My living situation went to hell, and I wound up moving due to the lack of being able to stand my room mate's lover who moved in. Anyhow, I am back now, and I found out what was wrong with Streaker. The vet diagnosed him with as having pneumonia. He is on baytril right now, and is due back in next week. I was relieved to see his chest x-ray and lab work didn't show any major issues. He already sounds better, is more active, and I am very happy that my precious baby is getting well. He doesn't like taking his pills, but evil mom (me) makes sure they get swallowed. He usually pouts for a bit, but then is back looking for love again, which I can't ever get enough of of course.

Good to hear he is getting better. Have you tried the pill pockets? They worked great for me, if the pill is bigger just break it in half and put it in two. I could not believe how well they worked.

I know how that feels! Mo has to take his medication and I can hear him every morning saying 'don't put medication in my breakfast, you horrible women!' But he always has it like a good boy! Hope Streaker is back to good health very soon. Take care.

Welcome back - I'm glad Streaker is doing so much better and he's on the mend. Sorry you had a bout with a pesky room mate. Been there - done that - will never do it again! LOL Glad there seems to be light at the end of your tunnel tho! xoxo

I did try the pill pockets and they only worked for the first pill and then... he was on to me. Horrible mom that I am, daring to medicate him. He is on baytril now, and has been diagnosed with pneumonia. He goes back in to the vet tomorrow, so hopefully we get a good report.
