I've been beating myself up wondering if there was anything we could have done different regarding Sierra's diagnosed disease. Both vets were unable to put a finger on what may have caused bone cancer in her jaw. Was it the food, vaccines, or is it genetic? Her teeth were good and the possibility of infection was ruled out. We fed her Wellness chicken soft with Performatrin Chicken dry. She ate very little dry and lived mostly on soft food and a bit of meat cut up from our dinner. She loved beef, chicken, fish and she always looked forward to her little bit of milk in the morning just since we moved to the mouse-house. I suppose since she was an indoor/outdoor cat that she may have feasted on a little critter or two. I never liked to think about that.
But cancer is cancer and I'll never really know what caused it.
It's all about keeping my two cats as healthy as can be. Annie has just been to the vet for a thorough check-up. All is good with my little Peach. She has lost a whole pound since this time last year and that's a good thing. Her new food, Royal Canin Digest has been keeping her healthy. And, she loves it. So, she's happy, too.
Her eye is not a concern at this time. Her coat looked good and she got an A+ from Dr. Ann even though she did her best to make the examination difficult by rolling into a ball that resembled a lovely french loaf.
I came home very happy.
This was the very first time Audrey had EVER been left alone in four years. I worried that she would realize we had left, look for us or her mom and then panic. No telling what would happen then. :-(
Well, when we returned she had emptied out the toy box and placed them all over the mouse-house. They were piled high in the kitchen and Kane's blanket was covered.
She met us at the top of the stairs and not a thing was flung at us so I presume she was happy at our return. I'm guessing she did panic just a bit and threw toys around in her fit of despair. OR...she just partied awhile. She's not talkin'.
Sierra - taken two years ago. She was looking at our Christmas table tree thinking it wasn't even worth her energy to climb. :)
Wishing you a peaceful evening.
