Allergies, Again

Except this time, it's not me. Poor little Bev is afflicted with an allergy (or allergies)! Gee whiz. She's been through the ringer, hasn't she. Remember, she was on all types of antibiotics because she had been bitten by a mosquito? She was a really sick kitty. After she finished her meds, she started scratching. I thought, well, maybe a reaction to the antibiotics (been there), and so I waited. And I waited. It didn't get any better and I finally, I took her in to see the vet today. Poor little boo was starting to look like she had the mange. Ew. At first, they thought it was fleas. First of all, the cats wear Frontline; and granted, she had not been on it since June because of her illness and then the itching, but still, I doubted the flea scenario. Of course, they didn't find any fleas or signs of any being on her. When they checked her records, they noticed I had changed her to kitten food when she was so sick. Bingo. They think it's all the protein in the food. Otherwise, Lord only knows what she's allergic to (kinda like me). The vet brings out a sample bag of--get this--Duck and Green Pea cat food. Hello. DUCK and GREEN PEA! haha. I cracked up. These cats are going to be eating better than us. (At least, it's not PEKING DUCK! hehe) And of course, it's special order. Duh. I have to call a week in advance to get the stuff. Like I'm that organized!! (But I do know how to fold a t-shirt.) Lord have mercy (Lord have mercy). Is that not hilarious?

The sky around Nashville was bee-u-ti-ful today. I wish I had my camera this morning. Clear blue skies with white fluffy clouds dispersed about that you could almost reach up and touch. It reminded me of the sky in Texas. They made me feel so good and reminded me that fall is right around the corner for us. Fall is always my rejuvenation period; and last year's was taken away by crazy woman. I so look forward to it this year. I will rejuvenate--if it kills me! ha.

One little flower for you. I have had this hydrangea from my garden above my stove for almost a month! I can't believe it is still as fresh as it is. I love the gorgeous green and a pinch of purple. I am so thankful today for everything around me. I am, indeed, a fortunate soul.

Awwww poor little kitty...glad the vet figured out what was wrong with her though! As for what she'll be eating now...I wanna be a cat in my next life! lol Hopefully the food will do the trick and she'll be 100% soon!!

at least it is not duck l'orange hee hee. I had a cat that had the same thing - my vet told me she was going through menopause hence the itching. Love the hydrangea! I love to pick big bunches of them and dry them for winter. can't believe that I have been able to comment not once but twice on your blog without being booted off :)

I know how it is, Rocket and Peep my terriers both have allergies and dine on duck and potato nightly. But I love them, so I don't care. Good luck little kitty!
