PF, Smudge looks like she does have a "smudge" on her nose. You have two cute kitties.

taxy, so glad you and Shreddy can get back to cuddle time. There is something so relaxing when you have a kitty purring on your lap. Or chest. Or neck. Relaxing until they start to lick with their tongues. What are those things, razor blades?
Smudge is such a...well it rhymes with itch. Very anti-social and has never really taken to me, she belongs the Shrek. But she is a pretty Kitty.

So glad LittleBit is doing better.

Shreddy seems to be doing well. He is more alert and eating less. I've really enjoyed sleeping with him again.

CG, how is your kitty doing? Still eating well and keeping it down?

One of my friends posted this on FaceBook and I shared it. I thought I should share it here too.

Glad to hear your good update on Shreddy! Like you, all is good on our homefront. LittleBit is back to normal...at BOTH ends of the digestive track. From the looks of it, maybe her treats should have been Ex-Lax tablets!

This is actually VERY good advice - and especially with the colder weather coming on.

I had a neighbor many years ago who lost their cat that way.

It doesn't take any extra time, just bang on it as you are walking by.

Fantastic news Taxy. I know how much you were worried. At least Christmas will be a little more relaxed for you.

Definitely more relaxed. At close to $1,600 for the I-131 treatment, I really wanted it to work. I'm relieved that I won't have to consider paying for a second treatment.

Shreddy and I also hated the prescription cat food, which was another way to treat hyperthyroidism in cats. Poor boy wouldn't have been allowed to eat anything else.
