My Human Momma had to take my Cat Momma up to Vet Kathy's right away, quick, this morning. Last night, Momma and I had hearty play, she was feeling fine, except her milk tasted funny, so I didn't nurse her. This morning at 5:00 AM, when Human Momma opened the door to let us out, she couldn't find Cat Momma. She was behind the door, in the litter box, limp, running a fever and very sick with diarrhea. The area around her nipple was hard and hot. Human Momma knew immeditely it was mastitis and before Vet Kathy opened Human Momma had my Cat Momma in the carrier. Vet Kathy opened the door, took one look, and gave Cat Momma a shot and some fluids. She is resting peacefully and eating and drinking. She is on the mend. Human Momma said mastitis is life threatening; thank goodness Vet Kathy opened early and lives so close.
Human Momma is working at the shelter tomorrow and will be making a vet run with one of their sick cats, so she will check in on my Cat Momma and give her a proper goodbye. I think this will involve tears and hugs.
I was maybe a tad naughty today. I learned how to get on the eating table by climbing the back of the dining room chair. Before that, (Momma was gone to the shelter) I spent quality time all day with my Daddy..........ALL DAY......so, as far as he is concerned, I can do no wrong!! And, that is the way I like it.
