AACKK! So I thought it would be fun going bye bye the other night but they ended up taking us to the V-E-T. Starr, my kitty sister Akira and I all got to go. I went just to give Starr and Akira support. Starr had to go to get her Rabies shot and some other vaccines. She weighed in at 85.6 pounds. She is up a pound from last time. Mom thinks it is because Samick isn't eating his food very well and Starr is sneaking in extra kibble.
Hey...where are you taking my sister???
Akira had to go because she is losing some of her fur on her back and tail areas. Mom about fell over when the VET told mom what was causing it. He told her Akira has fleas. What?!?!? We haven't had fleas in years and when we do get them mom is always the first one to know because they like to bite her. Mom told the VET she was shocked because none of the rest of us are even scratching at all. Mom thought Akira had some sort of allergy and has been giving her Benadryl. Well no wonder that didn't help, huh? So off we went to the store to get some medicine to put on our shoulder blades.
Mom also talked to the VET about Samick. Samick is getting worse and pretty much not wanting to eat anymore. He will eat his kibble only if we put moist food or gravy on it, which we have been doing just to try to keep him from losing anymore weight, he is getting so thin. We discussed things with the doctor and he is in agreement with what we are doing. He told us that when we feel Samick's quality of life is no longer there that we need to contact him. Right now Samick has his days and can't hold his urine for very long anymore and makes messes, but that is okay, that is what they make plastic for and we will just keep cleaning them up and telling him that he is okay. He still has a sparkle in his eye and it isn't his time yet.
