Sad and Happy

Force feeding a cat through a syringe sucks.
Forcing a cat to swallow two pills and a syringe of white fluid sucks.
Rehydrating a cat via tubes and IVs sucks.

At least my job is just to load the syringes, prep the food/pills, and distract while Monkeys inserts the IV. His job is much harder.


Meanwhile, I'm working on prize baggies for Monkey's b-day party. I'm kind of pleased with them so far... I'm afraid I'm more familiar with the Infocom game than I am with the books, radio show, tv shows, or movie, so my decorations and prize bags lead more toward that source. Still, I'm having fun. Monkeys wanted to make his own cake, so I asked him what ideas he had so far. I made a suggestion based on some items I purchased for decorations (thanks to Andrew from the Brobdinagian Bards!!), and now he's going to base his cake around my idea - yay!

Still open to suggestions if anyone has any.

Sorry about the kitty, I know it sucks when one of your "family" gets sick.

I can't wait to see all of the fun things you have prepared for his party, it sounds like it's gonna be super-duper fun!

She is doing so much better! The IV part has gotten to be much easier for us to do; we almost look like we know what we are doing. The pills and food are still a struggle, though. Even with them, Monkey's attitude when doing them as improved. He's much more (for lack of a better word) cheerful while doing it. He's still having to really struggle to get her mouth open (she FIGHTS this), and she's still rejecting a lot of the food, but he doesn't sound as stressed out while doing it. I know she's not going to 'get better' but I'm glad for this respite from the dark clouds that had been hanging over us.
