Hi fellow cats -- Kit here.
Well, Mom started worrying about me again. I've been going to our water fountain about once an hour. She talked to an online v-e-t who advised taking me in to have my kidneys tested, since hyperthyroid can mask kidney disease. As you may remember, one of my kidneys is smaller than normal and one is larger than normal.
So, I got loaded into the PTU. Mom had to go UTC to get me!
I was brave at the v-e-t. They stole some more of my blood. At this rate I'm not going to have any left! Mom and I waited for the results. I explored the office.
The v-e-t came back to tell Mom that my kidneys are normal! She is not sure why I have been drinking so much water. It could be because I am eating more crunchies than I was. I do NOT have diabetes. She said not to worry about it, they will check everything again in two and a half weeks when I go back to have my thyroid levels rechecked.
We got some really good news -- I have gained almost half a pound! Mom finally found a brand of grain free stinky goodness that both Athena and I like -- Wellness. We also like the Blue Wilderness crunchies.
Here I am eating!
I am eating my medicine treat, too, twice a day. Mom had to put it in my throat twice but other than that I am eating it. Athena is jealous that I get an extra treat.
Mom is so happy that I have gained weight! I weigh 7.3 pounds now.
