we're back

Excuse my long absence from blogging (although I can tell that most of you gentle readers just go straight to Mike's "boring words" anyway). I have been tending to . . .

Joliet Jake.

Jake came home from neutering on Tuesday. He sneezed more and more every day until, on Friday, I took him to the vet. He was very well-behaved, albeit very noisy, until he had to have his temperature taken (hint: cats don't hold things under their tongues very well). The final verdict was that Jake has a cold. He wants to be held pretty much constantly, much like me when I have a cold, and he's starting to get a little stir-crazy, since he wants to run around and play but knows it will only make him start sneezing.

We have been feeding Jake chicken broth and wet food so that he can take plenty of fluids. The next step is Pedia-Lyte, recommended by my friendly vet.

Does anybody know how to teach a cat to blow his nose?

And here's a picture of Jake, just when he figured out how, exactly, one takes the temperature of a cat.

"You're sticking that thermometer WHERE?!?"
