Mancat Monday

Hi everyone, it's mes, Carmine!

Sorry if my photo is kind of fuzzy or blurry.  Mes would not hold still so the Mom could get a better photo of mes.  And the leg in the background?  That's the Mom's friend standing behind mes near the sink, MOL!

Mes has been doing okay.  Sometimes mes eats my dinner and snacks and sometimes mes only eats a little of thems.  But the one thing the Mom says hers can almost always count on is mes eating my breaky.  I sure do like my breaky!  The Mom doesn't know why mes likes to eat in the morning better than at night though.

The Mom talked with Dr. M last week.  Dr. M talked with my Internal Medicine Specialist.  Theys want the Mom to lower my Pred dose from 7.5mg a day to 5mg a day.  The Mom agrees with that, but hers is nervous about it, too, since mes crashed so hard months ago when theys lowered my Pred dose.  Maybe yous all can send some purrs and prayers that mes will do okay on the lower dose? 

The vets want to get mes off the higher dose as soon as possible because theys worry about mes becoming a diabetic kitty if mes stays on the higher dose for too long.  Mes doesn't know what a "diabetic kitty" is.  Mes just wants to be a regular ol' kitty.

Lita hasn't had any asthma attacks for at least three weeks, so the Mom lowered her Pred dose back to 5mg like the fill-in vet suggested.  

Mes has had fun this last week bothering Lita.  Mes will jump up on the bed when the Mom reads.  If Lita is in my spot, sometimes mes will sit ON hers!  The Mom says that isn't very nice, but mes thinks it is pretty funny!  Don't worry, mes doesn't sit on hers very often, but you know....Lita is getting old isn't a Spring chicken anymore; some kitty has to keep hers on hers toes, right?

Mes hopes yous all has a great week!

  9. I am purring that you can cope well with the lower dose of Pred., Carmine. The lower the dose that you need the better it is.
