A little Bit Worried Wednesday

IMG_2065aI need to stretch out. I have been napping and purring at the Woman as much as I can.  She got up yesterday morning and could hardly open her eye.

She went to see the very nice vet that the Male uses (he must be nice if he can put up with the MALE!) and he said he thought it was shingles.  He sent her to an equally nice opthamalogist who worked next door and he thinks it’s bacterial.  At any rate, she’s got the hard hitting drugs for both anti-viral and anti-bacterial to cover all bases.  The eye doc wants to see her again to make sure it doesn’t get into the eye seeing the infection appears to be in the bone around the eye (the bone on the right side of her face is all red but not the left).

Her eye is opened a bit wider this evening but we will see…. This is a lot of work for a cat…

Umm yes–in cases like this the Woman will take antibiotics… but she is upping her probiotics as well…


  1. In cases like these, it’s important that we all fire up our purr motors so your mom gets better soon!


  2. We hope the tablets work and the Woman’s eye is soon better. You are doing a good job by stretching out and purring at her.

  3. You and the Woman will have to have a lot of patience if it turns out to be shingles, though it sounds like the treatment has started early, which is good. A close friend of Mom’s had shingles earlier this year, much in the same place – head and side of the face and round eye. She had to continue ont he anticirals for months. Stayng out of the sun was very important for her too, as it made things worse. So avoid Florida vacations!

    Chey, you and Gemini must be very very good and patient, and not demanding till she is all better.

  4. Oh no! I hope your mom’s eye is all better soon. Keep those strong purrs going.

  5. Oh noes!! We are purring and purring and purring for the woman’s hurty eye! We sure hope the medicine works for her and she is all better very soon!

  6. Lots of purrs from me for your mum. Having the sickies and your eyes all messed up is not a good thing. Take the drugs and eat healthy.

  7. Still purring for the Woman … shingles is no fun, and neither is a bacterial infection. Feel better, Chey’s Woman!

  8. Shingle is a very ouchy thing to have from what I hear. What I don’t get is why a person will sit still while someone else nails the shingles onto ’em. Go figure. I hope the drugs work and make her feel better really fast.

  9. We hope the woman’s eye gets better fast…that sure doesn’t sound like much fun at all!

  10. OH NOES! We are sending lots of purrs and purrayers yer mom’s way to hope she gits all better!

  11. Ouch that sounds nasty! We hope she gets better soon. Keep purring, Chey!

  12. Oah My!
    Sounds awful!!!
    You are so brave to take care your mommy!!!!!
    I am praying and purring for her still!

  13. PURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! We hope she gets better soon ~ not least ‘cos it could effect your blogging time!!!!!!!

  14. Sometimes humans need their snooze time. FAZ

  15. How awful! Sending loud purrs for the Woman. Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  16. Oh noes! That is a terrible place to have the shingles! Our mom had it earlier this year on her back but caught it before it started spreading really bad.

    Take good care of your mom! We see her big toesie in that picture. teeheehee!

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    (((HUGS))) and purrs to your mom.

  17. Well, it appears you have your work cut out for you, Chey. You know what they say – “No rest for the weary”.

  18. Oh, shingles? That sounds like No Fun. We will purr and purr for your Mom to heal quickly.

  19. Your Woman has my sympathy. Shingles is nasty and ouchy. Keep purring for her. Simba and Alfie are conspicuous by their absence at the moment, but I’m sure they will purr for her later! :)xxx

  20. P.S. My smiley has moved… What the…? Let’s see if this one stays put… :)xxx

  21. I’m sorry your mom got a hurty eyeball. I hope it gets all better soon!

  22. I’m so sorry to hear about your mama! I hope she is able to enjoy her Thanksgiving in spite of this. But most of all, I hope whatever it is clears up without any further problems. It sounds quite painful.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

  23. Yikes, I hope she feels better right away!
    Happy Thanksgiving!!!

  24. Chey, we know that shingles is a bad thing, so we are purraying for your Mom.
