We went to my parents to visit Beau today. I needed to trim his nails and take his scratch-rug to him. He's doing GREAT! They have him so spoiled already!! He sleeps bed with them. He lays between them on him back so they can rub his tummy! Mom said he stays there for hours! He's been watching the birds out the window. We don't have many here, but mom and dad have tons of birds, as they have been feeding them for years. He's eating all the time. He's drinking just fine. His tummy is round, but he is a BIG kitty (almost 17 pounds!). His breathing doesn't seem too bad. It certainly isn't getting worse. He sometimes rattles when he purrs. He LOVES his treats, and has been reminding mom to give him his "special kitty milk" every morning.
He is SO happy there. Even if I found out that the vet was wrong, I could never take him back. They are completely in love with this big boy! It's great to see mom and dad so happy with him, too. I don't know how long my dad will be around. He has so many illnesses, and mom takes care of him all the time. Beau is helping them both to be more relaxed and think of something else besides illnesses. He isn't acting sick at all, just slow, and that's a good thing for my parents!
I know this is long, but I feel so relieved about what just 3 days ago was a horrible tragedy!
