I remember your sweet Rocket’s passing. I didn’t realize he was also 17. How is Lucas doing? I’m praying for him, of course.

Lucas is still mourning for Rocket, and he’s down to 8 pounds. The vet said his blood work is in normal ranges, but his creatine is approaching the upper limit, so his kidneys will need some attention, even though his BUN is well within normal.

The office clerk called yesterday and said that he has no parasites in his stool. That gave me pause because the stool sample we gave them was to test for liver insufficiency, which I told the woman. She quickly ended the call, saying that the doctor would let us know.

Of course he has no parasites! He has never set foot outside of any of our houses, and he has lived in five* of them. He has been inside or in a kennel/carrier all his life, and he has never had so much as a flea. We have carefully quarantined all new additions to the cat family over the years. All of our cats are very precious to us.

IDIOT office clerk. Makes us wonder what tests were actually done on his stool! Dear Lord. I hope some of his stool was retained for the proper test, or that the IDIOT got it wrong.

Of course your homes are clean! I have no doubt. We won’t talk about mine. LOL.

The snow keeps landing ,evaporating, then applying a few more inches.
At the moment it is just an attractive coating around the edges,more on the way.
The total fall would be about 2 feet, except it only stays to play for a couple of days.

“Are your Statistics people like our Assessors? Their reports set your estate tax?
No, that is assessed on the value of the house in 1995!

Why could he go no further than your front room? Our assessor look at everything and don't tell you when they're coming.”
It transpired that four households in our family had been 'Randomly picked'.
The paperwork in his folder was colour coordinated to coincide with your voting habits,i spotted this the week before on the pre-visit to arrange the meeting time.
These things caused a little suspicion so he was kept quarantined.
These surveys are not Compulsory but the data goes back to Big Gov, better to control the situation than be scrutinized like a lab experiment.
Maybe we’re paranoid, may be not, if you smell a rat get the shovel.
I learned that here!

We lost our Nimh due vet incompetence. He was diabetic. I looked up the symptoms and he had every single one and our vet of 20 years missed them all.

We're looking for a new vet.

I'll pray for Lucas.

I’m so sad and sorry. I know you loved him and he loved you.
I’ve missed you terribly! So glad to see you!
Too many Vets truly suck, big time. We took our Jack to a Vet twice and then no more. DrO and I would treat him, using our best knowledge and yours. Heck, I would sometimes ask my own doctor and he would tell me what to do. He has dogs too!

I'm so angry that I could spit. Nimmys niece, Rags, has become a clinging vine. And even though he was sick, he litter trained the two feral kittens.
He was very patient and sweet.

I've missed you too. Life around here has been "special" lately. lol

Aw, he trained the two feral kittens, so now they’re house kitties! How sweet. I’m so sad he’s gone. I loved hearing about him. He’s with St. Francis. I have to believe that, so I do.

Sigh, I’ll just bet life is “special”. You’re always in my prayers. I’ve tried not to overwhelm you with pings. I put you back where you belong!

OH BOY, thrills for the boys and Mom!
Will they heal quickly?

My notes read, “Thursday, 29 @ 2:00PM,” but it seems to me that’s an old note to myself, although a week from Thursday is January 29.

LOL. I *hate* to call to check on that appointment. I am hoping I stalled it till the 29, but I have a feeling I didn’t and that it’s this coming Thursday. UGH.

I have no idea about neutering and the healing process. Mom might get trained quickly.

BRB. He is home from grocery shopping.

We lost our 2nd cat, Muffin, to a vet’s incompetence as well. He treated Mr. Muff for a disease that he did not have, endocardial hypertrophy, when he actually had an allergy to the vile concoction known as “fish” in canned cat food, which made him vomit every time he ate it.

Trusting the vile, incompetent “doctor,” we destroyed his kidneys ourselves by giving him the prescribed medication, which being unneeded, sickened him.

Stupid us! We sussed that all out later during the postmortem analysis of the whole situation with our new vet, the wonderful Dr. Brisbin of the Benicia Cat Clinic in Northern California. Unfortunately, by the time Dr. Brisbin treated Muffin, it was too late. He loved Muffin almost as much as we did, and he came to our home to kill him when he was suffering and could not be saved.

I still hate that rotten vet, Dr. Teslaa. I hope someone sued him out of business, because I tried to look him up three or four years ago, to see if he were still practicing, but he was not. Thank God.

Thank you so much for your prayers for Lucas. He’s a good boy.

I learn something every time that I lose a cat. Too bad it's too late to save them.

This vet is AAHA accredited. I have no idea how that can be but we were told by them that we weren't "regular" patients. After 20 years. Guess that means that we didn't have enough money for them.

Dammit it all! Several Vets are truly unqualified! In El Cajon, CA, when the children were young, I found a wonderful Vet, a young woman who even treated our birds! She was so sweet and tender with the children’s Parakeet (Billy was a talker and so full of personality), that I ended up taking all of their pets to her. I think young women Vets are the best! She sure loved animals. Her office was full of animals of all types and breeds.
