A very happy gotcha day to my beautiful Missy Blue Eyes. Without her, there would not be a Sherwood Bunch. A neighbor was sick and had to get rid of her cat, Missy. She brought her over to ask if I could take her, well knowing I did not like cats. However, one look in Missy's huge clear blue eyes, and I said "YES".
Well, I guess Charlie Taylor is a frootbat, he sure does have the ears for it.
The news at the vet was mixed. His weight, 10 pounds 13 ounces, had not changed. They said that was good, usually they lose weight when they return home.
Xrays shows lots of fluid all around his lungs, pushing them inward. They had hoped the fluids would be going down, but they haven't changed at all. She said his kidney numbers are very high, failure level, but there is nothing to do about it. They treat what would kill them first, which in Charlie's case is heart failure.
Also good is that he is very happy at our home. He has decided I am his mommy. He sleeps right beside me and sings and talks to me all night. He has started to socialize with the other cats. Tomorrow we go buy him a water fountain all his own.
And thanks so much for all the donations, this time paying was easy (thanks to you). The bill was $220.65, which included a lasik refill and the xrays. Our next appointment is in ten days, on June 10th, at 10:30 a.m.
Dr. Smith's email is cathospital AT peoplepc DOT com. Please fell free to email her and her excellent staff about their care of Charlie Taylor. She is the same vet who saved KC when she died during surgery to repair a botched ladygardenectomy. She is also the same vet who cured Miss Jade, by going over her faxed records to find the problem. She is one of the best vets ever -- cats only -- and she will consult with a vet anywhere, just fax her the records.
