Weird call from the clinic tonight - not Charlies regular vet - left me a voice mail about Charlies medication being ready. ah...What medication? No one said anything about medication. Last time he was in with them was January for the Cystocentesis. So 1. They either royally screwed up and he's suppose to be on meds (though I for the life of me can't sort out what medications he would need 2 + months later) or option 2 - which is most likely - they've put it on the wrong file and now someone else who needs their meds doesn't have them. Holy mother of pearls what the helk is going on over there. I love your use of "Disturbances" :-) I agree with you on the LID. It's why I keep going back to the idea of cooking for him. I'm not ready for that yet though. HAHAH I'm glad I'm not the only one that is doing that. I feel must less nuts now. Me too. Poor baby - fix one thing - cause another trying to fix it. You all will be the first I tell. You're my peeps! I am laughing right now only because I react the same way. You should have seen my face when his regular vet said "Well that food he's on will get rid of the crystals so as much as you think it's junk, he needs it right now." Reaction: *freaking out inside* then very calmly : "Crystals? What do you mean Crystals? I was told he didn't have crystals." When he was first brought in there were no crystals - they failed to tell me he developed them during us fixing him. *Sigh* We love them - so we panic. Heart murmurs are graded 1 to 6. A 2 is a soft murmur so that's a good sign. I'm glad they noticed it and took the time to check her out properly. I hate emerg visits so I give you biggest hugs right now. Hypertension - yup - that would make sense. Please let us know how she does on the follow up. I'm hoping it's a fluke from not feeling so well. *whispers* It's going pretty good - I don't want to say it to loud or think it to loud - cause they'll knowwwwww and then no one will co-operate. Yeah - just say "no" to that toothpaste stuff. No good at all. Bad stuff in it. I'm reading up on the Strix. Might be a good option temporarily to loosen stuff off. The power has to be in hotter water first, then cooled so might not be good for the fountains - but I am going to email them. Doesn't hurt to ask. @TheBoy'sMom - your cat sounds a lot like mine! I recently had to change Amber's diet to novel protein and increase her wet food intake, and she loves food when its new but doesn't like to eat it again after that. It took me probably 3-4 months of trying various foods with various toppers and being persistent to finally get her to eat the new stuff. Toppers are a good idea for enticing them and also, I learned, patience and persistence. I hope you manage to find one your kitty will eat![/QUOTE] o,O brilliant idea! I'm sure I can get some and give it a whirl! It would be nice to reduce the toppers and therefore be able to reduce some of the extra possible problems.
