Tigger needs your prayers and purrs

Dear Friends,

Tigger's Mom here. Tigger needs your prayers and purrs. He has an urgent care appointment this morning at 11:40 with his vet. I don't know if the combination of the CRF and the new developments with the Pancreatitis and IBD are just too much for him. I put him on the scale at home last night and he has lost weight, which he cannot afford to do. His appetite has tapered off over the past two days, and his bowel movements have stopped. It might be simply a sign of constipation that can be treated, or it might just be that tired his little body is giving up. I will let you know what I find out from his vet.

Thank you all for your continued love and support for my boy. It means the world to me.

With love,
Tigger's Mom Gina

Shoots! I just sent you a regular email answering your questions. What the heck happened between now and last night? He needs to have an ultrasound done after they stabilize him Gina. Have them do a PLI and send it off to check for pancreatitis and tell them to give him a B12 shot NOW!

We hope whatefur is wrong wif you can be treated easily, and dat it won't last too long. Get better soon Tigger! We loves ya!

Hi Friends,

I am back from the vet and I am stable. Thank you so very much for you prayers and purrs! To make a long story short, my mom's baby/pet scale was wrong, I actually gained three ounces over the past two weeks! What's up with that scale anyway (maybe the battery?) It's always been spot on before.

The vet and mom are trying an appetite stimulant on me to see if that will help boost my interest in food. I am eating, but not my usual amount the past few days. Mom decided to go back to trying the renal food (for various reasons) and I actually ate some when we got home! In the mean time Mom and Dad are going to assist feed me to add to what I am eating.

Also, the vet palpitated my belly and said I am not impacted and I am not reacting with pain. That is a good sign. I am having less poops because I am eating less. So we are going to work on that. I am also not dehydrated, which is excellent news!

Mom is super tired right now because she didn't sleep well last night with all the worrying about me. We're going to rest and regroup. We wanted you to know that I am stable. :)

Love and purrs,

Hi Friends,

I've eaten three small meals since I got home! I actually like the renal food again. Mom had tried it with me when I was first diagnosed and I got tired of it after about five months. Now it seems I might be tired of my Fancy Feast! I can be finicky! MOL

I'm resting next to Mom right now. Mom thinks I look content.

Thank you my friends for the purrs and loving comments in my diary. And thank you for leaving rosies on my page. :)
