All 8 of my precious kitties have been sick this month with a cold. Brian took Salem to the vet for me as he was the worst off, he wasn’t eating or drinking and his breathing was raspy, I was super worried. Brian’s cat “Greyson” was pretty darn sick too, but was still eating and drinking, you could just tell he didn’t feel good. I think that’s the real reason why he took Salem in. Regardless, he DID take him in and I AM very thankful for it.
Salem got a shot of antibiotics and steroids, turned out he had fleas pretty bad. *sighs* Which means they all have fleas! Salem got treated straight away because he’s allergic to them but my other kitties are going to have to wait for the real stuff. They got some super cheap stuff from Walmart, by cheap I mean $5. I need my disability money!!! The vet sent home antibiotics home for Greyson and Caelia as they seemed like they might need it, the rest just had a good old fashioned cold. I’ve been keeping a close eye on them all. Food and water intake, making sure they are going to the litterbox and wiping a lot of noses. Poor things were sneezing left and right and pretty much all over me. Most of them are better and the ones that are not all better are getting there, I’m finally seeing a light at the end of the tunnel with the kitty colds. Not sure how indoor kitties got fleas though…..
This weekend I had two of my grandchildren over. They don’t come over as often as they used to because I simply can’t watch them by myself anymore. I noticed Ella was clawing at her head and I just had a sinking feeling so I asked her to let me check her hair. Sure enough, she had lice. I didn’t catch it the night before, so we had all been exposed to it. Used the same brush, slept next to each other so on and so forth. Instantly my head started itching. lol I text her parents and told them that if Justin brought out the stuff I would treat the girls. I learned this wasn’t Ella and Norah’s first go around with lice. Poor girl has been dealing with this for over a month! I don’t know if she keeps getting reinfected by someone at school, home, or if it’s resistant to the over the counter treatment. I gave Justin instructions on how to take care of it, how to thoroughly clean the home and how to take care of the girl’s hair. Hopefully, this will be the end of it for them. My girls always had long thick hair so I know what a pain the ass it is to deal with, especially if you are doing everything right and they are getting reinfected at school. Poor Ella had bugs jumping off her head when I applied the treatment. I’ve never seen anything like it in my life. Both girls sat there like champs during the whole process of having the stuff put in their hair and the long comb out.
Does anyone know of any lice preventive that can be used during the school year in the girl’s hair?
I don’t know if it’s the season or if it’s me, I’m slipping deeper into my depression. I’m in more pain, I’m even more anti-social than I’ve ever been. I hate this. I have very little enjoyment in life. I like to make pixel tags and that’s about it. Though no one seems to like what I make because I don’t charge for them, they are free and I very rarely get a request for any. While people will pay others for the same thing that I’m doing for free. My only guess is my stuff sucks. I know, woe as me…LOL I accept it I really do. I feel better now that I’ve said. It is what it is.
Until next time
