Another update about me

I went to the vet this morning and I'm happy to report that my foot is healing well and there is no sign of infection. With all the anti biotics Grandpa and mum have been pumping me with there wouldn't want to be an infection.

The doc was happy to leave the bandage off but mum told her about my going outside and going bush bashing. So they decided to put another bandage on until Thursday when the stitches will be removed. So I don't do it before then.

Mum was also concerned about me getting outside and pulling the stitches out and I can't blame her for that. They've put a different coloured bandage on it every time it's been done and this time I have a bright green one. Mum won't miss me in it it's that bright and I think this one is my favourite coloured one.

I hope this finds all my mates and their families happy and healthy and I send my purrs to those doing it tough.

I went to the vet this morning

I went to the vet this morning to have my bandage changed and my foot checked. The foot is healing well but I needed to have a new bandage put on it. The vet said as long as I don't chew it or get it wet the foot will be fine.

I even had a choice of colours for my bandage and I got a mancat blue one put on this time. Mum asked for a pink one but the vet said blue is good colour for boys and it matches well with my grey fur. I'd glad the vet won on that one.

I go back to the vet on Friday for another bandage change and check up. At leas this time I can go to the vet offices that are closer to me the drive over was in peak hour traffic and Grandpa was yelling at the other drivers.

I'm so glad to be home. Going to go and find somewhere to have nap. I know my pill will be coming soon.

I'm home from the vet

Happy to say I am home from the vet after my two day stay. As most of you know I had my infected toe removed and fluids for dehydration. Mum didn't realise that I was dehydrated until she took me to the vet on Wednesday. After the fluids I feel a lot better.

I didn't like being caged up for two days but most of yesterday I was too bombed out on pain meds after the surgery to care much. Everyone at the vets were so nice to me and I was good to them.

One of the first things I did after go home and ate a full can of fancy feast was give mum a long cuddle with lots of purrs. I wanted to let her know that there's no hard feelings. I love her and know she only does what's in my best interests at heart.

My foot still hurts a bit but it's getting better. Now that this toe is gone the vet is confident that the infection won't come back. If it does mum has the toe they removed in a cupboard somewhere. So they can test it. Have to say I'll be happy if I never see it again.

Here is a cat fact we learnt at the vet the other day. cats are born with three legs and a spare. I didn't know that. I'm happy to get rid of this toe but I don't want to try the three leg theory out any time soon.

I want to thank everyone that purred for me, sent rosettes and made comments on my diary. They mean a lot to mum and me that there are so many kitties out in catsterland that care about me.

Every message was read and really appreciated.

I hope this diary find my mates and their families happy and healthy and I send my purrs to those doing it tough.

Purrs and lots of hugs your Aussie mate

Ka - zar's surgery went well and he is now in recovery. They want to keep him another night to make sure he is re hydrated before they send him home tomorrow morning.

I want to thank everyone that has taken the time to comment on Ka - zar's diary entries and taken the time to send a rosette. Every message has been read and is really appreciated. I am overwhelmed by the support of everyone and the love for Ka - zar.

A very grateful kitty mum


PS I will write another update when Ka - zar gets home tomorrow. I know he will be dying to get out of that cage already.


I need you all to purr for me

I asked mum to write this for me because I'm spending the night at the vets. Mum took me back to the vets this morning since I bleed a lot the night before. I let them take a urine sample and the markers on my blood test were dehydration more than likely caused by the infection in my toe.

This is the second time it has happen and the vet said it likely to keep happening so mum decided to let them amputate my toe tomorrow. I had to stay and the vet to be re hydrated and then they'll do the operation tomorrow. The vet said it is minor surgery where they will just cut off the infected toe and sew the skin back together. It should take no longer than 30 minutes.

Could you please purr for me that all goes well. I can't wait to get home and be with family.

An update on me

My vet called today to tell us what the blood work had in it. I don't have hypo thyroid or Diabetes but there is a chance I may have early stages of kidney disease. Mum has to go and get some stuff from the vet tomorrow so she can get urine sample from me.

The doc said my levels are only slightly elevated but it enough to warrant further investigation. At this stage everything is highly manageable since it's been caught early. Mum is very happy about this since she already lost two cats to kidney disease and she doesn't want me to be the third.

Mum wants to treat whatever is wrong and then start fattening me up again. Sounds like a great plan to me. I love to eat.

I want to thank all my mates that purred for me I know it made for a better outcome and all your purrs were appreciated.

I hate to ask my mates for purrs again but I just come home from the vet. My general health is good but I've lost 400 grams in the last 12 months since my last wellness exam.

The vet took blood to try and work out why and we'll know the results Thursday or Friday. Can you please purr that the results are good.

An update on Grandpa

As most of you know Grandpa had his first chemo treatment on Monday and I thought I would give you a quick update.

So far the side effects have been minimal and very few. Grandpa is feeling pretty good and is getting out and about. We don't know how long this may last but as a nurse told Grandma and Mum different people are effected differently by chemo and take each day as it comes.

So that's what we've decided to do. It is good advice and I know all of the purrs from mates has had a paw in that. I also want to thank you all for your comments and support. It has meant a lot to me and my family.

I hope my mates and their families are happy and healthy and I send my purrs to those doing it tough.

Another call to purrs

As most of you may know about a week ago we found out that Grandpa needs 6 months of chemo.

This will happen once every two weeks which is 12 treatment cycles as the doctor called them. He starts chemo tomorrow and I was wondering if my mates could join me purring for him.

I am a great believer in the power of the purr it has helped my family before.

Grandpa is going to need chemo for the next three to six months. The three nodes they found were not in his bowel they have not spread. He going to go and have his treatment every two weeks for 3 and half hours.

Can you please keep him in your purrs and prayers that this leads to a full recovery.

Purrs and hugs your Aussie mate
