Lost and Found

Couldn't find Piggy for an hour. Then I did...sleeping in a lampshade in the storage area. I wonder if this is the feline equivalent to dancing around with a lampshade on one's head...

Cute. The Pink Pig is looking pretty good. How is he doing health wise?

Thanks so much! He is doing really well. He does have bad days or a week, where he'll throw up often, have a weird coughing thing (from his heart issue, the docs say) or have bloody poops, or just be very tired and sleep for what feels like way too many hours to me, but we call those times 'episodes' and they do pass and between the episodes he is crazy, happy, hungry Piggy. You'd never know he was ill.

He has tooth decay and he can't have his teeth cleaned because his heart cannot withstand anesthesia, so that makes me sad for him, but it doesn't seem to affect him at all and the vet keeps a close eye on him. I brush his teeth (always did) a lot, so I just hope it helps halt the progression.

His blood tests continue to be very wonky indicating some massive infection, but he takes all his meds twice a day and lives a very happy, yummy, bratty (according to Grover) and spoiled life. Amen!

OXO
