Update on Us!

Hello all!

Sorry we haven't been posting or visiting friends recently.  We've been very busy the past couple of weeks, making sure Merlin was okay, continuing to unpack, and "helping" our mom apply for jobs and attend her job interviews!

Our absolutely best news is that Merlin is back to being his usual self!  It appears that he must have had a bad day and took a few days to recover, because now you would, once again, never know he has cancer.

Devi's eosinophilic granuloma is healing, so we will be trying to wean her off of steroids very soon, once again.  Hopefully this time the lesions won't come back when we start decreasing the dosage.

Dragonheart's gum hyperplasia is not bothering him at all.  He is being bad, though, and not taking his preventative puffer for his steroid like a good boy in the mornings, so he's been having a couple of asthma attacks that needed his rescue inhaler.  Silly boy should just take the inhaled steroid like he should - when he gets his full dose of 7-10 breaths with his Aerokat and Flovent medicine.

Our most exciting news, however, is that our future sister has been born!  A little tortie Sphynx!  The breeder still hasn't shared photos with us yet, as she's not yet two weeks old, and the breeder doesn't like sharing photos of kittens until they are passed the two week "hump."  Still, we can't help getting excited!  That means we will get a little tortie sister in March!  Very exciting!



So that's our news for now.  We should be back to regularly visiting and commenting later this week! As always, thank you for your purrs, prayers, and positive thoughts!

What mostly great news. I think the power of the paw helped Merlin. I can't wait to see your future sisfur(less).

That is wonderful news all round. Merlin - you are awesome. And Devi you have been sooo good with that foods. Dragonheart - we don't like the sound of that inhaler but asthma attacks are worse so get puffing. Now the news of a little sister puts paws in our ears as Ă„iti squees; she loves little nekkids. But dudes, this is a TORTIE. You think Devi is a toy hog, this little girlie is going to be full of tortitude. We remember what happened when the oh so innocent Mesi arrived here..... She's a little tyrant with melty eyes. Good luck!!!!
