I got sick on the way out...too much breakfast...and then, when Daddy had cleaned out the carrier, and had our nice new mat in there....
I peed on it!!!
I had to get a spongebath.
The vet was nice-he said I am the poster child for FIV+. He said that he really suggests a biopsy for my nose, being this irritation has been getting larger, peels off a bit, and starts all over again.
He said 'the problem is FIV+ clats have crummy immune systems. Daddy told him I won't take lysine. He told Daddy I should get lysine even if I don't like it-it may help, but because I've had this awhile, and it's not getting better, he believes a biopsy is the best thing.
high end of cost spectrum-and they are 'reasonable' is going to be $600.00.
Mommy and Daddy are going to go ahead, because Mommy is worried it could be 'serious' and the vet said by getting it taken off now, it may get rid of it for good.
He told mommy the reason it's not healing when it was taken off last time is becuase it could is not just a 'boo boo' but it's a 'something.'
I will write later and tell you how I greeted daddy last night....suffice to say that it involved pee and me.
love and light,

Sending you lots of purrs, my friend!
Purrs for you Ruffy! Sorry you have to go through this.
we send our purrs. What a rough morning you guys had. On the bright side, you may be the first kitty I know of to get a "nose job" MOL!
Ruffy, forgive my brother's attack of the sillies. Know that you are in our purrs that it is nothing serious. Maybe the lyside is a good idea too. Hugs from all of us, Mrs M
We are purring and praying for you Ruffy. You are in our thoughts, hope you will be fine. I get Lysine everyday, it is making me feel better, don't have my sneezies or coughs right now.
We're purring for you, Ruffy! Have you ever tried the lysine treats? I don't like lysine but some of the treats are good.
Sending you purrs!
Why is it that vets always prescribe stuff that doesn't taste good? Doesn't bacon or grilled salmon cure anything?
Sending purrs for you, Ruffy.
BACON? did someone say bacon?! Have you tried the past Lysine? I got that when I was a kitten, and it was chicken flavor. I ate it plain, but I wonder if you could try mixing it in food. Hope all goes well for you Ruffy. It will be better to have that spot off, now before it turns into something harder to take care of. Wish you the best my orangey buddy
