Update from Dad: Now Zoe is not wanting to eat again and we are feeding her.
Hello everyone. Let me tell you, I sure have had a time of it and I so appreciate all the purrs and well wishes you have sent my way. Brother Brian and Dad told me about each one of them.
I had my tummy cut open on October 10th, and they had to open up my stomach too. The Vet told me that I had one huge furball in there and that is why I didn’t want to eat. I know Brian told you, but that furball was almost as big as a baseball. I had to go back on October 17th and get my stitches and staples removed. The Vet said I healed up beautifully, so that’s a good thing.
Now I am supposed to start eating on my own again. Well, I have, and it has been slow picking up the pace. Some days I eat more than others. Maybe I’m just out of practice. After I was done with my antibiotics and pain meds I did start to pull out my fur again. Yikes! Dad had taken me off of the Atopica, which helps me not pull out my furs, because he thought maybe that was causing me to stop eating. Since that “likely” wasn’t the case, it was my furbaseball, the Vet said to put me back on the Atopica. Guess what happened? I quit pulling out my furs and I quit eating again.
So, the Dad has decreased my daily dose and now I am to the point where I am eating again and not pulling out my furs. I haven’t been eating a whole lot of any one food, but I have been eating some of a whole lot of different foods. I’m pretty sure that Dad has bought just about every cat food ever made. Well, not really, but let me tell you there are cans and cases of food everywhere.
So, that’s where I am as of today. I have seemed more alert and I did discover that ham is really, really yummy. This has been a slower healing process than I thought it would be, but I am sure trying my best. I love you all.
Oh, one more thing, I’m going to be doing the Easy tomorrow and I’m going to try my paw at the selfie thing, if I feel up to it. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
