Sick Cat

Poor Boyfriend had a rough weekend. 


His big ol tabby, Archer, was being very weird and lethargic on Friday, so he brought him to the vet Saturday morning. 







Yep. We're not sure what's wrong with Archer. Luckily, he tested negative for all those awful F-diseases (FIP, FEV, etc etc.) He's still eating, so there wasn't too much the vets could do for him besides hydrate and let him go home. They think he's fighting off some kind of virus. Send him kitty well wishes and let us know your tips for keeping a feverish cat hydrated.

  1. It's terrible that cats can't tell us what is wrong or where it hurts. Hope he's feeling great again before too much more money is spent!

  2. It is horrible when a loved pet isn't well and we don't know what is wrong

  3. I don't know how to keep a cat hydrated. The first cat we adopted many years ago turned out to be quite sick when we brought him home. The vet didn't think he'd make it. We kept him warm and cozy and I fed him baby food meat on my finger. He recovered and lived a long and happy life.

    Love,
    Janie

  4. Awww. Get better Archer. I used to mix in some water with baby food if my cat was dehydrated. It smells strong so they usually will eat it even if their appetite is not the best.

  5. I have actually used Lactated Ringer's from our local hospital and a needle into the scruff for a slow drip re hydration. Fortunately, the cat tolerated it well and recovered.
