Success of sorts

Mom wants to thank you all for your ideas! Perfy seems ok taking the Pred pill- but the problems have been with the green tea extract. Mom had originally bought the capsules- but Perfy wouldn't eat his food with it mixed in, which is why she bought the pills.

Yesterday, we got a treat..... TUNA! Mom doesn't really like giving us TUNA but she was at her wits end with stupid green tea extract pills! So she smashed up a pill and mixed it in with the tuna.

Now it wast a complete success- he definitely noticed something different with his TUNA. He first started licking the juice and not eating the meat. But then he started eating the TUNA that was laced with green tea extract! He was eating it!!!

Mom being silly wih her camera phone, was snapping pictures of Perfy eating! Moms are silly!!

She's going to see if he'll eat TUNA again today- shesais she's going to wait until he's super hungry!!

So that is the update as of now. Mom is still going to get a pill shooter- even though she's good at giving pills- she just doesn't want Perfy to go thru any unnecessary stress!!

Thanks for all the help!!

not getting any easier

**Perf's Mom here**

His pill taking and his reaction to his pills is getting worse! He's now starting to foam at the mouth after every pill and gags many times. I'm having to wrap him in a towel so that I don't get deep scratches or puncture wounds from him- he HATES it that much! And then he spends about an hour flicking his tail in anger!

I was hoping it wouldn't get like this! If only he tolerated pills! If only I could hide the green tea extract in his food- but he smells it! He would still have to take his steroid by pill but at least then it would only be one pill every other day.

He's losing fur on his neck from stress. And everytime I give him a pill he loses more fur.

It just doesn't seem fair to him! I'm telling him I'm trying to save his life- but he doesn't know why I'm doing this to him!

My poor Perfy! I'm sorry! I'm sorry I can't find a better way to make you feel better! I'm trying so hard and want to help you but I don't want to cause you anymore stress than you already have!

I'm sorry if you think I'm a bad Mom! I'm not! I would do anything for my furbabies!

I love you Perfy! I'll keep trying to different ways to give you your meds!

How To Stop a Siamese from crying at 4:30am every morning!

How? Why?

Mom is a little exhausted! Skye, the newest addition and mom's first Siamese since she was 6 or 7 years old, cries every morning at 4:30am. It's like mom's alarm clock- except she will not get up that early! The rest of us know that when mom's alarm goes off that it's our time but Skye doesn't or hasn't figured that out! Mom will go grab her and snuggles with her in bed and she stops.. But she's wondering if any other Siamese owners have any ideas. Mom knows cats- she thinks she's hungry or she could have an upset tummy like Winton used to (he would get pepcid ac at night) but she's also wondering if it's a Siamese "thing"... Please help our mom!

Meow.. Mom is a slacker with our blog! Kodak went to the vet this week to get his fructosamine level checked. It was "high normal" so he's still on 2 1/2 units of insulin twice a day. But mom is going to watch him- he's been thirsty lately but his numbers are ok.

Mom refilled Perf's prescriptionfor prednisolone. He's on one tablet every 24-48hrs. He's still taking his green tea extract- but he's gotten wise to it! He doesn't like gettig pills at all! If the pill doesn't go in the exact center of his throat he starts to drool and his gag reflex kicks in. Mom won't give up! He's still getting his ES-Clear once a day and food whenever he wants! Mom thinks he may have lost more weight- but she doesn't know for sure since she doesn't have a scale!

As for us, the girls, we rock and are racing all over the house while the boys sleep! We are young, we are strong, we are the girls!
