Hello Everyone! Mom says I used up another of my 9 lives. I eventually caught the URI that everyone in the house had. She tried so hard for me not to get it. She washed her hands every time she came in my room. She washed my bowls, my fork, the litter box scoop. You name it, everything was sanitized. But, the germs were in the air and I managed to catch myself a cold. (See Mom, I still can catch things, mol!)
I was all stuffy and didn't want to eat. The nice doctor told mom to stop my steroid medicine for a few days, but that helps me eat. (A nasty side effect of steroids is that it weakens your immune system and leaves the door open for infections to set in) So Mom gave me an appetite stimulant and that got me eating again. It didn't hurt that she was also making me "fish soup" (tuna from a can with extra water in it) and "chicken soup" (sorry Tabbies, but I had a cold). By Saturday night I was ready to have some Ham. We all love our ham in this house!
I still sound a little like Darth Vader, so I still get my steam bath in the morning when Mom gets a shower. Mom checked with the doctor, and it is okay to start me back on my meds. I may have used up another of my nine lives, but that's okay. I have a few more in storage and I'll use them as needed.
PS I want to thank all of you for the Eggs and the wonderful Spring and Easter wishes. Mom said her inbox was eggsploding this weekend MOL! We just have the most awesome friends here!
Special thanks to my best friend Spooky for the rabbit (I love to stalk him) and the beautiful daffodils. Your encouragement and energy truly keep me going.

Hello my dear!
We have found that, as per mommy's medicine for Bella, there is a very wonderful appitite booster out there from your vet. We got the info from. Ms. Kaci Sunshine. It's quite good.
Sorry you used up a life, Mrs. Murphy! It sounds like you have a good nurse! Purring your back to normal soon!
She did give me mirtazapine for my appetite while I was off the pred syrup and it worked pretty well. They are actually giving it to me (the prednisolone) in the hopes that it shrinks my tumors, sort of like a chemotherapy agent but an added bonus is that it improves the appetite. It won't make it go away entirely but it should slow its progression. I will have to ask Bella about what she got from the doctor.
My Beautiful, intelligent and much revered friend,
I hope you are feeling well and happy and I am very sorry for my absence. I'm all moved now and will be vexing you with my presence more often now. :)
Take care of my best friend, ok?
