"Fever of Unknown Origin" & V-E-T Report

Everything was fine at our house on Wednesday night, at least according to Chester.....

The usual was going on.....Chester was jumping on my back.....but the next morning, I was feeling really, really sick.

I did not let mom take a picture of me Thursday morning before we went to the V-E-T, because my furs were not very clean and pristine on my chest....but this is me after I got home from the V-E-T.

I had gotten a "fever of unknown origin" of 104! In the morning, I was drooling and lots of liquid was coming from my nose and mouth. I was so sick, and mom was so worried. I have gotten sick like this before, but this time it was really bad.
Mom rushed me to the V-E-T, along with Chester, so he could get his New Turd. I got an exam, some fluids and a shot of antibiotics AND my bloods were stolen......and yup, Chester got a New Turd.

When Chester came home from the V-E-T yesterday, he was not too happy. He had to wear a cone around his head, and he was grumbling: "This is just wrong, I tell you, wrong!"

"Mom, mom! I am choking! Help me, help me!"

"Get this thing OFF of me!"

Needless to say, the cone only lasted 2 minutes and mom had to take it off of him.
I still don't understand what a New Turd is. Chester said it was no fun at all, but he did not seem to feel any effects at all afterwards, and played the rest of the day and night!

We are both feeling better this morning, but mom will watch us closely, to make sure we are both well!

Before you go, please sign my GUESTBOOK, and stop by my BIG WORLD too, thanks!

I was so worried when I heard you was sicky...I closed my eyes and waited for you in the sunflower fields, but you never showed up. I was so worried! I am glad your mum got you medicines and you are feeling better now.
I wish I would get a cone someday...never have I had to wear one, but they look delicious.
I had to get a new turd too, member? I won't go into details, since you are girl and all

Daisy said...

I will keep you in my thoughts and purrayers my sweet blue eyes. I'm so glad Chester bounced right back. Toeshee did too. He never had a cone though.

JB, I'm so glad that you are feeling better. We're glad that Chester is doing great. I bet the worst part was having that cone on his head.

Glad you two are better!! That photo of Chester jumping is so funny.

Have I mentioned how smitten Mommy is of Chester?

Hansel said...

how scary for your momma! oh jb, we are so glad you're alright. And, a new turd! Wow. What a thing to have. Tesla had to wear that thing when she was Spayed. She had to because she would mess with her sutures. Mom said she flung litter ALL over the place and would look all sad. So when mommy got home from work, tesla would meet her at the door and wait for mom to take it off. Then she'd run and potty, then mom would put it back on. Tesla would sit by the box and let mom know take it off now, i can't pee like this.

Angel said...

We are glad you are both feeling better! You take care!

Thor said...

Hope you both are feeling so much better today!

We were worried when we read about the fever JB, but we're glad that you're doing better now, and especially that the v-e-t gave you a shot to help you. It's good that Chester got himself new turd - there's way too many homeless kitties around...

Oh, we're kind of slow. We had to read the comments before we figured out what a new Turd is. What Buddy calls being farmed.

Pedro said...


My mom is not a fan of Cone Heads either and has never been able to leave them on any of her pets for more than a couple of minutes! I'm glad you're feeling better today.

Westley was so upset to hear you were sick, JB. We're glad that you're feeling better now.

Congrats on your New Turd, Chester!


PS - Chester's a great name!

JB, my mom just saw you are sick on FB so I had to come by to send you special healing prayers.

I had one of those weird fevers last year and was very sick. The vet eventually said it was Flea Fever.
