Mischief of the not-so-fun kind

Hi all! It’s Dakota and I wanted to give a bark out today for my kitty brother Cody. Some of you know he isn’t feeling well right now.

It started late last week when he wouldn’t eat.

That is a concept that I just don’t understand.

Before I knew it, Cody was being whisked away in his carrier to, of all places,  the VET!! That didn’t bother me at first, it bothered me when Mom and Dad came home. I ran to the door excited to greet my brother, when I went to sniff the carrier to give him a kiss, he wasn’t there.

This had never  happened before.

My sensitive Sheltie heart sunk. I looked for him everywhere. I slept by his carrier, hoping with all of my heart that when I woke up, Cody would be there.

This was mischief of the most unexpected and not-so-fun kind!

After waiting for what seemed like forever, Cody DID come home! I smothered him with my special Sheltie kisses that are designed to heal anything and everything.

Cody is still not feeling well, I guess I need to give him some more kisses and see if that helps.

For those of you woofies who don’t like, or, don’t UNDERSTAND cats. My brother is my BEST friend! We love each other, we plan mischief together, we wait for Mom and Dad to come home together.

Please say a prayer that my kitty brother will be ok.

I can’t imagine my life without him.

Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  1. Oh no! The poor sweetheart! We’ll be purring and praying for him to get better soon! The picture where you’re sleeping by the carrier waiting for Cody to appear is so heartbreaking. All the best to you all! Much love, Roxy & Tigerlino <3

    • Dakota says:

      Thank you!!! It broke Mom’s heart too. Mom kept watching me when I kept sniffing the carrier looking for Cody. Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Dakota says:

      Oh I sure was Lily & Edward. I couldn’t believe they came home without Cody! Then, after many hours, he DID come home and I was so happy! Now I just want “Dr.Smiley” to make him all better so I can go back to barking in his face 😉 Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  3. I would miss my kitty brofurs too, even the big Pipo Guy who beats me up sometimes…Minko even more, cause like you, I love him.

    I have lots of pawyers and soft woofs in my heart fur you and Cody, and my kitty brofurs are pawyering too, and purring hard.

    • Dakota says:

      Thank you my furiend!! I have been kissing him and watching out for him! I am trying to keep my barking at a minimum to try and not get on Mom’s nerves. She is behaving like an annoying basketcase though! She barely noticed the beautiful grooming job the vet did on me today! The nerve! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

      Thank you sooooooooo much!!! Barks and licks and love, Dakota PS: Cody is home, but isn’t himself. That being said, right now he is actually sitting in the sunshine on the windowsill, wait! He just came to go and sit on the couch, good sign! He finally emerged from his “cabin!” He will probably be at the vet tomorrow afternoon for them to steal more blood. Barks and licks and love, Dakota and Caren

  16. Praying with all four paws for your kitty brofur Cody. Love Dolly

  17. I will definitely pray for Cody! I hope he feels better very soon! *Hugs* – Rachel & Rooney

    So sorry he isn’t feeling well. Did the vet figure out what is wrong with him? My kitty Sophie has a cat cold, but other than sneezing and snuggling, she seems to be fine. Slobber your cat bro up real good, I know kitties love it 🙂 Paw hugs for your kitty.

    • Dakota says:

      Thank you. No, not yet. We are praying it isn’t something awful based on his first blood work results. They will probably be re-doing the blood work tomorrow. If it is bad again, then xrays probably of the GI tract. His ultrasound for the abdomen came out fine. It’s the other part I am terrified about. Love, Caren

  19. Oh, sweet Dakota we were so sad when we heard about sweet Cody, we have been praying a lot of prayers for him to get well. We understand very well that cats and dogs can be best buddies and we are sad that you were sad while Cody was at the Vet. We have been praying for you, your mom and dad too sweet Dakota we know how hard it is when one of the family members is not doing well.

    We want to wish you all a Very Happy New Year and that 2015 be filled with love, happiness, good health, all you need to live comfortably and lots of hugs and nose kisses!

    We love you all and leave you lots of warm hugs and nose kisses!

  35. We’re so praying that Cody gets better soon. It’s heartbreaking when our loved ones 2 and 4 legged are ill. It makes us feel so helpless. I do wish that we could explain to our 4 legged children what is happening. They surprise us all the time with what they DO understand and yet in times like this we can’t help them understand. Prayers for a speedy recovery, the New Year will be a good one for all of you!

    Hope that Cody is feeling better and that the blood work you mentioned a few comments ago came back normal! I know how hard it is to have a sick kitty and no answers and Barley doesn’t like when her kitty brother is whisked away to the vet and doesn’t come straight home, either! We’re sending lots of love your way!
