Hurrah for Totoro

After the vet...time to rest...

I am glad his indicators have all improved tremendously. His BUN is now 20 (well within normal levels) from 180 on 29/7 and his creatinine is 2.4 from 20 on 29/7. 2.4 is still high but still very good. His potassium is 4.7! So all is good for us and the doc said we could reduce the SubQ to alternate days instead of everyday. THAT is progress :) But his meds will still be the same for each and everyday.

He was hospitalized on 29/7. I remembered that day clearly when Dr T said "There is not much hope for your cat," and I had to bring him to hospital straightaway.

But I think along the way there will be some bad news but I am glad for now at least everything is fine.

Read about the toxic toy recall & wonder how safe our pet toys are - probably worse. I buy some M*care toys but most are not suitable for cats. What about pet's water/feed bowls? Switch to glass/ceramic ones with no dye? I am looking suspiciously at Catit (plastic). I read that pop-top cat canned food may be lined with bpa (mothers are using babies' bottles that are bpa-free). Cats like to lick. I shd separate bonded cats after applying spot-on mite control. Looking anew at everything to reduce toxin ingestion if possible.
Glad Toro is doing well.
