Update on Chester's illness and recovery

If you follow me on Facebook, then you know we had a drama over Christmas. If you don't follow me there, I'll update you quickly.

On Christmas Eve, Chester got sick with what I thought was a hairball. Now, my mommacat sensors went off because Chester doesn't get hairballs; Milly does. But I cleaned it up and went to bed. When we woke up Christmas day, Chester seemed fine so we took off for Christmas dinner. We got back late that night and Chester seemed okay but when we fed him, he didn't keep it down though he wasn't lethargic and he went back to eating and kept that down. It was really weird.

We kept an eye on him and he got in bed with us. The next morning, he seemed okay again but couldn't keep dinner down so hubby called Paws Around Town, who said they would stop by around noon. I'm so glad he did because by the time they got there, Chester was lethargic.

After three shots in the bum and some medication that I can't seem to give to Chester under any circumstances (he even laughs when he sees the pill pockets) Chester has been stoned on meclizine since Christmas. He's recovering very well and Hubby and I finally slept through the night comfortably last night :)

But like any good cat parent, I took pictures of Chester while stoned. So here is a pictorial of the Chester's recovery:

After his shots, Chester rested quietly in my lap while I shopped at Loose Id's After Christmas sale.
Notice that Milly was very close by. This was how they were all day.

Mom, I haven't forgiven you for the shot in the bum. 

That moment when you realize you ate the high calorie cat paste and it tasted goooooooood.

I totally forgot where I am.

Milly watching over lil bro.

Thanks Mom and Dad for watching over me. 
But please, stop watching me use the sandbox. 
It's sort of embarrassing.

Huge thanks to everyone who prayed for Chester and sent good wishes his way. He's recovering very well now!

Coming Soon! All new blog for Lori!

To start 2014 off with a bang, I've decided to revamp my blogger a little as a place not only to share pics of my cats (and other links I might find) but to also share my story of cancer and lupus.

All throughout this crazy journey of writing a book and learning the ropes of this industry, it's sometimes easy to get caught up in the daily trials and tribulations of the ever changing landscape in publishing. When I started this, I just wanted to write some hot romance and enjoy myself. But recently I've been told my journey in fighting lupus has inspired people.

That's sort of a trip! I'll keep sharing my story, though sometimes I don't even know what to think about that.

So here is my Mission Statement: I plan to bring you the hottest erotic romance I can dream up. My ideas are constantly changing and evolving so who knows what I'll think of next! :)

What else will be here: I'm a proud cat parent so I'll be sharing lots more pictures of Milly and Chester. I'll try to post them once a week on Monday, so you can start your week off right. I'll also bring you a bird's eye view of what it is like to fight lupus.

For those of you who celebrate it, have a very Happy Christmas! And to everyone... here's to an awesome new year. We fucking deserve it!!

Lori's Cats: We're back!

Mom seems well impressed that we're within paws length of each other and not fighting.

(Mom says: Yes. And this makes Daddy very happy!)
