Keiko's V-E-T visit
Well it's me, the Hooman at your service. We'll find out everything on Monday when Keiko's blood work comes in. They said it could be a bunch of things...all bad. Diabetes, thyroid problems or heart problems... She heard a heart murmur but also said that could be caused by stress which she was really scared after they shaved her neck to take blood and took her temp in a not so pleasant way then injected her w/fluids because she was dehydrated. It was weird because it moved under her skin like a water balloon. Poor kitty...also got a shot of penicillin for good measure. She seems like her normal meowy leg-rubbin self today but I still have not seen her eat more than 5 pieces of cat food or drink.
She was about 11 pounds at her vet visit in October, and yesterday she weighed in at 8 lbs.
I am worried because they said if it was a real heart murmur she's going to need an ultra-sound and all sorts of other tests and medicines. It's kind of scary and I"m really worried about my little baby cat :(
