Everyday Is Peturday!

This literally just happened.
I see my cat, Bit, is laying down. I stop to go ahead and pick him up. Bit loves to be held, and so every so often I'll just pick him up and sit down somewhere with him.
This time, the minute I picked Bit up, he freaked right out. He was spinning, pivoting, and digging his claws into me in an effort to climb out of my arms and on top of my back & shoulders.
By this point, he's in a spot of my back where I can't reach him, and so I have to call for help. Mom comes over to investigate, sees that Bit is freaking out, and goes over to get him.
...At which point Bit pukes on her.
Someone accidentally tracked some grass in earlier, and he was eating it. This apparently really, really upset his stomach so much that when I picked him up, he couldn't handle it. He was freaking because he was trying to get back down so he could find a spot to spew.

I haven't seen the hobbled cat in a long while now. Hope he's ok. Was feeding a stray cat some bits of dog kibble but I stopped for a week after I read that dog food is missing some stuff that cats need. The stray hasn't shown up in two days.

Okay, let's update, shall we.
When I woke up this morning, I was dead sure I was going to the vet with two cats, and coming home with one.
But, once again, I was wrong. See, last month, we took zoe to the vet to deal with what turned out to be pancreatitis. Today was the one month follow up (we'll be getting the blood test results back tomorrow from todays visit.) and she is doing better. She wants to eat, she's wandering around the house more, she's more physical and affectionate. She is doing much better. But during all this, we largely ignored one of our other cats, maggie. Maggie lost some weight when zoe got sick, but they all were losing weight then because we were changing their food and food habits. In the last week though, I noticed that maggie had gotten skeletal thin. We thought it was her liver, and we were half right. It is her liver giving her problems, but she can recover from this. Apparently it's common enough in cats that have marginally damaged livers whom are also overweight (question mark on the first, but she was a fatty.) to get inflammed livers from stress in their lives. We think between zoe getting sick, and then suffering through a weekend watching my sisters dog, she was done in.
BUT: she can recover. Apparently the inflamed liver is causing bile to build up, which is making her nauseous, which is putting her off her feed. But the liver will correct itself if we start feeding her and she gets the volume she needs. So she's got some meds to make her hungry, something to deal with the nausea, and something else (frankly I'm not sure what it is, but the first dose is given by needle and the rest is pills... I'll read the bottle later.) and she needs to be force fed for a while: but the results in the vets office was promising. She ate, ate well, didn't reject anything and didn't overly fight me when I tried to feed her. Now we start the long process of getting her back into shape... which is good deal more round than she is now.

2/3rds a can of cat food, some cat milk and a good nights sleep and the little bitch is full of all kinds of fight! There's life here yet!
Edit: three feedings yesterday, two so far today, she drank some cat milk, I think she ate some ham... everything smells and tastes like hugging cat food.

My Raider went to sleep today. She was 16 this year. I'd say she earned it. She even held on to make sure everyone got one more pet in this morning. She was such a good girl.

And SUPERbuying is not quite as extreme as buying the HUG outta something.
There's a hierarchy.

This is Gianna. Ive had her for a year now...shes....shes my whole heart. She was born with a large abcess on her back right leg, so once they removed it and she recovered, her leg didnt develop as well as her others so she limps when she walks...but ill be damned if that bothers her when it comes time to run and chase a laser, or jump up on my bed and stuff.
Shes amazing. Ive never had a bond with anyone like i do with her. When she lays next to me when im gaming, or shes taking a bath and comes over to groom me too, is the best thing ever,
last night she decided a bowl was where she was gonna hang out so i knew i needed pics =]

I see behind a thousand lies that you try to hide
I bleed inside: you left your knife but I'm still alive
I...love the way you kill me
I love the way you watch me die
Life or death a bullet to the chest
I'd do it again...
Just when I think I've cut you out
You come with open arms to drag me down

Okay, maybe time for an update.
Maggie is totally, and annoyingly fine and back to normal. It's almost like nothing happened, though she is currently smaller than she was before. She needed to lose a bit of weight anyway.
Zoe is... fine? We stopped giving her the pills from the vet. The process was entirely too traumatic for her, and for us. We switched to some homeopathic stuff that was suggested by the guy who owns the pet food store (weird, right? But he's got a degree in nutrition for animals. What the hug, you know?) and there was an almost immediate change. While she didn't stop throwing up right away, the vomits got... easier, looser? and continued treatments managed to slow down how often she was rejecting her food. Eventually, she was only passing up bile. As of this morning: she hasn't thrown anything up in six days. She's also complete lost her appetite, but found one belong to a small equine. The three cats tore through select pieces of ham, chicken and roast beef yesterday along with 2.5 cans of wet food, and almost an entire bowl of dry food. Zoe is still skeletal a bit, but at the rate she's going, it won't be long until she's back to svelte, normal self.
Seriously, 2016 can just go hug itself now...

Another update! Zoe is not hugging eating. Not near enough. We're running on the premise that months of daily regurgitations have damaged her throat, which explains why she wants to eat, but isn't eating.
Our solution? Baby food! The high protein liquid kind! We just gave her 5 millilitres in a syringe... and the bitch just yummed it right up. Almost no fight in her once she realized we were putting food in her, and she started purring her little head off.
If we can outrun starvation, and get her throat healed up: she might just have a few years left in her.
