Monday Is Man Cat Snoozle Day

It's raining so the cats are hanging out in comfy places. Target has snaffled my office chair - so I'm sitting in his.

Au has taken over the spare bedroom.  I made up the bed for me (for when T-man snores!) but after cleaning it, putting in the comforter, the fan etc, Au decided it is HIS space.

You know how Au didn't eat properly for 2 days last week, then started eating again?  I took him to the vet for a checkup and as it turns out, his liver has flared again.  This is why his appetite went.  However, Au started healing himself.  This is very good news.

To make sure he continues to get himself into shape, Au is off the RETROMAD1 for a week, and onto liver supplements.  We'll check in with the vet again over the weekend to see about progress.

In the meantime, Au is eating his old cat food again, Snappy Tom sachets of Red Snapper.  He's also munching up chicken roll, cat biscuits and snacks.

I worry about my old boy but I have high hopes...

Well I am glad there are many chairs around so there are no chair fights--or cats getting moved like happens here!

Good that Au is healing himself. And eating as well. That menu sounds yummy, by the way!

Sounds like there are plenty of comfy places for the Big guy to rack out. So nice of you to provide them, just for him of course!

Love and Purrs to all.

Sending good vibes to Au.

Hope he continues to feel better and heal himself well. Sometimes the body works such wonders beyond scientific comprehension. We call it miracle!

May Au continue to be blessed by miracles and good appetite! :)

Purring for Au! Glad to hear he is eating well.

All beds and chairs belong to Cats! It's a rule. We are purring that Au eats like a champ this week and his liver recovers. Have you considered milk thistle supplements? It is supposed to work well to clear the liver of toxins.

Kjelle Bus said...

Your sleeping spots look really comfy !!!
Here has the sun been shining all day long today = Hurray :)

Looks like the cats know just what to do when it is raining - just snooze away. So good to hear the upbeat report on Au.

I am sure the cats appreciate you making many comfy spots for them to rest.
Hope Au's liver gets better again.

Thank you so much for blogging about your experience with RetroMAD! All of us cat-people are really interested and hopeful about this new drug, and it's been wonderful to follow Au's progress.

Am delighted that Au heals himself. I will pray that he continues to do so. Sending him lots of nice things to eat, with love.

He looks awfully tense :-). I'd love to be able to crash that way. He does look comfortable. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
