This is not really a selfie but was taken by Carol. I think it passes as one though.
This is the sight that greeted my mum and dad, and Carol and Barrie when they came home after a day out. I was lying outside looking in through the garage cat flap.
I had heard the car arrive back so I was rolling around outside on the concrete waiting for tummy tickles.
You can see more selfies with the Kitties Blue at The Cat on my Head.
Those of you on FB will already know that I am having health problems again.
On Thursday night I was throwing my left back leg out and stumbling as I walked. The next day it was worse. Mum was worried I had a clot and checked my paws which were warm, a good sign. She checked my eyes too and they were steady.
She rang our vet, Mark and although he had a full day he was able to fit me in later in the afternoon. He knows me so well now and the problems I have with medication acting against me, so will always see me if at all possible rather than one of the other vets. He told my mum to give me a low dose aspirin immediately which would help protect me if it was a clot.
He said it is not a major clot because we would have been in no doubt if it was. He can't completely rule out it being a small one though.
He thinks it could be a severe arthritis flare up even though I have never shown signs of it before. We cats are very good at hiding things as you all know.
I had a Prednisalone in the morning so he couldn't inject me with the steroid he wanted to as I couldn't have both in the same 24 hours. He said not to give me my evening Pred, and to ring him in the morning to give him an update. If there was no improvement to withhold that Pred too and for dad to go and collect the steroid injection. I had that at 11am on Saturday, and as of 7pm Saturday there was no change. Mum was to ring him again at 8.30pm on Saturday via the emergency number because he is on call all weekend.
I will update as and when anything changes.
We haven't done much visiting the last couple of days, but I am sure you all understand.
Your purrs would be greatly appreciated.
