Furry good news ...
Mom's cousin emailed with this message:
"I took her into the vet this morning because she threw up every day this weekend and didn't really want to eat or drink. That was a really bad sign for her kidney problems. The good news was it wasn't her kidneys causing the problems. She has a little virus that's making her feel puny but it will run it's course in the next few days.
As a precaution, the vet did put her on amoxycillin for the next 7 days. She doesn't like it and tends to spit it out. The vet went ahead and did the kidney test today (although Zoey didn't really want to give up the blood for the test). The tests showed that her kidney levels dropped from 106 last Monday to 41 today (below 30 is what we want) and her creatine level dropped from above 4 to just under 4 (we need 2.4). All in all, the vet was very encouraged and said that it's possible that she may make a complete recovery. We will have to continue her IV treatment (in fact she'll get it everyday for the next couple of days) and the dreaded capsules, but that she should be in good shape soon.
The vet has recommended that we wait a few days before adopting a new kitten to give Zoey a chance to recover from her virus but that otherwise it should be okay to adopt.
For all the rest of you with pets, the vet has recommended to all her patients that they take their pets off all foods containing wheat gluten since the recall seems to be spreading."
Mom emailed back and said all of the "whoo hoos" for us ... plus, she recommended adopting TWO kittens instead of one 'cuz kittens can entertain each other and not be such a threat to an older cat as a single kitten can be what with the sharing of attention and all.
I wanna thank that cat blogosphere for being so incredibly supportive with the purrayers and good karmic thoughts. Zoey couldn't have rebounded without each and efurry one of you pulling for her. Thanks!
