Flipping Eck.....

Dad had given me my medication and decided to push his luck and give me a quick going over with the dreaded ferminator. I hate getting brushed and always have. I know a lot of friends like it but not me.I have to bear it though as I do get knotty. Dad was gentle and didn't do too much but my face says it all.

                                          All done. Thank goodness..
                        A little update now. I am not as good as I could be and am causing worry to mum and dad. I am eating a little on and off. Some days not bad and some days not much. The worrying thing is that I am really slowed down and the last couple of days have been behind the sofa a lot. They are hoping it is because it has been very hot and maybe cooler there. Tonight I have come out and am sat with mum while she types this for me. I have my next appointment with my vet at tea time tomorrow so hope I pick up a little. Mum says I don't look well in my face if you understand that. Fingers crossed because I keep bouncing back.
  Mum has been really bad at commenting and for that we are sorry. We will try to get back into it properly very soon. Its been a mixture of worry and illness and a couple other things so we are sorry and we really do appreciate all my friends very much. Please bear with us.
                         Much love and hugs to all   GJ xxx

Mr. Jasper, we understand perfectly about not look good in the face. We have all our paws crossed for you and are sending many many purrs. We hope the vet visit goes really well. We are so sad that you are not doing well. Please tell the Mom not to worry about visiting. We sure do understand. We are also sending our best thoughts.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Your face does say it all, GJ. BTW, we both loved to be brushed, but can understand how some cats might not.

We're continuing to send purrs and purrayers.

RE: visiting: We wish your mum wouldn't even apologize, there's no need. She needs to take care of you and of herself right now, and we know (our human knows) how stressed she must be feeling right now, how worried.

Hugs, peace and blessings.

Jenna and Sissy said...

We are sending lots of hugs and purrs your way, GJ. We understand how humans worry when their kitties aren't feeling well. Sissy hasn't been well and the human is worrying about her.


Brian said...

Your Dad loves you so much GJ and so do we, more than you know pal. Have some bites...then some for me please. We are constantly sending purrs and prayers to you.

Angel and Kirby said...

WE are purring that you get a good report tomorrow!

Katie Isabella said...

Sweet GJ, we don't mind in the least of we don't hear from you now. YOU feel badly and your mum does too. YOu face DID say it all, but that kiss at the wend was precious.

GJ, I beg you, please eat.

MUCH love, and all my purrs and prayers.

Clooney said...

Oh dear sweet GJ, we love you little buddy and we hope that you will start feeling better and that your appetite will pick up again. Sending good thoughts and purrs your way for your VET visit, purrs to your Mum too.

Simba said...

GJ, I am impressed that you let your Dad furminate you even though you didn't like it. If that had been me, I would have put the strong bitey on him. We will purr for your Vet appointment tomorrow. Do you like fishy flakes (bonito flakes)? I don't especially care for them, but we remember Cheysuli liked them on her food when she didn't want to eat. Mom and Dad have finally found a couple of flavors of catfood that I will eat better with myself. We know it must be really hard.

The Florida Furkids said...

You certainly showed how your displeasure at the furminator. We know your Dad just wants you to feel more comfy though. We're purring for a good VET visit.

We love you,
The Florida Furkids and Mom Sharon

Loretta Thomas said...

GJ we sure hope you have a bit of good news from the vet, even if you've gained only a little!
Yes we all love you especially mum and dad and we pray you will improve soon. Dad did a great job brushing you, you are one handsome Ginger J!
Don't worry about commenting we do understand buddy. Our hope is for your health to get better!
Many purrs and prayers coming your way, and to mum and dad too! We love you sweet baby!

BeadedTail said...

Your face did say it all Jasper! We're sending purrs that all goes well tomorrow and that you feel better and eat a little more. Sending love and hugs too!

Andrea and the Celestial Kitties said...

Aw, your face sure tells the story! My kitties don't like being brushed either, makes you wonder what other kitties know that you and mine don't..
We hope you get a good check up. We're purring for you!

Kari said...

