Guess What Mom Did
Karen Jo: If I give you two shots a day you don't have to take your Pred anymore.
Brody: Hmmm. I guess two little shots are better than that awful Pred being shoved down my throat and making me cough. I don't know why I have to go through all this stuff. I fell a little bit better every day. This morning I almost played with Cissy. She was playing with my tail and I kept twitching it for her. Then she pounced me big time. I rolled over on my back and grabbed her with my forepaws and bunny kicked her before I gave her the airplane ears and hissed and growled at her to make her leave me alone. I swatted a toy as I went by. I am almost ready to play again.
Karen Jo: I'm glad to hear it. Brody is sicker than he thinks he is. He is a little perkier every day, but he has FIP. There is a new medicine for FIP, Polyprenyl Immuno, and he is getting it every three days. He is also getting his Amoxydrops until he finished the course. The fluids are building up in his chest again, so he is getting injectable Furosemide and injectable Dex for that. He goes back to the vet on Thursday to see how he is doing. The vet told me that she knew a cat who lasted six months on this series of meds.
Karen Jo: I had promised to find a home for this kitten last month because I had a prospect. She didn't meet our standards, so I took the kitten myself. I think I better make this one the last one I take in. The house is full.
Itty Bitty No Name Kitty: The lady who brought me here is trying our names for me: Alison, Tabitha or Nanette. What do you think? I have a very short story because I am only two months old. I was caught in the Santa Fe TNR program last month and fixed. Because I was so young, I was considered adoptable until I tested positive for FeLV.
Karen Jo: The shelter contacted Felines & Friends Santa Fe and they contacted me. Now she is in the safe room, mostly hiding in the closet. She does come out in the night to eat and when I went in to feed her tonight she was up in the window looking outside. She leaped down and ran back to the closet when I opened the door, but at least she is exploring.
