Bow's 18th Purrfday!

Today is Bow's 18th Purrfday. Researching cat years to human years on the internet turned up anywhere from 79-years-old to 92-years-old. At any rate, he isn't a youngster.

We are having a PAR-TAY out in the enclosure if you can stop by! It is supposed to be in the 80s today once the clouds burn off!!! There will be fresh nip grown in our own garden, tuna joose, niptinis, and EASTER HAM!!!!

Since he had some blood in his urine during his check-up, he's been on an aunty-by-otik, but he is still feeling uncomfortable and is going to the litter box but not always leaving anything. So, we're going to be getting some more aunty-by-otiks. He doesn't mind getting his sub-q fluids as long as he gets his treats afterwards. We're giving him fluids every 3rd day. Might increase that to every other day. The fluids have potassium and B-vitamins in it to help with his kidney failure.

Happy Birthday Bow! We brought you some Temptations because we thought that you might not mind taking your aunty-by-otiks if you had some good treats!!

Happy Happy your 18 birthday, Bow~!!!

Happy birthday Bow - we didn't realize you were 18. We thought you were a youngster. You certainly don't look like you are in your 80's. We hope the antibiotics help you. We agree - getting old sux. Tiki especially knows - he has to get stuck at least 4 times a day - twice for blood sugar tests and twice with insulin.

I'm so sorry I'm late to the party. I hope it was a happy day for everyone. To make up for being late, I'll help clean up. Okay, there's one cat here that has passed out and it has a paw full of nip. Who is this? Somebody call a taxi and let's get this fellow home.

Sunny's Mommy said...

Belated Happy 18th Birthday, Bow! You're looking great!

I hope the new antibiotics make you feel all better.
