Dear Friends,

Bob's journey to the Bridge was very very peaceful. Both his Dad and I were there with him. He purred until his last breath...which was just like my sweet boy to do.

I appreciate all your loving comments, p-mails and gifties for Bob's page. I hope you know how much I love and appreciate you all.

Becoming an Angel

Dear Friends,

I have bad news. To make a long story short, Bob has advanced lymphoma.

Bob has not been feeling like himself for a few days. Last night he was lethargic and refused wet food, definitely not like himself. I assist fed him this morning two times before his vet appointment because I am always worried about hepatic lipidosis.

Upon arrival the vet tech weighed him. His vet came in and looked at his chart and said that he had gained a lot of weight since his last appointment. She did a physical exam, particularly of his abdomen and said it did not feel normal and she suspected fluid in his abdomen and would x-ray him first. The x-ray showed a massive amount of fluid in his abdomen and she suspects his intestines are pushed up against his stomach and that is why he doesn't want to eat, or his stomach is beginning to be affected by the lymphoma.
Bob had had alopecia on his tummy a few months back. Well, apparently with lymphoma, the skin can be affected presenting with alopecia, crusting and flaking, which is what happened to Bob. His hair on that section of his tummy never did come back.

Before the appointment I told my husband Mike I would bring Bob home so we could make any decisions together if the news was bad, since Mike had to work today and could not attend the appointment. He's going to be heartbroken as Bob is his "special boy". I already made an appointment for tomorrow at 10 am for the journey. I don't want Bob to suffer and the vet said he would begin to suffer soon.

Thank you to all of you who have loved my Bob. I wanted you to know what is going on.

Sweet Karma Kitty tagged me. :) I'm supposed to name the five things that my parents do that are annoying, and then tag five friends to play the game.

1. When my mom spoils Tigger!
2. When they keep the bedroom door closed.
3. If meal time is even a single minute late!
4. When my siblings want to sleep next to me. I grumble!
5. The fact that my parents (and the vet) put me on a diet. :(

Five friends I am tagging:

Gimli (100277)

Still Having Bladder Issues

Hi Friends,

Mom found a pee spot again and she thinks I still have a weak bladder. I have an appointment for the 18th to get an ultrasound. My vet wants to wait until I finish this cycle of antibiotics before she does the ultrasound. Hopefully a closer look will give some insights into why I'm still losing control. I'm not actually peeing outside the box. I'm losing urine here and there, not a lot like with an actual pee.

Please keep me in your prayers and purrs.



Bladder Infection!

I went to the vet and she said I have a "raging bladder infection". That is what is causing the loss of bladder control. I actually have not been peeing in the house, it has been leaking out of me. The vet took a urine sample and tested it. She prescribed a medicine for me that I am to take for 10 days and then I stop taking it for 4 days, then I get retested to make sure the infection has gone away for good.

Thank you to all my furriends for their purrs and prayers, p-mails and gifties! It's so good to know you are there. :)



Loss of Bladder Control

Dear Friends,

(This is a copy of an email I sent to two of my friends. I thought I'd post it here, so our other Catster friends can know what is going on with Bob.)

A few days ago I found a spot on the couch where one of the cats had peed, not a full-on pee, just a small area. I treated it with liquid enzyme cleaner and thought perhaps someone was upset over the packed boxes we have everywhere (we are moving.) Well, I found another spot on the other cushion of the couch the next morning. Having five cats, it's hard to know who the culprit might be, but something told me one of my elders (Tigger or Bob) might be losing control of their bladder.

This morning I was sitting on the couch typing on the laptop and I smelled "fresh" urine. I looked up and Bob was laying on the back of the couch. I immediately got up and went to look. Sure enough, there was a fresh urine stain on the comforter I have placed up there for the cats to lie on, and Bob's fur on his nether regions was wet.

Mike is taking Bob to the vet tomorrow first thing. I have a feeling something serious must be wrong. I was hoping someone had a urinary tract infection and that was why the peeing happened, but I don't know that UTI's can cause loss of bladder control.

Please keep Bob in your thoughts and prayers.

Love from Gina and Bob
