Still Laying Low

Memphis ventured out for a little bit last night. But as soon as mom gave him his antibiotic he took off and hid under her bed.  He came out again, but wanted in the closet (mom had shut the door). She let him go in there and rousted him out later so she could give him his second pill. Once again, he took off and ran under the bed.  Mom saw him briefly this morning. He was in the closet and as soon as she stuck her head in he ran out guessed it...ran under the bed.

Mom spoke with one of the vet techs over the phone this morning. The next step is going to be isolating him in a separate room with food, water, and a litter box. That is the only way to find out if he is eating and drinking and using the bathroom. Mom knows that Memphis will not react well to that. She has tried it before and he tries to tear the door down.

With mom being at work all day she can't tell if Memphis is eating. However, she has not witnessed him eating when she is home in the evening. This is driving her crazy! All she knows is something is either physically wrong with Memphis or mentally wrong with him. If any of your purrents have some advice or suggestions they can leaving them in our comments or email us at rissakitty2000 at gmail dot com.  We spelled that out so nasty robots can't read it.


  1. I sure wish I had some good advice, maybe try something really stinky for the dinner?

  2. I wish the news was better on Memphis... or that I had some advice to give. The only thing I can think of is tempting him with whatever his favorite foods or treats are, or the usual - baby food, KFC, etc.

  3. Maybe he could stay in your room for the day with food, water and box?
