Saturday-Sucks To Be Me

Be nice to me I've had a rough week. What my mom and dad thought were allergies turned out to be a yucky kitty cold. I've been sneezing and snorting and miserable. To make matters worse I started chewing on my back end, pulling out some of my beautiful thick furs! On a good day you can hear me snoring across the room, but now it's even more impressive.

I got hauled off to the doctor on Thursday night. There ought to be a law about that. Can I get a lawyer, can I sue? Do you know what he did to me? He pulled me near and looked in my mouth and I snorted even more...and then he smiled and said I was all "boogery"! What kind of a diagnosis is that? Then it got much worse. He looked at my bum and figured out that the reason I was chewing on my hind end was because I needed my anal sacs "expressed". Oh the nerve...the indignity of it all. Can I sue?

I'm home now and I admit I'm feeling better. The few minutes of embarrassment did make me feel much better. I was given an antibiotic shot so my mom and dad don't need to shove pills or pink stuff down my throat. I probably won't be allowed to go to Jonesie's party tomorrow, but I'll watch from the window.

Isis had to be anally expressed when she was a young kitten, and I don't think she ever got over it. She's still traumatized.

Cliff and Olivia said...

"Anally expressed" doesn't sound right somehow. But we're glad you're better!

Furkidsmom said...

Oh dear - boogery! That's not good. Tamir and Sniffie had that nasty anal sac thing done - it was furry embarrassing, but it did make them feel better. Hope you're better soon.

Oh Madison...we're so sorry you hadta go to the v-e-t...and to suffer that indignation! We hope you feel better, though...being boogery isn't much fun either...

Our vet calls it the Sneezles, MOL. And yep, chewing around where your tail attaches to your bod it sorta typical of full A.G.'s...you'll be feeling better soon! For your sneezles, you can take L-Lysine 250mg every 12 hours to help prevent the virus from replicating. It's easy to crush the human tablet and mix in with some stinky goodness!

Poor Madison! Hope you feel all better soon.

Parker said...

Yikes, that's what I can a very bad day. I really hope you are feeling better!

The Creek Cats said...

Madison, we're sure you'll be feeling better very soon.

I haven't heard of too many cats having to get their anal glands expressed. I know that dogs seem to have a bigger problem in that area....
and they do a lot of scooting around when they have problems in that area. I'm glad your bum will be better.

Sweet Praline said...

Poor Madison! I hope you feel better really soon! I've had that "expressed" thing done and I didn't like it one bit!

Cat with a garden said...

Oh noes! Madison, I know what you're talking about when it comes to these anal sacs: They did the same to me, can you believe it? I'm glad though that you feel better already. Maybe one nasty shot is better than a daily fight for pills... Sleep tight and tomorrow the world will look much better already. Purrs to you, Siena

The McGray Lads, Gandalf and Grayson said...

Goodness, a double whammy on both ends! We sure hope you feel well enough by tomorrow to attend the party, Madison.

Madison,

I'm sorry you were sick and had to go to the vet. My kitties don't like that place either. I hope you feel much better now!

Misha said...

At least your nose was all stuffed up so you couldn't smell your botty when the vet expressed your anal sacs. I've never had it done, but I hear it's really stinky!
