Happy Friday! Harley had a kidney values check and follow-up echocardiogram on Wednesday. As a reminder, Harley has chronic kidney disease and the vet suspected (last year) early hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. So, he had his second echo this week to ensure we can keep treating his CKD with subcutaneous fluids. The echo showed no advancement in his heart disease, so that’s great! However, his kidney disease has progressed a bit. So, we will be increasing his fluids to every other day instead of three times a week. And then we’ll do another kidney check in a month to see if that extra little bit helps. Everything else in his senior exam was great, so we’re happy for that at least.
Here’s what the cats were up to this week!
Grumpy Dexter vs. Curious Dexter
Something made a noise behind me and he had to check it out. He put his grumpy face back on when it no longer interested him. He’s my grumpy boy and I love him. ❤️
Mama: What are you doing?
Sophie: Nothing to see here.
Mama: No really, what are you doing?
Sophie: No really, move along.
Harley: Mama, can I have a snack?
Mama: You just ate dinner.
Harley: I’m still hungry.
Mama: But you didn’t even finish.
Harley: Exactly. That’s why I’m still hungry.
Mama: I mean, I guess that makes sense.
Harley: I’m pleased you understand.
Mama: You’re not getting a snack.
Mama: What’s wrong?
Olive: Woodrow looked at me!!
Olive: That’s all!!
Mama: Overreact much?
Woodrow simply walked by Olive, she hissed at him and then turned and gave me this look. She’s not a fan of his. Poor Woodrow.
Harley’s Big Day
Mama: Are you still mad at me?
Harley: What does my face say?
Mama: That you’re fluffy and cute.
Harley: Drat! My face has betrayed me!
Harley went to the vet today for a kidney values check (for his chronic kidney disease) and an echocardiogram (for his heart disease). His echo was good – no changes! We’ll have his kidney values back tomorrow.
