Phoebe Friday

Hi everyone! Sorry I am a day late. Before I get started, Mom wants to thank you all for the words of encouragement and tips you shared to help Spooky. We appreciate all your comments, purrs and prayers. So far Spooky is responding to fluids and eating- not as well as he used to, but he is eating. We pray that he will improve more daily. He will get retested in 2 weeks. His numbers were very bad: Amylase was 2195 ( normal range is 100-1200), Creatinine was 7 (0.6-2.4 is normal) and Phosphorous was 12.3 ( normal is 2.4-8.2).

Spooky got to go outside yesterday. He was very happy and headed straight to the catnip. He was a neighborhood cat, always outside until we brought him in 2 and a half years ago.

I saw my Grammie on Wednesday and she didn’t give us treats- phooey! I still love her very much though.

My Purrince wrote me another poem, I am a lucky purrincess:

Mee will laff WITH you!
No matter what you do…..
An guess what mee got?
No not a spot or a dot…..
but mee Kat inn thee HAT hat
an mee bookmark so flat!
Yur card iss so nice
Yur mee sugar an spice….
***paw kissesss*** an all mee <3 LUV <3

I love my sweet purrince.

Today is The Lazy Pit Bull’s Pet Blooger Blooper Round-up

The Pet Blogger Bloopers Round-Up – January

and her is our blooper:DSCF0588   Nice foot shot, but we were going for the whole package.

See you Sunday when I will be starting my Easter Giveaway.


  1. I hope Spooky will improve and feel better soon! That is a lovely poem and a very sweet one. I laughed at your blooper–your paw is beautiful!

    1. Thank you, I wish I could take credit for the name, but our neighbors gave it to him

  2. Glad to hear Spooky is perking up……the fluids are doing him good! Once he feels more “normal” his appetite will get better I just bet! Nice he got to enjoy some fresh air too. The past few days have been real GIFTS for this time of year! I love the foot shot – our feets are never getting the attention they deserve!!!!

    Hugs, Sammy

    1. Spooky went outside again today and he was hard to keep up with. The weather has been nice. XO

  3. We have just caught up with all your news and are so sorry that Spooky is not doing so well. We send purrs and prayers for sure! If he heads for the nip, that will cheer him up and especially being outside, which is what I love to do too.

    Phoebe no pic of you is a blooper! Just saying xoxoxo

  4. Thank you for the update on Spooky, Phoebe. If your mom doesn’t mind me asking, did his vet prescribe him a phosphate binder (aluminum hydroxide is a common one for cats) to help treat the elevated phosphorus? Also, I forgot to mention to your mom, in case she doesn’t already know or use this trick, that baby food was a godsend when I had to give my Rosie all of her kidney meds. Meat-based baby food (chicken, turkey, ham, beef) with no other ingredients (no onion, garlic, etc.) is safe for cats and dogs, and can be a great way to sneak meds to your kitty.

    I love the poem your purrince wrote for you, Phoebe. It sounds like he really likes his Dr. Seuss goodies, just like we love ours!

    And, great blooper! Purrs!

    1. I welcome any and all pointers so I don’t min you asking at all. She did not recommend one and I will ask her about it. I know she said she didn’t want to use all the tricks at once. I do think that should be used right away. And thank you for the baby food tip. I tried one with no luck, but I bought 3 meat ones so we have 2 choices left. He is leaning toward dry food and at this time I just want him to eat so I let him have what he wants. XO

  5. Purring and praying for Spooky. We lost our precious little baby girl Mika this week She was17.

  6. We like that Spooky got a little treat to go outdoors. We purr-ray he will remain stable.

  7. Hey Ellen, 7 for creatinine isn’t good, but I’ve definitely seen worse, too. The fluids should help lower it some. For the high phosphorus, did the vet give you any phosphorus binder like Epakitin? You can find it on Amazon cheaper than the vet sells it usually. The phosphorus binder should help, too.

    You got a very nice poem, Phoebe!

    Purrs and hugs to you all <3

    1. Thank you, you are the 2nd person to mention the phosphorous binder, I will call Monday and ask about that. XO

  8. Spooky looks good outside!! Don’t be jealous he got to go outside, Phoebe. You can still enjoy the warm breezes from the window. Maybe your grammie had other things on her mind that she forgot the treats. I’m sure she’ll have them next time!! And – love the poem and the foot shot!! Very cool!!

    1. Thank you, Grammie was worried about Spooky too. She best give me some next time- double. XO
