Tygana Update

There's my brave little guy.

Tygana has been doing quite well with his Sub-Q's. We also got in his drinkwell 360 and it has definitely helped him to drink more, the first night I saw him stop at it at least twice and drink for literally 4 minutes.

So I think we have his fluids all set and ready. He has been having some stomach acid problems so he is on Pepcid AC.

Our big problem now is his appetite.
Poor little guy has barely been eating for days now, I've been keeping the vet up to date on this and today we were prescribed an appetite stimulant. Since taking it he's eaten some fancy feast not much but it's a start to me!

I ordered a baby scale so I can monitor his weight better.

Here's hoping he gains a nice appetite!

We are glad he is getting on well with his sub Q's. We hope the appetite stimulants work. We are sending more purrs to feel better.

Oh we are so so sad to read about Tygana being so sick! We have been away for a few weeks and just are purring and praying so hard for him to get better! We have missed you while you were gone and now we have been gone and oh, well we just adore Tyganna (and Pepper too) so much! We hope his appetite gets better - we know that the stimulants can take a little while to kick in so hopefully they will start to work. We are sending lots and lots of purrs and prayers!

We're happy that Tygana is doing better. We hope he starts eating more. Our mom had a cat before us that had CRF and it was always a challenge getting him to eat enough.

Oh no.. Tygana, please have noms. I'm purring for you my friend.

Tell your human to try petting you firmly while you're at the food dish. It worked with Inigo.

Purrs for Tygana from all of us!

Mom Kim here: I haven't dealt with CRF yet, but of course Annie was ill with multiple problems...We want our babies to get better so badly, and of course we want them to have quality of life too. It can be a balancing act in that regard, and sometimes hard to do what's for our babies' Highest Good, not ours.

Here's hoping the appetite stimulant kick starts his appetite and between that and the fluids, he has good quality of life for a long time yet!

It sounds like his other problems are getting better, but we really hope Tygana gets his appetite back!
