I missed my maniacal kitty tonight. Instead of happily chasing the mouse across the screen she was slumped across my arm and feeling rather poorly. I was not surprised to see her react like this to her booster.
Poor little Audrey. She needed to be comforted, cuddled &cared for tonight. I hate what these vaccines do to kittens. She is listless, warm to the touch & flat-out. I'm glad I was home tonight to keep watch over her.
After being vaccinated, a kitten can experience all these side-effects. It is likely that she won't eat or drink much tonight. I will tempt her soon with some soft food with warm water added to hydrate her. Getting water into her is important.
So tonight I am on 'mom duty' while the real mom, one of the most renowned opera singers of the 20th century, roams the halls.

hugs, Deb


  1. Oh poor Audrey. I know those shots are so hard on them. Glad you can comfort her while the Opera Diva sings!

  2. Lucky kitty to have such a loving mom as you.

  3. I hate it when my babies aren't feeling well. I'm sure that she will snap out of it soon and be back to her regular antics!

  4. Oh dear - poor baby. Hopefully by tomorrow she'll start feeling better. I've never had a kitty that reacted to shots before. So sorry she has to go thru that.

  5. I hope that sweet girl is feeling better today. She's a lucky kitty to have loving arms hold her.

  6. Please give Audrey kisses and hugs for us. Her poor kitty mum is unfortunately heeding nature's call. Love to all.
