2016 really was a busy year for us at Sleapy Cat Rescue we found forever homes for 58 adults and 93 kittens, please get your cats male and female neutered, kittens were literally coming out of the woodwork
Dave and Hobo have been living together in harmony for well over a month now, they get on famously, Hobo loves the heated igloo bed as you can see and Dave at the moment prefers his plush mat! although he too has a heated igloo, they both like their water fountain and Dave still likes to play with the water A match made in heaven, just love these boys.
Dave has a new friend, Hobo, we moved Hobo in with Dave as we were desperate for pen space, we tried them a couple of times before the permanent move and they get on really well. Hobo will end his days with us as he has Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Only problem is Dave likes Hobo’s dry more than his own haha. They now have a water fountain as well to encourage Dave to drink more and he loves it!
Dave is doing very well and the weather is improving slightly so he is enjoying his walks around the garden on his harness and lead. We thought we would treat Dave to a new Scratch Tower as he has always had 2nd hand ones, he’s such a lovely boy and he loves it, the swinging ball he broke off the 1st night!! But looked like he enjoyed himself. He also had a flying visit to the vets to get his nails cut as they were catching in his bedding, so laid back he just laid there and let the vet nurse clip away
Dave is doing really well on his prescription food and I took a urine sample in to check and all was fine apart from a faint trace of blood but they don’t know why. He is well in himself although he did have another fit last Thursday morning but it didn’t last long. He will still have the occasional fit but hopefully no more clusters of fits like he had in August 2015 We all love our special boy “Dave” he’s an absolute star
Dave went for x-rays and a scan last week to make sure nothing else was going on, all fine thank goodness (hence the shaved side and tummy) he is back on antibiotics as when he finished his last lot there was still blood and protein in his urine, he seems fine in himself and we’ll see what happens when I take a further urine sample in after he finishes this lot of antibiotics, bless him
Poor Dave, we went for a meal with friends on Saturday night and were back for 8pm as that’s what time Dave has his second lot of medication, I went down to his pen to find him spread eagled laying in saliva and urine and because of the tiled floor unable to get up as was so slippery, he looked at me meowing, I picked him up and gave him a cuddle and dried him off and gave him his medication then rang the vets, with his history they advised to give a double dose which I did and to get a urine sample. I took Dave’s sample in this morning and there was blood back in it so he has another urinary infection, he is on antibiotics again and they think it may be a side affect of the epilepsy medication he is on, he may always be prone to urinary infections The vet’s are looking into to see if anything can be done to reduce this. I will keep you all in the loop. Dave is quite comfortable at the moment so think we have got to it in time
Thank god our “Dave” is now back to normal, it took him 2 weeks but he’s ok, apparently when you are epileptic and you go down with anything it affects your brain waves and his urinary infection caused his cluster of fits, god bless him we all love him so much here and are more than relieved and pleased he’s now ok
Dave went in for bloods today and I took a urine sample as well, his urine only had a slight trace of blood so much better than last week but they decided his bloods should be sent off to the lab where his 1st ones were done, I am assured we should have a result tomorrow, Dave in himself is now back to normal thank god and hope the bloods now come back normal, will keep you all in the loop
Dave is 98% back to his normal self I am more than pleased to say he no longer is meowing and pacing and seems quite settled, will update Thursday after his blood test, keep everything crossed, he’s such a lovely lad and we all love him to bits <3
