The vet finally called Mama today with my blood test results. I had my teefies cleaned last week & they did a blood workup on me & Mama also asked them to do a full Thyroid Panel too.
I guess I couldn't let Snickers have something that I didn't, I now have Hypothyroidism too!
So I started taking Soloxine today, just like Snickers. But I'm starting on a lower dose and then I get my blood rechecked in one month to see how things are going with the thyroid. I'm now seven years old and Mama thinks it started last winter possibly. She had wondered about my thyroid cause I gained a few pounds last winter & she hasn't been able to get the weight off of me yet. I even gained 1/2 pound. I also like to nap more & don't like to get up in the morning, I'd rather sleep in, hehehe. Mama also thought that my hair was becoming a bit brittle which is another sign. So Snickers gets pink pills twice per day & I now get yellow pills twice per day. Does that mean we get more goodies??? NOT! Mama pokes the pills down our throat. We really don't mind her doing it and it takes less than one second. I'm sure glad Mama had my thyroid checked.
Our pal Clover told us today that I Butchy made the honorary mentions in the PetSmart Halloween Costume Contest & so did our pal Ruby Bleu!! They had our photos up on their web site. Congratulations Ruby!!
The mouse hunt still continues. We have captured 4 mice total now. One in the bucket & 3 in mouse traps. Those darn wild cats sure haven't been doing their job around here. Especially the black & white one that hangs around here night & day. Each time we look out the windows or go outside, the darn cat is out there. Wonder what it's been eating cause it sure hasn't been the mice. And look who's still on Mouse Hunting Strike:
Butchy & Snickers
