Frootbat Friday

Pierro:
yep there are two frootbats in this house now
I like Miles! I have not met him formally... but when mom opens his door to go inside, he tries to run out of there like his room is on fire!

I like to watch him under the door and listen to him.
We eat our foods together on either side of the door sometimes.
****Mom is going to take a big bag of my poops in to the vet and let them play with my poops, just to see if I have any giardia in them, if that comes back perfect, then the next step is trading blankies. Then -- perhaps Miles can come downstairs in the prison box.

Miles:
Get me out of here!!!!

Happy Friday and Happy Week-end bronkbronks

****Poop update :-(
This is Rosemary speaking: yes, it is that disappointing that I have to barge in on Pierro's bloggie to explain such news.
Pierro still has a little bit of giardia (they found only two cysts! this is far less cysts than past examinations). I feel so absolutely terrible for him. He is the most adorable and sweet kitty ever EVER. So, my vet, at my urging, called CurlieSwirlie Teri's vet/employer, Dr. Janice Ellison and got some good information, and they decided together on a plan. As you might know, Dr. Ellison is very familiar with Miles. Miles has been thoroughly examined by this vet since birth and also treated Miles when he and his brothers, Bosco Zeuss and Carlos got that tummy bug last week which delayed the homecoming of three kittens...
here is the latest: Wedgewood Pharmacy is making medicine for Pierro. A new medicine. It is called Ponazuril. He will have to take it for three days, while he is taking this, I will do exactly what I have done over the past few months (my house is taking on a faded look in every nook and crevice, perhaps I should weather and distress my furnishings as well, haha) scrub and scrub and scrub everything everyday over and over.

This makes me sad. We love Pierro. He came from a very bad breeder. There, I said it. I never thought it, I never wanted to believe it because I believe everyone is good and honest.
I was wrong. Still, I never ever regret falling in love with Pierro, finding him (Caesar found him for me) and bringing him into our home. Pierro is a gentle and sweet kitty. When we brought him home to Princess two years ago, he was just such a gentle and mild natured boy. He has never changed even going thorough all of these struggles. He is so lovable!

I am sorry we have not visited blogs. We will try to come and see your lovely blogs I love them, all of you, every one of your blogs. I am so busy. Blizzie is getting better she is in a cast now and using crutches, we have been blessed with purrs and prayers for her surgery and recovery and we are thankful to all of you. taking care of her was a lot of work and I am an olde nurse from dino-days. Funny thing we have been using hubby's deluxe office chair (he works at home) for a wheel chair to whizz her over to the bathroom and also three times I washed her hair at the kitchen sink with her in that office chair, tilted back sitting on two more pillows, trash bags everywhere to catch the splashes... hilarious
I could type up a novel here... but I will let you know that we are going to beat this mean bug and get it out of Pierro and it is going to take time. Sadly, Miles will be confined and I will probably have to bathe him (this actually sounds fun, and I am beginning to think he needs a bath anyway) and Pierro three days straight.
If my hands do not crumble and fall off I will come and visit with Pierro. He misses all of you because every one of you are just the greatest friends and the nicest playmates ever!
Friendship is unnecessary,
like philosophy, like art....
It has no survival value;
rather it is one of those things
that give value to survival.

Stacy Hurt said...

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Pierro is lucky to have you looking after him -- that sounds like a lot of work you're going through to make him better!

Karen Jo said...

I hope that the new medicine works and that Pierro is all well very soon. Herman sends his best healing purrs. I feel for Miles. Herman didn't even like the idea of being confined when I first adopted him, but I could let him out.

We're so glad you found Pierro too, he's one of our very favorite kitty bloggers (we LOVE his bonks!) I bet he's happy every single day to have such a great family.

Au and Target said...

You're doing a great job there - even if the kitties probably won't agree with the bath thing! We're purring all will be well in a few days.

michico*Adan said...

Pierro must be a really lovely cute good friend and lovely company~
I hope everything will be good happens on Pierro~~


Big Big hugs to you and Pierro, and Miles~

Parker said...

Pierro is a lucky kitty to have had Caesar send him to you!
(((hugs)))

Daisy said...

Oh rats! I'm sorry those dirty bugs are still inside sweet Pierro. Even though he came from a Not Good breeder, I am so happy Caesar sent him to you because Pierro is so adorable.

Miles, have fun chillin' out for a few more days. Bronkbronk!

Wonderful frootbats, both!

Those little intestinal pests are just the hardest thing to clear up completely. It will all get sorted in the end, and the boys will be happy together!

We love Luna said...

