My vet update......

                                     Hello everyone. Firstly thank you all so much for the good wishes you left me. I went to see the nice vet man yesterday tea time and he did all the checks. he stole my bloods again and said the results would be in today. Mum and dad talked to him about me and how was I doing. The vet man said he was so  pleased with how I had beaten the odds and had kept going when they had not expected me to. It was now 18 months since I was so very ill.  He did say that my levels had been creeping up each time recently and that the appetite loss was also a little decline. Mum called for the results and the vet man said the levels had once again gone up, but more worrying was that the phosphorous levels were very high and this was not good at all, he prescribed some powder that has to go on my food twice a day and should hopefully help with that. Mum spoke to him again and he did say I was showing signs of decline but they would do their best to keep me stable as long as  possible and that at the moment I am enjoying a good quality of life. Mum agreed and both her and dad and the vet will do their utmost to keep that as long as possible.
  Mum and dad are at a wedding tomorrow and the rest of the weekend at a 40's weekend at Howarth. The first big event of the year. I will be at home with Tristan, Sue and the girls coming in to me. Mum and dad will worry but the vet said as long as I am in my own home I should be OK and will sleep a lot.
   Love and hugs to all.. GJ xx

I am sending you my purrs for the powders to get your phosphorus levels down. Do you eat fish or fish based food because fish can raise the levels. Mum used to give me and Eric fish twice a week a few years ago, but when she found out we only got it as an occasional treat.

STELLA and RORY from Down Under said...

Howdy Ginger Jasper, take it easy fluffy friend. We are thinking of you and don't give your mum and dad any trouble when they want you to eat ok? Hey, why don't you get into mischief while they are away. Yeah, have you an indoor plant you could dig in? We just know that would make them feel happy. Gentle hugs and slobber are coming your way ........gotcha. Take care mate.
No worries, and LOVE, Stella and Rory

How old are you now Ginger Jasper??? Tiger lived a year and a half befor Kiddney got him and our vet at that time thought that was a long time. Tiger was 17 when he left us. Happy was 21 or 22 years old with no kiddney trouble at all.
Most cats get kiddney trouble if they live long enough.
Thamks so much for your visit!!

Paws crossed for you GJ: the phosphorus balance is tricky. We really the powder doesn't make your food taste different.

Hi GJ! Is that powder stuffs called epakitin? That's what mom puts on Jewel's food for her high phosphorus levels. Don't worry, Jewel doesn't even notice it's in the food, so we think maybe it doesn't tastes bad.

We are sending purrrrs and hugs to you and your humans!
