Quote from: AmLitHist on May 15, 2023, 10:11:46 AMJust got back from the vet with Little Cat. She's been dropping weight since Christmas but has otherwise been OK--eating, singing, playing, etc. as always. She got blood work done and has thyroid problems. So, out with ALL the treats--she lives for Temptations treats--and cat food, both wet and dry. She can only have the Rx food (dry and wet). We'll take her back in 8 weeks to see if it's working; if not, we might have to add a pill once or twice a day. I'm glad it can be managed, and that she's overall in good health/has her normal good quality of life. We lost Fela before Christmas; I'm not ready to lose another pet right now. She is 17, though, but the vet said she should have a number of good years left, esp. since she's an indoor, pampered cat.I expect to get the stink eye for a day or so, both for taking her out of the house to the vet (only her second time since being spayed as a kit) and for taking away all the yummy food and treats.
Quote from: statsgeek on May 16, 2023, 05:11:26 AMOur LittleGirl (of blessed memory) lived for a lot of years with thyroid disease managed by meds. When she was diagnosed, our vet told us this was the best possible "older cat" problem to have because it was the most manageable. Best of luck to AmLit Hist and LittleCat learning to manage this new chapter. Our excitement last night involved the stealing of socks by one of my (not little any more) Yin/Yang boys. Yin stole a pair of my new wool socks off my dresser and paraded them through the living room to show us his prize (he was SO PROUD). I finally managed to negotiate a trade for a feather toy, but we might need to get Yin a sheep.
Quote from: apl68 on May 22, 2023, 07:25:58 AMSaturday morning I heard meowing outside the staff entrance in back of the library building. A bit later a newly-arrived staff member spoke of seeing a cat out there. Sure enough, we had an orange cat none of us had ever seen before perched in the window of a back office. It meowed at me and did not flee. It was obviously not feral, and seemed well cared-for. A check of local social media found a report of a missing orange cat from a neighboring town about fifteen miles away. We doubted that that could be it. Although I did recently hear of one accidentally hitching a ride on the undercarriage of a family's car from their home to the local McDonald's....A patron ended up coming with food and a cat carrier to take the cat in. So it's in good hands. Don't know whether it will end up back at its original home, assuming it still has one.
