Tummy Tuesday and Update.

I haven't shown you my tummy for a while so I am giving you two tummy shots today.

That is mum's old furry dressing gown that I am laying on. She made me a nest from it when I was first ill and now it is my comfort bed and I am keeping it.
I am still only eating if I have appetite pills and eat better some days than others. I am looking brighter and happier and have even been for a short walk in the field by the garden. Dad carries me back though because I am still very weak.
I don't like all the nasty pills and injections but mum says I have to be brave because it is to make me better so I can go hunting mousies again one day.
When mum weighed me I had put 0.8 of a pound on in 4 days which is about half of what I had lost in 10 days. I am nearly 10 pounds now so have a long way to go to get back to my average of between 15 and 16 pounds but hopefully I am heading in the right direction now.

Flynn, it's great to hear that you're gaining weight again. It always takes longer to gain then to lose when you've been sick. Keep eating, buddy, and we'll keep purring for you.

It's been a tough week for gingers. You and Ducky will soldier on. Hope you and he hang in there and carry the ginger banner. So happy to hear you've gained weight and hope you'll feel like eating without the yucky medicine soon.

Good for the weight gain, Flynn. You know, I was once 15 lbs but now I am 10.5 lbs. Mom and Dad don't foresee me ever getting back to my youthful 15 lbs (also that was on an all kibble diet).

You look so adorable lying there like that on Mum's dressing gown. So good of her to give it to you.

Quill and Greyson said...

Fill that tummy up pal! Feel better!

Flynn, this is good news! Plus, we all enjoyed the belleh!

Kari said...

That tummy is the cutest thing ....snorgle, snorgle! And those little white back feeties are pretty cute too!
Answered prayers that you are feeling better. It's been a long illness for you, sweetheart, and it will take you some time to recover. That weight gain sounds marvelous! We kitties find it hard to gain and easy to loose...quite the opposite of our beans. You are as handsome as ever, love. We are keeping you in our prayers. We love you like you were our own. God bless you.

Katnip Lounge said...

I'm glad you are improving, Flynn, but I will be MUCH happier when you are back eating on your own!

Oh Flynn, I am so happy to hear you are doing better at gaining some weight back and eating, even if only with the help of pills. Keep going!

And you got to go to the field by the garden for a little walk! I am so pleased for you and your Mum and Dad.

Please do be very, very brave, Sweet Little Man, and keep fighting to eat and get well. I am praying for you and coming by often to see if there is a new post.

Much love,
Lily

So good to hear you are continuing to make strides in regaining your health Flynn. Thanks for showing your floofy tummy to cheer us up. You look adorable & very comfy on mom's dressing gown. Our mom has the softest chinelle robe that she wears on very cold mornings and we love to sit on her lap when she wears it. We keep hoping she will make a bed for us out of it. We hope you are able to go hunting mousies soon. Please try to eat better. Sending headbutts & purrs..

Oh Flynn I’d NEVER give you away. You mean so much to me. I know if you were feeling better you’d take ME to the dance and I thought I’d do something nice for Phoebe and she blew it out of proportion. I’m sorry.
