Diaries of a Tired Cat Mom

I’m tired. I’m really tired and I’m using all my leftover energy to write this post. I officially have five (I almost said six) sick kitties. I only have five (as of now).

First it started with Ginger who is being extra sneezy early last week. I didn’t think it was serious since she was only doing it a few times a day so I attributed it to allergies. The weekend came and then the babies got sick on their first birthday. They got pretty bad the next day. They were breathing through their mouth, lethargic and having sneeze attacks.

Several times this week, I woke up at 2am to check on everyone and so far, only the three cats were sick.

Ginger got better, the kittens received an antibiotic shot and got most of their energy back and now the two older white sisters are sneezing and miserable. 10 days and I have five sick cats. The vet said it was a virus and will run its course between 7 to 10 days. 7 to 10 days and overlap of sneezy cats, worried cat mom and sleepless nights. Oh how I wish we could turn back time and I have five healthy cats.

I need a double shot.
