I coughed up a monster in the litter box! It was icky, squirming, and bad-smelling. Foster Mommy said it was something called roundworms and my half-eaten food. Whatever it was, I wanted it gone and buried, so I buried it! Foster Mommy scooped it out of the box right away and threw it away, along with the poop that I was doing when the monster came out of my mouth.
She then took me into the bathroom and gave me a big pill to swallow. I tried to get rid of it, but she said I had to swallow it. I finally did, but my eyes got really big when I swallowed! She said that pill was for tapeworms, but I had to take it because I had a flea on me also. Just one flea, and I had to take that big pill? What would have happened if it had been more than one flea? Foster Mommy says that the flea can have tapeworms, so I needed the pill. Good, because I don't want more monsters!
After I swallowed that pill, Foster Mommy gave me some liquid medicine. I had the liquid medicine before, a few weeks ago, but obviously I needed more. It didn't take care of all the monster wormies the first time, so we're trying it again. I kind of like the caramelly taste of the medicine, but I don't like it for the time it takes me to drink all the liquid. It's too much after a while. Foster Mommy tried mixing some of my food in, but I wouldn't eat the food after the medicine soaked into it. She looked for a syringe or an eyedropper, but couldn't find them. Finally, she got the idea of a straw! I love straws, and will carry them around the house. She put it in a mug, then poured my medicine into the mug. I played with the straw while she did that, and sniffed the contents of the mug. Then, she put her finger over the hole in the top of the straw and trapped some of the medicine in it. She lifted it up for me to drink! Wow! I got to drink out of a straw! Boy, did I ever lap that up. I got most of the medicine that way, so she thinks I got enough to kill those bad roundworms. I drank most of it myself, but she had to put the straw into my mouth for the last bit because I was done with that flavor. She said I was a good little boycat, though, taking my medicines! I just hope the nasty roundworm monsters are gone this time.
