Fall has finally arrived! Yea! The temperature has dropped and it's time for cuddling together in front of the gas stove. Before we know it, Santa Paws will be on his way! I can't wait!
I wanted to send a thank you out to Samoa's Mom for making me a special order at Cat in the Clover. She created a lovely pet heating pad cover per my mom's request. You can see a picture of it on my page (third photo down). My mom bought me a pet heating pad which, unlike human heating pads, does not get too hot to the touch and is safe for furry felines like me. :)

Two more days until we get an infusion of Zealies. Two more days! We keep wanting to give gifties to our friends to celebrate important occasions like birthdays, etc. but we can't. We are having Zealie Withdrawls! MOL
On a more pawsitive note, I had a great checkup on Saturday! My Creatinine is down from 3.2 to 2.8 and my BUN is down from 57 to 49. My BUN is lower than it has ever been since I was diagnosed with CRF in February of 2010. So, we are all celebrating! :D My vet also changed the frequency of my Famotidine to twice a day and my Cerenia to every two days, to help with my acid stomach and nausea (which cause vomiting.) So far so good, the meds are working!

Mama gave us some catnip today and I wanted it all to myself! Pippin tried to come near it and I gave her the smacky paw. I've still got the spunk! MOL

Today is our six year anniversary on Catster! I have so many special friends to remember and to thank. I do want to mention a few of the long-time friends we still have, angels and earth kitties, and some new friends too.
Angels Rocky Ann, Louis LeBeau, Mercy, Hazel Lucy, Buddie, Calvin-Knead On, Balty, and Muffin, I sure do miss you all. You are forever in my heart. We are still friends with some of the very first kitties to extend their paw in friendship to us: Gimli, Muffy, Sally - Sweet Angel, Flinders, Bruce the Boss, Autumn (in my heart 4ever), Gato, Chiefy, Kassie of the Rainbow Bridge, Snipper, Mitzi Treasure Bird, Karma Kitty, Lisa, Marina and more... We've also made special new friends: Samoa, Finney, Simone, Alfie - The Lovebug Angel, Norman, tux (the doggie), WeBeesSiamese, Queen Talullah...I could go on, but I guess I'll stop with those names or this diary entry will be really really long. MOL :)
Finally, how can I adequately thank all those who supported my Mom during Taylor's illness and subsequent journey to the Bridge in 2010. It was such a sad time, but the pain was eased because of your friendship. Now, I face my own illness, and again, you are there for my mom. Thank you.
My 19th birthday is coming up on October 1st. My one wish is that some of my old friends would return to Catster this holiday season. I wish very much to see them again.

I had posted some pawsitive updates in my last diary entry but some of my friends had not seen them, so I thought I would paw a new diary entry.
Thank everyfur for their purrs and prayers, and the rosies for my page, and the sweet p-mails. I love you all!

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.
Tigger's Mom Gina

I promised an update after my vet appointment yesterday. My vet believes I may have IBD and an inflamed pancreas. My intestinal wall is slightly thickened...she says that could be inflammation from the bad diarrhea bout I had. I had an in-house blood panel done and my Amylase was high, which is what indicated the inflamed pancreas.
Regarding my CRF, my Creatinine level has increased and my BUN level has decreased since my last blood panel. My vet recommended increasing my fluid sessions to twice a week and she prescribed an anti-nausea medicine for me to take. As of now I am taking a high blood pressure medicine, an antacid and now the anti-nausea medicine.
I want to thank Finney, Lacey and Angel Alex's mom for emailing with my mom about IBD. (Their mom has the IBD Kitties website.) My mom got some good information on foods and such that may help with IBD.
I will see my vet again in two weeks for a recheck. I sure could use some healing purrs my friends.
