Hi! Just a quick note to let you know how I am doing. I seem to be doing fine, but I have to take the yucky medicine for 2 more days. I run when I hear Mom start shaking the bottle, but I am too big to hide anywhere, she always finds me.
Speaking of being too big. I had x-rays on Friday. Two views. After the Doctor read them, she said my liver looked enlarged. Did she take a good look at the rest of me? I am enlarged! I am a big boy. I weigh 19 lbs. I have a big head, big paws, a big belly. I am also very long. I think my liver just matches the rest of me. I am a Super-sized Cat!
Anyway, the results of my bloodwork came back and the vet said everything is perfect. Nothing that would show any liver problems, no high counts, no low counts, just results in the normal range.
The doc thinks I might be developing allergies to food and she told us some things to try. She also said it could be IBD, but she really wasn't sure.
I've been feeling fine, eating well and playing and have just been my usual lovey self. Thanks for all your purrs and concern.

You know who to talk to! I'm sure Alex will help you too if the food allergy doesn't clear things up. I have food allergies you know..along with dust, fleas, pollen and a few other things Mom has figured out yet.
PS- Did you know the lovely Alex is Diamonds guardian angel? We call her the beautiful overseer.
Zach was wrong...her nickname is Beautiful Observer. (it's a Fringe thing)
Yea, Ivan you are enlarged! MOL! You are a beautiful big guy!
I hope it's food allergies and not IBD!
Love and purrs,
19 pounds - you are an enlarged dude!
OOh. I wonder if I will ever be as big as you. 19lb. I only weigh 1lb 7ounces. Looks like I have a lot of growing to do.
Congratulations on DDP.
