Poor Little Dude...


"Really, do you always need to follow me around with that thing? Go 'way..."

Poor little Dude... Atticus has just returned from an overnighter at the V-E-T.

And he's not a happy camper. Suffice it to say peeing in the box...wasn't happening. He has problems with crystals, this one probably left over from a bad bout he had in the winter. And he's had a bad kidney infection, so at the first *ahem* sign of straining, he goes to the V-E-T. And getting a 20lbs male cat into the carrier? Think about it.

Being all male-kitty, he never shows his Mom when he's in pain... :( So, Iwatch him like a hawk.

He's home now, and all is forgiven. Mae, after moping around with him not being around, hissed at him and batted at his head, thanks to his funny Woodbine Animal Clinic smells. Poor guy, just can't catch a break these days...

So, not much in the way of knitting these last few days. Although I am pleased to report that I am 6cm away from starting the gusset on Western Seas! And, once that begins, it'a mere 32 rows to the underarm! Good times.

Now if you'll excuse me Atticus would like to lift him to the couch and feed him popcorn and Havarti cheese.

Oy, poor little Atticus! It's always a big drama over here as well when our little one has to go to the vet, but heaven knows it can't be helped! I do hope your furry guy will be doing much better very soon - give him a big hug from me, please!

Poor baby! and poor you for having to shoe-horn him into a carrier and take him to *that place*. I hope all is better now.

Hey Bridge- Poor little fellow- much be painful.
However did you manage to get him there? I have enough trouble with a 22lb Chow in his carrier- in the car.

Poor Atticus! It's for the best. Don't they hate it when you take their picture? Hezekiah is starting to get surly about it.

So close to the gusset! I think.

I hope that the Havarti is properly chilled. Or warmed, as the case may be.

Poor Atticus!! Chaos has problems with crystals, too, so the same deal here - hawkeyed watching for litterbox irregularities. I'm glad Atticus is home and doing well!

Poor Atticus baby. Hopefully there won't be any more problems. Meems sends get-well noogies to Atticus.

What are you feeding Atticus? Pennsyl used to have that problem until he was put on Friskies Special Diet.

that is a B-I-G kitty. Hope he's better soon.

Poor little guy. Or should I say big guy? I like the picture of him ignoring you. Our cat Fritz has the same issues occasionally. The symptoms are also the same and usually involves the bathtub. Eeewwww. Hope he is feeling better. You must be a great cat mom. :0)
