The Beowulf update

Beowulf has been lethargic all weekend. I know cats are supposed to sleep all the time but there's a difference between the typical catnap and barely opening his eyes when I would pick him and move him from my bed to the couch or from the couch to in front of his food. Which he had no interest in.

I was hoping it was his allergies but it seems to be something more serious. Apparently on top of his lethargy he is running a fever, he has dropped weight and is a bit dehydrated. (Not surprised at the last one...he hasn't wanted to eat or drink all weekend.) He also hasn't been doing a very good job of grooming himself for over the past month...(I wasn't too worried about that one since I had planned on busting out the clippers in a few weeks.)...but it's indicative of something more than just a bug over the weekend.

So...they are keeping him today and overnight to observe and will be running some bloodwork on him to see if anything shows up there.

Sigh. I hate being at work and not having him here.

Oh man, I'm sorry! I hope they find something minor, easily treatable!

I'm sorry :-(. I hope the vet can find and fix whatever is making him sick.

I'm sorry to hear this...and being a "mommy" myself, I do understand. Just keep in mind, kitties get sick just like humans do. He's most likely got something that will be treatable with anti-biotics and hydration (one of my cats had to have a kitty IV in his paw, for dehydration.) I hope he is back to his frisky self in no time. I will be thinking of you both!

Aww, that sucks. It's just not the same when they're not around you. Hope he's better and back to his superior self soon!

Sorry to hear he is not feeling good. I hope they are able to find what it wrong and make him feel all better.

Poor guy. I hope he's better soon. I think the world would be a lot fairer if nice cats never get sick. :).

I hope the big guy is feeling better soon. I can understand your worry, so I'm sending you good vibes, too.
