Abbey Speaks



Abbey, September 2016


Hi, eberypawdy! It’s me, Abbey. Thank you for thinking of me and praying for me. 

I am doing well overall. I have thrown up 4 times within the last 4 weeks (Mama calls them episodes). One of those may have been the work of Natasha or Connor, but none of us are talking about it. Even if it’s 4 for me, that’s a lot better than what was going on before.

I don’t make it easy for Mama and Dad to give me the Cerenia, but Mama is (finally) getting faster at pushing the pill in with that stick thing (pet piller), so at least I don’t have to be upset too long.

I like the venison food pretty well. I like the I/D food too. Mama put away the Blue Buffalo to see if we would be OK with that. Dad weighed me a couple weeks ago, and I weighed 12.7 pounds. Mama weighed me Saturday, and I still weighed 12.7 pounds. At the vet on Jan. 9, I weighed 12.11 pounds. 

Mama sure is keeping her eye on me. She looks worried. I try to show her I’m OK by running around and playing. And wrestling with Connor. But Mama is a worrier. She is going to talk with the vet to see if she wants to do more tests and to see if she wants me to stay on the Cerenia.

We sure have missed you. I told Mama I wanted to talk with you all and make sure you didn’t forget us. We’ve got things to talk about and stories to tell you! We hope you all have been well.

See you on Wednesday!

  2. Mama will always be a worrier. that's what they do. But I'm so glad things are going well with Team Abbey. A very big relief. (Tina, a friend has just started a blog about her cat's story and treatment with a holistic vet. She's new in the neighborhood -- check her out! https://missboo2012.blogspot.com/ (I think the story will be an interesting one as it unfolds and there may be some things that help Abbey, or not.) So far she just has one post up.

  3. Glad to hear from you, Abbey! Mama's worry; that's their job, and it's written in the contract. She only wants to very best for you, Abbey! Reduced yakking is a good thing, despite which cat was the yakker.

  4. Well, we'd NEVER forget you, but it's great to hear from you, Abbey! We're glad that you're running around playing - that's always a good sign! And eating. And doing the pill thing. Sorry you have to deal with that, but something's sure helping!
    Yours sincerely,
    Margaret Thatcher

  7. We're glad you're doing okay, Abbey. Tell your mom that cerenia is known to have a bad taste and it might be better to put your pill in a small gelcap and give it to you that way so you don't have to taste it. :) Keep eating your foods.
