Up Chuck

Chucky is chillaxin'

"Oooh, that woman and her stoopy camera!"
Weird how his eyes have a green cast in the photo
Thank you all for the kind comments for Chuck!

Since he received the Lasix shot and some more Lasix pills daily, The Hubby and I both have noticed that Chuck is livelier and back to his usual outgoing self.  He lost some weight too, which means that the fluid build-up in his body has decreased.  The vet agreed to allow us to wait for two weeks for Chuck to return to the office for a blood draw; seems that Lasix can mess with his kidneys and his potassium levels.

Guess we are just going to keep adjusting meds, and checking his levels of all kinds of things for the rest of his life. Chucky KNOWS that we are helping him as best we can.  He gets everything he wants, such as a third meal in the afternoon (Angel too, of course...), and sprinkles on top whenever they ask (nutritional yeast).

On top of their food!  Although, when I have a pinch of sprinkles between my thumb and finger, sometimes a cat moves in the way, and get some sprinkles on their fur!  They never seem to notice, and I won't say a word...😉

We're happy to of Chuck's improvement. We love black cats. Btw, the latest study shows cats do well with 4 or 5 small meals instead of two. We having an international giveaway so stop by :-)
