My youngest Burmese, Rocky (aka the Noonoo) has, for the past couple of weeks, been totally over-grooming himself and tugging out his own fur.

Poor thing looks mangy! I was hoping it would clear up by itself but it didn’t, so I whisked him off to the vet this morning.

Mr Vetman confirmed what everyone had been telling me – mah kitteh is stressed :-(

BUT … it could also just be heat stress (Rescue Remedy did nothing to help), and not real “psychological damage” (sheesh, MORE freakin’ drama to deal with?) and prescribed something to de-stress him. Um, it’s a cat contraceptive but apparently it does the trick! And who am *I* to argue?

So anyway, The Noonoo is now, as far as I’m concerned, as high as a kite! Kitteh hasn’t left my side all day and if he’s not meowing for my attention, he’s collapsed into a heap on the table next to me.

Awwwwe … poor little thing!

(um, no dirty jokes from you guys with your minds in the gutter heh)

    And how’s the new job going? Been thinking about you loads, hope that it’s rocking!

  3. StevenMcD says:

    And the new job is rocking! Thats why I’ve been so quiet!

  4. justB[coz] says:

    Hah! fanTAStic news Steve :D I’m really thrilled for you.

    And proud too – proud that you took stock of where you were, didn’t like what you saw, thought about how to change things and DID IT! That took some guts and a whole lotta faith.
