Tama-Chan: Things are gradually getting back to normal at Poupounette Central, and I thought it was time for me to give you a little update on how I am doing. All the results from the various tests came back whilst #1 was in Japan, and they were negative for everything, including cancer. The conclusion is that I am suffering from some variant of feline eosinophilic disease, caused either by a parasite or over-sensitivity to something (but we don't know what). The standard treatment for this is cortizone and so I am now on a relatively high dose which will be halved after five days and then halved again after another five days, with the aim of giving the lowest possible dosage and eventually stopping altogether. The good news is that #1 has not heard me cough since Saturday. We are crossing all paws that I can be weaned off the Prednisone after a while and will go back to being a happy, healthy kitty.
In the meantime, I am enjoying life:
Watching out for a certain Blue Boy...
Doing a bit of dangling:
And enjoying the cat run. The weather is fabulous at the moment, and #1 put a basket out i the run, with a comfy cushion, just for me!
Thank you, Dear Friends, for all your support when I was going through all those vet visits and medications.
