CODY at home....finally

The picture his mum saw at FB that got him his own home 3.5 years ago

 He came to sniff at us some of the time.
 His mum tried to get him to sit with us as we were his previous caregivers when he was a commcat, but we knew knew everyone should take it slow as he might not want to remember his life then as well. he stayed here for a bit.
 And was up here, looking at us from a safe distance. We didn't want to make a fuss and even when he was a commcat, he was an alpha and didnt like fussing as well.

He finally decided we were ok and sat with us for a few minutes.

The last week of December has not been kind to Cody (who was adopted by Constance 3.5 years ago). His mum found him early one morning, about 4 ish am, unable to walk. Horrified she brought down his carrier and he immediately crawled into it without being carried inside. She knew right then that he was in a serious state and brought him to the specialist vets. After investigations, they found blood clots in his kidneys and veins. He was given a thinner and the next day fortunately the clots resolved itself but he was hospitalised for the week. They found an enlarged heart. He was not eating much. 

His blood tests showed that his kidneys were fine and there was nothing else that was wrong so his mum brought him home with medication, a blood thinner and diuretics. His mum is still waiting for his sonagram to bring him for a second opinion. 

He has now begun eating again, now that he has been home for about 2 weeks and is re-learning how to interact with his fursister Halley and his human brother. 

We visited him at his home yesterday and he looked very well, albeit thinner. He used to have muscles and now we could feel his bones much more clearly. His mum is trying to fatten him up again.  He looked really well and was walking about the house. He also showed us that he could eat a lot more as he had his 2nd dinner when we were there. Although his doctors could not tell us how long he will stay with us, with his heart problems, both human and cats are just taking it slow.

We can imagine how scared Cody's mum must have been, and are so pleased that he is better and he is home. We hope he will recover completely very soon.

We're sorry to hear that Cody has been having those issues! We hope the doctors figure out the best treatment, and purr and pray that he will get better real soon.
