The cat is looking at me with black eyes telling me to get off his blog already.
But I wanted to thank every one of you for your comments and emails over the last couple of days. Everyone's support, warmth and advice has been very helpful. It's valuable to hear about others' experiences with hyperthyroidism, the treatments their cats have undergone, and especially the outcomes.
I should really compile some of your observations in a blog post titled Hyperthyroidism Treatment for Cats - so that people searching for support can find this info in one place. I may.
Estorbo has taken his first two pill doses with no problem. Although he takes pills readily from me (I've had a lot of practise with a certain vicious-when-pilled Efrican Blek-footed Ket, RIP), we decided to put each half pill in a treat, so that he can be pilled by others in case we are not here; also to make it less stressful. So far so good.
Now we watch for adverse reactions - intense face-scratching, vomiting, lethargy. Hopefully they do not appear.
In the meantime he has a question for you. We discovered this this morning on his foot.
"Whad the forgh happen' to my bag food (seee peecture aborf)???".
We think we know, but do you?
