Kali’s Vet Visit

Mom was rather nonchalant this morning, which means she’s up to something.  I was keeping an eye open for any quick activity on her part….just in case she decided it was time I got meds cause my life was too happy.  Then it happened…Kali was picked up and thrown in her carrier.  Alright. alright, gently put into the carrier.  They all jumped in the Toyota, except for Kali who was singin’ the blues.  Take it away Kali.                                                              smsm KaliWe arrived at the vet’s stinky house and were taken into the office immediately.  My leg seemed to feel better almost instantly and I wanted off the cold steel table.  I hid and tried to pretend I was home.  Oh dear, home doesn’t ever stink like this place.                                                                       ackalivetDoes this pose look like you’ve seen it before?  This is my standard pose at the vets so nothing varies much.

Dr. V sauntered into the office and stated I was beautiful….maybe she’s not so bad after all.  She stroked me and then felt all up my front legs.  She was getting a little rude.  We just met!  She then put me on the floor and yelled asked me to walk.  I hobbled like at home.  She was quite concerned as was mom.  They decided to torture me for hours.  That’s what it felt like but really Dr. V did an x-ray of each leg.  Both legs showed a fair bit of arthritis in the shoulders and paws.  The worst arthritis was in my elbows which were inflamed and quite swollen.   I was at a loss for mew’s.  Horrified even!  Does this mean I’ll no longer pad about like a model?  I started to feel glum.  This is when Dr. V said I should be on liquid morphine for three days to control the inflammation and bring the swelling down.  They might just as well have been barking…I understood nothing.  Then Dr. V told mom and dad they had to treat me like a princess on a velvet pillow for the next few days.  I understood that.  What a marvelous vet….I like her.  No other vet has ever said that before. 

When we got home I told Shoko what the vet said and she didn’t believe me.  You’ll see Shoko.                                                                            aakaliupcloseI had some yucky liquid in my mouth after supper and I am very sleepy, but my elbow is ok….not great but ok.  Really, I don’t care if I have an elbow about now.  I’m going to dream about the new tiara mom got for me.                                                               aaakalitiara

Kali’s Adventure

acstHi ya friends.  I sit atop the love seat back to tell you about today’s post.  I feel so tall sitting here and looking right in your face.

Mom was getting quite worried about Kali over the last 10 days.  Kali was lethargic, didn’t eat much, drank little and slept in the condo most of the day then coming to bed and continuing to sleep at night.  She would cry out in her sleep at night and mom would get up and pet her, all the time talking about fun things that Kali would like.

So guess what happened? That’s right, Kali won the award for sleeping more than any other cat in our vicinity.  MOL  Sorry mom, I couldn’t help but kid around.   On a more serious note, Kali had an appointment with the vet.  Off she went.  I said I’d wait here, no need for me to tag along, thank you very much.                                                                       ackalivetDr. Kalyn said Kali’s weight and hydration levels were good and she recommended mom give her Meticam for 3 days in a row to see if it lessened the pain in her arthritic joints.  Mom and dad were giving her Meticam but only when Kali was having difficulty walking.  Then the three of them headed back home.  Mom and dad took turns giving Kali her liquid oral med for the three days.  Was there a difference?  You bet your booties there was!!  Kali was racing around the hall on the second day and playing with toys, even though her paw was very sore before, now she was hitting toys with the paw.                                                                             akp                    Simon’s Cat hearts had to run from the paw.                                                                     akp2Sorry about the picture quality friends but in the first picture Kali”s paws were movin’ pretty fast.  I don’t know what happened in the second photo….her paw is clear as a bell but her face’s all fuzzy.  Her face wasn’t movin’ all that fast.  Go figure!

Have a great day and may all your mice be furless….nothing worse than furs up the nose when one is hard at play.                                                            Kali and Shoks
