Wordless Wednesday: Dragonheart The Dragon

(Click to view a larger image. Credits for the scrapbook layout can be found here.)

More photos of me in my Hallowe'en Costume can be seen at the Halloween Costoom Contest blog. Please leave a message there if you like my costume! Thanks! :)

Update on me: The vet is pretty sure my problem is food-related. So we are going to try my new food for a week, and see how I'm doing. After a day of my new food, it seems to be helping a little bit. My litterbox trip was very stinky and soft this morning, but there was no blood. So that made my mom very happy, since I had lots of blood on my bum and the surface of my stool yesterday morning and at supper time. I'm not constipated at all (quite the opposite) so my problem isn't from straining. The new food is yummy, and doesn't upset my tummy, so hopefully it will work out.

Thanks again for all your purrs and prayers. I can't begin to tell you how much we (my humans and I) appreciate them. You are all such wonderful friends!

Mine mombean and I are still thinking what I could be ... she does have an idea, though.
It may take a few days for your system to get used to the new food, I did. But once we found the right stuff no more stinkies! And no more blood on my bum.

School has been crazy (as has my life) so I haven't been able to keep up until tonight. I'm sorry things have not gone as well as you hoped. I wanted to say last week, but didn't because I know you have gotten piles of good advice, that I have just gone through the same thing, with Turnip. In fact, I'm going to blog about it next COT.

For the past six months he has been ill; losing weight, always hungry. We wormed him. But the blood in the stool was getting worse and worse. Finally he went for blood tests (liver abnormality but why? no idea), and stayed at the kennel in the city for three weeks in order to be put on a special diet and meds without hiding in the house or have other cats steal it.

But it did no good, he came home healthier and got worse quickly. He wouldn't touch the prescription food at home. Another daughter and I were at the point of saying his happy times with us were at an end, because he was so sick.

But then, suddenly, my source of Wellness food (for all other cats) ran out. I had used it the past 12 months because Max Cat, which all cats had been weaned on, gave Mousie dandruff. But I couldn't get it, so went back to Max Cat. OVERNIGHT, Turnip got better.

He is PAST his old weight, he is frisky, interacting with us again, and the blood is GONE.

It was too easy yet so hard, and I can't even imagine what pain he went through. I didn't want to give you my story till you knew yours, but it sounds almost the same. You will find a food. Max Cat is half the price of Wellness, yet still is premium. Sometimes cheaper is better.

(Sorry this is so long).

Siani said...

You look wonderful in your Halloween costume, Dragonheart. I'm glad you're feeling better. Let's hope your new food fixes the problem once and for all. Happy WW!

Ruis said...

The new food is not making you a real dragon, huh? It is Photoshopped...?!

I am happy you are doing and poop better! ;)

Purrrs and hugs from Holland
