Hi, it's me, Athena! Kit is too tired to blog about his day -- he's been through a lot!
This is an old picture. Iffen my mama could haf gotten a new picture, you would see that his belly and his sides are shaved for the ultrasound! He looks funny! But that isn't the news.
We gotted good news from the v-e-t! No cancer or IBD! So it looks like it is the hyperthyroid that made him lose the weight, efun though his levels were only slightly elevated. This is treatable wif medication! Mama is so happy. I'm happy too, he is a good big brofur. I am growling and hissing at him right now, but that's just because he smells like the v-e-t. I can't help it!
One thing the nice lady v-e-t did find on the ultrasound is that one of his kidneys is smaller than normal, and the ofur one is bigger than normal. They will haf to watch his kidney function, especially since the thyroid medication can mask dysfunction. His medicine is in the form of a treat! Hopefully he will take it like a good boy.
He is one tired kitty right now. They had to sedate him for the ultrasound because he is a feisty cat! Hopefully he will get some good rest this afternoon and will feel like eating his dinner. He didn't get any breakfast! Mama is trying out different foods on us right now. She is switching us to a premium, grain free diet to try to stimulate Kit's appetite. She wented to the store to return alla the old food and to get us new food. She got lotsa different kinds so she can see what we like best.
We want to thank efurryone for their purrs and purrayers! Mama was so worried and you all helped a lot. We know it is still a serious condition but it isn't as bad as we feared -- we were so scared it was cancer. at least this is treatable!
