So excited we got to see our baby boy today. He looked so scared when they brought him in to the room. He looked good, better than when we left him on Saturday.
He purred and wanted me to give him scritches & rubs.
He used the leather bench for his scratcher, guess he misses getting to do his nails.
He is eating a little good sign.
Gave my sweet boy lots of hugs & kisses, how I miss my Zekie, house is not the same without him.
It was hard to give him back and leave him there, but I know he is in good hands, all your purrs & prayers are helping.

We won't know how he is dong until Wednesday when they get bloodwork results. He may or may not be able to come home.
Every day he is doing good, he is here is a blessing, it is up to him & God. I know after seeing today he wants to get better and come home again.
Will update again


Update on Zeke

Our vet just called me she said Zeke is doing good, but is nervous because dogs are barking. That was my concern leaving him there, they have a boarding facility. The techs there are checking on Zeke during the night when the vet isn't there.

He is peeing a lot which is great that is what we want. He is eating hooray, thank goodness I took food I knew he would eat with us yesterday and of course one of his blankets I rubbed it on me to get my smell on it to help him feel better.

She thinks if we come up tomorrow to spend time with him will help him, so now I have to convince my husband to let me go see my sweet Zeke.

I didn't sleep well last night worrying about Zeke he is so sensitive.

Thank you all for your purrs & prayers they certainly are helping him. He is still not out of the woods and it is all up to him & how his kidneys do. He is in God's hands, I pray for him to come through this so we can have our boy with us for a long time.
I will give an update tomorrow.

Zeke is at the vet, not good

The vet called,Zeke's numbers did not come down one actually went up. So he is now at the vet getting VI fluids for 3 or 4 days. We are giving him a 2nd chance, but it doesn't look good. I just pray this will help him and he will be here for more time.

I have been crying since I got the call. We decided on the vet instead of ER cost less especially if he doesn't pull through. I already miss my boy and I am sick to my stomach with fear and sadness.
Please keep Zeke in your prayers
Thanks you for your prayers, we both need them. Trying to do this in car we are on our way home now


Zeke's vet appt.

We took Zeke to the vet yesterday, he Meowed all the way 45 mins. he was not happy at all.

I took in the urine sample, he's lost 6ozs., she looked into his mouth she had magnifying glasses on to make sure she got a good look, she smelled his breath as well. She said his mouth is bad but she has seen worse. She still thinks he isn't eating because of his kidneys. She felt it was best to get him on antibiotics to help him just in case he does have an infection. They took blood so they can check his kidney numbers, pray they are coming done, also to make sure nothing else is going on. Now we wait, she's suppose to call today, we will give you the update later.

He still Meowed on the way home, just as we got closer his meows were frantic I knew he needed to pee, luckily I have wee wee pads in his carrier, we didn't get home in time. My poor boy gets so upset when that happens.

I am not giving up, I keep praying he will turn around and feel better, I keep having the same feeling of dread like I did when Tallulah was so sick.

This is very hard on us both, he now looks at me like I am going to hurt him because I am the one giving him his medication, he hates getting the fluids as well, he lays on his side, then starts pushing backwards, I have to hold on to the needle and lean over him so he can't get away. Not sure how long we can keep doing this to him!

He actually slept with me for a while last night, he hasn't done that in some time.

He is up now sitting at the window he loves sitting at the window, he sits on his heating pad, my sweet sweet boy

Give you update later, purrs & prayers for my Zekie


Zeke is still not doing well

Zeke is still not doing that good, I started giving him food stimulant he is eating a little more, I have given to him once a day, but now I think I need to do it twice a day like I am doing with the pepcid.

He misses the box when he pees so wee wee pads all over, not his fault I feel so bad for him.

I called the vet yesterday asked if I could bring him in earlier than next week and is they could have the vet call me. He is very thin

My gut is telling me his teeth and mouth have gotten really bad with his kidney failure. I wanted to see if she could concentrate on his mouth, give him antibiotics as well as blood work to see if his kidney numbers are down or not. She thinks it is his kidneys that are making him not want to eat and she will check to see if he has ulcers in his mouth.

