Sick Part II

Gross content:
It has been a living Hell trying to take care of my humans these last couple weeks. Ed's been sick with the flu, Kim has had a fever, K has been generating snot like I've never seen and Syd, poor, poor Syd had something call her tonsils and adenoids taken out. Then Ed's flu got better but he came down with a sinus infection that moved to his right ear. Besides having temperatures of 104.5, today the little thing in his ear called the ear drum ruptured. He had blood and goo coming out of his ear. It was quite gross.

However, since Ed's a big human, I decided to focus my nursing abilities on Syd. Making sure she's comfortable, and warm. And eveyone knows that petting a cat lowers blood pressure and promotes healing, so I've spent every minute with her. She's doing a lot better, now, but still needs to take her pain medication which makes her kind of loopy. No other Cats are allowed on her but me. Except at bed time, which has always been first come, first served.

Turn Your Head and Cough

Why is it when humans get sick, they have to let everyone and thier mothers know that they don't feel well? When Cats get sick, we find a warm spot to lay in and keep to ourselves until we feel better.

This week has been just horrible...first Kim was sick last weekend, then K and Syd started getting the sniffles until Wednesday, when Syd had a melt down and ended up out of school on Thursday. K's been running around hacking and sniffling and spreading her germs everywhere (and AGAIN with the sleepless nights!) Just when things seemed to be clearing up this past weekend, Kim had a relapse. Finally, sometime during Sunday afternoon/evening, Ed crashed and is now sick.

The common trend with all of them (besides the actual sickness?) They all are (or have been) complaining, moaning, coughing, sneezing and generally making a disgusting racket. Just GO LAY DOWN for God's sake! Pay attention to what we Cats do. You'll feel better after a nap.

Yeah ... SO?

And just how is one supposed to accelerate healing?

Wound Licking sorry, they pulled the article which was about a coach that licked the wound of one of his players.

But seriously, I've tasted you humans and let me just say .... EWWWWW!

The Good and the Bad of Going Deaf

Good: Can't hear the mini-humans shrieking and crying
Bad: Can't hear the mini-humans coming up behind you and snatching you up.

Good: Can't hear pots and pans clanging around when Ed drops them on the floor ... again!
Bad: Can't hear Ed getting dinner bowls out

Good: Can't hear Ed yell at me because of my playing one of my Games
Bad: Can't hear Ed call me to sit on his lap

Good: Can't hear the vacuum cleaner
Bad: Vacuum cleaners are SNEAKY and will come up behind you when you don't expect it.

I'll Post Something Meaningful, soon, I Promise!

It's just been VERY hectic around here. Kim's parents stayed for the weekend which gave me two new laps to try and sneak on, and four more hands to try to convince to pick me up and give me pets. They left yesterday, so everybody was moping around the house and taking lots of naps.

I'll try to catch up later this week. I'll have a new "Games Cat's Play" for all you kitties out there to try.
