The topic: I haven’t been posting much


because sitting in this chair in front of the computer is really bothering my lower back.  I don’t know what I did to it, it’s not as bad now as it was last week, but sitting here for long periods of time makes it worse, so I’m not sitting here.

And that’s why I haven’t been posting as much.

The topic: I think Jackson has a cold


I hope and pray that’s all it is.

Yesterday, late afternoon, he was drooling really badly.  As the night went on, the drooling quit and his nose was very runny.  Still is today, just dripping.  It isn’t constant, but when he lays down, there’s a steady drip.

You might recall that Jackie is the only adult that hasn’t been neutered.  Because we can’t grab him and get him in a carrier without major skin damage. 

Thinking back on it, he has been under the weather, actually sleeping on the loveseat in the family room.  I’m thinking he might have the same thing that Georgie is just now getting over, that Monica has finally overcome and that Joey still has.  Not as bad as it was, but he’s still got a little of it in his system.

I’m going to do an online search for l-Lysine in powdered form.  That would be great to have and just add to their nightly food ration.

Jackie is still eating, he ate some of the Nutro kibble last night, he had dinner with the other cats and later I was able to get him to lick some Wellness off of my index finger.  He ate over a half of a small can.  It went much easier when he was in the bedroom and I was able to shut the door to keep the other cats from trying to the the food before he did.

Could you please keep a good thought for him?

The topic: About the doctor’s visit


I don’t have high blood pressure.  He did suggest getting a blood panel done, just to rule out anything else that might be going on, like we do for our aging cats.

I would have done it yesterday, but I had a bowl of cereal for breakfast and you need to have fasted overnight.

The topic: It’s TUMMY TUESDAY #10!

Today’s tummy belongs to Benny.  This was taken at the beginning of the month and you can see how his fur is growing in curly.  It doesn’t stay that way, though. 


If you’ve got a Tummy Tuesday blog entry, feel free to post the link in the comment section or trackback to this entry. And if you put a link back to this page, then more kitties will get to show off their tummies!
