i took kimiko to the vet to be weighed last friday. she has lost another .6 lbs. her current weight is 6lbs. she is so tiny (as in skinny). our vet wants really wants to send her to the specialist out of town. he is now saying we should try an ultrasound instead of the endoscopy. he palpated her abdomen and said it felt like her bowels had thickened. i told him i would have to see what i could do as far as finances. maybe they will let me make payments. something for me to check on tomorrow. so until then, we are treating her with amoxicil since he feels she may have a build up of nasty bacteria in her digestive tract with all that has went on so far. i am thinking about adding some plain yogurt to her diet when she is finished w/ her antibiotics. i am sprinkling a little benefiber over her food to see if that will help firm her stools. she is also still taking prednisone every other day. her tummy makes lots of funny sounds all of the time. her appetite is not improving, at least not yet. i hope it does soon. our vet is concerned she will get fatty liver disease.
sometimes she looks so sad. she does not want any of the other kitties near her - she even growls at them. funny thing tho, she actually was laying almost on top of yuki last night. i even got photos of this as they never get too close to one another. kimiko is almost always near me now - she almost always has be able to at least see me. please keep purraying for her.
i would also like to thank everyone that has kept kimiko in their purrayers, has sent purrs her way and/or has been able to contribute towards her vet fund. it is so appreciated. regardless of the outcome it is and will always be comforting to know there have been so many who cared.