Kea said...

Rosemary,

First, ((((hugs)))). You have a lot on your plate!

I hope the new meds work for Pierro and that will be the end of it. Fingers and paws crossed!

Miles is such a cutie, I hope he gets the run of the house soon.

And it's great to read Blizzie is healing well, lots of universal Light to her also!

Hi Rosemary - I bet you feel as though you are on a treadmill at the moment. What a shame Pierro is still infected but hopefully this new medication will clear it all up very soon. Mum says she can imagine what your hands must be like - you'll have to treat yourself to a manicure when you have finished scrubbing and scrubbing. We are pleased to hear that Blizzie is progressing - we can imagine you pushing her round in her Dad's chair pretending she is on the dodgem cars ha ha!!
Mum has only had us here for 6 months and knows how difficult getting through doors without paws escaping is.
Luv from Hannah, Lucy and Mum Sue xxx

Jacqueline said...

We're very sorry to hear sweet Pierro is still ill and hope this round of meds works this time!...What a major job for you Rosemary; that is so much extra work to do on top of everything else...We know you guys can't wait to let Miles out and live with the whole family...Your boys are precious and beautiful; best of luck with them and with Blizzie's recovery as well...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Teri and the cats of Furrydance said...

Oh my Cat, this is disappointing mews! Pierro's mewmie emailed me, apologizing for sending bad news to me while I am on vacation...so I called her up and we chatted and she felt better when we hung up.

Pierro is getting better, and the vet I work for and Pierro's vet put their heads together and even went researching on VIN and let's keep our fingers crossed this new drug works.

I think because Pierro came to them already infected with this parasite and it took so long to finally diagnose (I think I helped get them on the right track with my experience and advice as one of my cats came to me with Giardia and I had a very hard time eradicating it--having to treat all the cats in the house, the daily litterbox changes, baths etc) and Pierro's intestinal tract is probably damaged and healing still and the parasite is harder to get rid of because of that.

But, Rosemary is being a wonderful cat nurse, and as hard as it is, keeping Pierro and Miles separated til they get this bug gone for good!

They have a whole life together and it will be worth the wait!

The Meezers or Billy said...

Hang in there Pierro family... Soon this madness will be over and y'all can resume normal (ahem) life...

Enjoy the long weekend!
:-)

DailyGs said...

Oh, dear, Pierro! You may have come from a Not So Great breeder, but you ARE great! Your Mommy will get rid of those nasty germies soon! And then you and your new brother Miles, who is absolutely adorable, will begin your life of brotherly fun and games and snuggles!

Hugs to you, Rosemary. Momma says she knows how much work it is, especially with Blizzie's recovery, too.

Katnip Lounge said...

It always all comes at once, doesn't it?
How would Pierro react to being confined to a room while he's being treated? You'de have less cleaning that way...
I LOL-ed visualizing the hair-washing scene! I'm glad your Daughter is hobbling aroud now.
Don't fret about the visiting. Take a deep breath, and go with the "now" of your life. You'll never have these moments again, so savor every one, good & not so good.

When it rains, it pours! But think, sunny skies are always not too far behind! We're glad to hear Blizzie is kinda mobile! Still purraying she heals fast. Sorry about your poops and hoping the new medicine helps you too! Miles seems like he's busting at the seams trying to meet you!!!

Brian said...

You don't have to worry about visiting us, you just take care of the sweet Pierro...and the cutie Miles too!

Eric and Flynn said...

Pierro, you are the luckiest boy to have such a good mum working so hard to get rid of those nasty bugs for you. We hope the new medicine works and you can soon enjoy games and snuggles with Miles.

Junior and Orion said...

We will be purring our hearts out for Pierro. Poor boy....but it sounds like he is being a trooper.

Pierro, we are sorry to hear that you have a bad bug. Hope you feel better really soon!

Your new brother Miles is adorable. Hope the meeting is a good one.

TK & Squashies said...

Oh Rosemary you sure have your hands full. We continue to purr for Blizzie's return to full heath, and we adds Pierro to our list.

Don't forget to take care of yourself in the middle of all you do, without you a lot of things will fall. So you have to keep yourself healthy. REST when you can.

We hope things get back to normal soon.

I hope you get to meet face to face really soon. Mum did the same with us, kept us apart until the vet man gave the all clear. Then it was a slow introduction.

Charlemagne and Tamar said...

We're sorry that Pierro is still sick with the icky G bug. You're a very busy lady, Mom Rosemary, and we think you do a great job with the kitties and Blizzie and everything.

Sending purrs for everyone,
