The very last day at the Garda Lake, coming back from the beach I thought I had hallucinations. Coming out under a quite big gate leading to a well protected private villa, Arthur crossed my way !

When he saw me he immediately came to say hello and turned around my legs, purred and was so really friendly !


I stayed and played a while with him, he was still a young cat about 6 months old but really Arthur's double !

Our Arthur while we were on holidays had choosen a new napping place, which he hasn't used for almost a year. As I didn't know that, I nearly stepped on him because he lays now under my desk and waits until the heat is gone before he visits the neighborhood.


The next day after our return I found Rosie a little strange but thought it was because it was so unusually hot. But then I noticed that she had difficulties to swallow as if she had something in her throat. The next day she tried to eat, but had to spit out the food, even the wet one. It didn't go through. In the evening I ran with her to the vet.

Rosie had a sore throat ! an Angina. I didn't even know that cats could get sore throats !


The vet gave her a shot with a painkiller. I told her that by watching her, I was now able to give shots and had done it into the belly of Mr. Gattino after his operation. She found that very good and suggested that I could give the shots myself, Rosie still needed 4, one each day and this way I didn't have to come back unless there was something special.


Armed with this shot I pulled up Rosie's fur and sticked the needle in. For some strange reason Mr. Gattino had something else to do and couldn't take a picture of me as vet. Rosie didn't even realize and only wondered about this strange thing.


Today she feels good again and I have to give her the last shot this evening, but she eats normally and apparently her throat doesn't hurt anymore either.



To comfort her I bought her two fresh mousies, the once she adores to carry around and let them drop into the food or water.

Pookie sleeps 24 h, ol'Lisa sings the whole day and want to eat and Kim I have only seen twice since we are back. She must sleep somewhere in a shady place.

Aw...poor Rosie. Hope she is feeling much better now. And I must salute you for being able to give her the shots yourself.

Well, Arthur lookalike finally appears because he knows you misses him...haha!

That white cat does look like Arthur doesn't he. And here's you with your attractions for cats again...he comes straight over to you...must be your perfume...lol.

Poor little Rosie. I've never heard of a cat getting a sore throat, but on thinking about it, why not? Good on you giving her the injections...that would save a bit of cash, too.

I hope Rosie will be better now,
I am so concerning about her!!!

Luna und Luzie said...

Welcome back, Gattina!!!
Oah poor Rosie. I heard about that pet can get this disease too. They can get infected by us humans.
Glad to read that Rosie is feeling better.
How fun that Arthur has a young double at the Gardasee.

Ich finde es mutig von dir, ihr die Spritze zu geben. Weiterhin gute Besserung !

Poor Rosie - and how brave you are! I loathe needles. Purring for you all and hope to see her 100% next Tuesday.

Maribeth said...

Ah, poor Rosie. You see, you leave them for just a few days and all heck breaks lose with them.
I am glad that Rosie is feeling better.

I am glad Rosie is feeling better poor thing. Good thing she waited to get sick until her mommy was back!

Glad that Rosie is getting better, hopefully she makes a full recovery soon.

That cat does bear an uncanny resemblance to Arthur. We once had a black cat run outside our old home and got really worried I saw Luna outside.

Happy to hear Rosie is feeling better thanks to your excellent doctoring.

I've updated my Cats on Tuesday blog today! Yay! Anela and I are back on board.

There are no doubt about it:
cats do know immediatly what humans they can trust or not.

Wonderful photos and stories.

Arthurs twin is really cute and friendly. I am glad you found him.

Love and purrrs to all of you

That really looks like Arthur!

We hope that Rosie get well soon. I just love the photos of Arthur and Rosie. They look lovely together.

Whew, I'm so glad it was a sore throat only and that you were able to give the shots to Rosie so she had relief and could eat again. I got a fright when I read Rosie was spitting the food out, reminded me of what happened to Sox. You're right, I quite forgot to come and visit after I posted Tuesday--I also forgot the Cat Blogosphere, lol! I've been really busy and in so much pain lately. :P
