Finally Friday

It sure is nice to have my seat warmer...um..blog machine back! I have so much catching up to do! Purrrs for all my wet Florida friends! Though thankfully the danger has past we had a terrible scare yesterday afternoon! We were all getting our Advantix treatments, which momma highly recommends even for indoor kitties 'cus it repels mosquitoes that can give you heart worms, and momma was not thinking and put Renna's on her right there with us. K9 Advantix is toxic to cats. All of a sudden Empress started spazing and running around the house! When momma saw her she was foaming at the mouth and drooling!! She got some ingested some, but which one? She didn't know if kitty Advantix was bad ingested too? She called our vet, who told us to call the Advantix hotline. While waiting on hold we saw Empress lick her back and then take off foaming again. We told the hotline vet everything. She said if it was the kitty version she was fine and she just got a mouth full of yucky taste and to give her tuna juice. If it was the K9 if was bad and we wouldn't know for 4 hours then the systems would start, her eyes would dilate and she would start twitching. Momma would have to get her to a vet before she started having seizures because it would cause neurological damage!!! There was nothing we could do in the mean time but wait!! After 6 hours, if nothing happened, she was in the clear. YEAK! How stressful!! We are very happy to report she is fine! And got her own large can of tune juice all to herself!!

That is very scary! I'm so glad Empress is okay! I think after that, Empress deserved that whole can of tuna juice and even more.

Have a good weekend, and no more stress, ok? :-)
