Some thoughts from a kitty's perspective

it's always something

Even though I got a good physical report from the new vet, there may still be some trouble...She said that my urine ph is creeping up & alkaline. No crystals, but she is pushing the canned RX food since I still seem to be having trouble being on all regular canned, and she is worried that I can head for trouble again. She does seem to understand about the wet though. Mom is dumfounded, cause all I have eaten in over 9 months is grain free wet food, filtered water (good filter too) - nothing else - well ok I had a couple licks of whipped cream, but I cannot help myself.. On top of that, vet is concerned that my thyroid level is in the higher end of the gray area. She ordered another test for the lab to do (& another $100 eesh)- her concern is cause I am so young & have heart disease, and the atenolol could mask a fast heartbeat, which would have been a tip off for thyroid disease I guess. So we will see what it says. Next week is my ultrasound with my same cardiologist...mom says she just wants good news... I guess for some kitties, the all wet food diet is not enough... I was really hoping for an awesome 4th birthday tomorrow....Mom says not to worry, it will all work out, but we are a little bit worried.
purrs, a slightly worried Tigger, and a very worried momma

I will be there with you sweet Tigger! we are all purring for you...Mom has realized that no matter what your Mom does or doesn't do things happen....Mom fed me the best food, gave me the best home and love, but still I got the nasty C....little did she know I probably got it because I had kittens and wasn't fixed when I was tiny...so your Mom can just do the best and hope for the best...us kitties are a mistery that is for sure...

Hang in there and we love you....sending butterflies from heaven.

Thank you Alex & Queen T. Prayers & purrs are a wondrous thing. & I promise not to try & eat the butterflies either! Mom just says that it is better to catch things right away. We caught my heart disease early & it makes a difference. Thank you again for your thoughts sweet ladies!

Sending you lots of purrs Tigger! I was diagnosed with urinary crystals just before my 2nd birthday. I wouldn't eat the prescription wet food, so I had to be on SO dry until the crystals went away. Not the best ingredients, but it does work at normalizing the urine ph. Mom has done a lot of research on FLUTD, and some kitties still get it despite eating all wet food.

Paws crossed for you buddy!
