We had a sort of yucky day of waiting on Wednesday after taking our cat Molly to the vet. They apparently don’t call with test results until after 7pm, and we didn’t hear back until after 9! She’s been losing weight, which could be a good thing because she was too heavy for her frame at 16 pounds. Now she’s 11 pounds, and the vet tested her thyroid function.
The results came back slightly elevated, and the vet said that is sort of a grey area. So now, we wait. In 30 days, we are taking her in again to get weighed and tested. If she’s lost more weight it could be very bad. If she’s maintaining, it probably means Agnes, our other cat, is getting a little more aggressive about food. The latter would be great, because Agnes was a little too skinny, and Molly is now at a healthy weight.
In conclusion, I’ve been a little bit worried about my cat, and I wish I could lavish her with toys and treats like these:
Clockwise from the top left, you’re lookin’ at:
- A pair of organic catnip-stuffed hedgehogs by The Upstairs Room.
- White Magick Shoppe’s pot of organic catnip.
- A recycled catnip toy made from a holey sock by Marvelous Melissa.
- A felt stick stuffed with organic catnip from spellwell.
So freaking cute!
