Hi Friends,

I went to see my vet today because I had a bout of diarrhea Thursday and I was off my food Thursday night. My appetite returned to normal Friday (yesterday), but Mom still wanted me to be seen.

My vet examined me and said that she felt a thickening of my intestinal wall. Because of that and my symptoms, she thinks I may have IBD. They took some of my blood and sent it out for analysis. We will hear back on the results tomorrow.

I could use some purrs and so could Mom.

Love,

Tigger


P.S. My mom is emailing with Finney's mom right now because she has a website called IBD kitties and knows a ton about IBD. I just wanted to mention that my gastrointestinal symptoms are chronic due to my CRF, so that is why my vet is leaning toward IBD as the cause of the thickening of my intestinal wall. I'm getting a full blood panel done and more investigation into it. I'll keep you posted.

Purrs and headbonks!
