Lilly  
A couple weeks ago, lightwaysJen talked about what's going on with her cat, Lilly.  We've been giving Lilly pills for the hyperthyroidism since then - one in the morning and one at night.

Thursday, I saw her....hiccoughing?  Hacking?  Dry heaving?  ....doing something that was difficult to describe other than "not right."  That evening, Jen said she thought something was off with her as well, so Friday I called the vet again.  No appointments until yesterday morning, when I was in Boards review, so Jen took her in.  Turns out that she's lost more weight in the two weeks or so since her last appointment - a major concern.  So they kept Lilly there for observation, and we'll be calling to find out what's going on Tuesday morning.

Needless to say, we're both very worried.


Which doesn't prevent me from coming up with a lame joke.  Defense mechanisms work that way, you know?



So the question I have is, if they need to do advanced imaging on Lilly, will they do a PET scan or a CAT scan?

Defense mechanisms are all we have sometimes.

Thinking of you both.

pet scan....
I am so sorry to hear this. Lilly is such an awesome kitty! How is your kitty taking this? You have my support.

Not great
She's gotten very lovey, very whiney, very vocal. Last night she crawled into Jen's lap and flopped there. This isn't hugely significant except that I was sitting right next to her, and she chose Jen - an unusual decision for her.

She's lonely. All we can do for her is give her love and try to reassure her. And stop her from scratching at the window screens. =/

I'm sorry to hear she's got so much going on :(
One of my biggest fear is something happening to my little ones.
