Cat Updates
Sweet Sasha lost her fight with cancer.  She had some good last days,  lots of visitors  and staff loving on her
Sweet Sasha was only with us for a few months but I think she was happy here.  Below is a video made of her playing when she first arrived.
Snicker is doing well, eating etc.
Hair is finally growing in, looking less motley
Wifi is doing well :)   He has been neutered and is now caged in the Wed. Ustream  room to get adjusted to the other cats. I removed his feeding tube today.
Autumn is doing well
Casey is doing well.  The lung biopsy came back as a benign cyst!  YEAH!  Surgery was the only it was going to disappear.  She is going back for one last set of X-rays and then she will be released by the vet.
Greta had suddenly lost a pound over a few days. Her blood work actually gives us little guess as to why she has stopped eating.  And she is not eating.   She now has a feeding tube and we are waiting on a GI panel blood test that takes a bit longer to come back from the lab.
Boots is doing well,  is now on steroid therapy
Let’s talk about feeding tubes.   If your cat is not eating there is a serious chance of liver lipidosis.  This is SEVERE and LIVE THREATENING!  If your cat is not eating, take it very serious!!   If your cat is not eating, take the cat immediately to the vet! You can choose to syringe feed your cat BUT you will be spending many hours giving your cat the amount of food they need.  Talk to your vet to determine the amount of food to feed to give them the amount of calories they need.  It could be 160 CC’s or more! Syringe feeding is difficult for you and the cat that does not want to eat.  Discuss with your vet having a feeding tube inserted.   Feeding becomes so much less stressful on you and the cat.  Feeding tubes save lives!
Here is a video showing me tube feeding Greta
Here is a great website to get the kitty kollars we use for the feeding tube.  Your vet may use these collars,  if not,  you will wish they did. So much easier!     http://kittykollar.com     They also have syringe supplies.
