Sunday Selfie and an Update.

I tire very easily lately so mum said she would help me with my selfie.
I am joining the Kitties Blue for their blog hop. You can see more selfies at The Cat on my Head.



My Update.
Today is day 10 of my antibiotics and then I don't have to take them any more. I am getting tired of having pills all the time but my mum and dad say it is to help me feel better. I still have to take my pred and heart tablets though, and I have a B12 injection once a week.
When my pee was tested again it was much better. There is still a trace of blood but that has been there ever since I got ill and nothing seems to get rid of it. At least it is much better than a week ago when the reading was off the scale. The white blood cell in the sample is okay now also.

When I had the NSAID injection earlier in the week, it made no difference to me at all. That decreases the possibility that something is causing me considerable pain.
I still don't want to eat very much. I usually have wet food but am barely touching it. I have decided I prefer dry, so am having a good quality grain free kibble. My mum prefers me to have wet but says eating dry is much better than not eating anything. My weight has stabilised again, probably because there are more calories in the dry. I do drink a lot which I always have done.

I don't have a lot of energy and sleep most of the time, and I don't really want to go for walks very often. If I do, dad carries me back and we only go to the paddock behind the garden hedge.
Yesterday I wanted to go and mum and dad came with me. Mum had to go back to do something and me and dad walked to the top of the paddock. I saw mum come back through the gate and ran flat out down to her! She and dad were very surprised. I slept for ages after.

My mum speaks to my vet every day because he wants daily updates until I am doing better. Thank you everybody for all the purrs and prayers, they are helping me because I was not at all well just over a week ago.

  15. Flynn, we're glad to read that you're improving and that your latest results were much, much better. Also that you ran to your mum!

    As for dry versus wet, sure canned is better, but who cares? Eating a decent quality food is more important, and if you're eating kibble, that's great! Keep it up!

  16. Dear Ginger Brother Flynn! I'm glad you're feeling better......I love seeing you napping in your flower pot......Like you, I'm eating more dry food now as well AND I sleep most of the time. When I go out with Mom I don't go far but I love getting fresh air! I'm so happy your test results are good - keep up the good work!!!

    Love, Sammy

  33. Thank you, Flynn. All in all, it does sound like you are doing better. We are sure that antibiotics do you good but they also probably tire you out. Enjoy each day as it comes, dear friend.

  48. Sweet Flynn. Sleep is very restorative, so sleep as much as you want. Kibble may not be the ideal food, but we say you should eat whatever you want as long as you keep eating. It sounds as if you have a wonderful and caring vet, who will work hard to get you healthy again. We are so happy you had a nice walk. We love you and are purring and praying 24/7 for you. You look quite sweet in your snoozy selfie and Mom is sending you a kiss for your nose. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

  49. You're right, Flynn, hard food is better than none at all, and I'm sure your mum and dad are making sure you get the best. We can give our cats only what they will eat. You rest as much as you want, my friend, but stay as active as you can, too. We'll be waiting on each update. Good luck to you.

  58. Oh Flynnie, how we'd love to kiss your sweet, sleepy face. You are such a darling boy. We are relieved and very happy to know you are starting to feel better. Try your very best to eat. You need to keep up your strength. Your vet has probably checked you for bladder stones which can cause blood in the urine. They were only discovered by ultrasound in our angel kitty brother. It's said that some breeds get them but our boy was a mixed breed. You know you are always in our prayers and in our hearts. All of our love to you always.

  59. Hey Flynn, Buddy! I am furry glad to hear you are doing a bit better! Eating, even a little, is so much better than not, and nuffing wrong with long restorative naps. Your Human servants are doing a good job helping you visit the great outdoors, too. We are still purraying for you, Flynn. XOXOXOX

  64. Flynn, Isadora and the humans here know exactly what you and your pawrents are going through. It's tough not to feel one hundred percent well; for everybody but especially for the fur baby. We love that you ran to your Mama. That was a special gift you gave her. You are in our thoughts and we are sending you and your Mama love and hugs.
