The only thing was that Thimble was still a bit drugged up, and so she couldn't quite see straight or stay awake.
If the lighting of Thimble's selfies still, yet again, seems off, you can most definitely blame this here human. Generally speaking, I feel like my new phone takes pretty decent photos. I'm still trying to figure it out in its entirety, though, and the setting for photo lighting is eluding me. I always get bested by technology.
In more important news, Thimble is doing great after her dental surgery. She had a crown amputation and has sutures in her mouth, and so she's not supposed to eat dry food. Let me tell you, that's a tough thing to ensure when there are five other cats in the house, including a hind limb paralyzed fella who needs food in readily accessible places that Thimble can also easily reach. I keep having to distract Thimble from the dry food by refilling the moist food bowls with her favorite canned food and, of course, her beloved baby food. Luckily, that usually does the trick.
On another note, Thimble does not like the taste of her antibiotics, but she takes them nonetheless. Thimble is a gagger, though, and she always has been. Even just the smell of her antibiotics now makes Thimble quite literally gag. The poor girl is such a trouper, though, and she lets me shoot those antibiotics in her mouth despite the fact that she despises them with a passion.
Of course, Thimble's sharing her selfies for the Sunday Selfie Blog Hop, hosted by the Kitties Blue over at The Cat on My Head.
Thimble and all of us here wish you a stupendous Sunday!
Doodle of the Day:
I'm indeed still in a spooky sort of mood, but now I'm also in the mood to doodle up some books. So, that means this:
Did you know?Did you know that cats and dogs are frequently given antibiotics that are flavored like bubblegum or banana? You'd think that our kitties and pups would be prescribed antibiotics in flavors such as tuna or chicken. But, alas, amoxicillin for our furbabies often comes in a bubblegum flavor. Clavamox is another variation that often comes flavored like banana. The primary reason for this is that these medications are safe for both human and furry children, and for the sake of manufacturing and financial ease, veterinary clinics are often stocked up with antibiotics in flavors used for humans. It's often the same medication for both human and furry children, just with different packaging. If you've ever wondered why your kitty or pup's antibiotics or other medication smell or look like bubblegum or banana, therefore, that might be why.
The above being said, there are ways to get almost any prescribed medication in a flavor more palatable for your kitty or pup. There are various specialty pharmacies throughout the nation and world that are able to put various drugs in suspensions, for example, that taste like tuna, chicken, or other flavors. These options are often more expensive, but it's at least important to know it's an option. Therefore, if there's a medication you are struggling to administer to your furbaby and you're worried it's because of the taste, consider discussing other options with your veterinarian.
