a busy week....

Mom had to go out of town last week. Her mom was having surgery, so she left us in the very capable and loving hands of our petsitter!

Mom lined up all of Perf's "medication"... She decided against chemotherapy for Perfy- he would be miserable! He hates getting pills and going to the vet! Mom says "hates" is being nice- he becomes a demon cat at the vet!

But mom is giving him pills! He gets his prednisolone two times a day then he's getting green tea extract, salmon oil and an American Indian remedy called ES-Clear: it's made of Burdock, Sheep Sorrel, Slippery Elm and Chinese Rhubarb. Mom doesn't know if these will work but she's willing to try as long as Perf tolerates everything.

Purrs for Perf, I am glad he's taking his medicine!

Lots of purrs to Perf! Our mom bought ES-Clear for Cal, but never gave it to him. She is keeping it on hand in case she ever needs it. Predisilone really helped Cal. We hope it does well for Perf too!

Continued purrs and healing Light for Perf from us too. Of the ingredients in the ES-Clear, our human only knows about slippery elm and its calming effects on tummies/intestines.

We're purring for Perf and we hope the medications help him.

Hope your Mom's surgery went well.

We think you made a very good decision for PErf, chemo can be a real ordeal in itself and if he hates the vet so much then it would be doubly hard.

We send you all rumbly purrs with some special head bonks for dear Perf.

We wish your grandma a swift recovery, and your mom a good visit.

Sounds like the right choice for Perf. We are sending him big kitty smooches to heal his sore tummy.

It sounds like you have come up with the Perf-ect compromise to treat Perfie and still keep him happy!

My heart aches for your Mmmy and Perf. Tell your Mommy that my Mommy Tracy feels he is doing the right thing.

Harry Spotter said...

Hope Perf is feeling better with all the love and care he is getting. Sending you purrs and prayers to get well soon.

Healing purrs going out big time to you, Perf! We think your mom is doing the right thing for you. We have heard of the remedy you mentioned and we know a human who took it when she had breast cancer a number of years ago. She says it helped.

Hang in there, Perf!

Kind of rough having both your mom and your kitty sick at the same time. We hope your mom is doing well and Perf too. Purrs and tail wags.
