we got da funk....

In case mom's life wasn't interesting enough, the pepper boys were acting kind of funky, so they got to take a trip to the v-e-t yesterday....

Jalapeno charmed the vet - she has a thing for tuxies. He was actually the one acting the worst over the weekend and had a fever at the office. The other two boys didn't have a fever, but Serrano was acting funky. No real diagnosis - just watch them and make sure they are eating.

Everyone got out to play a little and the tech had put some catnip on the floor for Mist - who ignored it. Poblano on the other hand managed to get a minor contact high.

Mom had the v-e-t check Mist's ears and she has a yeast infection so she is getting treated 2x per day for the next 5 days.

Mom is treating Emma for ringworm - just in case. Other than the spot on her ear, she is running around like a nut. She has gotten more and more active in the last week or so - guess finally weighing over 2 pounds makes a difference. And even if that what it is, it is treatable......

Ahhhh the life of rescue - snot, weird fever, itchy ears and a fungus among us. Oh well - at least everyone is cute. :)


  1. I do the same thing when the cats don't seem right, I haul them in to the vet only to be told to watch them and make sure they keep eating! Better safe than sorry I say.

  2. I love black cats!
    My touchstone is always food. Even with my husband. Drives him crazy

  3. Sounds like you have your hands full! But you're right. Having such cuties does make a difference (in a good way)!

  4. "A fungus among us." HA roo roo roo.
    Sure hope everycat gets HEALTHY soon!
    Play bows,

  5. everee one IZ cute....N we hope everee one ta getz ta feelin WAY better...reeeeeeely quik.....N dont for get...a trout a day keeps de vet a way...


  6. LOL.. don't you just hate that diagnosis of "watch and make sure they eat".. like you would do anything else..

    Your life is starting to sound a bit like mine, but if you could keep the ringworm to yourself I'd REALLY appreciate it *knock wood* I've never had it at the house..

  7. Oh, THAT kind of funk is no fun. We sure hope everyone is better eral soon.

  8. At our house, too, funk means vet trip. Like you say, better safe than sorry...especially with wee ones and seniors! White Dog woos that every one is in full health by the weekend.

  9. Wooee...that's a lot of semi-sick kitties! We hopes efuryone is better soon.

    Mom says cuteness certainly helps.

    Sasha, Sami, & Saku

  10. It is a good thing they're cute! Goodness, you got a full load of problem kitties at the moment! We think you should take a chocolate break!

  11. Oh how dear they look. Mommy said she'd love to visit bunches of kitties but I told her not to get any wise ideas about bringing them home!!!


We love to hear from you.....
