We really cannot thank everyone enough for the well wishes, and support. Mom was really really scared and Catster was where we came for help & ideas. I am doing pretty good today. I can finally piddle without growling, and I ate wet food all day, just had a couple kibbs early this morning cause of course at 5am we are all going to expire on the spot if "The Dad" does not feed us NOW. So Mom switched the 1/3 cup we used to get with 1/8, and instructions to make it VERY SCANT - like 6 bits! On days he does not get up that early, we won't get any kibbs, just wet. Now we just gotta find a few that will make us all happy (right good luck with that Mom) HA! And Mom is being so over protective, I get an audience every time I use the box so she can check it! hmm a little privacy Mom would ya huh? Supposed to go back in 2 weeks, and hopefully we can find a new vet. Mom is just not comfortable anymore, and she says if it was a people dr, she would switch just the same. I slept on the bed with Mom all night, and she said it was the first good sleep she has had for days! purrs, Tigger

 

I'm Home!

Mom picked me up about noon, and boy am I glad to be home! First thing I did was rub all over Mom's legs, and then I had to run around & sniff. Then I ate some wet food. I want to thank everyone for all the purrs. It helps so much to know other kits are in your corner (& their humans too)
thanks Hilda for the POTP, Alley cat & fam for the cross, Bobcat for the heart you sent from heaven, and Tigger/Cali & Sobe for my ribbon, and Kaci for the lovely cross too. Now all I have to do is rest, and eat wet food, and drink. Smitty was so glad to see me, has been following me around since he saw me! I have to go back in 2 weeks for a checkup, but hopefully things will be getting back to normal.....

The vet said they took the catheter out about 6, and things looked good. They are doing an xray in the morning to make sure there is nothing squirrely inside. (hmm no one mentioned this until Mom asked about it) but as long as my bladder stays empty and I do ok, I can come home! I am sure that Mom will have washed my blankie in my favorite wooden box, and have the fluffy purple robe out for me to knead on. Because some of the confidence has been lost, we are looking for a new vet. There is a cat only clinic in Flossmoor, IL, which is not too far away, so we are looking into that one. Waiting to sleep in my own bed - (or Mom & The Dad's) Tigger

 

I miss my Mom & The Dad

I had to go straight from the e-vet to the regular vet, and I have to stay there until tomorrow. They put a yucky collar on me that I do not like, but it is so I won't pull the catheter out. Mom is trying to figure out the best wet food for me. I have been eating wet, but now I cannot have any dry. They want me to eat the prescription stuff, but Mom says no, too much salt for my heart! and grains! And all these medicines I have to take - even more yucky! I just want to come home. I meowed at Mom and she was crying cause she missed me and did not want to leave me. One more day....

 

I don't feel so good

I was rushed to the E vet this morning. It turns out that I was blocked and could not go, I was screaming & growling it hurt very much. I have to spend the night at the E vet, and Mom is so worried, and missing me so much. I want to be home too. We don't understand how 10 days ago there were no crystals only infection, and now even though I was taking meds, I get blocked. Mom is really freaking out because she is so worried about my heart & me being stressed. The e vet is very nice & seems to be taking good care of me. My blood came out ok - no damage to kidneys, so that is good. I just want to be better. I miss my bed, and my family! Please purr for me.

 

restful day

I think I am feeling better. Mom says the spots in the litter are getting a little bit bigger. We don't expect an overnight miracle, but it is in the right direction. I even played a bit yesterday morning. The Dad tied one of our mousies to an old kids fishing pole, and he said he was going kitty fishing! I jumped for it a few times, and even Maizy pounced on the moving mousie. Smitty went berserk over it. The Dad cast it down the few back stairs to the landing, and he kept popping down them stairs and back up. But it was good exercise for him - he is not so thin & slinky like me. He needs to drop a few ounces. I slept on Mom's chest and rested my head on her arm for along time this morning, and she just rocked me. I have laid like that on her ever since she found me when I was a kitten. I haven't really eaten a lot, but she keeps giving me extra wet food when I take my antibiotic. So I guess the best thing is for me to rest. And thank the powers above that I do not have crystals, just the infection. Thank you everyone for your purrs & thoughts for me to get better. Thank you Nellie for the pretty rainbow (it is so gloomy here, we could use one!) Thanks to my pretty Hazel Lucy for the bunny. I am waving my paw to you up in heaven! THanks to Buddie for the blue ribbon - Mom says I get first place in snuggling! and thanks to my anonymous power of the paw gift whoevercat gave it to us.

