G.T. and His Allergy Test

G.T. went in today for his 2nd allergy test. This is where they shave off a portion of his side furs and then stick a bunch of needles into him to see his reaction. This test was done back in 2005, and he was allergic to a bunch of stuff. Well, today he was more allergic to the same stuff, and to additional stuff. But he wasn't allergic to mold this time, and he was allergic to mold in 2005. And now he is allergic to cat dander, so apparently he is allergic to himself. The v-e-t said that G.T. tested like a dog. Maw says, "Huh?" And the v-e-t said that G.T. had high percentages on all of his tests, and that he scored for all trees tested, all weeds tested, and all grasses tested. And he got +5 on all of those! Whoo hoo! So G.T. is like, super allergic to like, a whole bunch of stuff! Oh, and he is allergic to dust mites, and house dust. Geez. Maw might have to clean more often. "Yuckster", Maw says. So G.T. now has new serums to help him be less allergic and so that he won't be chewing his forearms and cheeks raw.

We're sorry we're late to wish a happy birthday to Maw!! We hope you all made it a great day for her!

G.T., you sound like our mom - she was allergic to everything when they tested her! But after a few years of taking the shots, she was a lot better. It's kind of a drag that you're allergic to yourself, though. Purrs to you all!


A wonderful happy purrday Maw!
We are glad G.T. is going to be feeling better!

Athena said...

Poor G.T.! I hope the new serum makes him feel much better. Happy birthday Maw!

Daisy said...

Oh G.T., how can you be allergic to your own dander? Poor fellow!

Happy birthday to your Maw!

Happy birthday to your Mom! :)

Talk about a bad day -- a cat allergic to cat dander had gotta be way up there on that scale.
