Wednesday, woe…

Teddy had to go to the vet. He has lost 4 pounds and had diarrhea for a couple of days. So, off to the Vet, we went. Usually, he is not happy to be there but he puts up with it. But this time he hissed and growled and showed his claws.

The Vet did her thing which took about an hour with the checking and testing. $600 later I was told he has an inflamed bowel and given some medicine in a syringe to give him every 12 hours. In the past, he has been fine when he had to take medicine but I guess his old age has made him a bit of a crank. It is a challenge to get the medicine in him rather than on him.

He does seem to be feeling better and the diarrhea is gone. But we have a few more days of doses to go. Wish me luck!

Sometimes being a cat mama is difficult!

Friday, feline…

I am tired and need to rest
But there is an intruder here
And she is a pest
She is not going anywhere
She is not a guest
This no April fool
That’s no jest
I must be cool
And do my best
To follow the new rule
In my comfy nest
I’m no fool
I know I am blessed
So I will stop this mewl
And for now be shushed

A note from Teddy…

teddysmile

Hi everyone!

I am all smiles because I am all better! I went to see the lady vet and she did a sonogram and some tests and all is well.  No crystals in my bladder and no blood or infection in my pee. I am going to stay on the special diet but I can have my favorite wet food, too. Jack is happy because he likes the special food, too, and we will share.

Jack went with us to the clinic because it was time for his checkup and rabies shot. He doesn’t mind going to the vet like I do. He gets right out of the crate and into the vet’s arms. Weird! He got his shot and loved on the lady. Double weird! Anyway, he is healthy but gained 1 and 1/4 pounds. Mama says we are all going on diets because we are getting fat.  Her, too.

It was a tiring day for me and Jack so we are planning on a long nap. But before I go to sleep I want to thank all of you peoples for your good thoughts and prayers and advice. It means a lot to me and Mama.

Teddy’s trial…

what

Well, it has been a not so good new year for me!

I had a problem. I tried to hide it from Mama but she has radar or something and figured out that I was having a problem.  I was licking my boy part…a lot…then I started chewing it. Mama caught me and started watching me really closely.  She even followed me into the closet when I went use the litter box.  I mean really a guy needs his privacy!

Anyway, that’s when she found out I couldn’t pee more than a drop. So I had to go to the cat clinic place that very day…right away as in emergency!  My regular man vet wasn’t there so I saw a lady vet.  I liked that better…I don’t care much for people in general and men specifically so the lady was kinda nice, I guess.

She took me into another room and took pictures of my bladder and did a urine test. I had crystals in there and an infection! The vet gave me a shot and gave pills and some bad tasting liquid stuff to Mama to give me at home. There is also special food that Jack and I like a lot! We hope we get to keep eating it but Mama says it costs more than her groceries so maybe not. We’ll see what the lady vet says.

It was awful but I am peeing now so that’s good but Mama says there is another trip to see the lady vet coming next week to make sure I am not making any more crystals in my bladder. Mama told me she had a cat, Henry, who had the same thing and he had his boy part cut off! I’m pretty sure that would be awful so I hope all the yucky medicine worked.
