She is slowing down, she is getting more vocal (she wont stop fucking meowing in the middle of the night) and she is losing too much weight, and she is drooling a bit!
So I took her to the vet last week and the first thing the cute vet (yes I still had time to appreciate a cute male and very young vet) said after listening to all the symptoms was that perhaps Tubby may be heading towards Kidney failure!
My hear sank to the bottom of my toes.
But the vet did some blood tests and the good news is that Tubby has a overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism). well its only marginally good news as an overactive thyroid can mask kidney failure. So Tubby is on 3 tablets that cant be crushed, daily. Its a bitch to hold her and administer the tablets. So far I count 4 scratches and claw 'holes' on my person. and its only day 3.
|evil syringe, loaded|
As the son is off to Koh Samui for his company's holiday soon, I will be on my own to administer the tablets so thank goodness I figured out a way to hold her down with minimal damage to her and me.
