43418Tigger Turns 7 !
- Oct 1, 2011Hi everybody --
my precious Scottish Fold little boy Tigger turned 7 years old today. He
was diagnosed with HCM at age 6 months. He had a 3-4 murmur when I bought
him, so we got him checked out right away. He was safely neutered, and is
just fine now. I give him beef-flavor liquid atenolol mixed in his wet food
every morning and evening, and he hasn't had any progression of his HCM.
You can't even tell he's sick, and I thank God everyday for that, and pray
that he will live a normal life without any problems.
HCM is not an automatic death sentence. There are a LOT of kitties on this
list who have lived way past the time their vets said they might fail. But
we know that HCM is a horrible disease, and it can turn on a dime. So we
are always prepared!
Tonight we are all celebrating Tigger's birthday with a new wand toy and
fresh sauteed Sole fillets -- I'll also have a baked potato. C'mon over if
you'd like to join us! I'll throw another potato in for you.
Take care -- Michelle, Susie Q & Tigger Too in Toronto
