Back Home Again

Still me, Myst, here. Muddy is back. He was not eating at the vet, but as soon as he got his bearings at home, he went to his food dish and ate! It was a good sign. He is not so lethargic, either, but is walking around meowing for a brushing and wanting attention. He has to take 8 pills a day, one is an appetite enhancer that is making him anxious, but it helps him to want to eat. He has a 6-inch line of stitches on his tummy but he seems to be getting to the litter box ok and was able to jump on the bed after several tries. I feel a little less sad cause he purrs when my humans pet him.

Here is a picture that Terry just now took of him. While Dandelion and I sniff him a lot, nobody has been too aggressive towards him though Dandelion is not completely sure so the parents supervise their visits for now and do not leave them alone yet.

They cancelled their Thanksgiving trip out of town and will be staying around here. Yay, cause I hate when they leave. I follow Terry around all day long and I get too lonely when she is not here, so lonely that I don't eat, either.

You have no idea how glad that I am to hear this. I notice Muddy, that your eyes seem very bright. To me this seems like a very good sign that you are feeling better. I hope you get 100% better ASAP.

I'm glad Muddy's home now, Myst. I think being in a familiar place - with all those familiar smells, too - will improve his mood. It seems to be having a good effect already.

I hope Muddy doesn't have to take the appetite pills for too long. I'm remembering now that I gave them to my kitty, Maxwell, for a while just before he left me (3 years ago this month). They made him cry - really loud - in the middle of the night. I wasn't sure exactly what was happening except that I knew they were bothering him, because he didn't do that when he wasn't taking them. Hearing you talk about them making Muddy anxious, now I know what the problem was. I've had anxiety myself, and it's an awful feeling. But if Muddy keeps eating then that will be a pill or two less to give him, and he should be calmer too. (BTW - Maxwell lived to be almost 18. I wish the same long life for Muddy and you; I know Dandelion's already there!)

Love and Happy Thanksgiving from Denver,
Peggy

Myst - thanks for update... I'm glad Muddy is home and eating. I've had to take an appetite stimulant before and it certainly works. I'll be purring for you and your family. Enjoy your Thanksgiving together...

Happy thanksgiving from us here in England, we are glad to hear you will get to spend it with your human family (Maybe the smell of turkey will perk up that appetite!).
