Waiting on Wednesday

Da Beebs: This morning, I am going to Dr. C's along with my sister Sei-Chan. In my case, I am just going for my annual check-up and shots, and probably to be admired by Dr. C who always tells #1 that I am perfect (who knew?). As you already know, Sei-Chan is going in for a blood test so we can ascertain whether there is something serious behind her increased drinking and peeing. We are all crossing our paws for her.

Sei-Chan was put in solitary yesterday afternoon. #1 saw her in the guest bathroom, which she had already set up with everything needed (beddies, litterbox, food and water, and carrier), and shut the door. She left her food until the evening and then took that away too. Sei-Chan was not amused...

We should get the test results whilst we're there as our vet had the analysis equipment on-site. We will update the blog after we get back, but would appreciate a few crossed paws in the meantime.

UPDATE: We have just returned from the vet. Da Beebs got a clean bill of health. As for Sei-Chan, she is in the very early stages of renal insufficiency. Dr. C hopes that, since we caught it this early, treatment will be very effective and Sei-Chan can thrive for many years. More details tomorrow.


  1. We are sending good vibes for Sei to have a good result.
    Da Beebs too.
    Purrs Georgia and Julie,
    Treasure and JJ

  2. I'm sending purrs to Sei and will be looking for the test results.

  3. Paws crossed and purring! Hope you two get some extra treats for your troubles today...

  4. Sending lots of positive Frenchie vibes

    Lily & Edward

  5. We hope too that this is early enough for some good remedies to make her better. Good eyes, #1 - you know your furries well. All paws crossed for Sei-Chan.

  6. We will send many purrs for Sei-Chan and hope the vet will find the best treatment for her.
    Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

  7. glad you caught it early....there are so many things they can do for cats now that we know Sei-Chan has many more good years

  8. It's really great to know that Sei-Chan's renal insuffiency is caught early! Sei-Chan's prognosis is good;however, I will still pray for her. It's also good that Da Beebs has a clean bill of health! #1 has done a good job observing the felines carefully. Some people may not even notice such changes in their pets. All in all, it's turned out to be a good day! Prayers for Sei-Chan.

  9. We are happy to hear that Da Beebs is in good health. We are sorry to hear about Sei-Chain's renal insufficiency, but glad that it was caught in the early stages. We will purr and purray for her. As a side note, we are always admired a great deal when we go to the vet's! Only Merlin seems to love the attention, though.

  10. I am glad Da Beebs got a good report. I am sorry that Sei-Chan has early renal deficiency but glad it was caught early.

  11. Sorry I'm late so I'll drop off some post-visit purrs. We're sure you caught that renal thing early and now you know how to proceed.

  12. Oh Sei!
    Mes purraying hard! Catching things early is always good!
    If yous needs anything grrl furrend, mes gots your back and will bes there tout suite!

  13. We will keep our paws crossed for Sei-Chan that you can take the necessary steps to slow down the renal failure.

  14. Coucou Sei,
    Ce n'est pas drole du tout ce que l'on t'a fait.
    Etre enfermée comme ça et sans manger en plus.
    Heureusement que pour ma prise de sang c'est plus facile. En général je ne mange pas le matin. Et mes rendez vous sont toujours vers 15H15.
    J'espère que tu vas te remettre de tout ce stress.

  15. Beebs dood, you sure did look good riding shotgun - ah, err, tomorrow... (we're reading backwards can you tell?)
