Caturday Saturday Horrible Day

IZA:  Help!  Dad tried to poison me yesterday.  TWICE!

He squeezed some stuff into my mouth that was SO horrible, So vile, So unbelievably "not food" that I ripped up the vinyl tablecloth, thrashed around, and scratched him.  And I eat insects!

And that was only half of what he wanted me to swallow!  So he got on his knees and shoved my in between and forced THE REST of the stuff into my mouth while cruelly cat-handling me in ways I have never experienced before! 

He must have gone insane.  He finally got my head pressed to the floor for the rest.  I am SURE the tears from his eyes were completely fake.  It was gasoline.  Or maybe mole poison. 

It was SO BAD, he offerred me a couple of the BEST treats and I couldn't even find then from the horrible taste and smell.  I knew they were right under my nosie when I looked but went I bent down to eat them, I couldn't find them. 

Ayla has convinced TBT to get rid of me, I tell you.  He is planning to build a box above my grave (unless you just throws me in the compost bin)!

If I could climb the fence like Ayla can, I would run for my life!

This isn't me, but it was the best I could find while TBT and Ayla were plotting my demise...
Seriously, I spent an hour shaking my head to get rid of it, drinking water, and trying to throw it up. THe stuff is gluish.  Ya know how ya lick yer paw ta wash yer furs?  Well I was using my paw to wipe my tongue!

And I'm sposed ta get another dose of poison 2x a day for 10 days.  Oh Bast...  Will someone please adopt me?  I'm not gonna survive this.

TBT HERE:  Iza just got her first dose of metronizadole for her diarrhea.  A couple of you warned me that the stuff tasted awful, but I really didn't understand how bad it was. And at the same time, I got a call from a pharmacy about her methimazole thyroid ear gel med for the foam vomit and maybe stomach lining problems.  On the phone, those sounded both the same.  So while Iza was pretty much hating me, I also had to talk to the pharmacy and the Vet a few times. 

The pharmacy confirmed the med.  The Vet said "yeah" they do sound the same.  But she had heard that the metronizadole tasted awful (especially the chicken flavor) but she only ordered the flavorless variety.  She suggested I try mixing it in food, especially Gerbers baby food meat varieties.  I happen to have some.

Iza really did go kinna nuts when I tried to syringe the metronizadole.  I sniffed the bottle and it doesn't seem to smell bad to me, but for all I know I tastes like 10 year old rotten cabbage.  I don't plan to taste it...

And part of the problem is that Iza may have been shocked by me holding her tightly and trying to push something into her mouth.  But it was a real struggle.  One person can't handle an upset cat easily; 2 can. 

Iza is a very muscular cat.  She twisted and turned and thrashed.  It brought tears to my eyes to have to hold her so firmly and roughly to force her to accept an oral injection.  There is no possibility of coaxing her into accepting it.  This is likely to be a bad week...
