Fluids...Blech!

Well Friends, I had my first fluid treatment tonight and I did not like it one little bit! Oh, I was calm at first because I didn't know what was happening, but once I realized I had a needle stuck in my back, I started squirming and squirming! Mom tried to calm me by talking gently and quietly to me, explaining what was going on, but I wasn't having no splaining!

Mom almost started crying, poor thing. But that didn't phase me at all. In the end, Mom gave up holding me down. She thinks she might have gotten all the 50 ml in me that the vet wanted, but she isn't sure because it was a new bag.

Mom is asking that you purr for us that I will come to accept the fluids. In the mean time, if you have any suggestions, please let us know.

Love,
Tigger

 

My Check Up

Hi Friends,

I had my check up this afternoon. My vet took my blood pressure and it's high, so I'm going to be taking medicine for it. Apparently, kitties with CRF can get high blood pressure. I have a re-check in a week to see how I am doing on the medication dosage.

My blood work was good and bad. On one hand, my Bun went down from 53 to 39...that's good. But, my Creatinine went up from 2.2 to 2.6; that's not so good. I'm going to go on a 100% renal food diet and hopefully that will help. Also, my vet recommended my parents give me sub-q fluids. Mom is worried about how I am going to react. Hopefully I'll do okay.

I wanted to thank all the kitties who are purring for me and who sent gifties and p-mails. Please keep me in your purrs.

Love,
Tigger

Tonight I asked Zack and Zoey if I could be their uncle and they said yes! I am so honored and happy! :)

 

New Photos

We added a new (old) picture of Taylor and me when we were about eight weeks old and another picture of me. Mom ordered this cool little machine that scans photos into files that the computer can use. It's so fast! (way faster than our regular scanner is.) Mom is really excited about scanning our old family photos-- it's so much easier now!

Love,

Tigger

Hi Friends,

Just an update to let you know I have the next appointment with my vet on March 26th. Also, I am enjoying the renal diet that my vet prescribed--Royal Canin Renal wet and dry foods. Mom is also going to try some lower phosphorus wet foods to give me a variety.

I am adjusting to my sister Taylor being gone. I am much less clingy with Mom now and I am not actively looking for Taylor all the time.

Love,
Tigger

 

Test Results

Hi Friends,

My test results are in. I have CRF (chronic renal failure) in the beginning stage. We knew that with my being 17, I could develop an age-related disease. Mom is going to pick up some special food for me at my vet's today, and also request my panel numbers. She can't recall what Dr. Ginny said on the phone regarding my numbers; she went blank after she heard "kidney disease".

There's never a good time for this to happen, but for Mom to find out right after Taylor crossing the Bridge is so hard. Mom has some researching to do about CRF. She wants to find out if there are any good supplements for me and how to keep me comfortable.

Love,
Tigger

I had my checkup today. I have lost some weight, so Mom and Dr. Ginny thought I should have a blood panel done. Mom will get the results tomorrow. I'll let you know what my mom finds out.

Love,
Tigger

 

I'm doing better

Hi Friends,

I wanted to let you know that I'm working through my grief for my sister Taylor. Yesterday, I saw that my brother Marmelade, who I like to sleep next to best now, was in my sister Taylor's cat bed. I went over and squeezed into it with him. (Squeeze being the operative word since Marmelade weighs 16 pounds and it's a small cat bed!) It made Mom very happy to see that I was able to sleep there with Marmelade.

I have a wellness check up tomorrow. Mom will be talking with Dr. Ginny about how I am feeling and acting. Mom knows that it will take some time, just like with her and Dad, for me to work through my grief.

Love,
Tigger

As I type this, I am thinking about all the wonderful times I spent with Rocky Ann on Catster. I miss her so much already. Her presence was a powerful one. Until I see you at the Bridge my friend. Fare well.

Merry Christmas!

We had an early Christmas present this year...16 inches of snow fell at our place on December 7th. It was all very exciting! It was a lot of snow for Placerville--we usually get that much in an entire season.

Mom had to stay home from work that day because her car wouldn't clear the snow, plus she doesn't have four wheel drive. Thank goodness the snow plow came through that night and she could get to work the next morning.

The snow stayed for about five days, slowly melting away. Mom took pictures of the snow on our street. There is one on my page if you want to see it.

I want to thank all of you wonderful Catster kitties who sent us Christmas cards this year; it was so very much appreciated!

Love and Purrs,
Tigger and Family
