another fun trip to the vet's

My poor little pukeball had to get her thyroid panel test done today. I had to explain to the vet that the cat never adjusted to me squirting the medicine down her throat and has been puking at least 3 days a week. I know some of the puke can be blamed on hairballs, but she never got sick this much before she went on her thyroid medicine. There's usually a present for me to clean up by the time I get home from work. She has at least been thoughtful enough to do most of her puking in the bathroom where there is linoleum. Easy clean-up compared to the carpet.

The vet sent for transdermal doses that I can put on the inside of the kitty's ear. I hope this solves the problem with her getting sick, because she is looking pretty scrawny lately. I've been combing her every day too so she isn't swallowing as much fur when she compulsively and constantly licks herself.

Wonder why my thyroid medicine never made me puke???? It just makes me bitchy...Well okay I'm already bitchy.......

Kee is MIA right now... When I got up for work this morning YellowCat ( that's what I've named him) was in visiting with my mom... He actually belongs to the people up the street and even though Kee and him fight...he's a really sweet cat....

Needless to say Kee wasn't too happy cause the canned food he was "saving" for later was gobbled up by YellowCat.......Yet I'm sure my mom felt bad and gave him more..... He's such a pig... I just wonder why he doesn't weigh 600 pounds from my mom babying him she's worse than I am....

They seem to be working pretty well so far. She is a bit miffed at me for rubbing goo in her ear, but she seems healthier.
