Oh, the pitifulness...

Poor, poor Juliecat.

Julie got her shots yesterday.
I wasn't able to go with her, I was working, so Dad took her to the clinic to have it done.

Julie had a reaction last time they gave her her shots.
She's having one again.
She gets really mopey, sluggish and just walks everywhere, as opposed to her normal galumphing gallop around the house. Her bum is also apparently sore, as is evidenced by her current inability to make her normal flying leaps. (She can normally spring about 5 feet straight upward.) She attempts to jump, but only goes a couple of inches, then looks at you pitifully and meows until you pick her up and put her on your lap. >_> No, she's not spoiled at all...

And I have to pay attention and follow her around tomorrow... I'm supposed to get a stool sample. But it has to be fresh- no more than 15 minutes old. O_-

That happened to Sandcat when she got her last round of shots. She was so unhappy, seeming like she was in a lot of pain when I touched her, and really sleepy. I took her to the emergency vet, where they told me she had a fever and gave her a bit of asprin and subcutanious fluids.

The vet said it would be better not to give her more than one shot in a day and that she could be give anti-alergy medicine before to prevent a reaction. Perhaps you might ask your vet about that?

Hope the kitty feels better soon.

Last things first: eww!

Personally, I have a reaction before they even GIVE me the shot. It's something to do with "scared, scared, NEEDLES," but the exact details are a tad fuzzy (not unlike Juliecat, though I think she's less fuzzy and more fluffy).

That's really all I have to say right now.
