Happy Summer everyone !!
I had my annual check on Friday to make sure I am doing okay with my diabetes and pancreatitis.
I got a big gold star (yeah..I love that color) and Mom and Dad got one too for taking such good care of me.
I have gained back the weight that I lost when I was really sick. My coat is healthy and my weak back legs have become strong again.
I couldn't jump on the counter for almost an entire year because my back legs weren't strong enough. I am back to jumping whenever I want to.
I am waiting to hear if my kidneys look good. They took a test to see my values since we hadn't had that checked in a while. My heart still has a little gallop. But it isn't any worse then it was before. I do have a little gingivitis. So I am going to have to have my teeth brushed a little more often. I like the salmon flavored toothpaste. I don't like the rubber toothbrush.
Hope everyone is staying cool and enjoying the summer !!

My birthday was just great. I ate (approved food only..MOL),
I played, and I took nice long naps. Mom let me spend some time on the front step. It is cement and feels so good to rub against it.
Thank you to all of my friends that stopped by to celebrate my birthday with me. Your sweet words and thoughtful gifts are so appreciated.

Mommy is quite lax in updating our pages as of late. Just last week we were still showing snowflakes and ice.
But, today is my birthday. She knows that with my health issues,
every birthday going forward is extra special and can not be taken for granted.
She made sure that I had a fresh new page for my special day.
But I don’t expect any un-approved treats or goodies..although I would love to have some...hint hint

I have been laying low lately to catch up on my rest and enjoying just hanging out at home with Mom, Dad, and my family.
This week, Mom changed everything.
On Tuesday, I went to a new vet for my nutrition consultation. It wasn’t mandatory that I attend. But it was good for them to see me in person and make an assessment on my weight and muscle tone.
They say I am a 5 out of 10, almost an ideal weight and only mild to moderate muscle loss since my health issues began. Mom says I am sooo skinny. I think she has an inflated view of what a healthy kitty looks like…MOL They reviewed my current diet and gave Mom and Dad a summary of what they feel would work best for me with my health issues.
It is information that Mom knew for the most part. But they really need help to find me a few different diets that will keep me eating.
Even when maybe I don’t feel so good. As I have mentioned before, I get very picky within a few days of a pancreatic flare up. So, having a few options may be helpful.
The problem with me is that I don’t like much cat food. I think I may end up being the the most challenging patient they have ever had.
I did make Dr. Valerie lose her train of thought when I gazed up at her as she was explaining things to Mom and Dad. She had to say, “wow, he is just so handsome”. Mom said, “oh, thank you”. I said, “Yes, yes I am”.
Today, I was hauled off to get my glucose curve. Mom still thinks my levels are always to high. One of my first curves was very good. The last one never dropped to a good range. I will give you an update later. They were very happy to see me and told me what a good boy I am.
They call me their rock star…
Mom just rolls her eyes. She knows how that goes to my head and I become sooo difficult at home. She said if I was a female, I would be the definition of a Diva.
I like rock star. Definitely works for me!!!

Nothing like a DDP to make me feel even better !!
Thank you so much for choosing my diary. What a nice surprise to start my day.
Concats to my friends that also had their diary's chosen too!
I am feeling much better then last week. The sun is shining today, going up to 70 degrees, and it will stay light till After 7 o’clock. YIPPEE !!
The only downer is that Mom and Dad aren’t home to keep the front door open so that I can enjoy a long sunny sleep.
I guess you can't have everything...MOL

I am going to start feeling like a superstar with all this special treatment.
I have been doing okay with managing my pancreatitis and diabetes. I have had a few bumps in the road over the last few months. But I always bounce back pretty quickly.
Because I have a terrible habit of not liking really any cat food, other then my Felidae and Weruva Paw Licken Chicken, which I gobble up like crazy. But it makes my poos soft and stinky. My vet has suggested that Mom and Dad consult a dietitian to help them manage my diet which could really help to keep me feeling better. Mom is very open to that and could use the advice to get me on the road to better nutrition and health.
Mom finally asked for my vet to give me a B-12 shot today which was suggested a while ago by Alex Angel’s Mom, Lisa. I also got some fluids which always make me feel better.
Has anyone had any experience with a dietitian?
