Happy Birthday Tosun!! by Spursfan on 13 November 2009 9:30am
 
Our Tosun is 5 today!! Flippin' 'eck where did the years go...doesn't seem 5 mins not 5 years since we were cooing over him aged 2 or 3 weeks!!

On another tack, one of our cats is poorly. She is long hair but hasn't been grooming herself lately and went very thin and weak. We have kept her in for a week to see if she'd build herself up a bit, as normally she is out from brekkie to teatime. Well she did a bit as her appetite is still good, but yesterday we decided it was time for the vet.

She checked her heart with a stethoscope (hard, as Ebru was purring so loudly!) - ok; checked her temp - upper end of normal; and gave her a couple of injections, an antibiotic and an anti-inflammatory. We've to take her back on Saturday morning, when the injections will have worn off.

She has perked up a lot, but we know it is probably the jabs. If she is no better on Saturday morning she'll have bloodtests. The vet mentioned thyroid or liver probs (the vet checked if she could feel Ebru's thyroid which is a sign of probs with it, but she couldn't which is good).

Hope Ebru recovers from this; the cats are only 7 and her sister (from the same litter) would be lost without her (as would we). Up until recently they would cuddle up together and have mutual grooming sessions - sometimes you couldn't tell where one cat ended and the other started!

Happy Birthday to the Devil Dog ! :)
Sorry to hear about the cat. The cat, McGill, that we adopted earlier this year from our neighbours, seems remarkably fit considering he is at least 15 years old and is an outdoor cat. We feed him those 'Felix' sachets and he eats four of them a day and sometimes looks for more. Is that too much ? He is an average sized cat and that's what his previous owners fed him.
Oh, we heard bad news about my ex-neighbour. They retired overseas earlier this year ( they are 61 and 60 ) but one of the other neighbours informed us that they are back in the U.K and the wife is being treated for breast cancer. It's a cruel blow when they were looking forward to their new life in the sun. Fingers crossed she will be ok.

Happy Birthday, Tosun!

May you have plenty of treats.

Sorry to hear about your ex-neighbour, Johnny, and sorry about your cat, Ebru, Anne. Maybe she picked up some infection somewhere.

So sorry about your neighbour, Johnny. That is just so typical, isn't it.

Our 2 cats have Whiskas sachets (usually - sometimes Felix) and have one each for brekkie and one each for tea. But they are fairly small cats, so if McGill is a large cat eating 4 and not getting fat on it, that should be ok. Are you giving him cat bikkies with it? They need them for their teeth.

Ebru has been quite frisky and bright today. Just have to wait until tomorrow when the injections have worn off. Hopefully it is just an infection, Sue - which the Vet hinted at with her having a slightly high temp.

Birthday wishes and get well prayers are heading across the pond to your babies, Anne.
 
Re: Happy Birthday Tosun!! by johnnythemonkey on 13 November 2009 2:24pm
 
No Anne, we've not being giving him bikkies. Just followed what his owners said and fed him that.

Happy arfday, Tosun! Hope it's full of all the things that make life good for dogs!
Ebru-kitty, get better quick! Anne, please give them pats from me.
Johnny, sorry about the neighbor. I'll get a candle going for all concerned parties during my afternoon quiet time.

It's best to put a few in with the food, Johnny, otherwise they can get probs with the tartar on their teeth. They need something crunchy to help them with that.

Obviously if McGill is hunting he'll get it from crunching the bones *shudder*. Our two get a small handful each with their teatime meal (catbix that is, not bones hahaha).
