Eric's Day Flashback and an Update.

This week the flashback comes from June 2008 and tells of how we first got our plant pots.

Do you remember the great big plant pot we found in the greenhouse? Mum had put weeds and cut grass in it to throw away. We decided it was a good place for napping but only one of us could get in at a time.Mum told us not to get to attached to it because it was soon going outdoors so she could put her tomato plants growing in the greenhouse.

Well, she didn't take it out, but she put another one in there as well, and put nice sweet horse hay in there for us to sleep on. Look we have one each. We were hoping she wouldn't plant her tomatoes too soon.


Look what she did! She left our big plant pots for us to nap in, and planted her tomatoes around them. That means we can come in here all summer and nap if we want to. Thanks mum, just make sure you don't water us when you water the tomatoes.

Flynn Update:
Mum rang up yesterday to see if my blood test results had come back yet. My vet was day off so she spoke to a different vet.
The thyroid number scale used in the UK is different to the readings used in the USA. My vet said she would like my number to be between 20 and 25, and before I started the pills it was 55. Last time it was 21 and this time it is 22 so it looks like I am on the right dose to keep it where it should be.
My kidney and proteinurea results are all okay too so we are happy with that. Now if I could just get my appetite back......

Those big pots were PERFECT nap spots - you boys were lucky your Mom planted tomatoes AROUND them back then!! I'm so happy that your thyroid numbers are good Flynn. Looks like you and I are in GOOD SHAPE. Hope your appetite comes back. I don't eat like I used to either but my vet says it's better for my arthritis not to be as heavy as I was!

Sending Hugs Across the Pond
Love, Sammy

Marg said...

Our favorite pictures have always been you two in your pots. That is so terrific.
Glad to hear that your blood is all right Flynn but we sure wish you would start eating. We know that frustration of trying to get a kitty to eat. Take care.

Fuzzy Tales said...

Flynn, Derry is so jealous you have those awesome pots. :-)

We're glad you're doing well and have our paws crossed you'll feel like eating more again. You could take about 4 pounds from us, if you need to gain weight (2 pounds each). LOL.

Purrs.

You always make Granny happy with your pictures, Flynn. These are so over-cute, that Granny could smile under her painful hamster-cheeks :D We're happy that everything is under controle now, that's a relief. Healing Pawkisses are on their way for a good appetite and a happy weekend <3 Granny and Little Binky :)

The Florida Furkids said...

We've always loved the pictures of the two of you in your pots! You both looked so comfy in them. Thanks for sharing them again.

Those are great photos of the 2 of you. I wish I had been reading cat blogs back when Eric was still with you.I am glad you are doing well. I think there are some meds that encourage appetite, not that you want pills.

Honey P. Sunshine said...

Keep up the good work, Flynn, with those numbers!

Katie Isabella said...

Flynn, I could not be more pleased darling boy. LOVE you.

Fur Everywhere said...

Those plant pots were perfect for you two boys!

Flynn, we are very happy to hear that all of your blood work came back good. Please eat up, buddy. We know it is not always easy when you don't feel like eating, but it is very important.

Purrs,
Carmine and Milita

Jenna said...

We can't remember if you're on a special diet. If not, I'd suggest a little change in diet. I get tired of my same old food!

William said...

Great news on the tests, Flynn!

We always enjoyed it when you boys went to pot!

Layla Morgan Wilde ( Cat Wisdom 101) said...

Great news and love those pots. Ideal temp for cat food is the same as their tongue 86.F.

Katnip Lounge said...

We had forgotten the plant pot saga!

Flynn, Mommy has started using FortiFlora on our food; it's a probiotic + flavor booster and we eat like HOGS when it's sprinkled on our stinky goodness. Even Sweet Pea!

Cathy Keisha said...

I’m so glad your numbers are where they should be so we have lots more time together. I’m also glad you liked my bikini. Did those tomato plants get so high you couldn’t get into the pots or did you just stomp them?

The Cat From Hell said...

Gosh! Yous two looks like those post was made for yous and mes will comes and feeds yous with my own paws if it would helps yous to eat!
kisses

Kari said...

Oh great news, Flynnie! We're so happy for you! Just a question for you. Has your vet checked the inside of your mouth and your teeth? One of us had stomatitis and it was quite painful to eat. Will you let your mum look inside of your mouth to see if there is any redness or sores?
We love when you guys are potted! What comfy resting spots and you look so adorable too!
Love to all.

Tom, Tama-Chan, Sei-Chan, Bibi-Chan, Gen-Chan, Vidock, Violette said...

Very good on the results, Flynn, but yes, you do need to get your appetite back!

Purrs,
The Chans

ANGEL ABBYGRACE said...

We love seeing both you boys in the planters those are such cute photos and Flynn we are so happy with the results from the bloodwork. Now just eat more noms. Mom said the Vet told her to get some kitten food (she bought the canned) for Mr Jinx to get him more calories, maybe you would like that too. It simply has more calories and stuff for growing kittens, and it has helped put some weight on Jinx.(and on Boo and Annabelle too who have ***HAVE TO**** to also have a bit as well)

Marty the Manx said...

So excited about your numbers!!! Just keep eating sweet Flynn. You and Eric's pots are perfect for two Mancats to hang out in :) Thanks for the Flashback!
Luvs My Friend.

You two were so cute lounging in your flowerpots, and what a super good Mom yours was to let you keep them for napping. So happy to hear the good news about your blood work, Flynn. Time to start eating. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Timmy Tomcat said...

We love those pots that you and Angel Eric had. Great.
So glad your numbers are good too.
We have good medical news that Rumpy has not had any asthma problems in over a week. If he does this for another week Dad is going to take him for an Xray. Hoping this was just a temp reaction to something
Purrs for good health all around!

LP said...
