Lots of folks have been asking us how cat bro Bert’s fur troubles are doing. Well, as you can see, I am not particularly concerned. As long as he leaves me and my bed alone, everything is fine.
What have we seen since his vet visit? Just a day or two after getting some medications he started eating all his food again and demanding more food than Mom will give him. Whenever he stops eating it always means something is really wrong. After five days we removed his cone which makes him very happy.
He also stopped throwing up all over the place, thank dog for that. Having two cats we don’t know who is the cause of the troubles, but the throwing up was definitely Bert. He had also been going the the bathroom outside the litter box and that too has stopped.
Bert is back to being a cranky old man cat, yelling at us and Mom all the time. These are all signs that he feels better. We have also noticed he has not lost any more furs but that doesn’t mean his fur troubles are gone. He has not grown new furs yet. The furs he does have look more like they used to, not so weird.
His belly is still a concern. It isn’t bright red anymore, but it is still furless and not entirely free of being red. He is still taking pills for another two weeks. They are slowly being tapered off. We are giving it some time and if it seems to not get better, he will have to see the vet again.
On another more happy note, we have this bird. Isn’t it adorable? The guy flew into the window and knocked himself silly the other night. Mom carefully moved him outside our fenced yard so he would have a chance to safely recover. The next morning he was gone. We have never seen such a bird before, but he sure is cute and we are happy he survived.
