(Images in Niko's head)


Are you okay, Niko?


Actually, we have been out for Goro's allergy shot recently.

While back, I posted about Goro losing some fur...

Fortunately, his beautiful fur grew back.

Although he never seems to feel itchy, Goro shows several
allergy symptoms from time to time. When we took him to
specialist before, antihistamine was recommended. This time,
after consulting doctor, we decided to start immunotherapy.

I hope we made a right decision for him.

I'd like to mention that his Dad is allergic to many things including
pollen, dust mites, cats, and dogs. After we adopted Goro
and Niko, he started taking allergy shot in order to be with them.

You are not allergic to cat, Goro.

Allergy shot has been working for Dad. 
I hope it will work for Goro, too.

OMG - bawhahahaha! That is funny on what all Niko is thinking in his head as to what kind of shots Goro is getting. Heeheehahaha! Oh you make me laugh and laugh!

Good luck Goro! It's no fun having allergies!

Kisses for you both! Smooch!

I hope these shots work for Goro - otherwise it is a BIG bummer that he has to go to the vet to get them!

Old Kitty said...

Beautiful Goro!! We hope the immunotherapy works!! Awww!!!

Sweet Niko!! You are doing a great job watching over the place while mum and dad and Goro are away! Yay! Take care

Niko san darling, you are like a newscaster with your clear and concise thinking and extrapolation (WHEW! HARD WORDS!!!) of scenes and what you heard. You are my hero.

PS please tell my mommy what kind of immuno therapy? xoxox

Katnip Lounge said...

5 ways to GET flabby abs? I want to read that article, ha ha ha!!! And a bunny rabbit in a shot bar...Nico, you have a vivid imagination!!

Goro, we hope the shots help you...if not, maybe a shot of tequila would do the trick!

Was Niko trying to get a pee shot in the sink? MOL!!! purrrr....meow!

Mariodacat said...

Hope the shot works pal. Allergies are not fun. M has some too, but I hear they are really bad for kitties.

Brian said...

I sure hope it works too my friend, the itchies are no fun!

Cara n Crew said...

Niko, we don't think you have to worry about being left fact, you should be thankful :D We hope that if your folks mention shots with you that they are thinking golf...

Goro, you have beautiful shiny furs. We are glad your itchies are better. Maybe you have seasonal allergies? Sorry about all of the shots but we hope they will do the trick for you. purrs,

Pip, Smidgen, Minnie, Hollie

Niko, we bet Goro wished it was the kind of shots you thought of!!

Goro, we hope those shots help your allergies go away. Ernie has allergies but they aren't too bad usually. And when they do get bad (with him itching a lot or getting bumps or sores) then he has to get a shot too!

meowmeowmans said...

Niko, we are pretty sure you don't want the kind of shot Goro is getting.

Goro-chan, we hope, purr and pray that those shots wil work for you. Alleries are no fun. :(

Dearest Tamago,
Quite a scary title... Wow, but let's hope indeed it will work out fine. Like Goro's Dad. That is proof of TRUE love for his fur-babies.
Hugs to all of you,

This is clever as usual. It's not uncommon for cats to mirror human's physical symptoms and vice versa. I see that a lot in my behavioral work. Purrs for successful shots!

I always do love your posts!

Kten said...

Our Lady has some allergies, but thankful none of us do. We don't like the idea of shots! Hope you feel better soon! lee and phod

Johanna said...

Hi Tamago,
you made my day with that cute story. Its too funny with all the thoughts of Niko. And how scared Goro looks at the vet. Poor boy. I hope the therapy will work soon.
Best greetings, Johanna

Marg said...

Poor Goro, we sure hope those allergy shots work for you. We have a couple of kitties here that have allergies and they get the calming treats to help calm the itchies. We sure hope it works for you. Take care.

What a good Dad. Certainly wish you luck Goro. Also wish you had been having the wonderful adventures Niko was imagining instead of going to the vet.

Aw poor kitties! Love this post. Let us know how the shots work.

Spitty-the-Kitty said...

Niko, You sure are busy with your cello-playing and shot-imagining. I think your shots are waaaay more fun thatn what really happened to the G-man. But still, look how shiny and great his furs look! So maybe the shots is working???

This is one outing you will be happy you missed, Niko. XOXOXO

Kea said...

My preferred shot would be the second kind, at the bar. LOL.

We hope the allergy shot works for you, Goro. Better tell Niko he really shouldn't think you're out having fun. LOL.

Katie Isabella said...

Goro san, tell us how you are now? My mom called my V-E-T and found out that I am indeed getting steroid shots but just a pinch, not a full shot and not even half a shot. Almost reminds mom of homeopathic treatment. THIS time it dod not work very long. Mom will tell the v-e-t when I go back.
