Thankful Thursday - Goodbye Pills



Hi Pals,

Can't believe it's Fursday already and time for another blog hop on Thankfulness. 

I am so thankful dat my pills are all gone  and I've only sneezed once in 4 days.   YAY - no more pills getting shoved down my gullet by this eveil thing:

D was pretty sneaky when he gave it to me.  He'd wait until I was all nice and comfy like in the top pic, then he'd kneel down in front of my chair, trapping me in the chair with no escape route, grab my head, force my mouth open with his giant paws, and shove dat pill down so far it almost came out my "other" end.  It was shameful cuz I had no choice but to swallow it pals.  

The lady vet called M on Monday to see how I was doing.  She said that at the first sign of a sneeze, M should call her and she'd order another round of pills.  

Guess I'd better keep my paw over my nose so no one can hear me if I let one slip out!

You can sneeze as long as M and D aren't home unless they have a baby monitor on you, pal. That is so sneaky of D. You are simply adorable in that top piccy. xoxo

That is an evil looking pill machine, Mario. Mom did not know those existed. Now I am worried she might get one for us!

Oh that is exciting to get those pills over with. Our Mom gives us pills the very same way. Her finger nearly goes all the way through but the pill goes down. Put that paw over that nose if you have to sneeze. Take care. Hope Mom is doing all right. Take care.

Mario you have to sneeze on the quiet. It seems to send the humans into worried mode if they catch you!!! Pills are a pill! Glad you're doing better, mate :) regards Austin >^..^<

It's great you don't have to take pills any more! Be careful not to sneeze in front of your M and D :-)

Ryker's Boyz 'n' Allie said...

hey does that mean if M or D let out a sneeze you can shove one down THEM? Turnabout & all...just meowin'...

Le Chic Cat Lady said...

Horray for no more pills! I always feel bad when I have to shove them down Pumpkin & Sokka's throats (which, luckily, is not that often).

By the way, thanks for visiting my blog last week and for following! I followed you as well - Mario is so cute, and he's the same age as my kitties! :)

Princess Treasure said...

Glad you are feeling better. It's too bad your humans feel they have the right to disturb you in such a comfy spot.

Oskar said...

No more sneezes! No more sneezes!

Get better, Mario!

Oskar

We are so happy you are feeling better, Mario! That pill popper can be a real PIA! Just run to the closet if you feel a sneeze coming on. If your mom is like Glogirly, you can just blame it on the dust!
