Phoebe’s Press Conference

Hi everyone! We want to give you all an update on Phoebe’s health. She gave me quite a scare this week by not eating. She was diagnosed with stage 2 kidney disease about 6 months ago and we have been monitoring her. The vet didn’t want to do fluids at home because of her heart murmur. She gets a vitamin B12 shot and an anti-nausea shot every 2 weeks. She eats pretty good for a while after that, but when she doesn’t eat, she doesn’t have much to work with and is currently 5 lbs. 5 ounces, when she was checked 2 weeks ago, she was 5 lbs. 10 ounces- you see where this is heading if she keeps refusing to eat. ( I have tried baby food, people food, etc. )

She now has an anti-nausea pill daily and the mertazapine for appetite which she will get every 3 days. I was disappointed yesterday that she didn’t perk up more after fluids ( she was very dehydrated). We are trying not to run our central air as often because I think it makes her dehydrate even faster than she would without it.

The vet called today with blood work results and her kidney values are not much different than 6 weeks ago. Her white blood count is up so we are waiting on a urine test and should know  Monday if there is an infection. If not, we need to find the cause of that.

We just want to let everyone know what is going on and ask for purrs and prayers. I won’t give up on her until she lets me know she has given up. And she really wants to have another Festivus party in December and dress up for Halloween in a couple’s costume with her purrince.

She is ready to take any questions you may have. We made this press conference photo on photofunia back in 2015.We are joining Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop and are very happy it is back on this week.

And here is my poem for Sammy’s Poetry Day, featuring the letter J.

JERK
My brother Sammy has a quirk
he is a bit of a jerk
One night he sleeps on mom’s head
the next, he poops on the bed
He thinks he is a cool dude
and steals everyone’s food
You may think he is a perfect Cat Scout
but at home he is bad without a doubt.

  Now Brody move! You are on my new favorite spot.

Read Me a Story

Hi everyone! June 13th was Read Me a Story Day hosted by Piglove and Gentlestitches. My hubby reads to Prancie, she only likes one book about a spider. Here is a video of their reading session, she was a little antsy because it was dinner time.

We were very sad to see some losses in the Blogosphere. Daddy Cat from Jacqueline’s Cat House had  gone to The Bridge. I pray that Mommy Cat will be OK as I am sure she is heartbroken along with his family. Daddy-Cat-Forever

And I am sure you all know that wise and handsome Merlin has also left this world at the age of 21. His Mom is starting a Kickstarter campaign for a book that is going to help bring awareness to the often overlooked black cats. I am pledging my support in memory of Merlin and my beloved Spooky.
