Oh Noes....Not Again

Kitties, I have to go to the v-e-t again.  Trying for my blood panel that I didn't get in April when I went for my senior workup.  Again, how I could have been THAT bad when they injected me with Gabapentin, I will never figure out.  However, that's what happened and mom was concerned about me these past three days so she was forced to make an appointment regardless of the virus restrictions.  They said they would allow mom to be with me.  In an afternoon appointment.  Mom will do her best to get my meds down me with sardine juice from sardines (packed in olive oil).

There was a sigh from the receptionist when mom asked, not knowing of course, if they were allowing pet parents in yet.  "Sigh".  "Yes, in some instances".  So..a late appt. They do all the parking lot waiters in the morning hours. Glad they are allowing some cases inside afternoons.

I have been quietly meowing often, eye to eye  right to mom's face as though I am trying to communicate.  I have been horking a lot  and often. And eating like food was going out of style.  Unusual.  And I look unkempt.  And I'm not patrolling nor am I lolling in sunpuddles.  My litterbox looks good in that all functions are normal.  Not too much..not too little.  Right on target. So far I haven't horked today.  Mom said she heard me thundering in the hallway last night.  That pleased her.  Maybe I am on the upswing BUT I need my bloods done and a few minor things. Wish Mom luck in getting my gabapentin down for my appt. Wednesday at 1pm.

pee ess:  Those furriends who Are OTRB and who were in my sidebar- are still here  In my Rainbow page.  I won't ever not put my friends in that page where I and the rest of us can look for them. XXX

We hope you are fine Katie. Dad worries about me and it is time for my yearly check up. He wants to be there with me as I do get upset. I like to graze so it is hard to see how much I eat as the food is out for a few hours till it is all gone. Then dinner the same. I love my treats but parents worry. We are going to see about getting Gabapentin for Einstein and Rumpy. They go NUTS and Einie bites.
Purrs sweetie feel good ok

I sure hope everything goes smoothly and it's all over before you know it sweet Katie.

Katie Isabella you crack me up when you turned from a tremendous Tuxie lady into Warrior Princess in the blink of an eye. I say do what you have to do to make sure the Vet place never ever NO never takes your visits for granted.
YOU GO GIRL
Hugs Cecilia

Hoping everything goes well at the vet, Katie Isabella, and that you continue to feel better!

I am glad your mom can go in with you. I am not a vet, but it sounds like you are hyperthyroid. It is an easy fix so no worries. XO

Katie, the reason for eating is to keep it inside the body!

We hope the V-E-T can fix things. Horking makes ya a bit tired (OUR only concern).

The Whiskeratti said...

I'm so glad your mom can be with you. That's very important. I never left mine alone unless absolutely necessary, but these are different times. I hope they can find what is making you feel not so great. Hugs to you both.

Final Friday; final Saturday on the MS - that I know for sure, at least no more complex chapters... other lighter things still.

I'm glad the vet can accommodate your human when you have to go back there, Katie. I'm actually due for my checkup and evaluation for therapy work in August. My human is hoping she will be allowed to be there by then. We both know I would be fine by myself, but she really should be there for the evaluation since she is my partner.

Pam and Teddy said...

Well I'm glad they will let your Mom go in with you this time - could be just the right calming touch for you dear Katie and you can at last get your bloods done. It's impawtant!

Hugs, Teddy

Cupcake said...

Hoo-boy, KI. This is going to be another adventure, I'm sure. Here's hoping sardine juice and medicine does the trick. Try to relax and think happy thoughts' Good luck, friend.

Love and licks,
Cupcake

Praying there is nothing wrong and the blood panels are all clear. Glad you were able to thunder down the hall. Maybe you just had a little virus and it has passed...and glad mom can go into the V-E-T with you! xo Diana

Oh Katie - we hope everything goes better this time at the vet. We are so glad your Mom can be with you - this should make both of you feel better - even though it is still the V-E-T.

Cathy Keisha said...

Healing purrz, Katie. I hope you don't have a hairball struck in your tummy. Dr. D. didn't get my bloods last time either only she doesn't make me go back. She knows stressing me will make me sick. TW is concerned cos I've been retching every couple of weeks and nothing comes up but she and Dr. D. decided against me coming in since the peeps can't be with me. TW is ordering some hairball glop.

We hope your VET appointment goes well and are happy to hear your Mom can be there with you.

Purring for you sweet Katie. Keep us posted okay.

Hi to your worried mom.

Don't forget to have your T4s looked at, Katie. Extreme hunger and an unkempt appearance can be signs of hyperthyroidism. But don't worry: medicine can be compounded and rubbed in the ear. My Tungsten had that. But it's best if nothing is wrong, so let's aim for that, Katie.

Dearest Katie,

We are purring that all goes well when you go to the v-e-t. We are glad that your mom will be able to go in with you. Serendipity went to the v-e-t yesterday and mom had to wait in the car.

Daisy gets extremely stressed out at the v-e-t. She went into respiratory distress last year and had to go in the oxygen tent. One of our tabby brothers, Johnny or Cash, used to start open mouth breathing/panting when at the v-e-t.

Be good and be safe! We love you very much!

Angel Clarissa & Co.
