Mancat Monday

Mancat Rule of the Day: When it's medicine time, it's perfectly acceptable to hide. Because if you can't see them, they can't see you. I think avoiding eye contact might work, too. I'll let you know how it goes.

So here's the 'tocks update. The V-E-T called The Mom on Saturday with the results of our diarrhea panel super special poo test. Tazo is in the clear - she tested negative for everything. I tested negative for giardia (wahoo!), but then I turned around and tested positive for clostridium, which is a bacteria that hangs out in your GI tract and can cause 'tocks trouble. So I'm on another 10 days of flagyl and now I have clavamox, too. Which the V-E-T says can cause 'tocks troubles, too. Holy cats, let's hope that doesn't happen. Oh, and The Mom still has to change out our litter every day. heh heh

PS - Mancat Stock Tip of the Day: Buy stock in Swheat Scoop and Kitty's Wonderboxes in the next couple of weeks. I've got some inside information that both companies are going to see an increase in sales. heh heh

In other, other news, Aunt Jen is still in the hospital. Her arm is still infected and they don't know what kind of germ did it. She's getting lots of aunty biotics and they're taking good care of her. But we just wish that she would heal up so she could go home. Her kitty, Molly, really misses her lots.


  1. The cat's not out of the bag! He's in the bag and no one can see him! EG, I am sorry for you and for your Mommy that you still have to take yukky meds.
    Please send our healing love and purrs to your aunt. I just know that her kitty must be very lonely for her!

  2. Oh man you're going to have another 10 days?? That stinks (hehe, no pun intended). We're still purring for Aunt Jen. I hope she can go home soon!


  3. 'tocks! Man, they sure do give a lot of trouble..I'm still purrin' yours will heal up soon. And that your Aunt Jen's arm heals, too!

  5. Oh EG, I am very sorry you have to take more medicines! But you want your 'tocks trouble to be cured for good, so you must takes your medicines like a big boy.

  6. EG, I am wondering if that 'tocks trouble is what the woofie Jake has right now. It's been almost 2 full weeks and he's been tested and its come back neg. Yet he still has that runny pooh. Though it does make the mom sound funny when Jake has an accident on the floor! heh

  8. Sorry to read you still have the 'tocks trouble EG. In my experience, nothing stops the beans when they are on a mission to give you the medicines. Hope the 'tocks behave themselves soon and best wishes to your Aunt and her poorly arm.

  9. Oh EG, dood - that clavamox stuff is nasty. I suggest making sure that the beins wear it instead of you taking it!

  36. Doodz. Like when we had the clostridium issues, it would pass from cat to cat over like a 2 day period so that all cats weren't dooin' it at once. Although it was disgusting...
