Update on Tigger

What with the upset over losing Patches, and numerous other unfortunate distractions in our personal lives, Mom forgot to allow me to write a post about Tigger.

He is doing much better, and is now on medication.  At first, he had to take it every day, then the dose was cut to just half a pill, then half a pill every other day.  After that, it was half a pill every three days, but it turned out, he could not maintain on that dosage, and began throwing up again.

All the while he was also on a special prescription diet food, and none of the rest of us were allowed to have any, because Mom said it was very expensive.  I don't know what that means, exactly, but I think it has something to do with the humans' green papers.

So, Tigger is back on the every-other-day pill dose, and it looks like he will have to take that medicine for the rest of his life.  Something about an irritable stomach or something in his insides.  I don't know; I'm not a doctor, just a cat reporter.

And Mom says she cannot afford the 'spensive food for him, and he is back eating with the rest of us, and seems to be fine.  So it was the medicine and not the food that helped him.  Mom is relieved about that, because the medicine is not so very many green papers.

Tigger is still a lot thinner than he was, but he is not so skinny as he got for a while, either.  He has put back some of his weight, and the v-e-t- said that was a good thing.  I guess.  We still hiss at each other.
