Tommy Wants Two

With so many comforting and healing purrs received, Tommy is getting better and says 'thank you'. Skin has formed on those sores on the legs. The ones on his face will take a longer time.

As EJ is a vegetarian due to allergy, the cats usually eat kibbles. Occassionally wet canned food is  given as a treat or to entice as well as reward an unwell cat in taking medication.

EJ found out that Tommy possibly could not eat fish. He vomitted when fish was given with his antibiotics. EJ tried the same thing again the next day, Tommy vomitted again. From then on Tommy took his antibiotics after eating the usual kibbles; no vomit. So Tommy do not need food treats.

He wanted something else. He want to rest and relax comfortably.

Wearing the E-collar, resting on the chair seems to be his favourite. The chair is also Cinders' favourite.

Inspite of the squeeze with the E-collar taking up more space, Tommy was relaxed enough to cross his legs.

With Cinders, who is 16 going on 17, pushing intruding Tommy back, he still kept his crossed-legs position.

Tired of sleeping uncomfortably, Cinders left. Finally Tommy got what he wanted...and splayed across two chairs.

Woof Tommy! Those sores look like 'hot spots' to me. I had those and Keeper just applied something and its gone in two days! The vet said it could be somebody peed on me and it dried up. Keeper said I should not get too close to the black hounds because they always "mark' their territory. The good thing I did not have to wear the dreaded e-collar! But you look good on them although at first glance you look 'headless'!

Hey Tommy,
so sorry we didn't come in earlier to wish u 'get well soon'.
Hope your sores are better.
are they too itchy? I, Buddy, have some on my paws and they are supposedly fungal spots. they are getting better with that horrible paste mummy applies on them.
Sorry about that collar.
but how nice that u get to take up BOTH the chairs!
wags, Buddy n Ginger

Oh tommy we hope you feel better soon!
Cody had a sore on his head that wouldn't go away and we put him on a diet of rabbit...canned and dry...he can eat nothing else.
The sore has cleared up....every now and then it will come back very, very tiny but clears right up.
I hope you can get that cone off soon Tommy! We called Cody "Space Boy" when he had to wear his!
Love, Caren and Cody

It's sad to see our beloved pets with infirmities. I wish yours healing and health. Getting old is hard for our four legged friends and for us as well. I've had a month of ill health, spent a few days in the hospital and wasn't really able to celebrate Thanksgiving in style!

Hi Tommy, spero che tu riesca a guarire molto presto... vedo che anche tu indossi il "cappello", la mia mamma finalmente me lo ha tolto perchè le ho fatto vedere che non mi gratto sull'occhio.
Il cappello è così fastidioso....
ti capisco perfettamente !!!!
Tanti baci :))
