Bugsy on....Knuckles

Bugsy here.... This is me, yesterday.  Something strange happened...I heard HH say something to me on her way out the door, but I didn't pay attention.  Last time I do that!!!

I was in Knuckles' office (the cube), having a little nap time when HH mumbled something and then she was gone.  When I woke up, I realized that Knuckles was not there and his carrier was missing from the living room (HH leaves the carriers open in the living room. We like to sleep in them sometimes).  So I sniffed around, but I couldn't find Knuckles in any room. 

Now I must tell you the background here so you will understand my angst... Knuckles and I have never been apart.... never....! This is the first time. 

About an hour and a half later, they came back and OMC was I glad to see my brother.  HH opened the carrier and he hopped out. Well, turns out, HH had taken him to the lady who takes temperatures.... OH noes, not that!!!

Knuckles had been feeling under the weather... not jumping on me to tussle and not stealing my toys, and not jumping out at me from behind furniture and scaring the beeswax out of me, and not snuggling up when we both need a little comfort.... and not on bird tv patrol.  You get the picture.

Well, he's perked up a little from all that, but he's still acting under the weather, but no real symptoms, like limping or coughing or anything.  So, the temerature-taking lady doesn't know what's wrong, but she took some blood and gave him some fluids and he's back here where he belongs.  The temperature-taking lady will call today to let HH know what's going on.

I'll update you when I know more.   Thanks for listening....

Purring for Bugsy that it was just a "something" that he is mostly over. Going to the v-e-t is no fun.

Bugsy Here.... Thanks for the good wishes.... It's Knuckles who is under the weather. I was the one who was left home. No temperature taking for me...

Purrs for Knuckles that all is well. Sometimes we just feel a bit "off" for a couple of days, then are fine again. Maybe it's a bit of a kitty cold--if so, some Lysine might help. Or maybe it's a hairball coming?

Max the Quilt Cat said...

thanks.... I hope you're right that it's something easy peasy to fix.... That's for sure.

pawhugs, Max

I am reading these posts backwards. I am glad Knuckles is feeling better and that all the big tests came back normal. Hope things continue to improve and get back to normal.
