Poor guy. I've had several cases where the furkids needed help but the vets wouldn't risk it. John
We have not even looked into operating on the caractacts. He has tested badly with anesthesia so that would not be an option. He gets around when he wants. I am guessing he sees some and shadows as he does not bump into anything and finds the dish and food and such.
Thanks Tim. The television was my own fault for not unplugging it. Van Gogh is doing great. She's 5 years old this summer. She still lays next to my face every night, although she never stays there long.
David, I'm sorry the furkids are having it a little rough. Are the cataracts inoperable? I know sometimes if they're getting on in years, vets are reluctant to do some things.
Peggy, I haven't been to Illinois since Mom's funeral. If you didn't live there I'd almost swear it fell off the Earth! I keep thinking about all those drives I made back and forth, and I never realized, she was my last link to where I grew up. It's all still very unreal. John
Perseus is fine, it is not cancer and nothing need be done. :)
Orion... Poor guy. He has cataracts (his eyes have a grey look now) and he limps and just sleeps all day, except to eat. He is the same age as Nova, but aged far worse. The vet told us early this year (or was it late last) that he likely won't be with us at the end of this year. :( He has bad lumbar and knee arthritis now too and gets laser therapy weekly now as well as meds for his thicken intestine. He has been having some issues getting into the litter box now and has peed outside of it enough that I use pee pads at the box openings now. With all that, he is as comfortable as he can be now.
Andie has having some issues, but not sure what yet. She heeps having diarrhea on the bathroom floor, or a cat bed (that she does NOT use except for that). She won't eat food much so is on medication to help her appatite and that is working.
Apollo's pemphigus is still there, but his meds keep him from being really uncomfortable. He seems happy enough.
Nova is fine as is Perseus.
Apollo, Orion, Andromeda and Nova have stopped cleaning themselves to different degrees, causing hair to mat. So we spend time each week unmatting or shaving (and in most cases fighting as they hate this).
How is Perseus I know you posted something about a fatty growth or something like that also is Orion doing ok I remember him having some problems also Andromeda and Apollo. Also prayers that your Mom is ok too David. Anyway I hope they are doing ok. Sorry about your tv John sometimes we just can't win. And I hope everything is going good in Illinois for Peggy. I hope all of everybody's cats and people are well. Later Tim
