Feeling Like A Kitten Again

RedditBlogger PostPinterestGoogle+Google GmailTwitterFacebookTumblrDeliciousWordPressShare

Well, Dobson was completely under the weather for a few days. He threw up 3 times over 4 days and had the runs too. Now as anyone knows, diarrhea AND vomit can be a deadly combination because it dehydrates the subject VERY quickly. And cats are notoriously dehydrated because they just don’t drink enough, which forces us to almost them into drinking.

Anyhow, during all this, Dobson’s mood was still pretty good. He wasn’t too happy about the whole situation, but he continued to bathe and drink (although not enough in my opinion!) and purr. Purring can be misleading though. Sometimes they purr because they’re happy, and other times it’s to comfort themselves.

So, there hadn’t been any kitty puke anywhere so we cooked Dobson some chicken and rice to settle his stomach. With a carrot blended in too:

Mmmm….so delish.

His mood today is a million times better with him hanging out in the dresser cubby:

Not only is he more active than before, it’s almost as if he’s “youthened” and returned to his 5 month old self. It’s been awhile since we played such games as “attack the feet” and “stalk the master”, but we played them all today.

Hide and Seek, anyone? Where can he be?

Finally, a rousing game of “Get the Rubber Egg”, which he usually wins since humans are just pawns and are only throwing the thing.
