Drama Kitty

Hey there pugs and peoples. The Midi Kitty is trying to hogs all my spotlights again. You may remembers that her thyroid is hyper so she has to take some pills every day. Well, she's started itching and itching and itching. She scratches her ears, her head, her face. She looks like some big, mean cat attakted her.

(That's her before she started scratching)

So, Mom took her to the vet to get her thyroid tested agains and to see if she's got the mites in her ears or something. The vet thinks she might be allergic to her medicines. I says - "don't takes them!" But the vet said she has to take them and take some steroid pills. If she doesn't get better, we's gonna have to find some other way to make her thyroid stop being hyper. The trouble is, Mom says there's nothing else we can do.

They could make her radioactive, but that would mean driving her to Atlanta or Auburn and leaving her for like three weeks (I says "partay"), but Mom says she doesn't think Midi would handle the road trip and it's too much money that we don'ts have.

Then there's surgery, but the vet says probably nobody will operates on her 'cause she's 15 and her heart isn't in the best shape now because of her thyroid.

So, we's sad and we don't knows what's gonna happen. Hopefully she's just itching because of a new food or something and it will go away soon.

Oh Harry - I hope you're right about poor little Midi. Maybe it's her food, the heat, the humidity, the stock market, the housing market, the war, the death of David Carradine, etc. that is making her itch. Give her a special kiss from me before she goes to sleep tonight.

Poor Midi Kitty!!!

We're with Stubby...it's probably the death of David Carradine that has her all stirred up!

Maybe if you tell her thyroid to stop being hyper and calm the heck down, it will work and she'll stop being itchy!?

Good luck and keep us posted!

Harry, make sure Midi keeps taking the medicine. Our boy Sam is hyper and he has to take medicine for it. If he doesn't take it, he gets really crazy! So we don't want Midi's thyroid to be like that!
Pug hugs and kisses!

I hope your Kitty friend is just allergic to her new food. It might be cool putting her on steroids though - then she'll be a big beefcake cat! You can rename her BEEFCAKE!!

Oh Harry!

I am simply distraught about this Midi situation! I am really hoping it's something else that's making her so itchy. I have really bad itchies, and since Momma doesn't have enough $$ to take me to the allergy-doctor-specialist-guy, she uses all kinds of alternative methods to help the itchies stop. Let me know if you want more info on all that, k?

I'm thinkin' of you guys!

Oooh I'm sorry Harry, I hope Midi is feeling better soon. Sometimes my cat brother gets a little irritation on his skin and his steroid pills fix it up real fast.


Pearl said...

Harry, my sweetums... just for the record, you don't need to give me awards to be a great boyfriend!!! You are simply wonderful!

Hi Harry,
Oh I sure hope Midi is ok. I hope it is just a food thingy or something.
I have a new blog now; please come meet my new brother! If you would like to link to me, can you please list me as "Sunshine and Mud Puddles"? Thanks!
Love Clover xo

Aw, poor Midi! We will be praying it is just a food thing or that something else can make the itchies go away. I think Stubby gave a lot of other reasons that maybe the vet did not take in to consideration. For instance, on the way home from work the other day my neck got REAL itchy all of a sudden, and turned red and bumpy. Then about 30 minutes later, it went away. I think it was probably my allergy to work wearing off after a long day. There's no way to tell for sure....
