Arrival Story:
As I was watching TV, I heard a loud screech coming from outside. I looked out and a big cat was chasing this little kitten that ran by and up the stairs to the 3rd floor landing above. The adult cat saw me and ran the other way. Little bit saw me and was going to jump off the landing. I ran back inside, grabbed a cloth stuff sack for hiking, tossed it over little bit, grabbed her, got bit 3 times, managed to get her back in the house and into one of the cat carriers. For such a little thing she sure did make a lot of noise hissing and spitting at everyone. The neighbor upstairs is a vet tech and brought me some flea killer and dewormer, and the next night a small cage for little bit. She got named Viola after putting up a violent fight getting checked out and medicated.

Bio:
We have decided she would fit in with the rest of the household and she has completely calmed down and is a sweet cuddler when you hold her now. So her name got changed to Missy. Which is short for mischief. We just found out recently before her 1st birthday that she has Asthma. Luckily it can be managed by medication.

The cardiogram

Well....momma took me to the docs again. where they shaved a patch under my front leg, spread some nasty goop where they shaved, and then I held real still while they looked at my heart.

MY HEART IS NORMAL!!!!! NO HCM!!!!! NO HEARTWORM!!!!

I still have to take theophylline for my asthma...but momma is weaning me off the methylprednisone and lasix.

Momma says she is soooo glad she got a second opinion before she gave me the first docs meds. The medication she gave momma would have killed me.

I just wish we hadn't had to wait 6 months to get the cardiogram. But the doctor wanted to make sure I was big enough.


THe WHOLE family is soooo happy for me. Momma got me and the rest of the furkids fancy feast to celebrate and pappa took momma out for dinner. We were all so happy.

 

Yikes

Will, I'm on my 3rd trip to the doctors in the last 3 months. Momma can't afford all but basic examination stuff. This time I went in having a hard time breathing again. Turns out I have asthma. NOw the doctors can't decided if I have astma, HCM, or both. Hopefully momma can get 300 dollars together sometime soon and can get me the echocardiogram so the doctors can tell what is wrong. Now I'm taking lasix twice a day and this nasty fish flavored stuff that is a bronchiodialtor and steroid mixed just for me twice a day.

BUt I am still playful, and I can't get enough food. Momma has to ration me or I'll eat everything put in front of me and Lyle's food, and velvet's food, and Blaze's food.

 

I'm special now

Momma had to take me to the vet Friday morning. I was wheezing and coughing and gasping for air and she got really worried that I got into something again. As it turns out I have a congenital heart problem called HCM and momma caught it early. I have to take Lasix right now to ge tthe fluids out of my chest and I get to eat the same special food blaze does....I like the royal canin Renal LP. The vet said that I didn't get sicker before cause I was still little.

I find out in 2 weeks how bad my heart is...I get to have the nice lady at the vets do an echocardiogram on me......they get to tickle my belly again.
