Sunday Selfies: Week #178

Today is the first anniversary of my Gotcha Day. Unfortunately we won’t be doing much celebrating, as I am not feeling up to it. And I told Mom that I wouldn’t take a selfie right now, as my eyes are not looking very good. So I selected a selfie I took on Christmas Day to share with you. I hope you like it.

Do you like how I have the outline of a star right on my nose? I think that means I am special and makes me even cuter than I already am.

My Health

Mom said yesterday that we’d let you know more about what is going on with me. They took me to see Dr. Neel when they were picking up Sawyer after his neuter surgery. I was supposed to get my yearly vaccines and have my right eye looked at. Mom and Dad thought Sawyer may have scratched it during one of our wrestling matches.

Dr. Neel stained my eye and didn’t see any scratches, but by third eyelid and conjunctiva were red and somewhat swollen. When she took my temp (yeah, I know, that sucks), I had a fever of 105+ degrees. She did some blood work, which turned out to be okay. Then she gave me some fluids, a shot and a pill. I felt a little better.

Mom and Dad gave me more sub-Q fluids yesterday morning. (They had lots of practice with Fiona.) Unfortunately, I wasn’t very cooperative, but they did get some in me. I also had ointment put in my eyes. Mom was supposed to give me a pill last night, but nothing she tried worked. I’m no dummy!

Anyhoo, I have some sort of infection. Whatever the cause, I just have to get better. Mom says that when I am feeling well again, we can open our Secret Paws gift. It arrived on January 2. As that was the day Lily Olivia received her wings, it remains unopened. Mom hopes the promise of getting to dive into the goodies will be motivation for me to get well super quick. I also need to get well, as Mom and Dad already are stressed out from losing Lily.

If it wouldn’t be too much to ask, do you think you could send me a few purrs, prayers and POTP?

I am pretty tuckered out now, so I will let Mom finish this post.

Purrs and paw-pats, Cooper Murphy 

Hopping With Us

Last week, I said Kitties Blue and I would be making every attempt to visit and comment on the posts of everyone who entered the hop. Unfortunately Lily’s passing got me totally side-tracked. With Cooper being ill, I am not certain I will do much better this week. But the promise stands. Once we get things back to a somewhat normal routine, we will be working on that promise.
