Sleepy me and Christmas card.....








This was me last night and is how I spend a lot of time at the moment. Mum tried to catch me to show you how I curl up so much that you cant tell which end is which but I moved when the flashy box came out. Although I sleep a lot I am not hiding away and I also love to cuddle up with my dad so yes we are getting our quality time together and with the tablets help I am eating.

Mum doesn't know what all the figures mean with levels etc but when she asked these were this week they were : Creatin 521, Urea 20.8 and something else that she didn't catch was 34. When I had been on the drip for four days one level was 12 but mum is not sure which one, she will pay more attention next time. The tablets that are keeping me eating are called Periactin 4mg they don't though make them anymore here so the vet will try to source them from elsewhere.

Right enough of me waffling because you will all be so fed up of hearing all this.It does help mum to talk about it though and we are so grateful for you listening and to all your comments and help.

Mum did feel more like commenting and yesterday visited many friends and leave a comment, she will visit some more because we have missed so much.

We got our snail mail cards out last week and this week some E cards, if we missed any then we are sorry. Please take a copy of my card either from here or the sidebar and take with our love. The wonderful Ann made my card..

With much love to everyone... GJ xxx

You are in our prayers every day.
We love you.

GJ, Sleep is nature's way of healing, so we say nap freely and often! We are happy that you're getting quality lap time and snuggles. Keep on eating...we hope your appetite rebounds on it's own, so there's no more pills!

Nothing like catching some zzzz's and snuggles. We got your e-card it was beautiful. Sniffs, The HoundDogs

Fuzzy Tales said...

Aw, GJ, we love the pics of you curled up. We're glad you're not hiding away and continue to purr and purray for you.

Your test results might not mean a lot to others who use a different test scale/configuration. Your mum would have to make a PDF or list the values with their range (low to high and where you are on the scale.) Does that make sense?

(((Hugs))) and kitty kisses.

GJ, Here is a good resource for your Mom and your bloodwork:

There's a link for conversions, too.

You look quite cozy all curled up GJ, and keep snuggling with you Dad. That is one pretty Christmas card too. We are all sending you all our love, purrs and hugs! Get your rest my friend.

Simba said...

You look so comfy on your hammick, GJ. You Christmas Card is lovely. We will take one for our blog. We don't have an eCard to give away, but you and your Mum and Dad should know we and our humans wish you a very very happy Christmas.

Madi and Mom said...

Ah GJ...we know the numbers are important as my sis's kitty has issues too but one thing for sure your pictures today if rated would be 10+!! Most handsome pictures.
Hugs to you all Madi and Mom

Rene said...

Write all you'd like about GJ--it helps to get it out, and we understand.

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

Have a nice rest GJ, take it easy over the holidays!!

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Hi Ginger Jasper, glad to hear you are enjoying those snuggles with your dad. Still up to playing tricks on your peeps though. We do that too. Everytime mum thinks she has a great shot, we move hahaha. Take care oh fluffy friend. Tell your mum she can talk about you as much as she wants cause we like hearing about you!! No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

Whisppy said...

Sleeping is nature's way of letting our bodies heal, so take all the naps you need. It's good that the pills are working and that you are eating. That's a step in the right direction, GJ.
You look very comfy napping on your hammick! And thank you for the christmas card!

MrsB said...

You sure look sweet all curled up! Take it easy, that's what we say.
Get lots of hugs and kiss from your parents and keep eating.
It was so good to see you sweet face today!

Kari said...

We want to know everything that is going on with you, sweet Jasper, especially your lab values. Many of us are mums of kidney cats and it helps us to better understand what is going on with our most precious boy. (The US uses a different measuring system than the UK and the rest of the world.).
We are glad to hear that your vet will help you find the medication you need to make you eat. We were quite worried about that.
You look amazing, though! We just can't imagine that a kitty as ill as you can look so magnificent!
We adore you Jasper and will be thankful to do anything possible to help you. You remain in our prayers and our hearts. God bless you, dearest.

Sparkle said...

It sounds like you are being well taken care of, GJ. Sleeping is good for you - you need to conserve your energy. Take care of yourself, and keep eating!

GreatGranny said...

So glad to see you all curled up on your hammick, sweet GJ. Tell Mom to continue to blog what she wants to. We love hearing from you all and how you're doing. You're still in our thoughts and prayers. Thanks for the beautiful Christmas card, GJ.
xoxo Kassey and her Mom

The Whiskeratti said...

What wonderful pictures. We're glad that there has been improvement for you, Jasper.

The Monkeys said...

GJ, we are happy to hear that you're still eating and trying to bring your weight up! We have not been blogging much, but we purr for you every day without fail! Keep up the good work. We love you!

A very merry Christmas to you and yours, Ginger Jasper. And tell your mum not to worry about writing about the things you're going through. It helps to talk about them, I know, and we all want to listen. If we didn't, we wouldn't be here. Take care.

Old Kitty said...

Beautiful GJ!

I hope this helps:

Creatine and urea are waste products that normal kidneys get rid off. I haven't a clue what the normal levels of such things are - I hope the vet can tell you so you can compare these results with what should be GJ's normal levels.

I'm guessing the other test results are the red and white blood cell counts? Again there is a normal level for the cell counts - too high and too low is not good and keeping these counts stable is the important thing too.

I hope you get more of these appetite tablets! They seem to be doing the trick helping GJ eat.

Oh but GJ is looking so floofy and so sweet all curled up asleep. I'm so happy he wants cuddles now - that's truly the bestest sign of all! Take care please GJ and mum and dad. Me and Charlie love you all!

GJ, you are such an adorable ball of handsome floof! If our mommy was there she'd wake you up so she could cuddle with her. She's a chronic cuddler!

We don't have one (since Mommy doesn't know how to do it) but we hope you have a Merry Christmas!

We're happy to see you enjoying your hammick, GJ! We're not sure what your numbers mean either because they measure differently in the UK than they do here in the states. You just keep enjoying your hammick and your cuddles, GJ!!

All those numbers make me a little dizzy. I am just happy to see you snuggling and enjoying being home.

Gattina said...

I think it's very nice that your mum keeps us updated and it's right it does good to talk and get some advices and comfort. You are not alone.
It intrigued me so much to know more about this medicine that I googled the name and found : PERIACTIN has a wide range of antiallergic and antipruritic activity etc. just have a look. In Canada it's even available without prescription.
Hope you continue to eat and keep on ! Merry Christmas !

Jenna and Sissy said...

Lots of wonderful naps and cuddling! We are glad you are eating. We are purring for you. Our human said to ask the vet what is normal when he tells you a lab result.

You look so comfy!
I've been spending a lot of time asleep on Mom's bed. I figure if I sleep, the time will go faster, and Santa will come sooner.
Hope you are feeling OK.
