Before I show my selfie, Mom asked me to fill you in on what’s going on at our house. Holy carp…2018 continues to be one sucky year. We’d all like to turn the calendar back to 2017. Calista Jo is now sick. She was rushed off to the vet office today with a badly swollen and infected right eye. Mom had to put a warm, wet compress on it to help get the eye open. Her fever was not as high as Cooper Murphy’s was…only 104 degrees. She got sub-q fluids and an injection, and is now on the same antibiotics and antibiotic eye ointment as Cooper Murphy, who has two more days of medication. C.J. is now the one being confined to the living room.
As we did with Cooper Murphy, Mom, Dad and Kitties Blue are asking for purrs, prayers and POTP for Calista Jo. But more importantly, will you please pray that this infection doesn’t work it’s way through our entire fur family. Thank you.

Mom, Dad and all the Kitties Blue are sending a message to a very special friend, Mom Sophie, AKA LP, from Critters in the Cottage. Today is her birthday. We wish her much love, joy and blessings as she celebrates. Hope you can drop by her blog and wish her a happy birthday.
Thanks for joining us again today. We appreciate all the love and support.
Purrs and paw-pats, Astrid
We are sad to hear that sweet Calista Jo is now unwell with an eye infection. We know it sucks for her to be isolated from the others but that is best for everyone and only temporary for her until she is well again. We hope that is very soon! Also, we are still keeping Cooper Murphy in our thoughts and sending lots of love to him.
Thank you for the birthday wishes, Janet. We thanked you on our blog today 🙂
Sending lots of continued love and support to everyone and that includes your Mama,
Sophie and the critters in the cottage xo

Timmy and Family
On no! We send all of our purrs and prayers to Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy. It is terrible that this infection is running through some of the family. The stress of needing to get different kitties to the vet is something we have been dealing with so know how it feels.
Love, Purrs and Prayers to all
Timmy, Dad Pete and Family
I’m so sorry to hear of all the ailments at your house with your precious kitties. Purrs and Prayers being sent your way for a speedy recovery from the Zee/Zoey gang.
We are so sorry to hear that you are going through such a horrible time.
Sending you healing thoughts and purrs xx
Athena and Marie
We’re just SAD that the totally mean eye infection Sawyer had is working it’s way around the house there. We hope CJ is the last one to have to deal with it – at least we know that the Blue Hospital is well equipped and willing to work with patients there to get them fixed up ASAP. Hope that’s the END of it though…..for all of your sakes!! Happy Sunday to everyone……….
So sorry to hear that Calista Jo is sick now, KittiesBlue. Seems that nothing every comes in one 🙁 Sending lots of Healing Pawkisses your way and Purrayers to feel better soon <3 <3 <3
Miss Janet our best wishes are heading your way and we will give the infection a black eye. (I would say this is stronger terms but Mum says this is a public forum and even infections need to beaten to a pulp quietly and politely).
Get well soon Calista Jo and Sawyer.
* nosetaps *
Sendin purrs for Calista Jo!
I’m sending lots of purrs to Calista Jo – and more purrs to keep this infection away from everyone else! You guys don’t need to start off 2018 any worse than it already has.
Oh, poor Calista Jo! That really sucks. Trixie is prone to eye infections so we know!
Purraying it gets better quickly and doesn’t spread to the others.
We are sending loads of purrs, purrayers, and POTP to you. sweet Calista Jo. Seems like 2018 is off on the wrong paw for several of us. HISS!!
We are sending lots and lots of purrs and prayers and we did our “make it better” dance so rest assured, things will be okay.
Noodle and crew
Oh, no. Did Sawyer bring in a bug? It does not take much to upset balance with a herd. I know. Get well soon. I will Bee back later…❤
Oh Dear! You poor guys! I will add Calista Jo to my purrayer list and will keep purraying for Cooper Murphy! Its awful when everyone gets sick.
And Astrid you are beautiful – even if your airplane ears are showing!
We are also sending loads of love and strength.
Purrs Marv and Mommy

I’m glad Cooper Murphy is feeling better. I will send POTP to Calista Jo and I hope that infection clears out of your house.
Oh no! We are so sorry to hear ’bout the eye infection. I had one of those. It was not as bad as yours but I had to take drops and other stuff too. Sending purrs to your household and you!
That’s a nice selfie, Astrid. Even with the airplane ears. 😉
We’re really sorry to hear that Calista Jo is sick now, too. We will purr and pray for her healing, and for protection and health for you all.
