Atlantis, our sweet Siamese/Himilayan cat has host of medical problems including hyperthyroidism, kidney disease, and digestive problems. Lately, his been pulling his fur out. He has an appointment with the vet on Oct. 7th. Lately to get an appointment for anything is a nightmare!  They can’t take him before that so I would need to go after hours as an emergency. That means I have add another $200 to my bill. Oct. 7th is his regular check up where they’ll do routine blood work an give him an overall health check. I will tell them about his hair pulling at this time.

Yesterday, Atlantis became listless, wouldn’t eat and preferred go stay in a corner in the bedroom all day. I became concerned when he refused his food in the morning. During the day I gave him small portions of broth and blended wet food. He only ate small portions and would only eat if I took the food to him. I figured that today I would have to take him in as an emergency.

Today, with the help of a prayer or two, Atlantis almost seems back to normal. He followed me in the kitchen meowing for his food. He drank lots of water. He still prefers his new spot in the bedroom but that’s ok as long as he’s eating and drinking on his own.  It has certainly been a roller coaster ride with our little friend and we will do anything to make sure that his life happy and comfortable.

Pet owners need to pay close attention to any changes in behavior. Act quickly and do what you have to do get on top of any problems as soon as possible.
