Playing Catchup


Well I think I have finally caught up from going to BlogPaws.  I had nearly 200 blog posts to read at one point, it was a little disheartening.  I considered not reading them and just letting it go, but I couldn't do it.  I'm also nearly caught up at work, and I'm hoping to be by the time the week is out.

Fleurp - still doing well in terms of her anemia.  Her gums are still pink and she is holding her weight.  Oddly enough she has started losing fur on her ears.  It doesn't seem to be bothering her at all in that it is not red nor does it seem itchy.  I contacted her holistic vet and she suggested I stop giving the holistic remedy and see what happens, so that is what we will do.



Jack - is doing well.  He didn't need all of the pain meds I got for him.  He's not a fan of being pilled any more, and I can't say I blame him.  He is currently on my chest, head on my hand as I am typing, purring away.  the 24 hour culture came back with no growth - which scares the living daylights out of me.  if it isn't crystals and it isn't an infection, why on earth was he peeing blood??  Since starting him back on antibiotics he hasn't had any inappropriate urination, so I am hoping against hope that the 48 hour culture shows something.. (Am I gonna get more cookies out of this??? ~Jack)


The Crew in general.. yup, other then my two problem children everything seems to be going well.  The warmth of spring / summer is here and the sun room is open for them to sit in and smell the outdoors and they are loving that.

"Elvis"... doing well.  Someone vomited yesterday and I am assuming it is him.  He was also a bit more sedate then I would have liked, but so was Odilia when she was five days past deworming too.. so I'm not worrying.    He also has a new name.. Trevor Von Stinkypants.  Rene suggested Trevor and it seemed to fit. I tried Elvis (I liked it cause he is a lover) and Trevor and Odin.. Trevor won.  DH said I should name him Mr. Stinkypants because he is still having issues and is a little smelly.. and after some discussion he turned into Von Stinkypants. :)   He doesn't seem to mind.  All Trevor wanted to do last night was sit on someone and or complain about the lack of 'good' food.. despite there being Wellness chicken and beef in the plate.

Trevor Von Stinkypants aka TVS
Odilia.. O.. M.. Goodness.. that girl has entered the wild and crazies.  she just did not stop the entire time we were visiting.  If I wanted to pat her, she was chewing on me.  If I wanted to hold her she was chewing on me.  If I wanted to lay on the ground and get photos of TVS she was on my back attacking my hair.  Not even whipping my pony tail at her made her back off.  At one point she ran onto my back, up my shoulder then threw herself into the air and landed on the ground only to turn around and do that two more times right in a row.    I could not stop laughing.


Lastly, I still have a slew of necklaces that I made for BlogPaws.  Mostly because I was just too chicken to hand them out.. If you would like one, all you need to do is send me your mailing address (see the sidebar on the right for my email address) and I'll get one out to you.

  1. My human totally forgot you had those necklaces - and she read about them before BlogPaws! Otherwise she would have asked for one, since she is not shy about such things!

    I hope Jack is okay - purrs going in his direction!

  2. Trevor looks like he's wearing his grumpy pants. Is it because he's being called stinky or because Odi is creating a ruckus in the background?

    1. I'm pretty sure that is his "That kitten is INSANE" look :)

  4. One of Mom's kitties had this problem with the blood in the urine and it turned out it was a side affect of the meds she was on. It wasn't really blood, but turned her urine the color of blood.

    1. That must have been disconcerting, but good to find out in the end. Unfortunately I have proof it is blood.. :(

  5. Two of mine have had blood in their urine at various times, and there was no bacteria involved - I'm sure you've heard of "sterile cystitis" - apparently caused by stress and/or too much dry food. My two that have had the issue get mostly wet food, diluted with water to about the texture of oatmeal, and once a day a capsule of Cosequin for Cats mixed into the meal. They tend to do ok with this regimen, and only occasional pop a little blood if my daughter and I yell at each other too much... Just thought I'd mention it in case it helps you.

    1. Jack has had issues with crystals in the past, so when the vet said there were no crystals this time I was a little surprised.

      I've done the cosequin before.. but I do appreciate you mentioning it. Better to be told something twice than not at all..

  6. I'm glad you're catching up with things again--odd about the fur on Fleurp's ears. Also glad Jack is feeling better, but scary that his culture didn't show anything (how can that be)?

    I love those necklaces!

    1. I am more then a little scared at the implications of no bacteria.. because I fear that means something is going on with his liver or kidneys.. if nothing shows up I think I'm just going to end up in a puddle on the floor sobbing..

      (I'm happy to send you one or four)

  7. Glad everyone is mostly doing well.

    We bet Trevor starts giving Odilia a run for her money pretty soon :)

  8. Don't worry to much Connie I know its hard not to but it may have just been a mild infection that cleared up quick as I said before I used to get them all the time but since taking cranberry extract I it has become a rare thing you can get it in tablets or casule ,the capsule could be opened up and mixed in with food if you decided to try Jack on it.cranberry extract is well known to help with urinary tract infections,we will keep sending possitive thought to you and Jack and Fleurp,xx Rachel and Speedy
    P.s everybody should get one of your necklaces as I love mine thank you for sending it,xx Rachel

  14. We think Trevor is a great name. Sounds as if Odilia is really full of herself these days. It was so much fun seeing her in so many posts on other blogs after BlogPaws. She certainly was the hit of the conference. Purrs and hugs from the kitties at The Cat on My Head, Lily Olivia, Misty May, Mauricio, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Josette.
