Feelings of Tortie





Yesterday was not a good day for Tortie. 

He refused to eat so all medication did not go in...and was annoyed with EJ but managed to coax Tortie to drink some warm fish soup.

Tortie became rather sticky and followed EJ everywhere like a little puppy even to the toilet. He would howl when he could not see EJ.

He rested a lot. EJ's Mickey Mouse shorts is one of the spots he likes. 

Of course, his favourite is between EJ's knees.

Another favourite spot is the cushion. For the first time in his nine and a half years' life, Tortie urinated on that cushion.

Later at night when EJ watched the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony in Delhi live on TV, Tortie watched too.

When the neighbourhood quietened at midnight, EJ prepared to give Tortie his fluid therapy. Tortie knew and kept struggling and running away till EJ gave up.

It was an exhausting day. EJ felt bad in neglecting other cats.

I didn't watch the games opening ceremony, it started at midnight here. I've heard it was very good so hope it is repeated at a better time. I'm sure Tortie enjoyed your company while you both watched T.V.

Tortie, it is so hard, hon, to feel like garbage and then be forced to take all of those meds and fluids, but you have to do it! I hope tomorrow is a much better day for you and your family!

That's a terrible stress when you want to take care of your sick cat and it doesn't want to cooperate. For both parties !
BTW when I am on the toilet I always have the visit of my cats, I can't leave the door closed otherwise they scratch or meow until I open, lol !

Old Kitty said...

Oh EJ!! My heart really goes to you!! I'm feeling so teary eyed reading how sweet Tortie is following you around and wetting his favourite cushion. He's not a well kitty and doesn't understand all the meds and loves you so much! Awwwww!! Me and Charlie are sending you tons and tons of hugs.
We have everything crossed that he'll fight this and pull through ok!!

Take care

EJ, Keep it up ! ...have a good rest tonight. Next day will be better. Don't forget to take him to bed with you : ) I just kidding : )

Kea said...

Poor Tortie! We're sending lots of purrs and healing Light. Sweetie, you have to take your medication and the fluids, otherwise things will not go well. :-(

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are sending lots of purrs to Tortie and hope he will get to be
more tolerant of those procedures.
It is so stressful for you EJ knowing that it will help him but upsetting him by doing it.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Oh my. Tortie definitely looks annoyed in the first photo. Poor thing.

Lucy the Cat said...

Oh, sweet Tortie. I know this must be so hard on you, EJ. I'm so sorry. I know that Simba couldn't handle antiobiotics at all. He turned into a "sick" kitty overnight just from having to take them. It was terrible. Anyway, I truly hope things get better and I hope he feels comforted by your love.

ABBY said...

OH dear sweet Tortie and EJ...we are sorry you are both suffering...and we hope that Tortie will begin to accept the medicines and therapy that will help.

We know how hard it can be to treat cats that don't feel well but don't want to be handles. Sometimes the best thing to do is take a break. It is very stressful for both of you. we are sending purrs for Tortie.
