Thank you, everyone!


It's Pig and I want to give you an update.

First of all, we are so touched from your emails and comments and all the good wishes and information. It means so much to us! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

We still do not know what (if anything) is wrong with me, but after nearly being starved to death, the ultrasound, thank goodness, showed nothing amiss!

Well, it did show one embarrassing thing that I cannot believe they even spoke about in front of me. They said I had solid poop in my colon, which was good news because I've had nothing but loose poops for over a month. The vet thought maybe the change of food is working on the diarrhea, which is still (besides the blood results and enlarged lymph nodes) my only symptom.

However, the vet said I have one more symptom...I have lost another 7 ounces since my 10:30 a.m. vet appointment on Saturday (2 days ago). And at that appointment I had already lost 8 ounces since my appointment just a week before that.

So, after another pow-wow with other vets, they forced me to have yet another blood test to see if things are going back to normal or getting worse.

Starve me, insult me by making my mom sign a piece of paper indicating I will be shaved for the ultrasound (as if!), push some weird thing against my belly and peek at my insides, talk about my poop in front of me AND stick another needle in me? Harrumph.

This time, I did my requisite screaming and fussing, but not so strongly as before because. obviously, my ruckus-making is not stopping them from doing what they want to do to me. No bother, I am saving my energy for when I really need to kick butt.

So, I don't know what else to say except we are all so grateful for your thoughts and prayers and we hope tomorrow brings some news that helps put an end to this nonsensical nonsense.

And now I am going to take a nap in my cat carrier. My blue plaid blanket is in there and it's very comfy. I figure since I'm always in there lately anyway, I might as well be all ready for the next trip to the vet.



P.S. Oh! One good thing - the vet said that since I am losing weight, even though I'm still big-boned (ahem), I can have as much food as I want now! I couldn't believe my ears (and believe me, my ears are BIG)! Yes! I can eat everything I want! Wahoo! This is better than winning the lottery! This is better than Grover deciding to move in with someone else's family! This is really good!

P.P.S. Shhh...I don't really want Grover to move, but I do want him to stop hissing at me. He's been very nasty to me since I got home from the vet's today.

P.P.P.S. Do I smell?

P.P.P.P.S. This is Grover. Yes, Piggy, you smell.

Hello, Piggy. This is Shana. I don't have my own blog, so I can't link to it here. I just wanted to tell mew it was nice having mew in my neighborhood this morning, even though I didn't get to see mew.

Jodi tells me that new look just like I would look if I didn't have my thick, velvety black fur. She said something disparaging about "a tiny head and an enormous body." Mew DO know how I intend to get back at her for saying such things, don't mew? Ohhhh, yes, mew do.

P.S. I have my own blog now!! MEOW!!

Hi Piggy! It's nice to meet you! We guess there's one good thing about losing a little weight...and that's getting all the food you want! But we do hope that you are okay and the v-e-t can figure out what's going on with you...

I am so glad that the ultrasound found nothing amiss. I hope that your blood test comes back normal, too. Yay for getting to eat as much as you want!
