Update on Tigger

Monday, March 27, 2017

Thank you for all of the well-wishes for Tigger. She's been crying for food, although yesterday she would eat almost nothing. Today, she's slowly increasing her food intake. Of course, now that she may be rounding the bend, Bear vomited last night and wouldn't eat today. In a way, that's probably a good sign, because it means that whatever's wrong with Tigger, it isn't likely to be something like lymphoma (one of the possible diagnoses). So off we all three went to the vet's today. The vet was somewhat pleased with Tigger's progress in that her appetite seems to be returning, although slowly.

Both kitties got treated with fluids and anti-nausea medications. I decided not to have any further tests at the moment, since Tigger seems to be improving. The vet thinks that the problem may have been caused by something they ate. Since they’re indoor kitties, and I don’t have any house plants (Bear would eat them), it must have been a bad can of food.

I’ll be keeping my eye on them over the next few days, and hope that things improve further. Tigger just informed me that she wanted something further to eat, so it looks as though we may be over the hump. Now I hope Bear soon follows suit. Fingers crossed!

Thanks for the support, SparkFriends! Tigger and Bear send thanks and head butts for all of your good wishes.

    I am so happy you had time to update us on the good news about Tigger's progress. I'm sorry to hear Bear is now under the weather but happy that it helps inform you of a possible cause. I hope the two of them get back to their usual selves soon!! Tony (and all of us) send our love and well wishes. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh I do hope you'll see improvements more and more. so far my Tort is fine, she chews on everything and anything in the house, she's into everything so can't leave things out. I'm gotten a terrible lingering cold for last week and a half, needing much sleep. A fever for 24 hours. I'm drinking water and juice, and catching up on all the sleep I missed in the last two years. In our society, no one understands me staying home and sleeping as needed. I don't have any reason to get out and spread this germ any farther. A third of our town seems to be coughing!

    Can cats get the flu? Maybe they just have something contagious.

    I'm so glad your fur babies are okay! It's awful when they're sick and they can't tell you what's wrong.

    So glad to hear Tigger is eating again. I hope Bear feels better soon too. Hugs to all of you. Sometimes you just wish you could wave a magic wand and make everything better right away. I hope tomorrow shows a lot more improvement!

    I've been waiting for an update and praying it would be a good one. I'm so glad it seems that the little girl is on her way back...now we just need Bear to follow in her footsteps.
    I'm so grateful it's looking up.

    Hugs and head bonks to you, Tigger and Bear from me and Lily...Lily sends very soft and gentle love bites...not always that gentle with me, but she means well.

    I have a cat too and know how stressful it is to see them sick and not know what is going on. I wish the best to both Tigger and Bear and for sure a quick recovery. Those events are costly too...
