A Good Report Card

So, Skootch got a good report card. His thyroid, kidney and liver levels are great! He's anemic, but not alarmingly so. He has the same heart murmur he has always had.I have actually been coaxing him out for playtime with the youngsters, and THAT is nice.

Back from the V-E-T

So, we are home from the vet and awaiting blood test results. Dr. Jeff poked and prodded and checked out mouth and ears and didn't seem too concerned, but we did a blood + urine test to see if anything is going on. Skootch was a very good kitty. When we got home he was very hungry, so I gave him some extra treats. The kids took one whiff of him and jumped back in disgust.

I am concerned about Skootch. I'm pretty sure he has renal problems - the pee levels in the litter boxes indicate this - and he's been trying to yak up something to no avail. Yesterday his yak was pink, which alarmed me, so we are going to the vet first thing Monday morning (tomorrow). Also, Louie has been snuggling with him all day on the bed, which is very unusual (usually Louie is more likely to pick on him!). Skootch is an elder cat, and has always been somewhat frail. We would appreciate some extra purrs.
