It’s the peep. Gracie is still on sick leave (milking it for sure!) and the rest are in a food stupor which comes after they steal each other’s food. They have yet to figure out it all comes out of the same cans.
Gracie is fine. Her peeps are still in recovery. The medication trauma every morning wore everyone out. The industry needs to come up with ways to disguise meds to get INTO cats. (I’m at old hand at this. Gracie defies the burrito wrap and to some extent, even scruffing.) The vet said to mix with food. That didn’t work. I could smell the medicinal odor and Gracie’s sense of smell is better than mine. They also gave me (and charged me for) two bottles. At the checkup the vet said I could stop it. I have a full unopened bottle that I paid for plus about a quarter of the first bottle.
As for her ears, still no answer. There is no bacteria, yeast or polyps. I will continue to clean them and hope for the best. If it builds up again, I may try her old vet. She is a cat only vet and has a lot of experience with weird cat specific things.
As for the other cats, their niceness is wearing off. It wasn’t going to last but I appreciate that they tried.
The tooth fairy Ellen from 15 cats and meowing sent a package full of hand crocheted catnip toys. (Note to readers: Ellen’s blog link wasn’t working for me this morning. Not sure why but I sent a message to Ellen.) Gracie felt well enough to slobber on everything. It included a “silvervine” toast which is a crocheted tan square (looks like a slice of toast) with silvervine on it. I never heard of it. Gracie wasn’t impressed but Sasha took it for herself and has rarely been seen since. (Wonder if they have that for peeps?) It has the same effect as catnip. Gracie (and all the other cats) thank Ellen.
Everyone here wishes you all a great weekend.
