Breaking The Addiction

Today is Day 5 of me being on the reduced dose of Prednisilone. I have done really well except for yesterday. Back came a low grade fever, not eating and just wanting to sleep. My mom was very worried but last night decided to keep me on the reduced dose and see how I did today. Well today I am doing fine. I even cleaned my plate at breakfast. So maybe this time I can get through this Prednisilone addiction and move along. After 7 days my dose will again be cut and I will be on just one Pred a day. Then after a week of that I go to every other day & can try the Palladia. We are thinking that from time to time I may get a day of the fever etc back just because I've had so much of it already. We won't hit the panic button for one day of it at least.

In a couple of days we won't be Catster Plus anymore. My mom decided this some time ago so it has nothing to do with Nutro food or anything. Not that we don't have a problem with ads for them but it is not what made our decision on Plus. Our subscription was up for the year. Some day on down the road my mom figures we won't participate in it much when all of the cats in my family are no longer here. It will be too painful for my mom so she made the choice while we are all still here and doing pretty good. Besides with all of my medical expenses we can use the money to help pay them. They are pretty steep overall. So we will have to sometimes just send our friends a birthday pawmail rather than a rosette. It won't mean we love you any less for sure! :)

Oh I also wanted to tell you about what we saw last night. There was a doe and her fawn in our backyard. They were playing and eating some of the surrounding bushes in the yard. It was so cute to watch. Well the playing, not really the eating! When I was younger I used to get so excited at seeing deer. It was like I was a mighty hunter and wanted to go after them. MOL! I was a silly cat but it made for some good cat dreams too.

More thanks for the prayers, purrs, gifties, pawmails & comments. My mom prints everything out to put in my scrapbook. So you will all be part of it. The BEST part of it!

I am glad you are doing okay. Hang in there and I am still purring and purraying for you! Dont worry about rosettes or anything like that. I just use them because I get them every month with my year subscription. I like it much better when people just comment to me or pmail me. It makes me feel good they took the time to read my diary or look at one of my pictures, etc. I don't need gifties to be happy!

Hugz and purrs, Sassy

We're glad you are going OK on a lower dose of the Prednisilone. We're purring, praying and keeping our paws crossed for you.

And we agree totally with the others - furrendship has nothing to do with rosies. We just like to hear that you are doing OK. We always look out to see if there is a diary entry, and find out how you are going.

Enjoy watching your deers. Hope you have great kitty dreams, MOL. Louis, Hunter Extrordinaire.

Purrs and Headbonks, Ra

Glad to hear that you're doing ok on the reduced meds mate. I'll keep the purrs going for you that this keeps going. Your a great mate I don't care if you send a rosette or a pawmail as long as your not leaving altogether that's all that matters.

My friend, you are in my prayers always. Don't worry about the gifties, just staying in touch and reading your diary means the world to me.

Keep getting better Louis, you're such a handsome guy.

We are not on Catster Plus either so do not worry, commenting on diaries is really important and so is writing them.

Use your money for Louis; and let us know how he is; we pray for him.

Love Tyson xo

Just stopped in to say hi and to see how you're doing. I agree with all the other commenters -- Louis is far more important than Plus! And how cool to have foxes and deer!! :)
