Monida's musings

Purrs please

Hi friends -

I was wondering if you could spare a couple of purrs for me. I have to go to the vet tomorrow. :( Mom says I'm not eating enough or being playful enough for her liking. *Humph* First she puts me on a diet and then she says I'm not eating enough. Humans are never happy. I'll let you know how things go tomorrow.

From mom -

I've noticed over the past week that Monida has been eating less and less. In a 24-hour span yesterday, she ate maybe 1/6 of the food she's supposed to eat. This morning I couldn't even get her to eat wet food, and she LOVES wet food. She hasn't been playing much either and has been sleeping a lot more. I wouldn't call her lethargic, but almost like she's depressed. Anyway, I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow. Hopefully everything is ok, and it's just the heat that's bothering her, though I'm skeptical that's it. I'll let you know how it all goes. I'm already bracing myself for the "She's fat" lecture. *sigh*

Thanks friends!

Monida, we are sending lots and lots of purrs. Maybe if you start eating right now and chasing some mousies you can still avoid going to the dredded vet. Hope you come away with answers and feeling lots better.

Purrs and hugs,

Purrs that everything checks out with you. Prepare to have your dignity assaulted at the tortury and possible theft of your precious fluids.

Your Mom is doing what is best for you and no one loves you more or knows you better than she does.

Oh boy! You're doing the right thing. A depressed kitty who isn't eating is not good. It may not be anything but you're doing the best thing by making sure it isn't. Purrs big time for you my little sweatpea!!!

Thank you friends!! I can already tell your purrs are working! Today when mom got home from work I was being very playful and acting happy. She says I still have to go to the vet though because I'm still not eating a lot. *Sigh* I tried to take your advice Mietzi! Back to chasing bugs!
