Update from Ptery's mom

Ptery did pretty good through September, then started declining in October. He lost his appetite, along with a lot of weight, and he was a pretty small kitty to begin with. In the end, I was giving him subcutaneous fluid, and feeding him with a syringe for a few days.

On Friday (101708) morning, Ptery was in obvious pain, and it was obvious that it was time for him to go. He fought a long battle, and was such a good sweet boy, always in a good mood and loving up until the very end. We will miss him, always.


I'm feeling better

Meow! I am feeling lots better now. It was pretty hard for me to eat for a while - I just wasn't interested in food. After having an appetite stimulant prescribed, I am eating a lot more and starting to regain some weight I lost. I'm a lot stronger now and can jump up and down from things.

My mom is going to take me back to the dr. to have my stitches removed and to find out how to give me fluids (if I need them) through my implanted injection port (she says she's going to try and post a picture of me and my port, pretty soon). Mom had to buy some pheromone plug-ins to keep Monkey settled down, 'cause she just wouldn't leave me alone! Now, Monkey is happy and is ignoring, instead of attacking, me. What an improvement!

I sure am happy to be home, and am giving my mom lots of love and attention!!


Home again!

Mom took me home last night - yippee! I am back in my own space. My pet friends are getting used to me again. Monkey has attacked me a couple of times, and Brandy keeps smelling me. I am kinda weak, and mom has to lift me up so I can get to the tap in the bathroom sink - who wants to drink out of a water bowl when running water is so superior? I also have to take lots of icky medicine for awhile, and I'm not eating as much as mom would like - maybe 'cause I just had surgery? I hope I get my appetite back soon. At least I have lots of comfy places to sleep and am away from all the chaos at the hospital.

More later,
