The Dude on a walk...
My boy is an indoor cat.
I have had a very bad habit of allowing my indoor cats to go walking as their end is near. Partially because they are weaker and I can catch them, but also because it is boring sitting around looking sick.
So I found this little dinky collar that goes around his neck and under his elbows. He CAN pull out backwards but he has to do just enough squiggling that I can catch him.
My DCA treatments have VISIBLY shrunk his tumor. I was not taking photos as I found it too depressing. The ones I have... well black is a very slimming color so you can't really see the bulge, but my description of about to have a litter of 10 kittens really summed it up.
Except that he won't eat enough food (he likes treats but only about 20 at a time, I tricked him into some kitten food but that was still only a few) canned or dry or anything twice to keep him alive while I give him the meds, I am slurping pumpkin/A/D pet-food and whatever open can he would not eat in the mix 6-10 fat syringefuls on both of us and hopefully into him daily.
BUT he is looking so good, I am going to keep it up.
No trips anywhere for the holidays... which is a GREAT thing!
