Bad News Bout Maurice

Dis just stinks.  We got some very bad news bout Maurice, Ally's kitty and my original kitty boyfriend.

Da peeps got a call from da VetMan dis mornin, Maurice's white blood cell count are through da roof.  It are 56 thousand somefin and it should be round 16 thousand.  So dey took him in to da vet.  Da vetman wanted to do an ultrasound, but he couldn't get da ultrasound peeps to come today, so he referred Maurice to dis speshul diagnostic center.  When da peeps got da, da electricity in dat part of town were out, so Maurice couldn't get his ultrasound right away.  But dat vet said he felt a lotta fluid in Maurice's tummy.

Anyways, da power eventually came back on and Maurice got his ultrasound.  And da vet took a sample of some of da fluid in his tummy.  And he are thinkin it are FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis). Our regular vet had done a blood test for dat, but apparently doin a test on da fluid will let us know better.  But we might have to wait until Monday to find out.

If ya don't know what FIP are, it are a really awful disease.  There's no cure and no vaccine for it.  It are bascially a mutashun of da feline coronavirus.  Which lotsa kitties get and it do not cause dem a problem.  But when it mutates, it are nasty.  It uses a kitty's white blood cells, which are supposed to fight diseases, to help spread it round da body.  Dere's basically nuffin da peeps can do, except give Maurice some steroids to try to make him feel a lil better.  He also has some Baytril, just in case it are some kinda penicillin-resistent bacterial infeckshun.  But after da peeps read about FIP, it really sounds like what Maurice has.  Which means he probably won't have very much more time with us.  

And he are only four.  And we's already lost 2 kitties in da last year and a half, Charlie and Jezebel.  It's so wrong dat somefin like dis are happenin to my Maurice.  I luvs him so much, me and him got to be really good pals when we lived together in Austin.  And he may have only a few more weeks left.  Dis are not right, he should be livin to 20 or somefin, not not even makin 5.  

We's all real sad round here.

Sepia Saturday

Hey y'all!  I had some good barkin on my Zombie Patrol™ today.  I barked da cricket playin zombies dat hang out over in MY field - I don't know why dey wanna play somefin named after a bug, but dey does.  I don't like it, so I barked em.  And I barked a Kerry Blue terrier who had da odd-ass-ity to walk down MY street.  Dis are my terriertory, and I shares it wif my BFF and my kitties, but no one else.  And dere wuz some other lil pups to bark on my walk too and a whole gang of bigger dogs.  I got so busy wif barkin dat I forgot to Ted for a while, but den I remembered and lied down.  I dunno why momma complains bout me Teddin, she are da one who are always doin da exorcise videos.  I are just helpin wif da resistance trainin on our walks.

P.S.  My pal Kyla got some bad news today, da melanoma are back and it has spread.  Head on over to her page and send her lotsa POTP.

Throwback Thursday

Hey y'all.  I are doin Throwback Thursday today since my momma went and broke her computer.  She are not really sure what happened, she just closed it and da glass on da screen cracked.  So I's havin to use her old MacBook.  Dat are why I ain't been round too much.  

Dis are one of my favorite fall pictures, it were taken at Hahvahd Yahd from when I lived in Bawston.  Or Cambridge if ya wants to be particularistic.  It are not lookin nuffin like dat round dese parts, it are still warm enuf for me to play pool ball.  Ya notice how perfectly my fall dress blends in when dose leaves?  Great camouflage when ya's huntin skwerrils.  And dere wuz lotsa skwerrils at Hahvahd.  And not just da four-legged, bushy-tailed kind neither.
