~Good News~



My cat Charlie went for his ultrasound today on his bladder. He has been having urinary tract infections. Last Saturday when I had him at the vet, the vet said his bladder felt "unusual" and was afraid that maybe there was a tumor there. I just got good news....no tumor, no stones, no nothing....except his bladder has thickened. I can live with that if he can! :) He is an old cat...I am unsure of his exact age. He looked old when I rescued him in 1997...he was scraggly looking, and missing teeth. Anyway, 12 years later, here he still is....my fuzzy gray boy with his little mustache. I love him so much and I am so glad that he is ok. He is a tough guy...he has had 2 bladderstone surgeries, liver problems, he currently has mega-colon and thyroid disease, and his kidneys are only functioning at about 70%. We hydrate him at home, and he is on meds for the other ailments. I am so relieved...now I can breathe and go on with the rest of my day. :)

***The picture on the left is the day I rescued him...February 1997. The picture of him sleeping was taken in 2002***

Great news. It's so traumatic when pets are having health problems. But our last kitty had bladder, kidney and thyroid problems, too - and she lived to be nearly 24 years old! Hope Charlie keeps doing well.

I feel for you, and am so glad your sweetie is ok. My ancient old kitty is also having problems too and I am just happy to have her with me just one more day. :)

I am so pleased to hear it is good news. You deserve some happiness and good news at the moment, as you have had such a rough time.

That is great news! He's so adorable!

My husband says if Charlie lives to be 24 years old we will have to file for bankruptcy. :)

I know you are relieved! Some people don't understand how precious our furry friends our to us.
BTW - does Charlie have a MyCatSpace?

I feel for you and for Charlie. I'm so happy he does not have a tumor. He has been fortunate to have a loving home with you for 12 years after being a stray. May he enjoy many more happy years with you.

Missy said...

L. Diane: No, he doesn't but it's funny that you mention it because I always have wanted to do a Myspace page for him!

Missy said...

Diane: Thank you so much :) I hope that he is with us for a long time. I think Charlie's life would have been cut short had I not gotten him off of the streets.
