I am losing weight :-(

I had to go to the vet today for my B12 shot and to have my weight and ears rechecked. I did really well, but I lost almost a pound since last time, and it has not been that long. They put me on some medicine to settle my tummy in case an upset tummy is why I am losing weight, and Mommy will have to take some of my poops to the vet to rule out a parasite.

I don't know why Mommy is so worried about my weight loss. I thought losing weight was good. Mommy tries (unsuccessfully) to lose weight all the time! Can I help it if it comes naturally to me?

Mommy is also going to poke me with a needle once a week with B12 at home.

I think that since Mommy has been away for two of the weeks since my last weigh-in that maybe I lost weight because she is the one who gives me yummy-yummy Fancy Feast. Without that, my calorie intake was surely less than normal, but we'll see if I can pack that weight back on now that she is home.

OH MY Dear Handsome Man

I wish I could lose weight - but only a few ounces from the last time.
I am still going pee pee lots so not sure what is going on with me. I go back to VET on the 18th. Purring for you.

Sky let me on the computer - generous of the little witch. HEHE

I hope it was just because you missed your mommy being there to feed you. Purring for you to gain that weight back, Mouse.

(Wouldn't it be great if the mommies could just give us an extra pound they don't want?)

You keep eating Mouse. We love Fancy Feast Turkey. Than again I love almost anything with Turkey. Have a great day.

Love, Kibbles, Francis, & Yoda

Get in an extra meal or two of wet food, and hopefully you'll get that weight back on you, Mouse! I'd give you some of mine if I could!

We're purring that your Mom being gone is what caused this weight loss. Tell your Mom that you need extra Fancy Feast!

Dear Mouse,

Ask your vet to check your thyroid. Hyperthyroidism is one of the main reasons us older cats lose weight. That, and kidney failure. Hopefully you won't have anything wrong, but it can't hurt to check.

Purring for you,
Tigger
