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!
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.
