Well, firstly, I want to express my condolances to Momma Ivey's family. It is always hard, dear peoples and Ivey's mom, and we wish we could lick you better. We do know that you are so lucky...you are saintly and kind and so wonderful. Ivey knew who to pick-the best!:)
Many, many, many purrs.
We think of you...now and always. And we know Momma Ivey is watching over you from above.
Now, I just wanted to mention that I am down a half a pound, as per the vet last week. The little vet wants to do a 2 cavity sonogram on me. I don't want to have it done, naturally. I don't like laying on my back and it stresses me. Mommy wants to avoid stress at all costs.
Now, Momma may let the do it, but she is sort of like 'so what is it going to show that will make a difference. Momma is not a vet, but has worked 'in the animal field' for many years, some at a vet clinic. She says I don't have the signs of a cat with a growth in the 'testines, which seems to be what the little vet thinks.. However....she is concerned that my Kidney disease does seem to be kicked up a notch. She may ok the sonogram only because she wants to give me fluids daily, she thinks I need it, and the vet is afraid that it might be too much fluid as I have a heart murmur...thus, the sonogram for that.
Mommy went down to a very special pet store in Manhattan and bought back some new 'special stuff' for me to take that came from the recommendation of the store owner. He is a very smart person-has been doing this many years. Mommy got me some stuff that she hopes will help with my CRF. I have been taking it for 2 days now and Mommy says I do seem a tiny bit better.
For whatever reason, I now love raw chicken liver. Mom is amazed and it's sort of funny, as it's just me and the kitten, CK, who like it. The others don't. Mommy was advised to get some beef liver....she may try that. I like raw beef, too, and always have. So I may get some of that. I'm still getting whatever canned food I'll eat at the moment.
The man Momma spoke with told her that cats with CRF have a form of anorexia, and part of the problem is that it is harder for our kidneys to break down the food enough for us, and thats part of the problem. So some of what mommy got is supposed to help with that.
And just when I figured the worst thing would be for me to maybe get a sonogram and take suppliments, last night mommy was giving me my once a week look over. Well, she examines me and gives me a little exam to make sure all is well. And she gave this little cry and called daddy over to me.
It appears I have this weird looking blister like sack on my lower belly, near one of my nipples. It's not a hard bump, it's a fluid filled sac. It's weird looking, and sort of hanging low, like it's on a long strand. Mommy has never seen anything like it and either it wasn't there last week, or she missed it. She's concerned, but is just hoping it's some weird cyst. But she's hever seen it before and is concerned. I'm drinking and eating.....well, not eating great, but am eating.
Ah, well, that probably means being hauled to the vet again. What's a girl to do?
Purrs and Power of the Paw for me, please?
