Some Not So Good News

OHAI everybuddy! I have some slightly BAD news to share with you. I hope you do not MIND hearing it. I am having a SMALL flareup of my EGC.  That stands for "eosinophilic granuloma complex." Whew, that's a BIG word! So far, my only symptoms are the RETURN of some LUMPY cystic feline acne on my CHIN. 
Let me RAISE my HEAD so you can SEE.  Do you still LIKE me even though I do not LOOK as HANDSOME as usual?  My Mommeh thinks maybe the STRESS from the MOVE brought it ON.
I am very SORRY that I do not look my BEST.

Moving can indeed be stressful, Harley. I hope you can get used to your new home quickly and relax a bit. Cats shouldn't worry - let us humans do that. You just be happy and content, and get better.

Goldie Goodwin said...

Harley, you look as good as ever! Just try to relax.
I have a kitty that has the same problem as you. It comes and goes with him and we haven't even moved! I think you are doing really great.

Trixie said...

Oh Harley you are just as handsome as ever!

Everycat said...

Poor Harley, we love you whatever you look like (which is always handsome) You have just moved to a new home so it's no surprise that you are having a little outbreak of EGC. You take it easy fella and let your Mummy look after you

Love from
Gerry & Mungo

PS: I, Mungo get acne from stress and I've been having Missing Link Ultimate Feline Formula added to my food for over a year now, it has really helped control things for me. It tastes ok too.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette said...

You always look handsome to us, Harley! We can imagine that the move did cause you some stress.

Would the remedy that Rumbles used perhaps help you, Harley?

Cathy Olliffe-Webster said...

If it's any consolation, Harley, I can't see it. Moving stress is the WORST. Just ask my cat Dodge. You'd think he was being killed, each and every day. Soiled himself. Lost hair. Dandruff was nasty. Wouldn't eat or drink. Now that we're here, though, he loves his new digs and is feeling almost kittenish. Here's hoping your moving stress ends asap!

BoSoxAmy said...

You're still handsome as ever, Harley!

Patty Woodland said...

I am very sorry Harley. Moving is a pain in the tale so I can imagine it would make you sick. I hope you are better very soon.

Dom said...

Harley, rest assured that your Mommeh and your friends do not love you only when you're at your best, but especially when difficult times come around. Hope you can focus on getting well and staying strong!

Keisha said...

U is very cute, Harley! {{{Hug}}}

pacificmelody said...

Harley, you could never be less handsome to me. You are a manly cat and a pleasure to see. Just relax and let your Mommeh take care of you and you'll be fine. Max and Murphy say Hello!

Katnip Lounge said...

We still think you are verreh handsome--we just hope it's not painful for you.

Barb and the Gs said...

Oh, Harley honey, it would take a whole lot more than acne to unhandsome you and even more to make me not love you!! srsly.

And I agree with your Mommeh... stress can do all sorts of things... to kittehs and humans!

Angel and Kirby said...

Harley, you are handsome as ever and we love you no matter what. Stress causes so many problems!

Poor Harley. I bet it was the stress from your move. I think you should do lots of sleeping and get lots and lots of treats so that it goes away quickly.

Harley , we know you will feel better once you have established a routine and everything becomes more and more familiar to you. Moving is stressful but you will be o.k. sweetie! And you always look handsome :)

meowmeowmans said...

Harley, don't worry! We love you ALWAYS, no matter what. Sorry you are having a flare up of that EGC; we agree ... maybe it's just the stress of the move. Big hugs and smoochies to you, handsome Harley.

Lin said...

Harley, my cat Grace has this too! She just had a flare up and it affected the paw pad on her back foot. The doctor was afraid that she may have had cancer, but I mentioned her egc and they think that caused it.

EGC is no fun. :(
