Moosey Needs Purrs and Prayers


Our sweet boy Moosey needs your purrs, prayers and good thoughts.  He hasn't been feeling his best lately, so yesterday we made a visit to the vet, where blood tests revealed that he is now diabetic.  This in itself would be cause for concern, but when also taking into account Moosey's hyperaldersteronism (Conn's Syndrome), kidney problems, and his age, the news is even more upsetting and scary.  We love him so, so much.

The veterinary office was closed today, but we will be discussing next steps for Moosey with them tomorrow.  Our hope is that we can get his diabetes regulated, and keep his potassium at a good level, too.  Of course, anything we consider will be looked at with Moosey's quality of life and happiness our utmost priority.  For now, he's home, and at least we have some idea of what it is we're dealing with.

We'll update you as we are able...

Hugs, headbonks and much gratitude.
