I am hoping and hoping and praying that Leo has not had a setback. He's been doing so well that stopped watching him like a hawk and relaxed thinking he was for sure fine now. Then this morning. I was preparing his breakfast medicine (mixed with canned food so he thinks it's a treat) and after first running in to check that I was fixing it, he disappeared. He usually stays and tries to pull it off the counter before I'm dont. Darn tall cat..
I went to set it down, prepared to shove him away until it's actually on the floor... and he wasn't there. I called him. Nothing. He was already locked in upstairs so Star can't get his meds, so he couldn't go far. Finally he bolted into the room and went face down in the bowl. He came from the litter box area, so ah, ok, that's why he was missing.
After just a few bites, he made a weird meow, turned and ran to the door, stopped short, flopped down and started licking his 'area'. Oh no, I thought, he's having another incident. He must be hurting. I got Greg's attention, thinking we might have to run him to the vet before he goes to work. But then Leo jumped up and went face down in his food again.
Last night he did not finish his meds because he didn't like the food I mixed it in. Star didn't like it either. I knew it wasn't a favorite, but I was low on cans, and it was all chicken... He got most of the med part, I think, but I know he didn't get it all. And that's both the antibiotic and the other thing that I can never remember what it is except that aside from what it is, it's also a pain reliever.
So I don't know if he still having problems but the meds keep him from hurting, or if he was getting better and had one isolated incident.
He's acting fine now. He's been his normal self all day. Playing, annoying Star, eating, and there haven't been any out of the litter box problems. Not even this morning. I hope I misread what was happening. I hope there won't be any further problems. I'm certainly not going to put his meds in food they've both disliked in the past!
I'm picture-less today, mostly because of how late it is and how much I have to do today.. But I did want to post the wildfire banner. I have both family and friends out there near the wildfires. We're praying for rain, and that everyone will be safe.
