Pigeon update

Thank you everyone for your hopes and purrs. The news from the vet isn't great. She says I'm in kidney failure, which I guess means I'm like Jessie? Momma says I don't have to do the camel treatments yet like she did, but we're changing my food -- I hope it's tasty! -- and some other things. But the bloodwork also showed some problems with my liver. Momma said at least I found a new organ -- she's already dealt with kidneys, heart, brain, stomach, intestines, and thyroid. The vet says it could be something simple like an infection or something skeerier like cancer. I'm going to go back in on Monday to have some more tests to see if they can find anything more out.


It's not great news, like I said. But not really unexpected when you reach your senior years like I have. I'll be 17 in January, after all. So Momma and I are snuggling and hoping that the news is as good as possible. The vet thinks I could have another 1-2 years with my kidneys, so really everything now depends on my liver. If you could keep those paws crossed just a little longer!!
