I know - I cannot beleive it either...mom has not been around so much, cause she has been kinda busy with a 4 legged tyke. There is alot to his back-story, which he will put on his page as soon as mom remembers where she put the camera cord, as she took pictures to post. Needless to say he is a very sick kitten. He had gotten such a bad uri that it went into pneumonia. His nosie is so clogged that he cannot even smell, so he wasn't able to eat. He was dehydrated and very underweight. The vet says he was rescued just in time. There really is alot more to it - how he got sick & everything, so I am sure he will want to share the news with you. He does not have a name yet, but he is black with a small white spot on his chest & very green eyes. So just keep him in your thoughts for healing purrs. He is doing much better already having subq fluids & 6 doses of clavamox, so we are sure he will be ok. But he is a baby of 3 months old, and well you know how moms get - they worry about us kits.....purrs my friends!

Mom is pretty fired up about Catster staying together. We have lost so many friends in one way or another it really hurts. We love it here & it is obvious that many of you do too. So this week, mom will be letting us three catch up with news, and perhaps a new picture or two. We are not going anywhere, and shall make our presence known. Presents? mom did you say presents? nip perhaps?
Smitty's eyes look much better. Mom gave him lysine powder every day, and it seems to have nipped it in the bud.. Mom did you say nip AGAIN???? ok, NIP BREAK..later pals!

It certainly seems like there has been so much loss here on Catster recently. Kitties having to leave for the Rainbow Bridge, and kitties just leaving Catster. I feel so sad - We have formed a kind of little family here, and it hurts to see them leave. Sometimes mom says she feels guilty posting how well we may be doing, because so many are hurting & ill. I wish I could wave my paw over those sick and heal them, and also to undo whatever made other kitties just up & leave here too. We heartily welcome all the newcomers. We hope for them to see the joys we found here. I just wish the joy had not been lost for those we do not see here anymore. We hope all our friends know that if we should miss a special day, that it is only because mom has been swamped with work and has not gotten here everyday. We purr for all kitties near & far...for those that need healing, for those that need help, and for those that just need a purr, as we all sometimes do. Hoping the sun shines on all and brings you healing. PURRS Tig

Awesome news my friends! I had my ultrasound yesterday, and it appears, that there is no changes, as a matter of fact, she says that the thickening in my heart ACTUALLY GOT BETTER! They cannot hear the murmur anymore either! She said it is not really common for a kitty with HCM to improve, but it can happen. So she told mom KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING! I could flip for joy! Mom says she always holds her breath until the test results are in.
I also want to thank all of you for the wonderful good wishes & presents on my birthday. I had a good day.

A happy mother's day to all of you wonderful mommas out there that love us & take care of us no matter what. I don't know how much money momma has spent keeping me healthy, but I am sure she sacrificed alot to do it, and I am a grateful boy to be here with her & as healthy as a kitty with HCM & FLUTD can be.
love my mom & love you all! purrs!

A Cat's Will

Found this on the Yahoo Heart Disease Group & it is so very beautiful. Posted it too in the Memorial Section on the forums


From the AngelOnMyShoulders list ...

A Cat's Will

Before humans die, they write their last Will & Testament, giving their home
and all they have to those they leave behind. If, with my paws, I could do
the same, this is what I'd ask...

To a poor and lonely stray I'd give:

- My happy home.
- My bowl & cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys.
- The lap, which I loved so much.
- The hand that stroked my fur & the sweet voice which spoke my name.

I'd Will to the sad, scared shelter cat, the place I had in my human's
loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

So when I die, please do not say, "I will never have a pet again, for the
loss and pain is more than I can stand."

Instead, go find an unloved cat, one whose life has held no joy or home and
give MY place to HIM.

This is the only thing I can give -- The love I leave behind.

 

pretty great bday present

Well the vet called today & after they did the second test on my blood, she said I DO NOT have hyperthyroidism! So mom says that is a pretty great birdday present! So all I really need now is a good report from the cardiologist checkup next week. Mom was starting to feel really bad about the bladder issue. But after doing some more research, & hearing from a few other kitties too it seems that sometimes even eating nothing but excellent grain free canned food, you still can have issues. So hopefully momma is not blaming on herself too much. So we'll see when we talk to the vet next week maybe I can eat some of the rx food, and still eat the good stuff too. Or maybe just take some meds to keep in line. Anyways, I am having a pretty great birdday. Mom says I will get a teeny lick of vanilla ice cream, but just a teeny weeny teeny one. Thanks for everyone's wishes & purrs. Mom has to work all day tomorrow, but we will be getting to all our thankies (& Smitty too) prob on Thursday. So thanks again all my friends. Oh and Maizy only hissed at me once today, so all in all - pretty great day!

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

Today was my turn to see the new vet. She said I was a handsome guy (of course) and my ears were so clean you could eat off them. (ok I know that is a good thing but ew) I was pretty chill, then they took me to get blood & pee. Well, mom heard me growl at them down the hall. She said to Nana, "well Tig does not like anyone messing around down there anymore". Dr came back in & said I did good, but that it was ok for me to be a little grouchy cause I have dealt with alot & she knows I am touchy about the bladder area. Wow... can you believe it? She understood! She cannot hear my heart murmur, and everything is is clean clear & good. She will call mom with my blood & pee results tomorrow. My heart rate is perfect. She was so thorough she asked what time I had my atenolol so that she would know what my heart rate should based on the time when I took it.So now all I have to schedule is my annual ultrasound with my cardiologist, which should be as soon as she will be at their location. It is so great that it is the same cardiologist that went to our other vet office. Mom said something about my BirdDay coming up soon. I will be 4 years old already! I still act like a kitten though. Well, hope everyone has a good weekend.

 

goodbye my friend Bump

I just read about Bumpurr. Mom is crying. Of course we feel sad & we feel so awful for anyone that has lost a kitty, but Bumpurr was a special part of my life, because in a search on HCM, one of his postings came up, and that is how we even found Catster & how to fight this awful disease. I am glad that his momma was with him when he left for the bridge, and I know he is bounding around free. I also hope that Lisa & Bump can feel all of the love from so many kitties that they helped. Goodnight my friend, sleep well.
