A Peek Into the Life of Edgrrr

Murmurs & purrs

A few years ago, my vet noticed a heart murmur & advised my humans to keep an eye on me. Then last year, my murmur was quite noticeable & my vet recommended I be taken to a feline cardiologist, but as the cost was formidable, they couldn't do it. I developed pink eye a few days ago & was seen at the vet's today & now, my humans MUST have my murmur addressed, thankfully my human daddy had some $ set aside so they can afford it, & I am to be seen be a wonderful feline/canine cardiologist on Tuesday, April 5th & my humans are worried sick that they have waited too long to help me. Feline cardiomyopathy is not rare, but it is often deadly & the way we kitties can die from it vary from a quick sudden death (which my step-brother Tigger died from) or a long suffering, painful death by throwing a clot which mimics a stroke or broken legs. To die that way would be horrible, especially since my human Mama loves me like crazy & I lover her the same & as she deals with chronic pain, she would be unforgiving of herself if I were to suffer in any way. We're reading a lot of stuff & we have found that there is good news with the chances of my getting on medication that will help me & prevent me from dying in agony. I am no fan of going to the vet, but if it means I get to spend more time with my humans, I will do all I can to prolong our time together. While my Mama is my favorite human in all the galaxy, my Daddy & I have been bonding & he too was caught leaking water from his eyes when they talked about my heart. I am hoping that there is a chance that I will be amongst other kitties that have done well with medicines & be able to squeeze in at least another 3 to 5 years with them. I am such a goofy guy & I love to fetch my toys & sing as I carry them to lay at my humans feet & there's nothing better than laying on Mama's chest & have her hand feed me turkey or chicken. I also enjoy my friends DingDong (a.k.a. SugarWray) & Panzy (a.k.a. February's Muddy Waters) & it would suck, big time, if I had to leave them so soon. So, my fellow Catster friends, I ask of you to send good purrs & vibes my way, especially if you can do so at around 4:45-:5:15 pm Eastern Time, on Tuesday, April 5th while I am being tested to see what is causing my murmur. To other kitties that have murmurs without a diagnosis as to why, please tell your humans that there are some feline cardiologists that will keep their costs to a minimum, work out a financial plan or accept CareCredit & that even if we're found to have really awful heart conditions, with medications, we can live a longer & less stressful life. My love, headbutts, & purrs to all!
Your Pal,
