Sick Cat, Spoiled Dog, & Sick Kids

Leo, one of our cats was very ill by last Friday. We took him to the vet, who ran a bunch of tests and kept him overnight determined that Leo ate something he shouldn't have. We don't know what, but whatever it was it was making his system shut down, basically. He sent Leo home on Saturday and we've been nursing him along all weekend. Giving him kitten formula, high-calorie paste, antibiotics, droppers of water, jars of meat (baby food), and canned cat food.

Saturday he seemed really ill and had me worried that he wasn't going to make it. As a matter of fact, Bob got up early yesterday morning (6:15 a.m.) to check on him to make sure he made it through the night. This way, Boo could have been prepared ahead of time if needed. When Bob went into the room Leo was in, the cat was sitting up and looking at him! By last night he was sitting up more and eating by himself (except for the antibiotics which he's started to refuse... but I keep winning that battle). I currently have a tentative hope that Leo will make it. This morning, Leo fought me as hard as he could when I went to give him his antibiotics and he had used the litter box during the night instead of urinating on the puppy pad we put down for him!

We finished our laminate flooring, finally! We started the project back in October, but miscalculated when we bought it and didn't get enough. Between money and time, it didn't get finished until this weekend. I was very pleased with the results, but Milo (the dog) still won't walk on it. Bob had to carry the stupid dog to bed on Saturday night so he wouldn't have to walk on the floor. We had to lay a bunch of throw rugs on the floor to get him back out of our room yesterday morning. We went to Lowe's and bought the runner-by-the foot stuff and ran it from our bedroom to the kitchen. So, my beautiful, new floor is covered back up by carpet, WAH!

Boo came down sick last Tuesday. Head cold with fever. Now it's in her chest and Clone of Bob is coming down with it. Makes life pleasant... not!
