Fluid Fail!

Apparently I'm not good like Calvin or Callie (Mawmee and Daddy's first cat). They both sat quietly on Daddy's lap when they got their fluids.

Not me. I'm a wigglebutt! They tried three times to give me fluids yesterday. First I was on Mawmee's lap, then on Daddy's lap, and then again on Mawmee's lap.

They tried the big needle that the vet place gave us because the fluids go in faster. Fail.

They tried a smaller needle from supplies we had left over from Calvin. Fail.

They tried warming up the fluids a little bit so it wouldn't feel so cold going under my skin. Fail.

Today, they are taking me to the vet so one of the vet techs can give me fluids, and they can watch to see how to give fluids to a wigglebutt!

Mawmee bought some yummy foods for me because I'm getting bored with Fancy Feast. The important thing is for me to eat, so I'm getting chicken Tiki sprinkled on top of my food. It is pretty good stuff.

Thanks for the continued support and purrs. Please purr that my parents can figure out how to give me fluids so I'll feel better!

Sure hope your appetite improves and that your pawrents will learn the techniques needed to get the fluids in you...maybe you need to be wrapped up in a towel, like a burrito, to help you be still whilst those fluids are going into your body.

Dear Mr. Wigglebutt,
If you need any food let us know. Our local store here has all the good and hard to find stuff. They even have Fussie Cat now. The chicken is moist and yummy.

Violet quit being a wiggly kitteh. You need your fluids so Newmie can record the progrees of your poopies..and keep eating! I finaly ate better last nite 'cause I had to leave hairballs everywhere. Maybe that's what you have a huge hairball!

Violet, you need to sit still so the fluids can make you feel better! Hoping you keep eating your Tiki!!

Dear Violet;
We're purring for you, it's hard giving fluids to a Wigglebutt, but we know your Mommy & Daddy will get the hang of it, once when our Mom & Dad were giving fluids to Sam, it went all over the kitchen window, yikes, hope you like your Tiki. Purrs!

Violet I am sure you are a cute wigglebutt but your pawrents probably don't appreciated it during fluids!

What worked for me was for me to be on a surface that I would feel secure and stable on. My pawrents used an ottoman. (But you could use anything in your house. Maybe even the top of your Newmans house on the highest flat level.) I was on top of the ottoman on top of a comfy blankie, Mom held me still and dad did the fluids. You could try that instead of being on someone's lap.

I am so glad to hear you are eating some yummy foods!

I know how hard getting fluids is Violet! Mom gives me lots of love, she has me on the counter laying on a nice warm fuzzy blanket...once the needle is in she pets me, scritches my chin and side of my head all the while telling me I am a good girl...most of the time I sit there with no problems, but sometimes I get antzie...then as soon as I am done I get can food and all I want too...

Hang in there Violet it isn't that bad especially if you don't wiggle that way it is will be done sooner and less hassle...

hugs and purring for you

Meowmy and I are continuing to purr for you! We are also purring for your parents that they can figure out how to give you your fluids. Also, you can never go wrong with a little Chicken Tiki. I love that stuff myself!
