Pumpkin is back from the v-e-t

Grandma an' Grandad picked up Pumpkin from the v-e-t yesterday while Mom was at work. Grandad held him in the green masheen an' they transported the PTU (full of p-e-e), a bag of Hill's Prescription Diet fat boy kibbles, twenty-four cans of some yucky, yucky stinky BADNESS (that I won't eat, but the boys all love ... I want Fancy Feast, but Mom said "no"), syringes, Clavimox, an' insulin.

Supposedly, Pumpkin could be off of the insulin in a few weeks after efurrything is stabilized, but the v-e-t doesn't really think so for him. He had a blood sugar level in the 600s while he was in the hospital an' now it's down to 320-ish, but it needs monitoring an' reducing still.

Mom mailed our cans of Fancy Feast an' Sheba to Michigan to our furriends, an' she made a trip to an animal shelter to give away our WONDERFUL an' DELICIOUS Eukanuba ... sigh. I've been tellin' Mom to email our furriend, Bev, to ask her if there is a Eukauba that we can substitute 'cuz Mom's makin' ALL of us go on Pumpkin's diet ... an' I really don't like his food. Besides, I'm not fat. Pumpkin's not fat either 'cuz you can feel his bones an' see 'em. I'm confused. That Hill's Prescription Diet M/D kibble an' W/D stinky-badness can't be good for you if you won't eat it, right?

At least I've still got Temptations 'cept Mom got a little pack of the new "kitten" Temptations an' they don't taste like my wonderful green Seafood Medley Temptations ... they taste like chick-hen an' I don't like 'em either. Sigh.

We are sorry you do not like the new food. We are starting to get use to the same stuff!

I hope you get used to the new food soon. I don't like my mom to change my food.

We're glad Pumpkin is home, but we sympathize with the foods situation. Just not fair, is it?

Busby and Raymond said...

Wow, lot's of changes at your house. Try to remember that your Mom knows best. (maybe?)

Ginger Jasper said...

Glad Pumpkin is home and I do sympathise with you over the food situation. It must be so hard to get used to other foods when you like the old stuff so much. Good luck. It is for a good reason.. Hugs GJ x

Daisy said...

Getting used to a new diet is very, very hard!

I hope Pumpkin gets all stablized soon!

Mr. R.W. Emerson said...

Diet foods! Stinky badness! So sorry! At least you're part of the team effort to help Pumpkin. May your mom can slip you something good in private.

Best wishes,

We don't like to change our foods either. Stinky Badness doesn't sound like anything we would like.

It's not fair that you all have to suffer. Muffy didn't like the expensive prescription stuff, so Mommy put him back on Meow Mix and Fancy Feast. She and the vet just adjusted his insulin. He got less food, too.
When he was first diagnosed his sugar was 600. It gradally came down to the 200s, then to the 100s.
Whenever he started drinkng and peeing a lot, it meant he needed his insulin adjusted.
He was healthy and happy for over a decade on insulin. He realized the shts ere making him feel better and cooperated. Plus he got a treat afterwards.
Kisses to Pumpkin.

We got the box in the mail today!
OH MY, DMM! You are so generous!
Jaz tore right into a can of Fancy Feast, and the rest of the Purries LOVE LOVE LOVE those nip cigars!
And Pete is in love with the box - yes, the cardboard box - it must smell like his favorite tuxie DMM. I think he has a crush on the box :)
I posted a pic of 4 of the purries getting ready to squabble over the goodies!
Thanks again a million times over!
