Vet Visit Update!

I'm back from the vet's office. Here is what we found out.

1. I've lost 2 pounds since January.

2. I'm dehydrated. I got fluids, and brought home some fluids that Mawmee and Daddy will attempt to give me 2-3 times a week. The vet lady said this should make me feel a little better, and it should also help my hard poopies.

3. My breath stinks. Since I just had dental work in January, my breath shouldn't be stinky from my toofies. The vet lady said this usually indicates problems internally.

4. I had a lot of pee in my bladder. They decided they wanted some of it, so I gave it to them, and also pooped on the floor just because I thought they might want some poop too! Besides, Newman said you can't go wrong by leaving poop behind!

5. They took my blood! They are going to check my Kid Knee values and also my Thy Roid values to see if there has been any change since we had that done in January. I should get those results back tomorrow.

6. The vet lady gave me a Convenia shot which lasts two weeks. She said that will help with any infection that might be going on which could be causing the stinky breath (and the bacteria living in my stinky mouth).

7. The vet lady didn't feel any masses in my tummy, but you can still have the nasty C and not have masses. Mawmee said we would not be doing any ultrasounds, chemo, or other stuff like that. Mawmee told her she has been down that road before, and didn't want to put any more cats through all of that.

8. We left lots of money there.

9. We made an appointment for Inky for tomorrow because he is due for his yearly check-up.

I came home and ate a little bit of dinner, so that was good. I'll keep you all updated when I know anything more. Thank you so much for all the purrs and good wishes. It means a lot to me (and Mawmee).

That's a good kitty, leaving pee and poop there. I bet the vet lady couldn't be any happier with you. So far, so good. We'll keep up the purrs. Violet, maybe you should eat a breath mint or gargle with nip water?

Gargling with nip water is a pawsome idea, Timo!

Purring for you to start feeling better! It kind of creeps me out how obsessed humans are with our "leavings." Can you imagine the fuss they'd throw if we demanded to check the toilet every time they used it. *rolls eyes*

Mol Art you are so funny! The thing is some of the furs around here do want to check the toilet crazy kit. Violet of course your stinky breath is mos likely jsut that and infections and it will be all cleared up after that shot. Of course you left lots of money there with your waste MOL the vet people love to see money poo and pee.

I know what the vet pawlaces like to do with our offerings of pee-pee and poo-poo...I have left those there almost efurry year, and nobody even asked fur them, MOL!

Now that you are doing the giggles about that, I know it will be some help in making at least your spirit feel better. Glad that nothing is blatantly telling the vet dudes about bad we will have to await those lab reports...and hope that purrhaps it may be something that can be easily remedied.

Purring and pawyering for you to feel lots better! POTP, Violet!

Wow, Violet I am impressed with your droppings at the Vet office. Angel Calvin had a good giggle over that one.

I am hoping your blood tests will show that you have an infection, or something wrong with your kidneys or thyroid that meds can help. No crappy C!

My family will be purring really hard for you. I will be sitting on the edge of my PINK cloud hoping for news tomorrow from the vet that shows you can get better. Your purple cloud is not ready yet !!

Love Always,
Angel RA

Hi Sweetie...thinking of you here. My sisters had the C, and they made it through honey....but maybe you just got a bum stomach....Bella has pancretitis and the vet said that and problems with the kidneys can make your breath smell bad.

sending lots of purrs...
