Some News About Jewel

Everyone's purrs and prayers must be starting to work!

Jewel went to the vet today to get her blood pressure checked and to get a urinalysis.  According to Jewel's dad, her blood pressure is high, and the vet gave her a blood pressure medication to try.  She wants to see Jewel after we finish the first bottle.

We've decided Jewel will spend more time here because the kitten at her daddy's house might not be helping her blood pressure (the kitten likes to follow Jewel around and poke at her).

This is the first time she's gone to the vet and NOT lost weight.  She gained a half an ounce.  Yay!  I figured out that she will eat Fancy Feast and Pro Plan.  She needs to gain about another pound before I start to breathe easier, though.

The vet also gave Jewel more medicine for her diarrhea.  The stuff smells AWFUL; I cannot even imagine how it must taste!!  Jewel spits most of it out, so I don't know how I'm going to get it in her yet.  I thought maybe try to mix it with a little tuna juice?

  1. Poor Jewel! Maybe she would take her meds if they were crushed up and put in some Gerber meat baby food ... mine will eat anything if it's in baby food. Hope she's better soon.

  2. Aaah Jewel! It looks like spending more time with Sierra and less time having a kitten whapping your bum is just the ticket to help you feel better. The medicine will help too, so please try not to spit all of it out. Though we would, and we would hold out for tuna juice too hehe

  6. Poor Jewel. High blood pressure is tough, and the meds aren't cheap. We hope that spending time with you will help her blood pressure and allow her to have a better time.

  12. Yay Jewel! Glad she's feeling a little better. If the medicine smells that horrible, mixing it with food may not help. We used to have some medicines for cats compounded at a pharmacy to taste good with flavors like triple fish. It's more expensive though.

  17. Oh that is good news that Jewel is a tiny bit better. We sure hope the new medicine works for you. It is hard to get the medicine into the cat. Still sending tons of purrs.

  18. Keep up the good work eating, Jewl. We are sorry you have to take BP medication - was there any chance yourBP was elevated due to stress being at the vet's? Mom's sister's cat had some bp issues, but they would usually keep her there all day and measure it several times to get a good reading, since it was usually very high when she first got there.

  19. We are so pleased to hear that Jewel is a little better - we will send a double helping of purrs to see if that helps her to get better more quickly.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx
