Update and Sunday Selfie

I haven't been able to settle and get comfortable so mum got her old furry dressing gown and made me a nest on the bed. When she wears it in the winter I like to get on her lap and make biscuits so she thought it might help me.

It worked. I was able to settle and get some good sleep.
I am hanging in there. I ate some food yesterday morning but then no more for the rest of the day. Through the night I was violently sick and kept wandering around. Mum and dad thought they would have to take me to the emergency vet but were afraid that I mightn't be coming home. They decided to wait and see what I was like this morning. Mum gave me my appetite stimulant early to see if I would eat, and I have now eaten a little bit of food. We are all hoping I won't be sick again. I am now out on the porch step to enjoy a bit of sunshine.

A lot of you asked for it, so here by popular request is mum getting my pee sample.

Why is my pee making a rattling noise, and whatever is mum doing back there?

Success!

Here is my selfie for the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head blog hop. It was taken about an hour ago and I had jumped up to ask mum for a cuddle. I may be getting very tired and frail, but I still enjoy my cuddles.

Flynn we are delighted you are getting Mum cuddles and hope they perk you up.
Little morsels of food sound good. BTW
we fight over our Mum's dressing gown too even if she's wearing it!
Take care.

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

your mom is very smart making you that bed.. and how great is it that you give pee so willingly.

your mom shouldn't be afraid of the eclinic. She make the decision who comes home, and they can give fluids and pain management that is very helpful.

the long lasting antibiotic can be helpful, but it can also get rid of some of the good bacteria in the gut. adding some probiotics can be a good thing, and the cat specific one fortifloria can entice some kitties to eat. your vet should have some or should know where you can get some..

Kitties Blue said...

Oh, the ignitnity of it all having to have photos of you peeing shared around the world. Glad your mum made up for it by making you a special bed. We really like your selfie. We got a twofer with both you and your mum being in it. Purrlease feel better soon. Sending love purrs and prayers. XO, Kitties Blue

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

We agree with Connie that fortiflora is good for kitties' tummies. Purring hard for you flynn! And the pee sample? Holy CAT! MOL!

Madi and Mom said...

Flynn my dear friend. I hope and purr by this writing you have been able to eat some more and are feeling better.
Please know you all remain in our hearts and prayers.
Hugs madi your bfff

I'm sorry to hear about Flynn and am sending prayers!

Flynn might be missing Eric, and sometimes, that's very hard on a pet's health. Maybe he's ready to be reunited w/ his brother.

Nerissa said...

What a great nest your mum made for you. Looks super comfy and comforting.

Flynn... You've gotta get better. You've just GOTTA. I'm sendin' healin' purrs your way and will keep on sendin' them for as long as you need them sent. They're extra-strong purrs. Extra-powerful for healin'.

Purrs,
Nissy

LP said...

Flynn, your Mama is so smart to think of the bathrobe...that will surely comfort you. We hope you keep eating sweetie. What a good boy to make it so easy for your Mom to collect a sample. We have a lot to learn from you over here! :)

What a smart idea your mom had to get out her blue fuzzy gown for you to snuggle into. I'm glad you felt well enough for snuggles and that lovely selfie today. Purrs for you to feel better.

Kari, Gran and us cats.

Teri and the cats of Curlz and Swirlz said...

Your pee looks nice and dark... that is good cuz kidney kitties with dilute urine tells you that the kidneys aren't working so good. We giggled at the rattling pee comment!

Kari said...

P.S. The Forti Flora feline supplement is very palatable and we think it tastes yummy when sprinkled on our food.

Ellen in Oregon said...

Eric - so sorry you had such a bad night. Your mom soft robe make a wonderful sleeping nest. The important thing is that your thyroid medicine is working & that you be able to eat well. Your mom is very tricky to be able to catch your pee for t that she was able to catch your pee. The cats here never would never let a human that close to us when we pee. We are sending purrs & headbutts that you start to feel better very soon Flynn.

Derby, Ducky said...

Glad you got out for some fresh air. Mum hopes she never has to follow us around to get a sample.

Continuing to purr for you.

That is one good pee action. Our mom usually has a very hard time if she has to take our sample. Good that youre getting some sun Flynn.

Laila and Minchie said...

Our mum is very impressed that your mum was able to get your pee sample so easily! Great selfie, too!

SuziQCat said...

Flynn, we are pleased that you are making some progress. Have your mom ask about some nausea meds...they can be injected and may help with the appetite too. Just a thought! Purring hard for you buddy.

Anonymous said...

Speaking as a former vet tech, Mom did really good there! Hope you are feeling better!

Just Me Pooh said...

Sweet Flynn you look so comfy all rolled up in your mom's dressing gown. We are glad you are eating at least a little bit but we sure hope you eat more and don't get sick. What a good boy you are to let your mom catch your pee like that, we don't know how that would work around our place. Keep enjoying the dressing gown and getting better. We are keeping the purrs and prayers going for you. Hugs and nose kisses Mumsy and Pooh

Caren Gittleman said...

Keep eating Flynn!!!!! I am hoping that maybe it was just a combination of the thyroid pill and the antibiotic that was making you sick? I know that even though I am a human I hate eating when I am on an antibiotic. We are purring and praying for you and sending much love!!! xoxoxo
