I'm back!

Thanks again to everyone for the support. The kitties on the web, and the people they choose to honor with their kitty presence, are just so great. We did get the bloodtests back...thyroid is down, but kidney is up. That is some good news,& some bad news. But it is partially due to the fact that I was convincing mom I was taking the Benazipril (kidney helping medicine) when in fact, I was hiding them in my mouth. Mom didn't find this out until she found a pile of the little white pills behind the curtain, where I was hiding them. (Crazy, but true.)Darn! So now she has started crushing it and putting it into my food. I'll have to find a way to get back at her. For now, however, she is forgiven, as she brought home a King Crab leg for me tonight, and I have to say, yum,yum,yum! Not supposed to have that much protein, but every once in awhile, an old guy's gotta have a little fun. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. It's back to work for mom tomorrow, so I should at least be able to get a decent nap. (here's just a silly little video of me exploring my garden.)
Lotsa love,

Oh Tigger! Hiding your pills! Classy work big fella, what a bummer you got busted. I suppose it's kinda important that you take these pills. A crab leg!! That's the fuud of royalty 'round these parts, your Mum needs to give mine a lesson or two in cat treats. Glad the thyroid levels are good, paws crossed for the kidney levels improving now you are getting that medicine. We couldn't get your video to play, but that could just be our pc :(

Have a very good week Tigger mate!

Wow, hiding your pills?! We're gonna have to remember that trick! But, seriously..... you probably should be taking them to make you feel better, Tigger. But, still, nice work :)

Mom has to look for our meds like she is on a Easter egg hunt because we spit them out, too! We hope you continue to do well!!

Tigger, that was very clever of you to hide your pills, but unfortunately, not at all helpful. Please be good and eat your food with the meds in it now.

And lucky you--a king crab leg! What a nice treat!

Brian said...

That was pretty clever Tigger, but Mom caught on! Oh well, you had best take your meds! I enjoyed seeing your video!

Hi Tigger! Wow we thought that Kirzon was crafty with his pills - but hiding them behind the curtains - genius (though we think you should take your pills so you get better of course!) We think that if they are in a treat or food, it is ok to take them - and usually it will get you extra treats! If your mom hasn't tried them she should see about using pill pockets - most of us think they are super tasty (all of us but Kirzon) and will gladly take a pill with one!

Eric and Flynn said...

Haha! That was crafty hiding your pills. It probably wasn't such a good idea though so maybe you better take them in future. We liked your video.

Well, it was a neat trick until she found the pills...Mom's always pick up on dat stuff and we end up suffering fur it. Yoo really should take yoor meda-sin tho, that way it will make yoo fell better.

Tigger, kittie, not taking your pills kinda defeats the point of all those V*T trips.

We gotta give you props on hiding them, though.

ABBY said...

Oops Mom clicked before she entered the magic word...gotta start over again!

Tigger we are glad you are doing better and *paw high five* for hiding those pills. You're pawsome.

Glad you got your crab legs!

My cat is taking pills for thyroid and I am using pill pockets. They are slightly sticky cat treats with an opening for a pill. I squeeze it around the pill and he has taken every one! If your vet doesn't have them, I can get you a bag. Sure beats sitting on a sick kitty.

The Island Cats said...

Oh Tigger, you are a sneaky one! We're gonna hafta try that next time we gotta take some yukky pills!

We're glad you are doing better though!!

ML said...

Hee hee, Tigger, you are so clever.
Way to go.
But maybe you's better take them pills, we want you well and happy.
Love & Purrs,
