Poor jack sad

Oh no Chock! What's wrong with the little lad?

Fluffycloudland77 Fri 01-May-15 17:50:38

Have you seen a vet?

chockbic Fri 01-May-15 19:03:27

He's got a flare up of his virus. Been given a jab. See how he is doing in a week.

Thanks for asking x

Poor Jack. Worrying isn't it?.

chockbic Fri 01-May-15 19:22:01

It sure is. He kept going to sneeze, waking from sleep. Not happy about that.

RubbishMantra Fri 01-May-15 20:30:35

Healing vibes from Little Monsieur, MCat and me. flowers

Is this the same virus he had when he first came to you?

chockbic Fri 01-May-15 20:40:32

Nice of you Rubbish, you are a sweetie star

He does look miserable, bless him. I've got upset as I hate seeing him sick.

chockbic Fri 01-May-15 20:41:32

Sorry yes didn't answer, vet thinks same virus.

RubbishMantra Fri 01-May-15 20:50:00

Well, I sort of feel like I know him from your posts. smile

He should be fine then, he fought it off as a small kitten, now he's a strapping adolescent. His immune system will be more equipped to fight it.

Doesn't stop the worry though.

Just a thought - couldn't be hayfever could it?

chockbic Fri 01-May-15 20:54:43

True we've been through adolescence together on this board.

He's got a temperature and wheeze, so more likely a virus.

Was sneezing a fair bit yesterday, but more of a pre sneeze today.

RubbishMantra Fri 01-May-15 21:03:38

Speaking as a human, I find the pre-sneezes worse than actual full blown sneezes. Irritating and frustrating.

I'll bet Jack is strutting about on his ballet dancer legs tomorrow. Swiping at your nose. x

chockbic Fri 01-May-15 21:08:14

I think you're right, he is annoyed, especially when he can't rest. Lots of swirly owl head action. Probably dizzy as much as anything grin

RubbishMantra Sat 02-May-15 13:10:24

How's young Jack doing this morning Chock?

chockbic Sat 02-May-15 14:25:17

He's better today, less pre and post sneezy.

Getting lots of rest, sleeping under the duvet.

cozietoesie Sat 02-May-15 14:38:42

Keep him really warm and in bed. The warmth is really good for them I think - I know that it's advantaged Seniorboy when he has sniffles.

Good luck to him.

chockbic Sat 02-May-15 14:57:12

His voice is coming back too. Will keep him settled x

RubbishMantra Sat 02-May-15 15:37:54

Poor little thing. Glad he's feeling better.

chockbic Sun 03-May-15 11:54:29

Going to check a couple of things out with the vet. Seems almost back to his bouncy self. Appetite not affected much cake

cozietoesie Sun 03-May-15 12:13:46

Glad he's better, chockbic. Let him burrow into the warmth when he wants to though - it might be the best thing for him.

smile

chockbic Sun 03-May-15 12:16:07

He went out briefly earlier, as he was driving us mad, in truth.

Snuggled up in his basket now, with an extra blanket.

cozietoesie Sun 03-May-15 12:31:38

All the best to him. smile

chockbic Sun 03-May-15 12:33:49

Thanks cozie.

RubbishMantra Sun 03-May-15 15:11:04

Ah that's good his appetite wasn't affected by his sniffliness. He must've kept his sense of smell during his poorliness.

Yay, Jack properly on the mend!

chockbic Sun 03-May-15 18:53:04

It's probably more a sense of gluttony, than smell.
