was spent in here doing that stuff and it was furry nice out, she wanted to be in the garden.

Thanks everyone for all the purrs and rosies and stuff. You are are so pawsome! Those purrs are miracle workers! So far so good. Don't stop just yet though, we're not completely feeling better. But going in that direction. Besides, we have to be! Tomorrow is Gumpy's birfday pawty! We wouldn't miss that for anything!

Finn, how many fans do you guys have? In the summer to cut down on the power bill, they put the ac on 73 and put fans at the vents to push the cool air around more. Maybe sense they like sitting in the bathroom with the ac blowing on them you can max. that with a fan. Not the tail killing kind, the stand up new fans like you can get at walmart.

Sorry your having computer problems.

May 31st 2011 at 6:46 pm

Finney, I was just gonna come over with a can of Fancy Feast but I see your Mom has tried that already. Maybe the saucy kind of FF? I know it's not the healthiest but once you lick the sauce you might eat the meat pieces too. Can your Mom put you in a bathroom with your food and leave you there for maybe 15 minutes or so and see if you eat? No, it's not cruel, you'll get out eventually. Also we don't like having the AC set too cold, but we have short fur. Ours is at 77 right now.

Please feel better! You and Lacey both. We are purring and praying.

I'm glad you're feeling a little better Finney! Wow, it sounds like a rough day for your meowmy! That 'puter stuff can be the worst. You guys have to come to my birfday pawty - it wouldn't be the same without you! Yesterday and today were really hot and humid here too, and when it's so hot we just don't feel like ourselves. It shouldn't be so hot in May. We have window a/c and it cools things down, but they are so noisy that it's unnerving. It is going to get cooler the rest of the week for us, too.

Keep chowing down, buddy! We love you!

Finney, Sorry we missed out on this news... you know how it goes...it's the meowmy's fault!!! Anywho, my sisfur and I are kind of in the same boat. It could just be the sudden heat. My sisfur always has major hairball issues when it gets so hot out and she doesn't like to eat much because she always gets super yacky, but my meowmy noticed that if she furminates her at least once a week, extra furries gets removed, she probably stays cooler and eats a little better. You have a great head of fur on you so maybe the furmination will help you cool off and chillax better? Lots of purries that you guys stay cool and EAT! :-) Loves, Abby & Alexis (the furminated)

Hi guys! We are both eating better especially now that today is nice and cool. It's like night and day from yesterday. Yesterday felt like late July/early August and today felt like late Sept./early Oct. CRAZY! The only problem now is I'm a little backed up. I get that way when I don't eat regular so mommy's been giving me Miralax. I've gone enough that she don't need to take me to the vet or nothin' but she wants a real good big giant Finney poopy!! MOL. Mietzi you should have come ofur anyways, we coulda had a FF pawty! You all coulda came over! Wouldn't my meowmy and grandpawents be surprised to see all deez kitties in da house! MOL

We are having the same kind of weather. Yesterday it was in the 92 today it is barely 55 and very windy! Started last night when we lost power right in the middle of my Unkie G's

Glad to hear that you and Lacy are eating. Not eating is not funny for us, eh?
I wish we could come over to visit!
Anyway, going back to the party! Have a great big poopy soon,
