I've been sneezing for a few days and yesterday and last night it got really bad. I sneezed so hard that I hit my chin on a rock in the abandoned aquarium that Sammy and I sleep in. It looked more painful than it actually was, but I loved the doting I got from Mommy and the Ball Guy.
Mommy didn't sleep because she was so worried about my sniffles. As soon as the vet opened this morning she called and got an appointment for me to go in. The vet was very kind (although I didn't like that she pulled me out of my carrier and put that pointy thing in my behind!!). She told Mommy that I had a URI and it probably just flared up from stress. She said I probably caught it when I was on my own as a kitten or from my mother and that it is a recurrent thing. The vet wants to wait until Monday to see if I can fight the infection off myself but if it continues to get worse, I'll have to take antibiotics. I'm eating well and have no fever but I'm not as active as I usually am. I just feel yucky! There was also a little bit of an infection in my left eye that Mommy got cream for to treat it. I'll be fine soon but Mommy needs to take a pill; a chill pill! She worries too much about me although I can't say I hate the attention ;).
We got an awesome award from our buds Franklin, Dobby and Tasha and Mickey, Georgia and Tillie and we're really so thankful! We're going to post about it tomorrow because Mommy looks like she ran a marathon and I am tired too so we're going to take a cat nap. Poor Samson will have to find something to do while we snooze because he feels fine!
P.S. Mommy wanted me to ask about something and I almost forgot. The vet recommended a nutritional supplement called Viralys which is L-Lysine HCI that is supposed to boost my immune system. She bought the gel but wants to read about it first (she doesn't let us take anything without knowing about it first). She wanted me to ask if anyone else is taking it or has heard of it. She'd greatly appreciate any feedback :)
