Mancat Monday

Today we are featuring our good furriend Grey, who is still in intensive care.

Grey is a real ManCat! He used to be the shop cat at a mechanic's shop where they store a Real Race Car!!! He lived there for 13 years until he developed hyperthyroidism and needed twice daily meds, so then he came to live with the shop owner and his wife.

Then on Wednesday last week he threw a blood clot and fell over and couldn't get back up. His V-E-T sent him to North Texas Veterinary Referral Center and he has been there ever since. They discovered that he has cardiomyopathy and also a compressed spine. The x-ray showed down toward his tail that a disc is now missing & another almost missing & the vertebrae have been rubbing on each other which is causing some neurological problems in controlling his rectum & bladder muscle.

He is eating and drinking well, and pooping with enema help. The V-E-T removed his catheter yesterday and also said there was some feeling returning to his hind legs. Today he is probably going to see a neurologist.

So we still need lots of purrs, prayers, pawsitive thoughts and good vibratons sent this way. Ok?

We're purring really hard for Grey to keep getting better so that he can get out of the hospital and go back to his home. He was a responsible working cat managing a shop and deserves to continue his retirement in style. Hang in there big cat!
