bumpy lumpy

The vet was very impressed with mom to have found the lumpy. She said that it is a reaction to my shot. My tissues got inflamed, and if it is gonna do that, it usually happens within 3 weeks of the shot. The rabies vaccine she uses is not known to cause sarcomas, but she said that if it is still there in a month, she will take it out - being safe is better than sorry. She has already decided that I will not get any more vaccines. none. ever.

The other issue I have been battling a bit, is that when she checks my spine, I have an area that is very tender. So much so that I do cry & wince a bit. She mentioned to mom before that I prob have arthritis. Some days I do not get the Cosequin 2x, so mom is making sure to be strict with that first - otherwise the vet said she could try this shot - not a steroid, but starts with an a...Adequin I think? I would get 1 shot every 5 days until I have 5, then once a month. I am not showing any signs of slowing down or that I even have any issues, unless you press those areas, so mom thinks maybe we will see how I am doing in a month or so.
Has anyone had experience with these Adequin shots for arthritis though?

ps we had an excellent Christmas. Both human children came "home" and it was nice to see them. I made sure to get fur on them both to take back. Momma was very happy. We got of course our cat tree, and a Yeoww fish toy. Felix got a little chirping bird toy, and Nana got us a bag of treats.

I had not checked for a little while, so I am not sure when this happened but when I went to go see Bumpurr's page to send a hello- they are not there anymore. Any pics in the forums do not link to his page or Cowboy, Cruiser or Smokey.
Bumpurr helped me learn so much about my HCM, and kept mom from worrying too much. So marks another loss. I know there were some misunderstandings with a few kits, but it is sad to see someone else is gone.

Can you all spare 1/2 a purr for me? Mom was petting me & found a small lump on my right rear leg- the meaty part. I had my rabies shot on 11/30 on that leg - the only shot I got. It is smaller than a kidney bean, and softish, so mom hopes it is nothing and is trying very hard not to freak out unnecessarily. I have an appt for Wed to make sure.

We want to send everyone our wishes for happiness, health (& a little wealth too huh?) This past year has had it's sadness. We have lost some dear friends here, and Momma has had 4 human relatives and friends pass this year.
But with sadness comes joy - we found Felix & saved him. And were able to get 2 kittens on the road to forever homes- they are patiently waiting at PAWS Chicago, and 1 more found a home. The lady called momma & thanked her for helping Kolby find his way to her. She sent some pictures & it is clear she loves him a bunch. We probably won't be here too much or might pop in right quick, so please everyone, be safe and have a joyous holiday, no matter what you may celebrate. Here is to looking for 2013 to be a wonderful year for us all.
Merry Christmas from the Kitty Quartet & momma too!

sadness

It has been such a sad few days. Mom has just felt so horrible about all those children & adults that tried to protect them losing their lives. Her little niece is 6, and a friends granddaughter is also 6 - so to imagine them gone like that... So much sadness, so much violence. Could that person have been helped at some point, and this horrific tragedy been avoided? We will never know.
What we do know is that we wish everyone peace. Family & friends are the best gifts. Stuff is just stuff. So we say - go & hug someone today. Tell them why they are special to you, that you love them.

Mom took a completely embarrassing photo of me, and I relented and am allowing her to post it. shudder....

you are all special to us, and we send ((hugs))

 

Litter Genie part deux

got a super bargain thanks to Brownie! Petco has the Genie on alse for $15.99. Per Brownie got a coupon for -$10 off. Then I had 2 -$5 petco dollars, so I got another one free!
Petco refills are $9.99 each, Target has them for $7.99 or a 2 pack for $14. You can get coupons on them too. Took another bag out last night - help up great. So if I can get close to a month with a refill, not so bad. We shall see.
Thanks my friends!

Vet says I am good. She cannot even hear any heart murmur or anything sounding funny! She says the atenolol is working very well for me. I am a nice slim 12 pounds. She noticed that I am still showing a tender spot on my spine, (I did 6 months ago too) that she says is prob arthritis, but I am on Cosequin, and I certainly bounce around with no problems, so she said unless I seem to be having issues, I don't need any other medicine. I am not showing any crystals in my urine, but the PH is creeping up again- it is at 7.2 already, which proves that just eating grain free wet food is not enough in my case. Some kitties just have the problem with PH - soooo I gotta go back to the rx food. Momma asked her about meds for it, and vet does not like to use anything because it can cause more issues with other organs & kidney issues. Mom is not thrilled with that food, but for now I will have to eat some of that food, cause momma does not want to see me go through all that pain again (not to mention the $1000+ bill that came with it). I got my rabies shot, and mom put the distemper shot on hold, as she want to wait 3 years in between them. So it is all good!

PS still loving the Litter Genie!

well the theory of a ddp & mentioning poopie is still going strong! Thanks for all the wishes my friends. Thanks to Brownie for the heads up on a $10 off coupon for the Litter Genie & it is on sale & possibly another coupon for $5 off. Gonna get another one this weekend
I gotta go to the vet tomorrow for my 6 month check up & distemper shot. I only get 1 shot at a time because of my heart condition. All I can say is there better be something good to munch when I get home! take care all!

Well I cannot thank Lori enough - this thing is pretty great! I posted in the forum too. I have been cramming 4 kitties worth of poopies in there, and have only had to change the bag 1 time. No stinkies! (wish I could say the same for the litter I got this time - no comment on that! Removing the bag was easy too, just flip the lid open & cut. So far so good! loving the Genie!!!

Mom & The Dad are cleaning up in the basement - so that must mean it's geeting to be Turkapalooza time! Since we had that flood from the stupid neighbors & the floor was damaged, The Dad got the tiles up in 1 section so no one would trip on them. It looks awful though. Not everyone will be coming this year, so Mom says there will not be 5 turkeys. Only the big one, a small fried one & The Dad always likes to smoke a small one - he says he will cut it into pieces this year to make it easier. Mom is very excited cuz our human sister will be in from Seattle for 4 whole days! Then Mom will be busy with all the end of the year business stuff along with the holidays.I am gonna have to show Felix the ropes around the CHristmas tree - I am always the first one in it...Mom I wouldn't even bother putting ornaments on this year...you have been warned.....
