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.

 

I'm hiding behind the armoire.

My vet appointment is tomorrow, but I'm hiding now. Momma is worried because I won't eat either.

 

Purrs Needed

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.

 

Dragged to the ER vet!

What an ordeal! Yesterday I threw up my anti-nausea medicine in the morning along with a hairball (third one this week), then all day I just wanted to be with Momma and I was purring a lot and it was loud and gurgling so Momma didn't like it. She was afraid I was in pain. Then when Not-the-Momma came over, I sat and purr/gurgled with him and he told Momma I didn't seem right and might have been breathing funny, so since HE noticed something was wrong, I got whisked off to the ER.

Well THAT stopped the purring in a hurry.

So Momma told the vet tech what had happened and how I ate after she gave me the appetite stimulant and how I chewed some cat grass with my back molars, etc. The ER vet agreed that I was breathing rapidly, but wasn't sure if it was just stress, so they took a chest x-ray just to be safe. I put up a good fight. Then with the chest x-ray, they saw something that looked like a possible obstruction in my stomach or colon, so they wanted to do 2-3 abdominal x-rays or keep me overnight for observation. So Momma wasn't about to let them hold me hostage, so I had 2 more x-rays, and the stuff is in my colon and will hopefully pass.

But my gums are all inflamed, so they gave me a pain medicine. They took blood and urine and will call today with more results. The quick test last night showed my kidney values were worse, but it could be from dehydration so I got subQ fluids too and a shot of the anti-nausea medicine.

So today I'm purring but not too loudly and not gurgling. Momma thinks my toothies is the problem and is going to talk to our regular vet about having them cleaned - if it's worth the risk at my age. AT MY AGE! HMPF! Doesn't she know 16 is the new 6? I could still take on those young ITs. Let me at them!

 

I'm a DDP!

Yay! I'm glad I was able to get in to Catster today, although I have gotten booted off several times.

Monday & Tuesday mornings I hacked up huge hairballs. Momma wonders where all the hair came from since she doesn't see me grooming all that often.

I also didn't finish my dinner last night or breakfast this morning so Momma gave me the nasty appetite stimulant. BLECH!

 

I'm in!

We've been having so much trouble logging in to our account, but I'm glad I made it in.

Momma wants me to post in my diary so she can track my health. She's so nosy sometimes. Whatever.

Breakfast this morning was chicken chunks in gravy, but I only ate the gravy. For weeks now, I've been refusing to eat kibble, but Momma didn't really notice since that orange IT 2.0 was eating my leftovers. When I went to the vet in February I had lost 1/4 pound in a few months. Since I'm petite in the first place, they all thought it was a big deal.

Since then, I've been getting all canned food and when that didn't work, they put me on an appetite stimulant that I HATE!!! Momma even took it back to the pharmacy to get them to add more chicken flavor, but I still HATE it and fight tooth and claw whenever she tries to give it to me. Then I froth at the mouth to get the disgusting taste out. Once or twice I've even been able to vomit it back up! heh, heh, heh.

She's also tried giving me some anti-nausea medicine which helps with the nausea but not with my appetite. Momma's worried that something in my mouth might be bothering me. She tried to look the other day. I say tried because I fought like mad. The vet doesn't want to have to clean my teeth because HE THINKS I'm old. I don't want to have my teeth cleaned, so for once we're in agreement.

Now that black IT is bothering Momma on the computer, so I'll wrap this up. I'm not saying what's wrong with me - maybe I'm just faking so I can get canned food. Yeah, that's it. I don't need to go to the vet again.

Ever.

 

Sweet Sixteen? Whatever.

It's my birthday. I got a catnip carrot and catnip banana.

Momma took me to the vet a couple of weeks ago. My bloodwork was OK. The vet said it was good that I was still "feisty" at my age.

I've had some tummy troubles, so Momma made an appointment for the vet to do an ultrasound on my tummy. He'll also take a look at my kidneys which often give older cats problems. If you can spare a purr for me, I'd appreciate it.

 

Guess who's wearing the cone of shame?

I'll give you three hints:

1. He's stupid.

2. He's orange.

3. He's been licking his belly raw and now has a bacteria infection and yeast. GROSS!

Cone of Shame

 

I'll take duh for $200, Alex.

Last week, Momma dragged me to the vet. They took my blood pressure and, surprise, surprise, it was high. Well, duh!

Even Momma said to the vet, "Um, you know it's going to be high, don't you?" MOL. But the vet said it will at least give us a baseline to see if it goes even higher.

Hmpf!

 

Ahoy Mateys!

Today be meow like a purrate day. My family usually loves dressing up as pirates, but we're not really celebrating this year. I'm still stuck at Not-the-Momma's house and it looks like I'll be here for another week! Those little ITs came for a couple of days last week and were locked in the living room. They were really unhappy but I got to taunt them through the French door, so I had some fun at least. Momma's bathroom is finished finally, but the condo association has to replace some pipes in the living room ceiling. So I'm banished until that's finished so Momma can lock the ITs in MY bedroom. Not fair!

So our internet access is limited since Momma has to use her laptop on her lap in bed with no mouse. She talks about getting wireless internet but she hasn't yet. I'll send my thank yous out when I can, but it probably won't be before next week.
