Quick update on Lestat...he seems to be doing really well! He has put on weight, it's so nice to pick him up and not feel like he is going to break, and to pet him and not feel just bones! Still have a week or so left on the second round of antibiotics. He isn't liking the liquid one this time....he seems like he kind of gags on it but we are getting most of it down. Still having some tummy issues and going potty on the floor next to his litter box but most of that is because he is associating the litter box with pain so he avoids it and goes next to it. He is slowly starting to use the litter box again though so hopefully he will go back to using that full time....puppy pads get expensive! Again thank you to everyone that has helped out! Still have a little ways to go yet though hoping I can reach my goal which will take care of the last vet appointment and lab work and antibiotics again (fingers crossed he won't need another round! If he doesn't the leftover funds will go towards a couple of new toys for him!)

Lestat had his vet appointment this afternnon (had to reschedule from yesterday). He has gained a pound! The vet seemed impressed with his energy level...his bloodwork was still slightly elevated so he is on the two antibiotics for two more weeks, and then one more checkup and possibly another CBC check, but so far so good! Again thanks to all who have donated! Please keep this going out there, I have almost reached my goal amount and after percentages have been taken out for paypal and for this site I will have enough to cover his last vet visit, labwork and the extra food is needing right now to keep putting on the weight!

Lestat has been done with his antibiotics for a few days now, he seems to be building some muscle back up in his back legs and seems more active again. I take him to the vet on Tues. to recheck bloodwork and see what needs to be done next if anything. Thank you again to all of you have donated and/or shared this campaign for me! Please keep sharing this and getting the word out there I am almost at my goal and any amount will help out greatly to cover this next vet bill!

Hey everyone, Lestat seems to be doing pretty well on his antibiotics....his daddy has been taking care of him for me while I am out of town helping a friend move back home. I called today and got a quote for his next vets appointment which will be on the 27th. Depending on the blood work the vet decides to do it's going to be around $45 and then probably the office visit fee on top of that. So with that said, I am going to keep sharing this and hoping for more donors. Again thank you everyone who has donated and shared this campaign for me. Lestat means the world to me and I want to make sure he gets the care that he needs.

Hey everyone, Lestat seems to be doing fairly well on his meds, he is loving eating the wet cat food and seems to be a little more active. Hopefully things will keep going well. He will be going back to the vet the week of the 25th for more blood work to check the infection levels again. Thank you all again, and please keep sharing this!

I posted the pictures of the bloodwork readings. I know a lot of people like to see proof of where the donation money goes to so here it is for you all! I'll also add the picture of the bill...the vet decided not to charge for the urinalysis so that was a big help as well! Still trying to figure out if I can add more photos....once I do I'll add the picture of the bill

Lestat is home! the urinalysis showed a bunch of junk in his urine...but no crystals! So he is now on two antibiotics, one pill and one liquid for two weeks. I have to take him back in in about two weeks and then we are going to recheck his blood work and see how he is looking. She said that the weight loss could be from the infection since we don't know for sure how long he has had it. He gets to start eating more wet food every day which should help him start putting some weight back on. I'm def. happy with this news....although I do know that there is still the possibility that he could be losing protein in the urine (basically it leaks out and that affects muscle/weight loss) so that's another test that could still be checked if there isn't much change in the next couple of weeks, and a possibility of a type of cancer since it doesn't show up on tests but the vet said he doesn't have any abnormal lumps or bumps and his guts all felt normal so fingers crossed that maybe we found what was going on and this will get better for him! I missed my baby, it's crazy how much animals become like our very own children. Again thank you all so much for all of the help...it's very very hard for me to ask for help and I appreciate each and every one of you who shared the link to Lestats donation campaign and each of you who donated! I am leaving the donation page up for a little while to still see if I can reach that $300 goal (which that will help cover the rest of the costs of the recheck of bloodwork and any other antibiotics and food that he will need, and it also covers the fees from paypal and the site that they charge) Now it's time to go curl up with Lestat! I will keep you all updated with his progress!

K new update on Lestat....he hasn't peed for the vet yet so he has to stay overnight...He took his first dose of the new antibiotic really well (it's a chicken flavored liquid) and didn't spit it out at all, vet is going to call me in the morning and let me know results of urinalysis (as long as he decides to pee tonight) and then we will go from there....going to be really really weird not having him home tonight..won't have anyone trying to steal my food off my fork.....and def. gonna miss my cuddle bug!

Ok quick update on lestat....blood work came back glucose levels were 131 normal is 130 so that's fine they don't worry till it gets in the 200s....kidney tests showed fine but she is going to do a urinalysis to see what the low numbers are....thyroid test came back really really low which is super uncommon but it does tend to do that with infection....so bad news his blood levels that show infection are FOUR TIMES what they should be! This has after an antibiotic shot last tues also....so kitty has a massive infection going on...he is being started on another antibiotic and she is hoping the urinalysis may show where the infection is coming from....I'll know later this evening if he has to stay overnight or not  I'll update when I know more
