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.
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!

Here's the questions just copy and paste. And tag 5 kits to play along. P-mail the kits to let them know you tagged them. P.S. Anyfur can play!
"Who are you really?"

Mom has a Christmas village display. When I was younger, I used to like to walk in the village knocking down the fake trees and people. She called me Katzilla! MOL

I don't play hide and seek anymore, it used to be our cat tree.

I don't have any; I'm purrfect! :)

I just wanted to let you know that I had my checkup this past week. My numbers (Creatinine and BUN) are the same as in January, which is good news! My weight is down a bit, but my vet thought that it wasn't too bad for a five month period and given the CRF. My heart murmur sounds better. :)

I have a furriend named Bent Ear. He is the adopted brofur of Tig DaCatt. Bent Ear has had an obstructed bladder and he and his daddy need purrs. His daddy is a good purrson, taking care of stray kitties in his neighborhood. Both of them are dear to me.

The sisfur of a dear friend of mine is very very sick and she and her family need purrs. The kitty's name is Booboo and she is the sisfur of Skids Kitty. Her mom has written in Booboo's diary tonight about what is happening. Please stop by Booboo's page and lend your support. I would really appreciate it.

OMC! When my mom got home from work today there were two packages on the front stoop. I was very excited to see what was in them. In one package was the sweetest St. Paddy's day Boutique Mouse and in the other a colorful patterned catnip bed! Thank you to my guardian angel Alfie for the precious mousie! And thank you to my nephew and niece, Zack and Zoey, for the cool catnip bed!
Mom loves the Erin the Irish Catnip Boutique Mouse so much she asked for permission from the nice purrson who made it to post a picture on my Catster page. Also, there is a video of me on my awesome new bed, on my Catster page.

My blood test results are in and I have good news! My Creatinine is the same as it was back in October and my BUN is just a tad higher than it was. My vet isn't too worried about the BUN as it can fluctuate a bit with diet, etc. She says I appear stable for now. As I mentioned before, we will try the fluids three times a week unless I need them more often. My next regular checkup will be in April. :)

I had a check up on Saturday, and the vet tech drew some blood. My vet is going to call with the results and I will let you know what they are. One thing that isn't so good is that I have to have fluids more often now...three times a week instead of twice a week.
I was somewhat dehydrated on Saturday, my last fluid session having been the Wednesday before. My vet thinks three days a week will be sufficient. Mom is going to take me back in for a re-check in two weeks to see if my new fluid schedule is working.
On a more positive note, my weight is pretty stable and my appetite is good. I haven't had any major vomiting from the CRF. Also, I seem happy and I am my affectionate self. :)
Love and purrs,
