GOOD NEWS!

While I have been away relaxing with my friends in Bora Bora the human has been in touch with the vet. It turns out that I have high levels of bacteria in my intestines which is preventing me from absorbing the nutrients from my food. This is probably the cause of my weight loss and the terrible state that my fur is in. I will be put on three different medications which SHOULD take care of the problem. I will go to the vet's in a month from now to see if the meds are working their magic.

Due to personal reasons my human has been neglecting our blog and email account. During this time Ollie and I have missed our friends dearly. It really warms our hearts to know that you all still think about us and check in on in spite of our absences in the blog world. Once I am feeling better I will have to give my human a kick in the pants in an effort to get her back to working on our blog.


To our friends old and new, thank you for stopping by to check in on me. Your thoughts, prayers, and kind comments mean the world to all of us.
Love,
Opus

We are still purring for Opus' full recovery. Our human said to tell you that when we need meds, she crushes our pills and mixes them with babyfood meat (only strained meats -- Gerber) and sucks the mixture up in a medicine syringe and gives it to us. Boy, now that I know we've been duped into taking our meds all this time, I may have to put up a bit of a fight! Seriously, we'll eat anything if you put it in babyfood meats!

Karen Jo said...

I hear that you aren't taking your meds like you are supposed to, Opus. You really need to take them. I know all about how nasty meds can be and I fight them sometimes, but I eventually take them all. You need to follow my example, though I am sure that your human would be glad to see you forego the fighting part. Get well soon!

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

We hear Opus needs more purrs to encourage him in taking his medicine. We thought we'd let yoo know we are PURRING like mad for him.
Get well soon Opus, we love yoo.

Meowers from Missouri said...

hello, dear boy--we hopes you has been dutiful takin' yer meddysins so you kin get mo' bettah. an' we hopes your human's distractions are fadin' away;-)

purrs,

You two look so comfy and so pretty. I am happy for the good news but sad you have to take medicine. I wish you all the luck and hope you improve soon. My name is Margaret and I am from the state of Michigan in America, I am glad to make your acquaintance.

Kwee Cats said...

Hi! We are new friends, and we will be delighted to hear from you whenever we do! Especially when you have good news like this. We are so glad you are feeling better and have the medicine now.
(((hugs)))

ArtemisiaFSS said...

We heard you were being difficult about taking your medicine. (Sigh) Scylla is applauding your rebellion but there is a reason we call her Scyllie (Silly). The rest of us wiser kitties thinks you should be a good boy and take your medicine so you can get well faster. Fenris has offered to come hold you down for you Mom if you don't cooperate. Don't worry he is very gentle with us cats.

Gracie =^o.o^= said...

I held my breath until the mom let me visit you so she gave in to me saying blue wasn't a good color for me.
Oh what fun we all had in Bora Bora. I am so glad that we had that time together. This will be an annual event. Next year maybe we will have a voting to see where we will all go when we dump the humans next summer.
Keep up the good work and take your meds when your human has to give them to you. Sending purrs and good thoughts to you.
Boy do I miss you. When can you come and visit?

The Lee County Clowder said...

Hey, Opus. We hear you're fighting the medisons your beans are trying to give you. Quit that, OK? You won't get better otherwize.

To the beans - If Opus really is keeping you from treating him, check with the V*T, see if you can get the meds into him via his ears/skin. Kinda messy, but it works.

Sweet Purrfections and Angel Praline said...

I truly hope those medications work for you.

Asta said...

ArtemisiaFSS said...

Opus, Gracie let us know you are still having problems. We are purring for you buddy. Hope they are able to find medication that works for you and you start to put some weight back on.

Our vet suggested pumpkin for digestion. Don't know if that would help you or not, but we guesses it wouldn't hurt to try it. Maybe like a teaspoon a day if you like it.

Junior and Orion said...

Opus, we understand you are still having some troubles. We are amping our purrs back up for you! Please eat and take your meds!

The Lee County Clowder said...

Purrrrrring that Opus is feeliong better by now.

Opus, dude, we are worried about you with all this vet talk. Get better.

Karen Jo said...

Just dropping by to see how you are doing. I hope that you are cooperating and taking your medicine. I know it's nasty and evil, but it will help you. I am taking my nasty once-a-month medicine now and I hate it, but I do take it and it is keeping me healthy.
