Claws, Fangs and Trots

Cinders has put on a little wee bit of weight. It was confirmed at her third blood test, weigh in and evaluation last week.

This reminds EJ of a very slim lady wearing a coat with fur collar showing off her slim neck looking relaxed crossing her limbs.

This is what you get after being shaved for the third time at the same area.

She has started eating kibbles though she mostly consume wet food now. Next to her is 'fatty' Kenggy gorging in.

Cinders seems happier now and has started trotting!

With that little increase in weight, her meds dosage increased which means additional pills to be swallowed. With both Cinders' and Tommy's numerous pills combined to be shoved down their throats daily, EJ's hands take the beating of being accidently bitten. Index finger holding the pill take the brunt of being bitten at the same spot all the time.

Unfortunately Tommy didn't fare as well as Cinders. He lost weight and has no appetite. His favourite vet gave him appetite stimulant pills. His second blood test results will be known early next week.

Hurrah for Cinders! Every ounce counts.

We'll keep purring for her and Tommy; and EJ's fingers, too!

Oh, Cinders is a darling. I'm glad she's feeling better. I sure hope Tommy starts eating again soon.
Love and prayers,

Good for Cinders and I do hope Tommy gets well soon too. As for the pill popping, well... good luck in that too.Will they take it better if crushed and mixed with food?
