Update on our “Dave”

IMG_5825 IMG_5819

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Our “Dave” has another infection :-(

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 ๐Ÿ™ ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Update on our “Dave” :-)

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Further Update on “Dave”

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

Update on Dave <3

Dave is 98% back to his normal self I am more than pleased to say ๐Ÿ™‚ 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

New Update on “Dave” :-)

Just got back from the vets with Dave heโ€™s had his IV catheter out and his 2nd bloods have come back, white cells are raised which could mean underlying infection but everything else normal, so to be on the safe side heโ€™s had a long lasting antibiotic and wormed as there was a suggestion in the results although I donโ€™t know why, he seems a lot calmer, still a little wobbly and meowing but 100% improvement, he has to go back next Thursday for more bloods to look at his white blood cells, looks like heโ€™s over the worst and thatโ€™s the main thing. When I got him home I sat with him in his pen for a while and he got on my lap and had a good fuss and tummy tickle and was purring away, now thatโ€™s the Dave we all know and love. Will keep you all posted ๐Ÿ™‚

Update on our special boy “Dave” :-(

Update on “Our Special Boy Dave” ย Dave is not very well, bless him, I went to give him his medicine at 8pm as usual last night and he was just coming out of a fit (he had not had one since February) he was in a bit of a state so left him to come completely out of it before giving him his meds, I sorted the rest of the rescues out and went back to his pen “Daves Gaff” he was sitting up with very wide eyes and drooling a lot, as I went to go in he started to go into another fit, a very bad one and was thrashing around in his pen where as when he normally has a fit he lays on his side and just paddles, I knew this was a serious fit by the amount of saliva on the floor, I rang our out of hours vet to warn them I was on my way with Dave and through a towel over him to get him in the cat carrier, we arrived at approx 8.45pm, I held Dave while the vet gave him a rectal diazapan, he still did not come out of the fit, so approx 10 mins later he had another, still he was not right so he had to stay in the vets last night, this morning was a little better but still wide eyed and still salivating, he is back with me now but have to keep a close eye on him, he is booked in Monday at the vets for full bloods but if he has another fit in between he will have to go straight back, he certainly isn’t his normal self, Dave is more like a dog than a cat, a very laid back gentle little boy. I will keep everyone updated, the picture of Dave trying to climb the tree was the last time he went out on his harness and lead and the one on his side was when he was in full fit the other two were taken at the vets this morning. Come on Dave you can get right lovely boy ๐Ÿ™‚

Our Dave goes to Nursery :-)

Stables Stables 1 Stables 2

Our Dave and I got invited to go to Stables Day Care Nursery in Wem on the 10th March, the children all sat in a circle and were amazed at Dave with his harness on, Dave went around all there feet smelling (each to his own haha) and rubbing against them, he really enjoyed it as I did and so did the children, they were all so well behaved for such a young age. Sorry no pictures at present but we are awaiting permission from parents. A great day had by all ๐Ÿ™‚ Sorry not brilliant pictures:-(

Dave is doing very well, he has had his yearly MOT and vaccinations and also had his nails clipped, he is still going around the garden when it’s not raining but this time of year as it’s so cold he spends most of his time in his heated sleeping area and in his heated igloo and who can blame him ๐Ÿ™‚ We have just had another rescue pen built and attached it to “Dave’s Gaff” so they have a shared safety area, there are 4 kittens in the new pen at the moment and Dave loves to see the other cats ๐Ÿ™‚

Dave has 2nd visit to School 7/4/14

Dave has been back to school today for the second time, they had invited people to tell the Year1 pupils at St Peters School Wem about there jobs, myself, Barbara and of course Dave went along to give a talk, I went in my uniform as I work part time at our local vets Bridgefield Vets in Wem as well as running the rescue and Barbara is one of my brilliant volunteers. All went very well and Dave loved the attention and fuss although I think he has put a bit of weight on over the winter and will have to get him a new harness as it only just did up!! The children were amazing, so good and well behaved, I think everyone had a great morning. Thank you St Peters Wem for inviting us ๐Ÿ™‚
