Hi Furs and Folks,
Wanted to stop by and give up an update on me.
Mom and Dad have been concerned because my appetite is not what it was, and I've lost a pound. The vet listened to my heartbeat, and found that it wasn't as bad as last time, and took me off the cardiac medicine. He thought it might be effecting me negatively, as I had no appetite in the morning and threw up alot.
However, my appetite is still not great-I'm eating, mom has been getting me chicken, and raw beef ( I like it ground up, and the italian butcher she goes to does this for me!) and pretty much whatever I want. I'm still not ravenous, though I am now getting an appetite booster whenever I need it for my appetite.
No one is sure why. Mom had a 'senior panel' including thyroid done on me. My liver enzymes-one is a little better, one is the same, one is slightly worse. I'm to get Marin, which mom has to start me on later, and pepcid in the morning as needed. I have to have poop donated to the vet when she sees me go, because thats the only thing not checked. My thyroid, which mom thought might be off, was not. But the vet did feel my thyroid was swollen, so there is still that mystery!
It I had always been fussy, it wouldn't be such a concern, but I've always had a great appetite and would eat whenever I could.
I still want people food-especially chicken and last night-corned beef! I get some chicken, but mom and dad watch it with other foods....
Other than that, I'm about the same-mom is worried and dad is too...
I don't appear to be in pain, or uncomfortable, and have even been sleeping on the bed with them with the other cats the past couple nights. Without Natalie here threatening everyone, and everyone being put out in the front room, we're finding a new groove.
I know mom and dad are still sad, and I know my health issues aren't helping.
However, I do appear very comfortble and still love my Couch back.
Hope all is well with everyone else...

Sending lots of purrs to you Ruffy. Get that poop checked out, okay? I know you miss Nat, but I'll bet she is already watching over you and sprinkling down some pretty angel dust!
