To my brofur Apollo

His hind legs don’t work

 

 

 

Hey Efurrybuddy, some of you know from my Facebook page, but my big brofur Apollo is not doing well. He is Siamese and was born with hip dysplasia. Mama did lots of kitty PT (physical therapy) and Reiki healing with him when he was a baby (and when needed since), and that helped him to have a very active life of tree-climbing and adventures. But the past two years his hips have been increasingly arthritic, and this past week he has not been able to use his hind legs much if at all.

He’s a tough guy though and will just drag his legs behind him to get places, but Mama has been carrying him to the bathroom, and the food dish, and his chair, and out into the garden to sunbathe, which he wuvswuvswuvs, and where he dreams of his divine fiancé Dinnermintz!

Please send prayers, pawyers, and purrrayers fur my handsome blue eyes lion man big brofur Apollo. He is a Sun god in Mama’s eyes!

Bump Update…

Hi everyone, Ku’s Mama here. Kuruk is a bit upset right now because I have decided that we need to have his bump biopsied/removed. He does not like to go to the doctor, and he especially does not like to be somewhere without me, so he is not too happy at the moment.

His bump had grown since we went to the Vet a few weeks ago. The Vet said it looked like a histiocytoma, a benign flesh-colored bump that goes away in a couple of months, so we decided to watch and monitor. It had grown into what looks more like a wart, still flesh-colored, and it did not bother him the least bit. Yesterday afternoon it started to look greyish, and this morning it is part black and red.

Tomorrow morning (Friday) I will take him in for the biopsy. He has to be sedated because of his size (nearly 90 pounds) and the fact that only I can touch him and prod him without him moving and escaping. Did I mention he doesn’t like the doctor?

Besides the change in the bump, he seems healthy. No change in behavior, eating, or poops. No swollen lymph nodes (I check every day), nothing abnormal. So, hopefully it’s just a nasty wart and not some sort of malignancy.

Ku will not be able to post tomorrow morning, but will hopefully be inspired to compose his Haiku in a day or two. Please send Ku your thoughts and prayers and love!

Thank you,
