One down three to go


*Sigh* It seems one family member out of my tiny little family is always sick. First it was the hubby followed by Lilly the “big cat”. Yesterday we noticed that now that the two of them have recovered it is “the little one’s” turn to be ill. We may as well become regulars at the Vet. Maybe I should start asking for discount or a bonus card. Free goodies to be had include: a free temperature taking (anally), a free mouth and throat examination, a free flea treatment, a piece of cat food or a free shot. Yipeeeeh

Okay I realize that this isn’t funny and God knows I love those furry little creatures. No not the hubby – I do love him very much but thankfully he’s not furry. Soon comes the day that we will spend most of our spare time either at the Vet’s office or working to pay for the Vet bill.

So first thing this morning I called the Vet to get an appointment. I hope Maunzerl get’s over her cold as fast as Lilly did. When she sneezes it sounds as though someone squeezed a rubber duck. It is hilarious. Once again I realize this isn’t something I should poke fun at but I am well aware of the fact that my little sweetheart is sick and it will be taken care of asap. It does sound funny though. If we weren’t too lazy to buy a firewire cable we might be able to film it and put the video up here. For now you will have to believe my eyewitness account though.

Please wish her well for her second doctor’s visit today and keep your fingers crossed that everything will go well. She hates going in the car unlike Lilly, who seems impartial and is driven anywhere without complaints. Bringing the little one will be a fight.

Get well soon to Maunzerl! It's always something, isn't it? Sending healthy vibes all the way from the USA to Deutschland...

Poor little thing! I hope Maunzerl feels better soon...

(And your idea about the bonus card IS kind of funny!)

I've never taken my dog to the vet for a cold.

In fact, I can't honestly say that our Eddie has ever even had a cold, and if he did, I didn't notice.

...it's cheaper my way.

Poor little kitty. Ha. I also never take my cats to the vet for a cold. I probably wouldn't even notice if they had one!

Thanks everyone. The reason we take them to the Vet is because Lilly is an outdoor cat and Maunzerl stays inside. Although Maunzerl is still very young and had her shots but a certain form of that cold can end deadly for cats if it's being left untreated. And you really could not miss that constant sneezing. She's sneezing 8-10 times in a row every 5 minutes and her left eye is watery. So we thought we wouldn't take any chances and take her to the Vet.

I'm sorry to hear that - sick animals can be difficult to handle :-( I hope she gets better soon with minimal vet time!
