Tux, this past weekend with grandpa
Troubles and tears surround us today. Our dear Tux is so sick. Doc agreed that Tux didn't act like it was time but he won't take his meds! He's got to take them! He has two heart pills and now two kidney pills cause he has gone into acute kidney failure. He's taking in fluids too.
Grandpa called Mom at work and told her to bring Diamond and some food out to the house. As some of you know, we have been having a hard time keeping Tux eating, and now it's worse. He pulled a muscle in his leg and then ran off two days in a row! He did come back by himself both times but the second day he was in pitiful shape. That's when he went to the vets for the second time and we found out his kidneys were going down for the count. Mom tried covering the pills with ice cream, pimento cheese and peanut butter. The peanut butter worked but she still had to be forceful with him. Which she hated doing. He took all but one pill of the two kidney pills. Grandma said she would bring him over to our house tomorrow night for round two. He did eat and drink some water with Diamond tonightso that's good .
He has to eat and he has to take his meds, if he doesn't he'll leave us. Grandma thanks they are fighting a losing battle. Mom agrees he's being awefully stubborn about the whole thing. Purr that he will understand all of this. And purr that he doesn't bite Mom's finger again. It was a minor causality of war today.
Sad note: Diamond told me they were all sitting outside enjoying the afternoon when Grandpa and Grandma started talking about how much grey he's gotten in the past two weeks. This haunted my thoughts all night.
Did I tell you Diamond has two new knots on her front legs. Mom says she guesses this is something we are going to have to deal with for the rest of her life. She's worth it! And my allergies has my eyes watering something awful.
Also purr for Manytoes and the fam. They are having a lot of illness in their home too.
Awww, Tux! Come on, you gotta take your meds. I'm purring for you and purring for your mom and grandpawrents. It's tough when we get older....I think Tux and I are the same age, right? (and he's a Tux man). Purring for all of you and also for Manytoes and family.
We are purring for tux and your family. Come on tux, take those pills!
Purring for Tux to get better! Please take your medicine!
Sending purrs for Tux.
Oh Tux honey please take your meds it will make you feel way better! Zoe I am so sorry my BFF you have such a difficult with those allergies I hear they are just dreadful, take care of you.
Maybe Diamonds knots are not so bad if they are not hurting her.
Sorry to hear Manytoes is not feeling better. we will check in with them.
lots of love and purrs
oh nose, Tux, you gots to take your meds. Trust me, I knows they can be gross. I gots all kinda icky stuffs for my teeths, but you gotta take them buddy! I'm purring for you!
Oh no!!! We'll be purring hard for Tux. Tell Tux that Stewie says he needs to take his medication! Mom wonders if you've tried pill pockets? Otherwise cheese, peanut butter, ham, anything really... In the raw feeding world chicken hearts are an awesome pill pocket! Stewie didn't even know he was eating pills, MOL. We are all praying for him and for Diamond's knots that they go keep going away like last time.
Blade, Moppie, Simon & Tony, The foster kitten and Stewie!
Sorry that Tux is being difficult about his meds - I HATE taking any kind of medicine, so I can really sympathize. But tell him we all want him to feel better, so he needs to take them. Big hugs to everyone. Will be back later to read about the all-girl pirate ship.
Sending purrs to you and your family.
Hope everyone starts feeling betters and is ok.
Love, Kibbles, Francis, Yoda & The Crew
