Flashback Friday

Today's flashback is from May 2008 featuring Angel Lilly

Thankful Thursday

We are furry thankful that Mom knows how to give sub-q fluids at home so Lilly doesn't have to go to the V-E-T every day to get stuck with the sub-q needle plus it would cost too many green papers.

Pulling up skin to make the "tent".

Sticking the needle in the base of the "tent" underneath the skin.

Mom adjusting the IV tube.

It's in and Lilly doesn't even know what's going on.

Such a good girl!


  1. Kudos that your mom was so good about giving you fluids. I learned something--I "assumed" the needle had to go near the scruff of the neck, but apparently it doesn't!

  2. My human learned how to do this with Sparkle... but she was not very good at it!

  3. She sure was a good girl. My Dad gives me fluids at home from time to time too.

  4. She really is a good girl! The head peep never learned to do this for Cyrano way back when, so she's impressed to see both of you making it look so easy.

  5. What a good girl Lilly was. Our mom did sub-qs on one of the cats that came before us.

  6. What a good girl Lilly was. We did the same with Simba for several years and briefly with Bucky before that. It definitely helps when the kitty is so good. That's a great idea about using the kitchen counter.

  7. What a good girl you were for your fluids, Angel Lilly! This brings back so many memories of giving my Angel Rosie fluids at home. Thank you for sharing!

  8. She was a good kitty. Spooky was good about his fluids too, I hope to never have to do it again, but I will for any that need it.


Meow at us!
