We are asking for prayer.

Our Faithful Orange Cat, Tiggie, has been scratching his ears lately, keeping them flat and shaking his head constantly.
This morning Bernie took him in to see the vet.
It turns out that Tigs has a yeast infection in his ears.
This is common in dogs; but not very common in cats.
(If you have ever experienced any kind of yeast infection, I am sure you are really feeling for what Tigs is going through right now.)

Tiggie will need to have ear medicine squirted into his ears twice a day for the next six weeks.
We know there are lots of people out there who believe in the power of prayer.
So we are asking: Will you please say a prayer?
For us that is.
Tigs will be fine.
Bernie and I will be the ones needing to wrestle Tigs and his flying dog fighting claws twice a day for six weeks.
I think we will be needing all the prayer that we can get!

world are they going to put drops in a
cat's ears?"

but i will pray! :)

Yikes! this is serious stuff. I hope you can handle this...
Isn't it wonderful that it does not matter what we come to the Father for? I heard you.
We've had many pets in our family and it's important to be in tune.

You have a difficult task ahead of you! You will be in my prayers. Put on thick gloves and well-padded sleeves. And I pray you will be able to FIND Tiggie once he figures out what you are about to do! If only he knew that you are helping him heal...I wonder if this is how God feels about us sometimes?

OH boy ..I wish you health in the coming days.
I've asked you to pray for our chickens ..and I'd be happy to return the blessing back to you.
I'll be thinking of Tigs in the coming days.

In the meantime . . . wear your old leather jackets while you play vet assistant. . . and maybe goggles.

Oh poor tigs! I didn't know there was such a thing. Lots of cuddles are in order....
