Mom's A Little Worried
She's worried because I've lost a lot more weight. Yesterday at the V-E-T my weight had dropped to 14.25 pounds; 12 ounces in just a week. Dr. C is concerned too and he and Mom talked about it. Mom knows I'm hungry, because I'm always telling her. She just doesn't understand that I want something other than what she's giving Me. We've eaten Goodlife Recipe ever since the gluten scare, but I'm tired of THE same old brand.
Dr. C told her to start giving me the pepcid every day instead of every other day and feed Me anything I want, even baby food. Baby food isn't usually recommended as a staple for Cats because it doesn't contain enough an amino acid that is important for Cats. Mom usually only uses it to feed Me my crushed L-lysine, and I love baby food, especially ham. Dr. C said some nutrition is better than nothing, so Mom doubled up on that last night. She also recently discovered Feline Greenies and I absolutely love those In fact, that's what I'm holding out for. But Dr. C said too many kitty treats can cause diarrhea.
So Mom went shopping yesterday and came back with an armload of different canned and dried foods. I suspect we're going to be doing a lot of taste testing over the next several days. I've already decided that the only kibbles I want is Purina's Kit & Kaboodle. Mom's not real happy about that because of the ingredients, but since I'm the one who's sick, I win. Usually Mom is of the organic and all-natural persuasion, but she also believes that something is better than nothing.
On the other hand, Dr. C is pleased with my blood counts. They are holding steady within normal limits. I don't care about that and I don't like getting the needle stick. But he thinks basically I'm doing good and that means only a few more weeks of this round of chemo.
