Stinkie has been acting really sluggish lately. I could just tell that something wasn't right. Nobody else noticed and I don't think they believed me, but I know this cat very well, and I just knew something was wrong. He wasn't even following me around, which is unusual for him. Normally, we're each others' shadows - if he's not following me, then I'm following him. Anyway, yesterday morning, he didn't even want to get up and go outside, and when I touched his tummy, he cried. So by yesterday afternoon, I was extremely worried and just had to do something. I took him to the vet, where I found out he had a 105.2 degree temperature! That is high! His skin was also really broke out (he has had feline miliary dermititis all his life), so the vet seemed to think that may have something to do with how he was feeling. He gave him a steroid shot, and an antibiotic shot, and we have to give him the antibiotic every morning and night. He seems to be doing much better today. I just want him to continue getting better, I'm still worried. I don't see what the skin thing would have to do with his stomach though. He's not crying about it anymore, so maybe the medicine is helping. I have a feeling he may be constipated. I don't know for sure though. I'm watching him closely. He is in my lap right now and seems happy and feeling ok. So I'm hoping that's a good sign. Please pray for my baby boy. - Sorry, didn't plan on typing this much.
