Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: It has been over two weeks since I got sick and I would like to start by thanking all of you for your continued purrs and crossed paws. They bring great comfort both to me and to #1 (she has been a complete basket case...).

So, what is the latest? Well, it is increasingly looking like my heart is not functioning quite as it should. I have started taking both diuretics (Furosemide) and a heart support medication (Benazepril). At the moment, we are still working on adjusting the dosage of the Furosemide, and the Benazepril will take some time to kick in, but I do seem better overall. I am still getting coughing episodes but outside of these, I am pretty much acting like a healthy cat, enjoying being brushed and asking #1 to play with the laser pointer!


And even giving #1 the occasional bitey!


But she still gives me scritches!


The weather has been nice and I have really been enjoying the sunpuddles:


I occasionally turn on the lasers if the boys need to be kept in check:


I am still Queen after all!

The rest of the time, I look angelic...

 
We don't know if things will ever be quite the same again, but I know I am in good hands between #1 and Dr. C.

Yes, you are in good hands, Tama-Chan! I'm still pulling for you, and I'm glad you are on the right medications for your heart. You absolutely do look like an angel in the last photo! I'm glad you are able to enjoy the sun puddles. The vitamin D is good for you! You seem like you're much better. All the photos show you interacting with #1, as usual. I'm so glad to see you doing well. Be sure to tell all the others to have a wonderful Tama-Chan Tuesday!
