Audrey's Thyroid Check

Audrey reporting:

So here I was, after being pushed into my carrier, before leaving home.  I had a bad opinion about it as you can see.  However, I did not cry at all in the car.


We had a little wait at the Vet's office till my turn came.  I was pretty calm, though I let out some meows every now and then.  A very nice Vet Technician came out to get me.


When she brought me back, she said "What a sweetie!.   She wanted to cuddle with me!"

I forget bad stuff pretty fast, because this is me later in the day, having forgotten the whole thing.


Dr Wilson called yesterday with my results and both my T4 and my kidney function results were in the normal range.     I shouldn't have to go back for 6 months.   Hooray!   Mom did ask him if the fact that I was gaining weight quite fast was an indication they should cut back my medicine some, but he said no.  He said kitties with hyperthyroidism are literally starving and it takes a while for them to get over the feeling they need to eat all the time (Ha!  He doesn't know me - I was ALWAYS like that.)  But we can go back to the office and have free weighings every month if my parents wish.    On Monday I was 10.6 lbs.

  2. That's good news! Mommy says it doesn't just happen to kitties (the starving and eating bit). It happens to humans too! MOL.
    We hope you got a treat for being a good girl at the vet. Just ONE treat. :D

  7. Great news. Instead of going to the office to get weighed, the human should weigh herself, then pick you up and weigh both of you together to find out what you weigh. It won't be exactly to the tenth of a pound, but it'll give an idea.

  8. CK: when our Mom does that, the weights are very inaccurate for some reason. She had come up with 11.5 lbs and I was 10.6 at the Vet. She thinks it is because our scale at home is only to the nearest 0.5 lbs, so if it rounds the one weight down and the other up, it can be a whole pound off.
