The Rudy Report

I still hate the medicine!
Happy Holidays kitties! It's me! RUDY! with your Rudy Report! I am very happy to report that I am still hanging in here. I'm at about 70%, I still fight the good fight with my medicine (7 more days...) and my appetite is a lot better, but boy-oh-boy am I ever picky about the foods. I have the 'rents buying stock in stinky goodness. AND - I think Parker has gained a squillion pounds. She sneaks up behind me after I pick at the food and hoovers it up before Mommy can catch her. I, on the other paw, still need to bulk up a bit. I'm still on the skinny side for me and I blame Mommy and the awful gunky medicine. It takes my desire to eat away. So then, I get a little Valium and I eat a little. Better living thru chemicals kitties...
The good news is that I have not had to get Sub Q's or visit Dr's. Joe and Wendy for over a week! I mean, it's great to visit them and all, but I prefer to stay home and enjoy our tree and the 'rents laps.
I appreciate your good thoughts and purrs. I'm still on the road to recovery.

Good for you, Rudy. Keep getting better. It is making everykitty and your rents happy.

Sparkle said...

I am glad you are getting better, but the food thing...! I have the same issue with Binga - I am finicky and eat slowly and she steals my food if no one watches, or even takes their eyes away for a second! And if it's not her, Boodie will sneak in and take my food the moment I walk away. I have to be fed separate from the other two cats. My human is considering putting me and my food into a closed room at meal times. Maybe yours should try that too?

MoMo said...

Keep up the good work, Rudy. You need to be 100% by Christmas. Tell Parker to contain herself and not to eat so much.

Rudy it is so good to see you again. We are happy you are a little better. We are sending lots of purrs and will cross our paws for you to get all better. Our Mom will talk to the donkeys and get them to cross their hooves too which is quite hard for them to do. Take care and keep taking that medicine.

Kea said...

We're so happy that you're feeling better, Rudytoots.

One thing we've had great success with in getting weight on older kittens (including Lishy, who gets a bit skinny sometimes) is baby kitten formula. It has good fats and nutrients in it. We've never had a kitty who doesn't love it, too.

Admiral Hestorb said...

Rudy, me and mommy both love you dearly and want you to be 100% better and right away! Try to eat more, and please please don't tell the 'rents that you won't take your medicine. Giving it to you causes them to be stressed because YOU are. And soon, you will be all better and glowing with health and bulked up to where you also weigh a squillion pounds. I can't wait. xoxoxoxox

Forty Paws said...

Hang in there Dude. You're almost done with the yucky meds and you will gain weight and feel much better very soon!

Rudy, we're happy you're feeling better...Mommy feeds KonaKitty separately, she's a slow eater. You may just only be able to eat a little bit at a time right now. We'll send you a TON more purrs...and only 7 more days of yucky medicine!

♥I am Holly♥ said...

Rudy, we hope you get better really soon. Keep taking your valium and the other meds and then maybe more valium and that will definitely be better living! Lots of love!

The Paw Relations said...

Keep doing so well Rudy!

Eric and Flynn said...

We are glad you are improving Rudy. Seven more days of meds isn't so bad. You are almost there. 70% is good and now we are purring for the final 30%.

CCL Wendy said...

Well, that's good news, Rudy! Even if you don't like the medicine, it's still better than feeling so ill. We hope you'll be at 100 PURR cent very soon. Purrs until then.

ABBY said...

Rudy we'll take the 70% -- that's great for right now. Maybe this week you can work it up to about 80% and then before you know you'll be at 90% and then da-dah 100% Rudy toots.
We are purrin hard for you Rudy!

Au and Target said...

Poor sweetheart! Purring you get better soon. Au is always ready to eat ham, and when he does, he later wants his healthy fish for kitties. maybe it will work for you?

Zippy, Sadie and Speedy said...
