Did Wilbur do it?

In response to my post a couple days ago about being sick, my good friend Khyra asked, "P.S. - Are you sure the evil khritter isn't poisoning you somehow? We know how he attakhked your poor innocent hu-mom in her sleep -I'm just wooin'"  (I hope you can all speak Khyra-ese.)


Khyra was referring to Wilbur when she asked about the "evil khritter".  At first I thought, "Oh Khyra, always suspicious of cats.  Wilbur is on the good side."  However, today I am not so sure.  Let me tell you about the new developments.

When I was at the ER vet, they took the poop Mom brought in and sent it off to the lab to get tested.  Today, Mom got a call telling her that I have giardia.  What?  I have a disease?  Now I have to take medicine for my giardia for the next five days and Steve has to go to the vet tomorrow to get tested.

Mom says Steve and I were both vaccinated for giardia, so I think there can only be one explanation.  Wilbur must have broken into the vet's office the day we got our vaccinations and replaced the vaccine with a fake vaccine.  Then, he planted the giardia critters into our water and now I am infected and Steve might be too.  That's the only logical explanation!

I am now keeping a close watch on Wilbur's every move in case he tries to infect me again with something else!  And to make matters worse, Mom says we can't go to the dog park again until we are cured because she doesn't want to risk infecting some other person's dog.  Yet another way Wilbur is taking the fun out of our lives!

Kat, Timber had that too when she was found in the hills. Says the Human Assistant. You will get well again.

I have posted about how evil cats are. But I don't think they can plan ahead like that.

I'm thinking you picked it up on your trip. H.A. says, "When one thing changes, look for something else that also changed."

Tell your humans to be careful because they can get it from you. One of H.A.'s favorite chemicals, bleach, doesn't kill giardia. Fooey!

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Oh No Kat! I am so sorry to hear about this. Tia says that there is no possible way that her boyfriend is involved in this. I just don't know what to think. I mean, how did Wilber get to the vet to make the switch? Did he hitch hike???

Hugs,

Oh my DOG - what is going on with all the cats?! I believe that they are taking advantage of the cheerful holiday season, thinking that our guard is down!

Ziggy had giardia a couple of weeks back...it is NO FUN AT ALL. He was on the same diet that you two are on (lucky me!). It takes a while, but everything will be OK!

The thing about the "vaccine" is that it doesn't actually prevent you from getting giardia...it just reduces the amount of shedding the parasites do, thus reducing reinfection of yourself and otherpups and cats. It's all a lie!!!!!

Oh, Kat! So sorry to hear about the giardia - but you don't reaaaalllly think Wilbur did it, do you? He's too nice!
Our great sisters got that once; the vet said they got it from drinking out of water beavers had been in. Beavers!?!? Squirrels with bucked teeth. Anyroo... have you been hanging around any dams lately?

Yucky, that doesn't sound like something you want to keep around. Hope woo guys get well quickly. As for Wilbur, I think you should keep an eye on him for signs of this yucky gee-ardy-ah, if humans can get it from you, maybe he can too. Sick cats are no fun either. Personally I love cats, and the cats I lived with were not sneaky, but maybe they were especially nice cats.

Five days of medication. It will fly by and then you guys can go to the dog park again.

Keep an eye of Wilbur! Sneaky sneaky..

Wooo,
