Re: cat news
I'm glad that there are some treatment options for you, even though I wince
at the cost, having recently started the series of vaccinations on the
kitten, and booster for Diesel, to the tune of about $170 for the first and
$40 for the second. That's on top of the $86 for tests and such for the
kitten when he was vomiting every hour or so and only weighed 14 ounces.
Scooter (the kitten) is now up to 4 pounds. That's a good thing. When I had
him in 3 weeks ago he only weighed 2.4, still prey-sized for the rat snake
that's in the house someplace.
I don't know if I wrote that E.T. is now part of the family. There are still
some hisses and chases, but no fights. He's behaving very well toward the
kitten, too. Who would have thought that a 20 pound fighting blur of claws
could ever be such a pussycat?

I took a sick half day from work yesterday to take Braveheart & Seamus to
the vet. Seamus had been limping since Friday but I couldn't determine
why. Vet said that since all seemed ok with him, his guess was a bee sting;
he gave him an injection to help speed recovery. Guess what! Seamus'
weight is down to 18.9 from 23.5 last June.
Braveheart (now up to 9.5 from a previous 8.9 pounds) is not doing well
in the walking department, seems to be getting worse. Vet put him back on
Cosequin for arthritis and suggested I sprinkle potassium on his food.
Cleaned more wax from his gnarley ears, kept using a camera to find more,
and gave me stuff to put in daily for a week, and then once weekly, to
dissolve the last bit he couldn't reach. As to BH's occasional avoidance
of the litterbox, he prescribed Litter Magnet, which you mix with the
litter and is supposed to entice them to use it. We'll see. Smelled
suspiciously like ground catnip which BH can't seem to smell.
$123 later we're all home safe and sound.
