Diamond still resting

Lynettea said I could write a little bit, although I am spending most of my time lying in my basket, which she has put in the lounge room near my computer. For years the basket has been on top of the washing machine, but she got it down for me last night, as I only felt like sitting on the carpet, instead of jumping up onto one of my seats in the chairs.

I worry that Lynettea has made my private health problems so public. I tell her it can't interest anyone if I have used my litter tray. Anyway I have done a few little bits, if anyone is interested. I took my tablet this morning, as I felt sorry for Lynettea. She sat there brushing my coat a lot and worrying about me. I can tell that she is worrying, because she keeps on saying things like, 'I love you Diamond. Get well!' or, 'Do you want a cuddly now Diamond?'

I didn't like it at the Vet Hospital. They gave me a cosy to sleep in which rolled over when I turned around and threw me out. Lynettea came to visit and told the nurse about me falling out of the cosy. They gave me chicken to eat - but I don't like it. And they kept sticking things into me, which they called enemas. I felt really poked about and pulled about and my arm was bandaged so stiffly with the drip that Lynettea thought it was a sticking out part of the cosy, until she saw a bit of my furs coming out the end of the bandage.

I am trying to rest, so don't think I will write any more now. Thank you to my friends for all your wishes.

Diamond, we are so glad you are well enough to come home. We don't much care for vet hospitals, either. Those enemas and that wobbly cosy sound terrible. Your basket sounds much more comfy, and perfect for resting and recovering. Lynettea loves you so much, and so do we, so rest up and get better soon, dear friend.

Purrs and prayers,

Your friends at Animal Shelter Volunteer Life

Poor Diamond. You may think we're not interested in your litter box but we worry about you and want to know if you're getting better. I send you my best purrs. I'll also send Teddy, if you think that would help.

Diamond, we are glad to hear that you are resting. It is probably the best thing for you. We are sorry you aren't liking your pills, but if they help you get better, you need to take them. We are continuing to purr that you feel better soon.

Hurrah for little bits! It's a start and if you stay well hydrated, more should be on the way. Dehydration wreaks havoc on us cats.
Sounds like you had a bad time at the vets. Mum always says you have to tell them exactly what you expect of them. When one of our brothers was in a major university teaching hospital, they had him with an iv, an iv pump, a cozy and a litter all in the smallest cage they had. He could barely move with his pain from spinal stenosis. Mum asked why couldn't he switch with another cat so he could have some room and be more comfortable. Their answer was because they would have to clean the cages. Mum went totally crazy . He got moved. We hope you don't have to go back again. There is no place like our homes, dear Diamond. You are in our prayers and will be for as long as you need them.

ML said...

O, Diamond, you sound miserable.
Please get well soon and they will let you go home.
I's purring as hard as I can.
I's getting well a little bit.
Just rest, that's what I's doing.
Love & Purrs,

Poor Diamond, hospitals aren't the nicest places, no wonder you are feeling a bit poked about. We hope you and your Mum can get in lots of rest and snuggles together now and you keep feeling better!

You have been through so much lately. The Vet Hospital sounded scary. I don't think I would like to fall out of the cosy when I'm feeling poorly!!
