Today's Vet Visit

Well, since my last vet visit I perked up and ate and got my appetite back pretty much within 24-36 hours of Ben Vet giving me the medicines - but I remained slightly subdued, not myself. Even though I was eating there was nothing coming out the other end, and yesterday morning I was a bit sluggish and Meowmie thought I looked a little uncomfortable, so she gave me an enema - it did the trick and lots came out! I perked up a little...

This morning I was quiet again and showed little interest in food, just a passing lick - which considering it was a bowl full of Applaws chicken was definitely not a good response from me. Luckily we had a vet visit scheduled and we saw Ben Vet today. I have put on a little weight and am back up to 3.76grams - which is good considering that there wasn't so much poo in me today cos of the enema yesterday! Castle came to the vet with me today for a weight check - he is 6.4kgs (14lbs)!!! Ben Vet was not happy and Castle is now having his intake of food strictly monitored.

Now the worrying bit...cos there was less poo in me Ben Vet was able to have a REALLY good feel around my tummy, and he found something that is a little worrying, my intestine feels a bit thickened in one place. Ben said this could either be poo, or unfortunately, the lymphoma making a return visit. Ben Vet said that cos I am off-colour and not myself, that he has to scan me to find out what this 'thickening' may be - so I get a scan tomorrow morning.

It's been a tough day today in our house - but here I am still managing to look majestic and regal despite my problems. Please wish me luck for tomorrow!

PS Meowmie apologises for not being able to help me get around and thank everyone and visit, she hopes you understand xxx

I think the off colour stuff is not a good sign and I certainly hope it is not the Lymphoma making a return. Good luck with your scan and thanks for stopping by my bloggy and for participating in the carnival of cats!

Stormiekins, never ever worry about visiting around... you just take care of you. Goodness, your mommie must be very worried and she does not feel like going around helping you comment on jolly blogs about this and that.
I am a worrier, so I am worried too!!
I will the thinking upon you and your mommie tomorrow all day.
You can just keep us updated.
Your picture is lovely, yes you do look regal. I can nose kiss you <3
Castle is a fatty and he needs to really do some exercise and maybe some stretches... also perhaps less food oooh that sound terrible, lots of suffering. I hate starving.
Mom says i am getting chubby too, she claims I have eaten Pierro's foods. I do not want his food, he is a kitten. I love my boring tasteless kidney diet foods, really I do.
You are loved by me.
Purrrs always and always
Princess
