Last Saturday I had the FELV/FIV test and Monday we dropped off some of our poopies for testing. I'm very happy to say that I am negative on the FELV/FIV. We'll get tested again around 6 months or so.
Now the poopies are another story. And I know how catsters love poopie stories. Well mine seems to have a bug. So we both are being treated for coccidia. Today our Daddy became Dr. Dad. He is very quick with that pill popper. We've heard that he has had alot of practice. So we'll be seeing Dr. Dad for 10 days. This helps make sense of our loose poops, vomiting and me with the loss of appetite. I guess us being stressed out makes the bugs even worse.
Now I no longer care for the Pro Plan Select food. I think Mommy is getting the hint that I'm a bit fussy. Plus with the bug, I wasn't feeling well. Our Vet had mentioned Evo kitten and cat food and our Dogma down the street sells it. So Mommy picked up a few cans. That is the new food I love! For now :) It is the most I've eaten of any of the foods I've tried. Mommy loves the consistency. And Zack has been getting a little bit a few times and he loves it too. So Mommy hopes this sticks and before long maybe this will be our food.
Already today we've been feeling better. I think it is because we are feeling more at home and not stressed. We now have pretty much run of the house and its lot of fun. We love running up and down the stairs. And all that running makes us more hungry so we are eating more. Even our poopies looked alot better today and that is before the medicine!
Glad to hear you are feeling better! Zooming and chasing up and down the stairs is my favorite game!
Charlie and I had coccidia when we first came home, too. Oh my cat, our poops were stinky and gross! Take your medicine and before you know it, you'll be feeling better!
Good job on the poopie story - in case you didn't know, the Diary Gal loves them! Congrats on being a pick today!
Oh yeah, the cocidia. Mistress' aunt Sandy's kitty had that. Good luck, but I don't think it's painful or anything. Congrats on the DDP!
Whooo hooo on the FELV/FIV test....
*goes back now to read rest of diary*
Okay, well the poopie news wasn't so great... :~( I'm glad you have a good Doctor Dad. Edgar and I will be purring fur you and your brofur that you get all adjusted and healthy and figure out your favorite foods soon!
Oh I know what coccidia is! I had it when I came to my foster home because I was stressed from going to the vet and having surgery. The medicine was gross but I felt better really fast! I'm glad you're zooming around the house and I bet you are all better by now! And concats on your diary - poopies who'd have guessed, right?
Glad you're getting (gotten) better. Salt and I struggled with the coccidia when we were first rescued too.