Your dad is one amazing fellow. He does all of the things you don't like to take that upsetting task off your poor mum. It must be rough for him because he loves you so much. We know your mum adores you. And we do too!
The tablets that you are taking to stimulate your appetite may be having this type of effect on you. They are very strong and have side effects. The doctor may need to lessen your dose or take you off of them. If they are not helping you eat, probably better without them.. We are glad you will be seeing the vet. We totally understand
not looking good in the face. We are praying very hard for you, dear. All of our love, always.

meowmeowmans said...

GJ, your dad sure does love you. But we can see you don't really enjoy that brush. Don't worry -- Moosey hates it, too.

We hope you pick up a little at the vet tomorrow, and that you start eating some more. We love you, Mum and Dad very much, and are sending lots of purrs and prayers.

Please tell your mum she needn't apologize for not commenting and such. We completely understand. We really do.


JC said...

I do hope you are just tired and relaxing the Summer away.

So nice of your Dad to groom you.

Maxwell, Faraday and Allie said...

oh GJ! We're purring extra hard for you - pleeeez bounce back for your mum and dad! They worry so, we know they do!

michico*Adan said...

Big hugs and lot of prayers to you, my dear GJ~!!

And thanks great a lot to your wishes!!!!

The Island Cats said...

GJ, we don't like the furminator much either. But it's good to keep your furs nice.

We hope your vet visit goes well...and you start doing better. Tell your mum not to worry about commenting. She's got lots going on right now and we understand. :)

Sparkle said...

Oh, you do NOT look happy about the brushing, GJ! I am sending purrs to you and your humans - I hope you pick up again tomorrow.

Jo's World said...

Hi GJ:

Sorry you had to get brushed but your Dad was being careful, we can tell that!

Good luck at the Vets tomorrow. Prayers and hugs for you!

Stella and Zkhat

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

You have lots to deal with right now, please focus on eating and staying well...visiting will come when all is well. Just know you are constantly in our thoughts and woos to the Universe.

The look on dad's face is the story, dear friend. Look at what mum captured with the flashy beast...dad is so full of love and gentleness for his boy! Never for a second doubt that you are very very blessed.

We have all slowed WAY down because of the heat and in fact our eating has gotten sort of on again off again, too. So maybe it is the weather that is making things worse for you. Just keep trying your best, GJ.

Mr Puddy said...

GJ, Don't worry about the comment, No one is worst than me...tee..heh..heh..I'm a legend ; )

GJ,You are one of my loved friend. You always have my thought and I do sending many purrs to you.

Lots of love

Hannah and Lucy said...

We are purring and praying for you at the vets for this evening - we hate going to our vets too. Please let us know how you get on.
GJ not the furminator - Hannah hates that too and Mum tries to Zoom Groom her to keep her knot free but she has two knots at the moment and Mum is having to use it so Hannah is getting quite cross with her so now she has started to snip bits off them with a small pair of scissors. Two snips and Hannah's gone with a swish of her tail! Unfortunately for Hannah Mum is quite tenacious so she will have to grin and bear it!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Old Kitty said...

Beautiful GJ! awwwwwwwwwwwwwww you are so so lovely! We just want you to get and feel better asap. We have everything crossed for you for your vet's appt. We continue to send you positive vibes and lots of purrs. Please please take care

Poppy Q said...

I hate the furminator too GJ - you are very brave.

We know your mum is busy, she doesn't have to apologise. She needs to spend her time giving you lots of kisses and cuddles. We know you need all your mum and dads love at the moment.

We love you too GJ.

Maggies Corner said...

Bellen said...

Good luck at the vet tomorrow, Ginger Jasper. let us know how it goes, please.

Punapippuri said...

Not being well and being furminated - that is just too much! And there's no need to apologise for not visiting/commenting: you have got to look after yourself and conserve energy GJ. Purrs.

Kitties Blue said...

G.J., Our mommy says she does know what your mom is saying about your face. And our mommy says that she is sorry, but she agrees. She hopes her perception is being caused by the brushing you're getting. We continue to pray for you. Purrs and hugs, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Timmy Tomcat said...
