Arthur right us

Is what the vet says I have. It sounds silly. arthur wrong us. arthurwrongus. I am not sure who arthur is. Maybe he came to visit when I was quite young and don't remember, although, in spite of what Lynettea thinks, I have an exceptionally good memory.
I have to take some medicine squirted with a plunger, which is quite difficult for Lynettea. Although my Vet carefully showed her how to do it twice (as it is very important and affects ME ME ME) she still isn't very good. I don't like having my mouth jerked open, but the taste is quite nice.

She needs to go to the chicken shop very shortly.

'You are developing quite a nasty miaouw' she said to me this afternoon.

And that was after I had sat on her lap to make her feel wanted. Maybe I will go to sleep now and let her wake me gently to brush my fur and feed me a few tidbits. A nice dream.

Getting stuff squirted in your mouth is the worst! At least your medicine tastes good. I've never had medicine that tasted anything but hideous. Purrs to you Diamond, I hope that this stuff sends Arthur-whosis away!

Diamond, there's also glucosamine + chondroitin in capsule form that you can pull apart and sprinkle in canned food. The North American vet brand name for this is Cosequin and it's available via or .ca, maybe even your version of Amazon too. The mom also saw it at PetSmart yesterday. Not sure if this would be a good option for you, so we'll tossing the info out!

I'm sorry you got Arthur Right Us. I am a little bit stiff, and I take Cosequin and now I am much more active!

We don't like arthurwrongus, either, dear Diamond. He visits our Sammy, too. :(

What is the medicine you have to take? Is it helping? Sammy takes Cosequin to help his joints, and it does seem to help. Best of all, the capsules taste like chicken and shrimp!

We'll let you get back to your nap now.

we have heard about this Arthur and there is definitely nothing right about him, Diamond! He has a way of sneaking up on kitties when we aren't looking, we think. We usually give our mom a tough time when we have medicines to take. If she can't put it in our food then she may as well not bother! Enjoy your nap and brushies, Diamond. Purrs,

Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

Hi Diamond! We're sorry you have arthur right us. We hope that medicine helps you.

Instead of your mom opening your mouth thru the front, tell her you want her to go in the side of your mouth in the pocket by your cheek. It usually works better that way. We are purring that this medicine helps you feel better.

Arthur right us! Mum has a touch as does a few of our cat family. Aging! Drats!
We use Cosequin too! Helps our joints to feel a bit better. Mum was iffy about giving it to us but it works ( some of us are helped more than others). Mum sprinkles it on a wee bit of highly palatable food. She doesn't put it on our dinners because she wants us not to be afraid that our food might contain something other than food and stop eating! Mum says its every cats right to have a tasty meal. The woman isn't really too bad, is she.
