uh-oh -- UPDATED

Hi fellow cats -- Kit here.

Not good news.  The PTU is out again, and Mom has been on the phone with the v-e-t.  I heard my name.  The bedroom door is shut so I can't go UTB.  I wish Mom would stop doing her own v-e-t research!  She keeps talking to a v-e-t on the web because she is worried about me.  I keep trying to tell her I'm fine by cuddling up to her and eating my food and eating my medicine treat, but she is still worried.  I wish she would just leave me alone.


In other news, there has been a lot of noise outside our window.  A man came with a noisy machine and trimmed our bush back.  Another man came and sprayed something on the flower bed where our bird feeder is.  And now another man is cutting the grass.  Athena runs and hides, but I like to watch.

I'll let you know what happens at the v-e-t.  They better not try to steal any more of my blood!  I need it all!

UPDATED:

Whew!  That wasn't so bad.  Don't get me wrong, I hate going in the PTU, but this time when Mom opened it up in the exam room I hopped right out to explore.  It turns out that when Mom and the v-e-t were talking on the phone about my blood, they meant my blood pressure, not stealing it!  Something about hypertension secondary to hyperthyroidism.  Anyway, two very nice vet techs came in.  One was a big guy who held me while the girl did her thing.  I growled at her to start with, but as soon as she said the word "muzzle" I stopped doing that.  The guy tech was petting me and my mom was petting me too.  The girl tech shaved a patch on my leg!  Between that and my shaved belly and sides I am feeling quite nekkid.  She put some kind of gel and a sensor on the bare patch and something around my leg.  Then she used a machine to make the thing around my leg squeeze my leg!  It felt weird, but it didn't hurt.  The gel was cold, though.  The v-e-t came in and told my mom that my blood pressure was perfect and that my mom doesn't have to worry.  Mom feels much better!  And I am not mad at mom.  I am not a grudge-holding kitty.

Hopefully this will be the end of my v-e-t trips.  Wait, what Mom?  I have to go back in two weeks to have my thyroid levels rechecked?  Great.  At least everyone at my v-e-t is nice.

oh noes! Moms are real worrywarts. At least it means she loves you, Kit. We have all our paws crossed that you are in tip-top shape.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Yikes! We hope everything will be okay, Kit, with no more vet trips any time soon. Tell your mom to remember that on-line vet probably needs to make a payment on his BMW or Jag or something. Heh heh.

Paws crossed that the vet gets to the bottom of your troubles, Kit!

Willow said...

Kit worrying Moms need a lot of assurance and sometimes this means they double check that you are well. Assuring the Moms are a full time job, but eating the treats is good for the Mom

Daisy said...

Kit, you are smart and brave to stop growling before they had to use the dreaded muzzle on you. I'm glad to hear your blood pressure came out good.

We hope you get all better! We can tell your mom is real worried about you and loves you a lot!
