Feeling better

Mom took me on another, *pffft* car ride to my kitty doctor. They poked me, and some blood came out. Ugh. After sitting with mom for awhile, the doctor and her assistant friend came back and said that while one of my readings had not changed, it was not bad to start with, and another reading actually got better (whatever all that meant). Mommy seemed very happy. They talked about my diet, and that it seems to be helping me to feel well. I do feel well. I was tired before, and didn't feel like playing as much. I didn't want to hang out with my furry mom, or my human mom. I kept getting sick. Yuk. Now I'm playing more, and hanging out more with my furamily. I haven't been sick in more than 2 weeks! Mom got me some special canned food, and she mixed some with my dry food. Yum! The dry food is ok, but kind of boring. This other stuff tastes like chicken! Really! MOL! If I continue to feel well, I don't have to visit my doctor for 6 months. I hope that's a long time, beclaws I don't like sitting in that container and riding in the car. Mom brushed my coat, and now I'm ready to relax in a sunbeam that's shining in the window.


Not as healthy as we hoped

I was still getting sick, even after taking the Pepcid for my tummy. Mom took me back to the vet, where they checked my blood, and found something that was not right. The doctor said I am in the early stages of kidney disease. They put water under my fur (boy, did that feel funny!) to "hydrate" me (whatever that is) and I had to take some medicine, and I am on a special diet now. The food is ok, but I like my old food better. Mom has me on dry food, but is going to let me try the wet, too, and see if I like that, and how it works. I have not been ill in several days. We are hoping that the medicine and diet are helping. I want to get better, so mom doesn't worry too much about me. She is always looking for me to see what I am doing. I wish I could tell her that everything will be ok. I am not feeling bad. I still want to play, and eat, and hang out, and do everything I was doing before.


A little under the weather

Mom took me to the kitty doctor, cuz I've been throwing up a lot more than usual. Otherwise, I feel ok. I'm eating and drinking, and using the potty. I will play, and hang out with everyfur. The doctor looked at me, poked me, put a cold round thing on my chest and belly, and stuck a sharp thing in my rump. She told mom that I am a healthy kitty, and being sick may just be because of my age (12) and my tummy not tolerating foods as well. I will take a small crumb of something called Pepcid, with dinner each day, which everyone hopes will help. If it does, I won't have to go back to the doctor until it's time for my next check up. Keeping the paws crossed for that. The car ride inside that crate thing is brutal! My furry mom, Laura, came along too, and got her check up, and the doctor said she is doing very well. She doesn't get as worked up about being inside that crate thing as I do. Mom left the crates out overnight to "air out" as she says, and when she got up in the middle of the night to check on me, she found me inside mine, which made her laugh. I quickly jumped out--wouldn't want her to think I like it in there, MOL. :)
