Status of Atlantis — He’s Becoming Very spoiled!

Our feline friend Atlantis has been having some issues this week. On Monday, I took him to the vet because he was very listless and not eating. His vital signs were fine and the vet thought that it could be that the pills that I give him for hyperthyroidism could be having an effect on his sensitive stomach. He’s now on an antibiotic and has some new thyroid medication where it’s administered as a creme in the ear. This eliminates the medicine going through his digestive system.

He’s come around and not hiding in a corner anymore. He’s becoming his vocal self again and is spending time on our laps and in the family room with us just like he usually does. His appetite is not great. He is eating but not as much as I’d like. Atlantis is a very smart cat and I think he knows that I’m spoiling him. I’ve been doing everything to get him to eat. Yet, he’ll eat treats all day something he wouldn’t touch on Monday.

He has another appointment with the vet on Feb. 8th where they’ll check is thyroid levels. He may need a little adjustment to his medication.

Keep a close eye on changes to your pets behavior. I’m a bit overbearing and a worrier to say the least but I would rather be too cautious than not cautious enough.

Remember, your pets count!