Right now I just don't know if my boy has it in him to pull through this, I pray that he does otherwise I may have to made the dreaded decision.....but know I am not giving up on him he could pull through this.

Vet said we could go ahead if we really want and have his teeth done, she didn't think anything would happen but we will see, not rushing into anything now.

My poor sweet mellow Zeke is just now himself I miss that boy, I am very concern about him and I cry a lot because I know my boy and this is hard on him.

Just wanted all of you know how he is doing, will update you after we go to the vet tomorrow and when we get the results of his blood work...

Thank you all that have been here and have prayed for him. Keep praying for Zeke he needs the help and a miracle .

Zeke and Peggy


Thank you for your purrs and prayers

Thank you my sweet friends for all of your purrs and prayers, Mom thinks that are helping me a little.

It is hard to tell if I am doing better without getting blood taken and see if my numbers are lowering. Mom really thinks part of me not feeling well is my teeth.

It all started with Mom taking me in for blood work so I could get my teeth cleaned etc., well that all changed when Mom got the news I have CRF, we had to wait to make sure I am stable with my kidney numbers. The Vet told Mom start my fluids only once a week, Mom questioned her about only once....Then a couple days later they called and wanted Mom to bring me back to have my blood pressure taken, it was high when they check, geez what do they expect I am stressed and again a week later back in for another check, my blood pressure was fine, the third time fine.

Mom feels she should have started me 3 times a week like our vet started Xena on when she was first diagnosed, she should have followed her gut instinct, she trusted her vet in San Diego, not this vet....she thinks things might of been different so from now on gut instinct.....

All this time Mom and Dad are still not trusting our vet, lost the trust after what happened with Mia...anyway Mom starting looking on line again to see if there was another vet she could take us to, she found one 40 mins. away they have a regular vet and a holistic vet they work together....hooray Mom is happy and decides to take me and Mia there first.

They are nice, the vet doesn't like to do anything that is unnecessary like expensive test the vet and ER wanted to do on Mia. Nothing is showing up, hasn't for a year, Mia has regurgitation, she is eating and going potty so no need for all of those tests. She told Mom and Dad how to do her food and all is well mostly.

then I went and she didn't understand why they were so concerned about my blood pressure, so I am fine no high blood pressure for now. But Mom is very concerned that I need my teeth worked on and my kidneys. Because they did my blood work again and in about a month my kidney numbers rose very high, I am for the most part in kidney failure. Vet told mom to start my fluids every day, give me my homeopathic kidney medication. Mom noticed I am have a lot of acid in my tummy, making me sick and throwing up white foam. So now I get pepcid 2 times a day and I am feeling somewhat better. I am getting slippery elm to help my tummy and intestines too and Forti flora.

Still not eating like I should, Mom is having to hand feed me and she keeps trying to find something I will eat, not much.

I am up and walking around, Mom says it is kind of walking around aimlessly, sleeping in different places, haven't been spending anytime in moms closet like I used to do, I do run in to the litter box and I do miss so Mom has wee wee pads all over by the box.

I am sleeping more than normal, Mom is always checking on me, petting me and I see her cry, I know she is worried about me, we both hope I can pull through this and feel better soon. Every day I am here and feeling so so, Mom feels it is a good sign, I go back to my new vet next Wednesday in the morning, we will know more then. Vet told Mom I am unable to get my toofies taken care of, if not Mom wants to see if there is anything she can give me to help my toofies feel better....bad part is if I don't get better I may never be able to get my toofies cleaned again. Mom won't risk it and neither will my Vet...thank goodness

So that is about all for now, I am hanging in there, we know all your prayers and purrs are helping, and believe me we are not ready to give up....after all I am my Mom's sweet mellow boy...a mama's boy,

Mom goes to her doctor appt. tomorrow so we won't be around, lets hope they help Mom too...



