Wordy Wednesday

Well, we thought we were going to have to build an Ark yesterday and climb aboard, but today the sun is shining and the water is moving on. Thankfully.

In other noos, we didn't get to post yesterday because Maw watched a sticky little bean all day. And Friday she is gonna watch him and his twin sister. So we won't be able to get on the pooter then either!!! That sux.

G.T. had his checkup and had his toofies cleaned yesterday. He has a few FORLs forming, but nothing to freak out about our new v-e-t says. She said if she started pulling FORLs out of every cat she saw in her practice, then all of the middle-aged cats she sees would be toofless by now.

Bow saw the new v-e-t last week and had his bloods stolen, and also his pee stolen. He had some blood in his pee and his bloods are showing that he is now in chronic renal failure, so he is getting flooids now. The v-e-t mixes up vitamin B and potassium with Ringer's Lactate so that the flooids are a little more of a boost. So Bow got flooids for 3 days in a row and now he is every other day, then we will try to reduce it more. He is also on a aunty-by-otik in addition to increasing his pred for awhile. The good noos is that he isn't howling as much, and his appetite has improved. Let's hope he puts some of the 2.5lbs back on that he has lost since December. And he is definitely NOT diabetic. He had no sugar in his urine, and his blood sugar levels were AOK.

Grey Update: Grey pooped a LOT on Monday. He had been having tiny bits of diarrhea and even with an enema he only had a tiny bit of diarrhea. But then he started going on his own on Monday, and he went, and then he went again, and then he went again, and then he went again, and then he went one more time. Good ol' solid huge chunks that made him growl acuz they were so big. Now he is eating VERY WELL. And he actually stretches his back legs!!!! Whooop!!! Whooop!!! ::::::Kitty dance ::::::

Ok, we gotta take a nap now.

That is wonderful news about Grey!!!
GT, we are glad you still have some choppers left, we think the vet did the right thing for you!!
Dear Bow, You hang in there buddy. It is good that you are starting to eat again and the fluids should help make you feel better too!
Hang in there y'all with those sticky little people! They can be a real pain sometimes. Maybe Maw can stick them out in the enclosure.

I'm glad you two had a good check up. I hope Bow gets over whatever infection he has soon, and that he starts gaining some weight back. I'm sorry you're in chronic renal failure, but I know your Maw will take real good care of you.

That is very good news about Grey! Thanks for keeping us updated on how he is doing.

You know what they say, one good poop deserves another. I'm not sure who this "they" is, but it sounds about right.

Eric and Flynn said...

Yayy Great poops Grey!!
We're glad GT didn't haf to git any more teefs taken out. Bow if you keep taking your fluids, you'll be ok. Our Kitty Yumbum coped well wiv her CRF furr several years.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Well, that last one might be a little more than we wanted to know, but we're glad Grey is cleaned out and dancing up a storm.

We're glad Bow isn't diabetic but sorry he is having such health problems.

We don't know what a FORL is but we're glad GT didn't get any teeth pulled.

Kaz's Cats said...

Sounds like your new vet is looking after your guys okay - teeth cleaning beats teeth pulling every time GT - I (Gypsy) speak from experience. We're sorry about Bow's CRF, but we know that he's gonna get the best of care with Maw and Paw - just remember to eat, Bow, and eat lots. As for Grey, that is awesome news - we've never been so glad to read about poo before. You just keep getting better big guy!
