On Drugs!

Mr. Bowie’s on drugs! Recently, Mr. Bowie gets two capsules a day that contain L-lysine. It should improve his strength and health. Lysine is an essential amino acid that plays an important role in building up immunity to fight diseases and infections. It should help him fighting his eye infection. Thank goodness he likes the taste of the powder when it’s dissolved in water.

Meanwhile, Mr. Bowie’s eye condition improves slowly in the good direction. He can keep his blurred eye open for a longer time period. Don’t worry, his eye will become more clearly over the next months.

Enjoy this beautiful day, my friends, wherever you are. Peace, love and understanding.

    • Thank you for placing that wonderful song in my head! We’ll take good care of our furry friend!
      Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Het ziet er echt al een stuk beter uit!! Het zal voor Bowie ook deugd doen dat hij zijn oogje verder kan open doen.
    En oef, hij lust de drugs 😉 .
    ❤ ❤ ❤

    • Na al die maanden van miserie… Het doet echt deugd om nu te zien dat het echt aan ‘t beteren is.
      En ja, heel grappig met zijn medicatie. Net zoals de vorige keer lustte hij dat niet in het begin en moest ik het in zijn mond spuiten. En nu likt hij het kommetje snel leeg! 🙂

  2. Mr Bowie you’re a Star! 😀
    It’s great he likes his medicine and I hope it makes him strong and healthy.
    His eye looks like it is healing well. 🙂

    Little Monkey has to have eye cream twice a day – forever. She hates it and it is hard to put in the eye which had the op, as the eye lid is quite tight now. Still, we do what we can for our pets’ well-being. Treats all round 😀

    • Well, Little Monkey deserves a lot of treats for sure… 🙂
      I’m very lucky that Mr. Bowie is a very calm cat. Every vet that treated Mr. Bowie told me he’s the calmest cat they ever met! I also have to clean his ear with a liquid once a week and put drops in 2 times a week. Respect for our pets and treats all round…

      Have a nice weekend, my dear friend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

  3. Thank goodness Mr. Bowie decided to take his medicine on his own. I have been down the syringe feeding road and I know how stressful it can be. You both have had enough of that. Thank Mr. Bowie for setting a good example for Miss Dolly.

    • Hi Angela! I was so happy Mr. Bowie decided to take the medicine on his own. And he didn’t ask for a treat afterwards… 😉 So glad we’re finally heading in the right direction.
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

    • Thank you, Bernadette! That’s a good idea, mixing it with dry food. Maybe I can give it a try…
      Have a nice weekend, my dear friend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • Thank you so much, Jennifer! It was a lucky shot. Held my iPhone in front of his head and took this shot without looking on the screen.
      Have a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

    • I’m sure Mr. Bowie will follow your advice!
      Wishing you a great weekend, Tim! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • Thank you so much, my dear friend! I’m so happy that Mr. Bowie is a very easy and calm cat…
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

  4. Mr. Bowie is a STAR……taking his medicine and everything – being patient – he obviously knows that you and his doctors are doing ALL they can for that eye of his – soon the infection will be just a memory! We send him tons of POTP and hugs………hang in there Mr. Bowie – there’s a light at the end of the tunnel and you can SEE it ! 😉

    Love, Teddy (and Pam too)

    • Hi Pam & Teddy! Thank you so much for your kind comment! I’m so glad to see we’re getting to the end of all his problems. Thank goodness we had lots of treats for the both of us… 😉
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Pam. Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • Thank you so much, my friend! We are so happy to see he’s finally improving and getting better after all these months.
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”

    • Hi there! Welcome on HoB, thanks for visiting the blog!
      We’re so glad to see Mr. Bowie’s health is improving.
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

    • Hi David! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
      Just had 2 strong espresso’s and dark chocolate in this cold morning. Mr. Bowie decided to take a nap on my bed because it’s to cold outside… 😉
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • Thank you so much, my friend! We are so glad to see Mr. Bowie’s finally getting better. The lysine supplement should make him stronger.
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  5. I am glad you are taking your drugs, Mr Bowie. My Jack has a cyst in his eyelid. He has to have eye drops twice a day. He is following your good behaviour example. 🙂 He would like to know if you get treats, like he does, for good behaviour?

    • Oh yes! Mr. Bowie gets extra treats because he’s such a good boy concerning his medicines. And I’m also getting treats when Mr. Bowie gets his treats… 😉
      Have a wonderful weekend, my dear friend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards to Jack!

  6. What a good boy to take his medicine without a fuss. So stressful if you had to use the syringe all the time. The photo was a bit alarming – good to know that his eye will clear over time. Keep up the good progress, Mr Bowie, with the help of some extra treats, of course!

    • Hi Jill! I was so happy to see Mr. Bowie likes to take his medicine on his own.
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!”, sends his regards and fully agrees with your last sentence!

  7. Sounds like Mr. Bowie is on the mend, Herman. Good to hear that! Wishing you both the very best weekend, lots of dark chocolate, espresso and cat treats! 🙂

    Our Abby cat had feline herpes as a kitten. Every now and then she will get a mild outbreak, and she gets the lysine caps. Lysine out-competes arginine, which the virus needs as part of its replication cycle.

    • Hi Lavinia! I’m so glad to see that Mr. Bowie’s finally on the mend. I’m also very happy that he likes the lysine capsules. It looks like he thinks they are some kind of treats… 🙂

      Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards to all his friends of the cat crew at Salmon Brook Farms!

      • Good Mr. Bowie likes the caps! That makes it easier, for sure. I had to dissolve the contents in a little water and feed them to Abby by eye dropper, as she does not like pills.

        Mr. Nano and crew send you and Mr. Bowie a big “Meow”! 🙂

        • At first, I did the same but with a small syringe. Thank goodness Mr. Bowie decided it was rather silly and started to lick the solution in a little bowl.

          Tomorrow we’re going back to the hospital for a checkup. Let’s hope he gets good results!

          Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards to all his furry friends of the cat crew!

    • Hi Charlotte! I’m so glad to see the condition of Mr. Bowie’s eye is finally improving after all these months. Thank goodness he’s not rubbing his eye a lot, but a pirate patch sounds like a good idea…
      Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!

    • Thank you so much, my friend! We are so glad to see he’s finally getting better.
      Hope you’re having a wonderful Sunday! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

  8. My two rejected food with powdered L-lysine in it, yet love, love, love the paste form that comes in a pump container. Regardless, I’m pleased to read Mr. Bowie likes it dissolved in his water! It does help build up the immune system in cats, and that will help him recover from his eye infection! Getting our kitty friends to ingest what’s good for them is a challenge many times, as anyone with cats knows.

    • You are so right, Dough, it’s always a challenge to convince our furry friends what’s good for them. I tried the lysine paste form but Mr. Bowie said ‘No can do!’ Much to my surprise he likes the dry powder dissolved in water… Thank goodness!
      So glad to see his condition is improving!

    • Hi Julie! So glad Mr. Bowie likes his medicine… and very happy he’s finally getting better!
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards to NZ!

  9. Just popping by for my end of week Bowie fix and your good news! I do love the inquisitive posture in your photo Mr Bowie ! A good sign that you’re feeling your old self. Such a handsome boy 😀 Cheers friends ! x Boomdee

    • Hi Boomdee! Thank you so much for popping by! Mr. Bowie is getting better and better… We’re so glad to see we finally found a solution to heal his eye.
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!
