Great News

Here I am ignoring my toys again. I moved my head just as Mom took the picture, so my face is blurry. The feather-butt bird was sent to me by Lorianna, along with a very nice card and chocolate eggs for Mom. Today was kind of strange. Mom got up way early for her and fed me first breakfast, but no second breakfast. We spent quite a bit of time together, then she put my PTU treats in the big PTU. I didn't want to go in at first, but the lure of the treats proved too strong. Mom pushed my back legs in and I knew what was coming. I turned around and tried to get out, but Mom was too fast with the door. Off I went to the vet. The good news was that I didn't get poked, prodded or stabbed with a needle, just weighed. We found out that I had lost 0.7 pounds since the poop puddles started, but I have gained 0.3 pounds back, despite my hunger strike to get my Fancy Feast and Friskies back. I was really glad to get home, but I still didn't get fed again.

Karen Jo: I didn't feed you second breakfast because I didn't want you to have to make a poop puddle in the PTU. I got some good news at the vet, too. I got permission to get the pro-biotic into you any way I could. I got some good ideas from our blogging friends and from the vet, too. That's why you didn't get fed until later this afternoon. I wanted you good and hungry for my first experiment.

Mom disappeared for a little while after she ate her lunch. She offered me some chicken, but I didn't want it. When she got home, she opened a little bottle that had something in it that smelled really good. She let me lick some off her finger and it was good. I wanted some more. She took my dish and put some of the stuff in it and I started eating it. I soon realized that she had put the pro-biotic in it and walked away. However, it was so good that I went back in just a little while and ate some more, then walked away again. But I couldn't resist. I went back again and finished it off. Well, almost. I left a tiny dab.

Karen Jo: That stuff is turkey baby food, Herman. I am so glad that you like it. I finally got a full dose of pro-biotic in you. I am to give you Benefiber, too. I got the kind that dissolves and is supposed to be tasteless. The vet said that although fiber makes people poop more, if a kitty doesn't get enough fiber, they can get diarrhea. I put it in your dinner and was glad to see that you ate some of it. If you don't finish it, I will give it to you in something yummier than your Stinky Goodness. I don't know if the pro-biotic can work so fast, or if the Pred is starting to take effect or both. All I know is that I got the pro-biotic into you about two this afternoon and at eleven tonight you made a much thicker poop puddle. Things are really looking up.

Mom's can be sneaky about meds! Keep it up and you will be better soon.

Amy and The House of Cats said...

Yay Herman! We are the same way - we can't resist the baby food - mom thinks is smells awful (worse then kitty food) but we love it, medicated or not! And, if you like Ham - they make ham baby food too! Mom said after that she knew why poopy babies smelled the way they did but we just adore it! And they have beef and chicken too - oh, it makes us want some just thinking about it! Keep up the good work Herman - we are so happy you are getting better and that you are eating your probiotic - we hope it keeps up!

Sending you lots of purrs and prayers for some normal pooping for you!!

Here's a secret Herman...Our mom takes Benefiber too.

Max said...

Doood, there's a lot of awesomeness here! My people take fiber and the Woman really likes that benefiber because she doesn't have to swallow a horsepill. And ya know what? :::whispers::: She has IBS and it helps, so maybe that'll help you, too... Don't tell anyone I told you that or she'll be embarrassed.

Hahahahaha like I care...

Tiger Lily said...
