2 weeks ago, Mr. Frappe got sick. He had severe diarrhea & we had to find him a foster home so he could get better. He was taken to Millersport Small Animal Hospital in Getzville, NY to confirm his condition & for treatment. He was started on antibiotics, given fluids & cleaned up.
His foster happens to be my Mother in Law who lives close by, but fairly new to the cat world. Frappe needed to be pilled twice a day & this was not something my Mother in Law was comfortable with, so I would go over to give him his meds. She has him in her upstairs bathroom – free reign of the room – and we lined the floor with newspapers until his condition got better.
I have pilled many cats in my day, but Frappe is the most difficult kitty by far! He doesn’t lash out – bite or scratch – but trying to keep his head still & mouth open long enough to pop the pill down his throat is tricky! He’s a strong boy at 12 lbs. & could easily do a lot of damage if he wanted to . Luckily, he is a mellow kind of guy & hasn’t tried to bite or scratch me once!
Today, my Mother in Law tried pilling him on her own for the first time. The last time I had been over, he was getting a *little* more cooperative & I asked her to try today. He’s starting to get used to the routine & should be easier to manage. She was successful! Yea!
Frappe is doing much better & will be ready to come back to the store in a few days. He’ll still need his meds once a day for another week or so, but totally manageable without the issues he had before. Finding his forever home is the main objective!
Frappe is a big, beautiful 2 year old Manx mix who is very social & has a lot of love to give. His adoption fee for the month of December is only $25 (reg. $75). He is up to date on all of his vaccines, tested negative for FIV & Feuluk & has been neutered.
