Yes, I do also! My Azia is a large dog. I have very much of bending over to pet my cats.

Your friend,

Having a bit of a rough day here. Shreddy, my tomcat with hyperactive thyroid, is asking for food when he hasn't finished what I already gave him. I feed him at least once every two hours. I don't want him losing any more weight. He will be getting his radioactive iodine shot some time this week. He also vomited twice today and twice yesterday. Three times on the stretcher of my antique table, so I had to deal with it right away. I have no energy and mild aches and pains, so I wasn't happy dealing with cat hork after two sips of my first coffee.

I took a nap, but after half an hour, my foot started to cramp. I walked around and I massaged it. Then the cramp moved to the other side of the foot and up my calf. Got that sort of under control and it started with the other foot and leg. I'm reading on the couch with the heating pad handy. Sorry to be such a downer.

We'll be scrounging for supper.

TL, I know those days so well. You have my sympathy and understanding. It is not a fun day. And for this to happen during the weekend that you should be enjoying. Take care of yourself and get some rest. One for you. Sounds like you need it. and one for Shreddy.

Thanks PF.

I forgot to mention that Shreddy is peeing about twice as much as before. Of course, I start worrying about diabetes. I sure hope it's just a side effect of eating so much canned cat food or related to the hyperthyroidism.

Shreddy's kidney's are working harder to process all that protein, you probably notice he is drinking more water, too.

Oh, that's a relief. Yes, he is drinking more water too. I guess that happens with humans who have hyperactive thyroids.

And the poor boy has gotten skinny enough that I can feel his vertebrae.
