My Update

Hi everybuddy.
I spent a very happy weekend hopped up on some special pain killers. I thought I spent some time riding a unicorn, but I'm not sure if that actually happened.

We have also been able to rule some things out. My diabetes test was negative. My toxoplasmosis screen was also negative. I also got my results back from my Upper Respiratory Disease PCR swab, which showed I was negative for Chlamydophila felis, Calicivirus, Herpesvirus, Bordetella bronchisepta, Mycoplasma felis and H1N1 Influenza Virus (yep, they tested me for Swine Flu!).

We have definately ruled out my lungs as the source of the bloody fluid, as I did a bloody spew the other day with lots of grass in it (sorry if that was indelicate).

I am being a super awesome very good boy at taking my antibiotics and anti-acidic tablets. Today I went back to the vet for another check (after hiding under the bed- mum realised afterwards that she wears the same pair of old jeans whenever she goes to the vet, and I figured that out!). She stole some of my bloods to run another blood panel and see what my levels are like. Except she chose the Old Cat profile to run. I am only four and a half! Mum says it just means that they do a wider screening, but I was still unimpressed.

We still have a long list of things we're checking for, but we're getting closer to an answer.

I do want to have a little brag though, I was a super awesome very good boy for the vet when she was taking my bloods. Not a single little hiss of rowl or paw swat. My little brother could learn a thing or 2000 from me, that's for sure!

I think that is the most words I have ever written :)
Love Fui.

Well, you've certainly ruled a lot of things OUT, which is good. Continued purrs from us that they find what this is and it's easily treatable!

Random Felines said...

We hope they figure this out soon. At least they are ruling some things out.....

Cory said...

You are such a good boy Fui...and a smart one too! You figured out the signal from your mom that you are goign to the v-e-t! At least they are ruling out all sorts of stuff...but we will purr that they find out what it IS! We are all purring for you...especially Ginger.

I had to have blood stolen from me on Saturday because I go in for dental work on Thursday. V-e-ts are no fun.

All of those things are great r/o's - so now - a geezer kitty lab panel? I think it's smart as it does look at other possibilities.
I am impressed at your manners. I am the same way. Very quiet and pretty polite. Puff and Powder...not so much.

Fui, we're glad you are feeling OK with the meds...and we hope the next round of tests will solve your sore tummy mystery!
A UNICORN?

elle said...

Glad to hear that so many things have been ruled out so far! Hoping the new blood tests will bring good (or better) news.

Sparkle said...

Hmph, that IS kind of insulting, having to get a senior workup at your age, but I suppose it's necessary! It sounds to me like they are having to figure out what's wrong with you by ruling out everything else! I hope some answers come through soon. Purrs to you, Fui!

Hi Fui,

That's a lot of bad things you don't have which is very good. So, maybe only little things that are easy to fix are left. And they sort you out soon. Then you can put the bitey on the vet. :-)

Purrs,

Lizzie & 3 kitties

Faye said...

Fui....well, now we know what is NOT wrong with you. Hope they can find out what it is, so you can be completly better. Continuing to send purrs and prayers from South Lousiana.

Sam and Zorro said...

Dear Fui,
fingers crossed it's just a bug or something and soon you will be your regular self again! It's good you didn't have any of those skeery sounding things. and that you're not going to turn into a cat with a snout and a curly tail - phew...
Fingers crossed it all ends calmly and well for you real soon. You know, after it's ll over, your mum could put 1/8 of a tsp of bicarb soda in your food once a day for a week and then go down to say three times a week and that helps keep you alkaline, too. and she could take it, too, just like our mum is supposed to...

Mr Puddy said...

Fui, You are doing better and better, I send lots of purrs for you and paws crossed for all good in the next step
Hugs and Purrs
