Took Foss --- um. Took Tangelo in to the vet last night. I was planning on going to the darkroom to get my film developed so I could do some print work tomorrow, but the vet took longer than expected. I had a really rough time, I’m afraid. He had a fever – about 104º - which surprised me because he hasn’t been acting like he feels sick. The vet gave us some suggestions about how to cool him down, and I asked how we could tell when his temperature was back to normal. She said when he started acting like he was feeling better – but he isn’t acting like he’s sick in the first place! The vet was concerned and puzzled, and asked if he’d come from out of state. Apparently some blood disorders not commonly found in California could be responsible for his symptoms.

I am severely annoyed at the vet I took Tang’ to in July – he told me that apart from signs of an infection, Tangelo’s test results were completely normal. The vet I saw last night said that they had records of some abnormal blood cells. He didn’t just not tell me, he said there WAS nothing else. Sonofa… *sigh* Guess I’m going to have to be more assertive about digging up information. I… don’t really want to change hospitals, because this one is so convenient, and the short commute time lessens the stress on the animals, but… maybe I should just take them to Bay Cities. Well, we’ll see.

I just… every cat I’ve lost was underweight at the end. This really, really bothers me. I was nearly crying in the appointment room when they had to sedate him to get blood. I had this awful conviction that he just wasn’t going to wake up…

God, I didn’t even connect this until now, but that was the beginning of the end for Radar. He just didn’t come out of sedation Hm. That explains a lot of my reaction. Wow.

The results should be in today. They sent us home with antibiotics. Personally I don’t think he even has an infection because he has not been acting sick, but I guess they couldn’t hurt.


*hugs you tight* It's so distressing when one of your babies is sick. And this may also lend some insight as to why he's been so persistant in spraying stuff...(Otana's)

I HATE vets who don't give you all the information you need, that's just...GRRRRRRR!!!

Hang in there hon...I hope he'll pull through just fine.
Sending you positive fuzzy furballs of hope!

My thoughts are with you.
I know what it's like to have one of you own cats to be sick. They feel like your own children and you'd do anything for them.

(Tanslation: Some cats get sick for mysterious reasons and get better just as mysteriously. It's either that or I said "I want petted now!" I cant tell the difference.(Or it could be both.))
I hope your furbaby will be ok. I can't imagine him not with a wonderful meowm like you though. At least this vet is trying to figure out what is wrong. That other vet sounds like a dip to me. I'm sure everything will turn out ok though.
