Both Kitties Sick - Cat Diary July 8th 2011

Byron this morning with his bad leg outstretched.

Well today isn't a good day in our household, especially for our cats Byron and Shelley.

i will admit i have never had cats in my life who have been so ill so often, mainly due to bites and scratches mind you.

Yesterday Byron woke up in the morning limping badly. We had no idea how he did this and can only assume that he may have been bitten by a mouse or rat the night before. He was limping so badly that i had to keep him in all day which he did not like and had to teach him how to use the litter tray again.

he seems lethargic all day and so we took him to the vets who discovered that he was running a very high temperature, so a infected bite somewhere seems to be the most obvious cause.

Today I woke up to discover that both Byron and Shelley do not want to get up. Now this is very unusual especially for Shelley not to want his breakfast. They are both sound asleep and show no interest in getting up. To day this is very weird and strange is an understatement. So as you can imagine I am very, very worried about both of them now.

We have another vet appointment later today for Byron but if Shelley does not pick up, he will be going too.

My main concern is that they have eaten a mouse and I know for a fact that my neighbors are poisoning mice.

Lets hope this is nothing serious and they will both pick up tomorrow.
