Sorry for the absence on here, been a funny year. It was a year yesterday since we had to say our goodbyes to Fizz, still miss him & it hurts like crazy again, because I've been reminded of his passing.
The gang are all still good, adjusted to life without the little man. Alfie's good, we found out that someone else was looking after him before he'd made his decision to move in here. They don't drive round to our side of the estate (it's a big circle) and thought he'd been lost to the main road. Shaun (the guy feeding Alfie) was overjoyed to hear that he's in fine health & has a home now. He was reluctant (refused) to let us groom him, & he refused to groom his back for a time, so had to go & have a mohican at the vets to get rid of the mat. Weird, a short hair cat getting mats but not uncommon I guess.
Amy is ok, she's still doing her thing.
Molly was diagnosed in late Jan with Hyperthyroidism. We are giving her Vidalta daily & it seems to be doing the trick, she was losing weight but eating lots. Her weight in Feb was 2.9kgs, at her review last week, she was 4.15kgs. Paul, bless, still the same vet, is happy with her, she did have an issue with gums bleeding a few weeks ago, but Paul is happy with her teeth, she's gotta be 15yrs old. With the blood tests they did to diagnose the thyroid (gland enlarged as well) there was no sign of FIV, given the history, Paul would have checked.
I've had a new disc fitted in my neck 11wks ago & have been off work since the op. Recovery going ok, going back to work, part time, initially, next week.
Sorry for being a stranger, but you can understand we've had a few things going on.
Thanks again for all of your help & support with Fizz, he was a real character. I know he'd hate me being upset over him.
Pics below, of Fizz in happier times, how I want to remember monkey tail.
Sorry, feeling a little low today, but the op has been a real roller coaster of emotions as well.
