Sister Saturday Caturday Art, Test Results and a Too Long Mane with Seal

sister saturday seal 01 06052021

Hello everyone, it sure has been a while since I did a Sister Saturday post, it’s been two whole weeks. Can you believe it? The last time I did a Sister Saturday post was in May and now here we are in June. I haven’t done a post since last Month. Okay, let’s get on with it then.

I usually don’t like to discuss health things but my tests for my pancreas were still outstanding. The results are in, I don’t have pancreatitis, and that’s a good thing. The test I had was called a TLI/PLI/Cobalamin/Folate and was done at Texas A & M. The only thing found was the tiny possibility of Irritable Bowel Disease, but nothing really definitive so the results are good.

Now then, about this long mane of mine. This is the last photo of this long mane. Shortly after this photo the Dad trimmed it up for me and got it back to normal. It was really, really bothering me. I would lick and lick at it. It was so long I couldn’t eat without dipping it in my stinky goodness. So before to long you’ll see the Me with a normal mane. Thanks Dad!

Okay. enough about all that stuff, it’s time for my Caturday Art…

  1. Memories of Eric and Flynn

    I am glad your test result were good and ruled out pancreatitis. Your winter mane had got very long. Whilst it does look lovely it must have been difficult for you to keep it clean. Your art is very pretty.

    We’re so glad your test results were good, gorgeous. And now for that impressive, flowing mane- It sure adds to your beauty, and your artwork is fantabulous, dear Seal.

  3. Teddy

    Glad for the OK test results!! Also think you look gorgeous after your “haircut” – who wants their mane dragging around in their food????

    Hugs, Teddy

    Great news about your tests! It’s a good thing that you got your furs cut, who wants cat hair in their food? Hahaha! Have a good weekend!

  5. Martha

    I’m so glad to hear the test results were good! Your mane is beautiful but glad dad got you all trimmed up. I can’t wait to see a photo!

  6. Kitties Blue

    We really like your art, Seal. Giulietta’s mane is always a mess, and she hates when Mom brushes it. Mom never thought of trimming it. She is probably going to get a Lion cut sometime this summer. We are delighted to hear that your “passed” your tests.XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet

    I can’t wait to see you with normal mane, you have had your long mane since I met you. summer is a good time for a trim…

  8. Leah

    Those are good test results, Seal and I’m happy to read that! That is quite a mane and I can see where trimming could be helpful! You look so beautiful in both pictures and the art pic is really gorgeous!

    Hurray for good news! ~hugs~ I used to trim my beautiful Luna’s mane sometimes. It was an infrequent wintertime event throughout her lifetime. 🙂

    Good to hear your results were pretty good Seal!!
    Bet you are loving your new Summer do, especially if it means you get to eat your food and not wear it 😉

  12. Derry and the biped

    We’re glad your test results were good. Could it be SIBO? The biped has been dealing with that via her naturopath, but apparently has had it a long time (based on the high levels of bacteria, when she did the test!). Interestingly, Ernie’s mom (Island Cats) commented (on one of the biped’s blog posts) that cats can get SIBO too, though it’s very hard to diagnose. (Heck, the biped’s human doctors don’t even know of it, or at least not the endless procession of residents she’s seen at her clinic.) Anyway, SIBO can present with a lot of IBS symptoms, but as it’s an overgrowth of (good) bacteria in the small intestine (bacteria that belong in the large intestine), it does require antimicrobial or antibiotic treatment. We have no idea what kind of pharmaceutical antibiotics would target that; the biped has had a couple of rounds of herbal antimicrobials, in conjunction with daily biofilm disruptors. We had NO idea how a cat would be treated, but maybe Ernie’s mom would have more info on that. We’re just tossing this out as a possibility!

    Anyway, we love that Lunapic effect! The biped will try to remember that one. 🙂

  13. The Poupounette Gang

    We are so, so pleased about those results, Seal! As to that mane, if course, the other possibility would have been to braid it, which would probably have taken your Dad about a week!!! You always look lovely, Seal, whatever the length of your mane!

    Purrs,
    Tama and Benny

    That’s good news on your test results (nothing serious being found). It might be a bit frustrating to not have clear answers, but hopefully you can get your tummy settled down with some dietary adjustments.
    We’ve had some long-maned kitties who would get food in their fur, or get their floof stuck in their mouth while grooming. Mom never thought to trim it because she likes long-hair kitties. Your dad is very wise for making your floof more functional.
