Thanks for the fave. Love your new photo. I love the photos of your cats. I had three myself. I never asked for any of them they just came to me shortly before my husband passed away. I think it was on purpose because I so needed the comfort and love at the time. I have found a good home for the Norwegian Forest cat, Gus. He hated my 15 year old female Kelly so I knew I had to find him a new home before I move. I widower who had just put down his cat adopted him. They are perfect for each other. Now I may loose my Kelly. She has hipper Thyroid and I cant seem to get it under control with the meds. I don't know what to do if it does not get under control. How long do I let it go? How long before she is suffering? It sure hurts. Sorry for dumping on you and thanks again for the fave.

We  had an older cat with an over-active (hyper) thyroid. She was always thinner than we liked, but she lived to be 21. If Kelly has only been on the meds for a month or two, give it some more time, it takes a while for the meds to help level thing out.  Otherwise, every day just ask yourself, does she seem happy? Does she purr when I pat her or rub her belly? Is she having trouble getting onto couches/chairs/up stairs? As long as you get the right answers to those questions, and she's not crying when she lays down or anything like that - just take it one day at a time.

My old Bacon has skin condition and early kidney failure, and that's what I do - he gets vitamin B shots for appetite, low-protein food, and skin shots regularly (taking him for one this morning). His appetite is always good right after the vitamin shot, then lessens over the next couple of weeks, so when he's eating, I feed him until he's about ready to explode, lol. That way it makes up for the weight he loses toward the end of the time period before his next shot.

He still loves to lay on the heat vent, grump at the other two cats, and loves to cuddle. He shows signs of aging, but not pain or suffering, so as long as he's just happy and OLD, we are happy too.

Hope this ramble helps! And you're welcome for the fave!  :)

Thanks for the reply. It really helps. They have upped her dose on the meds and we go back for more blood work in a month. I will struggle to keep her happy and pain free for as long as I can. I keep comparing her to myself and saying, I am an old one also, will I deserve to be put down when my health begins to fail? Hope to H*** not. The only other problem I face is the expense of her meds but I will figure that out. One good thing about all the trips back and forth to the vet is getting her accosted to riding in the car with out crying the whole way. LOL. Thanks again for your kind advice. They truly are our children.
