Hi Friends,

My vet said my heart murmur sounds better, though not completely gone. I am feeling better being on fluids twice a week, though I certainly don't like the drive to the vet...a windy mountain road, 25 minutes each way. Though, the treatments are keeping me alive and that is what is most important.

I want to mention that my friend Xena Princess Warrior is having surgery today for a breast lump. Please purr for her!

Love,
Tigger

Glad to hear you're doing good, Tigger! You'll have to get your Mom to learn how to give you fluids and then you wouldn't need that car ride! We're purring for Xena today!

Happy to hear you're doing well, sweet Tigger. It would be wonderful for both you and your mom if she could learn to give you the fluids herself.
Purrs for Xena too,
Love always,
Alfie

Hi Friends! :)

My mom and dad gave my sisfur Taylor fluids for almost a year off and on without incident, so they have some experience at it. However...I am a different story. I act like a crazy cat when they try to give me fluids! They've tried multiple times, even using the "burrito" technique as advised by the vet, and it's always the same story, squirming, flailing psycho kitty! I also won't allow Mom to pill me, and I have to have my medicines compounded into liquid form. For an old guy, I know how to work it! MOL

As for having a vet tech come to the house, the vet isn't charging Mom and Dad for administering the fluids, just for the supplies (bag of fluids, line and needles). It's such a blessing that the vet isn't charging, so us making the trek twice a week doesn't seem too bad a trade off. :)

Love to you all,

Tigger

An 18 year old psycho kitty,who can't even be pilled?
I have to admire that, Tigger! Keep working it, dude!You're right twice a week is not so bad and it sounds
like your mom found the best solution.
Purring that you stay well and safe trips,Love you, Alfie
