A letter from a happy kitten

Hi kitties,

I’m back!

Actually I was always here- it’s my humans who weren’t. This time it was Mama who was hit by what she calls ‘a bad flu’… she still is suffering, but a little better now. She sounds different- with sort of a broken voice and all; also she smells a little different- she says it’s the anti-bio-tics that makes her smell like ‘medicine’ all the time. She stayed home some days, to my delight- but she went back to work today and I’m mad at her for that. Meow!

My second bloodworks result came in and it seems like I’m cleared from the Pancreatitis finally. I go back to the vet’s again next week though, since I have lost a little weight (0.25 grams) – and for a young and (now) healthy cat like me, losing weight is not ‘normal’. Laura, the vet, thinks it’s because I do not like my ‘prescription’ food much and do not eat as much as I used to. They’ll see next week and probably put me on another diet. I hope they give me a good-tasting food this time.

I’m turning 1 on the 21st of this month- Mama says that is still a couple of weeks away. That means that I have been with my humans for 10 months now. I guess months and years are a ‘human’ way to measure ‘time’. I don’t understand them much. To me, this seems like a lifetime. I’m a happy cat. I hope the humans and I can keep keeping each other through the ‘years’ and continue being ‘happy’.

That’s all for now, kitties. All the best to you all. I will post again, when the Mama is less busy and less ill 🙂

    I was just thinking: 0.25 grams is such a tiny amount that I am surprised that the vet could measure it. It’s only 0.009 ounces. If you took a drink of water, you would gain the weight back. Anyhow I am delighted that you seem to be over the pancreatitus. Have a wonderful birthday. I hope you get some food that you like better.

    Happy Birthday!
