We've just been for our first check-up, 5 days after Au started his RetroMAD1.
Although he hasn't put on any weight (or lost any) Au has filled out a bit. He was a little dehydrated last week, so we think that it's taken him these few days to get his body is functioning properly again.
Au is eating, he's looking much better and he's much more active. All good signs. We think he should now start putting on lost weight again because that's what the other kitties did.
If Au does well this week, we don't need to go for 2 weeks.
The one concern we have is that one cat (there have been only 14 other test kitties) showed slightly higher liver ALT counts when he took the meds. The ALT was not very high, but just in case, I've got to keep an eye on Au's eyes rims, etc. If they look yellowish, then we stop everything and rush to the vet.
I'm not concerned: Au is visibly improving. Instead of being tired from the ordeal and sitting in bed, he's underneath the sofa, showing me the Tayul of Displeasure, and grumbling loudly at me to show what a mean-mean person I am.
I won't disturb him with the flashy box today. Instead, here's a picture of Target complaining that his pal from across the street is stealing some biscuits from Boris' cat bowl. Target sees Boris' bowl as his own, so he's suitably upset.
See you Monday with another update!
