I am so grateful for all the paw power, good wishes and good advice. I went back to the vet today for the fasting blood test (unfortunately it was a new tech, and after he blew one vein and failed to get blood from another one, Mom had to ask for a different tech).

The vet did check my teeth last week when I went in, and although they could use cleaning (fat chance!), he didn't see any problems there.

Today he checked my eyes, because Mom has noticed that they stay dilated most of the time. The retinas are OK, and I react to light, so the vet says I am not blind. I do have cataracts, though, which are blocking some light, so the eyes need to stay more dilated than usual. Getting old is pigeon poop.

The best news? I gained three ounces since Saturday!

Your purrs are working, my friends. Thank you SO MUCH!
