Shh! He’s had a Rough Day.

The Chuckster has allergies. Springtime allergies.
Not treatable with benedril allergies.
So his eyes have looked like he was stoned for a day or two now, but yesterday morning found him with one of them gooped shut. Not what we like to see around here, let me tell you.
So I call in backup for work. I do keep some sort of regular job, I swear, and got myself to Target by 9:30, for a new carrier for him, cause I gave away the old carrier with the FIV+ cat, and at 10:45 Chucky-Charles and I found ourselves at the Animal Rescue Leage clinic.
Oh, what a fun, fun place. Right. 3 hours and 26 bucks later we were home with antibiotics.
Now, I don’t like being at the clinic, but for not a real emergency, but for when they need a vet, it’s great, and at least 100 bucks cheaper than dragging him to our regular vet.

These are the times I couldn’t be happier to know how to knit.

My boy is home and he’s fine, and his eyes look way better. He’s not real happy about the antibiotic gooey jell stuff though.

He doesn’t actually have 3 ears, that’s his brother, Little Dude, snoozin behind him.

Project Spectrum bonus, they’re both orange.

ETA: Oh man, Allergies nothing, I was just over at Jess’ Blog. Go over there right now and read the last 2 posts, and send all your good thoughts, wishes, and if you pray, those too, to her and her pretty Catty. She’s got way more need for them.

    Poor Kitty has allergies. He’s darn cute, though!!

  4. Beth S. says:

    Aww. Poor kitty! But he has the good drugs now. Both of you should be feeling better shortly. 😉

    There’s just something about an orange cat. I never met a single one that was unfriendly.

  5. Agnes says:

    Oh … I’m so sorry to read about this! Wish him get better soon. I have pollen allergy and so I know how uncomfortable it can be. 🙁

  6. awwww poor little guy! He is adorable though! I love orange kitties 🙂
    Hope he feels better soon

    Mmm … I meant to tell you about Catty … but didn’t know how to put it. But it seems she’s a brave one … I am eager to read about the updates too.

  8. Chris says:

    Oh, I’m glad that the Chuckster was able to get some medicine for what ails him. ‘Cos really, just thinking about poor Catty makes me get very teary and sad and puts it in perspective.

    *goes off to give Chaos a BIG SQUEEZE*

    What beautiful boys!

    I have an orange boy too! Yours are beautiful! 😉

    Beautiful kitties. My orange one died three years ago after 17 good years of playing, sleeping and purring. There’s something so nice about an orange kitty.
    On another note, if your kitty gets allergies quite often (lots of sneezing and weepy eyes) you should have your vet check for Feline Herpes. It’s what my little buddy has. It’s not contagious and I just have to give a little bit of maple flavoured medicine twice a day. He likes it so it’s way easier to give it to him.
    Hope your kitty is feeling better soon.

    What a sweetie, glad he is feeling better. I feel lucky to heave two healthy ones, especially after reading about poor Catty.

  13. Ruth says:

    Poor pumpkin-colored baby! He looks purely miserable in that first picture. I’m glad he is feeling better.

  14. Jasmin says:

    Oh, poor baby. Hey Julia, e-mail me your mailing address? Chekhov wants to send Chuck something.

    Oh, poor kitties. They are so cute! Little Dude looks just like my Marvin, a rescued feral.
