Getting Sick

It's been a long time since I've been here. Doubt my old boyfriend is still even around. Just dropping in to let everyone know how I'm doing. Don't even remember if I posted when things started getting bad.

Last year, mama noticed I was losing weight. Blood work was done twice and my ALT levels were high, though lower on the second test. My weight loss seemed to level off at the time.

This year, mama noticed I was again losing weight. We went back to the vet for a recheck and more blood work. I've got some kind of liver disease. They asked about exploratory surgery for a biopsy, but mama doesn't want me miserable if there's nothing can be done. My liver is very enlarged and my bilirubin is high. We've done medicines and tried an appetite stimulant, but it was going to drive me and mama both crazy! It made me feel funny so I walked around meowing and crying. DON'T let a vet tell you Cyproheptadine won't cause a cat to be overly anxious!

Anyway, I'm done with the meds (still on Denosyl) and still not eating much. Not gaining any weight. Mama mostly keeps me isolated in the spare bedroom so the rest of the kits don't pick on me since I'm so little now. But I'm still purring and love for mama to sleep with me a bit. I get out to wander around with the others for a bit. So even though I'm not gaining any weight and it's likely I won't be around for a long time, life is still good.
