Amoxicillin is our friend

After visiting the litter box three times in fifteen minutes this morning, Whitey won himself a visit to the vet. Mew! Without his brother. Mew! The verdict is a possible bladder infection, calling for a course of amoxicillin. Fun fun fun.

The good news is that these things are apparently not very contagious, so Billy is unlikely to get it.

He apparently wasn't too traumatized, though. He is now napping in his carrier.


  1. In case you have any trouble administering thte amoxicillin, Bootsies was on it for weeks for an upper respiratory infection. The vet warned that it can cause diarrhea and suggested 1 tsp. of plain yogurt twice a day. Bootsies loved the yogurt so much that I just mixed the amoxicillin in with it and she lapped up every bit.

  2. I got lots of practice giving medicine while Emily was sick. That's no problem. But the yogurt is still a good idea. Thanks!
