Me = Grouch Bucket

Moki isn't doing so hot today as you can tell from the posts title, he's been a bit of a grouch. Now with that said, Moki only tends to get grouchy when he is really not feeling well. (I'm afraid I just may get bit tonight when giving him sub-q-fluids...lol.) Scratch that, momma bean just gave Moki his sub q fluids and managed not to get bit, she was however unable to escape his numerous growls...and had to force feed Moki twice today because he refused to eat.
UPDATE:
Well Moki's still not wanting to eat, but he knows how stubborn his momma bean can be and that she won't let him get away with not eating so he is making a vaild effort to try. He managed to take a few bites of dry kibble early this morning maybe three or four, and this evening ate about four or five bites of wet food. I was able to get him to eat about three tablespoons of warmed up baby food on his own, later in the evening, and force feed him small amounts of food twice today, once in the mid afternoon, and once again later in the evening. As for his grouchiness it has all but disappeared, so he seems to be feeling a little bit better today, despite his still not eating and drinking as normal. At the moment he is congested however, which most likely explains his not wanting to eat or drink on his own. He has been coughing somewhat throughout the day, but the drooling which hit a high yesterday, has more or less disappered. Overall it looks like supportive care, i.e., force feeding, and sub-q-fluids, etc., will be in order for awhile, as will the Tamilfu.
