nels sez: mom's puny again . . .

that's what they say in the ozarks when you're not feelin' well--you're puny. and boy, is she efur. it's that dumb bronchitis again. she coughed for a whole day and most of a night and din't get any sleep, then went to the bean vet for medicine, and now she's slept about 18 hours in the last day. so we're on catblanket duty again. her ribzes hurt from the effort of barkin' an' she needs her lungs for breathin' so it's hard to find a cuddlespot she can use! she is just zausted from coughin' so much and needsta take it slow and quiet fer a day or two. so far this mornin' she has got up, had a glassa juice, a cuppa coffee, carried a load o'clothes to the washing box, checked e-mails, and now is going to the reclining chair, where we can relax wif her. she'll try to catch up tomorrow on our bloggie! oh, yes, and edmund sez "hey" to a special little kitty out there. hmmmmm. wonder who that is?

Ohhh, poor Meowers' Mum. Purrs to her for a speedy recovery. I am also furry good at cuddling on the duvet to help sick humans recover.

Oh no! Purrs to your mom! I think it must be the change in the weather this time of year, The Big One had that too. It took him FOREVER to get over it'cause he wouldn't stay home.

You keep her pinned down so she gets better fast!

We hopes yur Mom feels better. Make sure she keeps getting watered. Change and clean her bowl frequently. Give her lots of headbutts but don't let her sneeze on you.

We hopes your Mom is feelin' better soon! Lay on her arms and legs and pin her down. Ours has been coughin' for two weeks and has been furry tired 'cause she hasn't been able to get enough rest.
(She says she thinks she's finally feelin' better now).

Blue Kitty here. You and my bean are in the same predicament, apparently. Though I would never deign to rest up on her blankets if she's anywhere near them. I leave that for that irritating little sot, Tubby. I just got over a bloody snotty cold, myself. My bean had to keep putting pink squirty stuff down my mouth.

Move over BK, this is Getzger with something MIGHTY important to say. Wait...squirrel...oh, yeah, just a minute. Okay, Yeah, my wonderful ebulient being with the delicious armpits is also barking like a seal. I think it's the last of the beans, though, because the noisier ones have all had it already. But she's not been down much. She keeps walking toward the door and I'm ever hopeful that she will let me out. I keep telling her but she just tells me to hush.

Tubby says: Get well. Wish I were there to lie on your blankets because no amount of coughing will disturb my undying devotion. I just slide around. I have that sort of skin, you know.

Sprinky...could not be bothered for comment.
