A morning ritual........

Hello everyone.. I thought I would show you what I have to endure every morning.. Sheesh it is just not good but mum and dad say I have to have these meds to keep me going So I suppose I have to... They have found out that it seems less stressful if just dad gives me them as I seem calmer that if mum is holding me.I just sit there close to dad. But no matter how secretive they are and that they don't speak a word, whenever dad goes to mix them I quickly get behind the sofa. Dad just waits and when I walk out he scoops me up..

Ready for the off....

Yuk....

Clean up the dribbles.....

Chin skritches between...

Sweet talk and hugs...

I usually sit and sulk for a little while just so they know .... I am though really good and don't bite and scratch... The worst part is that they have found that it is better to give my appetite pill separate and a little later so I get that one shoved in straight as it is about an hour later.. Its just so not fair... But hey.... It is keeping me going so I should not grumble....
Mum has two more late shifts with on call then has booked a few off..So see you all soon....

Much love and hugs..... GJ xxxx

You've a very good mancat about your meds, GJ, we're impressed. We know it's no fun, but are glad you're taking them!

ZOOLATRY said...

I don't know, Jasper ... me thinks grumblin' and groanin' is good, I mean, let those humans know how you really feel about all this stuff! (I sure did when I had to take all those yukky meds lately.)
And as for hiding behind the sofa, I'm really good at hiding, so maybe we can secretly share some "best hidey places"; you tell me yours, I'll tell you mine ...
Love, Zoey

Cat said...

SASS....Sammy Andy Shelly Sierra said...

Sweet GJ, we are so sad that you have to endure the indignity of the meds, but if it's helping you keep going, it's definitely worth it.

We love you!!!!!!!!!!

This is one case, GJ where "yuk" is a really good thing. So keep on being a good boy!

You are very good to take your meds like a good boy, Ginger Jasper. Mom wishes you could teach the little bipeds here how to be good about taking their meds too.

Hope Mum gets some relaxing time when she is off.

Jenna and Sissy said...

You are such a good kitty, GJ. We are glad to take your medications so well. You should see us if anyone tries to give us meds!

Bellen said...

Taking medicine is never very fun, Ginger Jasper. No matter how advanced doctors think they are, they still can't get medicine to taste decently. But it's helping you, so you must take it. We want you to stay around for a long time.

Rene said...

We think you are being very brave and good to take those pills. Your mom and dad know that it's best for you, even if not fun.

Old Kitty said...

Oh dear sweet lovely GJ!! Me and Charlie's hearts are swelling seeing you like so. You are so so so so gorgeous and good and just wonderfully brave! You have the bestest mum and dad ever too! We know it's yucky and scary to have these meds but gorgeous GJ - it's all good for you. Hang on in there gorgeous GJ!! Take care

Gattina said...

Poor boy, even if it's a bad moment for you it helps !
Cats are terrible, when I had to give a shot to Rosie for a week, she new exactly when I had the syringe behind my back, even if I made my most innocent face ! She hid behind the sofa. Without syringe she didn't run away, They must feel it !

The Cat From Hell said...

What! No Claws! No Hissing! No teeth! You is one cool cat!
Looking good GJ

Punapippuri said...

Oh GJ the pictures say it all - you are so patient and helpful. but we know you have to hide to make the point.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

You are like me. You know something is up. The Woman finds that she would have to hold onto meds until I was ready for attention and then grab me quickly and get it over with! I hate being medicated too but we are glad you are doing well with yours-- purrs.

mayziegal said...

know it's not any fun but it's for the best. You're doing a real good job taking your medicines, GJ. MUCH better than my Sisfur Abby was when my mom had to give her some Annie Biotics. Whew! Now THAT was a rodeo!

Wiggles & Wags,
mayzie

Katnip Lounge said...

Gj, we think you are a very Good Sport about taking your medicine. Mommy is the mad piller around here, but even she needs Daddy if Grayce needs a pill! At least you don't fight like crazypants.

You can do it, GJ! You're mai hero! xxoo Bhu

Kari said...

Such an excellent boy! We cats know that taking medications is awful! And we also know that your wonderful dad takes no pleasure in doing things that upset his kitty son. Especially when you're not feeling well, love. It is because your dad loves you so much that he gives you the medicine, honest! We can tell by the loving way he handles you that he just wants you to be well. Maybe you might give your dad just a wee kiss to let him know that although you hate the medicine you love him.
We love you so much, dearest Jasper, and you remain in our prayers.

The Island Cats said...

GJ, that doesn't look like much fun at all...but if the medicines are helping you, you shouldn't grumble...too much!

Lorenza said...

I understand you don't like it but sure is good that is helping you!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Howdy Ginger Jasper, sorry buddy but sometimes bad things are good for you. We are glad you are going along good. Hope your mum gets some rest when she's off the nights. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Milo and Alfie Marshall said...

GJ, yoo are right to make a bit of a fuss ~ BUT keep taking the medicine 'cos we LOVE yoo tons. xx

CCL Wendy said...

Something tells me that your Dad is a little calmer about these things, and that's why it goes more smoothly when he does it.

I think you know that your Mum and Dad are just trying to help you, GJ!

When I give a pill to one of my cats, I put a little bit of butter on it to help it slide down.

animal lover, quilt lover said...

Ginger Jasper I am so glad Dad and your Mum are keeping you going!!!! There are so MANY who will miss you so much when you go to the bridge.
My computer died Christmas Eve morning and I just got it back last night!! It is a different guts so everything is all different now!! I have to learn how to do it all over again!
Hang in there boy, Zoie & Fern

Eric and Flynn said...

You are very good for taking your meds GJ. We know it is nasty, but they are helping you and that is what is important.
Your mum will be glad to have some time off after all those awkward shifts she has been doing.

That does look nasty, but you are an excellent patient and I know it is making you feel better.
