So, we still don't have a whole lot of answers. We thought it was looking like I had pancreatitis, but the latest tests were leading away from that. We're waiting on one more round of results and then our vet will probably refer us off to the university. I also had a test come back saying I was FIV+. I tested negative as a kitten and had an FIV vaccination, so we're hoping it is the leftover antibodies from the vaccine. When our vet was speaking to the lab they were a bit concerned that I tested positive years after the vaccine, so this weekend they are doing further testing to try and determine whether it was the antibodies or the virus dna that the test picked up. We do think it's very unlikely that I am actually FIV+. I have never been in a fight or received a fight injury, so the only way I could have been infected is from my catmum. For me to be positive now would have to mean that both me and Suey had false negatives on our test, which is unlikely according to what we've read. But we're still feeling the stress a little bit.
Our lovely friend Miss Huffle Mawson is celebrating her 1000th post, and is holding a commentathon. She is donating 25 cents to the RSPCA Vic for each comment, and is hoping to reach 1000 comments. Please go and visit her, and leave a comment. She is one of our very favourite ladycats, and if you haven't met her already we know you will like her a lot.
Have a great weekend :)
