Newsflash


Dear furriends,

it's been a while since we started our blogcation to get our mom back into studying. And boy, it's been a hard time so far! We interrupt our intense mom-monitoring for an update on how things are going.
At first, things went really bad as all of us got sick. Mom noticed that Siena was scratching her ears quite a lot so she went to the vet with her. It turned out she had a light ear infection and ear drops would solve the problem. Two days later, we had been enjoying some hours outside, Siena's right eye was teary and her third membrane had moved forward over one third of the eye. She looked horrible, like a pirate. The vet found a deep scratch in it! Fortunately, the retina wasn't hurt. That meant three times ointment and two time eye drops per day for Siena. Over almost a month and weekly vet visits her eye has healed handsomely and you can't see anything nomore. But that's not all: Mom had just visited the vet with Siena to check on her eye and had to leave on the next day's morning for a university course away. Things were arranged with the other type of human to look after us and mom was confident about Siena's progress and the other type of human giving her all this medication. So she gets up in the morning to find me having some strange sort of coughing attack, intermixed with sneezes and rolling around on the floor. She honestly thought I was going to die right away. The attack lasted several minutes. The other type of human came over right away as our mom, dissolved in tears, had to leave to get to that course. He had to take me to the vet because I started to get lethargic and I wouldn't eat. There I got stabbed with a nasty needle an they prescribed pills for me. It seems that I got a really bad cold. After our mom's return she took me with her for Siena's appointment and everything was fine. And now comes the big joke: Excactly that same night we came back from the vet Siena started sneezing! She got over it with the help of an homoeopathic treatment, but it was hard seeing her like this. She ate and played all the time though and there wasn't any yucky stuff coming out of her nosie.
Fortunately we're both well again and back to having a good time. Ehem, that's when we're not totally exhausted from helping mom study, of course.
Exhausted.
So exhausted.

Check out our DIY Busy Box. Great fun!
Towards the end of the video you can see Siena sneeze.
A pin-up shot of Siena.Mom!!! Stop that! I'm a respectable Ladycat!Chilli - The secret ingredient. Guess how much Miss Silky & Slender weighs...
Having fun with the new sisal rug. Apparently mom plans another DIY project.
Mom always laughs and laughs when Siena zooms off in the other world behind our garden wall. She caught her flying!

Things are improving slowy but surely with mom but she's a harder case than we thought. We have to remain on blogcation until we really see land again. We miss all of you terribly, but we're not completely away anyway as we visit regularly. ; )
Purrs and love your way,
Siena & Chilli

Hi guys! We've really missed you! And we're really sorry to hear that you've both been sick. Let's hope that's all for now. We do hope that your mom's dissertation work is going well because we know that we won't get to see much of her, or you two, until she's made some progress. The video was hilarious...what a surprise to see a Chili-paw come out of one of the holes in the box!

Oh wow! You've really had it rough. I'm glad to hear that both of you are feeling better now. Tell your mom to study hard and we'll be here when she gets back.

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Wow, we knows eye troubles mean lotsa vet visits. We are glad you are doing better with your eyes and colds too.

We loved all the photos, especially the plumey tailed one and the last leaping bunny one!

And your DIY Busybox movie made mewmie snort where your mom did, HaHaMeow. And a live cat inside is much more fun than a ball!

The Creek Cats said...

I am so sorry to hear about your sickness but glad that you are all better. Miss you both so much. Siena's tail is just gorgeous, as is the rest of her. The Flying Fox is funny. I do it too but SS's camera is just not good enought to catch it. Purrs to your mom on her studies.

VampyVictor said...

I am very glad you girls are feeling better.. what a rough trot. It seems to be going around, must be something in the air.
Thanks for checking in, and keep your momma on her toes :)

OH, it was so good to hear from you. Chilli we are sorry you and Siena have been sick. Being sick is no fun. Scylla & Charybdis went to the vet for their annual checkup Friday and Scylla weighs 13pounds.

Glad everyone is on the mend. We will purr that your Mom's studying goes well. ~S,S,C & F

Cory said...

See, that's what Blog withdrawal looks like...achooo!!! Seriously, we are relieved you 2 are doing much better and maybe it's best we find out after the fact because we would have been worried sick right along with you. Your busy box is awesome. We have one but it only holds toys, it can't hide another pussy cat! The flying pic of Sienna is the best ever! Purrs to you!

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Glad to see you are okay now and at least we know you are okay. So we'll see you when you get back from blogcation.
