Quick Scarlett Update

"He's mine, Mom. Back off."

Scarlett's kidney test results indicated diminished function, but there's still a possibility that it's an infection. She is currently part way through three weeks of antibiotics. I have her on glucosamine for the arthritis, which I'm told takes a few weeks to show results. There is also going to be a kidney supplement, but the vet doesn't have it in yet.

As for Melly, I've been adding pumpkin and probiotic supplements to the cats' food, and it seems to be helping with her tummy trouble.

All in all, things are looking up!

I'm glad there's improvement for Melly. She's being very trendy and seasonal with the pumpkin ;) Fingers and paws crossed for Scarlett that it is just an infection.

PS. It's great to see how much the kitties and Josh adore each other :)

Rooting for Scarlett. She's such a beautiful kitty.

Sending purrs to Scarlett! It sounds like Melly is on the same stuff that Boodie is right now - she had a blowout yesterday morning that my human woke up to! (Dinner was half of a different food than normal, so that probably caused it.) Binga has the opposite problem... and is also taking probiotics and pumpkin. Works both ways!

glad to hear things are going well. I hope the kidney thing is an easily cleared up infection and things are back to normal soon

That is a great picture, and I'm glad things are going well. Crossing my fingers!
