Bella Update

Bella here.

Well I'm home.  I'm still feeling crappy (pardon the pun) and not eating on my own, but Mommy just couldn't leave me at the vet.  I was too miserable and not improving much.  She thinks I'll get better easier with her syringe-feeding me at regular intervals at home.  I think she's right, because being in that cage made me feel like I was back at the shelter before I got adopted.  When Mommy came to get me today, I perked right up.  I was so relieved and happy that she came back for me.  If I don't improve by Monday morning, I will have to go back for more IV fluids so Mommy is doing all she can to make sure I get better before then.   


Thank you, ML, for my graphic and to everyone for your purrs.  I know it will help to make me feel much better sooner.



Bella

Update Sunday afternoon:  The Mommy here.  Bella ate a little bit on her own!  She isn't drooling as much and she looks like she feels much better.  She is still under the weather but it looks like she's well on her way to feeling better.  Thank you for all the purrs!

Oh Bella! We heard you had been feeling poorly with a stinky old bug and we dropped by to leave you love and rumbly purrs to help you feel better. Don't blame you hating being at the vets, having your Mum nurse you at home is much nicer.

Hope you feel better soon and the bug, er buggers off!

Lots of kitties don't do well at the vet, so I am glad your human brought you home, Bella! I am sending your lots of purrs so you will get better and not have to get more IV fluids!

Fuzzy Tales said...

Aw, Bella, we certainly hope you start eating on your own soon and that you get better quickly, now that you're home.

It's definitely a virus, nothing else going on (like IBD, etc)?

Purrs and purrayers from us, sweetie!

Oh Bella, we are so glad you got to come home. What a smart Mommy you have and we are sending tons and tons of purrs to you so that you will get all better really soon. We have instructed the donkeys to get their hooves crossed for you. Get better you pretty girl.

Bella we are sending you our very best healing purrs and hope you feel 100% soon. We are sure you will improve faster at home where you are happy and loves so very much.

CCL Wendy said...

Oh Bella! I'm so sad to hear that you're not well. I think your Mommy is doing the right thing, though, because if you're stressed, it's harder on your immune system.

We're all purring very hard for you, here, sweetie! Dante, Dylan, Domino and me.

I'm sure Mommy's loving ministrations will go a long way to making you feel better, too.

Get well soon, love.

Glad your home Bella! You'll feel better there for sure!

I gave Fin IV fluids at home and it wasn't too hard. I felt worse about it than she did.

Bella, we're sending you many purrs! We are sure it's much better at home than at the vets. We hope you stay hydrated and feel much better soon.

Love from Franklin, Tasha, and Dobby

P.S. Our mom had to learn to give subcutaneous (under the skin, not IV) fluids to Dobby once when he was sick - it was easier than she thought. Not sure if that would help?
