So I was couging. At furst, Meowmmy thought it was a furball. But she called the vet, and the tech told her to wait it out.

Meowm waited it out for about an hour until I started going into FITS of coughing. Dr. B agreed with Meowmmy -- it was no hairball.

As per USUAL...NO ONE bothered to consult with ME. And so she scooped me up and shoved me in the carrier and the next thing I knew...I was on the scale on that cold silver table at the vet's office!!!!

Meowm said she knew I was pretty sick because I was BEHAVING. Even when Dr. B CHOKED me. Yes, he did. HOw would you like that, furs? Some dude putting this cold medallian thingie on your chest and squeezing the furballs outta you? Not. Nice.

They took pictures of me, and Meowm was crying and pacing. I wasn't sure why. She doesn't cry and pace when she takes pics of me at home.

Oh, and they stuck me with needles, too!!!! FOUR of them!!!

The pictures told The Choker that I have a slightly large heart. And they wanted to check me for Cardiomyopathy.

The Choker did tell Meowm that my heart might be a little big because I'm a big kitty. But Meowm said all along that it's just a little big because there's so much love in it.

I did stop coughing -- I think he choked it out of me. Or maybe it was those needles in my butt...

But she took me back again YESTERDAY...and you are NOT going to BELIEVE what horrors they inflicted upon me...


And then they covered me in GOOP, and took a video of me!

I was just MORTIFIED...and all I wanted to do was CLEAN MYSELF when I got home. It was pretty horrible.

BUT...Meowm said there was some good news. Yesterday, The Choker said that my lungs weren't naerly as congested as they were on Saturday, and that the medicine in those needle thingies worked.

Today, the Cardiologist said that I do NOT have cardiomyopathy. THey're all in agreement that it's a lower respiratory infection. And Meowm has to monitor me for coughing. If that starts again...I have to go back ALL OVer AGAIN and get some kind of tracheal wash. It doesn't sound good.

But I am feeling so much better. And Meowm was right all along. I just have a big heart because there's so much love in it!

Oh boy, it was scary reading your diary.

I'm glad it not to serious.

Respiratory Infections can be nasty. I use to get a lot of them when I was a kitten, and the Dr. said I would have the problem for the rest of my life. So far I been doing well. Haven't had one in a long time.

We are Purring for you Coop to recovery quickly.

Oh yea, MEAN Chocker!

Hugs & Purrs,

Cardiomyopathy is a scary business, that's what caused a human (papa's) family member to have a "heart transplant." I'm so glad that you don't have that.
Sorry about the "nip slip" but... it's not like the other 5 were hanging out and grabbing air? right?

I'm really relieved to hear that your lungs are not as congested as they were. Let's keep that streak up !
