What A Week!

What a week it's been!

First, we find out that our cousin dog, Barkie ran away from home a week ago and have yet to be found, despite all efforts to locate her.  We remain hopeful that she will return home soon.

Then Felix started to frequent the litter box and only peeing tiny amounts.  While this isn't good, at least we knew he wasn't blocked as his bladder was empty and he was still his happy playful self. We brought him to the vet and he is now on a course of antibiotics.  The vet thinks it may be due to stress.  He has stopped frequenting the litter box as of today and his litter habits are back to normal.  Yeay!!

Bernie, our bunny started squinting in his right eye about 2 days ago.  He too, is his usual self in every other way except that his eye is red which we think could have been caused by having a piece of hay poke his eye. We will rinse it out with saline and hopefully the redness clears up.

It's been a very tiring week and we are a little behind in commenting.  We may be late, but we'll get there!  Wait for us....

Love, Whisky and the furries

With all the little furries, you sound like Dr. Doolittle! :)

Everybody gets the sickies, but when there's an easy cure, it's such a relief. Take care, furriends!

Probably you need a vacation but I know haw hard it is to go away from your pets, you get always worried, you cannot enjoy it at all. I wish you an easy week with lovely events...
I miss Boomerang and Cosmo...
