Well, wanted to update you on my 'second opinion'. Basically, mom and dad don't have any more knowledge and mom isn't satisfied. Little Vet-who had been Natalie's Vet, and my vet before we 'switched over' needed the bloodwork, which she just got yesterday.
She told Mom and Dad that she really recommends a 'do over' on my ultrasounds as she doesn't much like the company that was used for my last one. Mom and Dad will probably get me a heart sonogram-I have not had one, but since mom and dad are a little 'strapped' with just dad working-and mind you, he has a good job-mom and dad don't know that they'll repeat the abdominal ultrasound.
Little vet said it could be my heart, but she didn't have any indication, as there was no 'official' diagnosis' and the results of the ultrasound from the other vet were 'liver cysts'. Little vet doesn't think that would play into my lack of appetite and nausea some days.
Yesterday was a wonderful day for me-mom said it was like I was back to me. No appetite booster, no-I felt well, ate well, rested well, and even ran around and played. Mom was making duck stock, so gave me a couple pieces of duck and that made me happy....however....
this morning, I was very unwell. I threw up twice and I peed next to the desk. Mom said she saw me go in the box again, and when she checked me, she saw I had dried poop on my backside. She thought I was constipated, but I may have had diarrhea, which is a new one for me. She had given me a little miralax thinking I might be constipated, and now she feels badly. She told daddy I'll get a little fluids tonight, just a bit, in case I'm dehydrated.
Mom called her friend who's a vet tech who's been practising for a long time. (she cant' get it right-she has to keep practising?) and mom's friend suggested the duck was too rich-but agreed this 'every few days' thing is not normal and she thinks there's a digestive or something else going on as well-she said 'the duck disagreeing-possible stomach issues-which may be from a more sensitive digestive system. I got pepcid and this morning an appetite booster, that mom calls the 'meow pill' because it makes me start meowing alot and being constantly at mom-wanting her to come with me to the kitchen to eat or to sit on the bed and pet me. I hate it when she's on the computer....
So that is where we are....
Now, we'll update again, but as we are 'losing' our virutal community here, we wanted to update you on where we will be after March 3rd....you can come to Facebook and Mom is on under 'Debra Knowles'. Mom and I and Natalie will also be on 'Cathugger'.
I'll talk more about this later.....we are very sad to be losing Catster, and mom isn't doing so well about this-but we aren't giving up or giving in. I have always believed in transition, Furs, and we cats know that we are forever the most adaptable creatures....so we will adapt. But losing everyone...we don't want this to be an option. Mom wishes she had the money to buy Catster-the community and run it for everyone. Has anyone asked Say Media if they would sell it to all of us?
In the meanwhile, mom and we can be reached at email@example.com as well-just put 'catster' in the subject line. There is a growing community of 'catster friends' on FB and at Cathugger.
I am working on a book with mom-one that features many of my diaries, my poems and stories....the last one will be written soon...
but no matter where we go-we take you all with us. We love you all-very much.
love and light,

We love you all!
I'm sorry they can't figure out what is going on with you, Ruffy, but we're all purring and the angels are sending down healing angel dust. Take care!
It's too bad they want to redo the ultrasounds - my mom knows how costly this stuff can be. We are purring for you to feel well and purring that they can figure what's happening with you. We will miss you here very much; we wrote down the contact info. Mom is probably going to get onto FB at some point. Look forward to your upcoming diary and your book! We so enjoy your diaries, stories, poems - beautiful writing, comforting wisdom.
Gumpy & family
Love you Ruffy. Will continue to pray for you.

hoping you feel better soon my friend. We sure want to stay in touch with you, your writing has touched momma so much.
