Wormy Boy!

Chairman Mao here, even if I messed up and posted this under Momma's name!

Momma's taken about ten pictures of me today, and I closed my eyes for every single one. She said not to worry -- she closes her eyes for a lotta her pictures, too.

She discovered today that both Marilyn and me have a tapeworm. Well, we don't have the same tapeworm, we each have a different tapeworm. Momma discovered this by looking at our little hind ends, or kittybutts. Marilyn hasn't been here much longer than I have, and the vetperson said about both of us that though we tested negative for other worms, we might still have tapeworms. So Momma kept an eye on our little kittybutts, and sure 'nuff we do. We were both outdoor stray kitties before we got adopted.

So Momma and Daddy got tapeworm medicine and pilled us. First Marilyn and then me. Marilyn didn't much like bein' pilled and first she spat out her pill, then she scratched Momma's hand before she finally swallered the pill. Then I got pilled, and I did okay with it. Gettin' pilled wasn't fun but at least it was over in just a second, and before I knew it, I'd swallered a pill and there was no way to spit it out. I guess that's a good thing because who needs a tapeworm?

Momma tells me and Marilyn that we'll the the Ballicai Formerly Known as Wormykitties.

I thought I'd wait 'til later at night to post this so I wouldn't gross anybody out too close to dinner.

Hi! I had tapewormies when I was rescued too. Mommy kept watching my tushy and sure enough, there they were! Make sure you take all your pills and you'll be better in no time!
There ain't no worms for me anymore!

Oh our mom has so much fun worming 8 of us, it's probably a good thing you get worm kill pills. We know something is about to happen when we all get locked up and she makes her list. Flea drops and pills and oh we hate it.

You will feel better! Purrs and Purrs

MaoMao said...

Thanks, everybodies! I'm feeling much less wormy.

Hi, kitties at forty paws! Yeah, those ol' pills are bitter. Momma and Daddy coated the pill with butter so it wouldn't taste quite so icky and would go down better, but still... give me a piece of Pounce anytime!
