What a strange week.
I haven’t been feeling very good lately.
I’m sneezing, wheezing, my eyes are running, and I’m tired.
So, I went to the vet.
When I got home, I had a new friend waiting.
(That’s a pig on the left and me on the right, in case you can’t tell.) Hee hee.
Even though I was under the weather, I still showed a little love to the pig.
I couldn’t figure out why he was there though.
This was getting weird.
Why was the pig here?
Annie Sullivan knew, but she didn’t want to tell me.
That’s when I knew it wasn’t good.
Turns out when I went to the vet she wasn’t sure what was wrong with me.
I have had this sneezing and wheezing off and on for a long time.
It’s a result of where I came from in that horrible environment.
This time the vet wanted to get to the bottom of it once and for all.
She gave me all kinds of tests.
One of the tests was for Swine Flu!!!
It’s rare, but cats can get Swine Flu.
The symptoms are the same as mine, so she wanted to test for it.
We anxiously awaited the results.
The results are in… NO swine flu!
It’s a stubborn bacteria that’s been hanging on for a long time.
I just have to take medicine for a month.
That made me smile.
So I whispered to my new friend…
…no Swine Flu, so you can go now.
He oinked back, “When pigs fly. I like it here!”
So I did what I do for all my friends.
I gave him a foil ball and space to sleep with me.
Take that, Swine Flu!
