Updates on Thankful Thursday

Two Spot


It's me, Two Spot hosting today! Mom is still visiting and thanking all of you who left kind comments for her when Ivy left for the Bridge recently.  Ivy left a huge hole in our house and in our hearts.  Your support and words of comfort help so much.

Sweetpea
 Sweetpea went to the vet the same day we lost Ivy.  She is tiny but feisty and had to be sedated to get blood and urine for her tests. She had a UTI and is pre diabetic (maybe).  Since blood glucose goes up under stress, the vet wants to check again after her UTI is resolved to see if she is still running high. Or maybe Mom can do that at home.  Sweetpea is back to her normal self so we think this may be a false alarm.  Let's hope so as she is not a good candidate for insulin shots and blood glucose testing!

Albert

Meanwhile Albert, our deaf mancat, is off his food and very lethargic.  Not much else and since it is very hot out we have not taken him in to be checked yet. He will go to see the vet Thursday (today).  He needs a senior check up being 11 this year.  Hopefully all will be OK!  Paws crossed everyone!

Georgie  still has a shaved belly and paw form her last hospital visit.


Georgie has been a little off her food and her blood sugar is waffling again.  With all she has been thru her liver is damaged.  Mom decided to try a holistic vet in another county and took Georgie on Monday this week.  Well worth the 40 minute drive.  Georgie got acupuncture and came home with probiotics, digestive enzymes and vitamin B - all to help her liver heal which will in turn help all the other digestive issues - appetite, constipation and diabetes.  Georgie did really well and Mom liked the vet very much. We had a vet back at our old house that was holistic but have not found anyone here.

We have a lot to be thankful for - living in an area with access to great vet care - holistic and conventional, a new approach to helping Georgie with her diabetes,  new donations to our Paypal account that enable us to take the cats to the vet and  all the dear friends who purr, pray and help Mom thru our ups and downs in caring for all of us senior and special needs cats.

Paws crossed that the rest of you kitties stay healthy - and purrs to the ones who have issues.

We're crossing our paws that it was indeed a false alarm re: SweetPea. We're sending purrs to her, to Albert and to Georgie too. We're glad there's another holistic vet and hope the treatments and supplements work.

Lots of hugs to all.

You sure have your hands full right now. We're crossing our paws and purring that Albert feels better and the Georgie's holistic vet helps get her balanced again. Holistic vets are hard to find, so we're glad you found one you liked.

I hope Sweetpea is not pre-diabetic, too. I think there may be a diabetic diet if she is, but I don't know much about feline diabetes, so you'd have to ask your vet about all that. I worry about Lita developing diabetes as she keeps gaining weight. I keep trying to cut back a bit on her kibbles, but apparently it isn't enough yet.

Please let us know what happens with Albert. I hope he is okay.

I am glad that Georgie did well with the holistic vet. I hope the new treatment approach helps her a lot

Thanks for the updates. We hope everybuddy is okay. You are very lucky to have a variety of veterinary options. We would love to find a holistic vet, but there aren't any near us.

We hope everyone is okay, and that the other kitties stay healthy. Purrs

Sending many purrs to everyone. Hope all feel better soon. Sounds like Georgie might do well on all that new medicine. Sounds like Al is feeling the heat. You all have a great week end.

Your Mom and dad are awesome, kitties. We are thankful they are so in tune with what is going on with each of you, and that they do such a great job of caring for your needs.

We hope that everything went well for Georgia having acupuncture and it didn't upset her having the needles inserted.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
