Purrs and Prayers for Carmine

A purrs and prayers badge for Carmine
Hi everybody, it's mes, Carmine with Mancat....Friday?

The Mom said that mes could post a special update today because mes hasn't been doing all that well.  On Tuesday the Mom made me go see Dr. Stabby again.  The Mom said hers thought mes lost weight, but her friend D said hims thought mes had to gain weight 'cause mes was eating a lot of canned noms for a few days.

The Mom put mes on the scale, and it turns out mes lost weight like hers thought.  Hers wasn't so happy about that.  Mes was down another 3 ounces, so mes weighs 10 pounds 5 ounces nows.  The vet says that is not a "bad" weight for mes, but hers and the Mom are worried about mes weight loss trend and don't want mes to keep losing weight.

The Mom and Dr. Stabby had a discussion about what to do with my treatment nows.  Dr. Stabby said theys could raise my Prednisolone dose, but hers and the Mom don't really like that idea very much.  Theys decided to put mes back on B12 injections for nows.  I heard the Mom says that hers is bringing mes back next week so Dr. Stabby can teach hers how to give mes the injections at home so mes doesn't have to go all the way to the vet every week.  Mes is going to give the Mom very pathetic looks and meows so hers feels very guilty about giving mes shots.

Dr. Stabby says if the injections don't help mes, theys might have to switch my medication from Prednisolone to Budesonide.

The past couple of days mes has not eaten much at all.  If mes eats any of my canned food dinner, breakfast, or snacks, mes will eat a few bites and walk away.  The Mom is going to call Dr. Stabby and see what hers wants hers to do since Dr. Stabby doesn't want mes to have appetite stimulants right nows.  Dr. Stabby and the Mom wish mes would eat more.  The Mom says hers will try to get different canned noms at the PetSmart later today.  Hers says this reminds hers of trying to feed Jewel - never knowing what Jewel would actually eat from one day to the next.

  12. Carmine, I'm sending you lots of purrs! Please eat! And tell your human that my human had to give shots to BINGA for a while, and both of them survived. :) Since it's done mostly by feel, her eyesight shouldn't be a problem.

  25. I am purring for you Carmine. My mum gives me a B12 shot every week and I don't mind it at all. I hope it helps you to eat.

  26. Dear Carmine we are praying for you here! I am sorry you are not feeling purrfect & losing your appetite. You Mum is ERY brave to attempt to learn giving the Pred shots. Doctor Dave asked me when Nylablue was alive & I almost fainted from the mere thought!!! So Nylablue went to Vet's weekly....she was in better hands....I could not have injected her....
    The B12 is a FAB idea....I wish you could have a bit of Mirtazipine to stimulate your appetite....I there a reason why you can't? (Sorry I have been sick with Pneumonia & lost track of blogs...)
    Please know we both are praying her!
    Love Sherri-Ellen & gentull ~~head rubsss~~ Siddhartha Henry~~

  28. Carmine, we sure hope you start eating again. We've gotten the B12 shots and they really made us feel better. We hope it helps you. We're curious why your vet doesn't want you to have a appetite stimulant. We've had that and it's helped too. We're purring for you.
