Monday Musings with Georgia

Georgia: OK, was  a nice sunny day on Sunday morning.
Mom says the sun will not last. It will get cloudy and then there
 will be snowflurries .

I hurried out to the porch to enjoy those nice warm rays!

Wait!! I hear somecat eating!

JJ!!! What did you get?

I have to check this out!

You didn't even save my a lick?

 Mom here:
 JJ was recently diagnosed as having Hyperthyroid.
So far, it is mild. Due to his soft/runny poop, I took him to the Vet.
That is a symptom of the disease.
He gets Metronidazole twice a day and Tapazole once a day.
He takes his pill in a bit of stinky goodness.
At night, I give all the kitties a bit of the stinky goodness.
They are upset as they did not get any in the  morning!

You know you want to see Julie's reaction!
Pop over to see her at House Panthers!

Hello Georgia! I cannot think of a single good reason that your brother should be getting a treat that you don't get too. I think you and Julie should make some picket signs and go on strike!! JJ can have his medicine, of course, but you and your sisfur deserve a little serving of your own, sans medicine! There's no excuse for this kind of inequality! XOXOXO

Georgia, we're glad you got to enjoy a little sun before it goes away. And we can't believe JJ didn't save you any food! Well, that's what hyper-T does to you! We hope the med helps JJ feel better.

Katnip Lounge said...

Georgia, we loved seeing more of your big feets...and maybe tonight you'll get ANOTHER treat?

Sparkle said...

I hope the meds work out for JJ! I'm glad to see he eats them in his food - I won't eat meds in mine usually.

The Swiss Cats said...

We're glad to see you enjoyed a sunny day ! We hope that the drugs work for JJ. Purrs

Lone Star Cats said...

Hope JJ's meds help him.

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope that JJ carries on being good with the meds. Can we come and have some of your sunshine please?
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

The Meezers or Billy said...

oh JJ, we hopes the pills work for you!!

we had lots and lots of snow this morning - the mom called it a white out. and the temperature is 'posed to fall more than 30 degrees in the next couple of hours! YIKES!!

Fuzzy Tales said...

As an FYI, it usually works better to give the hyper-t meds twice a day (split the dose). Not sure why your vet is doing only once a day. (Annie was hyper-t.)

Note that blood platelets can fall when first on the medication, but usually return to normal after that.

There's tons of good info, vet-written and other, re: hyper-t...good luck!

Purrs from the boys.

Nerissa said...

I think you should all get some of the good stuff morning and night. Only fair...


PS. If you happen to spot that ol' sun again, tell him to visit me up here, okay? I'm missin' my sun puddles! purrs

Team Tabby said...

We do the same here when Cookie gets his twice a day supplement to keep his kidney function going. He gets it in stinky goodness and we get a little of that goodness (without meds) too - only fair!

Brian said...

Suuny days without snow is sure a plus!

Flynn said...

It's nice to be able to enjoy the sun now and again.
Hope the meds help your Hyper-T JJ.

meowmeowmans said...

Georgia, we're glad you got some rays before they went away again, even if you did not get extra foods like JJ.

We are purring and praying for JJ!

Loretta Thomas said...

There is nothing like nice sun puddles to warm the soul!!
Purrs, Izzy

catsynth said...

Nice to get some sunshine while it lasts :)

Sending healthy vibes for JJ!

Oui Oui said...

Wow, we wouldn't like just treats for one or two kitties, even if it was for a good cause. And if it was MMM, she would scarf down everyone else's.

The Indulged Furries said...

Nice sunshines.

Hopefully the tapazole will keep JJ's thyroid levels in check. We were able to manage our cat on it for 4 years without any problems. We hid his pill in a little ball of cheese and he loved it. Treat time!

William said...

Hi Georgia! You look beautiful as usual! I hope JJ's meds work out. Maybe you could get an extra treat for not getting extra food?

Avalon's Garden and Mewsings of Garden Cottage Cats said...

Tails from the Foster Kittens said...

The Crew knows the feeling. I use treats to bribe cats into letting me pill them, and the healthy kitties don't understand why they don't get treats too

Katie Isabella said...

JJ darling, Admiral had hyperthyroid too, and took methamizole. Her thyroid got under control. xoxoxo

Mr. Black said...

Georgia, you are so cute.

I'm sure JJ will be fine as long as he takes his medicine. The lady had a kitty with hyperthyroid who lived for many years. Many cats seem to get it; not sure why.
