Cody on Monday

After a long interval we finally have more pictures of Cody. 
He is looking well and more importantly is well and happy at home with his sister Halley. 
Halley may not think he is an asset though :)))
Nevertheless our Monday Mood is Thankfulness. 

Popps had to go to the vet yesterday as I noticed that she had a dark bald spot at the side of her mouth. It was not wet nor did it look fungal. I was thankful the vet said it was moisture dermatitis, the result of her continual licking of her face. Although she told Fern it was less itchy, it must still be itchy enough for her to do it. The vet gave her a shot of antibiotics and some anti itch meds. He did tell me it's a steroid to stop the itch but when I told him Popps was about 10, he said it was okay as long as there was an appropriate interval before the next one (if she should need it)

So indeed we have many things to be thankful for.

Cody, we just love seeing you happy in your Forever Home!

Paws crossed that the itchiness goes away, Popps.

Purrs,
The Chans

Cody! We're thrilled to se you again! What a great looking kitty you are. We still know you are a very special kitty. Our hearts are happy to know you are happy.
Don't be afraid of steroids, dear Popps. Our brother has had steroid shot for the last 16 months. All of his labs are normal because dose is right. Without the shots, his throat becomes so reddened and eroded that he cannot eat or swallow and is is terrible pain. He is not allergic but vet said it is immune. He will need shots maybe forever. Better he is comfortable and healthy in the here and now.
