Ernie's selfie

Hi guys. I was napping here on my red blanket taking advantage of the extra hour of sleep we got last night because we turned the clocks back, when the mom reminded me that I needed to take a selfie for today. So I quickly snapped this one. Check it out…I didn’t even bother to lift my head! It’s a lazy selfie!

Wally came home yesterday…but he’s still not eating on his own…so he has this tube-thingy in his neck where the mom has to squirt food into. It’s covered with a wide collar but it still looks kinda strange to me. He has a bunch of medicines to take, too. I haven’t gotten real close to him yet, but I bet he smells like the vet. I just want him to feel better.

We’re going to take a little break from blogging so that the mom can focus on getting Wally well again. If you’re on Facebook, you might see some Wally updates there. Please continue to send him purrs, prayers and good thoughts. We really appreciate it.

  20. Hi Ernie, Good to see you in your selfie. We think you bro needs some TLC from M-O-M. We know he is a happy boy to be home again, but we think you’re right that he prolly has the Stink of the Vet upon him. Give him a couple days & it should wear off. Meanwhile, go ahead and ger back to your nappie.

  21. Even your sleepy selfie is great! We’re purring loud and hard for our buddy Wally. We hope he feels better soon.

    The Florida Furkids

  22. Sending lots and lots of purrz fur Wally to get better furry soon… no fun having a feeding tube fur Wally or fur Mom. Keeping Wally in Purrz while you all take a break from blogging. <3

  23. So sorry to hear about Wally.

    Sending healing thoughts and purrs xx

  24. Aw, Ernie. We’re glad your bro is home but we’re sad he has to have a thing on his neck. Take it from me (Elliott), that’s never a fun thing. We hope that being home with you and your mom especially makes him all better fast. We’ll keep him in our purrs.

    Great selfie, by the way!

  25. I’m continuing to send LOTS of purrs to Wally! Poor guy, I really want him to get well soon!

  26. Many hugs and purrs and purrayers for Wally! Dorfie had a feeding tube when he had a bunch of teeth extracted from Feline Odontoclastic Resorptive Lesions. Hugs to you for caring for Wally!

  27. glad Wally is home,Hope he gets well soon,xx Speedy

  28. Ernie, that’s a great selfie.

    We’re so sorry Wally has been sick, we didn’t realize this. All our purrs and purrayers to him and to your mom too, and we hope for a speedy recovery. (We just looked back and saw he has pancreatitis. We’re not sure what that means going forward, but we’re crossing our paws for the very best outcome possible.) Hugs and head butts.

  29. Hi Ernie, looks like you getting an easy on good there, and why not, after all it is Sunday. peep and I will be thinking of you all, and look forwards to see you and Wally back when things are all mended. Purrs ERin

  30. Ernie you sure are one fine Panfur. Have a relaxing day on your blankie!
    We are purring and praying for Wally. Dad, the nursey man, says that pancreatitis responds to letting the organ rest and keeping good nutrition coming in. That tube feeding will help. I forget the fellow who I think Savvy was taking care of a year or two ago and then he finally got his forever home after a month or two of feedings and getting better.
    Purrs big fellow! We need you my Orange Pal!
    Timmy, Dad and Family

  31. Thank you, Ernie. We love you. Our prayers are with Wally right now. It breaks our heart that he is so sick. Hugs to you all.

  32. We keep purring for Wally and hope he feels better soon. Purrs

  46. We hope you will soon feel better and start to eat Ernie. We’re sending hugs and gentle headbutts to you.

  47. Nice selfie Ernie, we are purring extra hard for Wally and sending POTP we will check on Facebook for updates. We know everyone is very stressed with Wally being sick and needing a feeding tube so we are sending comforting purrs for the entire family <3 ATCAD

  48. You look beautiful in your Selfie, Ernie. Wally will be smelling like home soon 😉
    Please feel better soon, sweet Wally. Healing Pawkisses and Purrayers continue <3 <3 <3

  49. We’re glad Wally is home! As you know, Carmine has been dealing with pancreatitis for over a year, so please don’t hesitate to ask questions of our mom if you have any.

    I don’t know about Wally, but Carmine would *never* eat at the vet’s office. They always offer him food after his dental, and he refuses to eat. Even Lita who LOVES to eat won’t eat much at the vet’s after dental surgeries. Maybe now that Wally’s home, he will start to eat on his own.

    We are continuing to send purrs and prayers and hugs and love. We know what a confusing and frustrating struggle this disease is.

  50. What a purrfect selfie, Ernie, you handsome boy! And we are sending lots and lots of purrs and prayers to Wally! We are sorry to hear that he is not eating on his own, but are so very glad to hear that is home now. Please take all the time off that you need. We certainly will not fault you for it, but we will be thinking about all of you the entire time.

    When my angel Rosie was almost 20 she developed pancreatitis. She didn’t eat on her own for a couple of weeks. Because she was so frail we opted to syringe feed her rather than put her under to have a feeding tube put in. After weeks of syringe feeding, she one day just decided to start eating again. We were thrilled, and after a couple more weeks she was back to her completely normal self. Purrs and prayers that Wally starts eating on his own again very soon, and that his recovery is a speedy one!

    • Also, just a quick question. I hope your mom doesn’t mind my asking, Ernie and Wally. Are you all by any chance on a duck or other similar diet? I used to work at a cat clinic, and we had a number of cats end up with pancreatitis and/or diabetes after being on a duck diet for an extended period of time. Duck and other similar diets can be quite fatty, which can mess with the pancreas. I hope you don’t mind my asking, I just know that you have a tendency for allergies and dermatitis, Ernie, and that duck or other similar formulas are often used in such cases. There’s certainly no blame in this, I just felt compelled to ask.

      Purrs and prayers to all of you! You’ll be in our thoughts!

  51. Ernie you are looking mighty handsome these days! We are purring hard for Wally…hope he shows improvement soon!

  52. We’re sorry Wally has to have a feeding tube. We’re sending more purrs. We know how stressful this is.

  53. Good luck to Wally. I hope he recovers his appetite and everything else very soon. I can see that you’re a bit worried, Ernie. It’s tough for everyone when things aren’t normal.

  54. Ernie, you march right in there and nuzzle up to Walls!

  55. more purrs for Wally

  56. Ernie, you look very handsome and mancatly on your red blanket. We are sending our most healing purrs to Wally and hugs to you and your Mom.

  57. We are super excited to hear that Wally is home, but we are ever so sorry about the feeding tube. At least you know he is getting the nourishment he needs to get his strength back and get better. Mom is praying for him and all of us are purring and sending POTP. We love you, Wally. Get well soon, PLEASE! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
