Tama-Chan Tuesday


Tama-Chan: Today is an important day for me because #1 and I are going for a follow-up visit to Dr. C's. It has been three weeks since my last visit and I feel and look good, but Dr. C wants to check me out before making decisions on long-term treatment, so may I ask you to cross paws for me? We will update later, after we get back home.

Despite #1's usual busy-ness, things have been fairly quiet here. The days are short as it's not really light until 9am and gets dark by 5pm. We enjoy the sunpuddles when we get them although they have become increasingly rare ans fickle.

Here is a shot of me last week, supervising #1 as she got things ready for Mr. G before heading off to Paris:


Here I am, making the Christmas tree look even lovelier!


 
You know that when I was a tiny little girl, I actually climbed the Christmas tree?! Look! I have proof!


And finally, here I am, lying in a nice sunpuddle:


VET VISIT UPDATE: #1 here. We are just back from the vet's. Dr C was delighted with Tama's progress and her current state. She said that Tama has responded very well to the medication and looks wonderful. We will continue to slowly reduce the diuretic, as the heart support Benazepryl starts to kick in properly (it apparently takes 1-2 months). Needless to say, I am just so pleased!

Tama, we are very glad to hear that your vet visit went well! It is great that you can continue to slowly reduce the diuretic. You also look lovely posing with the Christmas tree!

That is wonderful news that you had a good vet visit, Tama. You look cute in the Christmas tree. I used to climb ours also. The only time Eric tried to climb it, he pulled the lot down and never tried again.

I'm so glad to hear the check up with Dr.C went well. Yeah! I love the picture of you climbing up the Christmas tree, Tama-Chan! Also, you do make the Christmas tree look more decorative standing in front of it. It seems Mr.G will be taking care of you all while #1 is in Paris. You're in good hands. It's a great day for Tama-Chan Tuesday!
