The Cats are Sick

They stopped eating. Since it was both of them I thought they must have eaten something bad. I took them to the Cat Hospital here in Durham, they took blood, but they said everything came back fine. Meanwhile, I got them to eat a little babyfood.

I called my vet, The Cat Practice in New York. They said it could be an unspecified virus, and to keep them on the babyfood for a couple of days. As long as they ate that and didn’t throw up, they’d probably be fine. This morning they wouldn’t eat it, and Finney threw up.

I can live with a lot of things, but not anything bad having to do with my cats. I’ve got messages into both vets, and I cancelled my ride to the library.
