A Rude Shot of Vitamins

Bloggie friends!!

A rude medical examination, a shot of vitamins, another of antibiotics and some anaemic looking "special diet" food and Charlie is much perkier if a little slimmer than he was!

Charlie says: I don't do diets.


Thank you for all your kind thoughts! Thank you thank you thank you! Nice vet woman thinks it's still his throat virus lingering somewhat. Oh dear. More tests soon! For now he rests.

On the otherhand! I KNOW it's so Christmas when the dreaded workplace email of where to go for our staff christmas meal circulates!! LOL!!

This year I swore not to attend but one of the nicest people I work with is organizing it so what's a girl who would rather wash her hair and dress up the kitty as one of Santa's little helpers to do?

Have a tea for two Tuesday everyone!

Hi there,
It's me, Penny, you know, the Jack Russell. I'm really pleased to know that you are perkier, now.
The silly human that I allow to live with me calls Christmas, 'Boxing Day Eve'.
Take care, Penny

Oh Charlie
WE are all relieved!

What a special diet...it's soon to be the holiday season...no starting diets until after January.

If I were you I'd catch Charlie's virus. What an original "out"!

Summer said...

Last year I bought reindeer antlers for my in-laws' Munchkin cat. He hated them so much...I'm definitely going to be putting them on one of the kittens this year...*muwhahaha*

Brian said...

I sure hope you get feeling better really soon Charlie, we're all sending you purrs...even Dad!

Ann said...

Glad to hear Charlie is on the mend.

As for the meal....just put on those party shoes and trip the light fantastic. I know it will be tough...but you can do it!

Medeia Sharif said...

Feel better, Charlie! Diets stink, they do.

Theresa Milstein said...

Poor Charlie, losing weight because he's not feeling his best. He's got all that lovely fur.

I hope you have fun at the party, even if you don't want to go. Maybe the girl isn't just nice, but she throws a mean party.

Susan Fields said...

I don't do diets, either, Charlie! Feel better soon!

Christmas will be here before we know it - yikes!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Gosh, I'm sorry Charlie is still feeling poorly. :( I hope he feels better in the morning...

Summer Ross said...

LOL, I guess your going. LOL I'm glad charlie is doing a bit better.

Melissa Gill said...

Yowza, shots and a special diet. Poor Charlie.

The Chair Speaks said...

Lots of purrs to Charlie to feel better.

fairyhedgehog said...

Oh, Kitty, you do make me laugh! If you want to wash your hair and dress up Charlie, go for it! You don't exist for other people and of course they'll miss you but I'm sure they'll cope!

Poor old Charlie-puss. I hope the vitamins and stuff make him feel better real soon. I didn't know cats could get throat viruses.

Kea said...

Paws crossed for Charlie! Was it a B-12 shot? That's commonly given, especially for IBD cats. Let's hope the vet is correct and this does the trick. I'll add Charlie to the Fuzzy Tales Purrs Page!

I am NOT looking forward to Xmas with co-workers. We typically don't do much ourselves, maybe lunch out or over to the boss's place for an evening, so it's tolerable. Trouble is, though, all we have in common is work, really, and it's not much fun to socialize outside of the office. However, it's the stupid potluck I'm dreading and I'm sure the floor will end up having one....shudder.

The Monkeys said...

We're relieved that Charlie is feeling better and we'll continue to purr that he is well and doesn't have to go through many more tests!

Boonie S said...

Pleased that Charlie’s receiving the attention that he deserves.
Workplace Christmas meals and celebrations prove that “No ‘ell” is a misleading statement.

Have a nice day, Boonie

Simon Kewin said...

Get well soon Charlie. I'd take it easy if I were you ...

Bossy Betty said...

Charlie! I know if goes against your nature, but try to follow the doctor's orders. Please? We want you to be happy and healthy!

wncmountainliving said...

Sending lots of purrs to Charlie - hope this does the trick. We just got notice our party is Dec 5 - I really like all the folks I work with and this is fun to see them all together.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope poor Charlie didn't have to have his temperature taken - why do the torturers have to shove it right up there when surely tucked under a pawpit would be more satisfactory! We hope he will soon be feeling better - just think Charlie you can eat as many treats as you like to make you strong again.
The dreaded Christmas work lunch/dinner Jenn - passing round the Christmas cards to colleagues you won't see again until the next one! Can't you throw a sickie?

Manzanita said...

I understand your dilemma. Some people are just sooo nice. And you feel like a heel if your thoughts are contrary to theirs. Why are some people sooo nice? Why aren't they all mean and grungy so they don't put out the guilts? Good cheers to Charlie. You too, my dear! :)

Ellie said...

I know exactly how you feel, Charlie. I didn't have a 'rude examination' but they took three test tubes of my blood this morning. Rude people! You give them what-for next time you see them, which hopefully won't be for a while.

Aah. . .the Christmas workplace party; enough to strike fear into the everyone, including the janitor. Mt advice: find the craziest outfit and drink plenty. Just don't ask for the photographs afterwards. LOL.

Elizabeth Mueller said...

How cute! Take a picture for us. I'd love to see a Santa Helper kitty. ;)

Btw, I hope Charlie feels better soon. Poor thing. :(

notesfromnadir said...

Charlie needs his rest right now if his diet has changed. Sure hope he's feeling better & can go outside once it stops raining. According to Talli, the weather in your city sounds like being indoors is a great idea!

Well, if a person you like is organizing the Christmas party then maybe it'll be a fun event! :)

Talli Roland said...

So glad Charlie's feeling better!

Office Christmas parties are the devil's work, designed to try to make us all loathe Christmas. I just loathe office Christmas parties!

Still, if you can dress as Santa's helper, that should be fun... right?

Jackee said...

I hope Charlie gets better soon! Christmas parties already? Man, I'm behind!

Rene said...

Get well soon, Charlie! And don't forget to pour on the guilt from your traumatic trip.

Ginger Jasper said...

Charlie I am glad there has been some improvement. Mum says she wonders if we have the same kind of virus thingy.. Keep getting better my friend.. Hugs GJ xx

Marg said...

Charlie, we are so glad you are getting a little better or at least we think you are. All those shots should make you 100%. And the special diet too. Hope the new diet tastes good.
Take care both of you.

Hart Johnson said...

*huggles Charlie* glad he's on the mend!

And don't you HATE THAT? When You'd rather avoid the whole thing but it's somebody NICE counting on you?

Amy said...

Charlie is a beauty! I am sorry to read he is sick. I'm glad he agreed to see the Dr. and is now on some meds. My cats are passing around a very sneezy cold. It seems to be moving from 2 cats to the next 2 and so on.

I hope you have fun at your office Christmas party.

Feel better Charlie!

best wishes for a speedy recovery

Charlie, I don´t do diets too... and we have body in shape, ok??? Kisses dear!

The Teacher's Pets said...

Charlie,
You know your vet and your mom want you to be healthy and slim and even more handsome than ever, right? Well, that's why the vet gave you a special diet so be sure to follow it because we want the best for you!
By the way, please tell your mom that I was thrilled that she liked my post about how to get yeast out of dog's ears and please tell her that cats get yeast infections too and she can use my tips on you too!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

So glad to hear that it is just a case of a lingering throat virus that has Charlie down. I did think he looked like he had lost a little weight, but not to worry, I know he'll gain it all back when he is feeling better.

I can't believe thew Christmas countdown is almost here! Slow down world -- I can't keep up!

"A rude medical examination, a shot of vitamins, another of antibiotics and some anaemic looking "special diet" food" ...
yeah, that works for me, too.
