Update from Dr. Rhonda

Hi Everyone -

Mama & I just wanted to post the results of my tests at the vet on Saturday. It was MUCH better news than Mama had even hoped for!

Dr. Rhonda says that everything is fine, except high billirubin, which means I have a gall bladder infection, and a MILD case of fatty liver syndrome. She says Mama needs to force feed me (yuck!) meat baby food 3 - 4 times a day and give me sub-q fluids once a day or so (ow!), and Clavamox 2 X a day (nasty!), and I should get better quickly.

Mama is SO relieved, and she's being very pro-active with all the treatments, so I guess I'd better get well if I want her to leave me alone! :)

Thanks for all the Power of the Paw and to all my friends who sent purrs and prayers our way. It's so nice to have friends who care to share with!

Purrs & Kisses,
Patrick & Mama

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm not feeling at all good. Mama took me to see Dr. Rhonda yesterday, and she says I'm VERY jaundiced and have lost weight. That means that I may be suffering from fatty liver syndrome and that's the BEST case scenario. Mama is VERY worried and I wanted to ask you all to send her lots of love-purrs & support, because she's afraid I may not get better.

I've been tagged by my friend Marilyn Monreow!

Here are the rules of the game:

Each player starts with seven random facts about themselves. Cats who are tagged need to write in their diary about the seven things and the rules. You need to choose seven cats to tag and list their names. Don't forget to leave them a comment in their pmail that they have been tagged and to read your diary.

Seven Random Facts:

1. I'm polydactyl (I have extra toes on all 4 feet).

2. Mama rescued me from the pound just before Christmas.

3. I'm the friendliest of all my siblings. I'm the official guest greeter!

4. I hate having my ears cleaned and my nails clipped!

5. I love to give Mama kisses.

6. I like bird-watching from the den window.

7. I love to cuddle with Mama on the couch.

Seven kitties I have tagged:

What a Week!

Well, we had a very busy week around here! First, Mama flooded the house when she was doing laundry, and we had to swim for it! I did NOT like the water, and tried to stay up above the floor until Mama got the water cleaned up.

Then we had to be off the 'puter for two days because Mama was worn out from cleaning up the mess and didn't feel good. What a bummer!

Then we had a rainstorm and windstorm and the last 3 days have been really cool - mid 50's - very cool for this time of year! Strange!

Then yesterday, Mama took off with Uncle & Aunt Chris and took Keifer, Charity & Camille with her! I was upset that I didn't get to go until they got back and told me that they had to go to the vet! Whew! Glad I got to stay home!

What a week! I wonder what will happen next?


Spring Exploring

Wow! We kinda missed spring this year, and went right into summer! It's been really nice outside, and lots of warm weather. Ian and I keep trying to get out of the screenporch to do a little exploring, but Mama keeps catching us! She's no fun at all!

I got out without her knowing the other day and had a wonderful time smelling all the great smells in the backyard. I visited Auntie's foster kitties, and my cousin kitty, Olive. Then I had a good roll in the dirt, and even chased some bugs! I really had a good time!

Of course, when Mama found out, she made me come in and brushed all the good dirt out of my coat. And I had it just right, too! Oh, well - I guess that's moms for you! I can't wait till next time!

I have a diary all my own! I guess it will be fun to write down all of my adventures. Just today, I chased Ian around the house, laid on the screen porch in the sun and had a special canned-food treat. (This has been one of my quieter days!)

I made some new friends today, too, and Mama decorated all of our pages really pretty with special pointers and backgrounds. Mine is in honor of St. Paddy's day (because I'm a Patrick, you know!). I hope all my friends will visit and see how neat it is!
