Photo Hunters: Delicious

Delicious

For some reason, Dragonheart seems to find Merlin's ears delicious!

Update on Dragonheart: Dragonheart is doing much better. He took his antibiotic yesterday without any fuss. We were back at the vet this morning for IV fluids, and everything went well. His took his fluids without any fuss, and his temperature seems to be back to normal. The vet removed the IV feed today, so hopefully that will be the end of it. Dragonheart's blood work came back normal, except for slightly elevated leukocytes (white blood cells) which indicate his body is fighting off some sort of infection. But everything else was normal.

Dragonheart is a little quieter than normal now, but is eating, drinking, and using the litterbox, and even playing a little bit. So hopefully he is on the mend. We do have three more days of antibiotics to give him.

Thanks to all of you for your good thoughts, purrs and prayers. We all greatly appreciate them.

Boy am I glad you are feeling better, Dragonheart! I was a little bit worried. I wanted to try Pixie's ear to see if it was delicious, but she would not let me.

I am so glad you are better - all this sicky stuff is terrible!

Kaz's Cats said...

Yay! Great news dude! Good to hear that you're on the mend. You did really well to leave the IV feed in your leg for so long so you could get the extra fluids - we don't we could have been so good.

That's a nice photo of you with Merlin. Sometimes we give each other a wash, but only one of us really likes to wash ears, heads, furs etc - and their initials are Tasha...And I (Gypsy) love it, for a while, anyway.

It's great that you two get on so well,

Purrs & Headbutts

Poor Dragonheart...maybe you should stop trying to eat Merlin! We'z still purring and purraying fur yoo. We really don't like it when our frends are sick.

Luna said...

Dear friend Dragonheart, I´m so glad to hear that you feel better.

That photo is too funny. It looks very very cute !

All the best to you, Dragonheart purr, purr, purr...

Fox's Mom said...

Deepest empathy to Merlin on the ears thing, Gonzo thinks I grew the pair 'specially fur him and frankly sometimes the fascination is annoying.

But I'm glad to see you feeling so much better, Dragonheart! I read about your fever at the Blogosphere and came to check on you. Don't play too hard, until you feel 100%!

Mozart (OK, and Gonzo, too)

jenianddean said...

Boy oh boy! We are glad to hear you are on the mend. Maggie thinks Huggy Bear's ear are delicious also. I don't care for ears. :)

We will all be sending you purrs!

Sassy Cat said...

I just found out that Dragonheart wasn't feelin good and stopped over. I am glad to see that things are getting better. Hope tomorrow is even a better day.

Karl & Ruis said...

Antibiotics sometimes make you feel weird so hopefully that's all that this is. Boy - we are sure glad he is better! That was a dangerous fever he had there!
This picture is so cute - it really shows that Merlin is actually smaller than Dragonheart - he looks like a real kitten there!
I -Karl - used to clean Anastasia's ears for hours!!! Emil doesn't let me - he gets too excited and starts moving around.
We are still having lots of fun in Antarctica! A new post every day!!!

TT said...

Wow Dragonheart you do's like to clean Merlins ears! I bet you do a good job too!

We are all so glad that you are feeling better now. We will still purr and send you healing thoughts.

Skeeter And LC said...

Good PhotoHunter choice. "Delicious" is whatever you think it is. ;)

We are glad you is started to feel better, Dragonheart.

BTW, we think the new blog title is great. "Chat of Sphynx" and "House Sphynx"! Very clever... :) Did we miss a 3rd meaning?

Team Tabby said...

We are glad to hear Dragonheart is much better now. He and Merlin have become close buddies quite quickly.
Cute 'delicious' picture today.
