You is on a roll! Fangs for all the neat pictures!

Everybody who is claiming 'old'...I will give you the wisdom that my ni-chan imported to me:

"You are not old. The EARTH is old."

For some reason, that made me feel better (and not quite so old).

Bah. I've got more aches and pains than my Grandpa, who's almost 90. I get winded taking a flight of stairs, I fart more than I talk, I go to bed at 8:30-9:00 most nights, and even then I only sleep about 4 hours a night because I have to get up three times to pee.

Bah I say.

Hi everyone... just to restate; my thanks to Luthien's Tempest for giving me a month of TF. I can only assume it was because of this little gray sweetheart.

yfrog.com

This is Jenka and her big brother (the miniature saber-tooth panther taking up most of the shelf there) Maxim. In August, she came into heat, even though she'd been spayed. (The Iowa State Vet College confirmed that with a hormonal assay). I arranged with the vet that did the original spay to check for any remnants that may have been missed the first time. She went back into surgery in early September, but nothing was found.

A couple weeks later she started acting off. Not eating as much, not drinking as much, hunched up under shelves or in corners, and after a couple of days I took her back to ISU for a checkup. They found an abdomen full of fluid, some white cells, some red cells, and a lot of bacteria. Panic mode kicked in and we sprung for surgery to drain the fluid and find the source of the infection. No definitive source was found and the vets told us it was probably FIP. I'd never heard of it, my wife had never heard of it, but MadAnimalScientist was with us, and she had, and she started shaking and crying. That was on Monday. She's been in the intensive care unit ever since.

They said it's incurable, terminal, and if she has it then the most we can do is give her a couple more months of comfort assuming we pumped her full of stuff to hold the sickness back.

The biopsy results got back in late last night, just as the lab staff was leaving, but the surgeon told us that it was "inconclusive" for FIP, and that she'd be in a meeting this morning to go over it with the rest of the staff. We're hoping that maybe it's just a massive inflammation from the exploratory that happened with the second spay. Serious, but not terminal. But I'm a little scared to get my hopes up.

Maxim's been wandering around the house since Monday afternoon, looking for his little sister and mewing and trilling up a storm as he tries to coax her out. Closet doors especially, since she loves to get in and hide among all the clothes and sleep in the hangers. (It's a kitty hammock to her)

She's usually a ball of fuzz and purrs, and even though she's only 8 pounds (her brother's pushing 16, and there isn't much fat on him) she owns his ass. This summer, she saw a chipmunk outside and managed to put a Jenka-sized hole through the screen door from a standing start at a range of six inches. The problem with that is that she doesn't photograph nearly as well as her brother, since she's usually watching out the window with her back to us or a little blur around the house.

I'm hoping things will turn out on the side of good, but I'm a little scared to hope at the moment. Right now we're waiting on the phone call from the vet with the results. Wish us luck.

The best explanation of FIP I've found is "It's akin to a human cold mutating overnight into ebola." It's when a slightly irritating virus suddenly mutates into something that totally takes over the immune system for its own use. It's a bit of a mystery, but one of the mutation triggers seems to be stress, so I'm kicking myself so hard for taking her in for the re-spay. We adopted her in January, and she's only 13 months old.

*UPDATE* Some of the results came back and they're even more confusing. The fluid was loaded with bacteria, but later tests weren't. FIP produces nodules on all the internal organs from the virus spreading, but while she has nodules, they're only on her intestines. No neurological or eye trouble. No balance issues. No obvious symptoms beyond the peritonitis, but no source for the peritonitis, and potential contamination of the first fluid sample, so it's acting like the viral version, but not the viral version... She comes home Saturday afternoon, and she still has a feeding tube in her. We'll be trying to get her to eat and drink, but so far no luck.

Haruko_, Fang Q so very much for the pic of Kiki, co-holder of Greatest Cat Ever title. Co-holder with late loved Cheeky the Brit cat we adopted in W Berlin, who was Greatest Cat Ever to let us live with her, after her King's Own Scottish Borderers family in the service of Her Majesty Elizabeth II R, also helping occupy W Berlin Back Then, couldn't afford to take her back to UK & pay for 6 months' quarantine. Oh yeah, the French helped some with the Occupation too, getting on for 40 years after WW2 until the Wall finally came down.

Read your profile too, sorry to hear about Mo too. But your cat names.... Sammer? We've got Sam, Sammer, Sammie, Sammerpie (lotsa variations on the name), he's our 18 year old sleeps a lot cat! Weasel? My sweetie for 17 years was Weasel! She was my bed buddy, my belly rub cat, mouser extraordinaire! She's the cat I miss the most of all my buddies. Cleo? My Cleo would sneak up behind me and poke me in the shoulder when I wasn't giving her enough attention! Winslow was my neighbor's cat, I swear he spent as much time at our house as he did at theirs! Lori (one of his humans) told me that Cleo, who never went in their cat door, let herself in the day Wins passed and sat with her for hours and hours...

And as for the Fark O.F.F. Club, I'm guessing 55 works! Am I in?

I've got a few from earlier this week, I wish my cats would sit still long enough to get good pictures of them. I can take great landscapes but cats tend to move too fast for me!

Cat fight on Nick (aka The Cat Whisperer). Desi loves his shoulders (Nick's 6'6" so the view is great up there) and Nick can flip almost any cat in his arms, this time it's Cisco. Cisc thought that Desi's tail was a most attractive target!

40. But 1008 in stress years. By the way Caturdayers, as of yesterday, Mrs. BBBB is home, and home for good. So after close to four months of ups and downs, and then outright insanity, she rolls into the house for good. Spent the first night in her own bed with Fatty Waffles curled up with her and not moving. Tried to crawl in around 10 last night, but she refused to move and hissed at me, which she never does, so I gave up and slept on the couch. Mrs. BBBB's response to finding me on the couch? "Best night of sleep I've had in a long time." Yep, everything is back to normal. Now to let the air out of her tires and leave her in the yard for a few hours.


LOL! At first I thought you meant that Mrs. BBBB hissed at you when you tried to get into bed! Glad to hear she is finally home, and feeling feisty!

BTW, I'm part of the double-nickel club myself...for two more months or so....

...and...a cat...

syzygy whizz: The Green Intern: Hi everyone... just to restate; my thanks to Luthien's Tempest for giving me a month of TF. I can only assume it was because of this little gray sweetheart.

*snip* Pretty Jenka*

All best wishes, Green Intern. Wish I had some fool-proof advice for you...
All I gots is a hug...{{{TGI}}}


I'm sure we all send hugs, and well wishes.
having a sick furbaby is so hard
they can't tell you what hurts...
we hurt for/with them
do your best, and know you can come here
anytime to unload or ask questions
we may not have all the answers, but we will
listen, and we do care.
