Wow!

Someone has gone onto all of our pages and left us some really nice presents. But we don't know who our Secret Santa is!!

We appreciate them so much! But we really have NO CLUE who left them for us!

We'll try to do a little detective work, but in the meantime, if you see this, Santa, please know we THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!!!!

Hooray! I DON'T Have Heartworms!

Mommy just got a phone call from my vet. My EKG came out clean! I have no signs of heart disease or of an active heartworm infection! Mommy is SOOOO relieved!

The doc is going to keep me on a tapering dose of prednisone. She wants me to check back in in two months, especially if I start coughing again after I'm off the prednisone. At that point, the doc can check for heartworm antigens (the toxins thrown off by heartworms) or asthma, and if either one shows up, she'll put me back on a low dose of prednisone.

Apparently, it's possible that I never had an infection, even though the antibodies indicate that I was exposed. Hooray for antibodies!

If you live in a mosquito prone area like I do, you might want to think about putting your babies on a heartworm preventative like Revolution if they're not on it now.

Thank you for all the purrs, POP, and purrayers. They were answered!

Purrs,
Perla

 

Tomorrow...

Mommy says I have to go see the white coats again tomorrow. They are going to try to look inside my heart to see if there are any worms in there. Worms! Yuk! How would a worm get in there?

Anyway, mommy says it won't hurt, but I will be at the vet all day tomorrow. Plus, I have to start taking pills. Yuk! I hate pills! Mommy says she will let everyone know what the vet finds out. She is really hoping that my heartworm infection happened a long time ago so I can start feeling better.

In the meantime, I really wouldn't mind getting some of that POP sent my way.

I may have heartworms

Mommy learned about the symptoms of feline heartworms from other Catsters, and it got her suspicious. Many of them sounded like what I've been experiencing.

They took some blood out of my arm (ouch!), and it turns out that I DO have antibodies for heartworms in my system. The white coats don't know if I have a current infection yet, but I have definitely been exposed at some point in my life.

If you see this, please purray that this is all in my past and that I will be an OK girl from now on.

Purrs,
Perla

 

I WANT to go out!!!!

Last summer, mommy started keeping me inside all the time. That was OK over the winter, when it was cold and shivvvery, I did not mind. But now....

the birdies are chirping, and I can smell the warm, warm air outside, and I see the flowers and the bright sunshine. I am hanging around the front door more and more, hoping to make a break for it.

Well, yesterday evening, it happened. Daddy stepped out the front door to fetch something from his car, and I zoomed out! Freedom! It was sweet for all of the 30 seconds it lasted. Alas, daddy went back outside (making sure Emma didn't get out too), snatched me up, brought me back inside, and slammed the door -- closing off my last avenue of escape.

Mom says I can't go out because we live on a busy street. But I know how to watch out for myself. (stomps paw)

Grrrr!!! I made sure they knew how mad I was! I think I will try to make a break for it again tonight.

Til then....

Where's Our Food???

This morning, mommy got up as usual. But something is not so usual this morning.

Usually, the very first thing mommy does is feed us cats. But this morning, she didn't. Daisy and Emma are hanging around the pantry door giving mommy sad looks. We're all wondering what's going on.

Mommy mentioned something about taking me to the v-e-t. Oh no! I think that's the place where the humans in white coats poke sharp sticks at you and look into your ears and mouths. Yech! I hate that. I hope I'm not the one who has to go to the v-e-t this morning.

I overheard mommy and daddy talking about taking me for a sonogram. What's that? I think it's a picture of my insides. And did I hear them say something about me not eating anything after 10:00 p.m. so I won't get sick?!?!

Well, no matter who has to go in "the box," someone please tell mommy to put food out for the other ones so they'll stop meowing about being hungry!

Purrs,
Perla
