Belated Brother Update

Well Book got his teeth cleaning and while closely looking at his teeth, the Doctor figured that we have been misjudging Brother. He said that considering the evidence he saw with the tooth yuckiness along with Brother's bad ticker progression equals he is OLDER than we thought.

So rather than being like 6 this upcoming birthday he could be as old as 8 or so on his birthday! I already don't understand time, so my kitty mind is blown on how he can age in just one trip to the vee ee tee.

He ended up loosing 1 tooth -- it apparently crumbled and Doc had to free it the rest of the way.

Mommi has continued to try to administer his medicine, but there is a two-fold problem.  Mommi doesn't see Book as often as me. Book is lazy. He sleeps most of the day -- the Mommies say that is normal cat behavior. And he does this usually in rooms where Mommi isn't at. So the first "fold" is "outta sight, outta mind" translation: "Oops, forgot another dose!" followed by curse words.

The second fold is the one we all already know -- he puts up a fight for medication takings.

So far the best success which hasn't had a chance to be duplicated yet is when Mommi tried using 1/2 a ml of water to his crushed pill and use the syringe to shoot it in his mouth.
May the catnip always be plentiful and the string never fray,

  1. Concats on the award! As for Book and his medication - you could try what's working for me right now and was recommended by a lot of my kitty cat blog buddies......sweet potato baby food. That's right - Mom crushes my pill up then mixes in the sweet potato baby food and I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I eat the whole thing!
