Well Darcy has had us worried this week. He's been a little quieter than usual, then yesterday morning I realised he hadn't made his usual early morning visit to see me, he wasn't even upstairs.. highly unusual. I eventually found him curled up very quietly in the lounge and he didn't even get up when he saw me.
I found quite a lot of, er, 'mess' in the kitchen too! After a quick clean up and lots of cuddling and soothing from me, I had to go to work and spent the whole day wondering if he was okay and resolving to take him to the vet if he hadn't improved. I arrived home and found him waiting for me at the door - a good sign! Still he needed a proper wash so off to the shower we went. I have a glass cubicle shower and find it easier to wash the cats in there rather than in the bath.
Anyway after this Mr Darcy toddled off sopping wet down the stairs and proceeded to demonstrate some ballet techniques.

Eventually hubby and I decided we were going to have to do the unthinkable... bring out the hairdryer. To cut a long story short, poor Mr Darcy ended up being held by hubby whilst swaddled in a towel as I frantically blowdryed and brushed his back legs and tail. I can't even describe how funny the sight was of Mr Darcy bunny kicking his way through it all. After a minute I swear he decided he was enjoying it, and just threw in the odd little kick just so as not to admit defeat!
Finally he escaped and all we saw was the most beautiful fluffy bottom disappearing out the cat flap!!
I'm happy to report that around 5 minutes later he was back, ready for his dinner and now seems fine. Must have been a tummy bug but my goodness did I worry!!
|All better now I promise... please feed me!!|
