Mancat Monday: Just Hanging Around with Brian plus a Maxwell Update

mancat monday brian 01092023

Hello everyone, I’m just hanging around the house watching all of the activity with the young ones. Oh, the young ones includes Maxwell, Macy and Kiki too. Even though Kiki is around a year old now she still is a young one and gets her wild thing going on too. Of course when they aren’t sleeping it off, Maxwell and Macy sure get their get up and go going full speed ahead.

Several of you asked about Maxwell and how he is doing so I’ll give you a brief update. You wouldn’t know anything was wrong with him to see him in action. Every once in a while after a super active play session, of which there are many, he will breath though his mouth briefly. Last Vet visit the Vet heard a heart murmur she hadn’t heard before and that coupled with his open mouth breathing lead to x-rays being taken. There is some odd scalloped shaping on his heart, thus the need for an ultrasound. He won’t have an ultrasound until he is 6 months old since his heart is still too small to show anything definitive at that age. That puts us sometime around the end of February.

Of course that delays his neuter day so Macy will have to do her spay day first. They are both going to the Vet tomorrow for their booster vaccines and if we get any more information we’ll let you know. We do thank all of you for the continued purrs and prayers for Maxwell, he really is a sweet guy.

Okay, that’s enough for today. Have a fun Monday and a terrific week, I’ll see you soon. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!

Glad to hear Maxwell is playing acting normal. We sure hope that whatever is going on with his heart is not serious, and who knows, maybe heals on it’s own. (Yes, we’re a bunch of optimistic pups.) XOXOX Xena, Lucy, Chia and Riley

We too are crossing our paws that little Maxwell has nothing serious. In our experience, vets tend to be fairly quick to diagnose cardiac problems that are not always there. So, a more informed opinion is always good.

That is a darling picture of Brian! We can certainly purr here till February, or beyond, for Maxwell to have good test results.

We are purring for Maxwell.
We didn’t know that Celestial Chuck had a heart murmur; when the vet said it was nothing to worry about, we just forgot about it.
Years later, of course, it became very impawtant.
Here’s hoping our history isn’t anything like Maxwell’s future.

We will continue to purr for Maxwell, and have our paws crossed that his heart will heal itself. Sometimes apparently it does, it happened with a puppy Mom almost got when she was a teenager. We don’t know if it’s the same thing in Maxell’s case but apparently in kittens and puppies once they have a chance to grow sometimes the problem mends itself. We are so glad he is able to enjoy playing with his siblings.

Mondays are always a good day to just hang around, Brian. We will continue to think good thoughts for Maxwell to be just fine. Thanks for the good thoughts for Misty. Like Maxwell, it is hard to tell there is anything wrong.

You’re looking great, Brian, and i appreciate the update. It sounds like the best course of action for Maxwell is enjoy him and have fun with him and hope when he gets big enough for all the tests it turns out to be a minor issue.

Poor Maxwell! I hope the vet can uncover his condition fast so proper treatment can be ordered. How do you tell a kitten you gotta take it easy? I’m sure it’s like telling a toddler to slow things down. It’s just not going to happen most of the time. He’s bound to tire out easily so that may slow him down without him even knowing it. Have a furtastic week, furriends!

Relatively good news all around—except when Maxie goes into heat. MOL! I seem to remember Glogirly saying when Waffles was young and did a lot of playing and running around, he would pant/mouth breath. I hope it’s normal in Maxie’s case too.