Zeke is still not feeling well

It has been almost a week since we took Zeke to the vet and we found out his kidney numbers are high. We have been giving him fluids everyday, I am not sure it is helping him. He isn't eating much, he hides in Milo's crate, or under things. He just isn't feeling well at all.

I pray he will pull through this and will feel better, be himself. Just not sure if he has it in him, I feel like I may loose him.
I know not many of our friends are around it really is a shame they gave up on catster. But if any of you see this and go to FB please let our friends know my Zeke needs all of your prayers and POTP. We have another week before we take him back for recheck.

Still not myself, loosing weight

September 30th 2015 3:42 pm

Sorry I haven't given you all an update on me, I am still not feeling good, still loosing weight and just not eating much. Mom is beside herself as you can imagine.

Mom & Dad took me back to see my new vet 40 mins. away yesterday. Mom really thought it is my teeth, it still could be, but vet was leaning more to my kidneys. They checked me all over, weighed me, 8lbs. 10ozs., in March I was over 10lbs..
They took blood and the vet called Mom this morning,my kidney numbers have gone way up from a month ago.

My bun # was 50 it is now 123
My Creatinine was 3.4 it is now 9.7

My first vet started me on fluids once a week, mom questioned that, our vet in San Diego started Xena on fluids 3 times a week. My new vet said 2 times a week, mom still questioned that. She feels she should have followed her gut and did the fluids 3 times. So now I have to have fluids everyday for 2 weeks, go back to new vet to recheck my kidney numbers.

We are praying the numbers come down and I will feel better.

Just pray for me to help get my kidney numbers down.

Not feeling so good Zeke, sure hope I feel better soon.


I have Chronic Renal Failure

My vet called and the results are in, I have Chronic Renal Failure just like Xena. Mom thought is might be either kidney or thyroid, she is so glad it isn't the nasty horrible "C". She knows I can live for a long time with kidney now Mom has 2 of us to do fluids.

I got my first fluids this afternoon, after Xena got hers. Mom says I am really a good boy because I did great, I didn't relax completely like Xena is, but I just laid there and then it was over. I get my fluids once a week now, have to be rechecked in 2 weeks to see how I am doing. If I am doing good, no changes and then I will get my appointment to have my toofies cleaned.

I go in on Friday to get my blood pressure taken it will be a quick visit, I don't even have to see the vet.

Mom says it sucks having 3 older pets and all have illnesses, she feels sad, it certainly takes Mom a long time to get medication in us, fix special food and having to hold Mia after she eats to help her with keeping her food down. Oh yeah Mia is doing better, finally ate on her own last night and she is starting to eat her special food Mom makes for her along with FreshPet chicken. Mom also says she is suppose to be retired, but taking care of us is work, too bad she doesn't get paid for all the work she has to do.

I am feeling better, I even pooped this morning, I am eating and eating, now I am sleeping near Mom by our window. I even slept on Moms bed last night, then her recliner, was waiting for her to wake up and give me food.

Thank you for all the POTP'S they worked, and all your messages. You are all the best when it comes to being her for us. We certainly have had a lot going on lately, Mom says she needs a vacation....oh she can't, she can't leave us...



I am home from vet & no answers til tomorrow

Ok I don't like going to the vet, I try to make myself small & disappear. I haven't lost anymore weight, they invaded me,like take my temp. and felt me up, asked lots of questions. Then they whisked me off to take X rays they wanted to see how my lungs look since I have asthma & respiratory issues. They don't look too bad but signs of bronchial damage nothing to worry about, but that is to be expected. My tummy & intestines look good to, nothing showed up. Blood taken they are sending it out to get better thorough results. Oh yeah they took urine too, so humiliated! So now we wait for the results to come back.

Guess what I came home and I am acting like myself again, ate been out with mom, walking around. Mom thinks me pooping this morning finally helped me feel better again.
If everything checks out mom will make appt. for me to get my toofies cleaned. She worries but knows getting my teeth cleaned will help me.

Well that is it for today once we hear from vet we will let you all know.
Thank you friends for my gifts and your support. Catster is the best!
