I noticed that something was wrong with Pookie, she was licking her botty more as usual. Mr. G. had a look and discovered a terrible looking hole .... an ulcer just besides the natural little hole !

Immediate decision, taking her to the vet. He catched her without difficulties in the garden and put her in the carrier, she didn't protest very much and also was very good in the car, far better as our other darlings who sing operas the whole way long.

She got an antibiotic shot and now she has to take 1 1/2 pill for 3 days.

Pookie exhausted after the visit to the vet, cools down on the tiles.

The first time we gave her the pill, me holding her and Mr. G. opening her mouth it was a terrible fight and we were exhausted. Pookie ran away offended. Next day I tried with food. I put the pill in a raw meat ball and she ate it without any problem ! What a relieve for the next days !

Arthur, Kim and Rosie enjoy the warm weather in the garden and don't move very much. It's just too hot.

Kim now allows Mr. G. to brush her back and on the sides, that's already something, because she got knots again and each day there are enough hairs in the brush to make a wig for a bare cat ! No way to touch her belly, though !

Mr. G. "complains" (men have always something to complain about) that his bed is getting too small, and that he can't move anymore. Kim sometimes joins the company and lays at his feet !
I only have little Rosie sleeping with me who defends my bed ferociously ! Only Arthur is allowed to share my bed with her !

Don't forget to leave your link and visit each other !

Mr. G has "nothing" to complain about! We have a king sized bed, and we still threaten to shove my human off it!

P.S. I hope the pills are doing the trick for Pookie - that sore sounded like no fun!

Barbara said...

Poor Pookie, hope she's ok. The cats look as if they're enjoying the sunshine, and love that photo of the overcrowded bed!

Poor Pookie ~ his bum must be very sore. Smoochies.

catsynth said...

We hope that Pookie is better soon! That sounds pretty bad (it's fortunate you were able to spot it).

The cats seem so immobile out in the hot weather that the look like the statue :)

The Chair Speaks said...

Sending lots of healing purrs to Pookie it get well fast.
We think even if Mr G gets a bigger bed, the cats will conquer most of the space! :)

Irishcoda said...

Poor Pookie! So glad to hear that she is willing to take the antibiotic in food. We have a terrible time trying to get medication for allergies into Cubby. We tried food and it worked for a couple of days but then he wised up and wouldn't eat the food anymore. We may have to bring him to the vet once a month for allergy shots! :P

Amy & the house of cats said...

Oh poor Pookie - we are sorry she is hurt but we are glad she is able to get her medicine to get better so easily. We are sending her lots of get well purrs and prayers.

And we understand about the bed thing - our mom has a king size bed and she still complains we take up too much room sometimes!

Trixie said...

Oh Pookie! I'm so sorry about your owie and hope you feel better very soon!

meowmeowmans said...

Poor Pookie! We hope those antibiotics make her feel better real soon.

Whisppy said...

Poor Pookie! She's so lucky you were observant and managed to get it treated before it got worst. Maybe in time, Kim will allow Mr G to brush her tummy. Arthur and Rosie look very happy which is always a good thing. :)

We love LUNA said...
