dont worry it ends well

monday morning
all the kits ate their breakfasts
annie of course finished last
jack camped out at the water bowl
harry on the scratching pad

when i got home
toonman told me 
harry 
had spent the whole day on the pad 
hadnt wanted treats 

now thats 
very unusual

he had no interest in dinner
no interest in anything

i debated
 should we wait til friday when i could take him
 or 
should toonman take him on tuesday

toonman  
could take him either in the morning or late afternoon 
so tuesday morning with dr mohr it was

around 9:45
 dr mohr called my office
she explained
 harry had
a very
 very
severe
 allergic reaction
lesions in his ears, above his eye, on his nose, between his toes

oh my gawd

whats causing it?
turns out
its
 my
 fault

he has a very sensitive tummy
 he's been eating only science diet d/d for a year 
however
recently 
we were 'gifted' with some very good high end cat food
he didnt actually have any
but
 he does clean jack's and annie's bowls
AND
i had been putting some of the gravy from their food on his
i didnt want him to feel left out

dr mohr said
 licking the bowls was enough to do it

how guilty do i feel

EXTREMELY

now all of them will be on harry's food

  2. Oh poor you. It must have been awful. Big hugs. That reminds me of June and Morgan's ACL rupture followed by asthma! Poor kitties. Well, at least we know now, don't we.

  4. Very little harm done and you were fortunate to get a quick diagnosis. Now go crawl in a box and feel better about it. xo

  5. Oh my goodness, I've never heard of anything like this, Daryl.
    How scary, and what a severe reaction.
    I am SO glad he is okay. Poor little fella. xo.
