I Give My Cats Aspirin

Hi everyone! Poor Penny is being bumped today. I want to pass some important information along to all of you.

I have always read that aspirin is a no-no for cats so I was shocked when Emmy’s cardiologist prescribed one half of a baby aspirin twice a week. She is also on two heart medicines.

Sammy has a murmur so he went to the same cardiologist for an echocardiogram and was also prescribed the same aspirin regimen. Then I went to the regular vet with Polar Bear. I recently changed all the cats over to this new place because I was unhappy with the care at VCA. Well, this new vet ( new to us, she has been in business over 20 years) recommended the aspirin for him too. Polar Bear has a thyroid problem like Sammy and also has a murmur ( all my hyperthyroid cats have murmurs). This vet gives all her hyperthyroid cats a whole baby aspirin twice a week. I am staying cautious and only doing the half twice a week.

The reason this was prescribed was because hyperthyroid cats with murmurs are more prone to blood clots. I had never heard this before. Has anyone else been told this? I am curious to know. Plus, if you haven’t been told this, I hope you will ask about it if your cat has these conditions. I also plan to ask if all my older cats should be given this like how aspirin is prescribed for older humans.

This is one of the gifts I gave my mom for her birthday. It is a travel mug from Summer’s Zazzle store. My mom is a big fan of Summer.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone! We are joining Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop 

Joanie and Emmy are thankful for the heated throw.

We are also joining   Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt..

Indians were here long before us
pushed aside with a big fuss.
After hundreds of years they found a way to get revenge,
Getting our money from casinos, their lost land they can finally avenge.
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and my co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two.
1. __________________ is tasty.

3. If everything goes according to plan, _________.
4. _________ is the spookiest thing I have ever experienced.

Happy 14th Birthday Joanie and Sammy

Hi everyone! Today Joanie and Sammy turn 14!

Thank you to Pipo’s Petcretary for this great card:

And  to Teddy for this adorable card:

We are also joining the  Pet Photo Fails Blog Hop hosted by Melissa’s Mochas, Mysteries and Meows in memory of Roby Sweet.

This was a photo fail of Emmy when I tried to have her pose with the pirate day giveaway prizes. We are also joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays blog hop.

Thankful Thursday

Hi everyone. I am still mostly taking a break, but I wanted to join Brian’s Thankful Thursday Blog Hop and Meow Like a Pirate Day! Noel is still  hanging in there ( knock on wood, 3 times). Prancie gave us quite a scare last Friday and she is still not back to her old self. She has an ultrasound Friday. Her kidneys have gotten worse since February, but not enough to have gotten her so dehydrated. We are very worried.She is such a good patient and takes the fluids well. I am thankful she is still with us too.

Joanie and Gremmie are really into Pirate Day.

Noel wanted to join in too.

  Emmy was not thrilled to pose ( as you can see by my arm). We are having a giveaway for Pirate Day. The prize is a copy of Emmy’s book and a Pirate print catnip mat. Sorry I can only afford to ship in the US. To enter just comment on this post before Sunday at 9 PM 9 EST). Winner will be announced Monday ( unless one of my kitties gets sicker).

We are also joining   Sammy’s Poetry Day. Here is my poem to go with this photo prompt.

My ship has sunk
I need to get drunk
I want to sail with the captain with the rum
Captain Morgan will make me less glum
Here are the Friendly Fill-Ins for tomorrow. I came up with the first two and our co-host, Lorianne of Four-Legged Furballs came up with second two. I hope to post tomorrow, depending on the kitties.

Awww….Monday

Hi everyone! I am only joining one hop today,  Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays.

I have had a lot of helpers with my snowflakes. I am on #93. So close to 100, but the ones at the end are the toughest and take longer. Prancie is helping today. Trouble is banned from helping because she chews through my thread.

I am reading more Happiness books, but Emmy is not happy about it.

It’s Monday! What Are YOU Reading?

Hi everyone! We are joining Comedy Plus’ Awww….Mondays and Book Date’s It’s Monday What are YOU Reading?

I am currently reading The Castle on Sunset: Life, Death, Love, Art, and Scandal at Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont by Shawn Levy. I  had never heard of the Chateau Marmont, apparently that is where John Belushi overdosed. It is also where many celebrities have stayed since it opened in 1929. I am enjoying reading about all that have stayed there.It is like reading US Weekly from 1929-present day. No mention of Nicolas Cage though. 🙁

I am not a big fan of fiction, but I am enjoying The Secret Life of Mac by Melinda Metz. It is the author’s second book about a cat named Mac that has a knack for bringing people together.

One more thing- Noel is scheduled for an ultrasound on Friday. The vet said they would be able to tell if the tumor is contained. If it is, I will most likely opt to have it removed. If it has spread, the vet said not to do anything and I agree. Please keep Noel in your prayers.

Wordless Wednesday

Hi everyone! Thank you all for the birthday wishes yesterday.

Noel’s needle aspirate results came back and they are inconclusive. So I still don’t know if she has cancer or not. I was gone to an appointment when the vet called so my hubby talked to her. I need to call tomorrow to find out if an x-ray would at least show what organ the tumor is coming from and go from there.

My little lush, Emmy, had her cardiologist appointment Monday. Her heart is a little worst than 9 months ago so the cardiologist added another medicine plus 1/2 of a baby aspirin twice a week. I questioned that because I have always read aspirin is bad for cats. He said daily it would be, but that amount is OK twice a week. Emmy is self medicating in the photo. 🙂
