worried



Well, I was going to post saying how pleased I was with my progress yesterday on Buddies, and how helpful I'd found the chatroom challenges I've been taking part in are... but the shine has been taken off that to a large extent by my current worries about Kuffer.

For a few weeks we've been noticing that he seemed to have lost a little weight, but he's been happy and contented in himself, and eating okay, so we just marked that down as something to raise with the vet on his next six monthly trip for his Program injection. However, I was woken up this morning by the sound of his tummy gurgling... really loudly. His tum has gurgled a bit now and again, but so do the tums of the other cats occasionally, and so does mine! So didn't think too much about it really... But this gurgling is loud and it's been going on since around 6.30am... He's also not eaten anything, and has been restless... so I've v. concerned about him. He's sixteen years old, so naturally, we're watchful with a cat of his age. Fortunately, his Program visit is actually tonight, so at least we were already going to the vets today, and this won't be another, extra, stressful visit for him...

Please have a good thought for my furry little lad.

Perhaps Kuffer just needs a simple worming treatment, Wendy? I know you have to be cautious at that age with cats. Fingers crossed, it's something simple. Good luck!

Thanks for the kind wishes, Nicolette. I'm also keeping my fingers cross that it's actually something quite simple...

Will keep you posted.

Lots of fishy, meaty thoughts coming Kuffer's way. Please let us know the news.

Ah, poor little thing, Kuffer will be in my thoughts, I hate when pets are sick
