Hang Down Your Head Poor Cinders

It is the first time in her life Cinders had to take medication. It is the first time she got sick in 17 years.

With so much medication to swallow on the first day, her frail body simply could not stomach it and she threw up. Here feeling absolutely miserable and feeble, she hung her head down.

Since then EJ spread the medicine-giving throughout the day to some in the morning, some in the evening and the remaining medication late at night. Cinders is responding well either because she is getting used to pills and medication being forced down her throat or EJ is getting better in doing it.

Cinders seems a little stronger now. Only a blood test  can confirm whether this is true.

I hope Cinders gets well soon! She's really a wonderful kitty to stand taking all that medicine. Even a human adult like me hates taking medicine!

Sharon Wagner said...

Oh shoot. Poor thing. Hope the medicine stays in from now on.

Tracy said...

Oh, I am so praying for Cinder's good health and for you all for having to be persistent in giving her the meds. I'm certain it's draining but well worth it.
Take good care and keep us posted!
