Pet-Peeves: being picked up when he does not want to be
Favorite Toy: Beak the Kiwi Bird
Favorite Nap Spot: On the back of the sofa
Favorite Food: chicken, turkey, Cheesy Poofs, cheese,smart food, pistacchio & corn muffins. Biggles is on a strict diet now that he has feline diabetes. He begs for all of the "bad" people food. But does not get any of it, only turkey baby food as a treat.
Skills: He can bat just about anything with pretty good force. He has very strong paws that he can also use to pull your hand or arm in for a little nibble.
Arrival Story: Born outside under our stairs. He came into our home in June, 1999.
Bio: Although he appears to be pretty cool, and is game for our torment, he really gets pretty mad at us. I guess it's a pride thing. Biggles has
got lots of "tude", which is what makes him such a "Cool Kat".
Biggles was diagnosed with Pancreatitis in August, 2011. Subsequently, he became Diabetic in September, 2011 as a result of his Pancreatitis. Through working closely with his vets, we are managing both diseases with some success.
Now at 15 years old, Biggles is doing well and has a great quality of life although he has the underlying conditions. His vets are extremely pleased with how well he has done over the last 3 years since the initial issues with his health.
I was already eating more and feeling better than I did on
Wednesday. But still stiff and sore in my back legs.
I growled when Dr. Joe touched my back right leg.
He said it does not look like I broke anything. But I do have arthritis and it seems like I may have sprained something.
Because of my other health concerns, he did not want to give me any medications to help with pain. It may affect my kidneys or other organs. He gave Mom some glucosamine tablets to start taking and recommended that I take it easy for a few weeks.
He seemed overly happy with my condition and says that if I keep eating and getting stronger, I should be fine in no time.
Today, I am walking even better and even met Mom at the door yesterday when she came home from doing errands. I had not done that all week. She was very happy to see me there and gave me some treats to thank me for being part of her welcoming committee again.
Mom and Daddy are so happy that I am getting back to my normal self and this quickly. They were so scared last week.
Thanks for everyone's pawsitive thoughts and purrs. It helped so much.
I am going to my local vet today at 4pm. I have lots of specialized doctors’ cause of my health issues. But Mom said we are going to take one step at a time. My local vet is much closer to my house than my other doctors.
I am looking better and my limp isn’t as bad as it was the other day.
Mom put me on the heated throw which felt really good. I slept on the bed and Mommy’s chest for a little while last night. I have been eating normal amounts of food and cried for my chicken this morning.
Thank you for all the POPs and pawsitive thoughts. They really do help!
