It never fails!

Just when you're about to leave for vacation one of the cats gets sick!  ARRGGH!
They just have a way with timing don't they?  I think maybe they do it on purpose to try & keep you home.  Anyway, poor Zoolou made a yucky deposit in the litter box that had a bit of blood in it so that prompted a call to the vet & luckily I got her in right away (with her stool sample).  After an exam & poop test Dr. Bill thinks it's just a bout of colitis.  She has a few pills to take & should be fine.  Whew! 

Silly cat's never been sick a day in her life (aside from hairballs).  I was all panicky there for a few hours.  I couldn't imagine myself leaving for a whole week knowing my cat was home sick!  I always worry about our pets a little even when they're NOT sick!  Thankfully, I know she'll be fine & I can enjoy our family vacation.  She is not acting sick at all as you can see from the photo!  In fact, she & Markie had a pretty wild rough & tumble play session just this morning!  Darn cat!

SO...about our vacation!  We're headed to a little town called Fish Creek in Door County Wisconsin!  Door County is the little peninsula that sticks out on the northeast side with Lake Michigan on the right & Green Bay on the left.  It's dotted with quaint little towns all around the coastline & filled with gorgeous state parks & scenery!  Hiking, biking, beaches, lighthouses, fish boils, ice cream & relaxing are on our list of to-dos!  Oh & eating lots of cherries!  Can't wait!

Glad your little sweetie is doing ok! I hope you have fun in WI. My husband is from there and I've always enjoyed our trips to visit.

So glad to hear it's nothing serious! I know how scary it can be to see that in the litter box!
Hope you enjoy your vacation, it sounds wonderful!
By the way, I featured your 5 Calicos in a Tub on my blog today. I absolutely love it!!

Glad to hear the prognosis is not too worrisome. I wish I could be your kitty's caregiver while you vacation. Have a nice trip and hope all is well at home while you are away. Deb =^..^=x5

Fine that Zoolou is better now I hope you enjoy your holidays in fish- creek. I guess Zoolou wouldn´t mind to join you.
It sounds like kitty- heaven.
All the best Janine
