Health Update :)

Hi Friends,

I wanted to update you on my health. As of Saturday, I gained back the 5 ounces I had lost the week prior. Now if I can just stay on an upswing with my weight, that would be good. My appetite is fine and I haven't been throwing up since I started taking the Famotidine (Pepcid). Unfortunately, the other cats sometimes pick on me because I am ill and old. But, Mom and Dad step in and put a stop to it. :) I am doing well getting my fluids at the vet. My attitude has improved about that. So, Mom and Dad want to try to give them to me at home. I'll let you know how that goes.

Love,
Tigger

 

Lovebug Tag!

I was tagged by Art Blakey to play the Lovebug Tag Game! I'm to answer six questions and then tag other kitties to play:

1. Meow! Are you a noisy kitty or a quiet kitty?
I am a quiet kitty except when I am hungry, then I let mom and dad know I want food!

2. Litterbox! Cover your business or let some other kitty cover?
I cover!

3. Happy! Favorite Daily Routine?
My bed time routine is my favorite, which is when I get to sleep next to my mom.

4. Hiss! Least Favorite Routine?
Getting my nightly medicines! I take two liquid medicines every night for my CRF and related high blood pressure.

5. Ding-Dong! What do you think about visitors to your house?
I love company! I'm not afraid at all.

6. Friends! Do you like other animals?
No, I don't particularly. I loved my sisfur Taylor; she was my litter mate. But I don't like my other brofurs and sisfurs much, except in the Winter time when I let them sleep next to me to keep me warm! mol

Everfurryone is welcome to play if you are reading this and you want to play, consider yourself tagged! Be sure to let your friends know they've been tagged by sending them a message or rosette! Angels can play, too! Tell us about your life at the bridge or your life at home before the bridge!

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

 

What's gotten into me?!

Hi Friends,

My mom is making me tell you what I did this morning. I christened my grandma's suitcase! Mom has no idea what has gotten into me. I've never done anything like that before. All I can say is that she has two cats and I probably didn't like their smell and wanted to assert my dominance. After all, I am 18 years old! MOL

 

Today's Vet Visit

Hi Friends,

I had my checkup today. My heart murmur has lessened and I had some more fluids. The vet wants to see me on Wednesday for a recheck. I'll also be going in twice a week for fluids. My appetite is good and I seem to be feeling better. I'll let you know what the vet says on Wednesday.

Love and purrs,
Tigger

Dear Friends,

I had a little setback on Wednesday night, but I'm doing better now. My mom took me into the vet yesterday and it seems I needed some fluids to help me feel better. There is good news and bad news. The good news is, my weight is up. I gained some ounces since my checkup last month. :) The bad news is that the vet heard a heart murmur. This is something new, but she thinks/hopes it is due to my being somewhat dehydrated yesterday. I go back to see her on Saturday for a follow-up.

The other good news is that my blood pressure is normal. The change in the amount of medication has helped. It was slightly elevated last month, so the vet upped my Amlodipine.

Mom and Dad are going to start taking me into the vet to get fluids administered, since I won't allow them to do it themselves at home. The vet said that they won't charge for the administering of the fluids, just for supplies, so that helps out financially. :)

Purrs that the heart murmur is temporary would be most welcome.

Love,
Tigger

Hello Friends,

My mom keeps in email contact with Genny and Elise's mom. She said to let you know that Genny and Elise are doing well and their mommy sends her love to all her Catster friends. Right now she cannot visit Catster because of health issues, but her thoughts are with us.

Much love,
Tigger

 

Feeling Better Today

Dear Friends,

I am back on my food today, no nausea and no vomiting. :) I also saw the vet. Mom and she had a long conversation about my prognosis. The plan is to see how the Pepcid works and then to start fluids twice a week. Since I am unwilling to let my mom and dad administer them, they are going to take me to one of the vet techs at my vet's office to have it done.

Thank you for the purrs, gifties for my page and p-mails. Thank you Boxie Brown for posting my request for purrs on the purr thread.

Love,
Tigger

 

Colors of the Wind

I heard this song on my friend Pixie's page tonight. It has been such a long time since I heard it. It's so meaningful to me that I had to share the lyrics with you.

Colors of the Wind

You think you own whatever land you land on
Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
But I know every rock and tree and creature
Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

You think the only people who are people
Are the people who look and think like you
But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
You learn things you never knew
You never knew

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon?
Or ask the grinning bobcat why he grinned
Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
Come roll in all the riches all around you
And for once never wonder what they're worth

The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
And the heron and the otter are my friends
And we are all connected to each other
In a circle in a hoop that never ends

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon?
or let the eagle tell you where hes been
can you sing with all the voices of the mountain
can you paint with all the colors of the wind
can you paint with all the colors of the wind


How high does the sycamore grow
If you cut it down, then you'll never know

And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
For whether we are white or copper - skinned
We just sing with all the voices of the mountain
Need to paint with all the colors of the wind

You can own the earth and still
All you'll own is earth until
You can paint with all colors of the wind.


Love,
Tigger

 

Good Vet Visit Today!

Hi Friends,

My vet was able to take my blood pressure today. Yea! Mom asked whether she had ever tried to take it on my tail (like several Catsters recommended) and she said yes, but that I didn't like it. So, she's sticking to my paw. :) She had me sit on my mom's lap and Mom petted me while she took the readings in the exam room (instead of taking me in the back room by myself where I tend to get stressed.) My blood pressure is a bit higher than normal, so the vet advised my mom to adjust my medicine up a little. Otherwise, I'm doing fine!

Bob had his Kitty Weight Watchers weigh-in today. He has lost 1 pound in three months. The vet said he is doing well, that the weight loss is nice and slow, but that mom can reduce his intake a little more. Poor Bob, he doesn't know it yet!

Love you all,

Tigger =^..^=
