Arrival Story: When Rufus and I were living in Tennessee, the vet suggested I get Rufus a new companion since he was putting on weight. The next time we were in the vet's waiting room, a man was waiting with a sick kitten. He asked if I was looking for another cat and i told him I couldn't afford a sick cat. He said he had 2 other kittens at home. I went the next night to see them and they were half-feral. He left a window open so they come and go as they pleased. Briana was the only one I could catch, so I settled for her.
I liked the name Alexis, but I've taken a vow of "no vowels" and Lexis sounds too much like the car. I was going to name her Diana but decided it might be too trendy since Princess Diana had recently died, so I settled for Briana (which is now trendy). Her middle name is Siri for the vet Rufus and Bob had as kittens.
It's cold here, but I guess it's cold everywhere in the country. I'm cuddling under the covers with Momma. When she's not here, I curl up in my heated catbed.
Momma dragged me to the vet yesterday just because I haven't been hungry this week. The vet weighed me and I'd gained 1 1/4 pounds. A girl never likes gaining weight, but Momma and the vet were pleased. Momma was worried about my kidneys, so the vet stole blood and piddle from me. I HATE it when they do that. Tonight I overheard Momma telling her friend that my blood work came back and it was even better than last time, so I guess that's the end of that. . .
GACK!!! HOW DARE SHE??!! Momma just snuck up and forced a pill and nasty liquid down my throat! No more cuddles for her. I'm going to my cat bed. I hope you all have somewhere warm to spend the night.
Momma talked to the vet again tonight. I hacked up a huge hairball yesterday and a small one this morning. My regular vet took a look at the x-rays from my ER visit and he thinks one of my lymph nodes looks enlarged. That could mean some sort of inflammation or it could be the big C. I'm going in next week for another x-ray to see if the lymph node looks the same or better (or worse). Any purrs would be appreciated. My brother Rufus had the big C, and he had to go to the vet A LOT! I don't want to go through that.