 

What now?

Well, yesterday Mom noticed that I kept digging in my box, and then when I sat for a long time, I only had a teeny sprinkle. I then did this in and out about 5-6 more times within 45 minutes. So after asking in the forum to confirm what she thought, the vet was called, and in I went. Luckily I do not have any crystals, it just shows lots of infection. I got 2 shots, and one of them really hurt! I hardly ever growl or hiss ('cept when I am playing with my little brother) and I let out a growl at that dr & hissed at her! And now I have to take all this medicine besides my heart pill. Momma gave me extra wet food, and I got some with my pill this morning too. Smitty was jealous, but he got to lick the spoon cuz he already ate his breakfast. Momma is kind of concerned about the steroid with my heart, as to whether I really should have it or not, and she is asking the dr again today. The shots must be helping a bit, cause I went a little bit more this morning. Mom cannot figure out why I got this bladder infection cause I drink lots of water, and get extra water in my wet food. I eat only a little dry in the early morning, which The Dad usually feeds us breakfast cuz he is up early with the birdies. So Mom doesn't know if eating the duck flavor Blue Buffalo changed something which caused me to get this. (They were out of chicken at Petco) She is not going to give us any more, and we are already back on the chicken. And we eat only wet at night. So I have been resting alot today, dozing by the kitchen window watching the birdies. Hopefully things will get back to normal - our Nana fell 2 days in a row, and Mom has been trying to make her rest too. Sometimes a nice quiet day is not so bad! Thanks to my pals for the purrs! A big thank you to Ashlynne & to Bella for the egg & paw gifties.

 

PAWSOME!!!

We just got back from the vet, and my ultrasound shows STABLE - mild to moderate - same as last year! My heart murmur is barely detectable! The cardiologist said to mom "whatever you are doing, just keep doing it!" I even got a new toy called a cat dancer since I was a very good boy. Thank you so much my friends for your thoughts, they helped alot! So now I am off to demand my breakfast, since I could not eat before my test. I wish that all kitties could get good news when they have a test....so now tomorrow is our Nana's test, we hope those are good too.
signed, a very happy Tigger & him Momma :)

So I was out on the leash Monday afternoon. It was nice & sunny. Mom says "oh look Tigger, 1 yard over, there is the little cat I have been seeing" ok - the cat sees me - I ignore the cat. I strolled over in front of the garage to peer up at the bird feeders, (in the chance that a bird might be up there & fall off or something) and who peeks around the edge of the garage? yes, folks, the cat. Then within the spans of a minute I am crouched low on the grass, slinking, and I took off after that cat. At least as far as the leash & Mom's feet could move. I agree, I am the one who found & adopted Smitty. He was teeny & little & cute, and well would not leave me alone when I went outside. But I have to draw the paw Mom. We cannot even attempt to be friends with this cat. Yes you may feed it by the alley, but I have my paws full enough keeping Smitty in line! And please anyone reading this please keep your paws crossed for my heart ultrasound tomorrow...will let ya know.

We are still reeling from the news of Hazel Lucy leaving us. It seems like there has been so much sadness lately. It is hard to say goodbye to a friend. Some of them we did not know very well, and others we did. Does not make it any easier to know someone is in pain. Please keep crossed paws for me as I go for my annual ultrasound on the 24th to check my heart. We need good news. Our Nana has to have some tests done the next day, so we need good news there too. On a good note, I got to go out on my leash twice yesterday! Got to do some digging, and even stalked a bird! Of course Mom would never let me catch or hurt it, but it was fun to pretend being a wild jungle kitty. Hope that everyone has some peace this weekend, and we send our purrs to anyone hurting no matter what the reason.
peace,
The Tigster
